State Street has a really good burger with a condiments station so you can fix it like you like it. Lots of brews and TVs in downtown.

Can be summarized as a bar that dabbles into food. They do Brats quite well and offer many, many toppings. The full bar is not a bad thing either! Would recommend this place for anyone looking for a quick no frills meal and a drink.

Classic brats, killer waffle fries, cold draft beer, wall to wall students, and a few dusty alums. For college town eats that go easy on the wallet, it just doesn't get any better.

Originally went here when it was the Brat House... Menu has changed but you can still get a "Red Brat"... Is there any other kind!

Stopped in prior to a hockey game. If you want to start a tab, they authorize your credit card for $ 100.00 on the spot. Food was quick but VERY SALTY. As a matter of fact, could feel the salt running through my veins at the hockey game. Will not go back.

We always stop here for a pitcher and food. Cheese curds are great as are the prime rib sandwiches. Especially fun when school isn't in session - still crowded but can get a booth!

State Street Brats offers a consistently satisfying experience that meets expectations for a Brat House. If you are looking for gourmet food, this isn't it - but the brats, burgers, fries and curds are outstanding. Tremendous selction of beers and fun environment.

I stopped in for dinner. They had a beer special. Excellent start. The bar tender took my brat order. But didn't mention anything about fries. I over heard the cook ask about them and then asked for fries. She mentioned that she didn't like brats so didn't know which were the best. Seriously! They have a condiment bar with sauerkraut,...

If you are in a mood for a burger or brat, this place is hard to beat. Not fancy but since probably a gallon of beer is spilled on the floor nightly with the college crowd, what do you expect. We sat outside and it was a perfect people watching place. Service was decent and the food was excellent for... More
