Place has great beer. Kind of a weird vibe w/ wood on the walls and chincy tables. Owner knows a lot of stuff but can be a bit crass. Don't look for a whole lot of conversation unless your his bro.
The Beer is the main thing though and it keeps me coming back.

This is the only bar in Milwaukee I make sure to visit every time I am in town. Perfect local bar feel with a well curated beer list, both tap and packaged.

Comfortable bar with outside patio seating. Great tap selection and "cellar". Sports and news on the multiple big screens, but this is not a sports bar. Owner Mike will point out that he runs a full service bar that features craft beer. Great guy to talk beer with too.

Bartender can be cantankerous but best beer selection!

Atmosphere- nicely designed clean bar with a patio. In a nice part of St. Francis. Can't think of any reason why I wouldn't want to go drink a beer here. Romans himself is a jovial fellow who loves talking beer. As long as you bring your craft beer chops, you'll be fine.

Quality- no shitty beer here. Even good borderline beer (Spotted Cow) doesn't get a handle here. If you don't feel like looking up taplists but want to be guaranteed 10-12 awesome beers and a few more pretty good ones, Romans' is your stop.

Service- If you're at Romans' drinking a beer, then Romans' himself poured you that beer. Can't beat that.

Selection- Well curated. I'd love it if he had 50 taps, because I know he wouldn't put anything he didn't approve of on any of them.

Value- yes. You'll get great beer at a good price.

Romans' isn't your typical bar. It's well-lit and clean. If you're looking for a place to take a frat house or a bachelor party, this isn't it (although I have the feeling he might say ok to a craft beer drinking bachelorette party...)

If you are looking for a laid back environment to enjoy awesome beer this is the place to go. If you are looking to rage I recommend looking elsewhere because Mike, the owner, makes it abundantly clear this is not the place for that. The beer is awesome and there is always something good to drink. Mike knows his beers and goes to great lengths to make sure that he is getting his customers the best beer he possibly can and that they are drinking at the right time. It is my understanding that this is one of the first bars in the area and the interior is almost unchanged which provides a great environment to enjoy those great beers. If you consider yourself a beer aficionado or an aspiring beer geek with a good attitude check this place out!

Mike, the owner, is actually a really great guy and more knowledgeable about beer than anyone else I've met. When it gets busy and he's the only one behind the bar, maybe he can come off as a bit short but I've had nothing but great experiences there. They also have never hesitated to let me try a beer before committing to a full glass. I love the place and go there every chance I get.

Best beer in the City of Milwaukee. Lines are cleaned almost weekly to keep the beer tasting great. The owner knows his beer and the menu is constantly changing. Only gripe is that the bar is a bit small. This place is a must on any beer enthusiasts list.
