Hot and cold bottles of Gekkeikan and Ozeki saki clink symphonically above slices of hot-fudge chocolate cake that provides a satisfying epilogue to the meal.

Olde Towne Tavern strives to serve as a second home for area residents, providing them with a place to relax and enjoy a drink, meal, and night out with friends. The menu of classic finger foods and comforting pub staples showcases the bounty of the nearby sea. Beer-battered fried clam strips, swordfish tacos with oven-roasted corn and red peppers, and a reimagined blackened-grouper reuben all fill the pages.

Pool tables, dart boards, and an Internet-connected jukebox are all available amid the wooden tables and stool-lined bar area. Eight high-definition televisions keep patrons caught up with the day's game, although the tavern turns eyes away from the televisions by hosting live rock, country, jazz, and acoustic bands on select nights during the week.
