What a pleasant surprise.. We stayed over night in Milwaukee before our flight the next morning.. We decided to try out this place for dinner. This was by far the best food and service we've had in many years.You must try it out.. It's worth every penny!

“Eh, just okay”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

I went here expecting a lot and was let down. There were several choices of beer and lots of people (seemed like locals). But the food was average at best. The bartender took my order and delivered my drink in fine time, but my salad appeared WAY too fast to be made to order....ok, but then dinner came before I finished the salad, and while the chicken was red hot, the potatoes were cold, like refrigerator cold. The bar was packed and people ordering over me constantly while I tried to drink and eat. Nice place and cool spot on the river, just wouldn't repeat it.

“Stopped many times.... always great service”
Reviewed April 14, 2014

Even though the atmosphere can sometimes be chaotic (in the summer the outdoor seating is great but there are a number of boats that have large groups come at once and during the winter we have had large crowds due to Bucks games or Brewers events), the service is always top notch. I am not saying all of the servers are the most outgoing and friendly, BUT they are prompt in finding people without a drink or waving their money. I have never had a bad drink nor bad food, so it is a good "staple" if you want a sure stop.

“Rock Bottom is Tops”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Great to see a familiar place when traveling to Milwaukee. Ended up eating there twice in one week. First night was the lobster shrimp tacos. Perfect blend of ingredients with generous chunks of lobster and shrimp. Second night was the ribs, home run!!! Seasoned to perfection. The server was attentive and the price was reasonable. I have eaten at the one in the Oakbrook, Il and have to say consistency will keep me coming back. Definite do over!

“Great place to go before a show”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

We stopped in here the first week it opened years ago. The waitress was very nice - we ordered burgers which were great and since they were a new restaurant, they let us sample several desserts for free. Years later we still love stopping here if we are downtown for a show or after spending time at the Milwaukee Public Museum. The food is great and the pub style atmosphere is my kind of place. My most memorable meal here has been the prime rib special we had one Sunday evening. It was the best. They tend to get really busy starting in the early evening so you may want to make a reservation.
