Friendly Pub

The Great Dane is a perfect place to go for good food, beer and friendly atmosphere. The food is good and the staff is happy to give you an honest opinion on the food. The locals in the place are very friendly and I was made to feel at home while on my business trip.

Went here of a business meeting. Sat outside on the deck. The food was good and great portions. I had a burger and it was cooked just how I wanted it. Very juicy. Others had a salad which looked and tasted good as well, so they said.

We ate here as part of a group of 17 people and sometimes things don't go so well with large groups, but NOT in this case. The service was wonderful and there was no problem with getting separate checks. The food was excellent and the beer was outstanding. By all means, try the porter! This is a great place and... More

I prefer the other Great Dane locations but sometimes we are stuck going to the Fitchburg location. This time we were there on Friday night for fish. We both ordered the perch special and its was, well, meh. The fish was pretty tasteless, the fries were undercooked, and the service spotty. They give you a tablespoon of cole slaw and... More

This was the second time that my family and I have eaten Sunday brunch at their Hilldale location. They have a nice variety of tasty food and the service and ambiance is good, too. I've never been disappointed the times I've eaten there or at their Fish Hatchery location.

We love to eat at the Dane when we have a chance and are in the area but this time we were disappointed. It was very busy and the food suffered. When we recived our food none of it was hot and fresh like it should be. The wait staff did a ok job but that's about it. Not sure... More

What I like about this brewery is that they have a full bar and a lot of wine choices also so you don't have to just get beer. I had 2 beers, one was light in color but not in flavor (very hoppy!) and the other was darker in color but more of a mild beer. They were both very... More

Busy, noisy, but overall enjoyable. A sports bar with better-than-average hamburgers. Service was knowledgable and fast.
