Poynette Owl's Nest

The Owl’s Nest restaurant on the east edge of Poynette next to County Highway Q.

The Poynette Plan Commission is in favor of making things a little easier when it comes to local restaurants wanting to create outdoor eating areas.

Currently, if a restaurant wants to expand into outdoor dining, it needs to apply for a permit each year to do so. The Owl’s Nest did such a thing for 2020, to help keep patrons coming in during the COVID-19 pandemic. That permit was just for one year, and the Owl’s Nest then did not have outdoor seating in 2021.
