It was a bit chilly to sit outside but I would go back in the summer to sit on the deck on the river. I grabbed a seat at the bar and bartenders must have been in shift change. Took a minute to get a...menu, a hello. I ordered a flight of beers and dinner. I spent a bit of time here, resting my feet and taking in the place. Nice atmosphere, food was pretty good bar food.More

I'm not one to complain, but this was next level. I was dining at this restaurant last night when I found a HUGE black spider INSIDE my salad, it crawled out from under a leaf as I was taking a bite. This spider was nickel...sized with a huge black body. It was so bad it made my entire table sick to their stomach and we were unable to finish eating anything. To make matters worse our server did not ask if I wanted anything else to eat, and did not check on us for a very long time even though we wanted to leave immediately. No manager came out, although I suspect everybody saw the spider because once she brought the plate back the kitchen staff and waitresses were looking at our table from the kitchen. Overall, bad dining experience and I am now sick to my stomach whenever I think about eating a salad from a restaurant.More

We had a great time, fish and chips, a burger, a grilled cheese, some of the best cheese curds in the area. The Brewers were on the big screens and it got a little busier after the game ended. Our server was absolutely fantastic, gave...some good recommendations that were well appreciated. Good Beers too.More

We stopped in for a beer prior to dining elsewhere. Great selection and we went with the Octoberfest. It was great. Look forward to stopping another time for a beer and food.

Interesting beers and good food. We had a table away from others, so it was abit private. Nice outside view of the river. It was fun. We did alot of talking so I didn't get a chance to walk around but the place looked nice.

Business dinner with beer sampling. My Favorite beer was the Admiral Porter. We had the Humus and Pretzel appetizers, both fresh and tasty. It was a cold windy night so I decided to try the Pot Pie. It was cooked to perfection and excellent. Our...waiter was great. Very attentive without being a pest.More

Very nice place to eat lunch. Our waitress was Ashlynn and was fantastic. The mac and cheese with the pulled pork which was one of her recommendations was fantastic.

We had a most enjoyable drink and light dinner sitting overlooking the river with the evening sun on the balcony - very tranquil and the atmosphere picked up as the evening progressed. The chicken pot pie was good - as was the IPA!

We ate dinner on the deck overlooking the river on which we had kayaked earlier in the day. They have a great variety of beers and ales, with full and mini "flights" available. The food was great also. We stayed to the north in the...heart of downtown, and had a pleasant walk to this location in the Third Ward. Afterward we strolled around the Third Ward some more.More

It's in a great location over the Bridge leading to the Historic Third Ward. It was a gorgeous afternoon so we decided to eat outside, along the river. Food and service was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Milwaukee....you will not be...disappointed. There's plenty of room inside if the weather is not cooperating.More

My kids took me out for my birthday and wanted a nice place with a view. I was the beginning of August and the weather was great so we wanted to eat outside. They picked the Milwaukee Ale House. We picked a table overlooking the...Milwaukee river and the Riverwalk. The view was great the food was great and the waitress was great. Could not have asked for a better experience.
