It was my first time to Milwaukee! I loved the building this restaurant calls home -- historic, and really cool looking! It was open and cavernous inside, but I was warm (in spite of the cold weather). I appreciate that. The food was delicious! The...More

Had lunch on the patio and a private dinner inside on the lower level. Both were very enjoyable. The patio was right on the river. The food was very good for both meals

We had our son's rehearsal dinner here in a large lower level "Old Milwaukee Pub" type party room. Great food and wonderful beer. A very good time was had by all. Very reasonable pricing for the event.
