Tired of cheese curds and brats? try the cheesy, cheesy grits and cajun shrimp with gravy. It was top notch!

We sat in the bar & the waitress was with us in minutes! She went over specials and had our drinks to us right away. I have eaten there many times and their food is always on point!

We visited twice for dinner during a recent stay in Madison. We chose outside seating both times in a really nice, secluded patio, with no wind or direct sun. The menu is great, filled with interesting choices both for food and drink. Solid choice!
