“Good bar fo”
Reviewed 20 January 2013 via mobile

We just had to check out a place with such a name. Good bar food served in a typical midwest bar setting. Bartender was very friendly and helpful. Loved the antique bar carvings and fixtures.

“Local "hole in the wall" with a few fabulous touches!”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

Dropped into the Nasty Habit mostly because the name caught my fancy and I wanted a bite of late lunch while on the road. Their menu is pretty much burgers with different toppings, but still a good, large burger for the money.

The Nasty Habit was empty except for the bar tender when we walked in, but it WAS after 2 PM on a weekday. Bonanza was on the tv, which after a bit was overpowered by music from the juke box when a couple of locals came in to sit at the long bar. We also chose to sit at the bar to better see the gorgeous back bar - carved wood with women and antique light fixtures - it was cool in the extreme.

The bartender/cook was friendly, answered our questions and was just attentive enough. Food was well cooked and tasty and good value for the money.

It had a a couple rooms off the main bar room - one for dancing, live music and such and another with pool tables, so big enough to handle larger local crowds on the weekends and at night.

Whenever traveling, I look for these little picturesque joints to eat in and to hang out at for a bit. If you are the same type of person, step into the Nasty Habit. Pick up a t-shirt if you wish to advertise your own Nasty Habit. They are fun.
