Dobie's was recommended as an old school supper club complete with lazy Susan. We arrived at 5:30pm on a Saturday night with no reservation (we suggest reservations) and waited about 45 minutes giving us time to enjoy their old fashions. The restaurant is relatively small, fully decorated for Valentine's Day. The decor is from the 60's giving it a warm... More

I love this place. It is my go to for a great steak or salmon. The lazy susan tray is amazing. The decor may be a little outdated but don't let that fool you. Food Amazing!! I love Dale and Julie and hope there children or grandchildren take this place open to keep it open.

The beverages went not being taken care of throughout service. We waited 45 minutes for the bill. And dishes piled up until the end of service. Not sure... More

Dobie's has been around for years. We love their lazy susan. While it is lazy and doesn't turn you'll soon forget that for the wonderful variety of appetizers on it. Their food is well prepared and consistent. Consistent seems to be a challenge for many restaurants but not for Dobie's. Why? The owners are in the kitchen cooking and supervising... More

Best Shrimp I have ever had! They are huge, at least twice as big as gulf shrimp. The relish tray is unique and really good. It included Swedish Meatball, Beets, pickled corn, pickled green beans, cucumbers in cream sauce. Excellent!

I have been here a number of times in my life. As usual, the petite filet was to die for. I have never been disappointed with my food here. The French onion soup is delicious. The lazy susan had a cucumber salad on it that was sooo good. The service was wonderful. My husband, who was out of town, was... More

Everyone reviews this place as the best in town. I must disagree. I ordered my 40 dollar steak medium well. Recieved the steak more like medium rare. Poor service, over priced food, i will not visit again.

Dobie's will not disappoint! Best steaks in Milwaukee. I love jumbo shrimp, a favorite of mine for 40+ years. A wonderful Super Club experience including a Lazy Susan.
