The food is excellent as well as the staff. Try their Brandy Old Fashion. It is the best I have ever drank. Also, their after dinner Peppermint Patti is the perfect desert.

Figured this restaurant was central for meeting Milwaukee guests from CA and Green Bay guests from CT.....the CA guests had not tasted a lot of Wisconsin favorites.....so our waitress was most accommodating and helpful for children and adults. We tried a German pork sandwich that was delish and the brat nachos made with thinly sliced fresh potato fried chips with... More

If you are looking for very good German food, try the Braising Pan. The Schnitzel and sauerbraten are excellent! The restaurant also offers a wide selection of other foods as well. The Friday Fish Fry is very popular.

We love the Braising Pan for Sunday brunch as their pancakes are out of this world. Yesterday we tried the Friday fish fry. Loved the deep fried fish and baked potato. Rolls are amazingly good. The baked dill cod was a bit bland on this trip. Their homemade applesauce is fabulous! Our severs are always very responsible and very pleasant!... More

We stopped by for lunch, not knowing what to expect We were greeted with enthusiasm, seated promptly, waited on without delay. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Each of us ordered a sandwich with a side of coleslaw. ( Other sides could have been a potato choice or a cup of soup.) Each of our sandwiches was served on... More

We went with another couple on Friday night. It was packed. I suggest a reservation. Fish fry was really good, chicken Marcella was great and the Salmon my wife tells me was really good. They serve a lot of heavy German food too. Service was great and the Andes mint pie was to die for. When you are done eating... More

Dined with another couple on a Saturday night. Glad we made reservations, as it filled quickly. The little chalk sandwich board on the table with the name of the reservation is a nice touch. Rachel, our server, was attentive and hustling. We had the prime rib, chicken marsala, smothered sirloin and schnitzel, with grasshoppers for dessert. With the exception of... More
