This place was a typical pub, the bar had interesting local decor and a nice view of tv's for sports (badgers football was on). In the eating area there was nice seating with views of the river however, nowhere could you watch any of the game if you were catching a bite to eat. The food left quite a bit to be desired and the prices were not reasonable for the quality of food, but the beer was good (and isn't that really why you are there)? Decent joint, but nothing special nor anything making want to go back time and time again.

It's a big place with a deck over looking the river. We were there on a Sunday in March and service was a little lax. The food and beer were decent but not great.

Enjoyed visiting this place since late 90's on Milwaukee trips. Good range of food options and sincerely appreciate the vegetarian menu choices. Most beers are fairly decent, none bad, but also none that were really hitting it out of the park. Examples for styles seemed aimed at a more general audience, which is fine with me because that's more in line with my tastes as well. Parking can be tough downtown in this area sometimes, which is a common annoyance with me.
