New owners reopen historic Hoot Owl eatery in Shawangunk
TOWN OF SHAWANGUNK - Unexpected but pleasantly surprising - that’s how the reopened Hoot Owl restaurant has been described, according to new owners Arif Khan and Sabeen Hasan.

Some may have known it as a dive bar, but now it has had a remodel, redo and updating that made me very curious. So, I grabbed one of my best friends and made the quick trip to take look, have a taste and see if I would be Fed Well...
