We stopped in to watch a baseball game. We scored seats at the bar with a great view of one of the tvs. There are multiple spaced around the venue. Service was pretty prompt and friendly. They had a decent selection of beers including Surly Furious and Leine's Oktoberfest. Craft beers will run you $4-5 each. The menu is extensive.... More

I've been to the Badger a dozen or so times over the past year. Their burgers are wonderful and always cooked the way we ask - we like them rare, which isn't always the easiest to get at most restaurants. They offer a variety of appetizers that are your typical bar food but very tasty when gathered around a table... More

We went for dinner & drinks & were able to get a seat at the bar even though it was a pretty good crowd. I had a shrimp dinner but it was disappointing as it turned out to be popcorn shrimp. Another in our party had a really good salad, so huge she had to take half of it home... More

Having been disappointed next door....we were hoping for more. My husband and I walked in with me following behind. I was thinking, "It smells like someone just threw up in here? How can the people in here stand it?" My husband continued to walk to the back of the bar and he turned to me and asked, "Does it smell... More

Service is terrible! We sat for 15 minutes with every staffer ignoring us! So we went to the bar to order drinks, bar tender told us to sit and wait for the server. What! When the server FINALLY showed at the table, we received the litany of excuses of why service e is bad (too busy, not my shift, kitchen... More

Great burgers. Special every day is a good value. All you can eat shrimp on Fridays comes with a good cole slaw.

My wife and I have started dropping by the Wild Badger every few weeks for nachos and beer. They have really good multi-colored nachos that can be fixed up the way you like. I like to pair mine with a tall glass of Spotted Cow beer and I am set. Price is reasonable and one serving fills us up. Nachos... More

Nice bar, decent food. Tall blonde bartender very rude and the rest very slow. They are doing you a favor serving drinks. Bad attitude for customer service people working for tips. Some drink while working. Who lets employees drink on the job???

We were there for lunch during a regional dance competition. Food was great lukewarm however service was extremely slow especially at 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. Having a small waitstaff of 2 including the bartender to assist a small crowd didn't really work well. We were not the only customers there since it seemed like there were some "regulars" as...
