Cool place. It was off hours when i was there but looks like a cool place at peak hrs. Good beer selection. And cool cow tables.
Comfy atmosphere with good service. Happy people
Two level sports bar, games inside, patio!
Good food, fun atmosphere
Good times with my girls!
Loved the brats! White > Red
Madison, Wisconsin? State street? Better get some brats - and there’s no place better than state street brats. White? Red? It doesn’t matter, they’re all incredible. Whether you just finished a game or are out partying - this is the food in the mad city! More...
Lekkere curds en burgers
Great place to hangout and drink bartenders was nice..
Cool UWM hangout.
Fun place to drink a beer and grab some food.
State Street brats is and always will be an icon in Madison it's a little bit of cash but it's one of those places you gotta hit if you're running down a foodies bucket list lol.
Great place to go for lunch and dinner.Are you a red or white brat fan go here!Like good food in fun atmosphere here is the place to be!Amazing place to go for after dinner drinks.Note:Can be very busy depending on time of day & is a party bar at night More...
Red brat was relatively tasty. Full condiment bar. Old, wood, rustic feel inside. Outdoor patio with cow statues makes for fun photos. Only issues...Pepsi products (sorry...I'm a lifelong Coke fan) and sticky, morning-after-bar-scene floors. You know the kind I'm talkin' about... More...
Keto, celiac, and vegan friendly. Great atmosphere for dining as well as a fun and popular stop for a night out in Madison.
Fantastic stop for lunch. Brats curds and a cold beer on a hot day
Great selection of beer. Food is a little pricey for what you get. It is good though.
Every time I'm downtown I have to stop in for a brat. Delicious food, great beer selection, excellent service.
valeria de elias
Craft beers, cold drinks, nice menu, great place to meet people have a drink and a bite to eat
A must visit downtown Madison! a great place to watch a wide variety of sports and try Wisconsin beers!
Cool atmosphere and food
This place never changes - I love it so much! Dancing upstairs all night!
One of the great downtown bars
Great lounge. Very comfortable and good food. Tasty tasty panna cotta.
Heather Lynn Harris
It is an interesting sports bar without the smoking. Wide variety of beers to choose from. And, you get to request what goes on your brat. Plus a nice variety of condiments for your food. Got a Wisconsin 3 Cheese Burger More...
This was a nice casual place, and great for our party of 9. Nice cold beverages on a hot summer day!
Best in State Brats
I had the brat and burger and my girlfriend had the the steak sandwich and both were delicious other than the waffle fries being cold it was a good experience
Rib eye tastes exactly as it did fifty years ago...great!
Always a fun place to be, the staff are also awesome!
Nice place great service and staff. Lots of gnats on the patio
State street beats is a Madison icon. Fun on game days but nice anytime. Great Wisonsin brats.
Brats meh. Prices goodEDIT: I suppose this wasn't very descriptive. I thought the Red Brat was a little dry, perhaps overcooked and not great flavor. Perhaps I don't like that style of brat as much. Like I said, prices were very reasonable, with different options for sandwich only, fries, curds, steak and brat, etc. etc. Visiting Madison (and Wisconsin) for the first time I suppose I just had much higher expectations. We stopped back in a couple days later to buy some t-shirts and the guy who helped us was great so I can definitely vouch for their good service. However, my girlfriend's dad grilled out on the 4th and I'm sorry to say but those brats were much better. So if you are looking for a cool place to get a bite to eat and some great deals on beer, look no further, but I wouldn't suggest it if your main mission is to find a great brat. More...
Thought this was a tourist trap, but the beer and brats were pretty good. Pleasantly surprised.
A home away from home. The bratburger is amazing. And pair with Moon Man.
Good fast casual
A Madison staple for college bars. The brats are great and dont miss out on the waffle fries, some of the best I've ever had!
Good local sports bar with a fun college town feel. The red braut with cheese was good and they have a whole bar of toppings to make it your own. I'm heading back to Madison in September and I'll definitely be going back in. More...
Good food. Cheap beet
Burgers we're good, but I didn't care for the red brat.
