“Better than average bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

If you're looking for a quiet meal - don't come here. This isn't a fine dining establishment - it's a sports bar. The floor is wooden (like a gymnasium), there are lots of televisions where people can watch the game, and there's a lot of commotion among the folks coming here.

Once you've prepared for the sports bar atmosphere, I think you'll be happy here. Despite being a "sports bar", it's quite clean. The menu is basic sports bar fare (wings, sandwiches, deep-fryer fare), but they use reasonably decent ingredients (except for the seafood, which is clearly pre-packaged frozen - but I was foolish to think they'd be better), and prepare them well. The price is a little bit steep for basic fare, but you'll get a good meal.

“Great family lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

We were in Madison for a nights stay at Clifty Inn. We walked around at the downtown Madison shops and swung by Shooters to watch the IU/Butler basketball game and have a late lunch. It was four adults and one child age 2. We each had steak burgers and fries. The burgers were big and the fries abundant. I could not complain for $10 at the amount of food we received. The burgers had a great taste and the fries were good as well. I also enjoyed a few draft beers while watching the game. I will definitely keep Shooters in mind for a quick lunch next time I'm in the area. Plenty of TVs and the service was welcoming too.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Friendly service, good food. Lots of TV's for the sports starved. Centrally located, stays open later than most shops on Main Street.

“Better than expected...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012 via mobile

Contrary to some of the other reviews on T.A. pertaining to Shooters, my experience was first rate and I'm glad I gave it a chance. I sat at the two deep bar area and the service, burger and Fat Tire draft were all very good. Nice overall place for a single guy out on business, young adults or families. Check it out!
