“terse staff, limited menu”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2013

the food menu is very limited. the bartender didn't smile even while greeting us, so expecting a smile while serving was obviously too much to ask!!
the drinks were good- wish the service was better. the place was almost empty with just 4 people in the whole bar.
Not going back again.

“Good atmoshere, good beer, marginal lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Skiing at Sundance ... went for lunch at Foundry Grill and they were doing a brunch , so went next door to Owl Bar for lunch and a beer. Atmospere is great (old log cabin with historic bar). Beers were nice and cold and service was excellent. However, food took a long time and pork Tacos (daily taco special) were cold, and salad was missing ingredients that the menu said it would have. ... The french fries were great though.

“Cozy Spot for Lunch of Apres Ski”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

What fun! Adorable taproom at Sundance. Butch Cassidy is said to have sat at the bar (before it was moved from Wyoming).

The menu selections are limited, but the cooking is top notch -- try the tacos and the Sundance label wine and beer.

“Escape to this cozy mountain bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

At the Sundance resort where you just might bump into a real movie star or two. Log cabin design with big fire places and rustic furnishings. Nice drink menu and adequate beer selection although draft beers are all 3.2 per Utah laws. Sliders with onion rings are fabulous as is the iceberg wedge.

“My favourite "bar" in Utah!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2012

I know that the above statement is an oxymoron but maybe Owl Bar doesn't know that Utah is now a dry state. Owl Bar was moved to Sundance from Thermopolis, Wyoming. I am told that this very large piece of furniture was where Butch Cassidy's Hole-in-the-Wall Gang used to drink. I guess the proprietor of this establishment must have a passion for this sort of memorabilia to go to this trouble. What a hero; I'd love to have his autograph. We didn't get to see the live music. The food is excellent for a bar. The atmosphere is outstanding. Through the windows you can see the trees and the snow to make you feel like your really are in mountains. Oh, by the way, avoid sitting next to the fire exit to the left of the bar (unless you are a smoker.) Having the door open frequently is bad enough, having people walking back into the room stinking of cigarette smoke is disgusting.
