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.

This is the third time I have eaten here. We enjoyed good burgers (very large) and a nice, rich beer cheese soup. I have also been here for fish fry, which was good (potato pancakes!). I enjoy the atmosphere and I am comfortable bringing two small and (and somewhat loud) kids here. It is nice to know of a good... More

Went as party of ten for lunch, had reservations so promptly seated in a niche room off the main floor. Usually have qualms about newer pubs that are well tiled and timbered and lacking sound dampening upholstery. Pleased to report we were able to converse and hear one another without difficulty and enjoy the ample portions off the lunch menu.... More

This is a fun place to visit whether just for a drink or for a meal. The beer selection is broad so there is a tap beer for all tastes and they are all decent drinks. The food is excellent and I highly recommend the Pork Shank appetizer - a delicious surprise. The staff were also very friendly and helpful.... More

Took our grandkids out for Friday fish at St. Francis Brewery and was very impressed with the great food selection. The service was also very quick. We thought we would need to wait and were able to get a table in about 10 minutes. The kids also enjoyed it, asking us to take them back again. My husband also liked... More

A colleague and I stopped in for dinner on a Thursday night. We each had a burger and a couple of beers. It was trivia night and the 'sin beers' were 2 for 1. I had the amber (wrath, I think) and he had the IPA. Both were solid. The burgers were excellent and cooked properly, I had the sweet... More

We had brunch here last Sunday-3 of us. There was a wait for a dining table at 11:30am, so we took a table in the bar area, which was fine. The omelettes made at the station were great. The chef was also making eggs benedict but we didn't try those. There was a separate station with a chef making pancakes... More

Was expecting a small quaint Brewry as there are plenty to chose from in Milwaukee however this place is not small. Plenty of seating even on a busy night! Large long bar although only really one bartender maintaining the lengthy stretch. Once she arrived I have to say she was very attentive. Beer was decent with good variety to choose... More
