“Great place to watch a game.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This is your traditional campus bar. Had some bar food that served its purpose (greasy, but very tasty). Lots of nice TVs, friendly staff, and lots of local beers on tap. Hard to complain.

“Brats, beers, and Badgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We went before a 2:30PM Badger game and could barely find a table by 11AM. Once we did find a table outside, service was prompt and friendly.

“Complete heavenly madness for a sports fan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

The BEST sports bar I've ever hoisted a brew and downed a brat at. There for Wisconsin vs Michigan State, and the energy of the crowd and the fun atmosphere are unparallelled. A two story gem, with a beautiful outdoor area on scenic State Street, and it lives up to its billing.

Beer and food avg price and avg quality, but this is what you dream of when you picture sharing a festive collective Saturday at a rowdy college town.

You better like people and noise, because this is nuts! Great selection of beer.

“Some good some bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Went there with my family for lunch. Reuben Brat was great!! Cheese curds were not good. Seem to come from a box. Not homemade. Waffle frys were burnt. Pop for the kids was in a pitcher and was mostly ice. not a good value.

“Great place to hang out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

LImited menu but tasty. Gotta try their cheese curds - darn tasty. Our group ate outside in September and enjoy the fresh air. Good for lunch. OK for dinner too.
