I came here after work to meet some co-workers. They ordered cheese curds and waffle fries. The fries were very good. When I went to pay for my drinks and food, the waitress said they did not accept cards but that they had an atm. It charged $2.75 to withdraw. Even though it is only $2.75, it is still lame... More

The blue moon is a charming dive with passable wings, good burgers and great beer. The service is speedy and friendly. Most of the appetizers seem like frozen food thrown into a deep fryer

I had one of the best burgers I've ever had in a bar. The burger is huge, cooked to order (ie not cooked to death) and had a super flavor. Price was very reasonable, especially when compared with other Madison eateries.

Blue Moon is known for the burgers they pat by hand and they are really good. I am recommending you try the Reuben. It's the best corned beef in the city. Thick cut, homemade, absolutely delicious. Rich the bartender is among the best in the city.

We called ahead to ask if they could accommodate our college lax team and patents. They blocked off the a portion of the upstairs and it was perfect. The service was extemeley attentive, serving apetizers and then entrees. The burgers were awesome. It's a small place but they did a world class job at serving our group. Would highly recommend...great... More

We came in for a nice dinner of appetizers, sandwiches, and sides. The food did not disappoint and was tasty as always. However, the music (a really nice mix of current and oldies) was turned up to what had to have been the loudest volume available. We gave up trying to speak to one another and just tried to down...

Excellent service, food. Just a short walk from the UW Hospital in Madison. Lots of beer choices, the kids loved the tacos that were served on Tuesday night,. 4 of us, 10 drinks including beer and mixed drinks and wine and the bill was only $64. For Madison that was GREAT!

My wife and I stopped there for a quick bite and a beer on a Saturday night. We were allowed to sit outside and the waiter was super attentive, friendly, and knowledgable. We're both vegetarians and learned they make a homemade veggie burger which was good and hearty. They had a good craft beer selection and we had no complaints.... More

This is a great place, which I like because of its proximity to my hotel. They are open late (2 a.m.) and have a really good pub menu. The staff is really friendly and I've met some really nice locals here as well. If you're ever in the neighborhood, check them out.
