I went on Wednesday night when they were having a burger and a beer special. It was very good and the special price was good also. Great place to eat. I have been there previously when I had lots of their different small plates. Great!

There really wasn't a bad choice to be made. A wonderful time, short wait at the bar for some late morning cocktails and seated with friends. Nice atmosphere, cozy, service was wonderful and the food fantastic. Cannot wait to go again.

Milwalky Trace has a very healthy ego. Overpriced, yes, but the service was great & some of the menu selections were fabulous! The brussel sprout slaw is exceptional! Great choice even if you loath brussel sprouts- you'll be won over by the crispiness & the...More
