This fun medium sized downtown bar has delicious, healthy, reasonably priced food. Do not miss the vermouth carrots, the beet salad is great, too. They run dinner specials during the week, have soups, salads, eggs, burgers, steak and pizza. We had breakfast, but I will be back for dinners. The staff are friendly, the place is very clean,the portions are big, there is a full bar. On the walls they have fun bar/bicycle/brothel paintings and memorabilia, and a ghost story behind one of the photos on the wall, where all the people are toasting with cans of PBR, and there is an odd beer being toasted, with nobody holding it, of another brand (maybe Schlitz? I can't recall the brand). Another photo of the bicycle messengers is also fun and funny. This is a good place, you won't regret it.

Great food and atmosphere in this tavern which looks much like it did when it opened over 80 years ago (as can be seen in the pictures lining the walls). I highly recommend the sliced carrots as a side to one of their many delicious sandwiches.

My boyfriend and I came here on a Saturday night and it was not too busy. We got seats at the bar and ate our food their too. The service was fair, they could have been a little more interested, rather they seemed too busy (even though it was not that busy in the bar). We got our food within 10 minutes and it was delicious. I highly recommend the carrots for a side-they are cooked in dry vermouth and are absolutely delicious! I had the pulled pork that was great and my boyfriend had the prime dip which he loved. Our total bill was only 35 with tip which is not bad for a dinner in Milwaukee. Would highly recommend this place if you are in town.
