“Great pizza! Could use a remodel...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014 via mobile

Food & service were great! We will likely return, however, hoping they will remodel before we do. The remodel should include the bathrooms which were somewhat gross with dirty walls whose laminate walls were bowed at the base & the ceiling open in places. Glad I visited the restroom after I ate & not before.

“Good Food & Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

Son & I went for an early dinner to aviod all the "seasonal" crowds & traffic that comes to Lake Delton & The Dells during the warm weather. So we had the place to ourselves. The waitress was very nice & attentive. Didn't rush us at all. We started out with the warm Spinach & Artichoke dip with pita chips. Delicious, we could have made this the entire meal!! The pita chips were wedges of grilled pita bread. Ended up taking some home for later as we didn't want to fill up on that & miss out on our meal. We both had the cheeseburgers. Son had french fries & had the Owl Chips. Ordered out burgers med - rare more towards rare. They came out PERFECTLY!!!! Just the way we like them. Nice & juicy! There are some days when you just NEED to have a good old fashioned greasy, grilled burger & this filled that craving perfectly. Not too greasy just perfect.
We could have used more onion but since we were meeting friends afterwards & didn't want to kill them with our onion breath we didn't ask for more onions. But I am sure if we had we would have gotten them. The chips were nicely cooked. Had a good cruch to them & they held up later in the evening when I raided the doggie bag (could only eat half of our meal due to our non stop eating of the spinach & artichoke dip earlier) Son's french fries were the nice thin ones. Again perfectly cooked.
Certainly will be coming back as some of the salads they offer sound very good so I cant wait to try them out.
The only slight drawback was they have outside seating area, which opens into the restaurant so there were flies. But hey it's summer in WI so of course there will be flies. Perhaps the owners could install some sort of screen door system to keep the bugs outside where they belong.

“Excellent food- fresh and homemade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

This place has excellent food. It needs quite a bit of remodeling but you can overlook that for the amount of tasty food and the price. The pizza was great and the Nachos were amazing. Definitely will go back.

“Focus on food not new location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014 via mobile

We are locals and have been frequenting the green owl for years. We were sad as well when they had to change locations from the lake. Yet they still have fabulous food, awesome salads. if you have not tried the mediterranean salad you are missing out. They have not had a chance to change the decor but have some grace. Give them the opportunity and time to remodel. Great cocktails as well!
