We were told to go for the meatloaf and we did just that. The salad was fresh, the dressing was house made, the potatoes were delicious, the meatloaf was wrapped in bacon, the green beans were fresh, firm and delicious and the beer gravy was perfect. Finally, a comfort food meal that is not drowning in salt. The portions were... More

We loved it! Would come back again. Gets crowded but the food is so worth it!! Cool veggie options like walnut burger, seitan Salisbury steak, and veggie rib cutlets. Also the beer cheese sauce on the fries is AMAZING! And good drinks too. Fun dive.

I used to be a regular here when I lived across the street and recently stopped by for lunch. I love the wide range of vegetarian options! It's so nice to go to a casual restaurant where the food is good and you have options beyond a mushroom sandwich. It's a fun diner-type place where you can relax and enjoy... More

Visited Comet Cafe while in Milwaukee for a wedding. We chose this restaurant as it had been featured on "Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives". The menu is simple but unique and I would need to go back at least 5 more times to try all the things I was curious about on the menu. I and several others had the meatloaf... More

Comet is comfort food for both the omnivore and the herbivore. The vegetarian sausage is probably the best sausage I've eaten in my life, and none of the vegetarian options disappoint. All the food is extremely well-prepared, delicious and filling. The desserts are to die for. The only drawback is the wait time, be prepared to wait 45 minutes or... More

Just what you expect from comfort food in Milwaukee: spicey fries and burgers, craft beers or malts and there's bacon, bacon, bacon. Bacon pancakes. A BELT, (Bacon, egg, lettuce and tomato). Yum, yum all around. Founded in 1947. We're glad we found it in 2014.
