My girlfried and I decided to stop by this place while on the River Walk in downtown Milwaukee. I really enjoyed sitting outside along the river. Tried the cheese curds for an appetizer which were very satisfying. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. He explained the menu and the knew a thing or two about the beer. Not too many options on the menu but what they had was solid. I tried the texas fire steak which turned out to be rich in flavor and a tad spicy. The peppers and onions blanketed the outside of the steak which added an unpleasant texture, however, it paired well with the smoky flavor of their chocolate stout. Overall, it was a nice experience.

Over on the MIlwaukee River, downtown, you get the Rock Bottom, a chain of Midwest brewpubs. Lots of old school wood trimmings for the atmosphere, sports meets pub. Large inside and patio area. Quality is average as can be. Nothing disgusting, nothing to die for.

Service seems pretty meh about their job/beer. Selection is the normal stuff. I think the pub good is slightly above average.
