A good place to go after shopping or for a quick lunch. Mostly bar food but has some good specials from time to time. One of my choices is the italian meatloaf. Also has good homemade soups.

We stopped in to the Down Under for the first time for dinner with friends. This was one of their favorite spots and now we know why. The menu offers a wide variety of soups, salads, sandwiches and dinner entrees including several off the menu specialties, all with reasonable prices. They also offer a limited but satisfactory beer and wine... More

We stopped for dinner at The Down Under, and it's been years since I've eaten there. This is a great place for comfort food and a good atmosphere, but it's hard to remember. Clearly TDU is typically populated by regulars, as the majority of the diners stared at the unknowns when we walked in. But the wait staff was well... More

We eat here quite often, usually for lunch. It has an Australian theme, although the owner is American. Mostly pub food. We were here on St. Patrick's Day-had corn beef & cabbage.

4 of us visited Down Under for the first time, on a busy Saturday evening. We had made a reservation, and were seated immediately. There was a somewhat small but interesting selection of wines. The menu does not reflect the name of the restaurant, with only a few Australian mentions. It is not a big menu, but most people should... More

This is upscale bar food! The lemon pepper wings are fantastic. We have never had anything we did not like. They make their own soups and they are great especially the stuffed pepper soup. They have nightly specials. The place is clean and the staff are great.

Dont let the drab store front fool you. The food is usually good. Tradional bar food with a step up on the dinner side of the place. Good wings, burgers, salads and a full compliment of real dinner specicals. Needs an update on decor but food is really good!

I went here with my daughter for a nice meal. As usual the quality and value of the food was exceeded only by the service. They continue to serve up great food at fair prices with exceptional service year after year. It is definitely a jewel worth sampling.

I love the place, but went back for just the third time because it is so well hidden. The food is great. I have never been disappointed. Go there and see for yourself.
