So many great stores, so little parking. Most weekends it is almost impossible to find parking in the Third Ward. Maybe Third Ward Merchants should consider offering some type of shuttle from parking ramps located in the general area - especially in the evening.

So nice to window shop, then go inside for samples and sights and smells! Are the shops and restaurants along the street are vintage and classic Milwaukee of yesteryear. You get a great feel and you wont leave empty handed! A great place to visit and enjoy for a couple of hours!

Could life get any better?! Usinger's justly famous sausage, etc., much of which can be bought here cheaply from the bargain table behind the main counter. Definitely dine at Mader's (park off street if need be, right next door). Just don't tell your cardiologist!

Usingers for sausage, a little shop for spices, a couple of places to try local beers and Maders for delicious German food. What more could a visitor to Milwaukee want? When we lived here we brought friends from out of town, and we always return ourselves when we are in Milwaukee.

So many good things to see and do! We like the German restaurants and Usinger's sausage. Parking can be a little difficult, but get out and walk!

A friend and I had lunch here while on the Hop-On-Hop-Off bus tour. The restaurant is an amazing place - lots of history, a cool shop - and the food is marvelous! I had the sampler platter and it was more food than I could possibly eat - in fact, the leftovers took care of two more meals. Since my... More
