  • Worst Concessions EVER!!! I have never experienced such poor concessions at a sporting event. I went to get food twice during the game, stood in line for more than 30 minutes each time. That is RIDICULOUS! The staff seemed to have no clue as to what they are doing. There appeared to be about 15 people working behind the counter, nobody was talking to each other, and mass chaos was on full display. It should not take long to throw hot dogs/brats on a bun, or a hamburger on a bun considering the customers do all of the toppings themselves! Seriously, the food should be FLYING out of the concession stand instead of people waiting 15 minutes to order, only to then go stand in another line for 15+ minutes to get their food. On top of the slowness, the food was AWFUL! And, the staff didn't even know what they were making. I had way over cooked/reheated cheese curds, and the beer cheese brat with beer onions was a JOKE! The description of the beer cheese brat is as follows: A brat 'smothered' with beer cheese and topped with 'grilled onions' that have been braised in beer. What did I get? I got a brat on an old, dry bun with about a spoonful of beer cheese on it - no onions. When I asked about the onions, the staff brought out plain, uncooked, white chopped onions and put about a tablespoons worth on my bun. The problem was, I saw them do the SAME EXACT thing to another gentlemen during my first visit to the concession stand - no onions, when he asked, they topped it with chopped, raw, white onions. It's like the staff doesn't even know what they are preparing or how to prepare it. Thai Bacon on a Stick? Awesome - yummy - no stick! And, in the condiments area there is no brat mustard despite the fact that the ballpark serves BRATS!!! I enjoyed the game, and some of the other concession areas like the nacho bar and the bbq joint do a much better job. But, if you're looking for good traditional ballpark food - save yourself about $20 by skipping the concessions at a Mallards game and getting something outside of the ballpark before and/or after the game. At this point I think the ballpark is doing the fan base a disservice by even having a concession stand run so poorly. They should just close it down. Bottom line summary - food prices are too high for what you get, service is extremely slow, service accuracy on delivering what was ordered is below poor, looking up at dismal. I feel I got bait n switched by what was advertised on the menu versus what showed up! Sorry Mallards Concession team, you need to step it up big time. You are embarrassing yourselves.
  • Best local baseball team! Games are a lot of fun for the whole family. The Duck Blind is a great option if you're able to take advantage of the all you can eat or drink. The Blind is usually packed though, so getting a seat can be difficult.
  • Best Madison area baseball environment. Fun for everyone even those that aren't avid baseball fans.
  • Prices for tickets, beer and food all went up again this summer. Unlike professional baseball, including nearby Beloit and Appleton MLB farm teams, the Mallards do not pay any of the players. They should pass those cost savings into lower ticket, beer and food costs. if were not going to have a professional team, let's at least make the prices reasonable. I was at the game on 6/1/17, and there were double digits in errors (although many were not counted). Sometimes balls were overthrown two times in the same play, and once it happened in between hitters as infield tossed the ball around. This is entertaining in a Bad-News-Bears kind of way, but not in a 'Baseball like it outta be' kind of way. Do not expect a high level of play, and because the team players switch every year, it's hard to get too invested as a fan. Madison deserves to have baseball that includes future and past MLB players. This level of ball largely does not. There are festivals and free music options virtually every night of Summer across Madison, and we do not have to pay $6.50 for a beer or $7 for a shot glass of wine. Or even buy a ticket. If owners refuse to become a MLB farm team, the smartest thing they could do is shave 50 cents off all the prices, and hold it there next year. Otherwise, people will find other things to do.

  • Nice little park for baseball. However, as is typical these days at sports venues the noise levels between pitches, between batters and between innings is what keeps me from going to more games. Does anyone running these operations have a brain? Why does it have to be so loud? I feel sorry for the people who live in the apartments behind the stadium,
