Grilled Cheese seemed overcooked, dry and not enough cheese. My Husband and I both had it so we were pretty disappointed. Paid extra for tomato and bacon - but we could barely find any. Fries were really good. Caeser Salad was very good.

Chocolate cookie dessert was outstanding.

Atmosphere was fun.

Our server was not attentive. Had to track her down for napkins. They were out of food offered in the limited menu. Not sure I would go back.

Food was nothing special for waiting 45 minutes for it. Drinks took forever to get. When food finally came no silverware or water with food. The reservation system was good though we got right in with a reservation.

Some things about the Mecca were great... our server Carrie was friendly and professional, and we enjoyed the food and drinks we ordered. Also, we were there on Ryder Cup Sunday, so the atmosphere was great. Unfortunately, there was one major issue... when we arrived for our reservation, we were shown to a table tucked in the corner without a good view of the big screens. After I explained to the hostess that I had called ahead of time and was assured we had a good table right in front, she said to me and I quote... "you're a liar because you booked online". My jaw almost hit the floor. Although they did their best to turn things around, this interaction left a pretty bad taste in my mouth.

The other weird thing was, this was a NFL and Ryder Cup Sunday. It should've been one of their busiest days. But for some reason they had almost their whole upper tier closed. You do that, of course good tables are going to be in short supply! I get that ramping up staffing levels post-pandemic has been a challenge, but offering a lesser service while still charging full price is not how to deal with it. If I ever find myself back in Milwaukee, I will be giving The Mecca a miss. I could never go back to, or recommend to others, a place that has employees who think its ok to treat their customers this way.

Great place, good ambiance. Only reason didn’t give five stars is because when I booked the reservation I selected a “high top” as I wanted to be in the bar area. We were not seated at a high top nor in the bar area. 😩

The food took about an hour to get. When it came 4 out 5 had cold food. Since we were going to a concert no time to send back out food. Could tell they were short staff however the waiters need to make themselves available

Everything was great!! The Mecca is a good spot to watch games at. The only down fall there aren’t any specials besides bloody Mary’s it’s not a bargain sports bar. Like 6 wings for $15 that’s crazy to me. I know you are down town but you would think on Sundays where football is all day they would have better food and drink specials

We went on a quiet night to meet up with some friends. We had a reservation and were seated right away. It wasn’t busy but we sat for 15 minutes waiting for a server. They were all around and helping every table near us but we had to go back to host to get someone to actually talk to us. After we did, it took forever to get the drinks we ordered. We ordered a second round and got it about 20 min after ordered as we watched bartender just stand there. The food came out cold. It was just not a positive experience at all. With lots of options in area, we’ll go with a different one.

Fun atmosphere but not the best place for diehard sports fanatics. Nice viewing screen but you can’t hear the game, so you don’t know what the ref calls are.

I was not impressed with the service or the food. Our server was not friendly and only came over when she seen us looking at her. My nachos was cold and just dry. I have never experienced nachos like this ever. When I asked the server about them she told me they didn’t have any cheese or salsa but brought me a verde salsa. I was very disappointed. My bill was $72 and I still tipped her $10

My nachos had to be remade due to the cheese being burnt onto the chips so much that you couldn’t even pick up a chip it sticking to the paper they were on..and breaking into pieces...The sour cream was separated (like it was heated up)and inedible. I was brought a 2nd order of bar nachos which were just as bad. I could only pick off of the top. The cheese was hard and burnt onto the chips. I couldn’t even pick up a chip without it breaking into pieces..The nachos were EXTREMELY DRY. The cheese made everything stick to everything...( the paper..the other chips). When I would try to pick up a chip the paper would come up with the chip...(ummmm..no I don’t like paper with a side of nachos) We were a party of 2, however my guest got a straw and I didn’t. I guess I needed to be specific to get 2 straws..My guest got his drink and I didn’t until I asked again. I understand the establishment was busy and loud, but if there are 2 people at the table they should be eating and drinking at the same time. My guest was brought a burger and fries without any condiments despite asking when they brought the burger..they never came back with the condiments..The burger had no ketchup or mayo or anything on it. Just a dry burger and dry nachos. We will NOT be returning.

Great experience watching Bucks game. Had probably the best seat in the house. Server was attentive the entire game and never disappeared. Burger, cheese curds were delicious. Highly recommend.
