The Old Town Pub, formerly the Farnsworth House, underwent extensive renovations during the summer of 2017. We now have a new bar with a 30-tap beer and wine system, a completely re-imagined menu, and a full dining room upstairs with it's own large bar, featuring a 20-tap system.

We feature upscale pub fare with almost all dishes made from scratch in-house.

We offer a large outdoor seating area as well.

Nice spot, good food and great service. Only downside was burger was undercooked but tasty. They forgot to add one of the extra toppings but credited me and I was charged for one extra drink but I caught it and they fixed it.

Water glass was very dirty, had to ask for a clean one. Food was good, but potato chip appetizer was not very warm and cheese underneath was not melted. Server was new so the service should improve as he gets experience.

Made a reservation and when we got there we were seated outside. It was incredibly hot and when the sun sets you are literally baking outside. Maybe they need some shades for sunset.

My wife wanted Oysters, we usually get them from Washington crossing Inn but now this is going to be our go to for Oysters and probably anything from the seafood bar. Service was very friendly and helpful. We will be back.

I've visited twice. The first time I sat at the bar downstairs and the second, I made reservations for the speakeasy night upstairs. Drinks and service here are top notch. The food is pretty good and well seasoned. The speakeasy night threw me for a loop tho. The room was extremely dark to the point I tipped over my drink. The music was way too loud. Everyone was shouting. And the price for what you get is absurd. I paid over $20 for a single crab cake. We ended up getting second entrees but by then the irritation with the general ambiance (read:loud and dark)and lack of clarity that we were ordering small plates that were being served as entrees... Tread carefully here and ask lots of questions when you order. The servers are very friendly and willing to fill in the blanks if you ask.

Took a long time to have my order taken. The food runner at first brought my order to a table of 4. A single appetizer… why wouldn’t you first bring to the one table with a single diner? Crab cake tasted fine, but came with a teeny salad and not the promised Asian slaw. Overpriced and sloppy presentation. Unsweetened iced tea tasted burnt. Took a long time to get the check. Never again.

It’s a hidden gem. Wish I would’ve known about it when I first moved here. There’s so much on the menu I like I need to come back quite a few times to try everything I want.

Always enjoyable experience. Food and service doesn't disappoint. Always adding new things to the menu. Now offering gourmet pizza. Had the Farnsworth last night, Buffalo chicken. Vgood. My daughter LOVED the Shrimp Risotto. Chicken parm was delicious . Burgers always a good choice.

Okay food / poor customer service.

Everything was good until we got the bill and realized they charged us for an extra syrup. We ordered the chicken and waffles entree which comes with a half filled cup of syrup, covering about 1/4 of the waffle which is ridiculous. Therefore, we asked for another syrup, the waitress did not say it would be an extra charge, and it was also half filled. This will keep us from rushing back.

Went on the recommendation of Tindall Road Brewery (right across the street). They said if you want a good burger the go to Old Town Pub. Well they were correct. Really good burger cooked to order. Also the pulled pork nachos were delicious and a huge portion. To much for one. Service was good and the beers were cold

I went here a few weeks ago with a friend. This place was great. The service was excellent and the food was good. My only complaint would be the bbq pulled pork sandwich was a bit dry, but it’s perfect with a little extra sauce. Would definitely come back!

Food is definitely upscale and inventive. The service is extremely friendly and helpful. Their knowledge of the menu is really tops. The owner is usually always there making sure things go well for each customer and is very hands on and engaging with all his customers. This place is a must try for everyone.

Our outside table was located outside, next to the door where there was a speaker playing music. My 101-year-old father has hearing issues and with the loud music, he knew he would not be able to follow the conversations. We asked our server, Gianna if it could be turned down. She hustled around to find the manager to figure out how to turn it down, got it turned down and it made our visit much more pleasurable. Thanks to Gianna.

We made reservations on Open Table a week in advance.
When we got there we were seated at the table right by the door and hostess station. We asked if we could move further back or upstairs and they indicated there were no other tables.
Food was good, we will go back.
