We ate at this "Wisconsin Supper Club" recently with friends (2 couples) and had a mostly great experience. Love the supper club ambience, hearty food served and generous drinks. I had the Veal Piccatta - very good; little richer than I've ever had it before, but you can't go wrong with a little heavy cream! Others in my party had the prime rib special, and they all enjoyed it. The server was very friendly and helpful, but could have been a bit more attentive. Had to flag her down a couple of times. The only problem was with paying the bill. They have a strange policy of not splitting checks (and that's OK) but also not accepting more than one credit card per table. Really? Our bill was over $200 for the four of us, and we didn't have cash. We eat out quite often with friends and have never run into this policy before. After astonishment and some discussion, the server did volunteer to split it but it wasn't without some issue later with both our credit card companies. We really hate it that we can't go back to this lovely restaurant, but will not as long as they maintain this policy. It's a big mistake, folks!

Just went to Johnny Manhattan's. Had not been there for a while. We were pleasantly surprised to be able to sit on their new patio. It was lovely. Quiet. The wait staff was very friendly. We had the "all you can eat" fish fry, and it was just that. More of the fried and/or baked fish, more fries, or potato pancakes and even more of their salads (2 pasta salads and coleslaw). All was excellent. They are going to put in heaters also, so plan to go again in the fall. I would have rated this 5 stars, but it is noisy on the inside, but the outside patio is great. It did take a while for the wait staff to serve us at times, but I attribute that to the newness of the patio. They were very friendly, and we really were able to "eat all we could". We will definitely be back.

No shortage of food when you dine here! We enjoyed the relish tray & fresh bread that was part of the entrees along with soup or salad, starch, and vegetable. Dinners are about $23-$35. Mon. Through Thursday they offer special dinners for 2 for $25 which are a lighter fare without all the extras. I had shrimp and my husband had the fish, which we both found delicious.

Johnny Manhattan's is a wonderful little steakhouse in charming Hubertus. I'm a big fan of downtown Milwaukee's restaurant scene, but it is sometimes it is nice to take a drive in the forest and hills before dinner. JM's is a great place in its own right, and is only enhanced by the location.

The atmosphere was wonderful: an old school steakhouse feel, with dark woodwork and walls brimming with Rat Pack and Marilyn Monroe paraphernalia. The wait staff was knowledgeable, down-to-earth, and very helpful.

The wine list was not very exhaustive, but the Cab and the Zin we had were great. For an appetizer, the escargot was very nice and the portions generous. We both ordered steaks (NY strip and the fillet). Both were cooked perfectly as ordered and delicious.

Although the value was not exceptional, the dinner was worth the expense. Other details: JM's can be busy. I made reservations for Sat evening a day in advance, and was barely able to get a table for two. Plan ahead!

A great experience. 4.5 stars.
