My favorite is a grilled chicken sandwich, but it's all good. Lots of local events. A bit pricey but I guess in Madison it's priced okay.

Came here for lunch a couple times, and got the Juicy Moosey burger...just fantastic. I've had a couple others as well, and have also had the Friday fish fry. All been very good. If you like traditional bar food, you'll love Club Tavern.

Took my wife's 89 year old mother for brunch on Mother's Day. Three of us had Bloody Mary's which had tons of garnish and were a little steep at $10.99 each. Two of us ordered the buffet which included salad bar, Meat and omelet bar, and dessert bar. Decent, but the meats were very salty. 3 of us ordered from... More

Ok, this us a former stagecoach way station and the old stables are the restaurant and bar. It is not high class nor is it 5 star, but it does have good food and drink at affordable prices. We had the baked Walleye and it was excellent. The service was great and friendly. If you want atmosphere, don't come here.... More

Don't go here if you only have an hour for lunch. We tried it twice in March and both time lunch took over an hour. The food was very good, just really, really slow.

If you like going into a place that looks like a dive that is dark with crumbling stone walls. If you like cheap food and drinks and a waitress who will tell you if the cook is having a good day, then you have found your spot. The tavern which is over 100 years old was originally a stable for... More

This was the poorest fish fry I've ever had in the greater Madison area. The wait staff was excellent and the beer was very good. The fish fry was overcooked and the fries were not worth eating. It is truly amazing that a restaurant bar like this can have such an extremely poor fish fry.

We lived in the area and moved about nine years ago. Always remembered the Club Tavern having an excellent Sunday brunch and was looking forward to going back after a recent trip to the Madison area. Wow, what a disappointment! I ordered the prime rib and eggs which was one of my favorites. Requested my meat medium rare and my... More

The food is very good and plentiful. The wine and drinks are about as cheap as you get in this area. It is worth a visit and probably many returns, if you are ok with dives. I like it, but in place of ambiance, this place has patina...enough patina to cover North America.

I can only speak for the Sunday breakfast. It's great...especially if you like a Bloody Mary wirh your eggs. It's kind of dark, but don't be scared...they serve good food and plenty of locals go there.
