“Great Small Group Choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Located in the Pfister Hotel, this is a great choice for entertaining out of town guests and/or hosting small groups (or lunch/dinner anytime really, of course). It is a nice way to highlight the historical hotel in Milwaukee for guests, as well as an excuse to get downtown. We eat here a dozen or so times a year and, most recently, booked a smaller private dining room located on the south side of the restaurant for a family dinner of 11 guests. Their private spaces have all been recently renovated and offer windows overlooking the sidewalk, as well as very comfortable seating with lots of privacy. The managers are extremely accommodating and seem to really love their jobs, as well as appreciate that you are there (refreshing!). Our server, Danny, was excellent and EXTREMELY patient with members of my family who shall go unnamed - haha. Our group ordered a variety of food from the normal restaurant menu, including the beet salad (excellent), the halibut, various steaks, and a handful of desserts. All was delicious, with plenty of leftovers. If you are lucky enough to go when they have caramelized brussels sprouts on the menu, they are a must-try. Overall, I highly recommend Mason Street Grill for their consistency, enjoyable staff, finely-prepared fare, and comfortable, but chic location. Enjoy!

“Consistently great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I've been to Mason Street Grill a number of times and each time the food is fantastic, I've never had a bad meal. Consistency seems to usually be lacking even in better restaurants but not here - meat is always perfect, and the mushrooms are so good I can't stop thinking of them. Robust and hearty, delicious. I'll go back for a steak just to get some of these. Also it has an elegant but not stuffy feel.

“Great steaks, nice perfect atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

With live music in the bar area, and some exceptional steak quality, you won't be disappointed.Walked in to check in for our reservation and all 5 of the staff at check in welcomed us,(really felt welcome), they have something on the menu for everyone, form affordable to high quality and still priced right. The staff did not rush us and we had a really enjoyable time, and a great dinner.

“A Grand Gathering Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

My daughter and I try to get together at The Mason Street Grill, located in The Pfister Hotel, once a month. The food is always tasty and done "just right". Everyone is always friendly and service is efficient. Remember to park in the Pfister parking structure and get your parking ticket validated prior to ordering. Friday and Saturday nights it is quite crowded; at times it makes for good "people watching".

Great local trio the Monday night we were there. Good service, crab cakes and salad were perfect after a long drive. Friendly and professional service
