We went after Wisconsin crushed Iowa at Camp Randall. Lively atmosphere. Some of us had mixed specialty drinks, others the local brew-all very tasty. The Prime Rib was one of the specialties. Very grizzly, main reason for only 4 stars. I had the Brat, Beef,...More

Got a great table viewing the sunset. The hostess didn’t crack a smile. Seemed annoyed we even came in. Then, we had a great server & an excellent meal. Would recommend- just need to get past the front girls.

We've been fans of all the Madison based Great Danes for years. Excellent food no matter what you get. I am partial to the fish fry, which is a Wisconsin tradition.

We love the Great Danes. I'm not sure we have ever had a bad meal downtown, at Hilldale or Hatchery Hill. Our lunch at the Jupiter location was disappointing. The chicken quesadillas were not ample and the black beans were cold. Not sure why there...More
