“Pleasantly Surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I was in charge of organizing a work party at this venue. The event was extremely well organized and the catered food was very good. We had a few individuals in our party order off of the dinner menu, and their food looked amazing. For this reason I visted about a week after our party and tried the burger on a pretzel bun with macarroni atop. This burger was awesome! I have not had an opportunity to try much other food but I will definitely be heading back. There area also TONS of ping pong tables for those interested. VERY FUN!

“Fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

Stumbled upon this place while in the 3rd ward window shopping and we were hungry. We had a blast playing ping pong for 1/2 an hour. Then we ordered a very disappointing pizza for lunch. Next time we'll try something else!

“We LOVE this place!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Spin is fantastic in both concept and execution! It is one of the few places around that are as much fun to take kids to (if they play ping pong) as it is to go to with adults. Great drinks and food that is quite good (a notch or two above bar food for sure). We will go back again and again!

“Very fun experience, food is so-so”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were a party of 5 on a Thursday night, 3 adults and 2 kids. We ordered 2 appetizers, 4 entrees, 3 drinks, 2 sodas and 1 dessert, plus 1/2 hr on a ping pong table. Total was $112 which seemed reasonable. The food was so-so; appetizers better than entrees. The ping pong was really fun and the setup is ideal. Employees scoop up all of the ping pong balls and refresh your basket so you don't spend all of your time chasing down errant ping pong balls. They also have pool and darts.
Kids under 21 can be there w/an adult until 9pm, after 9pm you must be 21 or older. They have a good selection of local craft beers, and the chef told us that they buy most of their food/ingredients locally as well.
There is a parking structure right next door.
All in all we had a great time, with the kids thinking it was very fun. They play music, but it was a good mix and not too loud. It added to the party atmosphere.

“Group fun!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

We had adult kids and college-aged kids home for the holidays. Reserved 2 ping pong tables for an hour with another family and had a ball. Played some round-robin doubles, had drinks and an overall great time! Those sitting out got to drink. Everyone did not know each other at the beginning, but you learn a lot about others while in a sporting competition. Perfect as an ice-breaker. We had gone to dinner somewhere else first, so can't comment on the food. Drinks were no more expensive than other places in Milwaukee in the Third Ward. We will do this again. I had been there before, which is why I suggested we go there.
