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

We took a large group here for the Friday night fish fry. We thought we had a reservation, but there some misunderstanding so they weren't prepared for us when we arrived. They recovered and seated us in the mezzanine area, where we enjoyed a good meal, generously-poured cocktails, and some friendly competition on the shuffleboard table. I ordered the deep... More

Food was good, but the atmosphere and the home brewed beers were great. They on,y serve their own brewed beers which is a real cool thing to experience. You actually see their. Brewing operation as you walk in the door too.

Great Dane Fitchburg location is a favorite of those folks working nearby and/or living nearby. It is a go to spot for business and casual lunches as well as place to meet friends. Choose from the patio which has shade seating or in the sun if you dare (sometimes the bee's are pesty) with an outside bar to sit as... More

Had lunch with a friend. Place was not overly crowded. We asked to sit on the patio. Hostess waived us out and said we should try to find a place to sit. My tap was warm although my friends beer was fine. We both ordered the sustain-a-burger (buffalo). I asked for med. it was well done. even though my friend... More

After the awful experience I had at Liliana's, this was a refreshing change. Super friendly waitstaff, timely, and delicious food. I appreciate the gluten friendly menu too!

We hosted a graduation party for my son who had just graduated from UW-Madison at this location of the Great Dane. They gave us a private room, even though they said that would not be possible when I made the reservation 2 months in advance. The service & food was great and everyone had a wonderful time.
