The restaurant features a vibrant, casual bar and dining area within a clean, warm space featuring wood floors, subway tile, zinc cladding, and industrial steampunk elements. The kitchen opens onto one of two dining rooms and the two-sided soapstone bar is built into the facade, serving 50 craft draft beers to a large bar area inside and a 60-seat beer garden outside.

We like it here, it's always an easy and comfortable place to fall into last minute. The food is good and the drink list is fantastic. The have a good happy hour deal as well. However, for some reason their appetizers always seem a little off. The calamari is primarily hot peppers and lemons with very little actual calamari, and the charcuterie board is comically small.
I had the fish& chips and it was fantastic! My husband’s favorite is the double stack.
Loved it. I went with two kids on a week night and we had a great time.
Food was good, not great. The ny strip steak was half meat and half gristle. I had to leave half of it on my plate because my steak knife literally could not cut through the tough fatty parts that made up huge chunks of the steak. The cheese plate was good, and the muscles slightly better than fine. The restaurant was quiet and mostly empty, and it was a nice atmosphere for 5 adults and one 5 year old. Not a bad place to eat if you’re in the area, but not worth going out of your way for.
The Brunch menu at Owns' is quite good compared to their pub food.
We enjoy this neightborhood destination but had a very unenthusiastic waitress.
Family get together
Solid gastropub...varied menu, everything very good. Service was veeery good. I like this place!
Awesome space! They were busy but the manager Brian was great and accommodating through out our wait. I would strongly encourage a reservation and know that Saturday between 6-8 they are busy!
Bartenders are really nice and suggest cocktails or beers to suit your tastes. Food is very tasty.
My first time at Owen's Ordinary was for lunch with a friend. The music was a little louder than I like for comfortable volume conversation. However, the food and service was great. Friendly and clean environment.
Adam is a fabulous server! The Tuna Burger is soo wonderful but I recommend ordering the fries extra extra crispy to experience them at their best!
Great food as always!
Great atmosphere and the best Big Mac hamburger in town!
Very nice tavern menu and atmosphere. Extensive beer list, good value for the price
As the restaurant touts its beer selection, we asked a question about the beer menu and our server said 'if that's what it says on the menu'. That was our first interaction and it went downhill from there. Very disappointed in service and food was mediocre.
The food and service were excellent, and the draft beer selection is unsurpassed!
Food was not great and overpriced. The service was just weird. Our waitress was hovering over our table the entire time, but never really brought us what we asked for. We also paid with a gift certificate. The manager had to run in, and he asked (in front of the waitress) how much tip we wanted to include. Awkward! He then ran the total, and we had some remaining on the card which he didn’t give back to us! We had to ask for our card back with the remaining balance on it. The whole experience was strange. I don’t think we will be going back again.
Although our waitress was very nice, she didn’t give us great service. I believe she may have had too many tables and more than she could handle. We had a larger party so I understand it can be a bit more complicated but our food order came out incorrectly and when I tried to get another staff member to help they were very rude and almost made me feel like I was the one in the wrong for simply just trying to get the food I asked for. Once our food finally came out it was cold and one of the members in our party actually had to send her order back twice because they kept getting it wrong! We ordered bottomless drinks and had to keep begging to get more drinks so it’s almost not even worth it. 20% Gratuity was included automatically due to the size of our party maybe that’s why they didn’t care since they knew they would get tipped regardless. Sad to say we had high hopes for this place but I wouldn’t waste my time coming back nor would I ever recommend anyone to them.
Great beer menu. Somewhat limited food options. Service was poor at the start. We flagged down someone who actually worked at the bar to take our drink orders after a long wait. Service eventually improved. Go for the beer and the noise--not the food.
Very good beer menu. Slot of variety and selections even though some of the beer prices were a little high. Food was average. Decent flatbread but calamari wasn’t great. Burger pretty good but they forgot the cheese and bacon so they brought out a cold slice of cheese on a plate.
Nice place excellent service just noise level was a bit high and prices perhaps also on the high side.
Service was the slowest EVER
burgers and chicken sandwhiches were good. The food is consistent there.
Service was pleasant. The fish and chips was average. The fish was too wet and bland.
Old bay brat was good but too heavy on the mustard on the brat and a bit too spicy. Would have been better if it was on the side instead.
The HH mango margarita was tasty. Rosemary GT was really great.
Baked Chocolate chip dessert was decadent but a bit too sweet.
We visited Owen's Ordinary for dinner and drinks while in town for a work conference. The outside seating was great. Really good beer selection and beer advice from our waiter. The food was solid. I wouldn't go here for a serious business conversation, but for a casual, fun time with colleagues -- it's a great pick! I will go again next time we're in town.
