You would be swimming in the bay if you tried to get any closer to the water than this spot. Tables are right on the dock. Fun party vibe with mix of boaters, bikers, and families all enjoying the food, drink and breezes. Fish tacos were pretty good. Service was a low point.

Don't come to Big Owls expecting a fussy place. It's low key tiki hut bar on the end of a pier. The T at the end of the pier offers picnic tables with umbrellas -- and a fabulous view of the goings-on of the Kent Island Narrows. The water view is mesmerizing and there are a few places for boats... More

My wife & I live a hop, skip & a jump away from The Big Owl. It's fun, lively & always entertaining. It's our immediate go-to place for a casual drink on the water. Highly recommend the Fish Tacos & Coconut Shrimp. Be there when the sun disappears for a free shooter & a great sunset!

I stopped on my way back from the beach and I'm glad I did. This is a nothing fancy Tiki Bar sitting on the pier overlooking the water. The beer was cold, the food was good, the service was friendly, and the customers at the bar we're very friendly to someone who was just passing through. I will stop there... More

A tiki bar is a tiki bar, and Big Owl's is all that. Located out on the pier it's a wooden bar and wooden stools and picnic tables. It has a good, mostly seafood menu. The drinks come fast and the staff is very friendly. They look like they are having a good time along with everybody else. But the... More

The BIG Owl doesn't pretend to be a up scale boater bar like others around it but it the best water bar on the Narrows. It can get busy but there's a good reason for it so be patience it worth it. Shout out to Dean.

A great spot for evening drinks. Sunsets are pretty decent. Typically an older crowd (over 40). Best time to go is Monday through Thursday!

Pulled up to the restaurant on my boat in a whipping current with my two sons. Instead of offering to throw me a line or assist me in docking the boat, the DJ proceeded to make a scene out of it saying that I was incompetent, and unable to captain a boat. He announced to the entire restaurant to "look... More

Fun place right on the water as it is a dock bar. When my wife asked if they had a gluten free menu the waiter replied "Mam, this is a tiki bar". It truly is...however, they did a great job of tweeking the choices on the menu to accomodate her. Fun entertainment at night w various small bands. Fun Place!
