The Knick is very reliable
The Knick is very reliable for a great tasting meal. My halibut was just perfect and my dining companion was very pleased with the cobb salad. Thursday night is half off wine by the bottle so took advantage of that. Nice touch. Always a good experience at the Knick.

The Knick Dinner
We had dinner on a Monday evening. The pace of dinner was relaxed after we told the to slow down. They were cooperative and pleasant. The food was very good. In fact it is surprisingly good. Anyone going to the Knick will be pleasantly surprised.

Consistant over many years.
When we are in Milwaukee we try to have dinner at the Knick.

One of our favorite East Side
One of our favorite East Side eateries. Love the hummus appetizer and mushroom barely soup. Also one of the best "house" cabernet's in town.

Made a reservation per a recommendation from an acquaintance. Started with an appetizer Calamari that was fresh, lightly breaded and accompanied with a delightful sauce. Followed that with an order of Scallops that were tender, lightly browned and served with thin potatoes. They were large in size and excellent. My associate ordered the New York Strip Steak that was served medium rare and very tender. I might add we started off the evening with a Bombay Sapphire Gin martini and a Bloody Mary. Both were well portioned and great in quality and taste.

We chose to go to The Knick for Milwaukee's Downtown Dining week. We wanted to try someplace we had never been before and their menu sounded appealing. The food was delicious! I had the the mushroom ravioli and my date had the mixed skewers. Both meals were absolutely wonderful. The restaurant was busy, so the food came out a little slower than I bet is usual. The staff was always moving and seemed to have things under control. The restaurant was packed, so it felt like we were sitting very close to our neighbors. But overall, an excellent experience and I look forward to going back to try more.

As a new resident of the Milwaukee area, it is exciting to find great restaurants in the area. My husband and I decided to try The Knick for brunch because we could not make it for the Dining Week specials. Though the restaurant was crowded, we still feel like we received great service, and our meals were out in a timely manner.
The only thing I did not like was how close together the tables are; I didn't like the feeling that I could reach over to the next table and grab their plate.
With that being my only complaint/concern, I would say that I will absolutely be back!

This visit changed my mind
I have been unimpressed with The Knick in the past- mediocre food and indifferent service in a great location. But! Downtown Dining week changed that for me. We had a great waitress who served a lovely lunch. I am putting this back on the list of potential dinner places- especially with their $5 happy hour apps specials- ideal for summer patio time.

My boyfriend and I came here
My boyfriend and I came here for Downtown Dining over our lunch breaks and were very impressed with the service. We were able to enjoy a three course meal in under an hour without feeling rushed. As always, I enjoyed the atmosphere at the Knick and loved that we were able to get a table outside on a gorgeous day.
6/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for breakfast, lunch, dinner
The Knick has great food for every meal. Try the breakfast pasta or the chicken pita. The sweet potato fries are great too. Make a reservation--this place is busy!

Crowded but tolerable....Melia
Crowded but tolerable....Melia was a very capable waitstaff. Food was excellent but a bit expensive. Drinks definitely expensive for what was served.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was outstanding
Food choice was good. Great soup. Nice sandwiches. Dessert was good, but cake was a bit dry. Overall nice experience with a great setting and really great service.

I love the Knick because nothing ever mars the experience. The food, service, ambiance are all wonderful, so my friends and I concentrate on enjoying each others' company.

Really Nice Experience
My girlfriend and I were looking to go here and the night was perfect. She started with a chocolatini which was very tasty. We also went with their tater tots as an appetizer that were out of this world delicious. She is vegetarian and went with the chopped salad which was huge and very well put together, I chose the flank steak that was on special. The steak was prepared to a perfect medium rare. Nicely seasoned fingerling potatoes and sauteed vegetables came with the entree. The experience was very nice and would highly recommend it. Also I appreciated the valet service as we were there during the Lakefront Festival of the Arts and off street parking would have been difficult. Go visit the Knick you won't be disappointed.

It was Good
I have been there before. Love it every time, always have a great experience.

Great as always
Wonderful day great weather and great food. Highly recommend to anyone. Great ambience as well.
7/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
I've been to The Knick twice before and I again have enjoyed everything about my visit. The service was excellent- all waitstaff and hostesses worked together to ensure we have everything we needed to enjoy our meal. I special-ordered a chicken sandwich based off of the menu option, and our server brought my custom sandwich exactly as I had requested. She brought us several dipping sauces in case we didn't care for one of them, we still had other options. Our waters were always filled and we were not left waiting too long for leftover boxes or the bill.

Had a very pleasant outdoor
Had a very pleasant outdoor dining experience at the Knick. The outdoor seating area is very charming and the food is always well prepared. A couple of new items on the menu added to the overall excellent experience. Glad to be a regular.

