The atmosphere was wonderful and relaxing even with a full restaurant. Beautiful surroundings and a meal I won't soon forget. Also try the Bloody Mary's best I've ever had, the spices were perfect. Thanks so much for an unforgettable brunch!

Really enjoyed their range of food, drinks, and desserts. Went there at all points of the day, and ended up having drinks on the patio late into the night. All of the servers were wonderful- will definitely be going back during the next Milwaukee stay!

I had lunch at The Knick last weekend. I dined on delicious gazpacho, and grilled cheese on whole grain bread, with bacon and tomato. It was wonderful comfort food.

My wife and I stopped in once we settled into our our Hotel Plaza room. I ordered the NY strip and she the avocado burger. Both were excellent!!! The service was prompt and attentive. We enjoyed ourselves and wouldn’t hesitate to eat there again.
