Great MSG-free fish fry and always great service and bartenders. R.I.P. Brochach Milwaukee. I'm hoping the new Red Lion Pub that replaced it is at least half as good then I won't be disappointed.

We happened to drive past this place on a Sunday afternoon and decided to stop in for a drink. The atmosphere is very authentic. The bartender was very attentive and friendly. We went upstairs to check out the outdoor patio and the servers we encountered were very friendly. The patio looked inviting. Seems like a nice out of the way... More

Cook's not as good as the ones there the... More

This was a nice stop on our 'tour' of bars that had Lakefront Brewery beer on tap. We sat outside and enjoyed some Irish music over the PA system (no band that day). Our server was pleasant. We'd like to go back sometime and try the food!

There are lots of really good Irish pubs in Milwaukee and each have their charm. Brocach has an authentic feel and the food is truly good which separates them from the pack.

I brought a group of 6 to enjoy their yummy HH special --- Sliders (3 for $6, 4 for $7) -- Everyone enjoyed their sliders. When the weather gets warmer, they have outdoor movies upstairs on their patio overlooking the river -- very nice. They have a good brunch too. Nice place / nice people / good food!

if you've ever been to Ireland this place will take you back there, the dark wood bar and decor will remind you of a place you remember being in when you were there,the relaxed feeling and great service and good food are worth the trip, every time we are there we start thinking about planning a trip back to Ireland...

A group of ten of us made a reservation and had dinner early on a Friday evening as part of a Christmas celebration. Because of the varied group, we ended up ordering a variety of entrees. Shepherds Pie, Steak, burgers, and fish were all enjoyed. The one negative comment was the Burger was a bit to done, after being ordered... More

Brocach is very cute, great ambiance, and superb Irish food. At Christmas time they have a tree upstairs. There is also a fireplace.

Place is just great! The food is fantastic - their bangers and mash are a must. Most authentic style Irish pub I've been to outside of Ireland, to include a bunch of folks bringing in every kind of instrument you can play and jamming all sorts of songs together in one of the corners. It's always a friendly crowd with... More
