Description: The recent renaissance of Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward has introduced the city to a new era of stylish metropolitan dining. Historically significant buildings are serving as the foundation for the many downtown restaurants that have surfaced in recent years. Following suit, Bourbon & Tunns Tavern opened its doors in the beautifully restored Queen Anne style building located at 221 N Broadway Avenue in 2002. Since the time of our inception, Bourbon & Tunns Tavern introduced an entirely new category of cuisine to Milwaukee’s contemporary culinary scene. Palm’s has spent years developing and fine tuning what today has become known as Global Fusion. Simply stated, Global Fusion begins with a classical French foundation and seamlessly fuses exotic worldly flavors to create distinctively enticing cuisine. Our chefs have established a reputation for crafting creative and exciting cuisine, and are continuously committed to keeping our customers equally enthusiastic about our food.

“Delicious food in a historic district”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Take a walk in the historic 3rd Ward and enjoy a delicious lunch at an outdoor table. The turkey panini is chocked full of turkey and topped off with cranberries and walnuts. The $10 price is affordable. For an appetizer, try the chilled peach soup for $7. The waitstaff was attentive, knowledgeable and pleasant.

“Ridiculous prices”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I had just come from a weekend in Chicago and had tried a new drink for me, a Templeton Rye, at Pop's in downtown Chicago. They had music and the drink was $9.00. I had the exact drink at Bourbon and Tunns the next night in Milwaukee and it was $14.00. Are you kidding me? The place was empty, the waitress chose to share her dislikes of certain foods when asked for recomendations,told us she didn't really work ther that often. How do they train their staff? The food was very disappointing, and $140.00 for 4 salads, 4 small plates ant 8 drinks. Never again.

“Good food at a reasonable price”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The food and atmosphere were excellent. The service was a bit off; our waiter appeared to be new and one soup arrived cold. But give that the rest of the food was delicious, it was a great meal for the price.
