We enjoyed our burgers and drinks on a recent Saturday afternoon - in fact the dining was quite nice. The only drawback was our server. It was not at all crowded when we stopped in, was a quite overcast and raw day - yet we felt rushed throughout. No rudeness - just clearly hoping we would throw the food and... More

The food selection was not large but everything we tried was perfectly prepared and tasty. The liquor and wine selection was large and varied enough for the novice or connoisseur. Good enough to dine at 2 days in a row.

We came based on a recommendation from our daughter, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just downtown for the day and decided to come here. Surprisingly interesting and not boring for a place with so many tourists around!

I really enjoyed this resto. Great location and a very attractive space. I was alone so ate at the bar. I settled for a pub burger but there are interesting things on the menu. Want to return and have the game hen. It looked great!! Do go here, lots of fun, bartenders are great!

The hostess greeted us right away and even knew our names when we said the reservation time. Our server , Katherine, anticipated our every need as diners and made us feel welcome. The atmosphere was warm, cozy, and relaxed. The food was superb and the chocolate custard was amazing. We will be back

A first time experience for us at the Red Owl Tavern and we weren't disappointed. Our party of four walked in without reservations around 6pm on a Saturday night and were immediately seated. Our waitress, Amy, was quick, friendly and knowledgeable of the drink and food menus. She made great recommendations for our table and all of the entrees were... More

We managed to get there an evening without reservation. This is the kind of place you go after work and enjoy dinner. The place was a bit dark (not a lot a light) but it gives a cosy ambiance. Food wise, there was a small hiccup with an order so we had to wait a bit more. But otherwise it... More

We stopped here for lunch during our visit to the historic part of the city. I ordered off their restaurant week special menu. I got duck deviled eggs, pulled pork bbq sandwich and a desert. My meal was very good. My wife ordered their Philly steak and cheese and it was amazing. I wished I had ordered that as it... More

I stopped by for breakfast. I ordered the simple two eggs over easy with potatoes, bacon and toast. All of it was exceptional. The staff was very nice and helpful without being overly doting. I could see from the long, well stocked bar that it is most likely a great night spot as well.

I loved coming in from the cold, sidling up to the bar and having a hot toddy while watching football. It is such a cozy bar and restaurant. The staff are wonderful. Great breakfast and brunch.
