This is a great spot with friendly staff, and locals mixed with tourists. Always a friendly bar scene with many regulars. Food and service is very good with a limited but quality menu. A great bar nude on the wall which dates back to whenever!...More

Wood and exposed brick give this restaurant the feel of the original 1898 tavern. Wait staff could be seen hugging several apparently regular patrons. Staff was attentive without being overbearing. The U-shaped bar filled up quickly. Food is solid. The veggie pits was excellent.

We enjoyed our casual dinner here and liked the variety on the menu--southwestern fare, burgers, salads and soups, a number of vegetarian options. Our waitress was delightful. The food, however, left much to be desired. The recommended gumbo was unlike any we'd had before, and...More

Good food but nothing fancy. Friendly staff, burgers, fajitas- sports bar fare. Nice place, a little loud so be prepared .

Ann Arbor is, well, Ann Arbor. And you expect things to be a little "different". The trendy new places on Main have all seemingly aimed at upscale foodie. But Old Town remains, like its name, old Ann Arbor. Good food, service, and value - all...More
