Great food and excellent staff which was much needed after a full day of tests and procedures at Froedtert.

Four of us arrived at restaurant and it wasn't very busy. Had reservations and still had to wait. Innovation offered a beer- batter cod as their Friday Fish Fry (all you care to eat) with salad bar. Salad has two types of lettuce, cucumbers, black olives, fresh red onions, cheese and bacon. Sides were warm hush puppies, warm corn bread... More

The food was beyond bad. I ordered the burger and it was cold and so was the bready bun. I would rather have Burger King. Save your money.

I had to travel to this area on business almost every week for the past two years. The food here was uniformly excellent. My favorites were the variations on steak or grilled salmon served on salad. The best part was the service by all the staff with a special nod to Mary and Frankie who always served dinner with a... More

Local restaurant for where we work. Excellent Friday Buffet (fried cod or baked cod) with salad bar for $12. Or you can just get salad bar for $7.95. Includes dessert bars. Its simple and you also get clam chowder soup with the price. Excellent food and very filling. This is also offered at dinner time, salad bar.

Excellent service - room service was always prompt and accurate and tasty hot. Breakfast buffet or menu service - super nice ladies who seem to be working because they enjoy their job. For room service, I landed on the calamari with Thai dipping sauce and stuck with it several nights because it was SO good. Accompanied it by a mixed... More

We stayed at the hotel and really enjoyed the Breakfast Bar as it was full of choices and everything was delicious. Lots of healthy choices as well. The one dinner we had there was really good - a popular spot for their all you can eat fish fry. We didn't have a reservation and the place was packed, but we... More

Milwaukee, WI is known for their Friday fish fries ( or baked fish, as the case may be), but we have found the best one yet----Innovation in the Crowne Plaza ( corner of Watertown Plank & Hwy 100). You have a choice between baked or fried cod or walleye and each fish fry comes with the fresh market bar and... More

Hostess was completely unprofessional, didn't even give the server a chance to get our drinks because we had to be out in an hour and fifteen minutes, should have left then and there. Fish was awful, fish and potato were cold. The corn served was from a can, the market bar was a joke! The water was warm with no... More
