    Come here at lunch, dinner, late night, or for brunch on the weekend. It's always good and they have something for everyone. Fish tacos are to die for, watch out for the habanero sauce!

    Oh my god! Whomever dreamed up the chocolate and beer flight is a genius! Gorgeous flavors and unbeatable beers! My favorite was the Crop Circle Wheat with the lemony, spicy milk chocolate!

    I always order falafel when I'm here and it's great! If you find yourself here in the summer, the sunken outdoor patio is amazing. Oh and the beer is good too!

    Good beer, and very extensive menu. I've never really been wowed by the food or the service, but no complaints. Check out the downstairs bar if you are looking for an intimate atmosphere.

    The entire menu reads well; it was hard to decide. I went with the Mediterranean plate with salmon. So much food! I was more than satisfied.

    The something planked salmon is amazing, so is the calamari. Didn't try the sandwhich salmon thing but what I had listed above was damn good. The photo is the left overs of my food.. Notice no salmon

    Start with the Cheese & Artichoke Dip (if you're craving more, order the Dane Burger, which comes topped in the dip). Goes great with a Crop Circle Wheat in the summer.

    The cheese curds are alright, but the beer is great and they have pool. Plus the more you drink the better their cheese-curds taste.

    Yummiest meatloaf, with garlic mashed, paired with the German Pilsner. Free pint for dad( me) on Fathers Day. Great (Dane) end to a short vacation.

    Decent beer and food but a great outdoor area. Also have a good number of pool tables and a locker to charge your phone!

    The poutine appetizer is worth the trip alone. Burgers are good, but I'm not a huge fan of the in house beers.

    This is an excellent place to compare factory meat vs. grass-fed. If you go with someone else, order the same burger, one regular, one grass-fed and sample both.

    Fresh brewed beer. Billiards without daiquiri stains. Food served on platters. No wonder the states mandate closing hours, or you’d never leave this place. Start with Peck’s Pilsner, go from there.

    Great food but I wouldn't get the cheese Great Dane they're basically mini mozzarella sticks. Save the calories for the old fashioned cheese curds

    Everything that I sampled was fantastic, but surprisingly my favorite thing was the pretzel bread that came as a side to the mac 'n cheese.

    They always have my favorite Three Olives in stock... Triple Shot Espresso! (Just don't tell the other 20-some flavors) Order it up with cola or in a cocktail with Three Olives Cake.

    For a local, sustainable, grass-fed dinner, get the Sustain-a-burger, or substitute the same patty on to any of their other burger creations.

    What they call the Indian Tandoori Chicken is nowhere close to the actual tandoori chicken of India, but it's still awesome!
