We've been to Adlers several times and it never disappoints. First thing is that I like how the bar area is separated from the dining area. It keeps the noise down if you are just there to eat. Having said that, the drawback is that there are no TVs in the dining area like you see in many pubs. The... More

We have eaten at Adlers Pub twice on our last visit to Madison. Great family atmosphere. Great food. Service was great too! I am sure we will eat there many times in the future while visiting our children.

Great idea to offer "gift certificates" in Nov. as they are nice thank-you gifts for sharing w/hosts of house parties or ? Always can recommend the food--even to go lunches at noon! Thx for sticking by your operation during the recession, etc.?

This is such a great foodie pub and restaurant. We live nearby and enjoy either the bar for a way to wind down after the week or great restaurant with unique and yummy food options. On Saturdays, their sweet potato rice soup is my favorite soup of all time! Thursday or Friday happy hours are a great way to enjoy... More

Seven of us enjoyed dinner here. Even though reservations are not accepted after 530 our wait time in the bar was minimal. Excellent service both in the bar and in the dining room. Several of our party ordered the fish which they liked batter fried, broiled or steamed with Cajun spice. The coleslaw had a vinegar dressing, not the creamy... More

This is very nice pub style restaurant. It was within walking distance of my hotel. They have a nice menu and the prices are very reasonable. They also have a lot of different beers to chose from many of which I had never heard of before. This is not a fancy place but if you want a nice meal at... More

There's nothing special about Adlers. It was the closest bar/grill to my hotel, so I went there a few times. I would not go there if it wasn't one of the only options. The staff are inconsistent. I have had good service here and bad service. Often the bartenders have no idea how to make drinks that I thought were... More

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel for a late supper. We had pizza and salad and some interesting draft beer and finished up with coffee and a delicious apple crisp topped with vanilla icea cream.

We were staying at the nearby Hampton Inn and having arrived late asked the desk Lisa if there was a good place to eat at nearby within walking distance. She suggested RP Adlers and by the time we got there their main dining area was closed for the evening. We sat in the bar area and ordered food from there.... More
