Madison Restaurants: 75 reviews and 65 photos

Best Brewpub downtown. Good hearty food portions and good beer made on site. Situated in an old turn of the century building that used to be a hotel. It has big room with pool tables, and room that passes as a bar, and a room for dining, and a room downstairs for parties. In the summer, there is a patio that has about 12 tables.

Try the Peck's Pilsner. As with all restaurants and bars in Madison, no smoking allowed.

Favorite Dish: Big Ten Burrito is what I usually have. Huge, and tasty.
