Since 1989, State Street Brats has proudly been a University of Wisconsin tradition. With our famous Red Brats and a great selection of local beer, there’s no place better to cheer on the Badgers on game day. There’s something for everyone on our menu, with plenty of tasty pub food like cheese curds and wings. Our patio is also the perfect place to grab a drink on a sunny afternoon. Whether you’re a current student wanting to grab a bite after class or an alumni in town for the game, we look forward to showing you a good time and serving up good food.

We have 3 reservations two days in a row and they canceled them without telling us and we got there and couldn’t get in for over an hour. There was no compensation or even apology for their inconvenience towards our weekend.

Server was not attentive and had to flag him down multiple times. Did not have silverware for 10 minutes after food arrived.

Thank you so much for coming, we apologize for the poor service, we hate seeing reviews like this. This seems out of character for our restaurant and servers, we will make sure to make the necessary changes to our protocols to correct this mistake. We hope you will join us again soon and give us another chance. Thank you for dining with us!

Great traditional Wisconsin bar, great beer selection on tap as well as canned beers and seltzer’s

Food was amazing for bar food! Cheese curd burger was bomb! Waffle fries were crispy and well cooked

We enjoyed the patio for happy hour and stayed through dinner, great spot for any casual date!

The service at State Street Brats is awful. We made a reservation with them through OpenTable to have a dinner with my family before the day of my wedding, on 9/11/20. They were inexplicably closed, with no sign and no way to get in touch with anyone. This was infuriating because I had several family members from out of town (Louisiana, Georgia, and Arkansas!) and all they wanted was a nice meal together, something very rare for my family. Were they planning on being closed on 9/11? Was anyone going to call us to tell us that the restaurant was closed? I will never return and will turn away everyone I know.
