My wife has a gluten allergy, so when we want to go for a nice night out, Tess is always among our top picks. Nearly everything on the menu is gluten-free. While not gluten-free, the fish fry is easily among the best in Milwaukee (and given how great the sweet potato fries are, make it a wonderful meal). Tess also has a great selection of beers and a nice outdoor patio.

I would rate the food average for the price. The service was good but my crusted almondine white fish Saturday night special had very little taste. With all the options available in Milwaukee, I doubt that I would return.

This is a cool place with great outdoor seating on the East side of Milwaukee near UW area. Good food and a fun place to go to. Chef prepared. Fun. Festive.

We dined here last night for our anniversary. We each had a salad and a seafood entree. All of our meals were amazing. They even had fresh baked gluten free bread brought to the table. Great service, cute dining area. Can't wait to come back!
