I went to the Blue Owl while on a recent trip. The town of Kimmswick is a cute little town about 25min. from downtown St. Louis. The restaurant had a wait of about 45min., so we decided to checkout the dessert counter. The pies and cakes looked amazing. The waitresses all had on aprons and the decor had the feel of an old mid western home. It was decorated for the up coming holiday. We were paged when our table was ready. Our waitress was at the table in moments and explained the specials of the day and made several suggestions. She also suggested we have a beer or a glass of wine...it was 11am. She gave us a few moments to look overlook the extensive menu and was back to take our order. She tried to up sell every part of our order at least twice and continued to do so for the rest of the meal. I ordered the Reuben with potato salad and my companion had the Famous white chicken chili and we shared a slice of Levee High Apple Pie smothered in caramel and pecans, German chocolate pie( which was the best thing I had during my visit) and had one of their special ice teas. It took at least 45mins. for our food to come. I found the food to be...average, good but not great. I was very disappointed. St. Louis has so many Great restaurants.. I wanted to be able to say this place was great, but I can't. I will not be back.
