Great burgers but you must have a Bloody Mary here. It is more than a drink - it is an experience! We prefer the original location on St Paul Ave over the one on the Marquette University campus.

We are alumni and were walking around the Marquette campus. We decided to stop by to catch the Wisconsin basketball game. We sat at the bar and had a beer and appetizers. Nice choice of draft beer and mainstream appetizers that satisfied although did not hit any real highlights. Atmosphere was family friendly with lots of high schoolers visiting for... More

As Milwaukee natives, this is one of the places to be! Their burgers and bloody marys are fabulous. Expect a wait especially if you go on the day of some sort of televised sporting event, but the crowds do tend to move faster than you are quoted!

Wonderful spot in a bar atmosphere. Food is very good, prices are reasonable. Service is very good. The location is in the Marquette University Campus, so plenty of college students and great spot for them.

Stopped here for the famous bloody mary's. Place was packed, but we didn't have to wait that long, surprisingly (we didn't have reservations). Drinks were very expensive. Bloody mary's were amazing, and the appetizers were too. So good!

We'd heard about their crazy drinks and they lived up to the hype. The food and drinks were affordable and the atmosphere was great. Sobelmans seemed like a local favorite where people go to relax after work and wind down. Everyone seemed to be in a great mood and the service was very good. You have to order some bloody... More

My boyfriend and I made this our first stop in Milwaukee, I have been on the hunt for a real good bloody. Looking no more! I had the baconado and my love had the crown Mary, both in which had enough stuff in them to make them a meal. Reasonably priced. We also ordered the fish fry special, omg cod... More

I will admit, I'm not usually one to wait 45 minutes for a burger, but it was TOTALLY WORTH THE WAIT!!! I had Dave's Fav cheeseburger with salsa and mayo, DELICIOUS!!! Fries were cooked to perfection!!! I will be coming back to try a Bloody Mary and a different burger! A little warning - this place is small and I... More

I treat myself to the Sobelman's Burger with jalapeño raw onion made how I like it. The price fits well with my budget without giving up taste.
