Small town bar with top quality service and food

For a small town bar with a small grill kitchen, they put out some good eats. The burgers are fresh patties made to order, not frozen. The prices are reasonable, the food is good, and the service is top knotch. We don't visit often, but on our most recent friends from Jackson, MI accompanied us... read more

If I am hungry for an olive burger and fries or onion rings, I may stop in. My partner likes the gyro. It's dark inside- typical bar atmosphere with seating.

When we came in, we were the only people and within an hour, it was pretty full. The bartender, Alexis was very friendly and poured a good drink. The place... More

The town club has good food and good service. Fun to be in it has a pool table and a couple of other games. I would overall recommend it.

Good town bar in Elk Rapids. Pool tables, video bowling. Good juke box. Lots of locals. Food is total bar food, but it's good. Lots of fried options. The pita dishes are good.

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.

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.
