Reviews

“The cafeteria also makes awesome sandwiches and gigantic chocolate chip cookies.”
“Many cherished bonds are formed here as young and old, students and alumni, congregate day and night to share beer and laughs and to relax in the warm rusticated embrace of this great building.”
“A great place to grab a beer and a sandwich and hang with the cool students of UW.”
Pros
  • good cheap eats with a nice patio and beautiful lake view...
  • It is an historic room, that has been very well -loved over the years...
  • They have a nice kick to them...
  • All of the wraps are good as are the fries...
  • The selection is pretty good and it's fun to hang out at the Rath and play pool, watch a movie or listen to live music ...
Cons
  • Didn't go to UW but everyone tells me that our family's sigil should be a bad ger!
  • So we had to check out the Rat in the heart of bad ger land...
  • Not a bad place to be a student!
  • The rueben was tiny, stale, and tasted awful ...
Service & Staff
  • We had a late breakfast...
  • If you're in from out-of-town, you should stop by and walk through the place, but I know I'll be waiting until after remodeling is done to visit again...
  • The sheer power and aura around this place for ten minutes helped finalize my decision to go to UW-Madison...
  • I guess I'm just not Wisconsin enough, or have been spoiled by too many brats in actual, Germany-bound Ratskellers, but this one always feels vaguely tomb-like despite its service able corn chowder (which I imagine is normally less-than-available beyond the grave...
  • The staff are friendly on serving sizes too...
Food & Drinks
  • The food is pretty decent - largish portion sizes, tasty , but nothing too exotic or well-sourced...
  • The main problem it has right now is that there is no longer any tap beer...
  • I really cannot picture being in the Rathskeller without a pitcher of beer...
  • There are better places to eat, cheaper places to drink , and better places to watch sports, music groups, etc...
  • The food is only ok...
  • One of the stars is for the beer...
  • You can buy a decent ly sized bag of popcorn to go with your pitcher of beer...
Atmosphere
  • It's not the frat-boy douchebag music box that spouted out "Wherewolves of London", "Tempted" and every song on the Bob Marley "Legend" Album every miserable day that I worked in the cafeteria...
  • Only in Wisconsin is the student union heavily influenced by German food , libations, and decor ...
  • The acoustics are horrible and the stage is smack in the middle surrounded by several walls where half of the seats can't see anything plus the place is generally packed just because it's free and not because people actually care to hear the music ...
  • The whole place is all dark wood and murals and arcs of doorways and German decor ating...
Prices
  • Kind of expensive for the portion sizes, but I suppose you are pay ing for convenience...
  • Also, the food is significantly overpriced ...
  • $6 for a brat and fries?
  • I don't care how many free shows this place throws it's not worth it in my opinion...