Posh al fresco
On a busy Summerfest night, this place rocks. Parking - no problem a valet will handle it for you and for a few bucks no more. Outside table- no problem and no pesky mosquitoes. It was a perfect evening to sit back and watch the festin people go at it one more Saturday night. The gazpacho was superb and fish tacos delightful..... Add that to a great location near a great Lake one couldn't go wrong. If you wanted a cooler atmosphere, you could sit inside and enjoy the soft Musak. Don't forget the Knick in your next outing plans you won't regret it!

Met old college friends from Seattle for a night on the town in Milwaukee. Started with a drink at an outdoor venue near the Knick. Continued our reunion with dinner on the patio at The Knick. Our service was friendly, thoughtful but not overdone which put the focus on our table conversation vs. the waitress. We had calamari which was delightful along with the Anti Pasto platter. This is an amazing appetizer (we'd enjoyed before) and we highly recommend it for a group. There is wonderful variety, a heaping quantity of fresh (yes, FRESH) foods all presented beautifully. Dinner followed with good size portions of tofu, ribs and seafood salads. The onion vinigrette was especially tasty dressing. AND we thank you for the amazing weather!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Knick!
It's my go-to restaurant. I know the food and the service will be consistently great and I never have to worry about recommending it or entertaining out of town guests for a delightful dining experience. It's all good all of the time!

Good food, forgetful server
Thank you first of all for giving us a patio table. Food was great as usual, love the turkey scramble and the smoothies. If I have one nitpick, it was that they switched from little containers of strawberry jam to strawberry jelly. Our server was quite forgetful and she was the same way with the table next to ours. But, a great place for Sunday brunch on a lovely summer day, as long as you are lucky enough to snag an outdoor table!!!

Great Happy Hour...
I went to The Knick recently for happy hour, and I have to say that whomever made the drinks did a spectacular job. The only issues that others had was related to the food. It was felt a little more cheese could have been added to the Buffalo Chicken Nachos, and maybe spinach or something to the crab dip. Otherwise, I think myself and the others in my party are more than willing to return to The Knick, especially for the happy hour. You cannot beat a great drink with decent prices.

Dining before the theater
Our experience was very good. Our waitress was friendly and accommodating to our time limit needs. The food was good and the restaurant charming. Only suggestion might be to watch the room temperature. It was quite cool and a jacket was need. Overall, a very nice place.

Inventive yet standard
It was pretty quiet when we got there at 9 on a Sunday, but it quickly picked up. On our Open Table reservation we requested a patio or window table (It turned out to be too cool for the patio), but we didn't get a window table either. I wonder if they just didn't see the note.
I can't seem to muster any strong critique or heavy praise. It was very tasty, but it didn't blow our minds. It's a great compromise if you've got a party with both picky and adventurous eaters. My husband was very satisfied with his sausage, potatoes and eggs. I had the crab hash. It was very good, a huge serving as well. I only managed about half. Our server was helpful, quick and attentive.

Very nice neighborhood restaurant
Very nice neighborhood restaurant with a good wine by the glass menu. Entrees are tasty and interesting. Service is always attentive and knowledgable. The outdoor dining venue is very attractive and has heaters. I think of the Knick as a great place to go, relax and have a nice meal. It's a comfortable spot.

You don't have to be a New Yorker to like The Knickerbocker. Food is consistently good- different enough from their sister restaurants to merit a visit just off downtown. Food consistently good, especially for someone who likes vegetarian fare.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a lovely lunch for two at the Knick. Nice size salads for the price, cleanly, quiet, table was perfect, and service was spot on. The knick never disappoints. Great staff, food and atmospere. I think we had Katie and she is always a delight.

My family enjoyed our dishes: Turkey Scramble (delish!), French Toast and Sausage. Most of all, I really enjoyed the Lemon Basil Bliss Martini which proved to be a perfect partner for my meal.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Knick has become a neighborhood mainstay with quality atmosphere, service and food. In this case it was an early dinner before a weekend event. We made a meal of various selections of the appetizers, with their outstanding crab dip always our first choice. The service was paced perfectly. Despite dining early (6:00 PM) the room was well occupied when we arrived and nearly full as we left. As we hoped and expected, a very pleasant way to begin our evening.

The Knick was a hit
Stopped in for dinner before going to a show. The decor was incredible. The music was perfect. The waitress was great. The food was awesome. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Always a great experience!
The food and service at The Knick is consistently great.
Specialty drinks are amazing! This restaurant is a "first pick" for me when dining on the east side of Milwaukee.

Try the Salmon
Had a wonderful dinner here. Quiet enough to hold a conversation while dining. Had the salmon which was recommended by another person to us. It was fantastic.
Had a band that started at 9:30. Super fun and energetic crowd. Definitely going back.

Six of us went for brunch and found such a varied selection of choices, it was hard to decide. Everyone really enjoyed their meals, our waitress was attentive without being a nuisance, and the atmosphere was contemporary and comfortable with a hip edge. The portions were all very generous — I only had room for half of the incredible Breakfast Pasta. And when the bill arrived, I was pleasantly surprised how reasonable it was! I would highly recommend The Knick. I have been there in the past for dinner with the same pleasant experience.
