My husband and I have been here several times with varying experiences. The last time we went we both ordered a burger. Him the Dane burger and I ordered the bacon burger. Both were cooked as ordered despite being busy. Cheese curds are also one of our favorites in Madison with a crispy beer batter coating and gooey center. Mac... More

We have visited this Great Dane location multiple times. We enjoy the "seat yourself" area in the upstairs of the restaurant. Upstairs the Dane features several tables with serve yourself taps built right into the table- a fun touch! The upper level also has pool tables, shuffleboard and darts and a full bar. We always have the cheese curds and... More

4 of us went to this place and all our meals were different. The speed of service was good as was each of the dishes. The beer from their own micro brewery was also top quality (we had a mixed platter). We enjoyed it so much we made a return visit later.

My husband and I ate at the Great Dane the evening of August 15th. We ate outside on the deck and it was very comfortable. The hummus appetizer and it was tasty and a nice change from the deep fried variety of apps. I had the New Mexico green chile soup that was terrific. My husband had the walleye entrée... More

We stopped in around 10pm on a Tuesday night for a quick eat and a beer or two. We sat at the bar and were "served" by a tatted up and face pierced bartender who seemed annoyed to be working. I don't want to be dramatic, but she may have been the worst bartender I've experienced in my over ten... More

Ate here on a Friday night. No wait for seating and quick, forthcoming server. She had honest suggestions on the beer tap and food. Two of us had the Mac & Cheese with Buffalo Chicken and Pretzel Roll. Superb! Fantastic Flavor! We also had the Light Lager which I really liked but not with the Mac & Cheese. My husband... More

The food was great, service was a bit slow, but taken it was prom night, it was expected. Good to watch sporting events, and good for a nice romantic dinner in the top level.

Ate here while visiting our son. Service, food, and beer -- excellent. Loved the "sampler tray" method of serving their beer: pick any 4 of their ales, beers served in 4oz glasses. One pint - 4 different choices. I focused on the darks; husband on the pales.

This location has a unique set up with has a good feel to it. Crop Circle Wheat and the BBQ meatloaf are very good standard, consistent menu items. The staff has been friendly when I've been there. I'll be back again.
