We visited OTs for drinks to say good bye to the place which is closing next week. The staff was friendly and the bar was packed. They were out of some items (Jameson Whiskey) but did offer a substitute. The kitchen was not open during our visit. The restrooms were not well stocked. Too many fond memories of this place,...

Just saw in the local paper that the Old Timer restaurant will close on Saturday 1/30/16. The pub will be open through the Super Bowl then will close too. It's truly the end of an era. This is a mainstay in Clinton. My favorites are the burgers and Smithwick's on tap, but I've had many good meals here. The atmosphere... More

This place is a Clinton landmark. Good american comfort food at reasonable prices. The people are always friendly and they seem very concerned about our veterans. My friend had his Vets hat on and our waitress was a vet. Local hangout quiet and just a nice place.

This is my go to spot in town! My favorite is the cheeseburger club or Reuben. New to the menu are the bone in buffalo wings. They are phenomenal! Great selection of draft beer and always a good game on TV!

We rarely go in the dinning room so I'll rate the pub side only. Great food, service and atmosphere can be found here! Can get rather crowded on Fridays and Saturdays but always a great place to gather. The staff are all fabulous and make sure you're happy with everything!
