Unattentive staff. Dry, bland, overpriced food. Place looked nice though, I guess this books cover should've stayed closed.

Went there on a Friday night. Most of us had the fish fry. The positives: nice decor, nice bathrooms. The negatives: rude manager (gave a ridiculous explanation for our delayed seating despite having a reservation; he should have just apologized), slow service, mediocre food, overpriced cheese curds.

We had a nice dinner here great. Both the Shepard's pie and Ruben were great! The Guinness cake was huge! The service was great as well.

Group of 12 women having a good time at the outside patio. Waitress great, food good. Went inside to have another beverage and we get treated like crap by the bartenders. We were going to get our picture taken and one women stood on bottom of the table and it wasn't bolted to the floor so it tipped a little... More

I made a reservation at this restaurant for a small private party after my son's graduation from the University of Wisconsin. All the restaurants closer to campus were already booked so I took a chance here, not knowing what to expect. First off, they were very accommodating as our arrival time kept changing based on time constraints from the possibility... More

After a long trip I craved comfort food, usually hard to find when you are in the road. This place hit the spot with Irish Sheppard's pie. Ground beef and lamb with pea&carrot light beef gravy topped with mashed potatoes mixed with cabbage. Don't knock it until you've tried it. They also had a Wisconsin version substituting mac&cheese for the... More

Don't even think about asking for a beer. I was at a retirement party there yesterday and asked the bartender what beer he recommended. His response was "We have 36 different beers, you will have to be more specific" with a put-out voice and look in his face. I thought a Pub would have beers they want customers to try.... More

I stopped at Erin's on a Saturday night after a long day at a tech conference. The restaurant (and Pub), came recommended online and also by hotel staff. As you might expect, Erin's was packed, but I wasn't interested in being the single guy at a table, so I headed to the bar. My only comment here would be not... More
