This review is based solely on one, three-person, lunch. Two of us had the burger(I believe a chuck, brisket, short rib blend) that is coffee rubbed with frizzled onions and melted smoked grayer cheese. The third had the pulled pork with cole slaw. The burger...was simply the best I have ever eaten, and I am 74. The other burger person agreed. My wife loved the pulled pork sandwich with Cole slaw. Simply great pub food on a single visit. Rough but nice outdoor dining area. Service was a tad slow, but we were in no hurry.More

We were able to enjoy another Father's Day at Old Town Pub as restaurants were cleared for outdoor dining during the pandemic. It was a perfect day for outdoor dining and Old Town did not disappoint! We had a table right on the corner with...a perfect view. Our server advised us that the menu was online via your phone. We started off with drinks- Blackberry Whiskey Lemonade which I would order again, Farnsworth Mule and a Root Beer which was brewed on premises and delightful. We also ordered the Quesadillas as an appetizer and it was phenomenal. Main course was BBQ Pulled Pork, Shrimp Tacos and House Made Chicken and Waffles. The BBQ Pork was done perfectly and was also a very generous portion coming with pickles and fries. I sampled the Shrimp Taco and it was very, very good. Daughter said the Chicken Waffles were good. We did not order dessert. I cannot say enough about our waiter. He was constantly checking on us and we felt for him as wearing a mask all afternoon in the warm weather. I cannot honestly say anything negative about our afternoon here and this being our second visit here, the only difference was dining outside and the drink menu was limited due to the pandemic I believe. I strongly suggest reservations for the outdoor dining as we noticed a few people just showed up but were not able to dine due to the limited seating.More

Thoroughly enjoyed the ambience. Dark cozy clean well-decorated place in a small town off the beaten path. Bartenders friendly. Food clean and good. Price is right. Drinks are very reasonable during "happy hour" (up until 6pm?). The mussels in red sauce needed more flavor: cooking...wine, basil, garlic, oregano . . . ? The nachos were okay, nothing really special. But the flavor of their chili is out of this world ! Looking forward to returning: heard that their burger with short rib is really good ?More

Went to Old Town last night with some friends. Our server was in training, but she was very friendly and attentive. I had the 4 Alarm Chili for appetizer. It was pretty good with decent heat, but a bit heavy on the chili powder. The...powder taste dominated it (It's the best way I can describe it, if that makes). All 4 of us had burgers. I had the Mega Man Burger. It was cooked perfectly and it was a nice sized burger. The only negative is that it was supposed to have fried jalapeno peppers, but I didn't taste any of them on the burger. The rest of the people really enjoyed their burgers as well. This is our third time here and we would probably go back again.More

After walking in to the partial owner - Trish drinking wine out of a brown paper bag at the Hostess station and telling my GF and I to "wait" without even saying hello I figured this would not be a good experience. I had higher...expectations but none were met. The bar was crowded and had pink strobe lights spotting the room with a quiet female singing elevator music - ambience didn't match the room. Service was slow and poor, once our food came out waitress disappeared. We ordered a chicken entrée with potatoes and veggies. The entire plate tasted like a salt shaker. My order of shrimp tacos tasted fine however I was left wondering where the shrimp was as the extra dousing of lettuce and veggies on top covers up the 1/4 oz of shrimp per taco. Poor food quality. Drinks were outrageously priced. My GF ordered 2 extremely weak captain morgan and cokes which totaled $27.00. $13.50 for a standard rum and coke? For 13.50$/drink I would expect a belvedere martini. It is clear this establishment does not know how to properly pour drinks let alone price them. Would not return Here...More

I have been to the OTT before and just had soup, salad and a drink which were all just fine. I took my friend there for his birthday. The first thing that was very apparent was the waiter wreaked of BO. This, in itself, was...a total turnoff. Both my friend and I were taken aback. My friend ordered scallops, I ordered salmon. Both were cooked to perfection and looked delicious. Both tasted as if someone took an entire container of salt and poured it on the dishes, ruining the meals. It was barely edible, but we continued to eat thinking maybe it was just one area of the food. I couldnt finish my salty salmon. I told the waiter, who by this time was sweating more as his BO was very pungent. He did tell the chef. The chef came out and my friend and I said the food was good, but he went overboard with the seasoning. The Chef said he only used Old Bay, did he use the entire can up? This has salt in it and only a tiny bit is used. Its a shame because I really wanted my friend to have a memorable dinner. He did, for all the wrong reasons. The chef needs to at least sample what is going out to the floor. Hours later I still feel like I consumed a shaker of salt. The owner did come over, apologized and did give us each desserts on the house. He listened to our concerns. Other reviews indicate the saltiness has been a problem. If the chef is overdoing with the spices, dont use anything with lots of salt. Put salt and pepper on the tables, there were none, and let the customer season their own food to taste. We went here rather than Tuscanos. Very disappointed. $50 for barely edible food. I will not eat a meal here again, maybe a drink and nachos.More

My husband and I had dinner here and it was excellent! We had a flatbread app (which was probably the weakest menu item we had but still good, loaded with toppings), he had a steak which was fabulous, and I had a bbq bacon burger...which was sooooo good. We also had onion rings and French fries, alone worth the 40 min drive for us. Our server was very attentive and the hostess had our table ready for us, respecting our reservation on a day when they had a party taking up their whole upstairs and Bordentown had a big festival. Thank you for a great experience, we’ll be back!More

A great sports bar to watch the games and have a good, quality dinner. The service was great, the menu was fabulous- reasonably priced.

Was at the festival. There were many food vendors on the street. We decided on a sit down meal. This place was the Farnsworth inn. Good food but service was slow however friendly and courteous.

My Daughters and I were trying to plan a 60th birthday party for my wife. Only expecting 55-65 people most venues were very expensive for a Friday or Saturday early evening cocktail party. One day I was having drinks with a friend at one of...our favorite bar/restaurants Old Town when the owner (Mike) came over and joined us. Hearing the conversation he asked why we would not let him host the party on the second floor. Cassie was assigned to assist and from that point on everything was seamless. Mike suggested the menu of appetizers (spot on). We had the party on a Saturday from 5pm-8pm . Oscar and Cassie tended bar and were very attentive and professional. Mike constantly checked in to see if we needed anything else. A plus plus for food service atmosphere and price. I highly recommend Old Town Pub for dinner, drinks or special events.More
