Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post. The opinions are completely my own.
I often talk about how Madison (where I live) has a plethora of restaurant options, and it does, but sometimes living on one side of town or the other has its downsides. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by the majority of my reviews, I’m much closer to west side eateries that east side. This means that it sometimes takes quite a while for us to eat at a restaurant on the other side of town – even though they might be somewhere we really want to go.
One of these restaurants is The Lazy Oaf. I know many people that love eating there, and go there regularly. We are on the east side of town recently and finally made it over there to eat lunch. The restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere and has a huge menu. There is definitely something for everyone at this place.
For my lunch, I got the Stuffed Grilled Cheese - Blend of Wisconsin Cheese, Roasted Vegetables & Pesto Spread served on Thick Cut Italian White Bread. I actually got it without the roasted vegetables since they said they were already mixed together and they included red peppers which I’m not a fan of. The sandwich was good, very cheesy!
With my sandwich I had a side salad. The salad was alright, but nothing special.
The husband had one of their specials which was the Lobster Nachos. It was chips covered in cheese, tomatoes, green onions, white sauce, lobster and whitefish. He said it was good – but pretty rich. It probably would have been better as an appetizer rather than a meal because the portion size was huge!
Overall the meal was good, but not anything amazing. However, it cost us less than $20! Even though the food wasn’t amazing, it was definitely well worth that price.
Taste: A-, good but not amazing.
Cost: A+, inexpensive for the amount and quality of the food.
Would I go there again? Yeah I think so. There are many other things on the menu that I’d like to try, and I did really like the laid back vibe of the restaurant.
