If you're a fan, you should go.

The statue doesn't really look exactly like Fonzie, but it's art so there's always a little interpretation. I was a big Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley fan so HAD to come take... read more

Got to see it if your by the river. I wouldn't go out of the way to see this statue. The statue does not look like the Fonz at all. But it's a cute thing to take a picture with and move on.

The statue doesn't really look exactly like Fonzie, but it's art so there's always a little interpretation. I was a big Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley fan so HAD to come take a picture with the Fonz. I just put "Bronz Fonz" into the map app on my phone and it directed us right to it.

While I thoroughly enjoyed the river walk and the rest of the sculptures, this one is simply creepy. I understand the whole Fonz thing and I guess this smallish sculpture is probably true to size, but I would not make a special trip to see it unless I was a huge Henry Winkler fan.

Ever since I learned this statue existed, I wanted to get here. When I was little, I was going to marry the Fonz!! It is a life-sized replica and he is short man! It was fun to finally be here!

Worth the stop! I stopped to get a picture with the Fonz during the evening. The River and lights looked beautiful as the backdrop for the statue.

We loved walking on the river walk in Milwaukee. Relaxing and fun sights! We stopped at a couple different bars and restaurants and just enjoyed the whole Milwaukee experience.

Our kiddos don't really know who Fonzie is, but they were more than willing to strike a pose next to his statue. It's located in a spot along the river, not easily accessible, but a fun visit if you're in the area.

If you are a child who grew up in the Happy Days era, the Bronz Fonz is a must stop for a picture op. It is right on the Riverwalk which makes it very convenient.

Come and have your picture taken with the Fonz... Henry Winkler did. He stands on the scenic Bridge Walk in downtown Milwaukee. Located near some pleasing food establishments.
