Good bar food.

Ate here today for the first time. They have a pretty decent lunch menu. Some cool different types of burgers. Happy hour from 3-6. $1 off any mixed drink which I found nice because most places it's just for rail booze. Also beer specials. It was quiet. Staff was friendly. Food came out quick.

In town on business with colleagues and we went looking for something not chain and came across this place. Decided to give it a go. When we walked in, we were greeted by the strong odor of cigarette smoke! Really?!? I felt like I was eating on a runway, the way the booths faced directly out to the aisle. Food... More

It's a dive bar. Sticky floors, lots of locals. They have daily specials, and I'm guessing that's one of the only draws. Went to check it out, had one drink, left asap. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good.

We were visiting Madison and had a couple hours to kill before a wedding. We spotted O'Grady's and stopped in for a beer, which turned into two beers and the shrimp appetizer. The shrimp was amazing!! The atmosphere is nice and relaxed. I particularly liked the giant sized badger who was keeping watch over the place. Friendly bar staff. Cold... More

We have been here before and it's been good enough to return. Our lunch over the weekend was unexpectedly great! We had a Reuben wrap and BLT with clam chowder. The craft beer choices were good and served cold! Dani was a fast, friendly, attentive server. Try this place if you haven't!

Visited our son in Madison and wanted to try something new. We stumbled upon O'Gradys. I had the reuben and it was excellent. My husband and sons had burgers and said they were very good. The four of us ate fro $35 with tip...granted, we all drank water, but that is still a very reasonable meal for 4 adults. We... More

More of a sports bar atmosphere and menu. Not really Irish. Had lunch here. Fish had fish and chips -- soggy and cold. I would not stop here again. Server was really busy (place 1/4 filled) and kept apologizing for her service. Not a big deal, but she made it a big deal by apologizing so much it was over... More

I have been to Martin O'Grady's only to meet friends and have a few beers. I loved it because you can share a beer and not have to talk loud. I never had any food so I can't comment on the food but the beer is very reasonably priced

We were looking for a low key place with good 'bar food' but didn't want to head down to the university area. This place caught our eye as we drove by and we stopped. The food was really good, nice portions and very reasonably priced. Service was great and no loud music - we could hear our own conversation.
