Let me count the ways. First: Happy hour runs from 3:30-6:30, Monday-Thursday, with two-dollar choices of pints of Lakeshore beer and “dockworker’s” wine. Second: the antipasto menu includes a delightful spinach-artichoke dip in alfredo sauce. Next: the Fiesta pizza has garlic crème, cheese, red peppers, and mushrooms adorning a crispy, light crust. Once-a-year bonus: The restaurant is a sponsor of... More

The great thing about Transfer is that there are gluten free, dairy free, and vegetarian options. The not as great thing is that because of all this, the wait time can be significant. And in my opinion, it's not worth the wait. It is a good place for a pizza, but not the best in Milwaukee. Try Pizza Man or... More

I was so excited to try the pizza and beer at Transfer Pizzeria when I visited Milwaukee with my husband. Mainly, because I heard they have Lakefront Brewery New Grist gluten free beer on tap! Since my gluten sensitivity diagnosis 4 years ago, I have been unable to enjoy a nice draught beer..until Transfer Pizzeria!! So exciting to experience that... More

We had been wanting to try this place for a long time and finally got there last week. What a great place! It is much larger inside than I expected, very roomy and bright. We were there during happy hour so got to enjoy really good Lakefront Brewery beers for just $2 each. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The... More

Not many cafes are open after 9pm in Milwaukee. Open until 11pm Fri/Sat and 10pm during the week, Transfer has a great selection of draft beers and espresso, as well as an amazing menu of personal pizzas and sandwiches. Allow me to recommend the Bazilio salad for low-carb diners: complex flavors, filling and healthy. Great lunch menu. Pizzas can be... More

Not as good as it used to be when the original chef was there. Apparently he quit a couple months ago and you can definitely taste the difference in the food. Went from a "must go" place to a "ya, that was good, I guess". Plus I'm pretty sure our waiter was on something. Glad I had a coupon!

Transfer Pizza places the bar pretty high for pizza enthusiasts. I consider myself a foodie and have tried many restaurants around the United States. This is my FAVORITE place for pizza and dinner in general. Their hand-tossed crust has the perfect crunch and texture and doesn't feel like a greasy gut bomb after you eat it. The staff is very...

Large windows let in a ton of light in this former pharmacy space..check out all the woodwork..Lunch specials make it more than affordable and the food is to die for ! ! ! the pizza is heaven as is the pasta, as good as anything you...

I have been to Transfer pizzeria Cafe several times. Lunch and evening. The Pasta and pizzas were great both times,and very very friendly service. Have always found parking, eventhough it's street parking. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun atmosphere and great food. You won't be dissapointed.
