Food in Milwaukee

I'll be going through Milwaukee in a couple months on my way to a wedding in Sheboygan. I'm looking to find a good place for lunch.

I'm looking for either a good burger, pub or dinner type place.

I am not sure why, but this question is stumping me. I hope some others can give you some options.

It would help to verify your route. I assume you are coming from the south and want to eat near I-94/43 rather than going far off the freeway.

There is a nice country restaurant called Apple Holler at the Racine/Kenosha County line. They have good home cooking. It is a place where kids can pick apples and they do hay rides in season, but they hgave really good food.

My favorite burger in Milwaukee is Kopp's, but ityis a fqast food, sit in your car type place so that would not work ifd you want to sit down to eat. If you do decide for the Kopps burger there is a Kopp's on North Port Washington Rd at the Silver Spring Rd exit.

There is a Chancery restaurant at 27th and Layton on the south side. That would fit your requirements for a pub burger.

Tht's all I am coming up with right now.

I hope these help.

Solly's Grille Restaurant in Glendale. USA Today rated it has one of the Top 10 Best Burgers in America. Great prices and off the freeway.

Sobelman's Pub and Grill. It is located in valley. I believe on 19th and St. Paul.

Mo's Irish Pub on Wisconsin Avenue has a great burger. It is unique to the area. I will copy the description from their site.

A heaping 1/2 pound char-grilled burger layered with corned beef, Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion and our signature Killarney sauce. $9.99

The Social on South 2nd. They have great food. A unique sandwich is Knuckle Sandwich . . . . .$12.95 Lobster knuckle, bibb letuce & tarragon mayo.

Elsa's on the park. It is located on Jefferson.

They have a very good and unique burger.BURGER AU POIVRE

Covered with peppercorns and sautéed in a burgundy sauce.


Milwaukee Ale House in the Historic Third Ward. It is a great locally ownded brew house.

Water Buffalo in the Third Ward. They just opened up on the riverwalk. Here is a write up of their signature burger. One pound certified angus beef seared with herb butter, roasted tomato and garlic ragu on a gourmet onion roll.

Patty's Burgers on farwell.

Definitely Sobelman's for their burger.

Also try County Clare for their excellent and inexpensive Irish pub food. The building is also very unique, and it's very close to the lakefront so you can do a little sightseeing too.

Patty Burger is a delicious new fast food restaurant on the eastside on Farwell. The burgers are so fresh and delicious. MMMM. My mouth is watering just thinking about them again. They're open really late too and have delivery!

I second Kopps! I crave them often since I have moved to Minneapolis! They have great malts too! Only problem, very limited seating.
