Came to the Green Town Tavern on Saturday morning breakfast after seeing a concert the night before. Got there about 11:00 am and parked on the street. Greeted by one on the owners standing in front of entrance. Very Friendly. He directed us straight away to a table. Loved the interior. Small and intimate. Maybe a dozen tables. Most of... More

We went here to have a quick bite before heading to the Genesee Theater up the road. We only had a half hour so sat at the bar. We told the waitress/bartender we had to order, eat, and pay very quickly. We ordered the deluxe nachos, which I would highly recommend, along with 2 margaritas. The nachos came out as... More

This little bar tries hard and the staff is great. A little above average burgers and salads. A clean place and about 12 beers on tap and more IPA's and craft beers behind the bar. Great place to come in for lunch or dinner and a cold beer. A lot of regulars and they work hard to make you feel... More

Found this gem of a spot when googling for food places for lunch. Local beer, fabulous Italian beef sandwiches, and owners stopping by table to chat. Great choice all around.

Stopped for lunch after fishing on Lake Michigan. Had an excellent selection of craft beers. For appetizers we had their hand breaded mushrooms, jalapeno poppers and onion rings. We told the manager that we were referred to this place by Windy City Salmon.He then asked us if we had caught any fish and that he would be happy to prepare... More

Stopped here for a meal before heading to the local theater. Was very disappointed as it wasn't anything like the picture posted on their site. The food was okay but seemed overpriced considering it's just a bar.

We really enjoyed it. Loved the atmosphere; liked the food; liked the beer choices. My wonderful husband (beer snob) was able to find a couple of beers here he hasn't had. It wasn't too far from the Genesee. We walked to the theater. We'll be back.

What a fun place, Our daughter chose this place by the picture with the white walls & chairs from the photo. She was disappointed at first look but glad we gave this a chance. Our service Dave & bartender Steve were both a HOOT. They treated us & the regulars with the same fun friendliness & respect. The food was... More

The food quality is inconsistent. The service is spotty. And the prices are high for pub food. I would keep looking.
