Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Small family oriented restaurant and pool hall. Delicious hamburgers and fries plus a wide range of home cooked food.

No better burger and fries to be found. Nothing like eating next to a billard (pool) table listening to the local gossip. Everyone who is anyone in Owen County eats here once a week. Just steps from the Owen County Courthouse.

This little restaurant on the corner is delightful. It makes you think of a 50's style place. Excellent burgers, fries, onion rings, shakes...it has it all ! Reasonably priced too. If you fancy a game of pool, they have you covered there too. The staff...is always friendly and helpful.More

Growing up in Owen County, the Family Billiards restaurant (otherwise known as the "Pool Hall"), was always the place to be. I don't know a single person that doesn't love their "Ralph Burgers" and french fries or tater tots. Also, their desserts are fabulous &...the service is as friendly as you would imagine. If you like diner-style food, you'll love it. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because they allow smoking.More

Locals love this place and refer to it as the "Pool Room." Great cheeseburgers and fish tail sandwiches. Prices are very reasonable. This place has been around for years. In fact, I grew up eating here as a teenager and I come back whenever I'm...in town visiting family.More

The food is what you'd expect at a 'pool hall' although it's a pretty good-sized menu and most is above average. Very nice people own it and work there. Two drawbacks: Only open M-F and they allow smoking -- which a lot of patrons do....The smoke is sometimes more than I can take.More

So much more than a pool hall. Great American comfort food. Great burgers and all the traditional sides. Wonderful service. Locals abound. I wish this was a smoke free restaurant, the only negative. Not to be missed.

Lots of booths and tables for plenty of seating. Be prepared for a Smokey atmosphere. (It's a small town pool hall.) Their fish or pork tenderloin sandwich are always pleasing. Small town friendly service.
