Description: The Rumpus Room is a European style gastro pub in downtown Milwaukee that combines adventurous but approachable, comforting food and one of the best craft beer and cocktail programs in the city. The Rumpus Room offers a laid-back casual dining experience and features a spacious bar, an intimate dining room, a charcuterie area and a separate private event space. The menu emphasizes local, sustainable ingredients whenever possible, and the bar offers more than 20 beers on tap and more than 100 in bottles, plus a craft cocktail menu that changes with the seasons. One of the best restaurants in Milwaukee's lively downtown entertainment district, Rumpus Room frequently welcomes theater-goers before or after a performance at the nearby Marcus Center for the Performing Arts.

“Great for Sharing Appetizers”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We had time to kill between and wedding ceremony and reception so we walked over to our favorite gastropub. We had the place to ourselves and planned on getting a couple of scotch eggs. Well this turned into scotch eggs, bone marrow, and octopus. Yum. Everything was awesome. Scotch eggs have become popular around town, but I have yet to have one as good as here. Highly recommended.

This is one of our favorite places in town. Great food, very reasonably priced and a great beer menu. A must stop if you're in town for the weekend.

“Great Place for a Steak”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Family stopped in Feb 2012 for Dinner. Really loved the layout and food and beverage selections. Classy place takes your visit up a couple of notches. Next time in town will certainly stop in again. Bar also looks like a great place for locals to stop in and unwind.

“Mmmmmmm!”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We stumbled onto this place in 2012, liked it so much, that we made a point to go back on our annual pilgrimage to Milwaukee in 2013. Great food, great drinks, knowledgable servers. Wisconsin cheeeeeeees boards. A zillion beers, etc. Nuff said.
