Our dining is on a first come, first served basis. However, if you have a large party or are planning an event, give us a call and we'll hook you up. 

The Laurel Tavern has been a neighborhood fixture

since the end of the prohibition. The tavern was 

purchased in 1979 by Dianne and Peter Zilley 

and continues to be a favorite gathering spot

for delicious food and drink on the near westside

of Madison, Wisconsin to this day.
