I enjoyed Don’s but I didn’t enjoy my meal, the fish dinner. The only part of the dinner that was tasty was the rye bread. The fish and the potato pancakes were disgusting. My friend enjoyed his burger, our server was attentive and friendly, and I’d return to Don’s but I’d probably only order a burger.

Really cool place to take your children. Pretty neat store front and once you are taken into the dinning area there is a lot of cool stuff to look at. Milkshakes are great! Music is good. Burgers are average but then again all burgers are average. Highly recommend taking the family at least once as my family really had a good time!!

fun idea, speakeasy vibe with a great music track of remixed hits of the 70s 80s and 90s. Server was very knowledgeable and engaged in fun interactions. Food was pub-quality good without being extraordinary. Chicken bacon wrap was best of the night. wings appeared to lack flavor other than the sauce. grilled cheese with giardinara relish was tasty but heavy reliance on American cheese in many dishes is a negative and uncreative, so we subbed for cheddar on the samdwich. excellent bourbon old fashioned.

This was a fun spot to try. The food was pretty good, your typical “retro diner” type menu. Our waitress was awesome. We had fun with the crockpot drink.

Great family gathering, really a cute place. Fish fry was a great choice. Great onion rings! Don’t miss the chocolate cake or a shake either. We had the shake with sea salt and caramel. Will definitely return soon

We went to Don's for Saturday brunch as our first post-vaccination dining experience. Red string lights everywhere. Covers of 70s and 80s music playing. Each booth has a different movie theme. Mimosa cocktail flight was a good value. Fruity Pebble pancakes are awesome. Wife said her breakfast sandwich was great. Service was good and prompt. They do have a 18% surcharge going on due to the pandemic, but we still tipped on top of that. My only complaint is that the red string lights make everything look weird (food and drink). We wanted to take a picture to commemorate being there and that also looks terrible (#FWP). Anyway, it was our first time there, and we would definitely recommend it. We plan to go back and try a boozy milkshake!

Love the themed restaurant and the laid back atmosphere. You will not leave unsatisfied or with an empty stomach after having a burger, side and shake for dessert...and also a drink before your meal arrives. I would come back to dine inside or for takeout because the cheeseburger was delicious!

Ambience and drinks were great. I’m not one to add salt to food but we had to with our entrees. Flavor was great with a little dash of salt.

It is a fun atmosphere for sure - the food was just okay. I would say this is a place for delicious cocktails, crazy milkshakes and maybe some tots. That’s enough reason for me to return with some friends for cool libations

80's music should be original and not techno. Drink prices were a bit steep for what you get. Ambience was super retro and super cool! Seeing so many things from the 80's brought us back to our younger years.

We went to celebrate a friends birthday. We had an awesome time. The music was loud but not too loud, my only comment was the red light took away from the appearance of the food. I know the food looked and certainly tasted great but my fruity pebble pancakes looked boring under the red light. Once I snapped a pic with flash tho they came to life. Super minor comment on an overall spectacular visit! Cannot wait for our next visit!

Amazing! I’ve lived in Milwaukee for years and even in that neighborhood for two and never knew Don’s existed!
Amazing atmosphere, great food, killer cocktails! Don’s had it all. The television and movie theme was SO AWESOME. Plus the speakeasy entrance will keep this place a hidden gem for a long time!

Fun, unique, and nostalgic atmosphere, we loved it. 2 boozy shakes, one was great and one was only okay but presentation was outstanding. Salami sandwich was great, burger with cream cheese was only so so. Themed booths are a blast, we had the Star Wars booth. Recommend, especially if you have out of town friends to show around.

Don’s would be a fun date spot! My teen was super impressed.

The music was the only bummer. It was loud and Energetic techno remix of dance club music. Would have dug more mellow 80s
