Good pub food and great atmosphere. I had the patty melt and the sweet potato fries and both were good.

This is my favorite place for Friday Fish Fry!!! It is so fresh, hot each time, perfect amount of seasoning. You have 3 choices of fish. I have not had a problem out of the many times I have been here. I have had regular...menu items as well which were good, but I specifically come here for the fish. They also have a huge selection of beers, more local and unique. They have the classics on tap/and bottle as well. It is usually pretty busy for weekends, which shows you they are doing well. I am looking forward to the next time I visit. It is now almost a tradition! They have outside seating as well which I have yet to try.More

Let me tell you one thing, Andy the manager and chefs at The Flying Hound are FANTASTIC! Food?!!!! Omg! So delicious, they take so much pride in preparing their dishes. A touch of Louisiana spices and when you bite into what you ordered you will...wonder why you have not searched this place out earlier! I have to say the wait staff are so friendly and always making sure you are taken care of. The rating of 5 is as high as we are allowed. But let me tell you this place and these people are 10 in my book! Try them out NOW!!!More

We were in town on a Tuesday doing some shopping and it was lunch time. Sales person in nearby Verizon store suggested here and said taco Tuesday is usually good. Well it wasn't. Based on other reviews we must of just hit a bad day....We did order tacos, we each had 3, one each of the different varieties. Could not eat the pork one because of so much fat and gristle. Chicken one did not have much taste. Beer was good! We will try here again but not for tacos!More

I love this place. This is a clean, wonderful restaurant with plenty of seating and a very friendly staff that makes you feel welcome. The menu is okay and the food took it's time coming out. The food tasted delicious. My salmon was cooked perfectly....The beer menu is huge and a lot of various choices. They even give you samples of whatever you want to try. So nice! The bar is stocked with high end whiskey and scotch, very impressive. What a wonderful place for lunch.More

and I’m so glad we did! Friday night, waited 15 minutes or so for our table. Bar atmosphere, great menu. Husband had grilled walleye and said it was excellent. I had an avocado BLT salad and added grilled chicken. I’m not lying when I say...it was one of the best salads I’ve had....fantastic! We were only in town doing some shopping and we are not from Fitchburg. SO glad to have received this recommendation. Will definitely eat at the Flying Hound again!More

European style pub atmosphere, with classic american rock as the soundtrack. The food is delicious and the beer is fresh. The staff are friendly and the establishment is clean. You will leave with a full belly. Our new favorite place in Fitchburg/SW Madison

We stopped here for a sandwich the other day. We ordered an open-face burger, grilled chicken sandwich and a reuben. The others enjoyed their sandwiches, but I was disappointed with the reuben. I have eaten a reuben sandwich at a dozen different restaurants and this...was not good. The pastrami was tough and rather chewy, mostly on a clump in the center of the sandwich. And on top of this, the sweet potato fries to accompany the sandwich were barely warm. I have previously been at the Flying Hound and found the food much better. I know they can do better.More

Beer list is impressive, food was good. Service not so much. Couldn’t tell if this was a “local” place where the staff catered to their regulars, because they seemed to know a lot of people by name. But they were very inattentive, screwed up my...order and didn’t offer to fix it. But overall I had a good dinner on a Friday night while in town for business, and would probably go back.More
