4/5  rDev -3.4%

Atmosphere: Large and classy looking bar with a fairly large dinning area that is separted into several large sections. Look like a laid back place.

Quality/Selection: Stopped in for lunch while beer shopping madison. The menu is focused on premium menu item like grass fed beef and lots of great wisconsin comfort food. Large beer selection on draft and in bottles. Nothing that really stuck out and grabbed my attention.

Service: Sat at the bar and was greated with a menu immediately. Little slow geting my bill, but thats my only complaint.

Food: Had a really tasty burger with wisconsin cheese curds as my side with the burger. It was decent food, but a little bit over priced.

Value: Just a little bit over what I think I should have paid for the meal. Nothing too rediculous though.

Super solid line up of local and regional craft brews as well as classic national offerings. Buy one get one after 10 which is awesome if you are out late. Great bar tender and fair prices

One of my favorite places in Madison. A solid selection of WI beer on tap (usually about 30-40 available), complemented by an array of bottled craft beer. The food is also excellent - can't pass on the cheese curds and Old Fashioned burger!

I've been here a couple times now while visiting Madison and it is one of a few places I'd suggest if you only have time for 1 or 2 stops. There is definitely a very wide selection of beers. Has to be at least 50 different taps. They've expanded recently to increase that number. They do have some lame Hipster bait on tap but the abundant quality local craft on tap makes up for it.

This is also a good place to eat with more than your typical pub fried food fare. Service was a little slow and expect a crowd even on a week night.

The Old Fashioned is a great bar with great Wisconsin beer on tap or in bottles. I have been there to eat and drink about 5 times and have had an enjoyable experience every time.

I drink Ale Asylum Madtown Brown and Grays Oatmeal Stout when there and both are served properly. They have clean tap lines which helps out the whole beer drinking experience immensely. They also have Wisconsin made Baumeister Rootbeer on tap as well to drink with your food.

The food is off the chart. Cheese curds and their monster burgers are a must have. They seem to source their food locally and that is always a good thing. I have only gotten burgers, but the menu is extensive and should be explored more.

The staff is friendly, but not the quickest with their service. Waited a bit a few ti,mes for my beer, but this happens.
