Townie Tavern

Liked: Location. Disliked: Food. Food was basic small town tavern food, burgers and fried stuff, not crazy priced, but definitely not a 40 dollar meal. The service appeared uni-formally strung-out, and even-though the wait staff was short 1 person, ownership (management?) failed to lend a hand... read more

Stopped downtown Manistee after a day at the beach....had a great burger and crispy fries, chicken tenders for our daughter tasted freshly made....hard to beat a happy kid and a cold beer either way.....especially with this outdoor setting! Our server was nice enough, but felt generally unwelcome by staff inside and by bartenders....it seemed as if we were an inconvenience

We stopped in here for lunch while on a camping trip in early July. We had been here a few years ago and go a kick out of the odd bartender and how he complained about his ex-wife. We like a good pub and grub type place and this fits the profile. We walked in and the person that I... More

We ate here while passing through. Is was in a great location right downtown and within walking distance to our hotel. There was a large group out on the deck so we opted to eat inside. The service was a little slow due to the large group but the waitress made sure we were accommodated while we waited for our... More

Stopped with out of town friends for a beer and burger, big mistake. In the middle of the afternoon the "server" had very loud very profane rap music playing. Lots of F-bombs and such. The "server" spent most of her time in the back playing with her phone and dancing. We left after one beer. Worst place ever.

Food was thrown together (poor presentation). There was more food to be seen on the salt and pepper shakers than I could stomach. After pointing this out to our waitress she brought us another dirty set. I the went on safari myself, looking for a clean set on any other table, they were all filthy. Behold......., on the sill of... More

We come here most summers when we are vacationing in Manistee. Good food, wonderful location on the river and we love the deck out back with the ivy on the walls. Very pretty and relaxing place to have a meal.

I went to downtown Manistee in hopes of finding a gem, instead I settled here. Walking in there was a weird old bar smell. They have a patio out back but it was busy. I ordered chicken breast, it was dry but had good flavor. Everything else didn't seem seasoned. Not sure what I was expecting but it was more... More
