Mader's German Restaurant
Wiener Schnitzel Sandwich
Served on rye bread with lettuce and tomato
Roast Pork Shank
Number one favorite for over one hundred years. Updated to a wonderfully delicious skinless shank with an apple demi-glaze. Served with sauerkraut and red potatoes
Sautéed pork tenderloin cutlets topped with Black Forest mushroom sauce with mashed potatoes and julienne vegetables. Wine Pairing: Gordon Sauvignon Blanc $8/glass, $28/bottle
The food was excellent. The service was a little slow as are many places these days with the shortage of staff, but the servers were very helpful and pleasant.
Food on the plate came out at different temperatures. Most of the food was lukewarm when it was served to us. The waitress did an okay job at paying attention to our table. I was disappointed that no one mentioned the dinner was for a birthday celebration which I indicated on the reservation.
Great ambiance and food. A must when visiting Milwaukee.
Excellent restaurant overall! Wait staff are in German outfits. The food is excellent and generous. Prices fit the quality and quantity. A fun must see restaurant.
This was my first time at Mader's and I loved everything about it. The food was wonderful and the whole German style decor and ambiance was great.
Disappointed with food mostly -server was not attentive though Clearly overwhelmed by the situation; timing was terrible with delinks, apps, and super expensive
Everything we ordered, the drinks, the food, was top notch-delicious. Great service too. Haley made our evening a special one!
Had dinner & Food value very good. And it was delicious. Service was a bit slow, got better towards end. Went to Bucks game after, the parking valet, very friendly and great place to park for the Fiserv game after..
Server was nice but slow. Took over 20 min to get a drink. Never got a refill of my coke. Food was bland
Very very busy at this restaurant near fiserv forum before a concert, so service was extremely slow
excellent service along with the delicious food from a true german restaurant. Busy but attentive to all details for our dining experience.
Our family has been going to Madar's restaurant for decades, and it was sad to see the service level fall as much as it was for us this past weekend. Everything that could go wrong, went wrong, orders not put in, wrong food delivered, no bread, waiter not stopping by even remotely in timely manner etc. The manager did her best to smooth things over, but overall very disappointing visit this time.
Ambiance was great, food was delicious, but the service was a bit slow.
It is an old time old time classic Very generous portions. Excellent value
Although some of the dishes were Americanized, one of the most authentic German restaurants I’ve been to in the USA. My wife is German and I’ve spent a great deal of time in Germany myself, NSE&W.
Disappointed I couldn’t order Beef Rouladen by itself or order a spätburgunder. But the blaufrankisch wine was great and the liver dumpling súppe was schmekt gut and authentic.
I’d go again. Proßt!
Melody was the abs pooling best server ever.
Excellent recommendations, totally knowledgeable about all aspects of the menu, very polite & patient. Excellent service, prior to, during & after meal.
Look forward to our next visit here.
Wonderful meal. Wiener schnitzel cooked perfectly. Apple strudel was outstanding!
Outstanding food, service and ambience. Haven't been here for a long time, will definitely come back
The atmosphere and service are the stars here. Our server was friendly and attentive throughout the meal and worked hard to make sure we were enjoying our experience. The food is just passable. The rouladen was too tough to chew, the goulash and schnitzel were bland and uninspiring. The pork shank was a better choice, with fork-tender meat and a nice presentation. The apple strudel was excellent.
We are from out of town, Dinner with our nephew. who lives and works in Milwaukee
Good place for brunch. We wished we would have been there for just lunch because brunch was a bit expensive
This was an anniversary dinner of 22 years. Although I know it is not our servers fault (due to understaffing) however our meal ended up being 2 hours and 45 minutes long. Many times throughout the meal we were wondering where our server had gone and if our food was ever going to show up. Again, our server was probably trying his best but with a crowded room it was unacceptable. My parents were also in town and this was their first experience at Mader’s. My Step-Father who is German could not believe how long this meal was. I hope to come back one day! $300 bill for a 2 hour and 45 minute dine time was too much. We had other plans in the city that night that we had to cancel.
Best German we’ve had outside of Germany. Great service!
Great experience every time!
All 5 of us tried something different for our main entrees, and we each really enjoyed them. I had the Beef and Mushroom Strudel, which is something I've never seen or tried before, but I am ready glad I trusted my server's advice in doing so. My son also loved his lamb shank, which too is not found often on German menus. My wife and father in-law loved the variety of the Rhine Sampler and German Sampler, both of which come with pork Wiener Schnitzel, which may be upgraded to veal. The beef goulash in the Rhine Sampler was fork tender and succulent. The beef Sauerbraten in the German Sampler was equally so. We had no room for dessert, as we started our meal sharing a giant warmed and salty pretzel with yummy beer cheese sauce and tangy German mustard to dip. Lastly, reservations are a must, unless you are a party of one or two and are willing to sit at the large Knight's Bar adjacent to the restaurant, serving the same menu items. Free off-street valet parking makes for a hassle free experience as well. Highly recommended!, especially for special occasions, such as my wife's parents' 60th anniversary!
The best German restaurant I have eaten at food and service the best
Restaurant is past it's prime. Food is marginal but atmosphere is authentic.
Lovely evening. Service a bit slow. Our waitress seemed to have a lot of tables. Food very slow coming out. Food very good and generous.
We love Mader’s! We were last here about a month ago and they remembered us. They even remembered my cat’s name! The food was delicious last night as always. It’s so hard to pick a favorite but if I had to pick something, it’s hard to beat the fantastic pretzel bread. We did switch it up this time and get the apple strudel for dessert which was absolutely phenomenal. Mader’s will always be a favorite of mine and ours. Can’t wait to come back!
Very good German Restaurant. The food was very good. We had a sampler platter and chicken schnitzel.
Will our server was outstanding. Did a great job recommending drinks with our meal. Was very attentive. We enjoyed our meals. I had the Sampler and my daughter had the scallops spaetzle. Both were delicious. Also, enjoyed the pretzel with brat as a starter. Reminds me of my grandmother's German cooking. :)
Great atmosphere, service and quality. Had Old Fashioned drink, oxtail soup and Wiener schnitzel. Incredible!!
Best German food we’ve had in a long time. Our waiter James was exceptional. We will be back next time we come to town .
It was our 47th anniversary
Stopped for a quick dinner prior to the Buck's game. Mader's is always a good stop prior to the game. Good food, great location. The only disappointment was, we would have preferred bar seating as the dining room wouldn't serve the corned beef sandwich.
The service and food were excellent. We shared a roladen and it was plenty of food.
Great food and service. Bar experience also great.
Had the jagersnitzel it was great! Came with sparsely and ordered a side of cabbage, all was very good German food!
It was great. Wonderful lunch. Good deal.
