While in the area for a couples get away, my hubby and I visited lots of cute touristy things. This rated at the top of the many of the recommendation lists. We enjoyed some beers in a nearby bar and then took a stroll to find Fonz! What a hoot. The area is nice and lends itself to strolling around.... More

This is too funny and the jeans are blue, the shirt and jacket are also colored. Fonz has his thumbs up and it is great for posing next too for photos. The statue is not tall. It is a great stop as you are walking along the waterway

I wouldn't call this an attraction, but lots of people do stop and take pictures with The Fonz. It's a fun diversion, especially if you are walking around the riverwalk on a beautiful day. It is right across the riverwalk from the Rock Bottom Brewery patio.

It was fun hunting down the Bronze Fonz! Once we found him, we took plenty of fun photos. Nice view of the river behind as well.

Why is this on trip advisor? A badly painted bronze statue situated on a part of river walk. I came across it by accident. Quick photo and move on

If you are from the generation that faithfully watched this show and you happen to find yourself in Milwaukee you have to go see the Fonz! He is tucked away in a corner of the river walk and a homeless person was sleeping on the bench in the early Saturday morning we went to visit the Fonz. He is much... More

I mean, it's The Fonz, so in a way you can't really go wrong. The statue is smaller than you'd expect and the colors are...off. I suppose it adds to the kitsch factor. Located on Milwaukee's downtown River Walk (pathway along the river cutting through town), Bronze Fonz is kind of a stand-alone statue outside a Chinese restaurant. You can... 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.