Ms. Darleen Toles
nice like out side
still love this place still good even after college the red brat! mmmm!
Lunch is all about the beer, brats and fried curds. Hasn't changed over the years.
Classic Madison stop. Love it as a student and still do.
Excellent brats, great service, great location!
Great food & fun staff!
Brat was good, cheese curds were awesome.
I love Brats, all shapes and flavors here. Very cool staff.
Unmatched service, authentic and well-made Wisconsin food, LGBTQ+ friendly, safe for women (they banned a creep when i mentioned being uncomfortable after he followed me around the bar leering a few times), excellent specials, family friendly before 8pm, fun trivia nights, great music. One of my favorite Madison haunts. Stop thinking about it and just go!! More...
Get a boot. Don't set it down. The second to last person to drink from the boot buys the next boot. That's all you need to know about brats.
I'm pretty sure we had a good time.
Good lunch place. Fantastic bratwurst!
Tough to get brats and beer wrong
Pet friendly outdoor
I luved it great place too meet even buisness wise.....
Brat burger.... Not a burger made from a brat. A split brat on a burger. What a great idea
Great place for a quick beer and something to eat. Bartenders are super nice and you can’t beat the prices.
Nice place, but they want 2 forms of ID to get in.
They have amazing food!
Cool atmosphere, great beer
Classic downtown madison.
Red Brat, Beer and Curds is a true Wisconsin meal.
Fun atmosphere. Great food!
I am a vegetarian so it was really nice to see that they had the Beyond meat Burger and Beyond meat brat
Always a must if your on State Street!
Great food ,Friendly Bartenders!
Upstairs is pretty sweet, I was here with a buddy on a Saturday afternoon and had 2 projectors shared between less than 10 people.
The best brats in the country, in the best college town. Never miss a chance to check in here while in Madison. Go, Badgers!
It was great! There were games for the table that the kids could play with (or nastalgic adults). The food was cheap and good. Family of five was only $35 for everyone to eat plus a beer and two juices. My husband is a super picky burger eater and said the curd burger was delicious. Everyone was super friendly and being in the college hub, didn't seem annoyed by the kids and actually liked interacting with them. We didn't feel like we were a burden, like most places (and their patrons) make you feel when you bring small kids out. More...
Very good. Awesome steak sandwich
Love the brats!
Nicole St. Clair
Great atmosphere... didnt get chance to try the food.
Great place for brats!!!
Great if your in a group
Beer and brats!!! You can't go wrong
Brats is always a good time and you can’t beat the deal on Thursdays. $2 singles and $3 doubles (rail vodka, yes, but cmon, that’s a steal). Only reason I knocked it down a star is an incident that happened a couple weeks back. A friend of mine who’s been 21 since September was almost denied with a Wisconsin Real ID, something that you can get into Canada with but apparently isn’t good enough for bouncers with minimal training More...
It's a family tradition to stop in and have a beer and a brat when we are in town and downtown.
Brat was very good, burger and chicken sandwich was just a touch overcooked
Best brats in Madison!
Love this place!
Nice place.. very laid back
Yummy in my tummy
Excellent red brats. Fun atmosphere. Every time I get to Madison.
Amazing food and even better customer service! Uber eats messed up my delivery and these guys went above and beyond to fix it. Thank you! I will be coming back. I think I found my new favorite burger in Madison. More...
Awesome brats, friendly service.
should of had the upstairs bar open earlier
Always a blast!
Many good memories here, free popcorn is nice. Used to be beer boot Wednesday's ($7 for boot of spotted cow)
Sexy bartenders like omg
Iconic and delicious. If you are on State Street and want the full Gameday Experience, this is a must.
Cheap and tasty food and beers.
I personally prefer different atmospheres for dining or drinking (either quiet, quirky, colorful or otherwise distinctive), but for people who enjoy the usual moderately lively, warm, familiar bar kind of feel, it's solid. Beers, brats, blokes and darts! Trivia here could be fun if you bring your familiar crew. I'm probably just a bit too odd/anxious to feel at ease with this particular vibe. Enjoyed the beers I tried though! More...
