A beautiful quaint area that combines restaurants and beautiful architecture. I don't visit Milwaukee as often as I used to, but when I do, I always enjoy this area.

Some cute stores and restaurants/cafes but nothing special. Chain stores are slowly creeping in. Best thing was the Public Market, with fun food offerings throughout.

I love this area. There are several good restaurants on every block, shops with a variety of different types of items and close to the River Walk. A very nice way to spend several hours!

If you're in Milwaukee, this is a fun neighborhood walk through. It has an incredible market and many fun bars and restaurants. Most bars and restaurants have outdoor seating. It is a vibrant place to visit and a short walk from the Pfister Hotel.

When we first moved to Milwaukee, some twenty-five years ago, there wasn't much going on in the Third Ward. Now, it is a hub for shops, restaurants, and of course, the Milwaukee Public Market. Clearly, this is an up-and-coming area of the City, and promises...More

I would go to the art museum and eat there. Pretty lake views even if art isn't your thing. And there are a couple of places to eat there that have good quality food.
