Courthouse is located just east of the courthouse. Good is good but can be pricy. Check the menu online as they have a new menu now.

Welcome to the Courthouse Pub. Located in Historic Downtown Manitowoc, at the corner of Eighth and Washington across from the Courthouse in City Center, we provide fine dining in a comfortable Pub environment. Open Monday through Saturday from 11:00 AM - 9:00 PM, the Pub offers a selection of hand-crafted appetizers, luncheon salads and sandwiches, and a full dinner menu. Our menus highlight gluten-free items, as well as vegetarian entrees, and sized-right entrees -- a smaller portion at a lower price. Courthouse Pub is also a microbrewery, brewing craft beers each month for your enjoyment. Some are seasonal, some are guest favorites. We also offer some of the finest wines in Wisconsin with a Wine Program recognized since 2002 by Wine Spectator Magazine's Award of Excellence. Whether it's an intimate dinner for two, a celebration with one-hundred friends, the Courthouse Pub's staff is equipped to handle your event with quality service and an attention to detail that has become the hallmark of our restaurant. We believe eating out should be fun and satisfying, and we try our best every day to bring that experience to our guest.
