My 3 sisters, sister-in-law, and niece had lunch there on our Girls weekend. I had never been to downtown Eau Claire and wasn't sure what to expect. The restaurant had the perfect atmosphere we were looking for, we all had a drink or a beer and they were delicious. We all split 3 entrees and there was plenty of food,... More

This is a great bar in downtown Eau Claire. The food is good and the beer selection excellent. The summer is fun as they open up the doors and with cooler nights they have a fire pit

We beat the rush for supper on a Friday night so no problem getting a table. The wait staff were all very friendly. We had a hamburger (good), pulled pork sandwich (a bit dry and lacking flavor) and fish tacos ('good' but disappointed that the fish was breaded). Sweat potato tots were very good. All in all a fun place... More

We were passing through town and wanted to eat downtown Eau Claire. This spot looked promising as it had a game room where we hoped the kids could burn off some energy. We were pleasantly surprised by the cool atmosphere, friendly staff, great game room and good food.

We always get excellent service here. Great food & atmosphere. We had lunch on this visit and each had a beer. I had the sandwich special of the day, which was The Italian Stallion sandwich, which was very good. Hubby had mussels, which was also one of the daily specials. Everything was great as always!

Eau Claire is really making efforts to revitalize the downtown area, and this is a great example of what can be a successful venture. A great find that combines restaurant plus bar plus a games room under the one roof. There is plenty of parking adjacent and the place itself is large. I was here for lunch and the fish... More

It was my daughter's birthday weekend, and this mom needed to take a road trip to celebrate with her. After some shopping, we decided to try the Cowtown Saloon aka The Livery for lunch. It was a great decision and a delicious lunch. We started with onion rings with chipotle sauce and chips, salsa and guacamole. They were fantastic. Since... More

Our family of 4 ate dinner here during a recent visit. Dined upstairs, nice views and great spaces with a "cowboy feel/look" like a saloon. Good appetizers, nice beer lists on tap includes several craft brews. Menu had a variety of dinners and sandwiches. Food was prepared well-meals were great but my pasta dish could have been a served warmer,... More

Eau Claire is on the rise and it's because of places like this. Busy, but only a 20 min wait; an interesting menu, but not too experimental; a full bar with a solid beer selection, but not over the top. A must try is the curried poutine. We will return!

We were in town for UWEC Homecoming. Everyone recommended The Livery from friends to the alumni director at UWEC. Two friends joined me. Cassie was wonderful, rolling with the punches when I kept changing the reservation I had. She even greeted me when I walked in! Across the board awesome. We were seated at the "bowling pin table" which was... More
