Rude bartenders. Period. Poor service. Better places around the corner or down the street where they appreciate your business. Insulted my vet buddy.

Whiskey Jack Saloon is a large bar that has terrific drink specials, a large beer list and the best shot (shooter) menu in Madison. A fun bar especially on game day.

One of the better State Street bars in a nostalgic location. Larger space, game tables, LARGE shot menu, small band stage, clean bathrooms. We were there on a very busy Homecoming Friday afternoon - they were definitely understaffed, but Steve at the bar remained friendly...More

I like Whiskey Jacks bar. It is true that I do not like the people who are always loitering around the place, but the place is good inside. Basically, if you like crowdedness, Thursday, Friday and Saturday should be your days. However, you might end...More

Drinks a bit exepensive for a college town but other than that it was a fun crowd, big dance floor and a great band.
