What a wonderful restaurant. In business since 1902 and still going strong. The food was delicious. I had the potato pancakes and crab cakes. Very large portions. Other members in my group ordered true German dishes and they said the food was delicious.

Great German food from a restaurant that has been in business since 1902 and been in the family for four generations.

Nice spot to sit at the bar and have a few good German ales. The restaurant looked really nice and very authentic but didn’t stay to eat (no crispy roast pork knuckle!). Nice service and friendly people.

If you are in Milwaukee and LOVE German food, GOOD German food, visit Mader's. My husband and I had a very enjoyable (and delicious) meal at Mader's.

There's no doubt Mader's knows how to serve up great tasting food. The service was very good also. What was lacking was the temperature of the soup and main dish. All three meals ordered, the food was served warm at best. If this would have been just my wife and I out for lunch, we would have asked to have our meals sent back. Considering this was my dad's day, he just decided to leave things go and enjoy the meal as is. Great tasting food, very good service, just need to focus on getting the meal to your customer's hot.
