“Great patio. Typical pub fare.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This place has a huge patio on the River. The food is typical fried pub food. The atmosphere is laid back and fun. Great service and bloody mary's.

“Great Location Average Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have dined at John Hawk's several times. The outdoor area is nice during the summer. It is on the river and very comfortable. It is near the Riverside Theater. Service is OK, not great. The food was OK not great.

We like the feel of beikng there, and the warmth of the place.
Just not crazy about the menu or food, it could sure be improved.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

Slow service for a restaurant that it difficult to get to because of bridge construction. Limited tap beer selection; large selection of bottled beers and a few ciders. The menu selection looked diverse. Only stopped in for a beer, sat on the patio and watched the river traffic go by-very enjoyable.

“Great Pub for Quiet Conversation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

We came here for dinner after the Milwaukee Bastille day celebration. As usual, we were greeted by a friendly hostess, our attentive waiter promptly took our order and brought drinks. The Rib-bits are a fabulous appetizer and any of the entrees are equally fabulous! This is not the cheapest place in the area but the first rate service and food keep us coming back! The beer list is excellent as well!
