White Owl Tavern & Restaurant
Ranked #2 of 6 Restaurants in Beach Lake
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 9, 2017 via mobile

Really good: French Onion Soup, Onion, Cheddar ale soup, dinner rolls and the salads. Penne Vodka and prime rib.

Stay away from the chicken masala. There is a spice or some thing in there that does not belong and had a medicinal after taste. I ate two hard candies to get the taste out of my mouth. Also the chicken was way overcooked.

Waitress was friendly but a few errors were made and reminders needed. If you order drinks with your meal they should be served with the meal.and not when you are halfway done eating. Also a long wait for our food.

2 soups, Penne Vodka, chicken masala, prime rib king cut plus a mixed drink and a wine coat almost $85.00 plus tip.

We will go.back and try the bar menu which looked good.

Pros:
Waitress was very nice
Lovely dining area

Cons:
Overpriced food.
Steak quality was poor. Ribeye was tough and chewy.
French onion soup extremely salty.
Wings were tasteless.
Refills are not free.
Stink eye from locals upon entering. No joke. We were starred at the whole time and made to feel like we walked into someone's personal home and interrupted their meal. It made the whole experience uncomfortable.
It really is out in the middle of no where.

Overall, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

Well, it is in the middle of nowhere, but WELL WORTH the trip. Don't be fooled by the outside or location.....the inside and service is nice and very good. We went on the weekend for the prime rib special also had the chicken marsala which was excellent. Salad, bread, all great. Be sure to ask for the bar menu in addition to the dinner menu so you can order different appetizers, like wings. Staff was very attentive and nice, too. We'll definitely go back again and again.

After listening to a clever radio ad about the White Owl, we decided to find it and give it a try. It definitely is hidden and not much to look at from the outside, but once inside, you are greeted by a great staff. "Cam" is terrific behind the bar. The dining room staff is efficient, friendly and welcoming. The meal was very good. Blackened flounder was moist and full of flavor. The steak needs a bit of seasoning for the sear, but was a quality cut. Under new management, this place is get better every day because they care. Give it a try. It's worth the adventure.

My husband ordered a med rare hamburger , it came out very well done, he showed it to the waitress, they offered to bring him another one but we waited over an hour for the first one, so he dowsed it in ketchup and ate it. I ordered what was suppose to be a double king cut prime rib, medium rare, it also came out med well, and it was the smallest, regular king cut I ever saw. I actually asked the girl if this was a double king cut and she assured me it was. We didn't want to be those difficult type of customers, so instead of complaining about everything, we paid the bill and vowed to never return !!
