Your average pub. The booth we sat in was comfortable and we ordered a few appetizers which were all tasty. My Badger niece recommended the Blackened Steak Sandwich, which all five of us ordered and it was SO FLAVORFUL and juicy!!! We went at an off time when the place wasn’t at all busy, so having to search for the... More

Martin O'Grady's offers a range of menu choices and signature appetizers. This is a great pub for small groups with a few nooks to have private conversations while dining. The outdoor patio is a great touch to enjoy weather. Food is served quickly, but always tasty.

Good Salads and sandwiches. The cobb salad was served sort of odd with the ingredience in separate piles on the plate where you can mix them in any order you want. There was lots of everything except lettuce! Was still good, just different. I had the French Dip and it was very good. Service was good too but it wasn't... More

The atmosphere is sort of like a diner, but the bar is reminiscent of a London-style pub. The food is mediocre for a restaurant but decent for a bar, and the drinks are average but well-priced. Staff is always friendly. Demerits for painfully loud music at night, even on weekdays.

I went here expecting to just have average bar food. I was shocked and delighted to have a delicious and fresh salad. One of the best I've had on the west side! Granted, the bar staples are good too - steak sandwich, appetizers. The only thing I've been disappointed by are the nachos. Which is kind of shocking since those... More

In town on business with colleagues and we went looking for something not chain and came across this place. Decided to give it a go. When we walked in, we were greeted by the strong odor of cigarette smoke! Really?!? I felt like I was eating on a runway, the way the booths faced directly out to the aisle. Food... More

Ate here today for the first time. They have a pretty decent lunch menu. Some cool different types of burgers. Happy hour from 3-6. $1 off any mixed drink which I found nice because most places it's just for rail booze. Also beer specials. It was quiet. Staff was friendly. Food came out quick. I'd go back for sure.

It's a dive bar. Sticky floors, lots of locals. They have daily specials, and I'm guessing that's one of the only draws. Went to check it out, had one drink, left asap. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good.

We were visiting Madison and had a couple hours to kill before a wedding. We spotted O'Grady's and stopped in for a beer, which turned into two beers and the shrimp appetizer. The shrimp was amazing!! The atmosphere is nice and relaxed. I particularly liked the giant sized badger who was keeping watch over the place. Friendly bar staff. Cold... More
