Visited with my work family, food was great! I tried the Toucan Sam craft cocktail, it was similar to a Mai Tai, but with a grapefruit flavor. I liked it because I prefer the tart flavor to the excessively sweet. Everyone had a wonderful time, great space, very comfortable.

Four of us went there for their delicious tacos! And couldn't pass up their Charcuterie Plate with some great local Rishi tea. Our waiter was informative, fun, positive and overall enjoyable. Not stuffy or pretentious feeling like you might think being an upscale restaurant in the Third Ward. Can't wait to go back for some Hamachi Sashimi.

Chilly staff. Granted I was wearing t-shirt, shorts, sandals. I indicated that the bar would be fine seating for a party of 1. Frosty is best description of how I was treated, while the restaurant was largely empty of patrons. It would appear that you need to be in suit and tie to be treated like a human here. Basically...

Hinterland GastroPub is a great place for a wedding reception. I can best describe the decor as industrial / modern with a little rustic thrown in for good measure. This is not your parent's wedding hall! Which is why our daughter chose it! The appetizers were wonderful. The cheese and charcuterie plate was loved by everyone. The Chicken Liver Mousse... More

Trying to find the right place where you can get a good dinner without having to dress up (or pay city prices) can be a challenge. Hinterland solves all of these. Of course the beer is great, you'd expect nothing less. The atmosphere is fantastic as well, in the lounge, at the bar or the dining room. And the food,... More

We had reservations on a Saturday evening and were seated in the back where we could barely read the menu or see our food because of poor lighting. ( we noticed bulbs burnt out ) I did like the design of the bar & the old fashions were good! We ordered our food and the waiter came back to tell... More

Had dinner here last Friday night with another couple and their 2 girls (aged 1.5 and 3). Understanding that this isn't a place for kids, we were seated in the back corner near the kitchen, which was just fine. The waitstaff seemed unaccustomed to having children there, but overall I think did just fine. Our waitress forgot our drinks at... More

Made reservation over month ago, but restaurant did not have it. Way too expensive for pork roast, portions very small, menu very limited and ala carte. I would not recommend HInterland Erie for dinner. The web site was not accurate with menu.

My wife and I dine out a lot.....I mean a lot! We have heard of Hinterland but never visiting due to mixed reviews that Ive read on Tripadvisor. Well, we received a gift card to Hinterland for Christmas from some friends so we decided to give it a try. From the time we walked in the door we were really... More

We came here for dinner before a play at the Broadway Theatre Center. We had not been here for a while, so we decided to try it again. We had reservations so we were seated promptly. We started with a hamachi crudo, mixed greens and sauteed brussels sprouts. For main dishes, we had sturgeon and pork loin. The food was... More

Hinterland...A new hub for contemporary American cuisine in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Executive Chef Dan Van Rite and Sous Chef Dan Turek, explore a multicultural approach to cooking and eating. Their journey to create bold flavors and uncommon pairings is a daily mission at Hinterland.In order to accomplish this sojourn, we've partnered with fisherman in Honolulu, Seattle and Portland, Maine. These partnerships allow our chefs to procure fresh fish as often as two times a day. Other relationships with small, local growers and ranchers allow us to provide our customers with extraordinary game as well as hand foraged mushrooms and heirloom produce. The result is a menu that evolves with every season and changes everyday.
