A gem of Madison for getting your drink on.

Three stories of BBQ madness topped on the third story by an emense line up of midwest(mostly WI and MI) taps, close to 40! Well represented were New Glarus, Capital, Bells, New Holland, Tyranena, Central Waters, Shorts, 3F, just to name a few. Didn't even need to look at the bottle list. I opted to enjoy a many CW Peruvian Morning on-tap. The third floor also has a huge walk out patio overlooking the main drag out front and the capital building just a few blocks east. Very cool and airy like at an outdoor stadium.

Overall very clean and well mannered, lots of space, lots of tables, lots of choices to sit. BBQ and other foody mentionables include fish, burgers, other sandwiches and mixed dinners along with lots of appetizers. All very well priced. After all, this is a college town and not many local can afford what what be the norm in a bigger city for the same food fair.

Service on the third was a bit hit and miss for the most part. Seemed understaffed for the amount of people that were present, and for an event they knew about beforehand? So points off for that. On the main floor, same thing seemed to be going on. Actually got bumbed into by a greif grimmaced waitress who burned thru my skull with her eyes just because she was walking behind me and i stopped for a second to determine whether or not to head upstairs...felt as if she would've killed me I think if it weren't for her hands full of trays of food and beers. However, bartenders were nice enough, just busy and perhaps overwhelmed some by the amount of beer being constantly consumed.

So beyond that, I found this place to be rockin' awesome and could spend a whole lot of time there, and will for future visits. Hopefully sooner then later. Just work on that staffing.
