“Great stop before Packer Game”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

We stopped by here about 3 hours before a Packer game. The place was packed yet there is plenty of room in this place. They have 3 bars that you can get a drink while waiting for a table to open up.

The wait considering how packed the place was still was only 10 min. They actually call you on your cell phone to let you know that a table is ready so you are free to wander to one of the bars and have a drink without worrying about missing your chance at a table.

The food appeared to be simplified to make it easier on the kitchen. I had a cheeseburger and my wife had the cheese curd burger. Both of those came with fries. My burger was ok, it does appear that they have premade patties that they use on game days to make things go quicker. The burger was served with pickle, lettuce and tomato. We also tried a couple of the local beers that they had on tap.

The service was pretty remarkable considering how packed the place was. The staff never seemed to be overwhelmed, they were calm, yet still gave great service.

Overall it was a great stop before that game.

“Great pre-game choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

Went to the Distillery prior to the game at Lambeau recently. Typical sports bar atmosphere with plenty of tv's. Arrive early as it will fill up as you get within 2 hours of game time. Bloody Mary's are great but was disappointed that the option of any beer as a chaser had been eliminated. Not sure who thought that was a good idea!! Overall food is above average and service is good, but I would recommend getting your server's name so you know who to ask for when it gets busy. Only a block from Lambeau.

“Great food and great beer!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The Green Bay Tourist Book had a coupon for a free beer at the Green Bay Distillery so we thought we'd give it a try! We were sure glad we did. My husband had the taco salad - the bowl was made with Wisconsin cheese. I had the traditional Wisconsin fish fry with perch, beer battered fries, coleslaw and rye bread with butter and red onions - when in Wisconsin, do what the cheeseheads do!!! Excellent food with great service!

Hey There!

We are so glad you hear you had a great experience at the Green Bay Distillery and that you are taking advantage of our coupons as well! If you find yourself in the area again you should stop in and try our signature Cheesecurd Burger. We also just launched our own Green Bay Vodka, so I recommend getting a cocktail while you are there too!

“Near the action but not a part of it.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Good food, but lousy service. Located so close to the football stadium and yet you get the sense that you're secluded from the action going on just across the street. I will not return.

“They made it right--updated review”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We visited this place last year in June with my mom and sister who were visiting from California. At the time we were not pleased with the service and they got our order wrong. The manager contacted me immediately and offered a gift certificate to apologize, and asked us to give it another try. Since we don't get to Green Bay that often, we didn't make it back until recently, and this time things were very different. The service was great! Just the right amount of attention and checking in to see if things were okay, and the food was well-prepared and served in a timely manner. I just wish that I could go back to my original review and change it, but I couldn't figure it out. I always believe in second chances, and I think they deserve another look!
