Waiter and staff were mad at us for moving 2 tables together to fit our group of 5, instead of using the high pub tables that seat 6. We did this because we were with our 88 year old step-mother who could not climb up...More

Three of us ate at the bar after college moving day. Nice to have great service combined with good food. Salmon sandwich and the cheese curds were notable. We will make this our neighborhood eatery.

Great neighborhood place, with sports atmosphere. Always busy, but still good service. Various burgers the best choice.

The menu is nothing special. The bar is nothing special. The tap beers are okay, with a few local craft brews. The staff is friendly and the burgers are broiled and delicious. Inexpensive! Friend and I each had a burger, shared onion rings, and drank...More

As high as the expectation - as deep is the disappointment. Very small place and as it's locally famous - it show no justification for it. Simple - very simple - too simple standard "friday fish fry". No reason to wait so long without be...More

Read about this little spot online, had to check it out! The employees were friendly and the burgers are super juicy! Made from fresh meat from the butcher across the street at the market! Excellent value for the money- it's a must stop if you're...More

If one of your friends wants to see what a Wisconsin tavern looks like, take them here. The Friday fish fry is excellent. The service is friendly, to the point of being almost nurturing. The beer list is limited, but they did have Velveteen Habit...More
