Have to say I was really disappointed with my first visit here. First of all it's very confusing. My recommendation is to go right to the cashier so they can explain it. Wine pours are expensive and if you buy a bottle there is a...More

This place is very expensive for the pour that you receive. Food is overpriced as well and not very impressive. I find the staff to be inattentive and they do not know much about wine. I can't understand why this place is still in business...More

I bet people would hang out longer if they offered more food options. Very cute place and really enjoy the atmosphere.

The Ruby Tap is a unique place in the Milwaukee area. Simply, it is a wine bar with several varieties of wine and vintners on tap. You can have a small taste or a full glass; it's completely up to you! If you love wine,...More

Thought I would love the place. I quickly realized it is like going to a fast food restaurant. Get your own wine, water, and fill out a paper menu and take to the bar if you want snacks. Wine & food are good, but there...More
