Great place

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. I've visited all... More

Had an early dinner with another couple & had a nice time. Lots of choices for food- we had the nachos & they were wonderful! Enough to feed 4 for under $10.00. If you're a beer drinker- they have several different types.

A wide range of food to choose from, and some tasty beverages make this a great place to dine. We started with the New Nakoma Nachos as an appetizer (it's HUGE). I ordered the Dane Burger with Kettle Chips - YUM! I highly recommend the Great Dane Pub & Brewing to anyone traveling in the Madison, WI area...

This is my go-to neighborhood place, especially in the summer when I can eat on the balcony. One of my favorite dishes is their tuna sandwich. The servings are always plentiful and delicious. They also brew a good selection of beers. The bar area has lots of TV's to watch sporting events. The only drawback is the ecustics are bad... More

This Great Dane is one of four in Madison and all have slightly different personalities. This one has outdoor seating, a round bar as you enter, an upstairs game room with pool table, etc. and more. Hard to believe but they do offer the best fish tacos in town and also a West African Peanut Stew that I order a... More

This place is always happening. Good beers - they brew some of their own - and good food on most of the menu. I've been told to stick to the "down home cooking" stuff on the menu as opposed to the exotic & the fish. I stay at the Quality inn next door to it and it is a 2... More

All the food is great. They brew their own beer and sodas. Since I moved here, I at least go here once a week. I have not had a bad meal yet.
