This was a recommended restaurant on a few different sites. It is centrally located near the capitol building. We stopped in for a drink, appetizer, and sandwich. All of which were good. Fast service, reasonable price, will return sometime soon.

First off, this might be the best view from any restaurant on the square. The menu here is small-ish, but everything on it is good. The bartenders make drinks the way they should be made, and there is always a good list of tap beer and several choices of good wine. The restaurant tries to use locally sourced ingredients wherever... More

Great service and good food. Food was a little pricey but very good. Great view of State Capitol too. I had the Graze burger and fries for $21, and a beer. The burger was really good!

Had a great lunch. We had to ask for the beet burger but they had it. The specialty drinks were a little too spicy

First time in Madison, and we ended up eating here twice! We didn't know what to expect about the food in WI - we were strangers to fried cheese curds until we sampled this WI fav here, and, loved them! It's easy to see why this casual spot is so popular. With double story windows, during the daytime, it's sunny... More

We ate at Graze for Easter brunch. It was busy, as expected and the wait for a table was 40-45 minutes. When we were called, the hostess said, "Is outside okay?" We said "yes" because we had already waited a while but would have preferred inside due to temperature. It was breezy and cool and not exactly comfortable eating temperature,... More

Came to Graze tonight for our first Graze dinner, a limited edition beer release from Central Waters, and had the ever delicious cheese curds and fries. Dessert was calling next and we tried the "Nutella" bread pudding (no Nutella in it but chocolate hazelnut none the less) which was incredible (almost ordered another!!) and then ordered the Bimibop and took...

We spent the afternoon in Madison. The first destination was the Capitol, but we were starving and wanted to have lunch. As we walked from the parking garage toward the Capitol, we passed Graze. We decided to try it. We were very pleased. My husband had the French dip with a side of fries. Both were delicious. I had the... More

Not the best dining experience in Madison. Although okay at a basic burger, very expensive, loud space and drinks are meh. The best offer is during the farmers market when they offer yummy baked goods without the sticker shock or pretentious attitude.
