Perfect lunch stop - great food - clam chowder perfect consistency - fish is fresh - lobster rolls are rock solid (can get it warm with butter or cold with a touch of mayo). Tremendous burgers - hand packed with variety of toppings and sides!
Tv's a plenty but sound is down so very restaurant is very conversational.

Very friendly staff - bartenders engage with guests in a friendly banter way!

All in all - highly recommended stop in Madison!!!!

Brother Mike's is a long established local watering hole previously known as Lynch and Malone's, then Malone's for some time. New owner has taken it up a notch food wise to everyone's benefit. It's still a very busy bar, but the menu is really solid pub food served by friendly, efficient staff. It's great to have a place like this in town where simple items, well prepared at fair prices can be expected. A different handmade burger every day plus other good daily specials. Well done.

A nice change of pace place with an interesting setup and arrangement. Blended setup the merges bar area with seated area. Good entrees and sandwiches, sweet desserts and a nice bar menu. Not inexpensive but worth the buck.

Having been raised in Madison years ago - now coming back to visit aging parents - this is the best version of this long time restaurant / bar. Food is fantastic - prices reasonable for quality and quantity served . Seafood was fantastic (red snapper) - owners advertise fresh products and my meal reflected that. Bar is well stocked - Tv's plentiful - but not overpowering ! Staff works well as a team - hostess Sara was friendly and checked to ensure all was well.

I would recommend the spot for a solid meal in a relaxed environment! Good for families - good for girls nite out - good for guys nite out - food for a solo stop for a few drinks and dinner!

The outdoor area was not open due to rain - but I popped out to see it - fantastic set up!

A much needed addition to Madison and an upgrade over prior operation at this space!

Used to come here when it was Lynch and Malone's and then just Malone's--this was our first time here when it was Brother Mike's. This is a very good neighborhood bar and restaurant--friendly service, good food, We sat outside on a beautiful fall evening warmed by a great fire table. The fish sandwich and the salmon on a spinach and citrus salad were both very tasty and fresh. Pasta prima vera was good too. The wine selection is good. This is definitely a place worth coming back to.
