Our dinner club consisting of 4 couples had 6:30 reservations tonight. The dining room was pretty much empty except for a table of 12 people that we were squeezed in with. We did not get our food until well after 8:00 o' clock as all we heard was that there was this table of 12 people in front of us.... More

Girls night out for play at Sunset Playhouse - stopped for dinner before - steaks were great!!!! And reasonable - includes texas toast, fries and coleslaw -- downside is if you want baked potato it is $2??? But for the price well worth the meal - it was perfect! Had the 8oz filets!

Family gathering for steaks and fish. No other way to say " outstanding". pan sizzled New York and Filets that melt in your mouth. Priced right for the conscience beef eater on a budget, with no sacrifice for taste or quality. Butch, a Milwaukee Icon, now has a pub and eatery in one quaint establishment. Introduce your self to the... More

Stopped in there once for a drink, another time for dinner. Everyone loved the place. It's quaint, 'old time', but the staff, atmosphere, service & food are great. What was really surprising, was that it had been about 6 mos. since our last visit, & the bartender remembered who we were, & my husband name.

Was our first time here. Having driven by many times, we decided to try it. The place was hopping at 6PM dinner hour on a Friday evening. We had about a 10 minute wait at the bar so we were seated pretty quick. Very casual place and seemed like a lot of regulars there. Staff was polite, attentive and efficient.... More

We have a small group of 6 women who meet once a month for dinner. We try new restaurants every time and it was "Butches Red Mill" night. This is a very old restaurant and has changed hands several times and now is Butches Red Mill. It has been poorly updated. This is the local bar that neighbors hang out... More

We loved the red mill before it closed down. Went and tried it with the new ownership - "Butch". It is a seat yourself, casual type of place now. Loved the different seating, and the cozy feeling. The menu is VERY simple. About 8 sandwiches, a friday fish fry, and then appetizers. We had the poppers, steak sandwich, and a... More

This is an amazing restaurant!!! The Historic Red Mill is a great place to eat. I had the best Escargot there and the fish fry is some of the best fish I have had. It is super busy so make sure you get a reservation. We went here with my son so he could see an old supper club.

In my very humble opinion this is the absolutely best Fish Fry I have had thus far, one the main reasons is the fresh, moist fish accompanied by there own unique Cole Slaw, that is best described as one-of-a-kind. Not creamy style nor sweet/sour but rather a blend of both worlds. the potato choices range from your typical French Fry's... More
