Our group of five ordered two baskets of the Hot Soft Pretzels and an order of the Cheese Curds as Starters. Each of these Starters was delicious but we especially liked the huge pretzels, almost a meal by themselves! Outdoor patio was wonderful on this August evening. The servers were friendly, attentive and efficient. Wish we had a Sprecher's in... More

How about 1/2 a great sandwich, a full salad, and a high-quality side (e.g. beer cheese mashed potatoes) for $8? Yeah, and served outside on a great patio by experienced, helpful waiters. I highly recommend this place if you're around Madison.

It's difficult to serve a table of 10 on a Fri. Evening, but Sprecher's did a wonderful job. Everyone's food was great. I had the fish fry, and as a Wisconsin Catholic, I know my fish fry's. This was excellent! The outside bar was very busy, but the service was great. Our party consisted of 4 retired meeting planners and... More

Our food was really good. The restaurant was a little loud so we were happy to be seating in a separate room. We told the waitress it was my birthday so I got a free chocolate sundae which was good!

Skip this joint! The food is just below average and portions are not generous. They have a large menu but the healthy options are skimpy! Waited 1.5 hours for our food- due to busy "meat market" outside- with 5 small children. Atmosphere is average. Would not go back!

Since it was close to our hotel, we decided to try Sprecher's Despite the mixed reviews. We were there on a Monday night, so it was slow. The patio was filled but inside there were a great many empty tables. We shared the Shrimp & Black Bean Ceviche. It came in a ice cream sundae glass, and served with home... More

This is a HUGE place and that is reflected in the lack of "timeliness" of the server-staff. We've been there 3 times and everytime our stay was MUCH longer than it needed to be...even getting the bill seemed really slow. Staff seems very disinterested and not at all "into" their guests.

Came to Madison for a girls trip. Stayed across the street from Sprecher. Having eaten at the Sprecher in Lake Geneva, we decided to walk on over to have dinner. Since it was so nice out, and we don't get too many chances in WI to sit outside, we asked for a table out on the patio. It was a... More

We were pretty excited to go to Sprecher's for dinner. We drove about an hour to get there. Walked in and saw a beautiful restaurant, there was music on the patio, it seemed like a fun environment, we were impressed. Well this place wears a whole lot of lipstick. We went to get a table, and were given a little... More
