This was the third time I stopped at John Hawk's Pub. Each time we stopped it was at a different time of day and different days of the week, but the end math equation slow service + good food = undecided rating? :) Part of the slow service from the bar's perspective is due to the overwhelming amount of drinks...

Hostess/manager was unprofessional. Service was slow. Wifes food made her sick. My food was very rare (I ordered it medium well). The manager claimed it was med well even though the meat was only lighly browned on the outside. The few french fries I ate upset my stomach. I would not consider patronizing that place again.

We stopped in after a movie (Tuesday evening, 1/7/14) for a sandwich and some beer without a voucher knowing we would pay full price. On the basis of previous experiences perhaps our expectations were too high. The service was lousy and the food and beer was not what we ordered. We are always suspicious of restaurants that do not write... More

This place has an absolutely great location along the Milwaukee River. However, on a cold/windy evening the door that opens to the river entrance causes a major chill throughout the restaurant. The food is standard pub grub... OK, but nothing to get too excited over. Mixed drinks were inconsistent in strength/quality. Service was a little slow, but our server was... More

The service here is welcoming and attentive. Stop to watch a game, enjoy great pub food and generous drinks. The fried cheese curds are great!

Good view on the Riverwalk. The service is good, and staff is friendly. The pulled pork sandwich and onion rings are very good.

We had a very nice late lunch or early dinner of fish and chips. Fish was generous. Because of the time of day it was quite. Waitress was very helpful.

I had to kook around a little to find the place, but glad I made the stop. Good beer selection and a nice wide menu to choose from. A good stopping place while you are on a Riverwalk pub crawl. Try the naked wings, pretty good.

Food here is amazing! You will not be disappointed try the pulled pork or pulled chicken! It's like a home cooked meal here. We ate here 2 days during our trip and we would return again if ever back in Milwaukee!

If you are able to sit on the riverwalk, I would highly recommend it. It's nice to have a couple drinks and watch the boats on the river. It is interesting as the outdoor seating is right on the riverwalk path so people are forever walking to and from as you are sitting there. Local brew known as the Spotted... More
