Located at 50 Front St. in Worcester, the new Overtime Tap Fantasy Bar and Grille may sound like “just” another sports bar, but owners Dave LeDoux, Matt Bousquet, and Greg Takacs run more than your typical beer-and-peanuts sports lounge.
Head chef Ian Hickey designed a menu well beyond typical bar-food fare; while staples like burgers, wings, and best-selling nachos are popular, the menu also offers lobster, lamb, steak, and shrimp, as well as veggie-friendly selections like eggplant lasagna, veggie burgers, and macaroni and cheese. With most sandwiches and generous appetizers rounding out between $6 and $8, Overtime offers a quick, affordable lunch or dinner before a show at the nearby Hanover Theatre or DCU Center. For a more robust meal, try the Heartier Fare and Pasta selections ~ they range from $12 to $25. Overtime also boasts more than two dozen beers both bottled and on tap, a large selection of wine, and a full bar.
Overtime opens at 11:00 am Mon.-Sat. and at noon on Sunday. The kitchen closes at 10pm on Fri. and Sat. and 9pm on all other days; the bar remains open until 11pm or later. Wing specials run every Wed. night starting at 5, and there’s a DJ on Fridays, Saturdays (and select Weds and Thurs). Call 508-757-0600 or visit overtimetap.com for information on express lunches, private parties, reservations, and on and off-site catering.
