I have been visiting the 4th Base since the 80's and have never had a bad time. Love the bartenders, atmosphere,drinks and the awesome food. If you have any questions just ask. The food is expensive and worth the price as they will make anything...you want, any way you want it using the best ingredients. Pick out what you want, talk with the chef about different ways to prepare your meal and ask what it will cost and there will be no surprises. Can't wait for our next trip to the 4th base after the baseball season starts.More

Hidden gem, little known excellence I used to frequent 4th Base in the 80's & 90's. Took friends there last night. Hasn't changed, except the pig is nothing more than a relic now. Food was superb. One of my guests said his steak was prepared...better than any chophouse. I would agree. 4th base is this dingy looking bar with a display cooler of the finest steaks, fish, crab legs, veggies, etc. you will find anywhere in Milwaukee. You point at what you want and tell them how you want it. Awesome atmosphere and food. Our evening was filled with mix ups. But our server (Amanda?) was gratious about everything. The cook (Joe Walsh's dopple ganger in every sense) came to apologize for the mistakes. So cool. It is pricey. Very pricey. An entre is going to set you back $50+ a plate. Add appetizer and drinks and say goodbye to a C note. CJ, you have to get Trip Advisor to change from $$-$$$ to $$$$$. Trip advisor is misleading, especially considering prices are unknown. All in all an excellent place.More

This place was within walking distance of my hotel (Best Western West) and on the way back from the Brewers game. Honestly, it wasn't until I looked at these reviews did I realize the food they were actually serving was so "high class." I just...came in for few beers -- I guess I didn't venture over to that part of the bar that was made to order. I still consider this a dive bar; no matter what food they serve. I didn't stay long with the draft beers ringing up at $5 a pop. Either way, the staff here is great! They seem to have a good crowd after games.More

Bethann, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are what you might call a sports bar-steakhouse. We serve high end meats and seafoods in the comfort of a casual neighborhood sports bar. It’s very unique, and prices of drinks will reflect...More

Visited 4th Base for the first time before & after a Brewers game. They can make any drink you ask for and help you make up a new one! The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Carrie & C.J. really know how to...take care of their customers! Will make it a point to go there again.More

I’ve been here several times and can honestly say I’ve never had a bad meal. The first time was “mystery pricing “ but we now know that and will ask how much for this or that. Just know it’s not cheap & it’s all a...la carte (sides). The atmosphere is an old bar with a ton of sports (baseball, Milwaukee Brewers) memorabilia, hence the name. Staff has always been friendly, and the drinks are good, but we usually have a beer or brandy old fashions. It’s super casual, so know you’re not going to a fancy restaurant. Dinner for two can be $50 to $75 a person, but we don’t leave hungry either. Yes, you can get a lot more food for maybe less money, but the steaks are always delicious, so we usually don’t stray from restaurants we know are going to serve up the best meats.More

We have gone a couple times to have a drink. Drinks are great and the service is fantastic. We wanted to order food but heard people next to us say how expensive our bill was and didn't want to take a chance. My husband had...the Bloody Mary and he said it was very good.More

You pick your entry out at the meat counter and then they prepare. No prices, so be prepared. If you go when there is a brewer game you will be waiting. King crab legs were awesome and cost $70
