  • The terrace is one of the favorite places in summer. There you can have ice cream and even beer (it's on campus).

  • Food and Drink isn't cheap, but the beer is good. The lines are not short either. Sitting by the water is great and it's a good place to meet and catch up with people. The movie nights and music in the Summer are also a blast. Even though there are a lot of places to sit, it is often hard to find a seat when it's nice out or there are events going on. It's definitely one of those "places to be." This place will be great next year when all the remodeling is complete.
  • It's the terrace! The atmosphere is the best. The beer is good and the food is ok. Great if you want to hangout with friends and enjoy the sunset near the water.
  • Classic Madison Student experience! Get a pricey pitcher and listen to some free live music. They ID people pretty hard these days so I don't recommend buying beer for anyone under age. You will more than likely be caught and the cops are usually there already.
  • Great place to spend a few hours on a hot summer day. Beer is cold, food is good, and there is sometimes live music.
  • Very beautiful and scenic to sit by the lake and eat. The only food available though is fast food - hot dogs, burgers - and beer, which are not exactly cheap. Otherwise, a nice experience. There are ducks that you can feed in the lake, or watch the kayakers and sailboats going by.
