I love the salmon, the shrimp and grits, blackened chicken with creole alfredo, whatever the special is someone in your party should order it. Good selection of local beers and wide selection of KY bourbons. It has great ambience and good service.

We always enjoy going to the Old Owl Tavern. The food is always good and the atmosphere whether inside or out is enjoyable. The prices are good too.

Great food and courteous staff. The corn pudding is to die for. Would like to eat there again if and when we go back to the area for another tour.

If you're in the Harrodsburg area, it's worth visiting the Owl Tavern for both the bar and the food. The bar serves delicious, interesting, locally-based mixed drinks of their own invention. The food served is excellent- shrimp and grits, catfish, etc.
