There is so many sports memorabilia to look at you might not have time to eat. Other than the waitress getting my order incorrect, it was good. I really enjoyed the Philly steak sandwich.

Rookies Food & Spirits is the perfect place for the whole family. In addition to the bar and dining areas, Rookies features an authentic Wiffle ball field with an attached clubhouse that’s fantastic for birthdays, reunions, graduation parties, and other events. If you’re a sports fan, you won’t find a better place to watch all the games, local and national. We’re stocked with 29 TV screens; there’s not a bad seat in the house. Over 6,000 baseball cards cover the walls of the men’s room, and autographed memorabilia covers nearly every other square inch of the restaurant and bar, floor to ceiling. Owner Steve Schmitt, also owner of The Shoe Box and the Madison Mallards baseball team, has filled Rookies with his passion for sports in the form of the best collection of sports memorabilia this side of Cooperstown. Much of the memorabilia was donated and autographed by Steve’s personal friends. You won’t believe the collection until you see it. Whether you’re a sports fan, passionate about top-quality down-home American cooking, or just in the mood to have a drink with the friendliest staff in Wisconsin, Rookies has what you’re looking for. Stop by the best sports shrine in the area for a hot meal and a cold beer.
