“Best Bloody Mary's & Burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Known for their Bloody Mary's...I had to check them out to see if they could rival some of the Bloody Mary's from New Orleans....THEY DID!!! The drink was amazing...it was garnished with an olive, pickle, pearl onion, green onion, beef stick, cheese cube, shrimp, mushroom and more....it was a masterpiece of a drink and tasty delicious!! An entree in a glass...! The burgers were amazing too...they even have a Cali burger fashioned after the Inn & Out Burgers (West Coast)...all I can say is bring your party shoes....it is "happening". A MUST SEE & DO IN MILWAUKEE!!!

“Overrated!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

The food was good but I can't say they have the best burgers in town when you have grown up on Solly's. The service was excellent and the value is great. Would eat there again but not on a Friday night too crowded and the college kids swarm up in cabs.

“Been there, done that”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My son, a Marquette grad, claims Sobelman's is the best Milwaukee burger, a claim hard to make without trying many of the hotspots, which he has done. I tried the double chesseburger with all the cheese, bacon, etc and can rate it as a totally decadent and flavorful experience. It was crowded at noon with students mixed with business locals, but service was great. Worth the drive from Illinois to try at least once.

“Good pub grub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Went for lunch on a busy Sunday. Crowd was mix of 20-40 year olds with families, and was surprised at the number for lunch. Fortunately we ordered carry out which only took 15 minutes, and wait for dine is was 30 minutes. Food was good, but disappointed the quantity was limited for the price. The cheeseburger was medium at best, other burgers were better but my high expectations based upon the best burger in Milw didn't match my experience. Might have been due to crowd...

“Burger Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We went because of the fireworks on the burger for a birthday. The burgers are pretty bland, its the creative concoction of added ingredient flavors that makes the place special. This is especially true for the very average tasting bloody mary with tons of things sticking out of the top. The seating was really tough during a Brewer Game night, plus when will places get the picture that no one is comfortable wedged between the bar and a table on stools. Give me at minimum something to lean back on, a wall or chair or something. It's really a small place that makes it feel very local.
