Old Town Social keeps it simple: We're a sports bar, with awesome beer and really great food. Watch your favorite teams on one of our 23 TVs (including private booths with their own televisions), while digging into our award-winning house-made charcuterie and gourmet bar-style food along with craft beers and cocktails. It's all the essentials you need for a solid night out.

On football game days, we're all about Iowa (NCAA) and the New England Patriots (NFL).

Good fried chicken and waffles. Outstanding Bloody Marys. Solid beer and wine lists. Easy to get into for brunch.

Our server, Rachel, was really nice and attentive. The food was amazing and the bloody Mary bar was definitely a hit. We will be back!

I planned a farewell dinner for a friend at Old Town Social. We had 9 people but we were accommodated nicely. The drinks and food were all good. Staff was friendly and was able to split the bill between all nine of us. Loved the vibe of this place. would recommend!

We arrived for a res that took place immediately after a private event. The ambiance was obnoxiously loud, which you'd expect on a Friday only that it never leveled out. That and the shocker of a very limited late night menu after 930pm made it hard to enjoy the meal my friends and I had planned to have. The service was impeccable, I'd just wish that we were warned ahead of time about the limited menu and blaring music.

Great Sunday Brunch spot. Went on new years day for the pajama event. Had a great time and staff was great for being new years day, because I was hungover for sure.

Bustling bar, good for younger crowd. The food was good, we loved the appetizers. Our waitress was very inattentive and made an overall great place a little bit lacking.

The "Brisket Sandwich" was three burnt and tasteless strips of meat. No sauce. Dry toast. And half a pickle. All disassembled on the plate and I guess I was supposed to put it together? Why the hell would something be labeled a sandwich and then I have to become the sandwich maker? It was EXTREMELY (I can't stress this enough) EXTREMELY overpriced for how low of quality the it was. I will not be returning and will not be recommending it to anybody.
