“rouladen was unbelievable, wife thought food was ok.”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

i ordered the beef rouladen, i thought it was one of the best dishes i have ever eaten, and it takes a lot to impress me. I ate at delmonico in vegas and was not impressed.. my wife ordered the lover dumpling soup and the rhine sampler. she loved the soup! the wiener schnitzel was good but not mind blowing and her sauerbraten was just ok, but she was gaga over her spaetzel. We would go back i would like to try the pork shank.

“not worth the money”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Went there on Saturday evening. I do not mind paying if the food is good, so here I minded what the price was!. First off had a martini- obviously bartender did not know how to make a good one. Wiener Schnitzel- well lets just say it did not melt in your mouth. Waitress served wrong dishes to people. Potato pancakes just so-so and burnt. Don't waste your money here!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Every time we go to Milwaukee we stop here for a meal. The authentic German food is out of this world and the beer is wonderful too. Great atmosphere and service are keys to the longevity of this establishment. i look forward to my next visit.

“German Dinner”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We had great service, good German beer, and tasty dishes! The crustini appetizer with beer and cheese dip was very good and my Count Esterbury entree was delicious. I will put Maders on my list of places to visit again.
