Sobelman's is well known for its bloody Mary's with toppings from fried cheese curds to an entire chicken. We opted for one with shrimp and cheese and a cheeseburger slider. It comes with a little beer back. While fun it was unremarkable. We also tried a medium rare burger topped with sautéed onion, mushrooms and blue cheese. The burger was... More

I'll give it to Sobelman's, they make a Bloody Mary that tastes darn good and delivers even more fun in the presentation itself. I'd like all of my future Bloody Mary's to come with cheese wedge, sausage, bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers, and maybe a slider for good measure. We went all out and ordered everything that sounded good and that my... More

Their slogan says it all, "Best Hamburgers in Milwaukee". This is on the money, in fact one of the best burgers anywhere. Nice atmosphere, so so staff.

This place isn't fine dinning, but it is definitely five stars! I have been wanting to go to this establishment for over a year now. How else could I justify getting The Bloody Beast on any other day except my birthday? So I went with a group of 5 friends, we called the day before to see if we could... More

Was looking forward to a good Friday night burger in the city. Has good reviews from friends but was a bit disappointed. We arrived about 9 pm, had a 20 min wait, and was seated at a table in a room off the bar. Very noisy, felt like we were sitting on top of each other. 3 of us had... More

Who doesn't want a Bloody Mary with a WHOLE FRIED CHICKEN on it! It was insane! The pitcher was huge (80 onces and VERY tasty)... Besides... More

All the pictures and other reviews on TA pretty much say it all. This is a friendly, unpretentious bar (in kind of a back-water location -- you have to seek this joint out...) with really great burgers and legendary Bloody Mary's that live up to their name. FUN place you can go to and talk about later. We'd definitely go... More
