Description: In an alleyway near the river, two gas lights and an inconspicuous nameplate—with the name International Exports Ltd.—is all that mark the front of this establishment. However, this spy-themed restaurant and bar has been a favorite Milwaukee attraction since its creation in 1966. Yes, you need the password. No, we cannot divulge it. But pass a fun clearance test to prove you’re a friendly operative and you will enter a spy’s nest of global espionage and entertainment! Expect intrigue and surprises as you explore the twists and turns of the Safe House, operated by an entity known only as Control. After a few cocktails you may feel like you’re sinking in your chair—but don’t worry—you’re probably sitting in the lucky ejection seat at the Interpol bar. We can’t tell you much more—but keep in mind—good spies never leave the way he or she came in! Wired Magazine calls the Safe House “one of the hippest places on the planet.” A full selection of cocktails, wine and beer.

The Safe House never disappoints! Every time I am there I find something new that I have not seen before! Great place to go for tourists or if you have guests in town!

This place has been around for many years. If your looking for something different. And NOT particular about the food, then check it out. I think, having been there a couple of times before, it has lost some of its fun. But if you have never been there before worth the stop. Make sure you walk around and check everything out.

It was really difficult to find this place but it was so worth it. The menu is not extensive but plenty adequate for anyone and well priced. The entertainment of all the attractions in this place made it so much fun. We had about a 10 minute wait to be seated which was not big deal. This was just a really fun place and completely unique place to have a meal.

Great beer and drinks. If you purchase the beer mug and reuse it, the beer is very reasonable. Had a rueben sandwich and fries. The meat was very lean (not fatty at all) with a great flavor, and good size sandwich and french fry portion.

It's pretty cool, the challenges when you enter are fun and fun to watch from the TV's in each room! We went on a Saturday night and had to wait an hour for a table for dinner. During that time we were encouraged to explore, once we got a table and placed our orders were given a sheet of paper with some instructions to check specific things out, this would have been nice to have when we were killing an hour. The food was okay, french fries weren't all that warm and the food is very basic, mostly burgers. Our server wasn't that great compared to others we saw. She disappeared once we ordered and after the food came.. Overall it's a cool place to check out, just very crowded and a bit spendy.
