    The best chicken and waffles I've ever had. A large perfectly cooked moist chicken breast over a golden waffle with a tangy maple bbq sauce. Pair it with one of their many beer choices

    This 10-ounce burger patty is made from a blend of dry-aged prime rib, short rib, flank, and skirt that is so full of steak-y flavor, so juicy after searing on the griddle, you won't feel cheated. Read more

    A 10-oz patty made from dry-aged prime rib, short rib, flank, and skirt, with “smothered’’ onions and cheddar. A price tag of $22? It’s crazy. But as chef Timothy Raines says, “It eats like a steak.’’ Read more

    Perfect spot for a Tweetup or other networking event.Downstairs, see Chris on the bar, as he is knowledgeable and extremely nice. Try the Mini Duck Panini as well as the Waygu Meatloaf Sliders!

    Great place. Nice atmosphere. Expensive food. But they have a bottle of the 15 year old Van Winkles. http://www.grantland.com/story/_/id/6667949/pappy-van-winkle

    Order the Blood and Sand, a mouthwatering concoction made with scotch, cherry liquor, antica formula vermouth, and house grenadine that'll knock you out and hang you out to dry. Read more

    They have tallboys PBRs which is badass, however it's labeled as being from Illinois which is highly offensive to us Milwaukeeians. P.s. PBR was voted best American beer in 1893 bitches

    Great brunch spot with fresh dollar oysters! Be sure to go early though, cause they run out quick.

    Chicken and Waffles. Worth trying. Better for brunch than anything else. Fries are also delish.

    Exceptional service, the meat candy is a must have appetizer, the burger is worth every cent of the 22 dollars it costs, you will leave here full.

    Their cocktails are god-awful. They didn't strain my French 75, so I had "pulp" floating around in it. And it was lukewarm—I was choking, it was so bad. BUT go for the hot men in suits. Yes, suits.

    A great place to drink on Marathon Monday, where the beers are not as expensive as the decor would lead you to believe.

    Don't order anything with meat. Had the skirt steak (sent it back) and the spaghetti carbonara. Tastes like they've been storing meat in the freezer for months...
