Two Enthusiastic Thumbs Up!
Everyone from the host, to the water boy, to our server Michelle, made our overall dining experience very nice. The food & wine speak for themself. We're still talking about the seafood sampler!

Still a favorite
I've dined here a few times and have found it to be consistently good. If you are thinking seafood, this may be the best in town. A nice wine list, friendly and active owners and a nice cafe ambience add to the experience.

Great playbill find!!
Found the ad for this restaurant in the playbill for our show. We decided to give it a shot. Thanks to the great Open Table app, I was able to have a confirmed reservation *before* the curtain raised. Once at the restaurant, they went out of their way to give us great service and an excellent overall dining experience. The food was wonderful; seafood was exceptionally good and the steak was cooked to perfection. To finish off a great experience, the authentic Key Lime pie was exactly as we like it when we go to Key West. We *will* be back!!!

Bold flavors, fun interior
The vibrantly decorated Bosley on Brady has appetizers and entrees as creative as the décor. Strong, full flavors complement each dish in a unique way. The ahi tuna appetizer was delicious as was the seaweed which served as its ocean floor.
The scallop dish highlighted incredibly sweet scallops and the grouper laid atop a potato pancake was outstanding as well.

Not the Norm
First time at this restaurant with my once-a-month dining BFF. We've been all over the city and suburbs in the 5 years since beginning our tradition. Bosley on Brady definitely stands out among every place we've been. Awesome food, awesome decor and energy, awesome experience. We'll be back..

First Rate Dining Experience
Without a doubt, the meal I had at this restaurant ranks in the Top 5 for all of my dining out experiences. Every portion of the meal was excellent, highlighted by the salmon prepared with brown sugar and the blueberry cobbler dessert which is the best cobbler I had ever eaten. The service was also first rate! My dining partner also raved about the bruschetta appetizer and the shrimp and grits entree. I will be back and recommend the restaurant to any of my friends who visit Milwaukee.

We loved Bosley on Brady so much that my wife and I decided to come back for our anniversary. Everything was the same as our first time. Same great service and exceptional food. Definitely our new favorite place.

Diamond in the Rough
We are new to the Milwaukee area and have taken a foodie tour of the HIstoric Third Ward where we heard about Brady Street area and the Italian persuasion. So we headed to Brady Street (a through back to hippy days) for Bosley on Brady, using the Open Table reviews as guidance. It really is a diamond in the rough of Brady Street but interesting decorations with screen doors as dividers hanging from the ceiling. We felt very comfortable in the restaurant. The wait staff were awesome and engaging. The food was excellent. I had the grouper and my wife had the seafood melody, both very flavorful. Price was very modest and the price of the wine, after checking the internet, was less than 2 x what you would pay in a store. We recommend this place

We enjoyed our dining experience at Bosley on Brady. We were seated quickly, but it was busy so our waiter was not as available as we would have liked. We were not neglected, but could see that he was very busy. The food was excellent. We enjoyed the watermelon and feta salad more than expected, and the entrees were very good and nicely plated as well. We thought the pricing was a bit expensive, but the quality certainly was there. Nice, relaxing atmosphere as well.

And great atmosphere. A gem that is not obvious from teh outside.

Great dinner with great friends and our great waiter Skip!

The Salmon is GREAT! The butterfish is even better!

Took friends who live out
Took friends who live out of town there. Friends from east coast. Excellent meal. Very nice staff. One of our favorites. Fish is always very good
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, lovely environment
Everything was really good except the gravy on the steak. It had a weird taste... The fish and other items were delicious.
8/22/2013 5:00:00 PM
Fun seafood/fish menu
I had the Seafood Symphony, a sampling of sauteed fish, a large scallop, and shrimp over a risotto with broccolini. It was presented well and was very tasty. Our fried green tomato appetizer was good. My table mates both had the shrimp and grits entree, which they said was good, but not the best ever. Our server was still working on his timing, but was pleasant and attentive. The key lime pie was delicious, but I would have liked a crispier crumb crust. We had an enjoyable and "good to very good" dinner in a vibrant "nice casual" atmosphere. We will go back, especially for the wide selection of fish and seafood dishes. Great location on Milwaukee's lower east side/Brady Street area. (There are about 6 or so non-seafood entrees, as well.)

Love this charming place! We have been back 4 times this summer and it lives up to our expectations every time.

Key West Delight
The food was everything you could find in Key West and better. The Hot Summer Night Passion Salad was delectable and a perfect foreshadowing of the blackened Grouper that followed. This Florida favorite was served atop a well seasoned and tasty potato pancake appointed with a tangy mango lime salsa and topped with micro greens tossed with lemon olive oil. While the service fell short, failing to deliver the soup that was ordered, the server was most delightful as a person. This is a Key West Oasis in Milwaukee. Yes, we do eat here frequently and recommend it to others.

Great find in Milwaukee
Went for dinner while in Milwaukee during the H-D 110 Anniversary. Great find. Lived up to the reviews on Open Table and elsewhere. Food was excellent and the Manager and staff were very attentive and didn't mind a special request or two. Will definitely visit again next time I'm in the area.

consistently great food
Bosley has consistently good food and service. It is a favorite of ours.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
A large party ruined the ambience with noise level. We didn't realize they had jazz music playing in the background till after the large party left. The food was great especially the appetizers.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been here several times
We've been here several times since we moved to Milwaukee a year ago and the food is always wonderful.

