My husband and I were recently in Milwaukee for a wedding and found this custard and burger stand just up Harbor Drive. You park just a couple of feet from Lake Michigan and then a few steps to a fairly large burger, served on a fresh bun and an ice cold soda . Seasoning was in order so a bit... More

Northpoint Custard & Burgers -> Lakefront location <- is a seasonal operation. Sep 6 was their last day of operation / now closed until May 2017. See you next year! (Mitchell Airport location is open. TA needs to add a separate Restaurant Listing for the airport Northpoint)

Now before you flame me, I know it is not the same Cali uniqueness of Shake Shack. I was having some word fun. But really, you are in Milwaukee, it is warm, there are 3 people legitimately surfing while you toss down cheese curds and tots. Save room for the custard because you are in Wisconsin! Enjoy it and the... More

This is the better place to go along the lakefront for ice cream/frozen custard. There are a few other places, but this was more popular, had outdoor seating, and was near the big beach. They give you a lot of sides in volume - lots of strawberries or fudge. It was a good portion for the value.

Fast service, great custard and sides (onion rings, fries, etc..), but the sandwiches were lacking a bit. We had a burger and Italian beef sandwich both which seemed a lacking in the meat. The buns were great and warmed on the grill so you get some crunch with each bite. Staff was friendly which was a nice surprise simply because... More

This is just about the only place to get food right on Lake Michigan which is kind of crazy. And you'll definitely want to get a hamburger - IF you can find a parking spot. During the summer it is VERY busy so you might need to plan on walking from some place along Lincoln Memorial Drive and end up... More

Open for the season again! Take the dog / enjoy some burgers or maybe some custard. My favorite is the Beach Burger. Suggest that you arrive by 11:30am to avoid lunch rush.

My wife and I stopped here to try their cheese curds. They were good, not outstanding. It was a cute place against the water. Not a lot of places to sit down, and it seem to be the cruise in place for locals. Lotta loud music and people hanging out.

All I have to do is text my kid that I am in MKE. "Yummm. Have you been there yet?" Burgers dripping with grease. Fries perfect for ketchup dipping. Old school custard. Total attack to my better judgement. Oh yes!

Description
CLOSED FOR THE 2015 SEASON! SEE YOU MAY 21, 2016!

Set on the shore of Lake Michigan near Bradford Beach along Lincoln Memorial Drive, Northpoint opened in 2009. Open seasonally, Northpoint serves up some of the best hamburgers and custard in the city between May and September each year.

Beyond a wide variety of burgers and treats like sundaes, shakes and cones, Northpoint also offers grilled sandwiches, French fries, tater tots and, of course, fresh cheese curds - a Wisconsin staple!

Sit at a picnic table near the beach and enjoy the views and lake breezes as you enjoy your meal. Summer doesn't get better than this!
