Like the old timesy decor, big menu, good food, moderate prices. Go there and enjoy. It's probably fun at night and for a sporting event too.

On our couples weekend we tried this restaurant. We were disappointed because our experience was "just OK". The food came out quickly. Our server was attentive and friendly, but forgot our drinks. The food choices didn't provide us with excitement in trying something new. If you're looking for a basic sandwich, near the Bradley Center, this might be your place.

We arrived at 6:30 pm as we got caught in traffic, but planned on attending a 7:00 pm Buck's game. They were packed and while I didn't mind being a little late for the game, I didn't want to miss most of it. I asked the Hostess about the situation and She smiled and said it's a common occurrence at... More

Longest bar east of the Mississippi. Bartenders in white shirts and black bow ties. I was in Milwaukee for a week, 3 days work, 4 days vacation/Packer game at Lambeau. I met bar tender Terry my first night in town. Very personable and knowledgeable on all things Milwaukee/Green Bay. As my family flew into town during the week, we all... More

I had a fish and shrimp combo that was one of their lunch specials. The fish and shrimp were good with large portions. Cole slaw was average. French fries, average. My only complaint was that the waitress said the special I ordered was about fourteen dollars as best she could remember--she wasn't sure and there was no printed list of... More

Got here early enough in the evening for it not to be crowded. Our waitress was very good, serving drinks, and taking care of us. The food was delicious, I had a chicken breast sandwich and fries. Prices are very reasonable. I've only been in here before when it was "crushed", so it was pleasant to be here when it... More

I went to Buck Bradley's for dinner before a concert downtown, it had a nice bar. Service was good; however, the food (I had fish-n-chips) was marginal. Cannot believe this restaurant/bar is #50 in Milwaukee. Good place for a drink - skip the chow.

While we were in town, we caught a ball game. Buck Bradley's offers free shuttle ride to/from the game. We had a couple drinks there. Met the nicest bartender "Jimbo". After the game, we came back to the bar to have another drink and to my surprise he remembered us and it was like talking to an old friend. Very... More
