Stopped in after a game. It is a very nice space. Crowded, but plenty of room for moving around! Bartenders were attentive and helpful! We were pretty hungry, and were worried that the kitchen was closed, as it was close to midnight. We were delighted that it was still serving, but close to closing. We ordered the cheese platter to... More

Looking for a eat, we wandered through third street until we found Buck Bradley's. We picked this place because it had a TV and beer for my Dad, vegetarian options for my boyfriend, and I wanted something I had never tried before. Buck Bradley's delivered all three criteria beautifully! The atmosphere is fantastic and the manager (or owner, I couldn't... More

Loved the food and history of this bar/restaurant. Bar is 75 feet long and has 40 bar stools. Friendly staff is very eager to state the history behind this restaurant. Great stop on our visit to Milwaukee.

Historic and busy with after work crowd with a fun atmosphere. Basic sandwich and 'bar' food made well. Interesting antiques, good drinks, and convenient location for sport and theater quick bite. It is not a fancy dining or evolved culinary efforts but all right for a casual meet up.

Like the old timesy decor, big menu, good food, moderate prices. Go there and enjoy. It's probably fun at night and for a sporting event too.

On our couples weekend we tried this restaurant. We were disappointed because our experience was "just OK". The food came out quickly. Our server was attentive and friendly, but forgot our drinks. The food choices didn't provide us with excitement in trying something new. If you're looking for a basic sandwich, near the Bradley Center, this might be your place.

We arrived at 6:30 pm as we got caught in traffic, but planned on attending a 7:00 pm Buck's game. They were packed and while I didn't mind being a little late for the game, I didn't want to miss most of it. I asked the Hostess about the situation and She smiled and said it's a common occurrence at... More

Longest bar east of the Mississippi. Bartenders in white shirts and black bow ties. I was in Milwaukee for a week, 3 days work, 4 days vacation/Packer game at Lambeau. I met bar tender Terry my first night in town. Very personable and knowledgeable on all things Milwaukee/Green Bay. As my family flew into town during the week, we all... More

I had a fish and shrimp combo that was one of their lunch specials. The fish and shrimp were good with large portions. Cole slaw was average. French fries, average. My only complaint was that the waitress said the special I ordered was about fourteen dollars as best she could remember--she wasn't sure and there was no printed list of... More
