Essen House

German bierhaus serving authentic cuisine and 2 litre boots of bier

Essen Haus is an authentic German restaurant and trinken halle that invites you to take a trip to Germany without ever leaving Madison.

Experience German food, bier, and culture from the time you arrive until the time you say Auf Wiedersehen.

Essen Haus proudly features 16 rotating German tap bier selections (available in half-liter steins, full liter mugs, and the famous 2 liter boot), a wide variety of bottled imports, traditional German entrées, live oompah music, and a friendly staff dressed in classic dirndls and lederhosen.

Enjoy German culture through the food, with a variety of fresh, time-honored dishes like spätzle, schweinebraten, schnitzel, and wursts! Friday Night Fish Fry specials include beer-battered, deep-fried cod, broiled cod, or fried lake perch!
