This is an iconic Wisconsin bar, so if you're looking for bar food and a spot to watch a Badger game, this place is for you. The food is pretty standard pub fare, nothing too memorable. It's wildly popular in the evenings, especially Thurs-Sat.

We spent a few hours here having a few beers and sitting outside. That part was nice. The Milwaukee burger was really good, but the side of onion rings only included 4. The servings were ridiculously small for the sides. The staff was very pleasant.

Stopped in for lunch while taking a quick tour of the U of W campus with our son. We had the $5 brat special, which included fries. The brat was delicious and the price was more than reasonable. Our server was super-friendly and helpful. We...More

Went for drinks when in downtown Madison. Usual college bar atmosphere. Always eclectic. A part of Madison culture but don't have high expectations.
