Italian | Shorewood, Milwaukee

We arrived early but were set at our table while waiting for friends. Our table for 5 was private and bright - a pleasant space. I ordered the chicken Alfredo and Caesar salad. Both were very good. My husband ordered the cauliflower crust lamb pizza. Very dry and burnt to a crisp, with plenty of black charred crust. He was very excited at the option of a cauliflower crust, and his favorite meat, lamb, but the reality was a definite disappointment. Dry and relatively tasteless. More

American | Milwaukee, Milwaukee

We dined at Harry’s prior to attending a show downtown. While we arrived a few minutes late for our reservation due to some traffic complications, and were greeted politely & seated immediately. Our server was delightful and perfectly attentive. She even inquired as to whether we wanted our appetizer served before the meal or with it (Note: we hadn’t mentioned we were in a bit of a rush to get to a show.) Menu options are an amazingly wide array of delicious sounding things, and reasonably priced to boot. All three plates we ordered were delicious & nicely plated, and glancing at the food at the tables around us made us want to come back again to try other things (Fish Fry!). All around great experience in a casual yet classy atmosphere. Seems like a great place to have a fun dining experience w/friends! More

I've been to many steak houses throughout the states...I'm kind of a steak snob...lol. but the food and especially the service here was outstanding . I always tip on the check and cash because my wife is a server. They called and asked if I made a mistake tipping twice. I thought that was nice. More

Ethan was a fabulous server. It was my second time and my Mom’s first. We both had the French onion soup (amazing), lighter entrees (crepes) and finished it did with the lemon curd crepe and the chocolate Fondant for dessert. The chocolate Fondant is TO DIE FOR. So dark and creamy and delicious. It is perfection. Can’t wait to come back soon for brunch! More

Returned to T-Dubs for a Friday in Lent fish dinner. Everything was great, the food, the service and the drinks. We were greeted like we were part of the family, but since we don’t live in the area we only come occasionally. We will be back to enjoy T-Dubs again. More

Discover Wisconsin

Do you think skiing and Wisconsin go together? Now you can add food to that list! Due to a historically large Germanic population, you will find many heartwarming meals here. Hamburgers are loved in America, and Wisconsin took that to heart. Take some crafted, in-state cheese, add butter with the hamburger, and wrap with a bun. If you find yourself on the road, there are many varieties of Wisconsin sausage. You'll get hungry just thinking about the fresh cranberries, the official fruit of Wisconsin, and all the decadent desserts that include them. The discovery of lead brought miners from England that imparted their love of pasties, which is actually closer to a pot pie. While looking like an omelet, you’ll find an assortment of potatoes, rutabaga, onions, and meat inside Cornish pasties.
