The Old Fashioned is very Wisconsin and seems to celebrate all that is this state- there is no shortage of meat, beer, and cheese. Which I imagine most natives are probably gaga over. I usually choose the Mac and Cheese..for many reasons. It's got sharp cheddar, sarvecchio, and topped with toasted breadcrumbs. That should be enough reasons. Any number of their sandwiches are also top notch- pulled pork, smoked turkey, build your own burger. Yum. They have some good nightly specials and if they ever aren't stuffed to the gills with locals, it could be a fun after-work spot. It can get pricy but it's high end tavern food and a fantastic location right on the capital square.
I hear they now serve breakfast on the weekdays which I am excited to try- a new adventure for them...and for me!
