Loved the atmosphere. The space was completely updated and charming. Comfortable seating and the fireplace added to the experience. We'll be back.

Food was great. It was nice to get out and glad to see they were busy. The waitress did a nice job but was slow on follow up service. Finished our first round of drinks and it took her awhile to bet back to order the 2nd round. No deal breakers.

Made reservations for the “heated patio” as it was listed as a location with heated patios that were open in cooler temps. The patio was closed and snow covered and ended up being forced to sit indoors against my wishes. I would not have chosen this location if I would have known the patio was closed. This needs to be communicated to customers so they don’t make “heated patio” reservations..

Also the salad immediately made me sick. Had to leave dinner early becuase of it.

Menu lists “gourmet” items. The hot dog we were provided was nothing more than a $3 street hot dog, but cost $10. Nice idea, great patio, the food missed the mark

Given the Covid situation of eating in a pavilion and out of a takeout container, we thought this was one of our best meals recently. We had the baby back ribs which were excellent and the chicken shwarma salad which is very good. He setting is nice with recorded music and service attentive. Will definitely go back.

Milwaukee Road has always been a favorite of mine, but since they moved the restaurant to the big patio, this has been one of my go-to's during COVID. Tables are nice and spaced out, the staff is great and it's so nice being able to be outside but covered. Highly recommend the vegan burger here too! Will definitely be back!

Really great food considering all things were adjusted for Covid... I know that they are super limited because of the pandemic but some sort of apps on the menu would have been amazing. The portions weren’t huge and we would have loved some sides (even some chips and salsa would have made the biggest difference). Very pleased though and think they’re doing a great job despite the challenges!

What a wonderful use of a large covered space. The smell of BBQing outside was pleasant; validated parking is helpful; the space is very relaxing and quiet. Great choice!

Unfortunately, there was insufficient staff.

The summer salad was very good, but the cheeseburgers were both undercooked.

Will try again; perhaps on a weeknight.
