In addition to the unforgettable food and drinks, Olde Boston's offers a game room with pool, darts, foosball and shuffleboard. Open during business hours Monday through Saturday, the game room is a fun way to relax and enjoy playing a favorite game or to learn some new skills. Olde Boston's Restaurant and Pub also provides food and beverage service to those who stop in next door at Golf Central and Hanson's Custom Golf. Has your golf swing begun to atrophy from the long winter? Are you longing to get out and hit the greens again? Golf Central's simulators lets patrons work on their technique and get a jump on the upcoming golf season. They also offer a fitting center and can service golf clubs so that everything will be in top shape when the courses open.

Olde Boston is available for special events. Coming in April and May will be their expanded Sunday Brunch for Easter and Mother's Day festivities. With serving set up in the foyer, the buffet is double its normal Sunday size. The game room, the upstairs seating area and Golf Central areas may each be booked for parties. The game room accommodates 30 for a sit-down meal or 75 for cocktails. Upstairs, Olde Boston can seat 60 with the ability to seat 100 in Golf Central at certain times.

"We're very pleased with our decision to remain downtown," said Michael Payne, manager of Olde Boston's Restaurant and Pub. "It's exciting to see the development and new businesses coming back to and thriving in the downtown area. The crosstown connector is really invigorating the area."

Another big draw to the downtown area is the annual Market on Central, which Payne is the chairperson of this year. "We already have 38 anchor vendors who have committed to being downtown each week during Market on Central. That's more businesses signed on than ever before for this time of year. I expect we'll have several more anchor vendors before the season opens." Payne added that Olde Boston's is busy working on its own menu offerings for Market on Central. Market-goers can find Olde Boston set up right outside their front door. "We're still working on a new niche item that will keep people coming back," said Payne. Fort Dodge's Market on Central has been nationally recognized as #76 on the Top 101 Farmer's Markets in the United States.

The kitchen at Olde Boston's Restaurant and Pub is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday; 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday; and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday. The bar is open later.
