The menu at Essen Haus German Restaurant in Madison, WI, has undergone some changes, for the positive, I believe. It is now a "German Steakhouse and Restaurant" They have added some more up-scale steak and seafood dishes, as well as condensing their German food menu. I had a good Jaegerschnitzel with Spaetzle (which have gone from a previously large, heavy version to a lighter, smaller noodle-like version). My girlfriend had a Gorgonzola Filet Mignon with garlic-rosemary mashed potatoes and sauted vegetables. It was honestly one of the best, most tender and flavorful steaks I have ever had! The fun beer-hall, polka-music atmosphere is still the same. Give it a try!
