Met family here for dinner this summer. The place has a large outdoor deck and inside, two floors. The first floor dining area has the main bar in addition to tables and booths, while upstairs has a smaller bar in the dining area.

We have eaten at a Great Dane before in Wausau and loved it, so we figured that we would stop here on our way through Madison. We were not disappointed. We sat outside on the covered patio. It was great sitting out in the lovely weather without the sun beating down on you. The food was fantastic. I got falafel,... More

Beer choices, quality and options are exceptional. I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. I ordered an ahi tuna salad which was fresh, tasty, sizable. Will certainly return next time I am in town on business.

Busy place and lots of hard surfaces, so try to get a booth if you wish to talk to the person you've come with. I had the haddock; it was good and their home made tartar sauce is best I've tasted. The natchos were huge. Typical pub selections. Looked like everyone around us enjoyed their meals too.

The food was fabulous. We teased one of our party for ordering the meatloaf, but then we were all jealous because it was fantastic! Their selection of beverages is wonderful -- I highly recommend their red cream soda. We had excellent service and we were surprised at how quickly we got our food considering that they were extremely busy.

Food was nothing special, beer was even less special. Waitress knew nothing about beer. Wouldn't go back

The Great Dane used to be very reliable and therefore we didn't tend to mind the higher price points. In the past few years the menu mainstays are inconsistent and therefore we go there much less frequently; one day the dish is perfect and delicious while the next it is greasy, poor quality ingredients, dry chicken, etc.

Thank Bridgette70
