Opened the bottle of ketchup and it exploded all over our entire table like a shaken bottle of Coke. Ketchup was in our faces, in our hair, in our glasses. All over our clothes... it was pretty bad. The manager was completely avoiding us until we spoke up. They said, "This happens a lot, maybe because we keep refilling the bottles.." Which is very illegal. I feel like a health inspector would have a hay-day at this place.

The service was slow, it took over an hour to get our food making us almost late for our show and when we talked to the manager about our concerns, he acted like he could care less and just wanted us out. I have never been at a restaurant where the manager doesn't try to make it a pleasant experience for the customer to want to come back again.

Maybe it's just my old fashioned, Midwestern upbringing-perhaps I'm just not as snooty, or maybe I lack a well trained palate, but I thought this place was great! This past Saturday night, we had a large celebration there with 13 people, and the restaurant and every one of the staff were very accommodating! We tried a few other places around the area, and they either didn't take reservations for that many people or couldn't fit us in, so we booked here, but were hesitant because of the reviews. I couldn't have been happier. The bartenders were happy and helpful, the waiter was awesome and very knowledgeable about every food item and every drink on the menu. We weren't the easiest bunch to deal with either, there were 5 small children, and most of us kept moving around the table to talk and watch the kids, but every time our drinks and food were correct. We ordered from the drinks menu, and appetizers and main menu. And while I probably may have a better prime rib sandwich in my lifetime yet, I had no problems with this one. I don't expect a mind-blowing, life changing sandwich for $11. But what I got was a very good sandwich, with plenty of fries and I did my best to finish it all-and I'm a fat guy who loves to eat. The scotch eggs were awesome, the onion rings were great, and the rest of our meals were consumed without issue. They validated our parking, for three vehicles, and honestly, couldn't have been more nice. If it wasn't for the fact that I despise downtown Milwaukee and the trolls that live there (probably writing previous reviews of this place), I would be certain to visit again!! One thing to note, the actual address is 100 E. Wisconsin, not 100 W Wisconsin as listed.

As mentioned in many other reviews, the service here was awful. I don't have time to list everything wrong with our dinner but here is a quick summary. Food took 80 minutes to finally get to our table... 3 of the orders were wrong while the others were cold. Two of us thought the food was so bad that we decided not to eat more than a few bites. We asked the manager to come to our table to talk and he agreed to offer us a discount off our meal. However, the discount didn't even cover the the costs of the meals that were barely touched. While we were waiting for our food, we heard another guest state that if a manager didn't come to their table, they were going to leave..... Definitely not an isolated incident. There are too many other good restaurants downtown.... Avoid the hassle.

Looks like a great place on the river. Looks are deceiving! We waited 15 minutes, no one acknowledged us, and all staff avoided eye contact. Thinking we could get better service at the bar, I walked over and asked the bartender if we could order food there. No eye contact and rude response! We dine out alot and were visiting from a nearby town and our recommendation is never, ever go to this place! Walk down the street and go to the Irish Pub - friendly and great service!

What a joke. Was in town with two coworkers and we decided to visit this place. There was no line, so we went in and waited to be seated. We waited for nearly 15 minutes before anyone ever even acknowledged we were there, even though the staff definitely saw us waiting. Our waiter was rude and flippant the entire time. When I got back to the hotel, I checked my account and realized that he overcharged my card even the though the receipt I received at the restaurant was for the correct amount. The food was mediocre. Will never be returning.

NEVER COMING BACK. RUDE LYING STAFF / MANAGEMENT AND ROTTEN FOOD!!!! Save your money and your health and eat at the Rock Bottom across the river. Visited this place 3 times. The first 2 times everything went well, not so on the 3rd and last time. The sauce on the food my party including a pregnant woman received was left out in the sun too long and went bad. When we dared to complain the staff first lied about who the manager was and brought some older looking waiter to talk to us. This waiter then proceeded to be extremely rude to us. His attitude was "how dare we bother him with this crap." Then a new would be manager stopped over. According to her there was no manager on duty and she was off the clock and just happened to stop by. She offered us a comp, which we graciously accepted. But just then a rude short little woman showed up from behind the bar and entered her self in the situation. Yelling at us and threatening to call the police she said that she was (get this) the manager and that we have to pay for everything and then leave. After giving us rotten food then lying to us they then yelled at us made it all our fault. Eat at your own risk to your physical and mental health. 33% chance of food poisoning and undue stress are bad odds
