There isn't a better place to enjoy Madison that the terrace. They have great food options, good beer and fabulous views. My only complaint is that when they have live music it's very loud. We often go with friends and want to sit and visit but it gets hard to talk and hear what's going on because of the music.

We went over Labor Day weekend right at the start of the school year for UW. This was quite the place to be - lots of students, faculty, parents, and tourists sitting and having beer, brats, and ice cream. Beautiful view of the lake and all of the activities in the lake including boating, swimming, and windsurfing.

When I think of all the places I've been and all the beautiful places to sit and have a drink, my favorites are: Santorini, Cinque Terra, Big Sur, Halibut Cove and The Union Terrace!

I've been to the student union outdoor terrace twice, once during the day and once at night. Both experiences were fantastic. I think back to my college days, which were not spent at UW and I'm jealous if this spot. On a sunny day you can watch all of the activity taking place on Lake Menona, sailing, windsurfing, stand up paddle board. Free live music, and pitchers of beer round out the experience. Such a fantastic place to relax in a sunny day.

Spent the afternoon at the Terrace with an college friend and sorority sister/pledge mom. Enjoyed a brat and beer. As always, the Terrace promises great people watching. You cannot visit the UW without going to the Terrace
