“right in the middle of it all!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

Met a friend I hadn't seen for a long time here for lunch. Due to construction (summer 2014), we had to park in a parking ramp but that wasn't too bad. I had a burger, she had a brat and we each had a cob of corn (which was really good - the servers did not know where it was shipped in from). with school out, there weren't a bunch of students around and we easily found a place to sit. So fun to watch sailors, walkers and others as we ate. I've lived in Madison for years and have never eaten here. Now I know why people rave about it so much!

“Stop here for the ice cream and enjoy the view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

You can spend time relaxing with either some ice cream from Babcock Hall (recommended) or some beer with chips. Either way if you are on campus for a visit stop by and relax and enjoy the lake view. Plenty of seats for everyone.

“The REAL Terrace in Madison”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Met a friend for lunch at Memorial Union and ate out on the Terrace because it was a nice day. The World Cup was on a big screen outside so it could have been hard to converse. However, we were able to find a table on the newly renovated Theater deck and had a pleasant lunch. My friend brought her lunch; I bought a salad from the inside Cafeteria. The Terrace is a great place to bring a brown bag and to enjoy the view.
