Mac & cheese says it all

Seriously awesome mac and cheese. A must try if you ask me. Atmosphere is very calming as well. Gotta try it.

One of our go-to restaurants in town. Great specials, the food is always good! A large selection of craft beers rounds out the meal.

This is a local's favorite. Many of us come back every month or two when we are showing off the area, or just want a nice view of the river and a special meal with very drinkable microbrews. The menu is solid every day, and has enough specials to change your mind about what you thought you wanted when you... More

Good food, great beer, nice views, fantastic service. Have always been pleased on our many visits. Menu is far superior to your average establishment. Wait staff is knowledgeable of the beer selection. That is very important at a brew pub and is often not the case.

I wish there was a location in Waukesha too! We've frequented the Grafton and Milwaukee location and are never disappointed! We have always had friendly service in Grafton, Milwaukee too, but Grafton stands out to me as I write this as being above and beyond good. The app selections are always good and surprisingly their salads too. Those pretzels thou!... More

Best "frickles" I've ever had! The sauce was perfect and they even came with some coleslaw. For my main dish I had the fish tacos. The tacos came with rice and some corn and some tasty sauce. The fish wasn't deep fried and ridiculous in my shells like most fish tacos. It was grilled and of a reasonable size to... More

Relaxing atmosphere on river. Food was very good, service was excellent, good selection of beers on tap, and prices were reasonable.

Enjoyed an terrace table overlooking the river on a gorgeous fall day. While the menu consists of some fairly usual pub food, everything appears to have some special twist. I had the blackened chicken sandwich and it was tasty in itself but also came with a variety of sauces and relishes. And though I prefer my cole slaw a little... More

Our server was delightful, prompt and efficient even with a lot of tables to manage. This was our third pick for restaurants- the first was empty- never a good sign. The second - we waited over 10 mins without even a drink order (the staff looked bored) so we got up and left. Then we decided to hit the Ale... More
