Really nice place, with a huge outside patio featuring weekend live music in summer. The beers were great and the root beer legendary. The food menu is large and varied, with something for everyone. Only trouble we had was the wait for a table and slow service. We heard the kitchen was backed up with orders. Service was very friendly... More

I've eaten at three Sprecher restaurants and this is hands down my favorite. This location has an exceptional outdoor deck area complete with bar, several fire pits, comfortable seating area and flat screen TVs. We had dinner at about 6pm on a Saturday and were given our choice of tables. The waitress was very friendly and recommended a few drink... More

Awesome patio setting. We go here with friends when we need somewhere outdoors, attractive, and decent. This visit we ordered many beers and the pretzels with mustard appetizer. App came with 3 mustards: 1 great, 1 average, 1 too sweet (root beery?). Service was decent; young waitress answered our questions and put up with us moving to a table with... More

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!
