Wisconsin’s best football bars

Game day hotspots

Fall means football, and cheering on your team with a roomful of fans makes game day all the more exciting. We’ve put together a list of some of the best places to watch the game—you’ll find fantastic energy as well as food and drinks that will keep you satisfied through the fourth quarter and beyond.

Head to Paul’s Neighborhood Bar in Middleton on game day! Just a short drive from Madison, Paul’s walls sport 14 TVs tuned into the biggest games. Their huge bar is surrounded by sets, so wherever you sit, you’re guaranteed a great view. Come early Sunday morning for their prime rib breakfast that will keep you full ‘til kickoff.

In the Stevens Point Area, Hilltop Pub & Grill is the place to be for the game. A casual atmosphere with an abundance of big screen TVs, you’ll find an unusual addition here – an original beer keg from the Stevens Point Brewery that serves as a doorway to their keg room dining area. They’ve got a long list of cold Wisconsin beers on tap, including several brewed right in the Stevens Point Area – all of which go great with a Packers win!

Bucketheads Sports Bar & Grill in Rhinelander is a great place to grab a bite while you’re cheering on your favorite team. The menu here includes 10 different varieties of burgers and an array of tantalizing appetizers like cheese curds, chicken wings, mushrooms, cauliflower and brownies – all deep fried, alongside great game day drink specials to wash it all down.

In small town Boulder Junction, you’ll find something unique to the Northwoods – a brewpub. Aqualand Ale House serves only carefully selected local, regional and national microbrews on tap with plenty of big screens in sight. A complementary gastropub menu accompanies the craft beer selection, with upscale twists on Northwoods favorites.
