What's not to like? There's a nice outside eating area and the draft beer is well kept. Good food, better than normal pub food. Friendly attentive staff, parking right outside and pool tables and music inside - great spot in Anderson, seems very well operated...More

Small bar with great food. More than just your regular bar food. Burgers are great with great quality meat. Love this place and the staff.

Many may see just a hole in the wall bar but inside the atmosphere is very laid back and the food is quite good. Always cold beer on tap and damn good wings. Also servers are great. Highly recommend

The salad was off the chain. It was fantistic. The salad had grilled chicken and fetta cheese with granny smith apples.

We have gone here a few time and the food was always good. We no longer go there because they allow smoking and it's hard to enjoy your meal when you can't breathe.More

One of the VERY few downtown places left for a smoker to have a cigarette with a drink and a burger without being chased out.

Fried mushrooms had no flavor. They were so greasy. We ordered burgers $8.00 each. They were small and dry. I expected more for the price. It was a waste of $ 26 dollars.More

Oh no. We are so sorry to hear that. This is not the norm for our restaurant. Our burgers are always big and juicy, we use local meat which is fresh and never frozen. Not really sure what went wrong with your visit but we...More

Good drinks and good pub food. Good place to meet friends after work for a drink and if you want a quick burger it is good.

The burgers are the best. The beer selection is good, with all the usual basic domestic along with a few micros. The menu also has some tasty options in addition to the burgers. The only problem is the smoke that makes it difficult to breathe....More

The Uptown Lounge has served Anderson for over forty years and is known for their delicious burgers, made famous by the original owner, Larry Stanley. Sarah and Shane Dowler, owners since 2008, still use the same recipe for the burgers and have a menu featuring many original burgers of their own and a variety of other items to please any palate. Seven tvs show all your favorite teams, and the Sunday ticket means you wont miss a game. Buzztime trivia is free to play and the calendar is full of specials and events so check it out...See you soon at the lounge.
