My co-workers and I needed to pass some time between two wedding related events and decided to catch up on some football and have drinks prior to dinner. We stopped into Dewey's and the bar was packed. We sat at a table and got a few drinks. The server seemed a little upset that we weren't ordering food and just drinks but we had other dinner plans already.

The upside is that the drinks were very affordable and the selection of football games was great.

Good imaginative food for a bar like restaurant. Excellent service. Popular with locals and visitors.

Dewey's provides more than just bar food. They offer a number of sandwich's, salads, wraps and of course burgers. We have been there many times and have never been disappointed. Their wait staff is nice and efficient.

This restaurant has not been open very long, and when I drive by it always looks empty. We tried it a 6:30 on a Saturday night, and three other people were there having cocktails. The 4-5 waitresses/bartenders were dressed unprofessionally, and spent way too much texting while standing at the bar. The employees in the kitchen were all wearing the Dewey's shirts - shouldn't the waitresses/bartenders wear the same, or at least not unflattering tank tops? They were not friendly, and were not familiar with the beers on hand. Food was average, nothing special. The atmosphere is very nice - service does not live up to the atmosphere.

Its a weird experience if you go during a fairly busy time but want to eat and not go to the bar. You walk around the crowded bar to a small, uneventful dining room with no guidance (nobody to seat you, you find your own table). The server was a young woman who was friendly enough but apparently was overwhelmed (Self proclaimed, she didn't do a terrible job following up with us) with the amount of traffic (although there aren't a lot of tables to begin with).

We ordered apps and sandwiches, and we received one app and then our sandwiches and then our second app. Why would we want the second app after we've gotten our entrees? Terrible timing. Two of the three of us ordered burgers and both were done less than requested (pink ordered medium-well and very red/raw ordered medium) and the pork sandwich was just ok (temperature was a bit off, flavor was lackluster, etc.).

In general the prices (drinks and food) were ok and competitive, but based on akward atmosphere for dining and the quality of the food, I wouldn't return. One of the three of us ended up really sick the next day (not 100% certain it was the food, but it was quite coincidental). Underwhelming and plenty of higher quality food establishments downtown and around Racine. A shame, a beautiful remodel and excellent location.
