Great local pub

Great local pub with pool tables. Lots of locals, but everyone, including the staff, are very friendly. Good service, reasonably priced. Good vacation watering hole.

We enjoy this place for it's comfy atmosphere, friendly staff and good food. Hamburgers are great, and their mexican entrees are yummy. It's a nice, old fashioned place on the main drag.

One would think a restaurant would want to take care of its local customers. Town Club has discontinued their coupon in the Elk Rapids News. Their prices used to be reasonable. Prices have gone steadily higher and higher. The chicken nachos are ridiculously priced especially when a full order is now the size of a half order and all you... More

We love to stop at the Town Club from September to June. It's not crowded or noisy,the food is good, the service is great, and everyone is very friendly. The gyros are a favorite as is the chili. We avoid it in July and August.

PBR, hummus, and a few bucks in the music box. Only late spot in Elk Rapids, easy walk or bike ride.

The food at the town club is far better than one would expect in most local bars. It can get a bit loud in the summers with the tourist crowd but a great go to for a bite to eat any time.

A friend suggested the Prime Rib Special on Thursday nights. We expected the place to be packed, but it was pretty quiet. The prime rib was very good! I had requested the blackened style, very good, not overly blackened with spices. Comes with large dinner salad, baked potato and bread rolls. Our server Ann was more than helpful, very friendly...

This is our favorite bar for bar food! It's so nice to be able go into a bar now that it's against the law to smoke in public. We love The Town Club, great food choices (for bar food), and very friendly servers.
