    Fun little themed restaurant. Worth seeing it if you're in town. Food is alright. Atmosphere is cool. Some might find it campy, but it's a cool experience. Try and see all the rooms.

    Awesome experience for first timers and out of towners! If I came here again, I would focus on appetizers and drinks, the main part of the menu is of the lowest quality!

    Not a place to eat really, but for drinks and a unique experience, its great. You have to enter from the alley, and you need to tell a password to the bouncer to get in. When leaving, use the payphone

    It's a "been there/done that" kind of place for me, but I still enjoy bringing first-timers there. And I don't share the password with them until we're in, and I tell them where they can find it.

    Perfect place to take friends. Entrance is hidden off the main road, and you have to have password to get in. If you show up, you'll be able to get in easily.

    I had the hamburger, very juicy and good. Came with pickles, tomato slice, and lettuce. Delicious with the locally brewed beers.

    Besides being a really fun atmosphere, the food is surprisingly incredibly delicious! Best cheese curds I've had!

    I love the spy memorabilia that they have. The beer is alright...😊 I just wish that they had more of a cool thing still going...I came here for my 21st Birthday last year.

    Great place to go and have fun with family and friends. I went there for my birthday and was taken down to a secret area! Ask for the top secret drink, Spies Demise, so good!

    To enter this bar, you must know the secret code. If you do not know the secret code, you will have to pass a test to enter. Passing the test is pretty great but I won’t spoil it for you. Read more

    Really fun place! The food is good, the atmosphere is fun, and it's good for taking the kids and out-of-town guests.

    The last time I was in a safe house it was with a former prince, several bodyguards and a Secret Service agent. It was twice as scary, and the food was half as good.

    Its a fun place to go but only if u have people from out of town. I would never come here on my own with locals cuz it's cool but the food is no good but it's a cool concept & it was a real speakeasy!

    Try the Odd Job martini. "Like a bond villian a bizarre (and delicious) mix of Patron, Tequila, St Germaine Elderflower Liqueur, cranberry juice, and a splash lime".

    All the places at the bar have plaques with titles. Find the one labeled "Reserved For Control"; it's the best seat in the house.

    Be sure to come in the evening. They dont open for dinner till 5. Better atmosphere then. Try the spinach & artichoke dip!!!

    Many will advise you the food is not good but arrive early and the full dinner menu is great and affordable. Be sure to spend time wandering around and reading/interacting.

    It's sad that Marcus Corp changed how it is more of a corporate restaurant feel instead of the fun themed spy bar. The changes to the classic drinks were not for the better either.

    The last time I saw the Bronze Fonz up-close, he had something stamped on his forehead that implicated the Safe House (see the Bronze Fonz venue page). His nostril hid the USB outlet.

    It's not impossible that this classified joint is one of the favorites of Milwaukeeans & International Spies alike. Enjoy edibles fit for a spy on the run! Share Mission Impossible with fellow spies.

    I did not think the cheese curds were that great. My husband had a burger and it was red in the middle and greasy. But it was fun to go in there.

    If you don't want to have the BG's the next day on a five hour car trip, avoid the food!!! Drinks are good tho!

    Park at the InterContinental, take lift to ground floor, use exit to your right (exit with atm) and it's right across the street!

    We had 3 different waitresses stop by throughout our meal multiple times. I’ve worked in several restaurants and never seen such a run down place that was so unorganized. Food nothing special.
