Went here to try out a new place with my girlfriend. Great atmosphere and loved the pool table! Our bartender was Kate and she really knew how to cater to our preferences and taste buds. Fabulous all around, hope to come back soon!

Had cocktails in branded bar. Good friendly service with Kate, who managed to go above and beyond and knew exactly what to get us off the menu. Still my favorite cheese curds in the city. Will be returning!

Once again 'Branded' the bar/restaurant did not disappoint for lunch. As usual, the tempura cheese curds were amazing. My beef dish was tasty and bison burger for my guest was delicious. Our waitress was personable, Irish and adorable. Classic Old fashioned is a must; just...More
