“Prototypical Wisconsin bar & lounge”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

The Olde Towne is a great place to get a drink. It's quiet and laid-back, and it's also a throw back to the earlier dock-side bar times (the decor reflects this). They have a small bar area and a couple of dining areas. Their specialties are the fish fry on Fridays, and the prime rib, both of which are excellent. For the price, you really can't do much better.

“Fish fry at a bar don't expect much food was decent”
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Wanted a wisconsin fish fry which is hard to find in minnesota. Fish was good but a little overdone. All you can eat 9 dollars. Clam chowder soup was very good. Brandy old fashioned not bad. Service was extremely slow. Fighting over heard in the kitchen.

I would try barkers next time just up the road

“I used to love it here.”
Reviewed January 22, 2011

The waitress took about 10 minutes to serve us and nearly that time to take our orders. I ordered the prime rib, medium well. It wasn't even medium when I received it. The outer sides were okay but the middle was not even cooked. I lost my appetite after that. Don't order the prime rib because they don't know how to cook it.

Do not let the exterior sway your opinion. When in Superior you have to eat here. The prime rib and veggie appetizer tray is awesome. Prices are fair and portions are more than enough. Highly recommended!

“Great value!”
Reviewed August 1, 2009

While we were in town on vacation, my husband spotted an ad for their Sunday specials so we went in for dinner. If you need a fancy atmosphere, this ain't it. This is a classic small town bar, with a side dining room. We had the complete turkey dinner -- both light and dark meat from a turkey roasted right there, good bread dressing, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans. Also included dinner rolls, some sliced beets and cranberry sauce. Plus you had your choice of soup or salad to start. This was a lot of food, all tasty "home cooked"-style and an unbelievable value for $9.
