On this my first time in Milwaukee I did the research and found very good reviews for Karl Ratzsch's. No doubt. It was wonderful from atmosphere to service to food. The sauerbraten was truly the best I've ever had — except, of course, for my German mother-in-law's. And, the price was right. We made reservations for the early bird special on Friday night. With or without a special price, I will be back. A must for German food lovers, and others since the menu offered other choices as well.
