  • Absolutely lovely place to see. Spent my first night in town here, as it was a hop skip and a jump away from the dorm on WU campus. Went after a huge thunderstorm, and the air smelled great, was not m...  more »

  • This is what Madison does best. A lovely indoor and outdoor space to sit and enjoy a beer. And a brat of course. They don't have 46oz. cups like they used to, but of course you can always buy by the pitcher. Top notch people watching too, especially when the weather warms up.
  • It's the Terrace. It's the best place to have a beer, on a nice day, in all of Madison. I partially blame it for statewide patio mania. And affordable! Sublime.
  • Best place to hang around in Madison with your friends. Has nice view of Lake Mendota and offers great Ice Cream to enjoy on a hot, summer day.
  • Great place to hang out over the summer. Recently renovated with much improved music stage. Sunsets are really cool over the lake.
  • Beautiful view of the lake, and yeah all around good time for people watching and such. If you are bored on a hot summer day, this is the place to spend that day.
