The food was ok. I had a burger and wasn't impressed. The flirtini was amazing. It was strong and flavorful. This is definitely one of the top drinks I've had. The waiter was great and very accommodating since it was a big group (almost 20 of us) that asked for separate checks.

The place is more upscale than the average Milwaukee pub and beer hall atmosphere. It tries a bit too much for pretense but the food is decent and the location with ample parking are great. The menu reads a bit "off" (try deciphering why there are 6 versions of pork chops and whether these are sandwich or entree items--good luck),... More

I have loved Elsa's since college and it has not changed. The food is great along with the atmosphere. If you are in downtown Milwaukee it is a must.

I have been coming to this place since I was 14 years old and I am 42 now. I have always loved the ever changing decor form local different artists and the food. When I was younger my favorite was the Grilled cheese because of how gooey it was and the thick bacon too. As an adult I have tried... More

Last time I visited Elsa's I was totally disgusted by the 'eye ball' art on the wall to the point it took me over 6 months to go back. On a recent lunch visit the eyes were thankfully gone but the poor/slow service and overpriced food was still the same. Having been at Elsa's several times all with similar results,... More

I've been coming here for the past 12 years. This place is also famous for where it is located and for their wings. Everyone knows this restaurant if you want the hot spots of downtown. It's right by the bars so it's also great to stop in to eat before going to the bars down the street. It's also right... More

We went on a busy Saturday night and they found us a table at the front of the restaurant right away. We had a nice view of the park across the street. Service was quick and well done. We began with a plate of grilled veggies and a yummy dipping sauce. We'd return for this dish alone, which also comes... More

I've always heard great things about this place but I've been here twice and wasn't impressed either time. Food was bland and overpriced.

The Greek burger is definitely my favorite item they offer. Can't go wrong with any of the choices here. Burgers are so juicy and good.
