good food, good folks – i have been going to uptown for about 10 years now. its that hole in the wall bar with great food and a good time. most of the food is exactly what you would be looking for in this type of place. good comfort food. my experience with ownership and the staff have been nothing but pleasant. the have also sponsored a couple of softball teams i have played on. i was prompted to write this review because i read another post and didn't feel like they got a fair shake. between the regular bands and the weekly drink specials i think its a great place to go and relax and put the days work behind you. if your new to town or are looking for a change of pace, uptown is a great option. they have been in business for over twenty years for a reason. Enjoy!!
Bad sportsmanship for a sports bar! – This bar is the same kind of "town" bar you'll find in any community across America. We have always stopped here on our bike run because it was always there, being the oldest bar in Plainfield....Until now! The last time we all were bar hopping, we were actually reprimand by the owners, Steve & Jason. We were told that we shouldn't go to any of the other bars on the street for this reason & that reason, & that we should be loyal to them. Exact quote, "if you're going to go there, stay there!". There are some really great places to go now in downtown Plainfield: The Lazy Lizard, Gunther's, Front Street Cantina, & best of all, Moe Joe's right next door to Gruban's. The competition must be getting to the "Uptown Tap". A bit of advise: You shouldn't tell the few loyal customers you have where they are ALLOWED to go & not go. You're paranoia & claws are showing. Maybe you should update your 1950's decor or throw a bucket of bleach in the nasty bathrooms (the main reason why I WOULD NEVER EAT your bar food).
