I went here with a conference. Sandwiches were a bit soggy, chili and iced tea were okay. Drinks, although expensive, were good. Not very impressed. Pass.

We are a "Saloon and Eatery." The restaurant was established in 1995. It was built to suit the building that was completed circa 1884, thus "Saloon and Eatery." When you walk in the bar was built to give a turn of the century feel. Our menu features traditional bar food, 1/2 pound burgers and chicken sandwiches, Cheese curds (we are in Wisconsin) and Sausages from Usingers (our neighbor across the street), to name a few items. Was it mentioned that the bar is 75 feet long!? The bar is touted as the longest straight shot bar East of the Mississippi. Its quite a sight. Come in and have a drink at Milwaukee's long bar and enjoy a burger too!
