“Where Wisconsin is King!”

Inspired by the traditions of Wisconsin taverns and supper clubs, The Old Fashioned exists to pay tribute to the foods and spirits that make our state famous.Here, that means so much more than beers, brats, and cheese. Don't worry, we take all those things very seriously, but we're equally committed to preserving the unique heritage that defines our way of life. When you walk through our doors, you'll not only experience what Wisconsin was, you’ll taste what it always will be.

Overall an excellent experience. The atmosphere was fun and nostalgic. It was loud enough that out did not matter if the kids were a little noisy but still easy to carry on a conversation. The cheese curds were excellent. The beer cheese soup was delicious. Everyone's meal was definitely above average. I was a little jealous of the grilled cheese my daughter had and realized why so many adults in the restaurant were ordering the same. The only problem, which is not horrible, was the poor shape of the tables. Both needed repair and wobbled constantly throughout the meal. But as I said the entire experience was very good. Very reasonable prices as well.

If you want a great introduction to Wisconsin, look no further. Their menu is always featuring rotating specials but the result is the same... Cheese, beer, and meat put together in a way that makes your mouth water. My pick for the first place you should go when you hit town.

We stopped here for beer and cheese curds. They were delicious and there were plenty of beers from across the state to choose from. It was a good introduction to Wisconsin.

We were just traveling through town and stopped here for some cheese curds, a burger, and a beer. We heard this was the place to go and it was good advice. A great first taste of Wisconsin for us!

Austin nailed it, this is a great intro to Wisconsin and is always a good time in Madison. Usually pretty busy (hour and half wait on a Saturday night) so plan accordingly. You can always get an old fashioned at the large bar while you wait for a table.
