“perfect bit of food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

The best corn beef and hash ive ever eaten. Clean friendly and great price point. The name is also very catchy! Reminded me of some of the finer restaurants in Las Vegas, just to find out there actually is one there! We only had brunch but are really looking forward to having dinner there . 10 out a 10 for me!!!

“Surprisingly affordable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

We had stayed at the Intercontinental and teetered with getting breakfast here or back on the road. In the end, we decided to eat here and were pleasantly surprised by the quite rather affordable prices! Service was good, even though they had some larger groups at the same time as us. Food is fresh and they are accommodating if you have the ever-present food allergies theses days (very appreciated!). Overall, great little addition to the hotel serving tasty breakfast. Go on and eat there already!

Came here after a conference. The food, presentation, and service were all amazing! Salmon and grandmas chicken were both phenomenal.

“Mmmmmm Grandma's Chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2014

Enjoyed an early dinner mid-week during Downtown Dining Week in Milwaukee, where fixed-proce lunch and dinner menus are offered across the city. We chose Kil@wat because of the soup and entree options. Grndma's Chicken was described by the waiter as somewhat of a crustless chicken pot pie. Well it was super-delicious, unpretentious without being sloppy looking. We had a great view of the color-changing artwork across the street. Drinks were OK.

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you were able to experience Kil@wat during Downtown Dining. This great annual program in the downtown community gives our guests a great opportunity to experience Kil@wat. Our Grandma’s Chicken is one of our most talked about and popular items- thus we had to put it on our Downtown Dining menu! We hope to see you again soon to continue to explore our delicious menu at Kil@wat.

Kindly,
Nick Kowalski

“A real touch of class”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

We stayed at the Intercontinental, so it only made sense to try this out. What a treat; great cocktails and entrees, and perfect service. Entrees were hot and well prepared, just like you'd get in a bigger city, but with small city friendliness. We highly recommend a stop here.
