Tip Top Tavern

Vintage tavern with unbeatable fish fry, cheese curds, and on-tap beers

Tip Top Tavern is a long-standing pub serving a Friday Night Fish Fry, Sunday morning brunch, and a great selection of pub fare, burgers, and drinks.

On-tap beers are Wisconsin and craft focused. Cocktails and wine are also available, as well as a specialty Sunday morning brunch drink menu that includes Bloody Marys, Mimosas, Peach Bellinis, and a Top of the Morning that features coffee, irish cream liqueur, and a shot of Hellcat Maggie Irish whiskey.

Drinks at Tip Top Tavern are good, but the food is even better with cheese curds, specialty burgers, build-your-own burgers, veggie burgers, brats and Chicago-style all-beef franks, sandwiches, soups, salads, and plenty of pub snacks like kettle chips, onion rings, their popular fried pickles, and more!

Friday Night Fish Fry makes Tip Top Tavern a true Madison destination, featuring fried or baked Canadian walleye or beer battered, fried, or baked North Atlantic cod. Every fish fry is served with Tip Top’s house-made coleslaw, house-made tartar sauce, lemon wedge, and your choice of french fries or baked potato.
