Yesterday around 1 P.M. I stopped in for lunch. The menu posted outside listed fish and chips with slaw; I ordered it. I was the only customer in the place and I noted the lack of salt and pepper shakers on the tables. Loud music...More

As a whiskey drinker for all occasions, I highly recommend Brocach. An incredible selection unparalleled in my opinion in Madison and also fun small eats - definitely a great combination.

An Irish-themed restaurant offers me Corned Beef and Cabbage? I'm in! Theirs was quite tasty, though it was a bit skimpy on the beef.

This may be the least "Irish looking" Irish pub I've ever visited. But there is an excellent selection of whiskey, whether Irish, Scotch or Bourbon, very good food, properly poured pints, and a comfortable atmosphere that is very "Irish feeling".

This is a fun spot to enjoy Madison's amazing summer weather (on the patio) or to warm up on a cold winters day. The lobster mac-and-cheese as well as the fish and chips were both tasty (if not low-calorie) and the service was great.
