We stopped in here for a quick bite before a 3 hour car trip home. It was a nice experience. We were a little ahead of the lunch crowd, so the restaurant was nice and quiet. The service was pleasant and efficient. The menu had a large amount to choose from. The food was hot and well prepared. If you... More

A new kale salad with added salmon was a taste treat (it isn't offered with salmon but I asked and the server assurred me they would do that too). Followed by a great chocolate dessert. Let's see great service, a new tasty salad and chocolate. What's not to like?

Very comfortable outside eating. Waiter did forget my wife's salad dressing but he made up for by being apologetic and very courteous.

The appetizers and beer are great, especially during happy hour! A lot of selections of both that pair really well together. Nice relaxing atmosphere with good service.

Fresh glorious beer brewed onsite, small batch micro brew soda offered for non-drinkers. Good food with good service. Pretty standard higher end menu including steaks, salads, and fish. Did I mention the beer, it's really good. Worth a visit if you are staying in the area for EPIC training. Just across the street from Comfort Suits in Madison WI.

Slow Service and food that lacked quality but large portions. When the waiter said "did you save room for desert" before we had our appetizer I knew we were in trouble. On the positive side the manager did visit the table and made a small adjustment on bill for wrong food delivered. Most meals where cold. With all the choice... More

In anticipation of a large crowd, we reserved a fairly large portion of the restaurant and patio to celebrate my husband's retirement. Travis (the manager) was more-than-accommodating throughout the whole process. He answered all of our questions immediately, and with a super-positive attitude and extremely friendly demeanor. They were willing to tweak the party menu to our liking, and were... More

My son wanted to celebrate his 8th grade graduation with dinner at Sprecher's. After putting our name on the waiting list, we waited in the bar area. The bartenders walked by us multiple times without stopping and waited on others that got there after us. 10 minutes into waiting I started waving my hand and no one responded. We finally... More

We enjoyed the pub. They have a regular happy hour and another starting at 9PM. 20 of us walked over from the Marriott one night and had a blast. They had a band that was rocking. The outdoor beer garden is really nice with firepits and lots of bar seating. We enjoyed the brews, root beer, hard root beer, etc.

We stopped in for lunch on Saturday afternoon. The place was only about 25% full in both the bar and restaurant. The kids were excited to try the "cheese curd burger" but said it was just OK once they ate it. My meatloaf lunch plate was delicious and the extra side salad was crisp and fresh. Hubby ordered the cajun... More
