Family-Style Restaurants in Downtown Milwaukee??

Hi! We're visiting Milwaukee this weekend when several children (8-16 yrs). I would appreciate any advice on any good, not too expensive, family restaurants in Downtown Milwaukee? We're staying at the Pfister. THANKS!

Buca's (Buca di beppo) is an Italian place that serves dinner family style. That might be a good option. It is on Van Buren about 5 blocks north of the Pfister. The Cafe at the Pfister is a not too expensisve casual option too.

There is a food court in the Grand Ave mall on 3rd and Wisconsin that might be good if you are looking for a luinch option. There is also an Apllebees at the mall entrance.
