I met family members here at Fitchburg location. My niece and friend really enjoyed the beer. Both got burgers and those were excellent, the fries were topnotch. I ordered a Thai noodle bowl and while it was good, I thought it was a bit over priced for the size of the portion. My sister complained about the tiny glass of... More

The Great Dane is one of the Madison restaurants I tell anyone from out of town they have to try. Always good food, good atmosphere and good people.

While cheese curds may not be everyone's definition of quality cuisine, I had to sample the iconic Wisconsin appetizer. I liked the texture contrast of the deep fried breading with the creaminess of the cheddar cheese. The BBQ meatloaf was solid, but it could have had less barbecue sauce on it perhaps. The beers were decent, yet there wasn't a... More

First time at a Great Dane and this location is now our favorite restaurant in Madison. My sausage plate was definitely "old country" and I loved every bite.

Excellent service. Very prompt and plight. Helpful with what to order. Beer selection was great. Food was great. I don't come into this side of town often but definitely worth a stop.

Traveling solo on a business trip I had many options. They had a very good craft beer selection and very good food at reasonable prices.

The good has always been above average pub fare. The burgers are good, and the Mediterranean plate appetizer comes with babaganoush. Yummy. Their brewpub beer list is above average, and the service ranges from acceptable to good. Lots of TV's makes this a good, civilized place to watch a game.

What a delicious brunch. We did not realize they even had a brunch buffett! Prime rib, bacon, pancakes, the items on the buffett were endless. They were fresh and very tasty! That is THE Sunday brunch buffett!

Our granddaughter has severe food allergies, so the fact that this restaurant is allergy aware was a primary consideration in choosing it. But beyond that, we found the food to be quite good.

Ordered the pricier ($14) 1/2lb burger which if memory serves is a mix of prime rib and ground chuck. The meat must have been very fatty, because it shrunk down to a very small size. The bun dwarfed the patty. Flavor and toppings were good, but $14 was steep for what I got. Fries were fine as was the service.... More
