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

I have lunch here from time to time. Many times a good overall experience but has been totally inconsistent lately. Service usually unprofessional but courteous. Lacks training. Same dish can be good or bad depending on the day! Price is ok but thry can do a better job overall.

We've often enjoyed the Fish Fry on Friday evenings but stopped in one afternoon for a late lunch. Didn't want to spoil dinner, so we just ordered a cup of the onion soup and split a sandwich. This five-onion soup is the best we've ever had...and that includes a lot of places!

This a gem of a facility. The food is very good and especially the salad bar with very healthy choices. The prices are fair and for what you receive a good deal. We had a server buy the name of Debrashi who was exceptional and possibly the best I have had to date at any restaurant. It was a joy... More

The best thing was our server. Very nice, very friendly and attentive. We had an Entertainment coupon for lunch which would give us one $10 item for free if another item of equal or lesser value was purchased. We figured why not. I had the reuben. I was delighted as I started to eat it: tasty, warm, corn beef wasn't... More

Solid, tasty food. Friendly service. New Chef has apparently been an excellent choice, chooses fresh ingredients and it shows.

We've dined here before, Friday Fish Fry(s), Easter, Thanksgiving etc., etc. This Thanksgiving we had to wait to be seated. They seemed a little frazzled. The service was very nice, re-filling water as needed etc. The buffet was well stocked and had so many choices, salads, shrimp, smoked salmon and hot varieties, all well kept. Cold items chilled, and hot... More
