We like the Tower, we usually end up there at least once or twice when we are visiting Manitowoc, but would someone PLEASE put some healthy and vegetarian options on the grill? or if asked about modifying something, to help them out? I completely understand this is "bar food" but having appetizers that aren't deep fried would be nice. Service... More

I'm new to the city of Manitowoc and am in a wheelchair , have been to Tower Tavern twice. First time the bar tender was just rude and not friendly. Thinking she may have been having a bad day we tried again. I parked my ramp van in the HC spot, transferred into my wheelchair just to find out the... More

Can't go wrong with the Tower! Great food, prices and service! Have never had a bad meal from burgers to the Friday fish fry.

We go to the Tower atleast once a week. Go on Monday & have the special. 1/2 lb burger on a Semel bun and it's awesome. Nothing fancy!

One of if not the best burger in town, certainly for the value it is tough to beat. Great place to hang out and watch a game, relax with some drinks, or eat. All of their food is top notch and the staff is friendly and fun.

Okay, for me This place had one of THE best burgers I have eaten in a long, long time. (Flamingo Café in PSL used to have burgers this good but they have long since cheapened and changed for the worst.) We all met here for an after work supper, recommended by one of our counterparts that lives in Manitowoc. The... More

Nice bar area and a side area with high top tables. Can eat at bar or high tops. The food was good and so was the soup it was delicious. Nice neighborhood type bar. Not very large just a nice size.

Upon walking in the door and finding a nice, clean, modern decor and lots of patrons on a Friday afternoon, I expected better food. The burger and brat sandwich (1/4 lb beef patty & 1/4 lb brat patty,) had no flavor other than of the grill--an almost metallic flavor. The servers / bartenders, too, were unimpressive. Sure, the place was... More

My husband and I love going to tower. Its a laid back atmosohere yet lots of friendly people. I love the exposed brick! Makes me feel like im in downtown Milwaukee. Food is very inexpensive and yummy if youre in the mood for bar type food. Great place to be relaxed in :)
