Awful service and awful food. Burger water was overdone and fries were luke warm. Did not finish my food.

Tipsy Cow is a fun place to hang out, whether in the unique restaurant or out on the patio. Great selection of craft beers, good fries and cheese curds as well. Definitely recommend for a fun night out!

The Tipsy Cow is great for a burger or a sandwich at lunch. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable and our server did a great job. When we were there, the place was crowded with happy customers. They offer outside dining in season.

I've only been here for a beer, so I can't speak to the quality of the food. The beer selection is good, with craft choices from Wisconsin and elsewhere. I had a Three Floyd's IPA from Illinois while killing sometime at the bar. Weekday happy...More

WOW - Tipsy Cow delivered on our first visit. Alex (with an X) took wonderful care of us, introducing us to the Tipsy Cow menu and many options for adult beverages. We started with Alligator bites, yum and a dark beer and a spiced cider...More
