Our server was excellent! Food was reasonably priced. Perfect view of the giant screen to watch the pre-game for the Bucks. Our server asked if we were going to the game and the timing, which was very thoughtful. Pulled pork and fries--excellent and generous portion. Mecca burger and tots!! yum!!

Food was great as always. Service... very much less so. It was Tuesday so the special was 3 tacos for $10 but the server didn’t even know what kind of tacos were being sold. For that reason I ordered a burger around 5:30. Happy hour ended at 6, the server dropped drinks and food then was never to be found. We had to stop him after 6 so we could get our check. We got it and the happy hour discounts weren’t applied. We were going to say something but once again he was a ghost. So we flagged down a different server to close us out without making a fuss about the discounts cause we were sick of waiting around.

Everything was above expectations except for the food, which was well below what we expected. Drinks were outstanding along with our table facing the big screen.

Well normally it is very good. This last time, it was not. I feel like our food sat in the window for a bit too long and the wait staff is overwhelmed in the bar area, because it is just the bartender covering the bar and tables so the service was lacking. There also seemed to be a lack of communication with management and the staff about menu changes.

The Mecca had a great fun atmosphere. The food was good and the daily deals. The service was very slow it took a long time to get our drinks on a Thursday for the buy one, get one. Our waiter was never around and we had other servers getting us our new drinks. Also the server had no clue how to charge the drinks so we had to fix our bill two times for being over charged.

Excellent food and ambiance before a Bucks game. Pretty loud in there. Had the pulled pork and tots this time and it was excellent! Watch out for the 1st level table area. There is a step that is not painted and is a hazard.

This was my first time going to the Mecca, and I was very impressed. The food was excellent. On top of that, our waitress named Elle, did a great job. She checked in on us about every 30-40 minutes and wanted to know if we ever needed something. I will be going back again to the Mecca for more sports experiences with groups of friends.

Only pluses are the TV’s & the atmosphere. If you’re coming for just drinks & watch some games with friends then it is perfect for that bc the TV main is massive & many around.

Food selection is small. The big negative is that everything on their website is inaccurate. The March Madness food & drink specials weren’t going on despite it being the first day of the NCAA Tourney. Then they don’t have free parking, like the site says. Part of reason I drove out was bc I didn’t want to pay $10 for parking bc the site says free parking.

Again, cool atmosphere for a game but food is average at best, beer selection is average for Milwaukee.

Server was awful. Glad that I intended on being here for 2hrs but server came over maybe once every 45min & only once refilled our waters. The place is maybe 40% capacity too.

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 :)
