We stopped at the Water Street Brewery on the way home from vacation. Being familiar with their excellent Milwaukee location, we decided to give their Grafton restaurant a try. The food and beer were exactly the wonderful quality that we expected. The service that we received was disappointing, Our server was "hovered" around our table and checked in far more... More

It was a last-minute decision to go to lunch here. We pulled into a very crowded parking lot. To our surprise, we were seated immediately and our server arrived within minutes. Service was great. The food was delicious and I saw a few items I would like to try on return visits.

We were visiting Grafton from out of state on 3-27-17, and enjoyed dinner, but were ripped off when paying. We had two American Express Gift cards that we used to pay for our dinner. One had $20 remaining & the other had $50. Our dinner was $40. Our server was Zach and we asked him to use the $20 on... More

The food was very good. But it s so hard to find a place with good service anymore. We waited for drinks, for the check, for boxes for leftovers...the taste of the food saved this review. Bad night?

Stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised to learn they offered brunch. We ordered the Carnivore omelet and stuffed french toast. Very good size portion. Came in respectable amount of time especially since it was very busy. Would also recommend the Jameson Jolt if you are a coffee lover. Definitely an eye opener but in a tasty way.

My definition of a perfect fish fry is golden brown, firm, very hot, melt in your mouth. If that is what you want, you'll find it here. Expect to wait about a half hour on Friday around 6 pm but a beer at the bar makes that time fly by.

I'm giving this restaurant a 5 for its living up to its great pub food! The Rueben is the best I've had anywhere thus far - I'm in my 40's and Irish! It has chunks of corned beef rather than the thin slices that some restaurants serve. Order the homemade chips and you are good to go! My 10 year... More

Went to lunch with a large group. Expected to have a long wait to be served but was surprised when it didn't take very long, considering how busy they were. Good food and good service.
