The place to hang before a game

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.

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...

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.

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.
