Great Dane Downtown

The original Great Dane Pub is located in the 140 year-old “Fess Hotel” building listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Opened in 1994, the unique space  features a 10 barrel brew house, a stone-walled Rathskellar, semi-private dining area and billiards lounge, along with  a quaint and relaxing courtyard beer garden that receives accolades again and again for Best Outdoor Dining awards in Madison. 

The combination of historic ambiance, award winning beer, crowd-pleasing food and caring, attentive service, has made the downtown Great Dane Pub Madison’s most award-winning restaurant and brewery. We hope you'll visit us often to see and taste what's new.
