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.

Ah, I totally agree with you and I'm the owner!! We have a whole clientele of customers who only come during the months when they can enjoy our awesome food on our outdoor patio. Hopefully we will see you back when it warms up. The start of lunch is usually ok too and we do offer take out. Thanks for... 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.

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 sincerely apologize and hope you will consider trying us again. 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. The is is not a nonsmoking restaurant. And, the smell of the smoke is horrible.... More

Very good food at a reasonable price. We discovered this restaurant as we were leaving the Anderson Library one day. We both enjoyed our dish and the service and prices were very good

After walking around Anderson and seeing all the overpriced elitist restaurants and college cafes I found this gem. Yes, smoking is allowed inside. However, the staff and the patrons are friendly. Food was great and priced reasonably. I am glad I ate here instead of some uppity place downtown.

Waited over 40 minutes for burgers and wings. We went last evening to grab a quick snack and go back to the music at the Anderson Block Party and waited so long we were leaving when the food arrived. Will never go back.

I'm very sorry you had a bad experience at my establishment. We paid for your entire meal and drinks to apologize for your 40 minute wait. I'm sorry you feel like you needed to leave us a bad review after we tried to do the right thing when we accepted responsibility for making you wait longer than normal for your... 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.
