I stopped at The Badger Tavern with a girlfriend to see what it was like since Tony Franks. The lights were incredibly bright for a bar, especially on a Friday night. The atmosphere stuffy, and purely because of the staff. Not ONE of them smiled the entire 2 hours we were there. We were served a beer at the bar fairly promptly when we got there but then we looked over time and time again after given a menu. It took probably an hour for me to order food. Once getting the food it was great, but again it took forever for someone to inquire if we needed anything long after we were finished. Over all I think the place has a lot of potential to be the warm, welcoming place it once was, but never ever will be if the employees do not smile or acknowledge the patrons outside of asking what they want to drink.
