Diner Reviews
  • "The night we went there was at least one large after work function that was followed by an even larger party for a reunion. The consequence was that there was no wait staff for individual diners. I had to get up to ask for our server, and we were seated by the kitchen. We waited a long time for our order to arrive, and when it did, the entre came at the same time as the starters. We ordered featured specials for the evening, and the fish fries were cold and greasy from sitting out so long. To be fair, the larger groups looked like they were having fun, but I did hear people from the reunion going to the bar because they could not find the servers for their event."

  • "Had never been before but will definitely go again. Great atmosphere and friendly employees. Food was good too. Anxious to come again and order off the menu as we were there for the Mother's Day Brunch. We will be back!"

  • "We came here cause I heard the cheese curds were great. The atmosphere was great. The cheese curds were very very salty. Hard to eat. The pizza was just ok pizza. As far as the sandwiches, amazing! Huge portions! The speciality cocktails were really good! Service was good at start, but we had to ask for our server to come back after like 30 min for another drink and she came back with the check! So we just paid and left. "

  • "We had a gift card for Jackson's but I'm sure we would have tried it at some point either way! Good food, service and loved the ambiance of the downtown location - lots of history. Their outdoor area looked great so we'll return another time to enjoy that. We went on a Friday night and parking was scarce - the only downfall."

  • "There were five of us that dined, our favorite things we ordered were the fish fry beer battered shrimp, cheese curds, and the chili. The portions are large, and prices are reasonable."

  • "We had made reservations and were actually running a few minutes behind, but had called and let the restaurant know. they still had our table waiting - which was awesome!! there was some confusion between the staff and we ended up waiting a long time before anyone came over for our drink order. we weren't upset about waiting, but the manager paid for a round of drinks to make up for the mishap and was extremely apologetic even though we kept telling them it was alright - mistakes happen. the food was FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC. the cheese curds alone were worth the wait. so melty and delicious. I had the Pizza Burger which was very delicious. My boyfriend had a b.y.o.burger and really enjoyed it. we loved it!"

  • "Connected to the Brews Inn and Suites, where we had a hotel for the night. Not all that romantic but if you drink (we don't) you would love this place. The food was good (the clam chowder was awesome) though not great (entrees) and the selection was so so. Would recommend trying for people visiting Milwaukee."

  • "I had the blackened sword fish which was very good. My husband had the steak sandwich which was also very good but it came with a peppercorn sauce that was a little thin. Server did his job but could have been a little more friendly. We were there on a Sunday so it wasn't noisy but could possibly be on a Saturday because there were very tall ceilings. I would recommend this restaurant."

  • "Food is just pub food. Nothing spectacular. Ambience is loud and energetic. Not your place off you're looking for conversion during your meal."

  • "This place is close to the BMO center where sports events usually are going on so it can be crowded. Big screen TVs for watching these events. It was VERY NOISY the night we went, but we had a good time. I think the extremely high ceilings in this old converted building are the cause for the noise level to be so high. We made a reservation, which I would strongly suggest on a busy weekend night. The Nachos for two as an appetizer was HUGE. A ton of lettuce, maybe a little too much, could've used more chips and cheese - but tasty. The cheese curds are awesome, filling! And a nice mug of beer - mm good. This was our 2nd time here and both times were fun."

  • "The renovation of the old Pabst brew house is absolutely amazing and Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub compliments this renovation perfectly. We went for lunch and found the ambiance very fun and inviting. Our server was delightfully friendly, very helpful and perfectly attentive. The food is excellent pub food and yes the cheese curds are the best I have had. My mother and Aunt, who was with us, had grown up in the area and their parents had operated a German restaurant, the Forst Keller, just a block away in the old Methodist Church. Our server informed owner Mark Zierath who had a great conversation with us about the history of the area. His genuine interest in hearing the history made an already enjoyable experience absolutely marvelous!!"

  • "My wife and I ate before theater and restaurant was half full so we were seated immediately. Quick service by waitress for drinks and dinner order. She also cleaned off table due to some sticky residue without asking. My wife's wrap was large and she took half home. I had the perch fry. Nice and crispy but cooked too long and was on tough side. Salad was great."

  • "Last Friday was my first time to Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub. I went with one friend, and we both had the fish fry. She chose the salad as a side, and I chose the potato pancakes with applesauce ($1 extra). All was very good. I think the cole slaw was a little skimpy, but the two pieces of fish plus rye bread, etc., were a good size. The waiter was very nice, although clueless about the food and drinks as he was brand new. I do want to go back so I can try some other food. The ambience was fun and the place was full. I also recommend taking a peek next door at the hotel. It's very cool with keeping the original brass drums. Each room is a suite with a kitchen. Upstairs has retro couches and a beautiful, original winding staircase."

  • "Our niece and nephew were in town from Idaho, and we wanted to take them to a cool place to show off Milwaukee. I have been to the Blue Ribbon Pub a couple of times before, and have never been disappointed. We had the jalapeno poppers, and they were fantastic! So was the flank steak sandwich, the French Onion soup, and the build your own burger. Great beer list as well. If you're looking for a sure hit, this is the place to go. Good size portions, so come hungry!"

  • "Our server, I'm guessing as trained to do, repeatedly interrupted us to ask unnecessary questions. Within 2-3 minutes of being seated, when only 2 of our group 4 had arrived, asked if we would like to place our order before the other guests arrived. Asked how our cocktails were. While eating asked 3 times how the food was. Brought leftover boxes to 2 guests while other 2 guests were still eating. Then brought bill WITHOUT asking if we wanted coffee or dessert. We felt rushed in a very empty restaurant."

  • "Bar food done well. Good portions. Service a bit slow mostly on drinks due to bar being so far from outside patio. Hostess was tattooed and pierced and that creates an immediate negative impression on the place. Leaves one wondering where they are. There is a place for that but not with the customers first impression. Will return, food quality and portions very good and location is up and coming. I expect this will be a hot spot for some time. Would return."

  • "We took our grown kids and granddaughter to Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub after church last Sunday. The Bloody Mary bar was fabulous, boasting everything from cheese curds to slim jims to shrimp. We ordered 3 appetizers, the Jalapeno Poppers, Fried Green Beans, and Cheese Curds, all wonderful with great dipping sauces. Our entrees included Eggs Benedict from the brunch menu and four different sandwiches, served with a choice of sides and very tasty coleslaw. All sandwiches were huge, and several of us took home enough for Monday's lunch. Our server was mellow and helpful, and knew the menu well, helping us make wise choices. The building is a slice of Milwaukee brewing history, very cool! We will return soon and often!"

  • "Our party of four had a wonderful meal and fun two-plus hours at Jackson's BRP, tucked away in the new Brewery development at the former Pabst Brewing site (10th and Juneau) in downtown Milwaukee. The expansive outdoor patio and a live music helped to create a vibrant yet comfortable vibe. The Friday evening fish fries were well-prepared and moderately prices ($14 for a six-piece lightly fried perch dinner with the extras, at the high end). Service was prompt, attentive and unobtrusive. The indoor dining area also seemed well designed; with high-top tables and a few well-placed large-screen TVs. It had a higher-end sports bar feel without an overload of TVs dominating the space. Exposed cream city brick gave it all a historic setting."

  • "We were there on Friday 6.01. It was a little cold outside so the music had to be moved inside which made it a little too loud. I can not wait to go back and listen to music on the patio."
