Decent place to stop for pre-game food

Stopped here before seeing Bucks game. Food ended up being pretty good. They could stand to clean a little better. Looked like a great place to watch any game with a lot of TV's. Service was satisfactory. Enjoyed checking out all the memorabilia. Food prices were decent.

It gets annoying after a while , nothing but sports on tv all day long. Did they ever stop to think that maybe not everyone wants to listen that stuff all day long.They should have at least one little corner where normal people can eat without being annoyed by a bunch of drunk wannabe high school athletes , just grow...

There is a TV for ever game being played at that time. Being the lone KC Chiefs fans, we were able to watch the game but it was still fun to be in Packer Country! The Fried Pickles were the best!

We were visiting Milwaukee on Super Bowl Sunday. After some research, decided to watch the game at this bar because of the numerous tv's. It turned out to be an excellent decision. The food was terrific, service was exceptional. Had a great time.

Stopping at Goolsby's is a must before a Bucks or Admirals game. The prices are fair, food is good and the service people are friendly. Fun atmosphere for friends and business clients. Grab a table off on the side as they are packed in tight and not much room to walk when all the tables are full.

Always a must stop when visiting downtown Milwaukee. Bar food at it's best. Inside could use a little updating and a good cleaning - but I was too busy eating my burger to be too concerned.

We ate lunch here before the matinee. We had sandwiches, fries, and onion rings - all good, all really big portions. Our server was very friendly and brought me a sundae for my birthday.

Recommend the food but be careful with the servers. Ordering a burger and asked if there is something I could get instead of fries, she listed 4 options without mentioning the significant upcharge. The side I received cost as much as my main meal!! I mentioned this to the waitress and got a shrug and "it is all listed in... More

Fun ambience and close to the hotel. Kind of disappointed that the food was served in the kind of trays you'd get in a ball park. Ave food for ave prices.

We live in the area so when in the mood for awesome wings and service, this is our go-to. It is in a great location, near the Bradley Center, and close to Water St and Old World 3rd St nightlife. Tonight I met my significant other and his friend. I saddled up at the bar next to them and was... More
