Dirty Dinning award on 8-16-2012 makes you wonder 3 pages of violations and refusing to allow the news media into the kitchen area to see that all the violations were corrected C MON MAN open up the kitchen and let people see whats going on back there. Clean up your act and take some pride in your product

Nice spot if you're looking for outdoor seating in the Milwaukee summertime. Expect a very good Bloody Mary, reasonable bar food, a festive atmosphere. Good beer selection and live music a couple of days a week. Tucked away behind a boat storage facility and right on the river. We've always enjoyed visiting for a dose of the islands after the long Wisconsin winter.

A fun place to go for "riverside" drinks. Food is just so-so and pricey for what you get. My sisters and daughter went there to celebrate our August birthdays. Had fun but the grouper jerk was grouper with NO jerk. Oh well, had a good time anyway!
