Took my mom here last year for her birthday. A decent selection of local brews on tap. The place had a considerable dinner crowd, and we were seated by the door, so it was pretty cold with all the coming and going. The waitstaff was attentive and polite, and we ordered a sample plate that had the type of crazy sampler stuff that I like. I also remember ordering some smoked fish, and a sandwich, both of which were quite tasty. The atmosphere and dim but ample lighting was pleasant, the prices not low, but reasonable considering the food was of a higher caliber than your average joint, and the overall selection was ample, and up anyone's alley. I intended to come back again soon, but have not. I should.

Edited Sept 09: Went back here numerous times this year. Food keeps getting better, service was good, and I joined the passport dealy where you check off the 300 beers one by one from Wisconsin. I had this beer cheddar soup that was absolutely awesome, but a little heavy to the point that I wasn't that hungry anymore afterward.

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!
