Tried this place after the Chargers/Packers game. Showed up around 8pm and had to wait about an hour, even though there were a bunch of open tables. Tried several of the beers while waiting; all of them were above average. This place is in an old converted train station, and the trains still rumble by while you’re eating. Service was friendly but slow and the food was mediocre. Fun place.
Very cool location in an old train station, reminiscent of Flossmoor in the Chicago area.
MId-week lunch hour was bumrushed, a big group had come in earlier, but our friends valiantly held a booth near the bar for us. Lots of cool framed historical memorabilia, train and football related mostly, with some local history as well.
Service was quick despite the unexpected crowd, and didn’t feel rushed. They had over a dozen beers on tap, and I took it upon myself to sample them all. Highlights were Green 19, Schwarz, Alt, and Berliner. Over the years i’ve tried a few of their beers at festivals and at the Old Fashioned in Madison, a fine institution dedicated to Wisconsin beer.
Food wise, the Noble Pig was an excellent choice, basically a pork overdose on a pretzel bun. The flatbread I tried was a nice lighter option as well. Thanks to Bison for lunch!
