Smoked Baby Back Ribs*
Dry Rubbed Kansas City Style with a side of Sweet Sonoran BBQ. Slightly firm with a pink smoked ring.
Live band was a great touch for Friday night fish fry. Ability to reserve a table a head of time was perfect.
The food all tasted good. Some portions were outrageously large, others in comparison small. The service was good. However, we had made a reservation, so we waited for someone to acknowledge us after we walked in. When no one did, we just went and sat down as far as we could from the loud music. It didn't seem to matter that we had a reservation, although we told our server that we did. The place was busy and the servers were moving. The music was good, but we had come to talk (family get together), and it was hard talking over the music.
The chicken schnitzel was delicious and BOGO. We arrived early for the drink specials and ended up eating at the bar since we had a good bartender and were comfortable.
Terrible...had reservation and there was a sign to seat yourself. Service was horrible, very inattentive and never even checked back to see how food was,,which by the way
was horrible. Never brought us our water that was asked for. Never asked if we wanted dessert. Something terrible has happened to your restaurant and we will Never ever be back. It plain and simply sucked. Even the couple sitting next to us had complaints too...
If you are planning on going, Run away fast..
My wife and I were here for Valentine's Day. This was our first visit to Jerry's since it came under new management. I ordered the full rack of ribs and they were very good. If that had been the only food we had ordered, I would have likely ranked them higher, but my wife ordered shrimp scampi and was very disappointed in it. Our only other complaint was that my wife could not get the drink she wanted because the bar had run out of Southern Comfort. The staff was friendly and the service was good. The atmosphere was casual They had an accordion-tuba duo playing throughout the evening that was OK but if you are seated very close to them it can sometimes make conversation difficult. From my perspective the quality of the ribs made the trip here worthwhile. We will likely be back again.
Food was really good. Staff were very friendly and helpful
Love the Bogo Ribs on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s
We had a delicious dinner and our server was wonderful-Sat evening even enjoyed a musician who played his sax & German music
Did not need a reservation as they were quite slow. Interior was quite nice and it's my understanding that they are going through a transition. I felt that at $18.95 per person for the brunch buffet, there could have been more options/variety. My guest was fine as he eats meat whereas I do not. I would've loved to have seen something with a vegetable! There was a bowl with mixed fruit...
Friday Polka Band at 6:00 PM. No Miller products. Terriffic fish fry.
Drinks and service good.
Soup came same time as meal.
Food was dry, weiner schnitzel hardly any gravy & overcooked. The ribs half rack only 5 small ones. Not normal 7 big ones.
Red cabbage tasted ok but dry.
Very cold in there at first, had to leave jackets on. Overpriced for what we got. We drove from waukesha for meal, will never do that again, will not tell others was good place. Nice waitress.
The food was HORRIBLE and the service was worse, there was nothing redeeming about the experience.
Group of 5 went for Sunday brunch. First clue was that we were the only ones there, second clue was that we had to wait for them to bring out clean plates. Selection and quality of food was poor (how can you screwup waffles?). All of this for $18/each. I know one place I won’t be going to again.
Jerry’s Old Town is a terrific place with a great happy hour, excellent food, very nice servers, an owner who is there regularly and nice bartenders. Their fish fry is terrific. It is one of our favorite dining spots.
Didn't need a reservation for Sunday.
Too busy for one waitress. The bartender had to help, then another girl showed up about 6:30.
Minimal menu, which was a lil disappointing.
I thought the beer was good, the food was a little pricey. I had not been there in years and thought we would try something different. No problem getting a table on a Saturday evening which I thought was odd.
Wonderful atmosphere out in the suburbs! Great beer and food.
Went on a Thursday 515 pm. There were people at 11 tables at the time and 1 waitress covering all of them, She did the best she could considering the circumstances including busing the tables when tables were vacated. She was was very pleasant ( blond hair middle aged) but others including ourselves were frustrated at the waiting for refills on drinks,pay a bill, place an order,etc. had shrimp scampi which was ok didn’t care for the zucchini vegetable that comes with as did the other people at our table who ordered ribs and got the same zucchini vegetable mix as I did. Should have another option. Same with the ribs only option is frys, you may purchase a baked potato for $2.50. How about another option such as beans or potato salad. Ditch the zucchini or have other options. Ribs could’ve used more sauce. A small container with your order would have sufficed. Haven’t been to the old Jerry’s for a while and prolly won’t go back for a while.