The hostess was not in a good mood. We ordered 2 appetizers that never came.
I had the great grains bowl with tuna. The tuna was fantastic, but the kale was sandy and gritty, and the “charred” broccoli was steamed. Had to drown it in dressing to make it edible. I ate the tuna and avocado and left the rest. It was really bad. My husband’s salad wasn’t much better. We heard good things about the burgers and fish and chips. Should have done that.
Super helpful manager who knew the beers really well. Food was good and restaurant was relatively quiet compared to the bar and outdoor area.
Wonderful fish and chips - with vinegar, English style, if you wish. Great service. Noise level just too much for me. In good weather I would go back and sit outside.
Excellent service and meal and menu options for all. Thanks!
Very bad service.
1. Waited nearly an hour for order to be taken.
2. Had to remind server to bring the drinks we ordered.
3. Three of the four ppl in our party were served their meal; the forth meal came 15 minutes later- causing the others to eat cold food.
Taco was WAY too salty.
Beers were good.
I hosted a work lunch with a total party of 9. The restaurant was almost empty during the lunch rush. There were only a few seated tables throughout. The waiter was attentive until it took almost 15-20 minutes for our cans of soda to be delivered to the table. The food was fresh and tasty. The brown bag portions are generous. I'd recommend this place for a Happy Hour due to their large craft beer list, which we didn't have a chance to try.
Food was good. Service was poor.
My friends and I came for brunch to celebrate my birthday. The food was delicious (I had PB and J waffles and my mouth is watering again just thinking about them) and the service was excellent, from the hostess to our waiter. Thank you for a great experience!
Start with the positive. The dinner portion of our experience was fine. Server was attentive and answered all questions. The meal for the most part was very good. We did have a minor allergy issue (no fault of restaurant) and they comped the entrée which was unexpected but much appreciated. Unfortunately, the bad part was the first impression, the bar. We were helped after minor wait by the bartender, Sky. She was very professional and knew what she was doing although we did have to ask for cocktail menu which was separate from beer menu. Anyway, she got us drinks pretty quickly, but when our friends joined us, it took a really long time for someone to take their order. We finally got a gentleman to come over to our section of the bar (more activity on other end from outdoor seating, service bar, etc. thus less attention to where we were seated) and he took our order. It seemed a little awkward and we felt like he was either new or not well-trained. He took the order for the margarita and glass of malbec and walked away. Next thing we notice is that our bartender is washing glasses, racks in / racks out. We thought that was very strange, so we got his attention to where he told us that he had given our drink orders to another bartender. Maybe he was a bar back? He should have told us that he had 'subcontracted' his work to this other bartender who was making the margarita. Sky came back to us and tried to help which she did but when apologizing, her voice went up a few decibels and her bright smile was almost over the top with some sarcasm. Even when the bartender (subcontractor) presented the margarita, it was awkwardly placed on the bar, maybe on top of a loose menu but certainly not well done (no bev nap or coaster?) for a high dollar cocktail. Overall, the bar experience was disappointing which dropped my score down to average. I'm telling you this so you can retrain staff and provide better service to what is a very competitive market.
Arrived on time for our reservation and got seated within 5 minutes. Waited another 5 minutes for a waiter to come by and ask “has anyone taken care of you.” When we said no, he said okay... and then walked away. After a few minutes he came back and asked if he we wanted any drinks - and filled 2 of the 4 water glasses on our table. We put in our drink order. 20 minutes later 2 of our drinks arrived and we were told the bar was “slammed” so we’d have to wait “a few minutes” for the other drinks. With the 2 drinks that arrived, he delivered a clearly used (empty) glass from another table. We asked him if we could order our food and to provide water for the other 2 people in our party. He left, without a word, then came back, filled the water glasses (splashing water all over the table) and walked away without taking our order. At the 30 minute mark, we decided to go elsewhere because we were hungry, so we flagged him down to ask for the check. He returned with the manager, who comped our first round of drinks (the 2 we had received) and apologized for the lousy service. We opted to leave and will not be going back. The place was not even busy at all and this is definitely the worst service I have ever gotten there (I’ve been there 3-4 other times before).
Food was good. Service pretty good. Great beer list.
Had a great time drinking and eating with friends at the outdoor tables. Waiter provided excellent service. Hostess was good just not the most friendly but she seemed a little overwhelmed. Seemed reluctant to seat us before the start of our reservation despite empty tables. Overall great, though.
Food took a while but service made up for it. Great spot for lunch or dinner.
