Traveling solo on a business trip I had many options. They had a very good craft beer selection and very good food at reasonable prices.

The good has always been above average pub fare. The burgers are good, and the Mediterranean plate appetizer comes with babaganoush. Yummy. Their brewpub beer list is above average, and the service ranges from acceptable to good. Lots of TV's makes this a good, civilized place to watch a game.

What a delicious brunch. We did not realize they even had a brunch buffett! Prime rib, bacon, pancakes, the items on the buffett were endless. They were fresh and very tasty! That is THE Sunday brunch buffett!

Our granddaughter has severe food allergies, so the fact that this restaurant is allergy aware was a primary consideration in choosing it. But beyond that, we found the food to be quite good. The adults in our party had the Alpine Grilled Cheese sandwich, the Chicken Salad Croissant, and the New London Bridge Fish Fry and our granddaughter had the... More

Ordered the pricier ($14) 1/2lb burger which if memory serves is a mix of prime rib and ground chuck. The meat must have been very fatty, because it shrunk down to a very small size. The bun dwarfed the patty. Flavor and toppings were good, but $14 was steep for what I got. Fries were fine as was the service.... More

When I asked for a good place to go for a Sunday Brunch, lots of people suggested Great Dane. I was looking for a good place for a special event family brunch as we were not disappointed. The Dane's website doesn't describe their brunch menu but they have a HUGE brunch room with breakfast items: french toast, waffles, eggs, egg... More

We had a light lunch after some shopping at Hilldale. The soups are a highlight, each of us had a cup or bowl. We ordered the potato, African chicken stew and the French onion. Service was good. The presentation of the food on the plate was uninspired, but everything tasted good.

The Great Dane (any of the locations) is always a consistently great spot for any situation: meeting friends, taking visitors, watching a game, or just grabbing a meal or drinks. All of the food is good, I've never had a bad experience. If you like craft beers, this is an especially good spot for you. I always suggest the Dane... More
