Stopped in for brunch and it was amazing! You seriously need to try the hash brown bomb. My new favorite. All the food ordered was presented beautifully and the flavors on all the dishes outside. The bloody Mary’s are perfectly balanced with an appropriate amount of garnish. If you haven’t stopped in yet your tastebuds are missing out!

Had a very nice meal at Mason Street Grill. It is a very nice menu and you can decide if you want fancy or casual. Steak, seafood, pasta, burgers. Food was very tasty. Our desserts were incredible! If I am ever back in Milwaukee, I will come back.

About the restaurant
We're obsessed with the craft of smoked meat. Our certified humanely-raised meats are dry rubbed, slow smoked, and sauced by you. In some cases, we began smoking your meat yesterday to ensure you get the perfect quality barbecue. We smoke our meats in small batches, all-day, every-day. In some cases, we sell out when items are in high demand, but sit back, savor a bourbon or two, and try something new. We're certain that you'll enjoy our variety!

Host was unfriendly, insisted we only had a reservation for 5 when we clearly had one for 6. I even tried to show him my email from Open Table but he wanted nothing to do with looking at it. Our server on the other hand was extremely polite, knowledgeable and friendly. As always the food was fantastic.
