Yes, the neighborhood looks dicey. Yes, the building is creepy and windowless. But go there anyway. We walked in and the place looked like the haunted mansion at Disney World. Old pictures and chandeliers and candelabras everywhere . The bar was dark and old and fabulous. Great drinks and in WI you have to have a brandy old fashioned .... More

While on a college visit to UW Milwaukee I took my sons to Butch's as we were staying close by. Not much from the outside the inside is interesting! My martini was perfect and the escargot and shrimp cocktails were spot on! Roquefort dressing on salad was great but the chicken dumpling soup could have had a bit more salt... More

Great steak, great service, but when the bill came it was pricey. We will be back again but not as much as we would like to because of the $$. Thank You

One of the best values for steak in Milwaukee. Atmosphere of a Supper Club. Don't let the outside fool you. This is a great place for a date or for a outing with friends. They get busy soe arrive early or make reservations. I arrived early and enjoy a great martini while the steaks were freshly cut. You get a... More

Don't let the outside of the building deter you. This place is old and interesting on the inside. Our steaks were very good for the price range. They came with your choice of potato and some delicious sauteed mushrooms, and a nice salad (or soup). If you have a taste for some good steak, but don't want to pay a... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside but once you are inside it is a reminder of restaurants from the past. Food was very good and service was good also. The shrimp are huge.