Friendly staff, university style pub with menu to match. Greasy but tasty cheese curds with loads of choices for sauces. Known for their brat, not my kind of sausage but satisfying. Prices were fantastic though, great value for students. Very satisfying meal. More...
A Madison must see when on State Street. The outdoor garden is packed in warmer months, and the indoors is decorated in UW colors.
Good curd burg
Great drinks and good specials
Red brats rock!!!
Ben From Gulf City
I go here with my uncle every year. Really good food
Red brat is very good
Decent burgers and toppings, decent selection of brews, but they started shutting down early and it felt uncomfortable.
Loud sports bar packed with badger fans.
Fantastic brats, good atmosphere. Two floors, outdoor seating.
Old school setting, great vibe and awesome Brats!
Always fantastic food whenever I go. Usually pretty packed and the service isnt slow. They're my favorite restaurant in Wisconsin and I make sure I stop by every time I come up
I got drunk. It was good time
Love this place with your friends
Fun sports bar
I'm not going to lie, when you drop your first born and only child bat college you are going to need yourself an ice cold beer. After writing the tuition check (4x to cost of my first car) we ambled over to the State Street to soothe our frazzled nerves. The patio looked inviting, so we went in. First, the walk up ordering is genius. The staff was friendly and made us wiser as to the origin story of the red brat. The mustard selection alone at the condiments bar was enough to make a grown man weep. We had the waffle fries and two cold . For a split second in time, life was normal and good. And then my friends we walked back to campus, wrapped up some things and drove crying home. More...
Steak sandwich was very tasty. Counter person was pleasant and helpful.
The best brats everever!!!!
When you go to State Street Brats you seat yourself anywhere you like, there are two floors to the place to sit which I nice to have because it is usually pretty busy, once you find a seat a waiter will not come up to you because the ordering there is a self ordering system which was confusing for the first time being there. While waiting for food there is a popcorn machine to help yourself to as a little appetizer.State Street Brats do not just have brats on their menu, they have burgers, and chicken sandwiches as well. They have a good tap selection of beer including some madison micro-brews. The food there is great and is highly recommend. More...
Really good food and service
Iconic Madison eatery-casual, fun crowd. Great place to celebrate a Badger win! Red brat basket, waffle fries and a Spotted Cow...yum!
Fun college bar.
Good food, good price
Always the best brats in Madison
Great drink deals food is mediocre
Awesome food and a fun atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!!
I know it's a tourist place but I don't care. I love the food in this place and will continue to visit every time I'm in Madison. The Brats are to kill for and the condiment bar has everything you would ever need. Remember to order the local beer "Spotted Cow." More...
The ribeye steak sandwich was very tasty.
Wonderful nostalgia, even with highly priced food.
If you like a good brat, this is where to get one
Yes good place
Great food and drinks near Univ of Wisc in Madison. Affordable prices with a family atmosphere.
Great grub with awesome service. Fun without breaking the bank.
This is your typical college bar but with better food. We came around brunch (for the bottomless mimosas!) and had a great time with the staff. They obviously have great brats, but their burgers are what will make us come back. Highly recommend the Mac n cheese burger! More...
Awesome pub. Staff was good, beer was cheap, food was solid.
Local landmark love the red brats
Chicken was cold when it came out, but was so hungry it didn't matter, later ordered a smoked brat and it was delicious! Overall good experience!
A long time classic. Great food great atmospheare great history
Great bar to visit in Madison. They offer a good variety of beers. Sometimes the service people play a game and if you are lucky you can get a discount on the purchased drinks. There is a possibility to sit outside as well. Even though i didn't try for myself, the food also looked good. More...
Great place to grab brats in Madison.
Loved the place
Awesome place and the cheese curds are amazing!!
Great place to sit on the deck and people watch. Good food and drink specials.
Enjoyed the food & atmosphere on Mad Town!
Great place, guy behind the bar was very nice.
College bar with cheap brats and beer. Nice little beer garden on the side.
Great place, great atmosphere, iconic UW-Madison. Loved the red brat and Octoberfest.
The Owners & their Team are outstanding people! The food is actually legendary! It’s time for more Brats!
