Great Dane Hilldale
The third Great Dane Pub is one of the key attractions of the famous remodeled Hilldale Mall on Madison’s near west side. The Great Dane at Hilldale is located across the street from the AMC Dine-in Cinema complex. The Hilldale Great Dane features several small dining areas, including a private room for up to twenty guests and a one-table VIP room. Two gas fireplaces make the Pub cozy in winter, while the two patios are perfect for summer chilling. For your preferred drinking atmosphere, choose from the gracefully curved bar in the main barroom or the three-sided pool hall bar- great for people watching and viewing our fully functional brewery!
All Madison-area Danes will be closed until further notice.
The safety of our staff and community are our top priorities. Staying open would, unfortunately, go against these values. We look forward to celebrating our communal revival when we are on the other end of this unprecedented challenge.
- Eliot Butler, President, Great Dane Pub & Brewing Co.
As coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, I want to personally communicate that The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company pledges to be a conscious community member and put the health of our staff and guests above any financial considerations.
The effort to slow the spread of the virus will call for sacrifices from everyone. At this time, the Great Dane is adopting best practices to keep our Pubs as safe and as enjoyable as possible.
What we’re doing
- While our hygiene standards have and always will remain high, we’re emphasizing and retraining employees in several areas that include:
- Discarding paper menus after one use
- Seating customers farther apart, leaving tables vacant between guests
- Use of single-serve condiments/single-use condiments upon request
- All cardboard drink coasters removed from pubs
- Proper handwashing and increased frequency
- Regular/frequent cleaning of common areas and surfaces
- Increased testing of sanitation and dishwashing equipment
- Increase in available hand sanitizer and wipes
What you can do
I certainly understand some of our customers may prefer to avoid social contact at this time. For that reason:
All Madison-area Great Dane locations offer delivery from Eatstreet if you prefer to have your food delivered.
Carryout remains available.
In the coming days and weeks, we may have to halt in-store dining and pivot to take-out and delivery modes of business only, or even temporarily shut down one or more of our Pubs. The best way to keep track of what is happening at your favorite Great Dane is to check our website or a particular Pub’s Facebook page.
I thank you for your patronage of the Great Dane and for your understanding of the CRITICAL need to slow the spread of the virus so that we do not overwhelm our local health care system. I look forward to celebrating our communal revival when we are on the other end of this unprecedented challenge.
Cheers and Prayers,
President, Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company
