Danielle was on top of every order. Not busy but that was good for us. No room for dessert when doggie bags went for two out of... More

My hubby and I ate here and we couldn't believe th prices they charge for food. My hubby had some kind of fish dish and portion was very small for the price they charges. I hate chicken and it was OK nothing special.

We love this place. Great varied menu, nice daily specials, well made drinks, especially the Bloody Mary's. Can't go wrong with anything. Prices are moderate and portions are satisfying. Waitresses are experienced and responsive for the most part. Main dining room has a fireplace with a large bar that is on the other side of a partial wall partition. Never... More

Very good food. Large servings on most dishes. Service was very good even though she was busy. Other servers came by to check if everything was ok. A good variety to choose from.

Stayed in a hotel close by and read about this restaurant on the internet before arriving in the area. Was not disappointed. Very friendly welcome. The menu was varied and very reasonably priced with different daily specials every day with a very good range of beers on tap from local to international. Service was very good and the food ordered... More

Located right across from the Milwaukee General Mitchell Airport, this restaurant is great for a Wisconsin Friday Fish Fry! They have other entrees as well and are very reasonably priced! They are also conveniently located to several hotels in the area.

I've eaten here three times, and it's always great food. Their Friday fish fries are to die for - especially the beer batter cod. Friends have ordered other items, and they always say it's wonderful. Service is fast, food come very quickly and staff is friendly and ready to serve. Outdoor eating in summer is great - being right across... More
