Large bar , good food!

We liked how big the bar was. The food was good. The location was nice. Close to our hotel and other restaurants. We would go back for another good time.

Came all the way from ND for a packers game and with the help of The Bar it rocked. Thankyou so much for the great hospitality and answering all questions we had. When we arrived on gameday it was game faces and a great time. Even picked us up from hotel and back for free. Thankyou for making this first... More

Great place to go with great people. We traveled to Wisconsin with the Redskins for the game and ended up at this Bar and went upstairs which is called the leg lamp lodge and the people that were there were awesome. Tyler and Katie who were the bartenders were awesome. I would definitely recommend going to the leg lamp.

Fun place to go and if you like wings; this is the place to come to. People of all ages come to downtown Bar on the Avenue location. Lots of seating with easy access from the street....right on the corner; you cannot miss it. Service is fast and good also.

As with all The Bars the wings are exceptional! The calypso has been my flavor of choice lately but spicy garlic is right up there! Boneless wings are great too much better the BWW's i my opinion.

Get there early on game day couse seats fill up fast. Get's very loud and they have several TV's around to watch the game. They do drink specials on game day as well. It's busy so I guess most people like it.

When I'm working downtown, I often go here for the lunch buffet... all you can eat soup (three choices, each made from scratch, always excellent) and a salad bar for $4 if you buy a beverage too. We also like to come here after events at the Fox Cities PAC which is right across the street. They serve food until... More

Reasonably priced transportation to Lambeau. The Bar was within walking distance from our hotel! Free drinks on the bus. Friendly staff.

African-American are not welcome. We asked to have a hiphop song played and we were told " sorry, we don't want to attract the wrong crowd." I will never support any of these restaurants.
