We had great seats to watch the Bucks game! Food was pretty good as well. We had the Chicken Tender basket which had nicely seasoned french fries and Buffalo Chicken Mac n Cheese. Service was very slow. Waiter would check booth next to us and then turn his back as to not make eye contact as he passed over checking on our table. Also, the QR code to pay contactlessly for the bill did not work on any of our phones so we had to pay our large bill in all cash. Not very convenient.

Our table was a little awkwardly set up in that you could only sit on one side, which made conversation tough, but we loved watching the game together! Great food and drinks are pretty reasonably priced.

We went in for dinner and to stream a high school sporting event on one of their TVs. They were very accommodating and helpful making that happen.

Menu is limited, we all had wings which were very good and the homemade chips were excellent.

I would say it’s a bit pricey for bar food but we paid no extra for the ability to stream so it was worth it.

Hoping for a return to “normalcy” as its a big place with awesome TVs. It was a shame that we were 3 of maybe 10 people in the place.

The only disappointment I had was our server was not very punctual. After we sat down, it took several minutes before we were checked on for something to drink and it wasn't even or server.

Then when our server did come over, wife put in an order for an appetizer and walked away before I could put in my order.

Then it was sporadic until she'd check back on us to where we had other servers check on us.

Made a reservation for The Mecca but got put at a table in the beer garden that was completely separate from Mecca with no table service. Had to order drinks at another bar, then ordered food from another venue that never arrived. Not a great night!

Visited Milwaukee from Chicago and was staying at airbnb walking distance from Mecca. We reserved seats 2-weeks in advance (came with group of 12) and upon arrival they showed us to our table asap. Place wasn't packed but we decided to sit outside. Our hostess was great up until it was time to split the bill she wouldn't split it individually. Other than that food quality wasn't up to par I got the Mecca burger and it was nothing special. The inside environment was incredible, NBA Playoffs were on and the Mecca was the place to be! But overall was satisfied and faded :)

I was super bummed bc Mecca doesn't offer a vegan brat anymore. That was my favorite thing to get. I ended up with a garden salad (good) and tater tots. The tater tots were so good!!
I sat outside which was really nice. I could see the Buck's game bc they have a ton of tv's everywhere.
My server was great! Very attentive, but not pushy.
I'll def go back.

Location and service were good. The food however is expensive, for Milwaukee, and the portions are small. I wouldn’t come back unless I wanted to watch a game or see a UFC fight on the big screens.

We dined at the MECCA on their second day of re-opening, I believe. There were not many other diners there, but things moved along well. We were very comfortable with the level of protections in place during Covid and were very happy with our experience.

While we overall enjoyed our experience, it was just...ok. We were able to easily reserve a table the day before, which came in handy since it was so busy before a concert. We ordered wings (buffalo and mecca style) and the buffalo wings tasted too buttery, but the mecca style was good, as well as the fries. Being from the midwest, I love a good ranch dressing and unfortunately the ranch was not good at all. With it being so busy, our service was a little slow, but our server was very nice and friendly. We plan on coming back again to try different menu items. My partner and I both agree we'd give our experience a 7/10.

I had the opportunity to visit the MECCA this weekend on 2 occasions. Each time the service was very friendly and attentive. The drinks were well made. The food was overall good, but there was inconsistency in the food quality. This was particularly noticeable during my first visit when I tried the fish fry. The french fries were unique and tasted great, but the pieces of fish were bland, greasy, and reminiscent of a generic frozen fish. The next day I had the salmon sandwich which was dry and was on a bun similar to a prepackaged store-bought hamburger bun. I had hoped for a little more upscale food. I hope they will reevaluate the quality of the food products on their menu because I think it is at a great venue with a good vibe.

We asked for regular seating but got a high top table. It was a bit cramped. Lizzie our server was amazing and food was out fast even though there we a ton of people there! A bit over priced for pub food but the chicken wing we really good. The ambiance is neat too. Huge TVs to watch any game!

If you are going to a game this is a great spot. Our server, Mara was excellent. She was friendly, accommodating and fun. The food is average. I would not go to the Mecca if there wasn’t a game. Pretzel bread not good. Nachos were average. Burgers were average. We enjoyed our time and the atmosphere before the game.
