I love Elsa's and have been going there for years, but I will never go after 8pm again!!! I was there with a nice group of friends trying to enjoy my evening and we were next to a table of extremely loud women with tastless straws hanging out of their martini glasses screaming profanity! Even the server looked flustered! the... More

I generally don't review restaurants. I use Tripadvisor to track hotels so I can remember which I liked and disliked for future stays. However, I often remember a great restaurant but can't recall where it was when I get back to town. So - I'm noting a few of the restaurants that were worth remembering. This place was fantastic. I... More

My friend had a dirty martini and I ordered a Moscow mule-both were great! For dinner I ordered the Bigger Mac burger. It was amazing! I think it... More

Had lunch with a friend and started with a hot apple cider - very good. We both had the tomato soup which was excellent! I had the All American Grilled Cheese - it had four cheeses, bacon and tomato - a great choice for a cool day. I chose waffle fries for my side - the server recommended a spicy... More

Had a grilled cheese sandwich with bacon and avacado and a portobello mushroom. Both were excellent. It was a bit difficult to get hold of the waiter when needed, but would return again.

We stopped at Elsa's before heading to the Milwaukee Repertory Theater for a show and it was perfect! The cozy, relaxed environment was a peaceful retreat from a busy day!!! The service was excellent and the options on the menu were wonderful. We had the grilled vegetable appetizer - WOW!!! YUMMY! We also had dinner and that was great as... More
