Great food in a retro setting tucked away so that it might be missed.

My husband and I have lived in the Bay View area for 20 years, we've had De Marinis pizza over and over again, so how is it Three Brothers was just around the corner and "we never knew!" We were looking for something new for date night and found it on trip advisor. I called ahead and ordered the... read more

One of the things you need to know is that it is cash or check only - so be prepared! My husband and I ordered burek, a flakey pastry with meat and cheese and sarma. The burek takes a long time to cook (45 min) but it is worth the wait. I was apprehensive about the pickled cabbage in the... More

Awesome restaurant with history. Food was great and service was also. The waitress was more than willing to help us find fun things to do in town.

Really fun place to dine. We've been several times and enjoy the food. Don't forget to order your burek ahead of time. It takes almost an hour to prepare, but it a great appetizer to split for a table of four.

My wife took me to Three Brothers for my birthday dinner. We've eaten there several times over the past years. I ordered burek and my wife ordered moussaka. But just after we placed our order a family of six with four kids none older than five arrived without reservations. They looked like they just came in from the beach. The... More

This restaurant is like walking through the door and stepping into the finest of European restaurants. This is far more than an outstanding meal, I wish I had better words to describe the food. This is an experience; a walk in time, a mood setting meal with an ambiance you will never forget. I wish they would start to sell... More

Almost anything you order at Three Brothers will be delicious. They really take pride in everything they do. It's the type of place where the cook/chef comes out to ask you how your meal is. Do not miss Three Brothers. It's been in the same location since about 1949. The burik is famous and it's very good, but I prefer... More

Great place for an event, in this instance my birthday. Don enjoyed his martini and glass of merlot. Excellent service, the food interesting and very tasty. Not bland as someone said. The barek Don had did take about 45 minutes but it said that on the menu. It was so large we will have it for dinner tomorrow. Really liked... More

I have been going to this place since 1970 when I still lived in Milwaukee. My wife and I split a spinach and cheese burek, my usual order. It’s become heavier on the cheese over the years, which is a Serbian style feta that tastes like nothing else you’ve ever tasted. I disagree with other reviewers who think the food... More

I meet with a nurse friend for dinner once a month and tonight "Three Brothers" restaurant in Bay View was where we met for dinner. For starters, the restaurant has been operating at this site since 1954, from what I understand of its history. The building was built in 1897 and is on the National Register of Historical Sites.
