    New menu without old favorites. The prime rib sandwich meat was cold and we asked for a burger without cheese. We got a burger with cheese. There was a $3 service fee and the prices are up.

    Last time I was there was thirty years ago with fond memories. This time was even better. Had dinner with another couple who had never been there. It was fun to watch their reaction. Food was perfect. Agent Venus (our server) was efficient as well as fun. The cleanliness and overall ambiance was A+. We will be back.

    We reserved a table for 5 we were put in a booth and there were some tables available. Would have been nice to have a little more elbow room. The food was good, but the beef sandwich was not hot, just warm. Super fun place though and everyone was friendly. Hard part is it is interactive and you have to walk around and they were busy so there were many times the wait staff had to excuse their way through. The photo booth didn't send the pictures like it said it would, but it was a good time and lots of good memories made.

    There were multiple problems. They weren't terribly busy. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks after we ordered them, the waitress said they were having issues with the bar being backed up. She didn't check on us at all during that time. One of the sides that was supposed to come wirh our meal came out long before our meals. We were told there were problems in the kitchen as well. They also couldn't take multiple cards for our bill. This was the second bad experience we've had at Safe House. We don't plan to go back.

    Went because it was supposed to have a fun ambience, which was mostly true. However, it was too kid friendly and the noise level was unpleasant. Service was fair, food was not good overall. Prime rib dip and chili were both awful. Salad with chicken the same. Might go back for a beer at tge bar and sides of fries and cheese curds. The pints were overpriced though, at $8. Not a great experience.

    Haven’t been to the Safe House in years but decided to take my kids 6 and 8 years old. Overall they loved the experience with secret doors, scavenger hunt, and a magician who went above and beyond to entertain them. My son asked when we could come back again. Lots of fun! In regards to the food it was ok. The portions felt small for the cost, but food isn’t the number 1 reason for going. The biggest disappointment this time around was that the kids were suppose to get light up drink cups and my wife ordered a special drink (Sterling Archer) for the main reason to get the included souvenir glass. When we got our drinks they were all in normal glasses. We waited to bring up but after we did, the server said they were out due to supply chain issues. She ended up taking some cost off the bill but we were disappointed she or the menu didn’t state this before ordering. It made me wonder if I didn’t bring up at the end if we would have been charged full price.

    We were passed through the password experience, because the door man was on a personal call. The kids had practiced all week saying the password. We were sat at a very tiny table for 4 people but luckily the waitress let us move to a larger table which was available and in the same areas. My son was excited to order the pretzel and it was not available. My husband and I were missing the horseradish from our sandwiches. The food was lukewarm. The waitress was kind but seemed very busy so we didn’t want to both her with complaints after we had already asked to move tables. It just wasn’t the same experience we had last year and we left with two disappointed kids.

    Concept is neat, but the first table they put us was cool but only for the extremely thin lol when I said it was uncomfortable and asked for a new seat they acted like it was rude of me to want a new table then once sat our waitress was less then excited to be working so it seemed … food came out and was cold we asked for it to be warmed came out again slightly warmer. While it was not hot it was good so if it had been hot probably would have been delicious… it was the chili Mac.

    We were very disappointed in our experience. We got there And when we said we didn’t know the password,the lady just open the door and let everyone in. We didn’t have to do the funny stuff or figure out a dance because we didn’t know the password. we brought our kids to enjoy the experience and that’s a fun part they missed out on. Our service was horrible we asked for condiments that never came. we asked for napkins and five minutes later our waiter finally brought two napkins. We had 4 people at our table. Food was very bland and not good. I’ve been here previously and was very excited to take my whole family. It was a huge disappointment. We won’t be back anytime soon.

    I think for us the appetizers were the best part of the meal and then it dropped off. Several of us got french fries that came out cold, one person got the fish tacos which came out with cold tortillas and it was just a little bit disappointing. We knew we were coming for more of the atmosphere than we were the food but that was disappointing. The cheese curds and the pretzel appetizer were amazing though. We also loved the service and the people we interacted with

    Alot has changed since i went in the 90. The spies demise used to be bigger and come with a keepsake cup(that you didnt have to ask for- for hail to the chief) so glad the bar tender remembers how it was guess nxt time ill try chicago and see if they are any better we made the 2 hr drive based on what was not what is now Got his name wrong for hail but we went with it.

    This was such a unique, entertaining, and interactive eating experience. My staff was blown away by all of the decor, service, and even the names of the menu items. I'm so glad I was able to make reservations ahead of time since I heard from multiple groups that they were not able to get in. I would go to Safe House again in a heartbeat, especially if there were other locations around the country.

