Good For Lunch

Attending an event in Milwaukee and stopped here for lunch before entering the arena. Wife and I both had burgers and sweat potato fries. Both were good.

These guys show every game playing and there are TV's everywhere. Cheap pints and cheap pub food that is really good and greasy... Perfect for watching football and to take a chartered bus to Green Bay for the football game and back. Best wings I ever had...

Had a quick lunch with 2 other business associates. Their signature burger was great as were the cheese curds. The service was fast, friendly, and accurate. Lots of TV's all over the place to keep pace with anything you might want. The ambiance was clean and sporty. This is a great place to eat, drink, take a friend, and enjoy.... More

Majors had one of the best bacon cheeseburgers I've had in a long time! Watched Monday night football and drank some Wisconsin beer!

Wonderful place to watch the Packers! Enjoy a Packer shot with each Pack TD-- One of the best Bloody Mary's I've ever had- Not too spicy, garnished with olives, celery and of course a triangle of sausage. Right next to Bradley Center- at least 50 large TV's

We had a wonderful time in here eating and drinking before we went to a game nearby. We were from out of town and stayed at the hotel right nearby so it was very convenient. Lots of TVs if you wanted to watch something on the tube while there, great atmosphere.

Major Goolsby's is considered one of the best sports bars in the United States. It's arguably the best sports bar in Wisconsin, though State Street Brats in Madison gives it a pretty good battle. If you're into any Wisconsin sports teams you must make a trip into Major Goolsby's. It's across the street from the Arena, and just a block... More

I dont really like the food here, but the beer flows and during football season they give free shots when the Packers score. So that is pretty awesome. Not a very young vibe, but lively during sporting events. Standard bar.

Stopped here for a business lunch, thought about order a double burger but decided to go with the single. Glad I did as this baby was big and juicy! Best part was the really soft bun......I love those! Excellent hamburger and excellent tater tots! Wish i could have had a couple of beers to go along but had to go... More

This restaurant is a must for Milwaukee and Wisconsin sports fans. Lots of memorabilia for all sports, not only local sports teams, and good choice of foods at a reasonable price. Very friendly staff and good quality.
