Meet my daughter and her friends on a Sunday evening to celebrate. Our waiter was soooo understanding and patient since we had to wait for our party to arrive. He came to the table with appetizers and refills and never seemed upset to rush us....More

We enjoyed lunch at the Cottage Grove rd location. We did find the food to be good and sitting on the second floor gave us a nice view of the state Capitol. Staff was attentive and I would recommend this as a good lunch restaurant.

We were six for lunch (plus a baby) and everyone tried something different. From salads to a bacon-bratwurst-cheeseburger it was terrific. The hearty appetite, the dieter, the picky eater and even the baby were thrilled...not an easy thing to do.

Stopped here for a quick lunch. Great service. Had the best green salad with tomatoes, strawberries, apple, dried cranberries, cheese and chicken with a citrus dressing I have ever had in my life. Can't say enough good things about this place. Go there.

My family went to the Dane for brunch and found they had more than enough for every age. A nice omelet and carving station it was very easy to get full fast. A wide variety of breakfast and lunch items plus yummy desserts.

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
