“Great Burgers”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

Don't come for the ambiance, it's just a bar that serves food, but the hamburgers are some of the best I've had anywhere!

“Love It!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

My favorite place in Madison!!! I have been coming to Brother's Three for 5 years now. My girlfriend and I like to go to more upscale restaurants, but this will always be number one on favorite restaurants.

It is definitely not the place if you are looking for a quite dinner. Bev, Pam, and James are the best. THE WORLD NEEDS MORE PLACES WHERE THE FOOD AND PEOPLE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF LIKE BROTHERS THREE! We have too many places where you pay $20 -$25 bucks because we are paying for the atmosphere of the restaurant. Brother's Three has great food and great service. It might not look the best but people come back and it is always packed because it has great food for amazing price!!

Hands down, for the rest of my life, will always come back to Brothers Three!! Thanks Bev, Pam, and James for the hospitality, great food, and of course, best old fashioneds in town!!

“Close to work”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

We work a couple blocks away from Brothers and they always have fair priced specials, but usually the specials have so much you can't eat it all. Good problem to have.

Fair prices, fast service and food is always fresh and hot. For a quick and good meal, you can't beat them..

“neighborhood Bar- YUMMY”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

My husband and I only live a few blocks from the restaurant- No matter what you order here it is going to be good! What you may find amazing...THE CHEF, yep I said CHEF! this guy is a one man show, the food he puts out by himself i have seen a chef and sous chef struggle to plate. waitstaff leaves a bit to be desired??? the "ladies" have been there awhile and can be snarky from time to time esp. if you are not a regular ( which we are not) but do enjoy going there when we can.

“The real deal: Heaven near Weinerville.”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

Cheeseburgers: Incredible, in fact some say the best in all of 'Sconny. I alway get mine w. fried onions but after reading the other review I'm going to try their mushrooms too. Bloody Marys: yes, also fine. Prime rib? Yep, they even get that right. Brisket sandwich platter, not bad. Try the cheeseburger soup for a real comfort food thrill, what a guilty pleasure and unique item. Breakfast service ends at 10:30 so get their early for massive omelettes of glee and way more. It's like you are eating at a southern soul food home--big portions, lots of gravy, fried steak awesome, yes yes yes. A neighborhood treasure whose current management really has their stuff together. 5 stars easy. True Wisconsin jukebox, heavy on country classics & Orbison. Massive Friday fish fry. Way beyond a neighborhood bar; a jewel near Weinerville. Remarkable burgers that easily beat Dotty's & are in the same succulent zone as the Caribou. Madisonians know what I'm sayin'... Fries, slaw also excellent.
