“Horrible, awful service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

While Horn Goat has an awesome atmosphere with seating along the river, the service is horrible. We went with a group of about 10. 4 people ordered chicken fingers, 15 minutes later the server comes back and says they are out of chicken fingers (not a big deal). She retakes our order of 5 sandwiches and a bowl of soup. An hour later someone comes to set our table. I told him our food has taken too long and to have the kitchen cancel our order. The food comes out about 10 minutes later and we get an attitude from another server that our food was there in a timely manner. Not only did it take over an hour for our food but they were completely rude about the situation, not a sorry and we will try harder next time, nothing. Honestly, I will not return here.

“Good Brews with Good Views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Stopped for a brew with a view on a beautiful warm day in Milwaukee! First visit here and there will be more to come! Very cool outdoor patio with exceptional fire element, couches and lots of tables to watch the boats go by (also a tent with bar and seating that provides outdoor shade). Next time in Milwaukee will try the food too. Good selection of both!

“Service needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

While I completely understand that then servers and bartenders work for a place that is probably obviously busy every night in the summer, I am pretty sure their checking accounts are grateful for that very fact. The servers are not inviting, probably overworked and just average. Tots are amazing and their veggie burger too. Just wish they had more people to staff that really great patio they have.
