We've been to the Ale House before, so when I saw a Groupon that coincided with our upcoming trip, I snatched it up. The service has always been friends and the food is pretty good, though I wish they'd improve their french fries, which as just blah when paired with their yummy burgers.

As a side note, we highly recommend the brewery tour at the Milwaukee Brewing Company, which is tied to the Milwaukee Ale House. Everyone talks about Lakefront Brewery, but we think the Milwaukee Brewing Co. tour is tops!

Some friends and I ended up here on a girl's trip last summer after eating dinner nearby. Not sure I'd visit this place in the winter, but it's a great summer spot. It's located right on the river so it has some good views. We had a lot of fun having cocktails and people watching. Had a live band inside, but we didn't really go in there. Service was okay; it was a really busy night. We ordered some late night appetizers later on, which were just your typical fried food. The only slightly annoying thing was the drunk boaters tying up their boats and walking along the river walk. But hey, that's not really the restaurant's fault.

Attentive wait staff; great beer selection -- just ask to try a few -- live music/dance floor. Check website for band info.

Fun place to eat on the river. Nice outside seating in summer. Enjoyed eating there and having drinks on another occasion. Little hard to find if you are in a hurry because you must go into a lobby of the building first, but well worth the trip.

Very cool ambiance and great beer list. Definitely try the pot roast sandwich and Burning Hamster IPA.
