St. Francis Brewery & Restaurant has been serving heavenly food and sinfully good beer to the St. Francis and Milwaukee community since April 2009. As a locally owned business, our restaurant creates a warm, family-friendly dining experience. Our full menu offers something for everyone with several unique items made with our beer or hand-crafted soda. Brewmaster Scott Hettig creates traditional brews with new seasonal and cask conditioned beers to try each month. Beers on tap at the restaurant are brewed on site with the option to buy or refill half-gallon growlers of our beer or hand-crafted soda.

Easy meal for Saturday night

Are here while in Milwaukee over night. Arrived around 5 and restaurant wasn't very busy. There probably four hostesses standing around waiting. Seated immediately and server was prompt. Ordered the volcano salad, husband had the portobello burger and daughter had the fish tacos sans toppings... read more

The food was average I guess for the atmosphere which is also average. The service was not what I expected at all. Felt more like we were at a cheaper chain restaurant. Had to walk around the entire restaurant to get to the widely spread out food stations. By the time you finally sit down to eat after carrying different... More

First time here and the waitress did not rush us to make a decision-gave us time to look over the menu. She was also a bundle of knowledge to make sure we ordered a beer that we would enjoy.Once we decided, the drinks and food came in a timely manner.

We came here for lunch one afternoon and we sat out on the patio. The waitress was really friendly and attentive and quick with water refills. We started off with a beer sampler flight and an order of Spinach/Artichoke dip. The beers were good and the standouts for us were the Lust Weissbeer and the Envy IPA. My 6 yo... More

I am a regular customer and like the beer.the last few visits food quality is suffering to a point we eat at another place and just stop for a beer. I know of a few other people who stopped going there because food is not what it used to be..

We went to the brewery with our family on a sun. Night. The place was super dead, yet it took forever for our server to wait on us and she didn't seem interested in our table at all. It's a big place, but you could hear a pin drop. Also, the food was on the pricier side

Stopped by here for a quick bite whilst house hunting in the area. St. Francis Brewery has a church-like theme which contrasts incredibly well with the brewing equipment out back and their huge bar. Clearly hit with the local clergy as they were there for lunch! We opted for appetisers as we weren't too hungry. I had the chicken tenders... More

I never knew the St. Francis brewery existed until about three weeks ago, since then I have been three times!!! It is a great spot to grab a drink at the bar, or sit down and get food. The fish tacos are hands down my favorite fish tacos in Milwaukee. They also have a great selection of micro brewed beers...... More

Fish fry on Friday in Milwaukee is big time business. We were lucky that on this Friday the 4th of July fireworks were being held in Milwaukee so we had only minutes to wait for a table. We were pleased our server was Brian, who was very knowledgable of their beer and food. My husband had their beer which he... More
