“Interesting street full of shops and restaurants”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

This is where to come to find Wisconsin products such as cheese, sausage, and especially beer. There are a number of very good restaurants in these few blocks. It is a nice place to spend a few hours in the afternoon. We were back in the evening for dinner. The shops were not open then.

“Easy to find parking, but a little dead.”
Reviewed 7 December 2013 via mobile

Maybe it's just weekends in a walkie or maybe it was the minus 8 weather but this is a nice place just a little bit dead. Plenty of restaurants and a few bars not too many other kind of shops, but maybe I'm just missing them

“We rave about this street”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

I grew up in the Milwaukee area, and when my wife and I visit from Atlanta now we always go to Old World Third. We stock up on spices at The Spice House (which is the company that Alton Brown of Food Network fame gets *his* spices from), then we get our sausage fix from Usinger's, and finally we top it off with artisanal cheeses from the Wisconsin Cheese Shop. We even told a contact from one of the major cooking magazines about Old World Third. Perhaps they'll write it up.

“A great way to spend a Saturday afternoon”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

What can be wrong with a sunny fall Saturday afternoon and stopping in Usingers Store and filling your cooler with a wide assortment of great sausages & sauerkrat and then walking across the street to the Old German Beer Hall and having a stein of HB at one of the sidewalk tables? Ein prosit!! Enjoy!

“Not much to do”
Reviewed 7 June 2013

Maybe because we went on a Sunday afternoon... but there was nothing really to do. There were bars & a cheese shop & a spice shop. I was expecting some nice shops with shopping. Not so much... Planned on spending the afternoon downtown area & only took a couple of hours,