A Madison classic but as has dropped quality for example the condiment bar was almost empty and at a time when it was not very busy. However, they do employ many students which is a plus. More...
The place is a must stop, the red brats are great and so is the beer selection. I stop every time I'm in Madison. Never been disappointed.
Always great service, grade A classic Wisconsin food, and a wide variety of beers. The bottom level has a patio and calm seating but the upstairs has a dance floor and more wild atmosphere so there is a place for everyone! Highly recommend. (Some cute bartenders too) More...
Good food and a great place to people watch.
Loved the cheese curds
Quick service and really good brats. If you're really hungry, order two; they are smallish. The tap selection has something for everyone, with a tilt toward seasonal brews.
Simply a must stop!
Robert D Hosken
Good food, but the place is noisy.
Amy Jo Timm
Awesome service and food
Good curds burger
Service was slow and you had to go to the bar to get it they did not come to your table
I love brats. I have stop here every time I get back to Madison. My favorite place for brats.
Not to bad
Beer, college kids and some brats!
Nice bar with good food and outdoor seating
Awesome location and atmosphere. A State Street staple!
A Madison favorite for a reason
Red brat times two = heart that loves you
I visit here at least twice every trip here. Great beer selection and goodbbrats and curds.
Great place before and after the game
Hands down the best brats I have had. Even have the famous beer boots.
Awesome food, good beer selection. A great place to watch the game.
Dylan is the best worker in the entire resturaunt, he is single-handedly keeping it alive!
Loud, college crowd. Decent beer list. Decent food. Perfect for game days.
Amazing food and the deals are insanely good. You can’t go wrong with this place
Fun downtown atmosphere and great for game days for any sport.
Best place to go to watch Badger Games
The place is pretty nice not as bad as I remember.
Good food, great atmosphere, service was great.
Great food and great view of the games. Even when waiting in line there are Tv's in the walls and floor so you don't miss anything.
Nice bar wasn't to busy when we were there.
Awesome food great special
Nothing like some grub and a Spotted Cow here on gameday! Will be coming back this Fall!
Went a little early on Football Saturday, got a table! Great service!! Food was excellent, bar was jam packed but it was still easy to get drinks! Well done! We will be back!
Delicious food. Awesome Wisconsin theme place. Very loud inside. Beer selection was good, service was quick and friendly. Will definitely visit again and recommend.
Always a great place to have a drink.
Have to try the red brat. A must when visiting Madison WI.
Love the burgers and cheese curds.
I love coming to State Street Brats! When I come home to Madison to visit I have to get my fix of brats and beer!
Great atmosphere.. loved it
Ahhh the memories made between those hallowed walls....and the food is Wisconsin gold!
Came in for a bloody Mary and brat and was quite impressed!
Great overall atmosphere and nice place to eat! The workers provided great service and were all very nice as well! Dylan (I'm pretty sure his name was) did a terrific job, I've heard from several people that he's an excellent worker as well as very friendly/polite! I hope he's getting paid well-enough for the job he's doing! I had a very enjoyable experience here and will definitely be back in the future for sure! More...
Iconic sports bar in Madison. Great for watching the Badgers or hanging out!
Such a fun place to stop in and grab a bit to eat. Excellent food
Let me know if you find the quarter I dropped there.
Excellent and iconic place to be in Mad-town
I had a great burger and beer! Thank you
This place is a classic!
Visited here each time I've been in madison. I feel a bit of place with the younger crowd that seems to usually fill the place but I've found simple yet delicious food is worth taking a night to try if your in town for a few days. I've never had anything but exceptional service from the staff on each visit. More...
Great food fun place
Good service, great food, and drinks...of course.
Ian M. Fraser
A regular 'end of Institute week' experience. Always great
State Street Brats is my goto bar for good bar food and drinks. Plenty of TVs to watch and game. Staff is always very helpful. Wonderful selections of beers.
I enjoy coming here and sitting outside by the cows to people watch. Food is good, nothing super special but if you've never had a brat burger - give it a shot! Drinks are moderately priced. I'd recommend not going after 8pm if you have anyone under 21 in your party, it can get a little rowdy at night or on game days! More...
