What Makes Us A Madison Original?
Essen Haus, Madison's authentic German restaurant & trinken halle, has been nestled in the historic First Settlement Neighborhood of downtown Madison for over 30 years. In that time, it has grown into a Madison staple that is famous for its traditional German cuisine, steins and 2-liter boots of premium German bier, friendly staff dressed in dirndls & lederhosen, live polka music nightly and plenty of Gemütlichkeit!
