Madison has some great sports bars for sure, but Jonathan’s Grille might be my favorite. Located at Clift Farms in Madison, not only does Jonathan’s have some killer wings, but there are enough TVs in the place to guarantee you won’t miss the game. Plus, pretty much everyone else in the place is there to watch football as well. So don’t be bashful about cheering during the game.

The End Zone

With dozens of TVs, a pretty awesome food menu and fantastic bartenders and service, this is definitely a place to check out on Saturdays and Sundays in the fall.
