  • Roman S.Happy hour 3-6 great brews, enjoy

    55555 by Roman S.

  • Dalit T.Absolutely terrible service. We've been sitting at the bar for 20 minutes now and no service. Bartenders go to literally everyone around us but us. And we're sitting at the bar. Eff this place.

    55555 by Ina L.

  • Kaitlyn N.I had the best cheeseburger today! Then a Bloody Mary got dropped on me. I also drank one too. It's much better to drink it then bathe in it.

    33333 by Kaitlyn N.

  • Stephen P.The phrase "fall of the bone" had never been more accurate. Their ribs were absolutely amazing. Highly recommended.

    55555 by Stephen P.

    55555 by Charlie G.

  • Marcus D.Live music was good. Beer selection was great and staff was friendly and happy to make recommendations. Stout was fantastic.

    55555 by Marcus D.

  • KiraThe only reason to come here on Monday nights was for QuizMaster trivia. The new management seems to think that we come here for mediocre food and PBR "specials." Their mistake. Onto RedRock!

    33333 by Kira

    22222 by Samantha C

  • Bret D.If you have a boat there is ample public dock space just outside the restaurant

    55555 by Bret D.

  • Brian A.I once had a very very good steak here, but they are more known for the excellent beer. This is the Milwaukee Brewing Company's flagship pub and eatery. It screams local brews and deserves a visit.

    55555 by Brian A.

  • JessicaThey have good chicken strips here

    55555 by Jessica

  • Rick J.Set some time aside and you should be able to try one of each beer with a couple of their flight selections. If you've got some friends with you finish with a bottle of awesome Baltic Porter.

    55555 by Rick J.

  • Lennon AIf you're looking for entertainment, this is not the establishment. The manager treats musicians like dirt, going so far as to actually heckle them during their performance.

    33333 by Lennon A

  • Halley K.Really unimpressed. Beer was too sweet, food came out wrong (wrong toppings on burger, well done instead of medium rare) and after a really long wait and server was not very helpful or friendly.
