We enjoyed music by The Jimmys at the Monona Terrace followed by dinner at the Great Dane. We enjoyed sitting outside on their patio. The staff is friendly and courteous. The service and food were excellent! We will be stopping here again!

We went here after a badger game. Biggest tv I've ever seen. Food was incredible. Service was on point. Food options were great. They are very conscientious about food allergies as well which was great for us. Our daughter has a peanut allergy.

4 of us ate dinner in the courtyard. The food was excellent and the beer was varied and tasty. The Flights were popular with our group. If you are in the area well worth stopping in for dinner.

Given the nature of your review and the self-admitted crude behavior you exhibited at this restaurant, my guess is that you were indeed either drunk or just rude. "...no clue who I am"? Give us a break. We can tell who... More
