We frequent Great Dane Pub Hilldale. It's a very large space with multiple seating rooms. We like the bar seating the best because of large tvs, darts, pool and table shuffle board to keep everyone busy. Great for whole family & friends. Good pub food with good GF options.

Each location has it's own distinct personality. We are lucky to have one right down the street that has become our home away from home. There is even a patio for summer dining complete with an outdoor bar and fire pit! Since we live in a condo, it's a great place to enjoy the summer evenings outdoors. Each location also... More

We chose Great Dane based on the proximity to our hotel and the good reviews. The menu is full of tasty sounding items and we were greeted and served by friendly staff. The poutine was excellent but the burger and fish and chips we had were just okay. Don't get me wrong, the food was fine, just not spectacular.

Upon arriving we were seated and waited on immediately. We chose to sit outside, beer was cold and food was fantastic and they have a happy hour.

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. As expected, they brew their own beers and according to family who visit there often are very... More

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.

Thank Mortfam
