“Had the $39.95 Special - INCREDIBLE FOR THE MONEY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Now they have a new special. Just went there on Saturday.

For $39.95 you can get a 5-oz Lobster Tail with an 8-oz Sirloin Steak, OR 6 Shrimps prepared in several different ways with the 5-oz Lobster tail AND it includes one bar drink apiece plus dessert. The dinner also comes with choice of soup or salad, with sides of potato and vegetables. All this for $39.95 FOR TWO PEOPLE - not one!

The food was great. My wife had the Sirloin Steak with the Lobster Tail and I had 6 shrimp (scampi style) with the Lobster tail. The main entree came out with mixed vegetables and well as a choice of potato (mashed, baked, hash browns or boiled).

You cannot beat this deal for two. It also includes a drink apiece plus dessert for each person.

Went to a different restaurant (Francesca's) the day before and got a LOT less for double the price. Only got a main entree (no side vegetables. potato or soup or salad) and one drink for $81. No dessert with that either. Food was good at both restaurants BUT Brass Key offers so much more - at half the price. A Must go-to restaurant.

“$29.95 SPECIAL - CAN'TBEAT IT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

You get a Surf and Turf dinner for one and a choice of poultry dinner for one PLUS a bar drink apiece PLUS dessert for $29.95 plus tax. How can you go wrong? The Lobster is a four-ounce tail and the steak is 8 ounces. My wife had that and I had the Chicken Piccata which was excellent.

They have a great selection of fresh fish and all the prices are really reasonable. Outside of the downtown area - more of a neighborhood place but a great place to go if you want good food at a really reasonable price.

“GREAT FISH PLACE THAT FEW KNOW ABOUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2010

If you want fresh fish, scallops or even Lobster tail in Milwaukee, this is the place to go. Have gone there many times and every time the dinner is great. Mediterranean style Salmon is excellent. The combination plates are excellent. Lobster tail and 1/2 pound of Crab Legs. Lobster tail and other combos ALL excellent.

Prices are super reasonable for what you get. All dinners include dessert - NO extra charge. Found it by accident, now we go up there whenever we drive to Milwaukee.
Drinks very reasonable.

Always nicely decorated for Christmas, Halloween, Valentine's Day, Easter.
Servers are very attentive. A special place for a very reasonable price.
