All went wonderful! I definitely recommend the brussel sprouts! Our server was friendly, drinks were yummy and food was great. We enjoyed sitting upstairs in the loft area.

Delicious and a fun place to dine. It was a busy night, but we were seated on the second floor which helped keep the noise level a bit lower. Fried chicken is amazing!

Clever menu - I got the smoked meats every day (lol) and it was delicious but I do not recommend this place if you’re on a diet!! Also it’s a refurbished warehouse I think? Unique and well decorated! This would be a fun place to come with a big group of friends !

Always a stop when we are in Milwaukee. The French Onion Bruschetta was amazing. The Wedge salad is always great. Awesome service! See you next time!

Awesome atmosphere and food was amazing. One of the owners stopped at our table and spoke with us, sharing the history of the building and area. Chicken and waffles are my new fave!

Food was inconsistent with menu. Brussels sprouts were delicious, but there was no creme fraise as stated on menu. 8 piece fried chicken bucket was 2 legs and 6 chicken tenders-very disappointing. Sides were small and luke warm. Service was also inconsistent.

I picked this place because it had the most creative menu for brunch. But while the choices were unusual, the prices were pretty high for what you got. The bratwurst potstickers were terrific, but there were only 4 and cost $8! Same on most of the dishes. The Mexican dish was mostly chips and the Montreal smoked meat only had maybe a couple ounces of meat and lots of potatoes. And most of the beer choices were IPA and stouts with them being out of the only lager. Don't know if I'd go again.

The concern and suggestions for our special diet needs was so excellent. Meeting our time needs for theater attendance was right on target.

Such a cool space, loved the vibe and ambiance. Our server was great, and the cook had made an extra appetizer so she gave it to us for free! The menu was great, varied with solid options. Our cocktails were good, just overall we loved it!

We made the best of our time there, but I wish our waitress was a bit friendlier. It felt like we were an inconvenience and we were not offered or informed on better drink deals. Our waitress closed our tab without asking if we needed or wanted something else beforehand. She seemed like she was somewhere else and not fully there. It wasn't the worst, but certainly not the best experience.

We had a really fun night at merriment. The atmosphere and culture is lively and upbeat. The space is wonderful. We had cocktails and beer and I was very happy with the cocktail menu. We had two appetizers, brussels sprouts and cheese curds which we loved. We tried the fried chicken which was absolutely awesome and the burger got rave reviews. We had the avocado pork belly dish which was awful. The ingredients sound like they’re good together but the mixture didn’t work. Too much dressing. The pork belly was not good while the avocados were few and not cut right.You should re-think that DISH and maybe offer something like that without the meet. I will definitely be back.

We loved it, but did notice employees off to the side (bar area) as it was a bit slow (Possibly) making comments about those in the restaurant as they would appear to look, talk and laugh when looking in the direction of others. Hard to know...but maybe not the most professional? The food was delicious and the atmosphere was fun!

Can't believe this place is not packed on a Saturday morning. Fantastic bloody mary's, huge portions of fantastic breakfast-- the chicken and waffles kills, the chilaquiles rocks! Wish I lived in Milwaukee-- would be there every weekend.

Great place for small plates. We enjoyed our time. We shared the fried chicken, the cheese curds, and the mac n cheese. Two out of three of the dishes were amazing! Service was great and made us feel special as it was our anniversary. I would go back again.

For a burger with all homemade ingredients, it was surprisingly boring! While all components may have been well executed, they did not combine fir a flavorful burger.

The turkey burger was also a huge disappointment. Billed as having garlic aioli, the sauce sure tasted like straight mayo to me. The turkey itself had a very weird rubbery consistency. Will not be back.

great location and ambience with some decent menu. However the food itself was average and not very creative. Flavors were average. The server was very friendly and welcoming although the service took rather a very long time and the place was very quiet at that time.
Overall, may visit again and will try something else on the menu. Nice place to hang out with mates.
