Temporary Closing

Rare Olde Times Family,

Planned upgrades to our facility will begin July 2nd. We will re-open in mid-August with some exciting updates to our home. For over Twenty-three years Rare Olde Times has been honored to welcome you to our location. Please excuse us for some downtime while we prepare for the next 23 years. Our focus will be on key infrastructure to continue providing you the experience you love. Improvements will include ADA compliance, vastly upgraded restroom facilities, electrical upgrades, and lighting just to name a few. We will not change our identity, atmosphere, or mission.

Thank you for making this place great! We look forward to seeing so many of you daily, weekly, or whenever you get a chance. When you walk back into Rare Olde Times we will welcome you with the same atmosphere and feel that has defined our restaurant all these years. These upgrades are intended to provide more comfort in our pub home. Please keep up to date with improvements by joining our email list or track our progress on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or just give us a call to say hello! Thank you for joining us on our journey and allowing us to be the best version of your Pub.
