I've had mixed reviews of the Grafton Ale House over the years, but my last two visits have been positive. My only complaint is the ever present aroma of stale beer, which I should probably expect in the "Ale House". The buffalo chicken wings are mild, served with runny blue cheese, but the burgers are wonderful. I had a turkey... More

We have been to the Milwaukee Ale House in Grafton several times with our family. One of us ordered the chicken pot pie and said it was very good. Three of us had burgers and fries and they were also very good. One had the fish fry and said it was ok but had tasted better. Our servers were always... More

The Ale House is in a great looking building that has a lot of character. We had good service and above average food.

We probably eat here once a week, and if the staff is reading this, they can probably figure out who we are. First of all, I disagree with the reviewer who said that the menu was better when owned by the former owners. The food on that menu was tasteless and reminded me of hospital food. Kudos to the current... More

Really good food. Make sure you get the cheese curds and the house mayo sauce! The flat bread I've had was a little bland, but everything else was incredible.

Went for lunch on Labor Day, restaurant wasn't that busy but terribly under-staffed. Server seemed frazzled. Flies were biting my ankles which was pretty unpleasant. Took 20 minutes to get our drinks, another 20 minutes for the appetizer (bacon wrapped water chestnuts were good, nachos were greasy but we were hungry so we ate them)..no drink refills offered. Twenty minutes... More

My husband and I took an afternoon trip out to Grafton and Cedarburg and decided to have dinner at the Milwaukee Ale House. so happy we did. The food was wonderful, great selection from burgers and sandwiches to ribs, fish etc. I had the Thai Chicken Po boy sandwich with sweet potato fries, delicious! The sandwich was tender and full...

Great atmosphere! Love being seated on the patio overlooking the river. Wide range of food items and one can not forget the specially brewed microbrewed beers.

I wish this one was still owned by the same people as the downtown Milwaukee location. The food was SO much better! Now, the menu is pretty small, and the prices went up. Food is still decent, but it was just better when it first opened. If you need to have a gathering they do have a really nice upstairs... More
