    Super cute atmosphere (the lighting is so nice!) and even better food. I highly recommend trying one of the many unique combinations that they offer for their pizza. We tried the Ed and the Nadene and they were delicious! Highly recommend this spot. Food was good, drinks were good, and our server was absolutely excellent. Not a single complaint other than I wish it was closer to my house in the suburbs! ;)

    Great food. Try the goat sticks and the Nadine pizza. Had group of 10. Too loud to visit with everyone from the group but it was fun. Not an ideal place if you want to sit down and be able to have conversations as a group.

    The food we really good, we got a few pizzas and a Cesar salad. However, they initially got our order wrong. I am allergic to nuts and the pizza they brought out had pesto on it, even though the menu did not say this. I had to ask before I ate it, and they ended up taking it back and having to make a new one correctly without the pesto. Then, we ordered beers and about halfway through them the waitress comes over with 2 new beers and says, “sorry, the beers you are drinking are actually wrong. Here’s the beer you asked for”. Again, the food was good but the service was not. And it was very $$ for pizza and beer. $120 for 3 pizzas, a salad, and 2 beers.

    Great food and atmosphere. Just kind of annoying that they had no printed menus so we had to use a QR code with our phones… nothing worse than having your phone out when at dinner with friends.

    Host ( 1lady) in the camper by the door (is not good with people). Made a reservation for the camper seating online but was seated at a regular table( sitting in the camper was the main reason for coming) waitstaff was amazing, food was amazing! Only issue was the female hosts in the camper upon entering and the reservation not being met! Customer service is key! Energy is powerful and if your having a bad day stay home!

    If you’re looking for a great group outing bar to go out too, I would definitely recommend Old Town Happy Camper ☺️ The music was Top 40, so the vibe was great, and the food was great. We ate a meat lovers pizza, chicken pizza, elote dip 🔥 chicken tenders and jalapeño poppers. Everything was 🔥 Me and my guest were highly satisfied with the service, and I can’t remember our waitress name, but she was also awesome. I would definitely return with my party of 8 for another night on the town. Thanks again Happy Camper Old Town 🤞🏾

    The staff there is very unprofessional and did not honor my reservation time. I was told that we were next in line to be seated for a table, and several times they sat people after my reservation. I waited almost an hour to be seated.

    Did not enjoy myself. Server was very dry and monotone almost as if she was high. And the bus boys were rude and kept reaching over Food taking plates without asking, one actually took my plate and my cousins plate while we were still I’m the middle of eating then when we told him we were not done with it he said “oh” and proceeded to walk off. Going forward whenever a bus boy came over I would put my Arm across the table and say “No” so they would not rush off with our food! Drinks also were not good “big Lemonade” was watered down. I won’t be returning.
