We looked forward to eating at this highly reviewed restaurant, as we love Eastern European food, but we were sorely disappointed. Our colas were flat. Our bread was stale. We waited 35 minutes for our first course. We waited 60 minutes for our entrees. The wait persons were very nice with their explanations. "The chefs make everything from scratch." "We... More

We were visiting our son who lives here and his wife suggested trying this restaurant as something different from the Italian, Chinese, Indian, and Mexican eateries we typically frequent. The last time I ate Serbian cuisine was on a visit to Belgrade several years ago. The building itself, built in 1897 for the Schlitz Brewery, is on the National Register... More

I don't get here often enough but I am never disappointed when I do. Its old world charm, extensive menu and caring staff make every visit memorable. Five friends gathered recently for a celebratory dinner. We ordered our spinach bureks ahead which saves a little time. We started with the Serbian salad - and their bread. So delicious. Then the...

Great place, very good food and service. Would've been just a tad bit better if they took credit cards :) But we love-love-love it anyway! Recommended to all our friends, and they enjoyed it enormously.

We got lucky and got there early, about 4:30. We didn't have reservations, but they had one table for us. We watched others get turned away. I had roasted duck, wow it was so good. I got a whole lot more meat than I expected. Everything on the plate way out of this world good. The atmosphere is very relaxing... More

It has been quite some time since I visited this wonderful restaurant, so I chose a date a while back. I moved away from Milwaukee over 25 years ago, but have tried to visit when possible. Now I find myself moving 1500 miles south, so my husband and i are saying goodbye to some of our wonderful old haunts in... More

Fantastic old structure right off the freeway. I always get the burek, which you have to wait an hour for, but well worth it. Great place.

The Serbian food here is top-notch. If you want the burek, it does take a while, so you might want to call ahead if you are in a hurry. However; the atmosphere is so pleasant that I never mind ordering there and waiting. The goulash is also wonderful. We've brought numerous friends and family members with us to dine here... More

Ordered the beef/rice stuffed peppers with potato dumplings in a tomato based sauce--from the first bite to the last bite it was phenomenal. It brought back memories of my grandmas' cooking. I sampled other dishes ordered by my family and they were equally as delicious. The atmosphere is great--south side Milwaukee, low key, historic, and homey. Great service, great food... More

Amazing food, terrific service and a historic structure nestled in a quaint old neighborhood, what's not to love? Pride oozes from the woodwork of this former 19th-century tavern as the staff modestly boasts of their 60 years of turning out authentic European fare. I was introduced to goulash and chicken paprikash by a former diplomat when I lived in Washington,... More
