Located in the heart of Riverwalk, this place is ideally situated outdoors on the river near the Edelweiss cruse line and Bronze Fonz. They only serve their own beers, and the food was average at best. Margaritas were good, but other mixed drinks disappointed. We...More

After 10:00PM you can get a Pub Burger & Fries for $5...and they discount the brew, as well. We had the nachos before "Late Night" and they were satisfactory. Overall, a "Deal" worth going back for on next trip to Milwaukee Riverside.
