This place has great food and service. It’s a smaller bar but they make you feel comfortable. Love their chili dogs but everything it good! Lots of TV’s for game watching too.

Consistent. Delicious. Fairly priced. I crave the buffalo chicken twister! I sincerely hope this establishment does not go the way of the majority of North Avenue!

The place was a total local dive bar. Old school feel, taps on the wall, old pictures and plenty to choose from. Great selection of true craft beers from Wisconson

We stopped at this interesting-looking establishment while touring Milwaukee. It's not a very big place, and since was a perfect day, we opted to sit outside. We were waited on right away, and the waiter exhibited a real "can-do" attitude (willingness to accommodate any requests...More

We'll be back. Food and service were very good. We had the brisket sandwich and the Irish Tacos. The I Tacos were GReat - I plan to get them again next time.

While the service was good, we found the food to be bland, which was surprising given the sandwich I ordered (the chicken pepperoni) had many ingredients on it. My husband ordered the Milly Beef and it was bland too. He felt the beer cheese had...More
