“I was on vacation in Madison from Columbus, and so it was my first time at the Laurel Tavern. My friends, who live in Madison, promised it was great and they were right. Great atmosphere, very fun and good appetizers, too.”    Glen L.


“It's like the Madison version of Cheers, but you don't have to be a local to enjoy the great menu. 

Stop in sometime for drinks and dinner!”   Molly D.


“Easily the best place to watch a Packer game in this town. The mural is a beautiful tribute to Monroe Street landmarks,

and there's a roaring fireplace in the dining room... the atmosphere is a welcome contrast to places like the Old Fashioned -

where the Old Fashioned is full of "ironic" old school Wisconsin decor, The Laurel has it authentically.”   Kate T.
