We stopped here since it was close to our hotel and the NCAA regional arena. Wowsers...the place was packed! However, that is to be expected when Wisconsin is playing. ;-) However, there are TVs EVERYWHERE and no matter which direction you are standing/seating, you will see the game. Not much other to comment on because we were there under unique... More

Big sports bar near the Bradley Center, but it was more crowded than we preferred so after a cold one and waiting in line for the bathroom we chose to go elsewhere.

Met some people there and it is a happening place. Lots of energy and if a game is on it will be noisey.

Atmosphere was very energized, the food, not so much. I certainly would never claim the cheeseburgers to be "world famous" no one in my group was impressed. Quite a heafty bill for 4 people.

We were in the area and bumped across this place. It was jam packed because of a Marquette game, but the service was good and it was a lot of fun!! The food items come Ala Cart so it was nice to order what you like and not get too much. The burgers and ham sandwiches were great and the... More

Lived in Milwaukee all my life and never had been there before a downtown game. Tried the other sports bars and figured this time we'd go. Lots of seating and screens to view. Good variety of food items. Highly recommend the sweet potato tater tots.

First the good,... tons of TVs, decent bar food, cheap pitchers of beer. We went over there on a Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock to catch the Marquette basketball game. We had two parents and five young adults over 21 and one young adult months from being 21. Four of the young adults got there before us. Three of them... More

While the Packers game wasn't the result we wanted, we loved the bar. While the burger and wings were both really good, it's the atmosphere that makes it a great spot.

Stopped here after dinner for a beer which turned into several. Great sports bar to watch pretty much any sport you are interested in. TV's all over the place. Great wait staff. Friendly and very attentive. Will definitely come back again!

We stopped for a quick drink after the Buck's game. The staff were extremely friendly. As we don't get to Milwaukee often we were looking for more than burgers for dinner and the staff was more than accommodating in helping us find a place to dine. We will definitely return to try their food as all dishes looked very good.

Thank summerlover13
