A limited menu but very happy with our selections. Good cheese curds, very interesting Brussel sprout salad. The entree was outstanding - Beef short rib very tender with the creamiest mashed sweet potatoes I’ve ever eaten.

The food was Great! We had the Cheese fondue, the Brussel Sprout salad with chicken and the pork chop. All were really very good, seasoned well, decent portions, and the pork chop was juicy and not dry. There was only one server on a Sunday night before Memorial Day weekend so he was swamped. It didn't help that a table with 7 or 8 kids showed up. No biggie if you are at Red Robin, but this was a nice restaurant and while the parents all talked on one side of the table the kids goofed around on the other side. They were running around and loud, so that kind of took away from the experience. You have to bring something for a kid to do otherwise they are not going to sit in a chair while you have a peaceful dinner with your friends. It is not the server's job to babysit. The food was really good though, check it out and hopefully you won't get a bunch of kids coming in. HA

We had the soft pretzel to start, it was delicious. We loved the horseradish mustard dipping sauce. Then I ate the tomato basil soup and shaved Brussels salad which was THE BEST SALAD of my year!!! Delicious flavors and great textures. We will go back for another meal!

Our waiter was extremely slow even though the place was empty. The food was okay, we all ordered the only burger on their menu because it seemed like the only thing decently priced. Overall fine experience, but nothing would draw me back there whatsoever.

I had been to Millioke several weeks ago for a Saturday brunch and really liked it. We had concert tickets for Saturday evening Avett Brothers concert so I suggested it for pre-show dinner. It was excellent. Good service, wonderful food, good beer and wine menu. The rest of my party, who had never been there before, said they would definitely come back.

We waited an hour for our food in a mostly empty restaurant. I asked two waitresses to bring my husband the beer he ordered twenty minutes before that. There were at least 6 items we tried to order that they no longer serve but are still on the menu. The kids menu had four desserts on it but none of them were available so instead I was offered carrot cake but never told it is $8 per slice until the bill came when I told her we no longer would be needing the cake. I am not paying $16 for two kids to eat cake... our overall bill was just shy of $70 for four people and I felt like with the service we received it should have been $20. Will likely not return.

This was our first time here and we had a wonderful meal. The staff is nice and the food is high quality. Although the menu is small, the items are all good. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal, but the Pork Chop got the rave review! We will go back.

Do not go if you like open table points, I was trying to choose between two based on burgers and cheese curds. They both offered 100 points (at least from what I remember) when making the reservation, but when I finished eating and got home, Open Table emailed me it didn't qualify for points which makes no sense. I would absolutely have gone somewhere else.

As for the restaurant, the servers are friendly and the food is good, but it is a sports bar and incredibly loud. There is nothing to break up noise and it will bounce off everything. Expect to hear every conversation, cheer, yell and cackle. If you want a loud sports bar (that can be fun, especially if your team is playing and winning) with really good cheese curds, this is for you. If you want to relax while watching a game and also get your open table points, go somewhere else.

I can't answer this honestly, because we didn't eat. Our reservation (via OpenTable) was for 11pm, but the kitchen closed at 11, so we didn't stay. We told the hostess that someone should update OpenTable, and to their credit, it looks like they did.

The hostess was very pleasant but the restaurant was empty and still took them a while to find us the "right" table and then I think they were short of servers because that process took a very long time. And then every new question we had about the menu and or options she (Chloe) had to go the the kitchen to check. She might have been new, but clearly needed much more training. The server forgot to enter one of our 6 entree's and the service was super slow. Also the pork shop was very smokey flavored, not listed on menu. And it was not BBQ flavored but more of the imitation smoke flavoring that sometimes is used but it was not fully cooked off. Also the meat and cheese board was very basic. It wasn't specified what would be on it and the server didn't really know. However it was basically salami with cheddar and Parmesan cheese. Not gourmet like others in town. Especially for 17.00
Overall not impressed with what was a clearly not a busy restaurant, and now I can see why.
Sorry to be a downer, but its what we experienced.
Thanks!

Went for early dinner on a Monday before a show at the Riverside so we had the place to ourselves. Waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. The beer cheese dip appetizer was very good and the mac n' cheese was as well. We also had ceasar salad with salmon and the salmon was excellent! Would go back for a pre-show dinner.

Food was very good, service was good, but not exciting. The place was empty when we came in except for a few people at the bar. Was not aware it was part of the Marriott Property but a great restaurant overall food wise. Good quality was good. I mentioned that I had made a reservation but because it was empty I am not sure anyone cared or even confirmed my reservation as I usually get a quick email from OpenTable with points confirmation and I have not received it.

