This bar has good drinks, great food, and a fast-moving service staff. The place was packed when we stopped in, and still had drinks in a few minutes, and food shortly after that. Going to keep going back when in Madison.

We stopped in on a mid-afternoon Saturday. There were plenty of tables available but all were filthy. We found the least objectionable one and sat down. Waiters walked right by us without any acknowledgment of our presence. I get being busy but even something as...More

First time visiting when it wasn't for a Badgers football game. Decent food and decent prices. Good happy hour specials and amazing looking nachos on special too!

Popular place. Went for first time for lunch on a Monday. Had tap beers - nice & cold. Ordered one of their speciality chicken sandwiches on pretzel buns. Nothing special in taste/flavor department. Wanted to try once, won't be going back.

Really good. This is located in an area where there just aren't a lot of food options. I went at the end of lunch and the place went from packed to empty in minutes. Absolutely nothing here....this is a bar with tables. The staff was...More

Open floor plan with little décor, so very noisy. Seats are either hard stools or hard chairs and it’s not a relaxing atmosphere. Service was decent at best and we had to search for napkins and utensils ourselves. The chips & salsa appetizer boasted a...More
