Worst experience to date. Kitchen was backed up and our server explained this to us so we were fine with that. Quality of our steaks were poor. Most of our food was cold. Vegetable of the day looked like it was scraped from the bottom of the pan. Vegetables were from a frozen bag, not fresh! - We expect more from a fine dining restaurant. Very disappointed.

We order a bottle of the house Cabernet wine and was now real pleased with the taste. It was a very watered down taste. Also had a glass of the next up Cabernet which was better but we have enjoyed better wine than that as well. All in all our visit was very good. We will return again.

We always have excellent food and cordial treatment from Hans and the staff. This standard was maintained on a very busy New Years Eve and enhanced with great music and celebration.

We went to the Golden Mast for New Years Eve dinner. The food was fantastic, but the cocktails were terrible. We switched over to beer and wine, thinking one can’t really mess that up. Service was ok - there was extensive wait times in between ordering appetizers then dinner. When we got our soup/salad course we had a question regarding the soup ingredients (I’m a vegetarian and wanted to make sure there was no meat in the soup) and by the time our waitress came back to our table, the soup was cold and inedible. My son and husband ordered the steak and the were in heaven! Said it melted in their mouths!

Enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner at the Golden Mast. We had a great table next to a window with a beautiful view of the pier. Service, food and atmosphere were perfect for a blustery winter evening with friends.

This is a great date spot and just a quick visit out of the city. It also offers that different experience with that special touch that you just can not get at any downtown Milwaukee dining spots. I highly recommend this as a date spot it has amazing ambiance and character. The food and drinks also are on point and the service is what you would expect for a great dining experience. Check it out for yourself and enjoy!!

We love spending time eating and chatting at the Golden Mast. This time we reserved a window table in the bar. It was a quiet Tuesday night and the holiday decorations (inside and outside) were beautiful.

Service is always excellent, food fabulous and atmosphere wonderful. I recommend the Golden Mast to anyone for a perfect casual or dressy place to visit. Food has never disappointed.

The bartenders, the selection of beer and liquor was very good. The ambiance of the bar with live music was perfect. Service at the table by an 18 year employee at this restaurant was OK, however could have been better.
It was a very quiet night for customers , yet we were rushed.
The walleye almandine tasted like it had washed up on shore dead before it was cooked. The rest of the meals being steak shrimp and salmon along with the sides and salads were very good.

We usually love to dine here, but not as great of an experience this time.
We had reserved a window table, but did not get one, even though there seemed to be some available .
Asked for a wine list and were told the cocktail list on the table WAS the wine list! It had 2 bottles of each kind of wine listed, none of which we even recognized.
Food was good, but service not what we normally expect.☹️

Compliments to the Chef. The Lobster tail was Exquisite. Having had lobster tail, from two oceans and three different continents, the Golden Mast recipe was superb. Prime Rib was cooked rare and did not disappoint while the Oysters Rockefeller started the entire experience as a pleasant treat. Wine menu displayed many different satisfying wineries from different regions. Bottom line, great place and view.

I actually didn’t get to ear at Golden Mast for the second tine in a row. When we arrived the first time about a month ago. It was very busy and we waited FOREVER for someone to come to the front desk. When the hostess finally arrived she said we would have to wait at least 30-45 minutes for a table because she had so many walk ins. When I said we had a reservation she looked at me and said”I already told you, we had a lot of walk ins, what did you expect me to do? “. I was tempted to say “I think it is why they call it a reservation”but did not think that would get me anywhere.

Even though we were upset at how badly we were treated the last time, we decided to give it another go this week as we like the restaurant and eat there frequently. When we arrived, same thing! Waited forever for someone to pay attention to us at the front desk and when she did arrive told us we had to wait 30-45 minutes because they had so many walk ins. No apology, no sense that they gave a rip that we were getting horrible service again. I asked for the owner and she said I am the owner, what do you expect us to do? I said “I expect you to honor your reservation”. She looked at me as if I was some lower life form and said; “Let me guess, you made your reservation on Open table”. I said yes and she continued “I have been trying to shut them off since 4.30” I stood there incredulous that this had happened again and she just rolled her eyes and said again “what do you expect me to do?” I of course expect her to act like she is in a service business and carry on the service tradition of her family. Open table should take them off their website as they clearly have no intention of honoring Open Table reservations.
