vibe: 3.5 | quality: 4 | service: 5 | selection: 4.5 | food: 3

First off, Dexter's is my go-to trivia bar. Reliably there every Wednesday.

Atmosphere is very neighborhood bar, numerous TVs (ideally playing Brewers games, the Bucks are pretty painful to watch and I prefer my friends' place for football games), large, nondescript dining area, incredibly friendly waitstaff. Food is wildly variable, awesome fish fry (except for the slaw), decent burgers, lots of overpriced other stuff.

Beer is great though, good selection, changes frequently, almost always served appropriately. Good mix of local/Wisconsin breweries, better known craft, and outliers you don't see other places (like Toppling Goliath, which definitely needs better distro around Madison, for my sake, please).

I love how this place blends a craft beer bar with a local tavern, just wish they would be more consistent with their food.
