This place has great food, unique offerings (alligator!) and the beer selection is excellent. Older building but only adds to the charm.

take note, even if it looks like they arent open, they probably are. Entry is dark, no lights show outside.

Well the food is better than your average but our waitress Stefanie was exceptional. She read us perfectly understanding our mood right away. She was able to find us hockey on one of the TVs even though Marquette was playing. Gave great recommendations and was on top of the speed of service. When you're on the road a lot good service can trump good food.

After strolling down the riverwalk for a couple of miles early on a Saturday morning we were hungry for breakfast. So we hit the streets and found the only open place was the Upper 90. Don't let the outside appearance turn you off. They opened at 6:30 am for the soccer matches live from Europe and be the time we got there around 8:30 the locals were pretty well lubricated. We were welcomed by Rick who fixed our drinks, patiently took our order (we're very picky) and convinced the chef to fix our omelets with only the egg whites. The restrooms were spotless and services was great and the food was first class. Please don't take the kiddies.

On a weekend trip to Milwaukee, decided to stop in. This is a newer bar so it doesn't have as many reviews as other places. But let me tell you it's worth it. Located right near downtown, it's got great prices and a great staff. They have good food, good beer, and if you like sports (including soccer), this is an excellent choice. Significant craft beer selection. The staff is really nice and knowledgeable. You will not be disappointed.

Milwaukee Downtown Dinning Week and we always try some new restaurants, pubs, eateries. Tonight we decided to go Sports Bar Pub Food. Parking is a challenge but it is downtown Milwaukee at 5:00PM. We order off the dinning week menu $20.00 for a three course dinner plus beverages. Greeted and seated right away and our waitress was there with menus right away. She had no idea what the specials were for Dinning Week but found out quickly and she was a great sport when it came to us harassing her about not knowing the specials. She was a great waitress all night. Overall the entire staff was very friendly which made dinning a fun experience tonight. We ordered Gator bites, Mini Brat Corn dogs for starters with a side of Mac and Cheese with bacon and onion rings. Mac was just o k nothing special. Raspberry sauce with the brats was very good and made the brats. Skip the Gator Bites all together. So far just very average pub food. The Taz Burgers were the next course. Burgers stuffed with Bacon and Cheese. Looks GREAT when it arrives to the table. Big Beautiful looking burger. Bun nicely toasted but the burger is unseasoned and the cheese seemed to be very scarce in my burger. GREAT looking but no real flavor other than the bacon. Also very dry, beef may have been to lean for this burger. Recapping, GREAT STAFF, GREAT WAITRESS, cold beer and lots to choose from. Very average food that could be very good food with a little work on their part. I'd go back for a couple beers with the guys anytime but would skip the food.
