My daughter and I drove to IA from Chicago to pick up my granddaughter. By the time we checked into our hotel we were tired and hungry. The West Towne Pub was walking distance and had our side seating which was perfect. We both ordered...drinks, chicken sandwiches and fries. The food was good, but service was very slow.it appeared the wait staff was really working so I would have to assume it was the kitchen that was really slow. The other issue was that although there were signs requiring masks to enter none of the clientele wore masks a. The staff did wear them. It was a good meal.More

We rented the party room after a softball tournament and had a very nice experience. Our server was working very hard to keep us happy and did a great job. Food was typical bar food with a bit of an upscale kick and everyone seemed...very pleased with everything from apps to kids meals to entrees. Good selection of drinks and the bucket special was a hit. Very good experience!More

We stopped in here after shopping. I would have loved to sit on the large outdoor patio but it was about 100degrees and humid! Service was fast, it wasn’t really busy as we were there at an off time. My burger was good and my...husband’s steak sandwich was too. He also liked the gizzards.More

Great place to grab a drink and eats. Food was great and service was too. We are a late lunch and we’re made to feel very welcome.

Atmosphere was much nicer than Jethro's and thought that the boneless wings were better here. Both places had boneless wings that were actually small strips of chicken, just thought these were thicker, more moist and tastier. I had the salmon and steamed vegetables for a...main course and the salmon was done just right...I recommend it. Don't leave without sharing a piece of Chocolate Infusion dessert - layer upon layer of different types of chocolate that is SO good. Mousse and ganache look very light and whipped, but once you spoon into it, you realize just how rich and thick it is!More

When visiting our son, we usually call West Towne Pub for lunch. It is ready in 10-15 minutes and so delicious and very accomodating. Highly recommend.

We live in Ankeny, however, our adult children live in Ames and we eat here quite a bit! Their food is always excellent and they have great service!
