    I once had a very very good steak here, but they are more known for the excellent beer. This is the Milwaukee Brewing Company's flagship pub and eatery. It screams local brews and deserves a visit.

    The multi-layered chicken nachos are so amazing. The black olive are a great add on. Order the sauces separatly

    Usually I hate getting leftovers to go, because many restaurants use styrofoam or plastic containers, but here they give you a cardboard box for leftovers! Way to go green!! 👏👏👏

    Set some time aside and you should be able to try one of each beer with a couple of their flight selections. If you've got some friends with you finish with a bottle of awesome Baltic Porter.

    Grab your friends and come for a night of food, drinks, and laughs! Go in the summer or when it gets nicer out, and you can sit outside overlooking the water! So pretty.

    I had the best cheeseburger today! Then a Bloody Mary got dropped on me. I also drank one too. It's much better to drink it then bathe in it.

    Don't forget to ask about their current cask conditioned beer on tap or the latest seasonal beer. Options are always tasty @alehouse!

    Seriously one of the best chill spots in Milwaukee. Sit on the porch and watch the boats come in at sunset.

    Great place to go on a Friday night for a good meal. Try the rib-eye and stick around for the live bands that start around 9:30.

    Wings and chicken pot pie are excellent. I don't recommend the onion rings or Milwaukee melt - a lot of meat but not much flavor.

    The beer to drink is Ulao or Flaming Damsel. Love them both. For Lunch I love the light and refreshing Smoked Turkey Croissant get the fries and dip them in the honey mustard. Yum!

    There are tasty, warm mixed drinks - perfect for the Wisconsin winters. In the summer, snag a table on the patio overlooking the river.

    All of the vegetarian options on the menu are good, and Louie's Demise is the best beer i've found in my 8 years of being in Milwaukee!

    The only reason to come here on Monday nights was for QuizMaster trivia. The new management seems to think that we come here for mediocre food and PBR "specials." Their mistake. Onto RedRock!

    They infuse their vodka for bloody marys with onions, jalepenos, peppers and a whole lot of other good stuff! GREAT bloody marys! GREAT burgers and beer!

    If you're looking for entertainment, this is not the establishment. The manager treats musicians like dirt, going so far as to actually heckle them during their performance.