    We had reservations for 6pm. Got there 10 to 6 as was told we had to wait until 6. That ok we understood, however we saw 3 more parties come in for 6PM and they were seated before us. Then they were going to put us at a bar table, and when we said we don’t want a high top table (we both are mid 50s), they protested saying we assign seats ahead of time. Thankfully logic won out when we told them that seat would not work for our age. There I would guess are many restaurants in the Milwaukee area, for the money I will try the others before I go back.

    Went back to the SafeHouse for the first time in ages. The last time I was there (many years ago), the burger was THE BEST I had ever had! Unfortunately, the food has declined significantly ~ $15 "nothing special" hamburgers with little flavor on dry buns . Expensive drinks with extra ice to reduce the alcohol and mixer content and make the glass look full. Very disappointing... The kitschy 1960's spy décor hasn't changed one bit, but that doesn't justify the $3 additional "entertainment fee" on the bill. Our server, Colleen, was the one saving grace of the experience ~ she was cheerful, enthusiastic, "in character" and checked in on us timely throughout the meal. If it wasn't for her, this would have been a one star review!

    We were terribly disappointed with our trip. Our first experience at safe house was amazing, this was a few years ago. We brought our children with us this time to celebrate our anniversary and they were so excited to be little spies! It started off with being welcomed in as spies by an employee having a break and eating. Totally understanding of being short handed if that was the case, but listening to a mouth full while doing the mission was gross. Then when we entered in we requested a booth because we had two little guys, said it was not possible as they would be too busy and put us at a wobbly table right by the main entrance. There were only two other people in the restaurant eating and it was not busy. The entire length of our stay only 3 more small groups came in. Our server appeared less then interested to be there, and after they brought our food never returned back until it was time for the check. We ordered the drink that was pricey to initially order but then could refill at a discounted rate but they never came back until we were ready to leave. We were also charged a fee for entertainment on the check - what a joke! The food was just as delicious as we remembered though. Just really disappointed by the service.

    The food was incredible and the atmosphere is great. Our server flat out told us she forgot about us. Never asked if we wanted a second drink. Never gave us silverware. Never refilled waters. AND after two bites of food, asked if we wanted our check. Our reservation was at 7:00! I’ve never felt more rushed to leave a spot. Very disappointing as we were really looking forward to checking the place out. I just say the food was terrific and the drinks were perfect, just a real sour experience service wise.

    What a fun experience! We did not know the password so we had to work to get in. It was fun to watch everyone else work for it too. It was fun to complete spy missions. So much cool stuff to look at while you are completing you missions. The selfie station was a blast. We were seated in the booth that has the stairs leading up to it. There was a fun little surprise in the end. The food was good. We had the pretzel which a little more dense then I would prefer. The cheese sauce was great though. Tacos, BLT, and hot dogs were great. I highly recommend this place for families or even a date.

    Awesome experience! Entering in thru the International Imports door (located in an alley) was so much fun. Great interaction with the “Captain” in order to gain entry. Lots of fun if you don’t know the password. I grew up with Get Smart and James Bond. Going thru the secret passage and hidden doorways was a childhood dream watching all the episodes of Get Smart. Wait staff were in character the entire evening. Agents in charge Venus and Serena were very talented. Menu was very exciting with movie and Cold War spy references. While waiting for the food, certainly participate in the 10 Missions. Done are easy, some are very challenging. Don’t forget to go back for your food! The food was disappointing compared with the menu descriptions. The Fish and chips were soggy and freshly unfrozen. The chicken dish was very blackened. However, must see venue, might have been one time thing with our food. Lots of fun with the missions. The big wall puzzle wasn’t working, would have been cool to utilize. Still, highly recommended for a creative, unique dining experience. Good luck agents!

    It was fun for my daughter's birthday, but the menu items we ordered were unavailable (fish fry), so we got something else and the chicken tenders were as black as this phone I'm typing on and they were cold and as hard as rocks-I'm not exaggerating. They were taken off the bill. My husband and I got our food first. We ate it (I tried). Then one daughter got her food and she ate it. Then, the three of us sat while the last two girls got and ate their food. My daughter got chocolate milk and it was basically white. They did nothing for my daughter's birthday, in terms of cake or singing (we were never offered dessert, so maybe they don't serve it?), so we left there hungry and out of almost $100, still having to take them to get dessert. They do charge extra fees that they don't tell you about upfront (Entertainment fees and other misc fees...), so budget for that. My l kids said they enjoyed the scavenger hunt. Like I said, it was fun for my 9-year-old, but I wouldn't go again. Oh! The waitress (Agent Venus) was great and she had a wonderful attitude.
