"Had a business trip to Madison and went here for dinner. The only thing that I'm sorry about is that we didn't know about the outdoor seating. We were in the Rathskellar...dark, wooden panels...very nice atmosphere. Interesting and eclectic menu; I had Drunken Jerk: jerk pork wrapped in banana leave..."s with tropical veggies and plantains. Very good. Tried locally brewed beer which was also tasty. Good humored and helpful staff. I was impressed and want to go back to try something else off that awesome menu. Prices very reasonable. There is one in Wausau, which is much closer; i'll have to give it a try in future.

"We went to the Vintage for our daughter's graduation from UW-Madison. The staff was very accomodating and did a wonderful job. We had a taco buffet and Slider buffet. Excellent food and excellent service!"
