We live in the neighborhood, and Burke's has become our "nothing in the house, let's go out to eat" place. All the food we've ever had has been spot-on, and the people who work there are amazingly friendly. Drinks/food are priced fairly, as it is not a dive with typical "bar food." These guys are really making an effort at providing awesome food in a fun, casual environment - and affordable. They also seem to recognize the history behind the place, and they have respected that (along with making great improvements to the physical space itself - new paint, garage doors that can be opened to the outside, refinished the tables). It's also kid-friendly (at the appropriate times, of course), although they only have 2 high chairs and no booster seats.
My only criticism is that the staff gets a little overwhelmed when the place is packed, and the social order has broken down a couple times when we've been there on a Friday night or before a well-attended Brewers game.
They also have banquet space.
