My husband and I went here for my birthday a few years ago and had their beer and food! It was very good. The night we went ( Tuesday) there was a dance club that showed up and they were into swing dancing. It was pretty neat to see them dance !

Stopped by with recommendations from a friend who lived in Milwaukee. Very good recommendation. Beer selection and food selection was great. Sat out on the deck overlooking the river walk. Very nice summer or fall stop.

This is one of our favorite stops when we visit Milwaukee. Great micro beer choices and relaxing place right on the river. In the summer we will just get a beer and hangout by the river and catch-up with old friends/family. If you like beer...definitely recommend stopping and having a beer.

My office is near by. So we stop there for lunch. We have also gone there for dinner and some special events. The location on the river makes for a relaxing and enjoyable time, even in the fall and spring. The food is good and consistently prepared. Always some interesting specials as options as well. If you are into local... More

A no-brainer when we are in the area is to eat at the Ale House. Besides the wonderful brews, the food choices are varied and well ptepared, and the patio affords you a great parade of boats and kayaks plying the Milwaukee River. Docking at the restaurant is also a plus for those of you lucky enough to have your... More

I frequently go for lunch on weekends and enjoy sitting out on the riverfront balcony. The brunch menu is varied and the service has always been good. The river traffic is fun to watch as well.

Delicious tater tots! The best ever! And if you go downstairs, you can sit outside along the river without waiting to be seated at a table! Just go downstairs and find an open spot. Delicious food and great outdoor space.
