Have been going to this restaurant since the 60's, yes, it is dated, needs new carpeting, or wood floors and bathroom update, but we do there for the food, atmosphere and the two wonderful musicians that play on the weekend. I love Serbian food, the presentation, flavor can't be beat, great service - give it a try, you can't go... More

Customers waited to be seated could have been served.This area could use some... More

I came here for the first time. As for interior look of restaurant, you can see that it is a restaurant that has been here for a long time. Nice thing about it is, that they preserve a neat homelike atmosphere.I eat chicken soup and Burek with cheese. And for dessert i had a nice apple pie. Food was delicious.As... More

My family went to this restaurant for our Christmas dinner. Our meals were excellent, especially the fish my husband had. He raved about it. My daughter's dinner and mine were also very, very good. Excellent flavors and nice presentation. They had two musicians playing during our dinner which made the ambiance even more special. I would also highly recommend the... More

We have been here a few time and it has always been good. Illia is the best server.We have learned to stay away from the Bar as drinks are very over priced for that end of town. We see why they never have any one sitting at the bar. But that said we stop for a couple else where before... More

The owner is not a good front of house person. I've seen her berate bus staff in front of patrons and that made us very uncomfortable. On a recent visit she was just a little chilly but the excellent food, friendly and exceptional service and sweet busgirl made us almost forget her. I get that she's the owner but this... More

Old Town is an amazing reminder of the Eastern European influence on the South Side of Milwaukee. While the neighborhood has moved on to show the influences of more recent immigrants to the area, Old Town remains to provide a bridge to the past. While the decor is in some serious need of updating, you can see the love that... More

I'm a bit torn writing this review since it was not your typical dining experience. We had a group of nearly 30 for an afternoon birthday party. The small staff did a great job of keeping up with this big group which they did with humor and ease. I think that was the highlight. I know some in attendance really... More

This wonderful restaurant is a hidden gem on the south side of Milwaukee, It takes a little navigation to find it however it's worth the trip and there is ample parking in the rear of the property. In an era of formulaic restaurant food which is oftentimes overdone and expensive they provide a wonderful european dining experience with unique flavors... More
