Given we were in Milwaukee for only two days, it is testament to the excellence of the menu that we came back for successive lunches. The restaurant has a retro diner feel to it with unobtrusive screens showing sports action, for those who want. Good...More

The airstream trailers provide a fun atmosphere. The tacos and margaritas were delicious. Enjoyed the outdoor dining.

Vagabond is most definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Milwaukee. It is very close to the Marcus Center, so it’s the perfect place to go before seeing a show. I have went there a few times before shows and it hasn’t ceased to amaze....More
