It was my daughter's birthday weekend, and this mom needed to take a road trip to celebrate with her. After some shopping, we decided to try the Cowtown Saloon aka The Livery for lunch. It was a great decision and a delicious lunch. We started with onion rings with chipotle sauce and chips, salsa and guacamole. They were fantastic. Since... More

Our family of 4 ate dinner here during a recent visit. Dined upstairs, nice views and great spaces with a "cowboy feel/look" like a saloon. Good appetizers, nice beer lists on tap includes several craft brews. Menu had a variety of dinners and sandwiches. Food was prepared well-meals were great but my pasta dish could have been a served warmer,... More

Eau Claire is on the rise and it's because of places like this. Busy, but only a 20 min wait; an interesting menu, but not too experimental; a full bar with a solid beer selection, but not over the top. A must try is the curried poutine. We will return!

We were in town for UWEC Homecoming. Everyone recommended The Livery from friends to the alumni director at UWEC. Two friends joined me. Cassie was wonderful, rolling with the punches when I kept changing the reservation I had. She even greeted me when I walked in! Across the board awesome. We were seated at the "bowling pin table" which was... More

We enjoyed dinner here last Saturday as a large group. They seated us upstairs in a beautiful room that was so quiet and perfect for our group. The menu was diverse and offered something for everyone at affordable prices.

Stopped in for lunch. Cleverly decorated pub/restaurant. Lots of appetizer choices as well as many sandwich choices. Great choices of draft beer. Excellent service. Good food and atmosphere!

We have eaten here a few times, either with friends or as a couple. Every time has been a great experience. The food is good and the atmosphere is great for a bar/grill. It's rather noisy if you wanted to have an evening of good conversation over dinner, but it's a bar, so it's expected. I love the revitalization of... More

We try to visit this Restraunt at least once a month. We like to go on off hours, as it fills up fast and tends to be noisy. They have a variety of food on their menu, some unusual. all very good. They have an outside fire and sitting area, but smokers are allowed so it makes for a limited... More

The Livery has really good upscale comfort food- the blue cheese steak is one of the best things I've had- comes with a lovely tarragon butter sauce that I really love! I've been to the Livery maybe 10 times had have to say, though, the service is usually pretty bad. The male servers are always so nice to me, but... More

My wife and I were attending a family wedding in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, and were looking for an ATM machine. Right behind the ATM machine, we discovered THE LIVERY & COWTOWN SALOON. We were hungry, so we entered the old-style brick-walled wood-lined pub, and discovered an extremely modern menu. The selections included a wide range of appetizers, burgers, sandwiches, salads,...
