A March 2005 trip
to Green Bay by figgy0223
Quote: My mother lives in Green Bay, very close to Lambeau Field. My brother and I often visit her for weekends at a time and usually go out to a couple restaurants, go to a concert, or hit the casino.
There are 138 TVs in the pub showing everything from tennis to, of course, football. With a maximum capacity of 282 people, that's practically one TV for every two people.
The food is good, especially to the locals, who enjoy a good burger, some Booyah!, and a great beer. Booyah is a local soup similar to chicken noodle with a tomato base. Other food items include your basic german fare such as bratwurst and other favorites like a Rueben sandwich. There are healthy options too for those that don’t want to dive into the typical Wisconsin foods, such as turkey and swiss wrap sandwich and an array of salad choices.
The pub also has a very large children’s area with arcade games, ski machines, basketball hoops and of course, football simulators.
The large bar in the center of the restaurant is surrounded a wall covered with the history of the Packers. The beer serves up Miller products as well as Leinenkugels on tap (some of the best Wisconsin beers) and Blue Moon. Be sure to try Leinenkugels Creamy Dark; it’s my mother’s favorite.
The restaurant is open seating with all bar stools and tall tables. The best places to sit are along the wall of windows facing the Brown County Arena and the Resch Center, two stadiums that host basketball games as well as concerts. And to your right you can see the practice field for the Packers. You will notice that below you in the parking lot is a gated section and if your lucky, you can spot the players as they their SUV’s in for practice.
While Curly’s Pub doesn’t have the best food; you definitely get your money’s worth because the portions are large. Many "novelty" restaurants charge more for the atmosphere but Curly’s Pub is good for the budget traveler. A must visit for the Lambeau first-timer.

Restaurant | "Title Town Brewery"
They have a large lunch menu (a slightly different dinner menu is available at night) with appetizers, salads, soups, pizzas, sandwiches, and main dishes, as well as an extensive beer menu featuring eight beers brewed at the location, two special seasonal beers, and a root beer. Currently, the specialty beers are a Zachary Taylor Ale (can’t remember the exact name) and "Bock" to the Future, a German bock. We ordered both of these, and they were very smooth and delicious. The bock beer was very "hoppy," but the person who ordered it likes beers that way. Both had great aftertastes that hinted at its sweet side.
My mother highly recommended the wood-roasted chicken salad. She ordered a Rueben sandwich, my boyfriend ordered the bison melt, and I ordered the turkey-pita special ($8). Sandwiches come with your choice of sides, including fries, mashed potatoes, or a cucumber salad. The fries are excellent, but I always opt for the cucumber salad, not only because it’s healthier, but it’s also very sweet and tasty. It’s a mix of cucumbers, red peppers, and small chunks of onion in a citrus sauce.
Last time I was there, I ordered the cranberry turkey melt, and it was incredible. Basically, it was a simple turkey sandwich with provolone cheese on homemade zucchini bread with cranberry-onion marmalade. I highly recommend this strange-sounding but great-tasting sandwich ($8).
Everyone enjoyed their meals. They have quality ingredients and appropriate quantities, and beer comes in two sizes, 10-ounce or 20-ounce, so you can try a new one without having to get drunk from it.
You can also purchase beer by the gallon and merchandise. There is a bar area available for smoking and glass walls so you can see the beer kettles. There is a large parking lot available at no cost. Decor includes some retro-style signs, lots of dark and medium wood, and a naturally lit dining area separated into a couple larger sections, all nonsmoking except the bar. You can look at their menu and read about the beers at www.titletownbrewing.com.
