Food is bad, service is terrible and bar tenders are rude. If you want a good place go to Daly's or any where else downtown but this place.

Watch the Packer game, people were friendly lively. The interior decor is unique combination of rustic and industrial. Lots of beers on tap, good snacks, great atmosphere! High energy level.

Townie's puts excessive garlic in everything... too bad. Malarkeys which is the adjoining bar had a great band... but if you aren't a local, prepare for the loneliest experience possible... there were 200 people in there and all 200 literally knew one another. Mom and...More
