great burgers, good beer...what else do you want-nothing swanky as it's a bar, but the food says it all.

Wouldn't recommend going here for the food, though the staff is friendly and attentive. Great place to watch the Packers if you are Middleton for business. Open and spacious; didn't get to catch any of the live music.

The bands here are always good and the crowd is a lot of fun. Nothing special on the drink menu and the mixed drinks are OK Easy parking to boot.

A few of us were staying at a nearby hotel and happened to be walking past Hody's. There was live music playing on Saturday night so we popped in to listen for a set. The place had a friendly townie vibe.

Fun place to meet up with friends. Try the Hody Club, 3 toasted slices of sourdough with fresh deli meats grilled to perfection. Great staff and love music every weekend.

Nice bar with everything you'd expect to find in a local hangout. Burgers are great and well priced. Service can be slow, so plan on just bellying up to the bar like the locals for better service.

I have going here for years. My husband and I used to go every Thursday evening with a group of friends for a quick bite and a few beers. We also used to go occasionally for the music. Lately I have going with my mother after appointments for lunch and wine. Our order has been so consistent lately that they... More

Some might like this place because it was a parallel universe from the rest of Madison. I would have fit in a lot more if I were wearing a Packer's or UW sweatshirt and had drunk a lot of beer in the middle of the day. Looks like this is a place for regulars and we were obviously not part... More

If you're visiting and want to stop for a beer and have a good time with no pretensions, this is the place. It's a huge place that's great for darts or pool or just out for a night of drinking with friends. They get pretty rowdy later in the night. A lot of the older locals frequent this place late...