Bosley never disappoints. This is our go to place in MKE. Mouth-watering steaks, wonderful wines and great service.

A coworker recommended this restaurant because she loves Key West and her family took her there for her birthday. Our family tried it the other night and absolutely loved the atmosphere and the food was spectacular. Not a morsel was left on our plates. Very talented chef! We will definitely be back. Also, fabulous happy hour specials. Highly recommended.

The food was, as always, very good. The biscuit that comes with the shrimp & grits was the only weak link. It seemed underdone and not that tasty. I remember having the same dish a couple of years ago and the biscuit was delicious.
The service was good, but when we were finished, our waiter disappeared for several minutes.
A reliable option for good seafood.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bosleys also great for dinner!
Have been there multiple times for happy hour (still a great deal!) and finally went for dinner, came away very satisfied. An appetizer special of whitefish cakes was terrific, as was the seafood medley (shrimp, scallop, salmon and grouper that night, all done in different styles) atop an excellent mushroom risotto. The shrimp and grits were marred by being overly salty (note to chef: compensate for the salty bacon when seasoning the rest of the dish?) but overall very satisfying. Noise level moderate, but that night the dining room was only about half full so it might be louder if they were fuller. Service first rate. All in all, very good.

Food was very good, but it was served in the wrong order. Wanted the tuna for the main dish, but it was served first. Then had tempura green beans for the dinner.......all wrong. Also extremely loud.

Fantastic Server & Great Food
Even if a restaurant has excellent food, the server can make all the difference. We had a great one at Bosley's and a not very great one at Wolf Peach last week which made us question going back there again. Been to Bosley's maybe 6 times in the last few years and it's always been a total 5 star experience for us.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM

Absolutely wonderful food and service!!!! Michelle and Nells were great!. The food was fantastic, good free desserts! our kids are regulars.
We love this restaurant food and service. I
Still LOVE this place and feel folks are missing out if they don't make reservations and give it a try.

Great place for seafood
We have gone to Bosley's three or four times now and are never disappointed. We usually choose a fish dish and are always happy with our choice. We dined there recently and sat after dinner for quite awhile finishing up a long conversation, and they never made us feel like we were overstaying our visit. This will stay on our 'favorites' list for a long time.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great grown-up night out
We had Bosley's before a play on a Friday night and were thoroughly pleased with the selection and quality of food. Most had seafood (that was delicious) and I had the filet which was outstanding. We loved the option of small plates or full entres and everyone in our party was able to find something that appealed to them. Great service and were in and out with plenty of time for our play. Great, great time--will definitely return.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff are all so very friendly. We dined on Halloween and all staff were in costume, making it even more enjoyable!!! The food is amazingly good..and the small plates allowed us to try multiple items.
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Outstanding All Around Experience
Key West themed restaurant in both its menu and charming, colorful decor. Menu has a lot seafood but also has some land lover items. Got the seafood sampler appetizer (calamari, shrimp, eggplant, clam strips, and crab cake), Mexican Fish Soup (very spicy), and the Blackened Grouper. Everything was delicious and unique from the presentation to the taste. For desert we had a little sampler of Key Lime Pie, Blueberry Tart, and Brownie w/ Ice Cream. We celebrated our anniversary so dessert came with a little sparkler for a nice touch. The staff was helpful, friendly, and paid plenty of attention to us. The owner talked to my wife for sometime about Key West. Overall A+ experience, only wish this place was in my neighborhood!

From beginning to end, everything was excellent. We'll certainly be back soon.

My husband and I went to Bosley's because we had a City Tin. We were pleasantly surprised! I had the seafood trio which was yum, yum yummy!! My husband had another kind of fish (meaty, steak like) that was ok. I think it was a little over cooked because it was a bit tough, Our server was awesome--I don't remember her name, but she had great conversation and provided yummy recommendations (and she was cute and sweet too!!) We would definately go back again and will recommend Bosley's to our friends.

Brady Street Gem
Enjoyed a birthday dinner on a Saturday evening. The tables were full, but the service was very good. Our server was attentive and appeared at just the right time. The variety of the items on the menu makes it possible for any eater to find something that they like. Warm fresh bread served before dinner always delightful. the Seafood Symphony was a nice blend of fresh fish, scallops and shrimp on a risotto that was well prepared with veggies. the special on the blackened NY strip was very good with a nice medley of vegtables. The steak was a little over cooked from what i asked for but was still very good. Amongst my veggies I found brussel sprouts that I have hated since childhood. these were sauted perfectly tender and flavorful.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Everything was just terrific. Blackened grouper was outstanding.

You'll love it.
Our food was very, very good to great! The ambiance is very good - energetic but not too loud. The only slight negative was that our waiter was slightly harried. It did not detract from a very good dining experience.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Bosley is our favorite restaurant, especially for special occasions, or when we need a good seafood fix. Also has a great happy hour with half price drinks and appetizers and sitting outside in summer on Brady St. is entertainment in itself.
