Welcome to Pitch's, where you feel immediately at home at the horseshoe-shaped bar. The jukebox plays great tunes, and you will probably find some neighborhood regulars sitting in the corner and re-living their glory days. Pitch's also serves fantastic ribs. We ate there last year but this year just popped in for a beer. We aren't ever disappointed.

Always a great place to stop on the East Side. Like sitting down in someone's Italian kitchen.. A Milwaukee Classic!

My husband and I wanted to have a fish fry we were going to try a "new" place, but decided we would go to a place we had not been to in awhile. Last time we came we were a bit disappointed with the meal. We wanted a drink so sat at the bar, and were taken care of well.... More

We met up with our son for dinner and decided to try Pitch's after hearing about it for years. We arrived about 5:30 pm on a Saturday night and aside from a group of about 15 people the place was empty. We were seated immediately and our server was there right away. We ordered drinks while we decided on our... More

I visited Pitch's Restaurant frequently in the late 70's and early 80's. Always ordered the ribs and hash brown potatoes. This visit was for my husband's birthday. We started with an appetizer combo of mozzarella sticks, fried eggplant and onion rings. Well prepared. Ribs were fall of the bone and delicious but I must warn that the sauce was an... More

We had 6:30 reservations for a party of sixteen people. We arrived right on time and were seated immediately. Our beverages and salads arrived in a timely fashion but then had to wait until 8:00 for our dinners to arrive. The owner totally ignored us when we tried to talk to him about the situation. We should have been given... More

7 of us stopped by for dinner and cocktails. Waitress really knew her stuff. Drinks were perfect. Our appetizer of mozzarella sticks and fried egg plant were the best I have ever had, our main meal, I chose the ribs, which they are famous for and also the Sicilian filet which was cooked perfectly. Others had salmon, shrimp, pasta, and... More

Nice menu of steaks and Italian selections. Rib are very good. I like the Chicken Marsala a lot. Even the appetizers and burger is very good. Check out the daily specials. Fun bar crowd if you just want to come in for a drink as well.

I bought a promotional certificate to try this place and will return! It has been in business since 1942! It is a modest looking building from the outside, but offers updated linen tablecloth service inside...supper club style. The owner and staff were so very friendly...food was exceptional. We had steak/ribs combo and walleye. Nice breads, homemade chicken noodle soup,...decent prices.

This is a true old fashioned supper club. I don't think a thing has changed since we were last here in the 70's. Their claim to fame is ribs and they were falling off the bone. I did not care for the sauce--very tomato based. Every entree comes with soup or salad and your choice of potato. Service was excellent.... More
