Great beer, fish fry and fried cheese curds. How do people in Milwaukee stay in such good shape with food like that! I'd be in trouble if I lived there. Definately a great stop if you want a local slice of Milwaukee Food and beer!

We visited Lakefront Brewery during a “hop-on-hop-off” bus tour, which I would highly recommend. We went on a Saturday so the place was packed however we did manage to find a table as they set them up like a huge beer hall...makes sense given it...More

Lakefront Brewery is fantastic. We visited here on a Tuesday and it was packed. The wait for food and beer was short. We ordered the fish basket, a few bratwursts and, of course, the cheese curds. Please, please do not visit Lakefront without ordering the...More
