Food was good, beer was tasty. Recommend for an early dinner, HH.
This is a great place to enjoy wonderful drinks and excellent food. From the very talented bar staff to the professional wait staff and kitchen staff, a wonderful experience overall.
The service was spotty at best. We would have ordered an after dinner drink if the waiter would have returned. Very loud, but probably because we were seated in an alcove with one additional table seating 8. The sandwich i ordered was very salty. Cocktails were good.
Awesome food and drink selection! Love the ambiance and look of the establishment also!
Loved it! Great food, ambiance and service. I highly recommend it!
Our waiter was a bit overwhelmed by the number of people he was serving
Ambiance was fantastic and the decor.The servers were very friendly and knew the menu well.The noise level was a bit high which I guess the restaurant cannot control.The drinks menu had some great varieties and the cocktails were phenomenal.The cutlery/plates were very ordinary looking.The food was just standard.There did not seem anything creative on the menu although the ingredients did look well chosen.Overall not the greatest food experience although will go for ambiance,cocktails and starters.
Went for my birthday. Great beers, service and specials
Great atmosphere, great service, and great food! We had never been to Milwaukee and were visiting for a concert. Great place to eat before the show. Highly recommend!
My wife and I enjoy Rumpus Room often, since we have season tickets to the theater across the street. Food is always spectacular! This time was no exception...first time having the braised pork shoulder, and it was great. Main reason for writing a review, however, was the service. Our waiter Nick was OUTSTANDING! They can be really busy on theater show nights, and in the past have gotten a little backed up. Nick had a full section, but he was completely on top of everything! Great attitude, very responsive. Overall experience was even better than usual!
Very good as always!
Never had a bad meal here. I've come here 4 times a year for the last 5 years (special dates) and it's always a home run food wise. Never have to risk having a disappointing meal here, which is why I return. The atmosphere is excellent as well.
This meal was disappointing at almost every level.
This was our first time eating at the Rumpus Room, however we have eaten at and enjoy other Bartolottas restaurants. The service and overall ambiance of this restaurant were great, however the food was mediocre at best. I had the scallops which was decently tasty. They were cooked just right and were served with carrots and a fennel paste. My husband and I always share our meals and he ordered the fish fry, which in both of our opinions, was gross. There were three large pieces of breaded fish, however the breading on the fish was overly thick and lacked flavor. I generally don’t peel the breading off of fried fish, but we both peeled at least half of the breading off. Also, the tartar sauce was very odd...I ended up eating half a piece of fish and a couple french fries and called it quits. We would not order the Friday fish fry here again. We will stick with the tried and true Lakefront Brewery or County Clare for that! Anyways, not great, we won’t be back, though the restaurant may be ok for a business lunch of something of the sort if you work downtown.
Fish fry was one of the worst I’ve had in MKE in 35 years, and significantly worse than the FFs we’ve been having at RR since it opened. Fish over-battered & under-seasoned, potato pancakes thick, over-battered & under-seasoned. They’ve been too thin on every other visit, now, they’re WAY too thick & taste like glue. Coleslaw good. In MKE, we commonly serve fish fry w slice of good rye bread. Beer vessels keep getting smaller: suggest you buy some pint glasses. RR seems headed in a very bad direction.
All was good
The food was incredible and the staff was very polite and enthusiastic! Great place to eat.
The ambiance is great... Hip, chic, casual. Good cocktails, excellent food, and fantastic service.
we had a nice time. the food was good and the environment was conducive to fun conversation. the service was slightly obtrusive -- we were interrupted a lot to ask whether things were OK.
Everything was great! Will be back.
We've been to The Rumpus Room a few times. We enjoy the atmoshere and the food is very reasonable. We live out of town so travel to come here.
excellent service good food we enjoyed our meal we will come back
We visited Rumpus room before a performance.
Took advantage of the happy hour and had a wonderful time.
Staff was friendly and efficient.
We will be back.
We like to dine out on the occasions when our symphony night comes around. We discovered Rumpus Room is just across the street. Make our reservations and we are on our way. The service is great, the drinks come fairly quick & the food is delicious. Make your own charcuterie
is cool, every time we come in we are interested in trying something new! Everyone should try Rumpus Room at least once!
Great steaks. The duck Mac and cheese was great as well. The deviled eggs are a must.
Relaxing and food very good
Great schnitzel and drinks! They had difficulty getting tables together for our reservation, had to wait 15-20 minutes with our group of 7 at the bar when we had arrived in time. After that, it was smooth sailing!
Rumpus room is one of my favorite restaurants and once again it did not disappoint. The pork schnitzel is incredible...but this time I got the sea scallops that were fabulous as well. Our waiter Kevin was fantastic and he went above and beyond. Love this place!
What a complete disappointment! Service was abysmal, one waiter for 10 tables,only got better when the place emptied. Food was nothing to write home about. Got the impression this place has not figured out what it wants to be when it grows up! Noise was ungodly especially there was a high pitch squeal that bothered many.
We were in and out before a show. They were able to easily accommodate our large group of 9 with reservations. Great service. Waiter was very friendly!!
Our server was great. She was very personable and was able to describe and recommend wines and menu selections.
Overpriced average food. Wait staff was great. Cool bar
Fantastic food ... service was incredible. Everything we ate was delicious!!
We eat at Rumpus Room often, and the food has always been excellent. This time I tried the lamb stew, which was thin, soupy, and had less than an ounce of lamb in it -- not a stew! When the server asked about the stew, I said it was mediocre. He responded, "Then I'm taking off the bill. We want you to like what you eat here." And he did. Now that is good customer service!
Food was average but definitely not worth the price. Cod had heavy dull batter on it that was not good. Blackened chicken sandwich was ok.
Great, fun spot. Can get loud. Needs a more varied beer selection. Of the 24 beers on tap, more than half were IPA beers! Very few pilsners and lagers.
This was the most amazing food I have ever had in my life. My boyfriend and I want to come here from Chicago just for this restaurant. The scotch egg I still have dreams about! Definitely a must try if you are visiting Milwaukee.
Just wanted to compliment Nicholas, our server. Her was very knowledgeable and attentive.
I enjoyed the cheese platter and the hamburger that I had along with a glass of Pinot.
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The mussels and pork schnitzel were excellent.
