Went to a going away party with 36+ people. Service (Brenna) was outstanding. Howe she maintained the tab for the drinks is beyond me. Outstanding job. The Caesar wrap was good. Wife said her Casar said was excellent and the size was large. Brenna, the waitress, did a good job with the ordering of all the food. Large Pub with... More

I love Great Dane! I have been to all three locations and they each have something unique about them. The downtown location on Doty St., was I believe the first location. It is a hip campus location and draws a lot of students. Aside from the students, what makes this location special is the atmosphere and close proximity to the... More

The food was good but the beer was meh. Service was pretty decent but really nothing stood out. The brat and bacon burger was a bit dry. The one thing that stood out was the peanut stew. It was truly amazing.

First time to this establishment and was very pleased with the quality of my food and the drink selection. I had one of their homemade beers and it was excellent. Would definitely go back here again.

You must go to the Great Dane. They have several locations, so please don't try the excuse of it not being convenient. The beer is good. The service is good. And the second floor of the east side location has a miraculous view of the capitol.

The hostess and the woman appearing to be supervisor/management were both casually dressed and a bit sloppy with oversized clothing, messy updos, and flip flops. Maybe that is acceptable attire here? Server was a bit flighty too, but boy oh boy did the food made up for it! Try the fish fry or meatloaf! The dinner salad itself was a... More

Decided to go for a burger & wings since the Great Dane Pub was open and close-by my hotel. Ordered what is named a Great Dane Burger at a menu price of $14. On this day my medium burger was a small dry burger definitely not worth it (wonder what the regular menu burger looks like). To be fair the... More