Millioke was disappointing. The menu looked great and we were excited for the drink list.

We were 1 of 4 tables in the restaurant. The hostess who seated us was polite enough but it took them several minutes to acknowledge us as we stood awkwardly looking for an employee.

The menu was a quite different from what was advertised on OpenTable and their website.

Our biggest issue was our waiter, Rob. He was so unbelievably rude to us. He mocked my husband by mimicking him which we found so bizarre.

We ordered a couple apps but decided to skip ordering entrees because we didn’t want to be at Millioke anymore.

I wanted to speak to a manager about our experience but one was not around. I tried emailing and calling - no response.

I would avoid this place, unless you’re in the mood for an abrasive unpleasant meal outside of Dick’s Last Resort/Ed Debevics.

Have always liked this restaurant but the menu has been very scaled back and the server did mention this to us. It was not very crowded for a Friday but the service was not anything to write home about. After our food came out (50 minutes later) the server never checked back with us until we were almost finished and we just needed mayo for a burger that was a little dry. My friend had a salad and mentioned the chicken was very dry as well.

We were looking for a Sunday bite to eat & used Open Table for a list. Millions popped up. It was great. Perfect craft cocktails. Great burgers and the added sides of roasted brussel sprouts with bacon was delicious.
Great service. A total surprise in the most positive way.

Not very good. Service was slow, but not terrible. The real problem was the food, which had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time. None of the 4 dishes we ordered appeared to be fresh. Drinks were expensive and tasted watered down. Would not go back.

Had 6 pm reservations for New Years Eve. No indication that the menu was prix fixe for the evening until we arrived. Menu was super limited. Their website showed the menu was prix fixe starting at 8. The waiter seemed like it was his first day in the restaurant industry ever. Didn’t know the menu or simple cocktails. Apps came quickly but drinks came very slow. Had to order another round when the first came because it was 30 minutes before he would be back with the drink order. No attention was given to any of the 4 tables for almost an hour. At 7 the food arrived and the management staff must arrived because we were asked multiple times how things were. After such a terrible experience we didn’t say anything because we were just happy to be eating. 1 1/2 for dinner service for 4 with an empty restaurant is not great service. Won’t be back.

Everything was fine until our server tried to push a TripAdvisor review on us and we'd save 15%. It felt a little too pushy. The process was a little too convoluted and took forever. I'd suggest offering a coupon that gives you 15% off your next visit so the customer can fill it out on their own time. It just grew more and more annoying. I would have left perfectly happy had they never offered this discount.

6:00 on a Saturday night, and they were already out of 3 menu dishes and one craft cocktail. How can a bar be out of one of their own designed craft cocktails? Drinks we did order took forever to get. Service could best be described as spotty and slow motion. I had been there once for a business dinner and recalled it being much better. After this however, I would not return.

We (two of us) really wanted to like this restaurant, we really did! The reviews were quite favorable, and the concept great. We agree with other reviews about the physical aspects of the restaurant - the space is very unique and inviting with the arches and the brick interior. Someone mentioned the comfort of the chairs - and yes, they are very comfy! But the service...oh boy. It's unfortunate that this was the deal breaker, but the food was pretty much meh, so it it wasn't enough to make up for the server. She was very nice and sweet, but we hope the she has a day job. She was sloooow and inexperienced. After waiting for 30 minutes for our food, she brought the salad with our meals that were lukewarm at best. The fries were actually cold. She messed up coffee (long story, and I would rather forget), 20 minute wait for dessert that she brought without forks (had already forgotten flatware for other parts of the meal), forgot to bring the bill. The customers next to us got up and left after she pretty much forgot they were there after she delivered water 20 minutes prior. Oh - she had 2, maybe 3, tables to serve, in case you wondering if perhaps she was too swamped. They were also out of their signature cornbread and tater tot app- already at 5:30 on Saturday? The ratatouille that I ordered was pretty bland, and my husband had the burger - he said it was ok.
If anyone dose decide to try the place out, hope you have a better experience. It just wasn't in the stars for us.

We ended up here because our originally scheduled location had a very long wait. 7 of us were seated right away, which was nice. The food was good, very Wisconsin. I would recommend the following: Cheese Cornbread and Cheese Fondue to start. Both were very tasty. For dinner we had a hodge podge of items. I had the Milloke Burger without a bun and the fried. The burger was nothing special. I have had better and the burger itself was small. I would not order it again. The bacon wrap shrimp and the soup were table favorites. The soup was a heavy cream soup and the cup was very large. The soup alone can be a meal.
