Nice restaurant with your normal bar/restaurant fare. Can get busy on weekends and service a bit slow at times.

Large circular bar, obviously popular with the local crowd, and with all the noise that goes with it. If you want "quieter"---relatively, that is---try to get a table as far from the bar as possible. The food is quite good. We shared wings (buffalo) which are just hot enough. My California Chicken Club was oversized and very good. My wife... More

I came here with my parents, boyfriend and his parents for a celebratory lunch and the food was so good!! I've already been here once before and had one of their burgers. This time I had an omelet off of their brunch menu with their apple sangria and it was so good! It's very nicely decorated, a cozy feel yet... More

Average. Nothing terrible. Nothing great. And not a great beer selection either. The best thing about the place is that it's very roomy. Big comfy booths and a decent bat atmosphere

Our party of 8 started at opposite ends of the culinary scale, with nachos and a hummus plate. The nachos were great, that is not saying the hummus plate was bad, but hummus and pita bread will always pale when placed against a steaming hot pile of corn chips, melted cheese, chili, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. The dinners were... More

Have been here many times for dinner and lunch and solid meals. After attending a local attraction with 13 friends on a Sunday morning, we showed up at 11:45am with no reservation. We were seated asap and all enjoyed lunch and brunch selections. They make an outstanding Egg Florentine, Croque Madam, Huevos Ranchers - not to mention the HUGE bloody... More

We ate here for the first time today. We had lunch before seeing a movie and it was one of the few places open at 11:30 am on a Sunday. (Who knew that a good portion of Madison closes on Sunday?) The food was very good.y daughter ordered the nacho plate and was warned that it was big. They were... More

We gave the bartenders specific instructions and they followed them to a T. Delicious drinks, great sports on plentiful TVs, and fun crowd.

Great sandwiches..., attentive staff..., several rather small TVs showing different live sports. A good choice to hotel food.

Been there a few times - with friends for a few drinks: Despite the other reviews, this is a bar. But not a fun bar - there were a bunch of old people (and I'm in my 50's so old is pretty old), with 1 table of guys about 30. - for dinner: to dark, too much of a bar,... More
