One of our favorite restaurants when we're looking for great food and service in Grass Valley. The Owl is consistently excellent and offers a wonderful variety of food and drink. Our party of six picked from across the menu and no one needed a doggy bag, the plates were picked clean. Make reservations, it can get busy especially on weekends.... More

This restaurant in downtown Grass Valley is half historic bar and half restaurant. They have prime rib on the weekends and it is simply fantastic. They also have a complete lunch and dinner menu and a full bar. The wait staff are both experienced and efficient.

Wonderful "Billy Blue" bread and delicious ribeye steak, cooked to perfection. And to finish the meal, Irish Coffee! Atmosphere was great, and we sat right by the cozy fireplace on our visit. Service was a little slow and disjointed, thus the four stars, but otherwise the meal was great!

My wife and I went to the Owl for a spur of the moment dinner out. I had a NY strip and she had the sea bass. We enjoyed our dinner very much. The service was prompt and courteous and the atmosphere is really warm and comfortable. Nice place for a couples night out.

Charming restaurant and bar. Take advantage of the happy hours in the bar during the week. From the cook to the waiter to the rack of lamb or prime rib, we enjoy it all! Also try the blue boy bread!

The Owl is an old establishment with an interest history and even a ghost!. If you want a great steak this is the place to go. Try the billy blue bread.

After 30 years we were invited to go out to the Owl for dinner. Haven't been in over 30 years. OMG, what a delight to have dinner here again. Greeted immediately, seated promptly. Water, bread and drinks brought within 5 minutes. (recommend the blue cheese appetizer!) I had the Chicken Marsala with garlic mash. Chicken tender, vegies cooked to perfection.... More
