We ate outside and enjoyed watching people go by on State Street, while sampling great local beers and having simple burgers and brats. Classic pub atmosphere-- just the right combo for a casual family night. Friendly staff (you order at the bar). We hear that...More

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.

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

Went there on the recommendation of the hotel desk clerk, when I asked for a place to get brats. The brats were ok but the place was empty. Might be better when school is in session.

We enjoyed a brat and beer before walking around the UW campus and State Street. Lunch was not very busy but it can be standing room only depending upon the time and day of the week.

This is a fun place - full bar with a great beer selection, quick eats (bratwurst is the specialty, and the ever present cheese curds) and college atmosphere. There is also an outdoor seating area to people watch on State Street.
