    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!

    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.

    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.

    Been here a bunch of times w/ friends -- for my roommate's 21st bday (great drinks!), one night before going to Summerfest, once just on a whim... The kid in me loves the "secret" entrance & exit :-)

    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".

    Go see the Magician on Thursday night and ask him to do the "fork trick" and then you get to keep the fork nice souvenir! Tip him well too he deserves it ;)

    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

    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.

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

    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!

    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.

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

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

    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!
  • Maria-Magdalena L.
    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
