I arrived at this place last Sunday while in Madison visiting the law school there. Definitely has more of a restaurant feel when I walk in but there's much more to it than meets the eye. In a whole other section there's a bar/billiards area. And in the back there's a beer garden but it was closed because of the weather.

I sat down consumed a solid Burger while my dad got the Pot Pie. The Burger and Pot Pie were both solid but not exceptional. The menu, however, was very eclectic, I really want to try that Peanut Stew next time I come.

Good selection of beers with about 15 available and 2 gravity casks. Styles weren't really out of control but varied nicely.

Service was good and attentive but I don't think the waitress knew a whole lot about the beers.

After dinner we went to the bar and played some pool while watching the Pats pull out a close one against the Steelers. It would have been great if the bar had a big screen tv though.

4 pints consumed in all and all ranged from good to excellent with the Porter being my favorite. Crowd was varied with some bikers and college people and mid-30 year olds. This might change on weekdays though. Anyways, a really nice place, one to get some good food, drink good beers, and enjoy.
