Service was very good, active in making sure we were taken care of, food was ok, I had a sandwich and my wife had taco’s, neither was exceptional. Biggest problem was the sound coming from the TV’s, extremely loud, made it hard to talk.

Old Towne has a pretty extensive menu of bar and grill type food and it's all pretty good. Don't expect anything gourmet but it all tastes good. Beer selection is decent but there are better places in town for that. Salads are better than average....More
