“A Must Visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is our type of bar/eatery! An authentic old-fashioned bar. Not pretentious, nor "touristy." Clean, polished wood bar, formica tables, and attentive, friendly waitstaff. We both ordered a Gyro for $6.95 served w/chips and a pickle spear. Exceptional! The grilled pita was thick & soft. Plenty of gyro meat, sweet onion, sliced tomatoes, feta cheese, lettuce, and tzatziki sauce. As one reviewer wrote, "Great BAR atmosphere!" Will definitely return!

“Eat like a local.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Okay, the atmosphere is 1950's bar like. The tables are formica, the kitchen is just the otherside of a wall. Its a little dark inside. BUT, the locals eat there. A Lot. On Fridays, they have a Prime Rib special. I've been there at 7pm and they were out. During Lent, its Perch. Again sold out. There must be something to it....I'm just saying.

There menu is bar food, but has some surprises on it. A chicken gyro that is really good. Fried Pita Chips for an appetizer. As every acknowledges, their burger is great.

And, my personal favorite is that they have KJ chardonnay, not some lesser kind. And...its 5 dollars a pour. I think this is a TERRIFIC value. Try it!

“BEST burgers around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I've been to the town club many, many times. THE best olive burger you ever had. Also the best BLT on pita bread you'll ever find. Gyros are good too! The wait staff probably are the best you'll find anywhere. Great BAR atmosphere!

“Great chicken sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Great CBS sandwich....chicken breast, bacon, swiss cheese...left the dill sauce off and added ketchup and it was fine...only think that would make it better is if they included fries with the sandwich, rather than chips!!!
