Or family loves Old Towne. The staff is great with kids. The menu is huge and the cocktails are all good. Beer selection is excellent as well. The tvs are everywhere so it's a great place to catch the game!

Old Towne is one of our "Go To Places" when we want bar food that is better than bar food. The wings, the wraps & the burgers are all excellent with a ton of beers on tap and great cocktails while watching a game...Enjoy!