Had the ribs great flavor, we will be back I have to try the pork shanks
The website is miss leading. I wanted the bierstube . I walked in there and they said if I had reservations I had to go to the restaurant. After having a meal in the restaurant I went back to the Bierstube and that was where I wanted to eat. I drove all the way there from Indiana and ate in the wrong place. The menus were different and I would’ve been happier had I ate in the original place I entered, which was the bar. We wanted German food. It’s misleading because you have no idea that they are separate places unless you’re a local.
Great food and service. Make sure to have the bacon wrapped water chestnuts!
I took young adult there to ecperience thw Wisconsin fish fry. They were not disappointed and enjoyed it. We got there early so no music but just before we left the German music began which was great and they loved the atmosphere and food.
Good food, good service, good atmosphere ... what more could we ask for?!
Would love to see German beer brought back for happy hour prices and not just three micro brews available for reduced price during happy hour.
We were pleasantly surprised on so many levels. The food, ribs and fried cod, were excellent. The ribs were tender and fall off the bone and the batter coating on the cod was light yet crispy and the cod was flaky. With both entrees the portions are large. The ambiance is cozy and fun. The prices are very reasonable.
We had a great beer-battered cod fish fry - one of the best I've had. It's noisy - between the crowd having a good time and an oopah band playing it was hard to converse. I'm sure the place is very authentic of real German eateries.
Being Good Friday, we arrived early for our fish fries. There was no Friday menu, but when asked the server mentioned the choices. I had to ask again for the individual prices. The baked cod and the shrimp dinners were average, at best. Two dinners, three beers and tip was $60, a little more than we normally spend on a Friday fish fry.
Super fun beer hall! Love the Friday fish fry and music!
We love the fish fry, and the fish (cod for her, perch for me) was crispy & tasty as always. Unfortunately the potato pancake was not up to the usual standard - it tasted more like something commercial than made in house
Loved the ‘new’ music duo (squeezebox & tuba) but the accordion could have used a mic.
We had our family 13in all new born to 56we all had a great time
The ribs here are fantastic! Thursday's buy one rack-get a rack free is a great deal. My wife and I will definitely be back!
Food was excellent. Waitress was outstanding. We will be back!
Hello, we have been coming to Jerry's since the 80s . We see not much has changed, the Ribs were tasty and French Onion Soup as well. Thought we would of gotten a bread basket with that meal? All around happy with everything. When I made our reservation for dinner I mentioned that it was our Anniversary Dinner and upon the confirmation it said that if we mentioned the Valentine special we would receive a free bottle of wine? Well I did ask about it and the waiter had no clue as to what I was talking about. I bit disappointed on that issue.
Thank you , Mr& Mrs Rangel
Awesome Fat Tuesday Event complete with music, dancing and the Muller Fasching Verein.
Excellent food great beers. Id go again and tell friends.
Fantastic food and great atmosphere. Although the server met our requests, service was slow with long waits between our requests. Overall, would visit again because of the delicious food.
Mozz cheese balls with ranch were amazing. We also ordered 2 sandwiches a black forest chicken sandwich (it was bland and screaming for a sauce, thankfully I saved my ranch from our app, this was what rhe sandwich needed or a honey mustard) and a burger with a side of french onion soup for dipping(the soup made the burger, otherwise the burger would of been meh by itself. The fries that come with the sandwiches were really good. Will come back for rib special and half price apps.
Excellent Service, Excellent Food with live music that was pleasing to hear while dining! Highly recommend you check it out!
The service was slow but other than that, it was good. The appetizers are amazingly good. Ribs were good and fish fry was good.
We made reservations but sign said to seat yourself. Took awhile for someone to acknowledge us but once our server started, it was great. The food was a real bargain since my husband wanted ribs. Every Thursday they have two for one ribs. He ordered one order and we took the other home. I had Bourbon Glazed Chicken which was delicious.
