Another favorite place; The Packing House is located immediately north of the Milwaukee Airport and is popular and excellent. Service is great. Try the fish fry. The Egg Plant appetizer is really good and enough for 4 people. The waterchestnut bacon appetizer is also really good too. Wine is not their speciality - but they make great mixed cocktails.

We go there often for Fish Frys even though it's a steak house. They also have a Friday drive thru for Fish Frys, very generous portions, shredded onion rings and some of the best deep fried eggplant in town. Piano Bar open weekends after 8 pm

The Packing House is an excellent choice for a meal, especially if you're anywhere near the Milwaukee Airport. This is an old-style restaurant: there are lots of locals, the food is good, there's duet playing music, and it's worked for 30 years.

Thank you so much for your review! We are proud to be a family owned and operated restaurant since 1974. My mother and father started this restaurant and I am happy to carry on our family's tradition of serving great food along with great service in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. We hope to have you back again soon!

My wife and I just spent our 22nd anniversary here on Saturday night as we spend all our important evenings. We may not come here often enough but the food is always great! The bartender has been there for 26yrs and he is always nice and friendly. The service this time wasnt quite up to par but we let it go because the food was good and it was our anniverasary.
NO worries we WILL be back anyways.
