The first time I went to Looney's Pub in Canton, I liked its laid-back feel and worn-in decor. That was more than two years ago, when Looney's seemed to expend as much effort courting sit-down diners as it did drinkers. A lot has changed for the better at the Canton Square pub since then. Last year, the owners decided to shift their focus more to the drinkers and made some much-needed renovations. They removed one of the two pool tables upstairs, built a new bar on each floor, and brought in high-topped tables and chairs to one of the two downstairs dining rooms.
