This one has a great location; the best one from their chain I know, and the best location in town. Right in front of the water, in a sunny afternoon, a nice place to have a beer, and watch the boats and people passing.
The place inside is quite standard, and I am not sure I would go on a rainy or cold day.
Usual pub fare, nothing special. Decent beer selection covering most major styles, not bad, not great either. Otherwise, a mediocre selection.
Staff has memorized the beer descriptions, but really know nothing about it.
Worthwhile for the location.

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.
