Had "special" New Years eve dinner, nothing special at all. In fact very mediocre! Service just fair, not what we would have expected. Food quality, quantity,and presentation less than expected.

Caesar salad was on the small side, but the freshly fried smelt were a nice touch. And the "blue & blue" fried fish with blue cheese tartar sauce was excellent - fish was very fresh and had just the right amount of breading. Nice selection...More

This restaurant is my new favorite in Milwaukee. Fabulous menu and service. Don't miss the unique beer cheese soup served in a pretzel-bread bowl.
