“Just okay”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

Four of us ate lunch there yesterday- the cost was a little over $100.00 for 4 sandwiches, 1 appetizer, 3 waters and 1 cup of tea. The food was just ok, mediocre in every way except the appetizer plate of vegies & cottage cheese, which was good in taste and presentation. We all agreed we wouldn't eat there again, even if the food were half the price. Ambience was nice.

“Lovely Brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

My husband and I had brunch here while staying at the hotel. It was excellent! You probably won't find better food in all of Milwaukee. I wish I could tell you what we ate, but I can tell you that it's a great place to go and not at all what you would expect in this town. The Iron Hotel and Smyth would fit in just as well in Los Angeles or in New York, only they would be 3X the price. This restaurant is a real gem. Definitely go there.

“AN OUTSTANDING EXPERIENCE AT THE IRON HORSE, SMYTH RESTURANT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

A friend of mine was in town and I decided to try SMYTH. I had eaten there some years ago and I heard a few friends mention that the food and service were really great. And they were right! My friend owns a resturant and manages others, so his judgment in regard to our shared experience was a great confirmation of my own. SMYTH is outstanding. It was one of the best meals I have had in Milwaukee. I had bone in rye eye and he has venison. We both has the Kale salad. The food was execeptional and our waitress, Jennifer and our hostess, Jasmine was first class. I am really impressed and my friend was thoroughly pleased with where I choose to take him to dinner
