Good food, friendly waitress and decently quick service. I was surprised to see how small the place was and was a little nervous that there was literally no one in there, but was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of food. Would definitely come back.

Since undergoing new management, the swinging door has improved greatly. The food is well done and taste good for a fair price. You're not getting fine dining here, this is a good place to get a quick lunch with a friend in the downtown area. They have daily specials which are fairly priced and I think that you will enjoy the service as well as the food. Just don't expect that you're going to A four or five star restaurant. This is a basic lunch place with character

Came in friday for lunch with a buddy from work. I ordered a fish fry and he had a pulled pork sandwich. Both were excellent. Atmosphere is awesome. The only thing that I found strange was that sum1 from the kitchen brought us our food and got us silverware. He was very friendly. Overall great experience and will definately be back.

We went for brunch on a busier Saturday morning. The food took a while but it was worth it. I had the scrambler with eggs, black beans, chorizo...it was delicious.

Checked out the pub while participating in the Milwaukee Doors Open weekend. Being located in the basement of the Grains Building made it convenient. That and the good reviews in Trip advisor did not hurt either. It is a small place but has side walk sitting. Menu is pub food but beer selection is limited and even fewer options on tap. Wait staff appeared a bit harried but are waitress was attentive. There must have been an issue in the kitchen as some of the orders were taking a little time to prepare. One couple left after waiting about 30 minutes for their order. But our wait was reasonable.
Food came out hot and tasty. My companion was offered his salmon three different ways, appetizer size, lunch size or dinner size. My steel burger was very juicy and came with vodka spicy carrots as a side option. They were recommended by the waitress and were original and very good. Will have to find out how they were prepared.
