  • Overcrowded and service is equivalent to an overcrowded fair, food is the same. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.

  • Beautiful on a nice late summer sunny day. Got a beer and sat and watched the boats on the lake. UW students are so lucky to have this!

  • It is a really nice lakefront place. Lots of indoor and outdoor seating. They had several places to buy really good ice cream, brats snack food and beer. The outdoor lighting makes the terrace beautiful at night. My grandkids loved the place, especially the ice cream.
  • Truly unique spot for any college campus. Attracts many non students. They had open mic on the Wednesday eve I was here. Many many seating spots outside with their colorful chairs and tables.
  • Love this when I first visited Madison. Very colorful and has a very relaxing ambience. Was looking at the lake a lot. Many restaurant around and they have nice a ice cream store.
  • Frankly, I don’t know too many places better during summer time than the terrace. A pitcher and beer and Babcock ice cream are must. The place is even better when there is live music.
  • Very envious of UW-Madison students, there are countless activities and sports that can be done here, especially water sports. I heard that the chairs here are so popular that they keep getting lost.
