The hotel is fabulous (see review) but I think you can definitely find better dining options. The menu is small without a lot of options. My wife ordered a steak medium to medium well and what we received was a small piece of overcooked leather. We also ordered the grilled asparagus as a side. $12 for a few asparagus spears... More

Smyth is located in the Iron Horse Hotel, offering great coffee, a good tea selection and good local breakfast fare as well as healthy food options (for example, egg white omelettes). I opted for the egg white omelette with mushrooms spinach and ham, which rye toast and cheese grits (home fries and fruit were other side options). All food was... More

I don't eat meat so 1/2 the menu was out for me - but service, ambiance, and mimosas were awesome. I sat at the bar because I was solo on business. Tiramisu Pancakes were to die for! Will dream about these again! Order one pancake at a time!

The food was good and you got a lot, but for a breakfast it was very pricey. The hotel didn't give a breakfast.

I rather liked their theme of old heavy weathered wooden plank and beam, and ironwork of nouveau urban edge. While their Old Fashioned could be the stuff of legend, it’s not enough to save the experience. Their menu is thinly populated. Some of the selections sounded interesting, but there were simply not a great deal from which to choose. There... More

We arrived quite early and had to wait for the restaurant to open. Nicely designed operation. I had the Cioppino and loved it. Portion was small but delicious. The ladies both had steaks and loved them. One came with their version of hassellback potatoes and it was terrific. Skipped dessert due to time constraints. Wine list needs improvement.

We heard so many fantastic things about the brunch, we had to go! Huge selections, no more endless Mimosas, there is a limit now. Wait staff is friendly and prompt to refill drinks. Very clean. Slightly overpriced but can't beat the atmosphere!

I loved everything about this place. The ambiance, the food, the drinks, etc. I stayed at the Iron Horse for business and the restaurant was perfect for meeting trendy clients -- and get interior decorating ideas for home! Stop in! Milwaukee does food right!

Was a local vacation and both my wife and I were amazed with the food. It was our first time but will not be our last time. The pork and the duck were so well prepared and presented. We were both inpressed
