Rumpus Room Ratings and Reviews
2nd visit. Last time we had a group of 6 so had a nice booth away from other tables. This time it was just my husband and me. We were seated at a table that was very close to two other tables. Felt uncomfortably close, almost as If we were joining them for dinner. The service, food and drinks were great. Just didn’t feel like we could converse without others hearing as well as us listening to the conversations of the people next to us.
Took my boyfriend here for his bday. Service was amazing. Our server was so friendly and super understanding of my inconvenient food allergies. Food was amazing. Local beer selection was superb. 10/10 would dine again especially if that specific server is working. Such a good experience.
We had a large group of 10, including two kids. We were celebrating Christmas and a birthday. We arrived before our reservations and they seated us sooner. We ordered great drinks and had the server make up a few platters of cheeses and meats that were. Excellent. The meals were great and they kid have a kids menu available. They had complementary dessert for my mom who was celebrating her birthday. We had great service throughout and it was a great night out. I love Rumpus Room and the great atmosphere, food, drinks, and service.
Pleasant enviroment. Service was prompt. Menu selection quite ample and therefore will make most hapy. Certainly a place among the very best in the city. The main concern is parking which has nothing to do with the restaurnt but makes one hesitant to put friends through the trouble when the weather is in a Wisconsin mode.
Overall, great ambiance. We were seated on time despite running a little late due to traffic. The beer menu is excellent. The food was delicious. The only complaint is the salad and main course came out almost together. Possibly our fault because we mentioned that we were going to the theater and had a time deadline. Will go again.
We decided to try to the Rumpus Room for my daughters college graduation dinner. We enjoyed the ambience and had a wonderful server. Dinner was nicely paced. We enjoyed our cocktails, especially the Wisconsin Old Fashion, as well as the deviled eggs as an appetizer. Dinners were flavorful and not overpriced. We would come again!
We get together as a family for A Christmas Carol at the Pabst Theater every year and the Rumpus Room is a favorite gathering spot. Even though it was an extremely busy night at Rumpus Room, we were seated promptly and were asked right away by our server, Cassandra if we had any time constraints. We told her our target time to depart. We had appetizers, wine, amazing entrees and dessert; all perfectly timed . Then, we were happily on our way to the show. Thanks, Cassandra! (You too, Joe!!!)
It came in December, the best dining experience of 2017! We were visiting Milwaukee and needed a spot for dinner before a concert. So glad it was Rumpus Room! The cocktails were great, every cheese related appetizer was fantastic, and the scallops n grits special was one of the best meals in my life. That sear on the scallops would make Gordon Ramsey proud. Service was fast and the place felt great! Will be back next time I'm in Milwaukee!
We were seated promptly when we arrived for our reservation. Our waitress was terrific at making sure we have our food and dessert in a timely fashion to make sure we arrived at the MSO with time to spare. We both had salmon with small potatoes...cooked perfectly in a light tomato sauce. The vegetable was a little sparse but good.
Overall great experience. Good food, atmosphere and service was excellent. Decent value for the food. Little overpriced on drinks as usual for downtown Milwaukee. Great location if your going to a show across street at Uliene Hall. Make sure to make a reservation and park in deck behind Rumpus Room and have them validate inside.
