I've been here at least three times and have been underwhelmed each time. The latest was for lunch with some friends to celebrate the conclusion of a project. I ended up ordering soup since the vegetarian options are almost non-existent. I did have a decent pilsner to compliment the soup. Over, I'm not a big fan of this place. I... More

Our hotel was close by and we took a drive to find a local place to grab some dinner. Reviews seemed positive and the outside looked quaint and cute. The food was great; we upgraded to the garlic parm fries and would highly recommend. Service was quick for a Friday night. The best part was the menu just for whiskey!

This establishment has a great bar with some very good beers on tap. Staff is very friendly. Good place to find people I know and have a great time. The restaurant is more limited than most as this is place is more like a pub. The fish fry is good but the walleye is excellent! We like it a lot... More

Didn't realize this was in Middleton until we found it on Trip Advisor. Stopped for lunch. Nice beer selection. All 3 of us had burgers and we all liked them. Will definitely stop back again.

This is such a cute place! We sat outside on a great fall day and had the best service. Our young waitress was so attentive and knowledgeable! You have to try the blackberry margarita! The food was really good too. Our favorite new spot!