Fun place to stop.
Great college town environment, kids of TVs and seating. Did not eat here but the drinks are very reasonably priced and a fun atmosphere. Free WiFi.
Today was quiet and relaxing Appreciated the sports TVs. Food was delicious, very fresh. Fries were Hot (temp)! Nice lunch. Will come again soon.
Good food for crowd
Wonderful staff and atmosphere. The brat was fantastic with great beer flavor. Do not forget about the cheese curds with garlic sauce.
Fun time good brats, cold beer
Great food and beverages, outdoor seating and TV's with Wisconsin sports inside and out.
Great deals great place to party
Scott and Tracy Zietlow
Best brats are sold here. Other food is excellent as well. Great place to watch a game and grab a bite to eat. Bartenders are helpful and energetic.
Great stop before a UW Hockey game.
Great food, fun place to drink
Bratwurst served with all you can carry condiments, inexpensive beer, convenient location.
Arik Van Asten
Lots of seats for games, good specials on weeknights. A Madison classic
Lot of fun!
Good prices, good atmosphere
This is the best place downtown to catch a Badgers game. The beer and food are cheap and the crowd is fun! Be sure to check out the patio is the summer.
Ask for a Red Brat, the way they were done back in the 50's & 60's... Lots of other great items on the menu.
Good place to hangout
Specially Good for game days
Great food check it out!
Decent bar food, awesome game day atmosphere.
Great burgers with a condiment bar
I came here with my sister and my best friend for a Harry Potter trivia event. The food was ok, I was a little disappointed in the amount of onion straws on my burger. The fries were amazing. And the trivia was a blast! Such a fun night. More...
Jake Vande Walle
A Madison classic. Doesn't get any better. Brats, burgers, beer, and cheese curds, that's all you really need to know. 10/10 would recommend.
best brat ive ever had! its in an area that its best to walk to from several blocks away - streets block car traffic - like a pedestrian mall.nice craft brew selection
Interesting bar. Quite dark even during the day, but they do have outdoor seating. Good beer list with very friendly bartenders. There was no seats around the bar when we were there, but there is ample seating around the bar. Nice clean bathrooms. Interesting condiment bar area to provide you with all your brat customizing needs. Convienient location, but definitely has the ability of getting busy and crowded (which makes no seats around the bar quite convinient for ordering. More...
Great spot for a quick bite and great beer selection!
On the weekends there are longer lines to get to the second story dance floor. Decent Drink prices. There is a message board on the TVs that is fun to send texts to.
Good bar with many options for beers and fast foods
A Madison college town classic.
Great beer and great brats!!!
Awesome atmosphere amazing brats, a must visit for anyone in madison
Amazing Friday fish fry, my favorite spot.
Good food. Lively crowd.
Love the food, and the service!!!
Great brats, wings, and burgers. Vast draft selection. Very cool atmosphere. Awesome location on State Street. I don't like that there is no table service.
Ian Van Gilder
Madison is dope. So is this.
Popular hang out
Cool place. I'm sure it gets quite crazy at night and on game days. Was there for lunch on a Wednesday and there were folks already getting it going.
My cheddar cheese red brat and side of cheese curds were delicious!
This place is my favorite spot in Madison. The atmosphere is A+ and the brats are even better. Nothing more authentic than this place and the crowd is a blast... particularly on game days!
An institution. Get the red bratwurst.
Very delicious food, and great drink selection. Younger college crowd.
