I've received better service at Culver's. The waitress was non-existent. I felt bad for this restaurant because we have received mediocre service in the past and decided to give it a shot one last time. They have definitely not changed. Unbelievably they did not carry king crab even though it's on the menu. They told us it's a problem with quality from their supplier..........hello there are other suppliers! I have read other reviews of this some time ago. I highly doubt we will ever return.
Staff were attentive, but did not hover. The Milwaukee Fish Chowder never disappoints. Our friends who were there for the first time loved the food, the price and the lovely river local. We love introducing new people to what the restaurant has to offer. The rum carrots are awesome, as is the mac and cheese. Broccoli is broccoli, but theirs is bright and very fresh.
The food was good. We were sad the menu on line does not match the available menu.
Good food at a good price. Will go back when the weather is warmer to better enjoy the "open" atmosphere.
This is a hidden gem and we are glad we found it. Great seafood is a very casual and friendly atmosphere. Great location on the Milwaukee River and close to Potawatomi.
Enjoyed Twisted fisherman atmosphere was nice and cozy. Nice mixture of music and food was Great. Waiter was friendly I will be going back.
Food was good and so was the service. Server made great recommendations and even gave us desert for our anniversary. Would go again.
