Nice folks. Good place to stop for a bite or drink.

This is a brewpub. They had a dozen or so different draft beers. When you asked about one, they were quick to bring you a free sample. They want you to like your choice. Friendly waitstaff.

I ordered their meatloaf. The menu said it had veggies and pepper jack cheese baked right in it. I had not had a meatloaf like that before and decided to give it a shot. I was not disappointed! It was fantastic! It came with beer cheese mashed potatoes and baby carrots. It was topped with a little bit of gravy.... More

A couple friends and I were in Madison for the day and decided on Sprecher's for lunch. The restaurant is nice and visually pleasing. Though I imagine at high volume times, it would be pretty noisy. It is a brew pub so they have a selection of craft brews as well as Sprecher's sodas. The menu selection is nice as... More

Although Sprecher is known for its beer (and root beer!), they also have done a good job with their restaurants. The food is a mixture of classic Wisconsin dishes, German dishes and your traditional American dishes. I suggest trying some of the Wisconsin inspired dishes. All beer lovers should try Sprechers as well, as they offer a great selection of... More

We have been here several times and it is consistently very very good. Great beer, and the burger special on Tues and flatbread special on ? night are a great deal. Sitting in the bar area with a group, or sitting at the bar, or sitting in the restaurant with family are all good choices.

Enjoyed the Black Bavarian they served on-tap...the food was ok...thought the presentation was a little weak. German sausages were good but the rest was just ok. Would go back for the beer selection...food needs some work

Maybe coming from Cincinnati our expectations were a little high for German fare. Other than the cheese curd appetizers, the rest of our order could have stayed in the "kitchen". I have never had burnt spaetzle and the 3 wurst, never had worst. As long as you go for beer and apps you should be fine. Both dinners were overlooked,... More

My 85 year old mother and I recently enjoyed lunch, including the amazing soup! The staff is wonderful--our waitress checked back with us and made sure everything was as we wished. After lunch we met the Manager, who was so personable that we decided that future family celebrations would be at Sprecher's.

Just grabbed a bite for lunch here. It was great. For $8 I got a brat with bacon on it (yummy), pub fries, and a nice sized salad with a great cranberry vinagrette. They brew their own beer, so I tried a couple different flavors, both lighter ambers, both good. They had taster sizes for $1.75 which worked out great.... More
