If you love your local bar and a laid back atmosphere, then head on down to the Harmony bar on Atwood Ave. The staff is super friendly and quick to take your order. They serve the usual beverages with the focus on the local beers and brews. I love their homemade chips with the bleu cheese dipping sauce. Their bleu... More

I have been here multiple times now for lunch, and it is without question, a fantastic good old Wisconsin tavern! Sometimes you just want good bar-food, good drinks, and good company! You get all of that here. At lunch anyway. Take a seat at the bar and just enjoy yourself. I've met a few of the bartenders and they were... More

Don't miss the walnut burger or the chips with blue cheese. Great beer selections. Local and touring musicians featured. A blue color bar with refined menu.

This Madison standard is cash only. Good food, good place to see music. Small bathroom, but clean. Will go again.

This is going to be the only place you need to go for the best bleu cheese burger you've ever had. They literally drown the burger in a cheese spread of delight and once it hits your lips you'll know what amazement is!!!

My wife and I have been to the Harmony Bar a couple of times. Normally when we go to a show at the Barrymore we stop by there on our way in for a drink...or two. This time we decided to have a bite to eat. The menu looks like your normal bar grub. But there are a number of... More

The signs proclaim the best in Madison, and the recognitions are deserved. My favorite best is the walnut burger--with lettuce, tomato, fried onions, and cheddar cheese--oh my!! Locals know to order at the bar and get a close-up look at the many beers on tap. This is a corner neighborhood bar with a small town feel. It was one of... More

So we went there this afternoon and agree with the ratings. They have the best veggie burger in Madison. The burger is made from walnuts and other goodness layered with blue cheese on a bun. We also got the home made potato chips with blue cheese dressing. All in all the burger was delicious. They even sell Karbon 4 for... More

Harmony is a splendid east side of Madison bar. Live music is performed almost every weekend. What sets Harmony apart is its dynamite cheese burgers. The burgers Harmony serves are truly outstanding, I usually get two of them when I'm good and hungry. You can't go wrong with just about any of the food Harmony cooks up. But it's the... More
