During this time we are trying to support small businesses. We went for breakfast after reading some great reviews. Breakfast was okay. Not bad but just okay. None of the employees were wearing masks and there was no social distancing. Everyone has their part to...play.More

Stayed nearby overnight for work, and it was cold!, so I was looking for something close. I had never heard of a 'floating' burger, and in hindsight I would've known it as a rise & shine or a sunrise burger. By any name, it was...delicious! Great service at the bar seating. Fun place.More

The breakfast was delicious! The Classic French Toast was awesome. The hashbrowns were cooked with peppers and cheese. Yummy The restaurant was nice. The service was spectacular. Our waitress came with milk, coffee, and water without asking! Look no further for a wonderful spot for...breakfast.More

I was visiting from Wales, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was pretty good to, no complaints. Would go back again.

We both agree that the staff was very friendly on both our visits on Friday and Saturday—hotel was down the street. His eggs Benedict, beer cheese soup, and floating burger were very good. The spotted cow ale was light, wheat-based ale. The eggs were nicely...poached. The server brought fruit since the hash browns were not ready rather than allowing eggs Benedict to get cold and congeal. My meals were the Reuben with fries and the biscuits with gravy and two eggs. The fries were outstanding. The sauce on the Rueben was too sweet and the meat was fatty. The biscuits and gravy was awful! The server took them off our bill. They had to cook a new batch of beer cheese soup so my soup was not as thick as his, but it was very good.More

Simple easy place for breakfast or lunch. Huge portions, good prices. The staff was good, but not overly friendly. It is conveniently located neat hotels and Wisconsin Center.

Close to downtown, Marquette U, the Fiserv Forum and Sumnerfair. Parking can be tricky, but the food is straight up and worth the price.

Unfortunately there are not too many breakfast options located near the Brewhouse inn & Suites so the front desk recommended build a breakfast which was about 8 blocks away. The staff were very nice, food average, price above average
