Fun place to hang out

We had a group of 10 and were able to get a table without too long of a wait. Varied menu had something for everyone and the drink selections were above average. Overall good experience.

Great location overlooking the water and central to the 3rd Ward. Has all the amenities of a brew pub on the water for a big city. Food is good, beer actually very good for pub this caliber. Come alone or as a group as its plenty big! Great place to meet!

Went for a late lunch when the patio was about 1/2 full. Food was very good, Turkey/Ham Club & Cobb Salad. Total time 1 hour and 13 minutes. No apology. Total bill $26.

Really nice place to sit and enjoy a meal with a cold beer. Pretty good selection of their own beers. Best cheese curds and tater tots I've probably ever had. (Tater tots are worth the extra cost as a side). Really nice scenic seating along the riverwalk. Girlfriend had the blackened salmon and that was delicious as well!

We were seated promptly after arriving. We ordered the nachos as a appetizer and the combo of jalapeño and black olives were really tasteful. I ordered two darker beers. The first was the sheepshead. An oatmeal stout with rich coffee flavor. The second, the polish moon, a black malt stout with more malt flavor than the other. Personally the polish... More

I was here as part of a large dinner group. The food was very good, and they had a lot of good beers on the menu. The one I had was quite good. Downstairs, they have a bar next to several dinner tables and a large outdoor patio near the water. On summer evenings, the ambience is great out there.... More

We had a large group to celebrate completing a local triathlon race. They were ready for us with the table set, water poured and extra pitchers on the table. Our waiter, Michael, helped with food and drink (beer) selections. Some mistakes were made, which he took responsibility for and quickly corrected. Nice menu of sandwiches, pizza and entree's. The bacon... More

My wife and I stopped in for beers and on nice summer days it's fun to set on the lower patio facing the Milwaukee River to watch the people walk by on the river walk, plus check out the boat traffic. I enjoyed a nice cream ale, and she had the Belgian wit. Good service. They are dog-friendly.

The place is great for a few drinks with friends. The local beer is very good. The food is nothing to write home about but is not bad. During the summer the outside seating is quite nice. Some nights they have a live band / karaoke which is great but makes talking to your friends kinda hard. Parking is not... More

Excellent salmon salad. Greens were fresh and salmon was grilled to order. Rachel was an attentive barkeep. I visit the city each year to visit family and the first stop after a day kayaking (Milwaukee Kayak Company: Ask for Beth!!!!).
