Inside dining Sunday 8/22/2021. Ordered Harvest Salad. Beautiful presentation however within 30 minutes I ended up with severe Food Poising. Be careful. Service lacked big time from ordering to actual delivery .

The bar staff was very attentive and congenial. Reservations are not accepted. There is outdoor seating. For those that can not do stairs, maybe 2 tables available on lower landing, but one can eat at the bar. Restrooms nice, clean and well stocked. Our waitress...was not exactly friendly. Appetizers were delivered promptly but dinner took a little longer than expected. Portion size more that enough. On the evening we visited the credit card/debit card machine was having issues. We waited almost 45 minutes and finally decided we actually had enough cash to pay our bill. We would have greatly appreciated some communication from the manager or the hostess on the situation, but none came. The dining room area was smaller than we expected. Menu has a variety and there is a gluten free menu available. Our party had the gluten free ship tacos which were fresh and received a good review, 3 prime ribs all fine, a meatloaf which was a large portion, but lacked on flavor, a burger with sweet potato fries - burger was good, sweet potato fries tasted good but were cold. We tried it for dinner. May stop in for drinks one time in the future, but we won't go out of our way.More

Short wait in the bar, friendly people. Our server was a delight. Both of our meals were excellent and reasonably priced. I would certainly go back.

Service was great. Food was great. Homemade items on the menu. The restaurant did not take it out of the freezer and heat it up. They are actually cooking things. We will defiantly plan to eat here again as we pass through town.

My wife and I recently went to dinner here. When we arrived, they were on a wait so we went to the bar for a drink. Classy bar! Drinks were tasty. We both had the Blood Orange Margarita. The first table that was available was...on the patio and considering the beautiful weather we jumped at the chance. Very pleasant atmosphere. My wife had the fish tacos, and I had the fried fish. Very tasty. Overall, service was great and we definitely will recommend this place to our friends.More

We went to this restaurant to try somewhere new in town. This place supposedly won a trip advisor award. WE WILL NEVER GO BACK!!!! And I think the awards they have for n the wall must be fake!!! The service was horrible. We were there...over 2 hours. The waitress brought the wrong orders & was so slow. My friend got his order & was done eating before she brought my corrected order. Never refilled drinks. The manager never stopped by either. Then she had a major attitude when I just cxld my order. My friend’s order wasn’t correct either but he was starving so he just ate it. SERIOUSLY......DON’T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!!More

On a stay in Janesville, I asked the hotel staff where to go for dinner. They suggested Milwaukee Grill - “No one’s ever said they had a bad meal there.” So true! Lots of variety on the menu - salads, burgers, chicken, fish, steak. Great...beer choices both local and the usual. I started dinner with a New Glarus Spotted Cow and fried cheese curds (when in Wisconsin!). Nice breading and light fry! Very good curds! For dinner was the Wisconsin Fish Fry - again nicely breaded and light fry. With mashed garlic potatoes - creamy and tasty. Nice casual Wisconsin restaurant with a home feeling and a friendly staff. Good bar area too.More
