“Very good”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

This restaurant was conveniently located near our hotel. I had the margarita flat bread which was delicious. The flat bread was the perfect texture and cooked perfectly. My fiance had the ribs and they were delicious. The meat fell right off the bone. Nachos were crispy and plentiful.

“Sketchy service”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

The bar area was hopping (it was March 16th and St. Patrick's Day Weekend). Very loud and smoky. The hostess stand is located in the bar area so you have to go through the bar area to be seated in the dining room. Good news -- you can't hear the bar noise in the restaurant. It was busier this Saturday compared to the last time we visited. The restaurant got about 2/3 full at it busiest (still not good for a Saturday night). Service started at very prompt with drink and food orders. We forgot to request the bread (it is wonderful but you must request it or they don't bring it). The onion soup I ordered had lots of cheese on it but no piece of bread at the bottom (as most do) and very few pieces of onion in it. My Caesar Salad was good. My companions liked the fish and chips (on special) and the veggie wrap (huge portion). After our food came our waiter lost interest in us. Had to ask for a water refill and we didn't see him again til he brought our check. Didn't ask if we wanted coffee or dessert. We ended up sitting there and visiting and was never once checked on again (perhaps we changed our mind for coffee or dessert). Ended up going to Milwaukee Custard in the same area for dessert. Just don't understand why the service is so inconsistent. They have good food though!

“Slow and quiet”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

My family went to backyard on a Saturday afternoon and the place was about half full. I cannot express how slow the service was. The waiter was polite, but would disappear for 20min periods. The foods was delicious, I had the Cajun chicken sandwich and my wife had the Reuben. I would say that our two sandwiches took about 50min to arrive after we ordered them. Also, it was near impossible to get a drink refill. An additional complaint would be that the restaurant is too quiet; they need some music for ambiance. If it wouldn't have been for the exceptionally slow service I would probably return in the future. As it is ill take a pass.

“Great for Football Games”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

AWSOME AWSOME, Great for families and groups for a great game of any sports. Everyone got along with each other despite the teams they were cheering for. Could get rid of the smoking thing. But again its a sports bar, I will deal with it.
