I happened across "Wisconsin Supper Clubs" on Milwaukee Public Television. I grew up in Wisconsin and frequented many Supper Clubs that are no longer in existence. So I watched a wonderful program, which visited a number of Supper Clubs throughout the state, including Jackson Grill in Milwaukee. I've lived on the north side all of my life, and never knew this place was in town and open. Not only open, but serving some of the best steaks in town. When I entered, I stepped squarely into the 1950's. The place is small, nice bar in the front room, 10 tables in the dining room in the rear. This was my first visit, yet I was greeted as if I'd been dining there every week for a year. The staff was fun, friendly and efficient. Our server couldn't do enough for us, but wasn't pesky. I had the NY Strip. Perfectly cooked, but too big to eat at one sitting. Juicy, delicious and tender. My guest had the Filet. It was melt-in-your-mouth tender, and filled with flavor. Both steaks came with a portobello mushroom cap the size of a Big Mac bun. In itself, it could have been a meal. We both had the garlic mashed, good, but a bit light on the garlic. This place is known for steak, but the menu listed other interesting entrees that require a return visit. And of course, I'll have to come back for another steak as well. But next time, I'll make a reservation.
