Hours of Operation
Great Dane Eastside
The safety of our staff and community are our top priorities. We look forward to celebrating our communal revival when we are on the other end of this unprecedented challenge.
The newest Great Dane Pub, opened in November 2010, is the drinking and dining destination that Madison’s east side has been craving! Located at Grandview Commons, in the building that formerly housed the Cloud 9 restaurant and Jovian Tap Haus, the Great Dane Pub-Eastside offers the full, awesome Great Dane food menu and at least 10 Dane beers on tap at all times. The remodeled ground floor space includes a two-sided bar, six TVs, ample booth seating, a pool table, shuffleboard, darts and more! The elegant second-story dining area features panoramic views of Lake Monona, Lake Mendota, the State Capitol and downtown Madison from nearly every table. In the warm weather season, guests can drink and dine on their choice of two patios and look for special event cook-outs in Grandview Common’s shared outdoor space.
Our Private Dining Room features large windows with Southeast exposure. Perfect for rehearsal dinners, cocktail parties, and holiday events. Brand new state of the art projection screen, projector, and a/v capabilities make it an ideal spot for business functions. This room seats up to 100 and can be divided into 2 smaller spaces. The smaller section can seat up to 25 with the larger area accommodating up to 50 guests. Both areas have access to The new Capitol View Bar! So whether you are part of the neighborhood or you are simply passing through, stop in and see why the Great Dane Pub is America’s quintessential brewery-restaurant company!
Subj: A note from our president about COVID-19
As of today (3/16), all Madison-area Danes will be closed until further notice.
The safety of our staff and community are our top priorities. Staying open would, unfortunately, go against these values. We look forward to celebrating our communal revival when we are on the other end of this unprecedented challenge.

Dear Valued Great Dane Guests,
As coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, I want to personally communicate that The Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company pledges to be a conscious community member and put the health of our staff and guests above any financial considerations.
The effort to slow the spread of the virus will call for sacrifices from everyone. At this time, the Great Dane is adopting best practices to keep our Pubs as safe and as enjoyable as possible.
What we’re doing
While our hygiene standards have and always will remain high, we’re emphasizing and retraining employees in several areas that include:
- Discarding paper menus after one use
- Seating customers farther apart, leaving tables vacant between guests
- Use of single-serve condiments/single-use condiments upon request
- All cardboard drink coasters removed from pubs
- Proper handwashing and increased frequency
- Regular/frequent cleaning of common areas and surfaces
- Increased testing of sanitation and dishwashing equipment
- Increase in available hand sanitizer and wipes
- What you can do
I certainly understand some of our customers may prefer to avoid social contact at this time. For that reason:
- All Madison-area Great Dane locations offer delivery from EatStreet if you prefer to have your food delivered.
- Carryout remains available.
In the coming days and weeks, we may have to halt in-store dining and pivot to take-out and delivery modes of business only, or even temporarily shut down one or more of our Pubs. The best way to keep track of what is happening at your favorite Great Dane is to check our website or a particular Pub’s Facebook page.
I thank you for your patronage of the Great Dane and for your understanding of the CRITICAL need to slow the spread of the virus so that we do not overwhelm our local health care system. I look forward to celebrating our communal revival when we are on the other end of this unprecedented challenge.
Cheers and Prayers,
President, Great Dane Pub & Brewing Company
