Didn't realize this was in Middleton until we found it on Trip Advisor. Stopped for lunch. Nice beer selection. All 3 of us had burgers and we all liked them. Will definitely stop back again.

The whiskey selection is awesome. Great top beers as well. Good pub food. Cozy and homelike environment. Plenty of TVs for watching sports.

This is such a cute place! We sat outside on a great fall day and had the best service. Our young waitress was so attentive and knowledgeable! You have to try the blackberry margarita! The food was really good too. Our favorite new spot!

Stopped in on a Saturday, early evening after visiting Capital Brewery and the Mustard Museum. There was outdoor seating, so we opted to enjoy the fall weather. The craft beer choices were overwhelming, but our server was kind enough to give suggestions, and even a few samples. Once we settled on our beer choices, we ordered a few appetizers. We... More

Went here with my sister and had a great time! Service was great and very friendly. I had the fish tacos and she had the prime rib sandwich and both were excellent! We also each had pomegranate mules which were great too. Would definitely go back again.

I've eaten here twice and enjoyed both times. The whiskey list is extensive and prices reasonable. Craft beer list is nice too. My service at the bar was great. Food was decent - Black and Blue burger was delicious but the Walleye P'boy was average.

We made our third trip here over Labor Day weekend. As usual, the food and beer were great and we got right in without a wait.

This place was amazing! The food was not only delicious, but they were very friendly and accommodating to our three small children. Kids menu was small, but they had everything our kids eat - chicken tenders, hamburger, and grilled cheese. Don't pass up the pretzel appetizer, it was fantastic! Chips, salsa and guacamole were also a hit, but beware, the... More

Great outdoor space for early fall. Service is prompt. The salads are plentiful and gluten free options are much appreciated.
