This is a "good" bar (hence the 4.0). It won't blow you away, but it can easily be an old stand-by.

It's kind of a neighborhood bar. Right off willy st., you'll see everyone from undergrads to grad students to folks in the neighborhood to old hippies.

The bar is nicely lit, and on the weekends they have live music. And, of course, I should comment on the beer: it is pretty standard, but they always manage to have a nice selection of local microbrews on tap.

They'll always have Lake Louie on tap, and also look for Capital Brewing Co, the Great Dane, and New Glarus. Sometimes you might even see the Angelic Brewing Co.'s beers on tap.

The food is good too, and they cater to vegetarians pretty well. Worth a visit.
