With a terrific Manhattan to sip, I thoroughly enjoyed the great Roast Beef Sandwich au Jus! The wait time was nil, but the food service took a bit more time than expected. It was very atmospheric of all the really special places in the North, with a "downtown" feeling of charm. All the Wisconsin favorites were displayed in the front of the restaurant: cheese curds, etc. I loved the fact that it was so different than what we experience in other cities, but it was obviously an old time favorite.

This is our goto place, great pretzel appetizer, salads, burgers, beer ... For whatever reason, they're never that crowded.

If you're looking for the tavern experience in downtown Madison, there's nowhere better than Capital Tap Haus (also known as Wisconsin Brewing Tap Haus). The tables are sticky ("well-lacquered"), the beer is plentiful, and the food is comfortably greasy and truly satisfying. I enjoyed the giant bavarian pretzel, which was truly giant, and gave a standing ovation to their Reuben. Our table service was Johnny-on-the-spot, although it should be noted that it was a slow Monday night. All around, a great spot.

Unfortunately we visited on a Sunday night and they were out of 3 of the items we wanted...AND one of the beers on tap. It does have a very limited food menu. Good ambience. A lot of other readers liked it...and maybe we were just on a bad weekend!!!

I really enjoyed this place. We stopped in before the football game for a couple drinks and apps. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable. We ordered curds, giant pretzel, and fried pickles. YUMMY.
