Went to Badgerland after the Badger game on a holiday weekend and our large group was easily seated inside and served promptly with local draft brews and brats! Enjoyed the food with healthy sized portions. Appetizers were fine but nothing out of the norm. Would go there again for food, but if you want cozy, historic or charming atmospheres, there... More

I ate several times at the Badgerland Grill during my stay at the DoubleTree, Madison. They serve a wonderful, plentiful breakfast buffet with a variety of hot and cold items. It was superb to know that you could get a filling-breakfast without much delay. My group also frequented the Bar/Grill at nigh to review the day's work. Wonderful selection of... More

Josey our bartender was very friendly and made us feel like she'd known us for a long time. Bar is small so it encourages interaction between guests.

Had a couple beers here a couple times while I stayed at the DoubleTree. The beer selection is pretty good. The bartender I had and the waitress I had were both very friendly. Will return weather I'm in the hotel or not.

We met friends at this bar/grill before games at the Kohl Center. While this place is a convenient meeting place it's a total ripoff for food and drinks. We paid $60 for a wrap sandwich, a hummus plate, three domestic beers and two glasses of wine including the tip. Now I'm not a cheap skate so I didn't think much... More

Madison, WI is a college town, filled with students on a budget. So, all of the bistro bars, road-side eateries and restaurants receive glowing reviews from young adults that will probably eat anything as long as they can afford it. In saying that, based on the limited selection of "quality food" from places that would actually pass a food inspection,... More

I travel to madison for work so the doubletree hotel is like a second home. I have only ever had breakfast but I am always happy. The food quality is decent and I am always happy with the cooked to order eggs. I do wish the hotel would invest in some better coffee. The best part of the badgerland is... More
