Ambience and location were great. Hostess was very accommodating. Server wasn’t very knowledgeable about the type of oysters. Drinks were great, well balanced. Steak was good, not wonderful. Remaining dinner was balanced.

Both of us had the three course meal, both the Ribeye and the Filet were excellent. Service was super, would not change a single thing about the evening.

Sat at the bar while waiting for our table. We enjoyed being there so much that we ended up just ordering our food at the bar. The bartender, Mindy, was great; attentive and helpful. We both ordered the filet mignon and it was cooked perfectly! Everything on the plate was hot and cooked very well. It all was delicious. We enjoyed the ambiance and feel of the place. The hostesses were also both very cheerful and welcoming. The only thing I’d love to see is more local food offerings. We live in a place with lots of great local organic farms so it would feel that much better eating a higher standard of ingredients. Overall, an excellent experience!

This was my 3rd time here. First was great, second was undesirable, third was excellent!! Calamari was spot on. Wedge is very big but delicious. Prime filet was tops!! It rivaled any other steak restaurant in the valley and I’ve tried all of them. It was phenomenal!! Prices are fair for the quality of food. I will definitely be back. And a big thanks to Tina! Your service was extraordinary!!! Thanks for taking care of our table! Great service is hard to come by anymore and you nailed it 👍🏼

We were there at 5:00 pm on Friday and got in before the weekend crowd. It was a very quiet atmosphere until more people were seated, starting at 5:45. Our server was very prompt and personable. My husband said the smoked prime rib was the best he ever had, and the sauce on my chicken was one of the best I've tasted. We were there for our anniversary, and the hostess made a point to congratulate us.

All was good except we had received an email announcing three course dinners. When we arrived the waiter said only Monday-Thursday. Sign on front door did not say that nor the email. Okay we had a good time and dinner but that left a negative taint to the evening. Waiter was excellent- Max.

The only thing I would change was the seasoning on my steak as it was a bit much. When I order a quality ribeye I want to taste the steak. Otherwise very good.

Food is always spot on- sage as far as social distancing.
Wonderful experience.

We were very impressed with our first visit to Owyhee Tavern. Due to current circumstances and probably because it was a weeknight, we had the dining room to ourselves (lots of folks outside though). We took advantage of their 3 course meal for $30, we both chose the center cut ribeye and it was to die for! Cooked perfectly and so much flavor, I was tempted to lick the plate! We also had a charcuterie plate which was amazing, and our sides were all delicious. We were too full for dessert but our server boxed them up for us and we enjoyed it the next day. Our server, Tina, was so delightful, she was attentive but not hovering, and had so much knowledge about everything, she is a true professional. Our overall experience was quite perfect, we’ll definitely be back for the great food and service.

The only complaint was that all outdoor tables were dirty. Not too big a deal, but during coronavirus times it would be nice to know they were being more on top of it. That being said, a great server, a great happy hour, and good food. Will return.

Our server was wearing a mask, however it was loose and not covering her nose. With the recent spikes related to the service industry, this is irresponsible. All restaurants will be shut down in a matter of time if people don’t follow the safety guidelines in place. I will not dine here again.
