I was staying in the Doubletree and just stopped down to the Badgerland for lunch. It was Friday, so they offered fried cod, so I had that. The fish was very good, and the slaw that came with it even better. Good service, too.

We ate here after a late Saturday night game because all the bars were busy and we were staying at the joining hotel. Overall great service for how busy they were with football fans pouring into the place. The food was basic bar food, nothing gourmet or modern. It was good late night food but nothing to write home about.... More

We had takeout from here one night which was quite good. We ate breakfast there every day which was really quite tasty (breakfast buffet included with our room package.) I had a drink at the bar and I was impressed with the options for local liquors. I wish they had some outdoor seating.

We had an early dinner prior to attending at concert. All 3 of us had wraps--large, filling, and delicious. Side orders of fries and coleslaw were good, although the coleslaw was a bit peppery. Excellent prompt and attentive service!

Walked by on our way to a concert. We were told about 20 minute wait but got seated in about 5 minutes. I had a chicken sandwich and my husband had a burger. Food was good, nothing over the top.

Have had meals here during a few stays at Doubletree. Breakfast has good coffee and juice, and yogurt, but prepared foods like pancakes, eggs and sausage are really heavy and greasy. Lunch and dinner are not bad, have some twists on traditional dishes and executed pretty well. Salads were fresh and meats well seasoned. Decorated with Wisconsin and uw Madison... More

Okay place to catch the local post game atmosphere. They have a good beer selection and plenty of TVs. Waitstaff was very good. Close to the Kohl Center. The crowd was 30 and over which was nice since I had my 10 yr old son with me.

We chose the Badgerland breakfast buffet on two consecutive days when we stayed at the Madison Doubletree. We were impressed by the wide array of menu choices and the friendly staff's offer to include custom-cooked omelettes with the buffet. The wait staff was so very accommodating.
