Delicious.

After living in the area for a few weeks, and trying a lot of average food, we we're happy to discover the tastes of Great Dane. The service was spot on and the menu was packed full of potentially mouth watering fare. Both my wife's and my lunch were great. We will be back.

This branch of Madison's pioneer brew pub still has very tasty, if pricey beers. But the food is all meat and grease oriented, the service is not very fast or friendly, and the noise level of this place is deafening. Madison is full of smaller, quieter brew pubs with better bar food.

Really good food in a convenient location in Fitchburg. For those that don't drink alcohol, try the ginger ale. It's fabulous.

Always a good meal at the Great Dane! I love the pot pie. Service is always good. Fairly priced items and a variety of items to choose from.

Especially the steak salad -- absolutely delish! Great selection of beers/micro, etc. but a great full bar too. Oh, and the outside patio is a great place to unwind.

SUPER DELICIOUS and fantastic waiter. Great upbeat atmosphere. You can sit outside or in. I had the spinach and mozzarella vinaigrette salad with an add-on of blackened chicken paired with the Scotch Stone Ale. Other family members had burgers, which I tasted, and they have the BEST burgers in Madison, in my opinion! Cheese curds and pretzel sticks shared by... More

This would have been only three stars if not for their amazing cheese curds. Wait staff not responsive during busy Friday. Kids menu not the greatest. Go downstairs for coldstone creamery for your desert.

Great beer choices, extensive menu, knowledgeable and friendly waitress. This was our second visit to this restaurant, and it has become a staple for our family that lives in the area.

We were looking for a late night meal on a Sunday in Fitchburg - where we had just checked into a hotel. We were guided to the Great Dane Pub - an excellent recommendation ! The Pub brews its own beer on site - 6 varieties to choose from. I tried the Crop-Circle Wheat beer - a nice, light summer... More
