This place was a sports bar before the name sports bar was around. The burger and fries were out quickly and were as good as I expected. Conveniently located across from the convention center and just a block from the Bradley Center..

I went to the restaurant to watch a hockey game on a Sunday night with my friends. We had poor service, the air conditioning was on full blast and everyone in the restaurant was in their jackets because it was so cold. Half way through the game a huge spider started crawling down the middle of one projection screen. After... More

People sitting at tables that are way too close together. In addition, you just seat yourself! How stupid! It took the waitress ten minutes to find us to take our drink orders,... More

This place is across the street from the Hyatt Regency Hotel and the convention center (head north). Awesome little downtown sports bar. Best veggie burger in Milwaukee. Some of my business associates came here every evening for drinks--loved the atmosphere.

Food was typical pub food as expected. Burger was decent. Onion rings good. In and out quick since not busy on a Tuesday night. A little more costly than I would have expected.

Nice neighborhood bar atmosphere in downtown Milwaukee! Tasty burger & onion rings...I wasn't too thrilled with the fries...they were dry & bland.

Pub Fare served hot and fresh with a smile and we got to know the waitress, who was a real hoot! It is across the street from the Hyatt in the opposite direction of everything else.
