Food was good. The play we saw was interesting and well acted. I recommend this for people looking for an evening of something different.

The Bard's Town is a joy. It hosts performances all the time -- from plays to comedy, to jazz, to karaoke and improv. There is always something to see in the theater upstairs or lounge downstairs. The drinks are inexpensive -- from $2 for a...More

We went for the improv show, which was awesome and loved the food. The gooey butter cake was delicious. The Reuben was fantastic.

Really enjoyed my time here. Enjoyed several good local beers on tap. Nice bartenders and locals filled the place. They also have an event room where things were going on. Seems like they use it for various shows and group meetings. Cool place.

We randomly found the restaurant off google. We are from Wisconsin and am not familiar with the area. Figured we would give it a try. Very good service, very quick to get food out, amazing homemade dressings, and cool environment
