Something for everyone

This place did a great job in terms of quick and friendly service, despite a big convention crowd and some very large parties. The menu had something for everyone, I think, with a big variety of food at very reasonable prices. We had the fish and chips (a special for that day). The fish was... read more

Liked the brat fries, cheese soup was thin with little flavor. Waitress was perspiring heavily- not too appetizing. No head on the root beer- is that normal?

The only way I'd recommend going to Sprecher's is if it's simply for beer and appetizers. The beer is excellent, their Abbey Trippel is one of my all-time favs. They also have pretty good apps and their patio is awesome in the summer. That said, the food is very hit and miss and average on a good day. There is... More

Went to Sprecher's based on a recommendation from a local, but had heard of Sprecher from back east with their hard root beer, which is delicious. Their hard ginger beer (on tap) is also really delicious! Wasn't too hungry so I had the soft pretzels (4 large sticks) with cheese and 2 mustard dippers- a spicy mustard and a root... More

My 12 year old son and I had a good dinner. His Schnitzel was good - it did need a pinch of salt. My wurst platter was tasty. The German Riesling was good but a little pricey at $7 a glass. Dessert was also good. Service was friendly and prompt.

Excellent lunch place--very good pub food--German accent. Many beers available as well as brewed root beer and creme soda. Good selection of lunch fare. Excellent service. Convenient to Madison Marriott West.

Across street from Marriott. Great outdoor area. Very busy place. Staff seemed overwhelmed. Good beer choices. Skip the rueben bites, basically fried spam. To die for chocolate cake. Little pricey for me but average for area.

My family went for lunch on a Thursday. We were seated fast, however, it took over 1 hour to get the food. I would have walked out myself, but the family wanted to wait. The place was not busy when were first got there either. When the food did come it was OK....not worth the wait however. Will pick someplace... More

Burgers and Beer - how can you go wrong? The beer is top-notch here, icy cold and quite a few delicious choices. We truly enjoy our (huge) flight of 6 beers. You'll want to share that flight my friends. The burgers were cooked to perfection with a touch of pink within on a soft brioche bun. The beer cheese soup... More

You don't have to speak German to enjoy this restaurant! From beer to root beer and the spaetzel, it's heaven without traveling too far.
