They don't have a set menu...just a refrigerated glass case with ingredients. You give them an idea of what you want based on the ingredients and they make you an amazing meal!

Sports bar covered wall to wall to wall with great sports memorabilia. Menu on the wall, but the chef(s) will cook anything thing in the display case the way you want it. Bacon wrapped scallops and the bone-in ribeye is always my favorite. freshly stuffed jalapeno poppers were delicious.

Why serve food here - if you have no pride in what you serve. We knew it was neighborhood pub, thats not the problem, when charging $70 for crab legs - stand behind it -it wasnt fresh, it wasnt a lb. Chicago has great neighborhood pubs selling Alasken CrabLegs - basket of them for $30 - We were not afraid to pay $70 for good food - but not for what served Sat. Visit HalfShell - better yet - take crab off your menu. It was a turn off of your neighborhood pub.

Good restaurant/bar which doesn’t look like much from the outside but has a cool concept of displaying fresh food in a refrigerated section and you pick your items and tell the cook how to make it.

We went to Fourth Base at the recommendation of a friend and we were thoroughly impressed!! The service was amazing, our waitress Gail was super nice and helpful! The food was to die for. We met the owners son who came over to check and see if we were enjoying our food and brought some appetizers to try. The steaks, filet and ribeye were cooked to perfection and the bacon wrapped sea scallops were huge!! Make sure you don’t leave without trying the homemade cheesecake!!

We were very surprised that this place was a bar setting, no white table cloths as pictured. Would be able to find just as good food without going to Milwaukee!
Would not return, thought food was over priced for location and setting.

The chicken Alfredo was fantastic. The price on the jumbo bacon wrapped shrimp was 8.00 a piece and so was the scallops. When you first walk in its a bar, then they take you back to a little room with a few tables. It was good foo, but because of the prices I would not go back. If it was a fancy place with more choices I would. It was worth trying 1 time. Just make sure you ask the prices before you order since they don't have menus.

Good and fresh food. Unique method used to order. Ridiculously overpriced for both food and drink. Atmosphere of an old corner tavern - fine with me - but priced like a 5 star fine dining establishment.

I waked in and thought where is the $50 per person place? It is basically a small whole in the wall that serves the BEST freaking food in Milwaukee! We had the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp and OMGosh! Then had the cheesesteak with REAL strip steak shaved. Food was awesome as was the service. First place I have given a 20% tip to in a very long time. Definitely be back!

The sports memorabilia surrounding the ENTIRE bar floor to and including the ceiling was remarkable making the conversation fun and energizing. The staff was fun and interesting making for an overall happy night at the bar. The only downside was the exceptionally overpriced bar food. Perhaps a burger and fries would’ve been better priced. I’ve had their Sunday morning omelette and Bloody Mary which are an exceptional value. But the seafood was skimpy, overcooked and overpriced. The haystack onion rings tasted of old oil more than anything else. If you’re looking for a night out drinking and talking sports this is the place. If you want appetizers head anywhere but here.

My husband and I went to 4th Base for dinner one night. They have delicious seafood and steaks, however, there are no menus provided because all of their food is made to order. So be careful!! Our bill ended up being over $200 including tip. The next time we stop by will be for drinks only. Very good service though.

Used Open Table to find a place we had never eaten before. Pleasantly surprised! The unassuming exterior and feel of a corner pub hides a nice selection of steak and seafood which is cooked to order. Definitely a hidden gem.

My family of five went for lunch on a Sunday for my son’s birthday. The creative idea of not having a menu and a customized meal based on your preferences was exciting unfortunately; the food quality did not deliver. My sea bass was inedible - seafood was not fresh, possibly because it was Sunday. Service was fantastic however; ensure you ask market price as everything is ala cart when ordering, for the five of us our bill was close to $500. I am all about paying for a phenomenal meal (even a $500 lunch) however, this was a far cry from phenomenal.

It's a small bar near the VA and stadium that has INCREDIBLE food. You wouldn't know it walking in but you order from the case based on what you see and server recommendations. Not cheap but the food is amazing! We had a great time from the minute we walked in to the moment we left.

Those giving this place low ratings don't understand the value of high quality food and truly gourmet cooking at what's otherwise a dive bar. If you're looking for a place that serves pre-made bar food, like mozzarella sticks and wings, at $5 a pop this isn't your place. If you're looking for a historic bar with tons of atmosphere and fabulous, fresh, well-prepared food, this is your place. We will be back again and again.

I have to agree with some of the other reviews-4th Base is expensive. The food was good but not outstanding. My meal of perch and vegetables was in the area of $30. Charged $6-7.00 per shrimp. Drinks were also expensive. The staff was great! Would I go back? Maybe for a burger.

I moved out of state 17 years ago and hadn't been back to 4th Base since then, and I remember having great dinners there. I came into town for the US Open and was looking for someplace out of the ordinary to take my husband and our out of town guest. 4th Base popped up on a web search and I was so delighted to see it! My husband and our friend were very surprised at the quality of the food for a place that looks like a corner tap. They loved it and so did I. We will certainly be back again--and I won't wait 17 years! Our waitress, Jenny, was outstanding and really made the experience even more special!
