AJ Bombers was great. We ere visiting MKE, as a group of 8 ranging from very young, to pretty old. We needed a place that could supply something for everyone, and this was it. We had a bit of a wait at the start, (You...can't reserve), but the staff were super helpful and managed to work a table together for us much more quickly than expected. Drinks were great and we worked our way through some peanuts as we waited. Burger selection was outstanding, and one member of our party, a burger 'Expert', suggested it was the best he had ever had. All the food was great, atmosphere was awesome and the AJ Bombers staff all exceptional. Would absolutely recommendMore

You walk in and first thing you notice is peanut shells everywhere. Then you see their unique delivery system to get the peanuts to your table which is fun and loud! We had cheese curds to start which were delicious. Then cheeseburgers. Tasty though a...wee bit on the dry side. Then the real treat was the custard! We wished we would have started with that! It was that good. The bartender and waitress were funny. All in all a good place to hVe a beer and CUSTARD! 😜More

Theme restaurant. Servers were friendly but not on task. Waited a long time for a second drink and then an even longer time for our food. Food was at best uninspiring.More

We enjoyed our lunch here! We had burgers that were good, not great and found there to be a nice selection of beers. Service was prompt and polite. We really enjoyed the fun decor and peanut bombers.

Good for one time visit. Went there with children. Ideally not a children’s restaurant. If you have a peanut allergy, this is not the place for you as they drop peanuts at your table in the shell and shells all over the floor. Food was...nothing spectacular and drinks are pricey.More

We parked across the street. Waited about 15 minutes to be seated, then 25 minutes for our food to arrive. The kids loved the thinly cut onion rings. They serve $4 burgers during happy hour. (2-7pm). The ambiance is eye candy. It’s a unique place...all right.More

The burgers were nothing special, service was not the greatest, cheese curds were too greasy, and despite creating your own order on paper they got that wrong. Really is not noteworthy at all. We will not be returning. There was nothing at this place to...make us say "wow" My burger was tiny, fries were bland, husband chicken sandwich was so thin for the price and he ordered bacon and got one piece of bacon split in half, and you paid extra for it.

We loved our visit to AJ Bombers! We were surprised at the peanut bomb at the beginning, but it was fun. We ordered two appetizers, the fried pickles and the cheese curds, which were both good, but I definitely preferred the cheese curds! We also...each ordered the drink special--the Big Gulp, which was a booze-filled root beer float with authentic Wisconsin custard. It was huge, but delicious! We each kind of built our own burgers--all very different, but we each loved them. I ordered the onion strings with magic seasoning and let me tell you--they were magic! They might be the best onion strings I've ever had. We were all stuffed and happy when we left AJ Bombers and would definitely recommend it!More

We went in search of the perfect Bloody Mary and, wow, we weren’t disappointed! Great cheese curds and the buffalo chicken egg rolls were perfection, too! If you go for quirky atmosphere, this is your place... unless you have a peanut allergy or an aversion...to a fun bomber that flies to your table and drops roasted peanuts down a chute and into your bowl! When I travel it seems that there is always one place I regret leaving behind when I return home. For Milwaukee, AJ Bombers was that place!More

Good choice! First reason for liking this place, they serve Pepsi products! I chose fried cheese curds as appetizer, sauce was spicy for me, but still good. Had a burger, the Schlitz onions made it taste fabulous! Peanut delivery by a "bomber" was cool! We...left our mark before we left!More

We called ahead to make a reservation but it didn't seem to guarantee us a seat right away from what I recall.
