It's funny to be there. Casual ambience and the place where you can unwind. Titles of the dishes are funny. The place where you can just chill

Located on the south side. Lots of places to go for a good fish fry in Milwaukee and this is one of them. Beer battered cod and fries and both were good. Also has a good bar scene

I like this place because of the daily drink specials. But fell in love with it due to the great carribean Food. The Jerk seasoning they have is just like it is in Jamaica.