Great qiuck lunch
Low prices. The monkeys are fun. Not super crowded
State Street Brats definitely is a case of taking the good with the bad. At its best, it can be great; at its worst, it can be really bad.First of all, one of my favorite lunches in Madison is grabbing a burger or a white brat with waffle fries. Their burgers are substantial and juicy. They and the white brats are served on fairly airy and light buns (which I prefer), and their condiment bar has just about any topping you can think of to adorn your sandwich.A1? Barbecue sauce? Hot sauce? Every manner of spicy mustard? No problem! Load up and turn that burger into a beef salad!On the drink side of things, go for the Rose Bowl, which is an amorphous cherry-berry flavored concoction that'll have you flat on your face after a few of them if you are not careful.The only cons are that it can be murderously crowded before and after Badger games or during prime night life hours. The other is that fisticuffs sometimes break out. My sister was brutally assaulted in the women's bathroom here. Ultimately that is more of a City of Madison PD problem than a Brats problem, as the staff handled the incident better than the cops did.Overall, I've had some great times here, including winning a Wisconsin shaped Point Beer raft in a raffle when partaking of cheap pitchers of beer on a Wednesday night. We blew it up while walking down the street to our next destination. More...
Good drinks, great music!!!
A madison classic. If you aren't from around here you might not get it.
Large venue, great place to start your evening. Good prices
My first time in. Loved it. Awesome atmosphere/ staff and good food
Cheap meat in tube form and even cheaper drinks. A Wisconsin classic and a staple for every visit you make to Madison, WI!
College bar scene central but its a lot of fun
Legen.......wait for it......dairy!!!
Great atmosphere and good daily specials.
$5 lunch specials. Well worth it.
Awesome brats, bloodies, and outdoor seating
Bartenders were very nice.
It's the BratBEST! HA! What a day!
I had a great time and the food was good.
Tasty brats!! It's right in the name and is exactly true. They also have an outstanding condiments bar with every topping and sauce you can imagine. The french fries were so good that I'm hungry for them again just writing this review. And the location near the capital in Madison was great! More...
Top notch brats and beer deals. Burgers are iffy, but it's a very fun place to catch a UW game of any sort or just sit outside and enjoy the weather.
Great Madison place - good fun and fun atmosphere.
Semi strange ordering protocol, but amazing food and service and atmosphere otherwise!
Love this place, the drinks were great and they had plenty of options. The decor is that of what you would want in a college city. Definitely would recommend!
This place is a Madison tradition. I wish I could go back to the mid 90's and see what this place was like, or at least what the crowd was like. It still has a very 90's feel. Overall this place is great. More...
Foods kinda great. Still needs lower prices. Taste is competitive for downtown.
Good food and beer! Historic place of State Street
Stop in and grab something to eat before a badger game. Stop back after hours for drinks and dancing.
One of my favorite places to eat. Great food and great atmosphere. Very family friendly (during certain hours). We stop in every time we're in town.
The food is pretty good and they have plenty of drink options. Nice place to watch the game. The outdoor area is a little small, but it's nice they have it. It gets really packed when school is in session. The upstairs is crazy and packed too when school is in. More...
College style bar but does in fact have great brats and an awesome selection of mustards and other toppings.
OK bar food, but great atmosphere and service. Dance floor on the second level is always a good time when its open and the outdoor seating has a good mood. They let you take glass outside too More...
The total brat experience. Stop in on a college game weekend! What a riot! Love this place!
Without its unique seating area on the main floor, State Street Brats would probably be 4 stars at best. As the name suggests, they do brats, burgers, fries, cheese curds, and not a whole lot else. But they make what they make, and have a condiment bar if you choose to go to town.The reason the seating area is so important is two-fold. One, instead of ordinary tables in the center, they have island bars. These are great for sitting and conversing, but if you have a larger crowd, it is not awkward to stand next to. With all the TVs on the wall, it's a great game day place.But even on Friday or Saturday nights, the dance floor and main alcohol bar are on the second floor, so you can go up there and party if you want, but you can stay on the first floor and drink casually if that is your thing (it is mine). More...
Shhh... don't tell my host that I'm a little disappointed this is where she choose to take me for lunch on my first trip to Maddison! The Brats are really not great, I got the Red Brat that 'Alumni Love' and I've had better brats at a tailgate! Brat had no extraordinary flavor and the bun was blah.Though I did love the decor in this bar, the beer selection, the mustard/condiments bar, the plethora of tv's and the nice nice people! I can see how this would be a fun place to come as a college student! More...
ONE OF MY MAIN HOT SPOTS TO GO TO WHEN I SEEK TO RELAX AN ENJOY MY MADISON CITY
