Madison: The Greenbush Bar

914 Regent St. , Phone: (608) 257-2874

Reviewed by: Amy from MA, review #3718

When: 2011

A very local hangout, with good pizzas and traditional Italian-American "red sauce" food.

Directions: In the basement of the Italian-American club. (Note that the "No under 21" sign does not apply to kids with parents)

"There's a restaurant here?" asked my husband. On a busy road is the brick Italian Workmen's Club, with a faded sign on the door for the Greenbush Bar. Go downstairs to the basement, and you'll find a crowded room with black ceiling hung with Christmas lights.

Give your name to a waitress, grab a beer from the bar, wait for your table. Lots of grad students, families, and Madison residents come here for the crunchy pizzas, local craft beers, and pastas. We shared a mushroom pizza, and an order of vegetable lasagna. The pizza had a nice char on the bottom and decent quality cheese. The lasagna had fresh spinach, was substantial yet somehow still light and fresh tasting. The appetizers were priced on the somewhat high side, but the pizzas and pastas are reasonable.
