    For fish you could also consider the Nautigal, that's north side of Lake Mendota, nice views and relaxed atmosphere. Little pricey but good food.

    Some honest opinions (I recommend both of these btw)

    steak houses

    I was at Smokeys a few years ago, and it was good, but expensive.
    The decor also changed from college centric to evangelical call it what ever you want.

    Tornado is always good.
    Johnny's Italian Italian Steak House on the west side is good, near the Marrioott, holday Inn, and so forth. The food is rich, but if you pack Depends in your panniers you will be OK.

    For a one time shot to WI, I would go to the "Old Fashioned". Terrific food, and drink. They took recipes from small town taverns, saloons, and restaurants, over the last 50 years and re-produce them-meat, fish, mac and cheese with hungarian sausages, outstanding salads, and I am ready to go.. Ever have mashed potatoes with carmelized apples? My son and I have been there 25 times. By the way, the old fashions are made with Makers Mark Bourbon. It is located down town.

    But you know the drill about drinking and riding so you can choose for yourself.

    Was at Smokeys last fall, it has changed hands. It was the worst steak I have ever had! Not like it use to be. The Tornado near the square was well worth the money and service was excellent. Now Smokey John's the BBQ Joint is hand downs one of the best BBQ spots in the midwest.

    For steaks I go along with Johnny's Italian Steakhouse in Middleton

    If you want to ride out of town, New Glarus has GlarnerStube. German & Swiss foods. New Glarus is a cool little town, but a tourist trap. Also some great secondary roads around there!
