    LOVED IT! We went to the Safe House after our daughters college graduation. It had been at least 10 years since we'd been there. And it was just as much fun with our young adults as it was when they were preteens. Actually -- it was better: there is something to be said for ordering a fish bowl (rum drink) for the table! Food was excellent, too. Our server could have been more attentive -- but since they add an automatic 20% gratuity on groups of 6+, she knew what she'd be getting.

    First the good, the ambience was nice with the spy theme from the beginning & with our server. The food was served hot and quick. Food quality was okay, cheese curds were good but carne asada described in taco salad seemed to be ground beef so that was a bit disappointing. It was really quiet for a Friday night (around 7 pm) which was a bit surprising as I expected more people. Overall fun time.

    Nacho meat was disgusting. Lettuce in the buffalo chicken wrap was wilted. Chips side for the chicken sandwich were small and broken. Almost like the bottom of the bag.

    The interior and theme was super fun. I enjoyed the magician most. Out table was cute. Waitress was nice. Unfortunately the food was just not good. We ordered cheseballs, fish tacos and pulled pork Mac and cheese. Everything was cold, greasy and bland. Even the French fries were terrible. 0/10 for the food.

    Great speakeasy to meet up with friends and have a good time. Staff was all in and amplified the experience. The Bartender, Garrett, doubles as a magician and his performance was great!

    This was such a fun restaurant for a change and to do something different when we come to visit our kids in college. Excellent ambiance, good food, and the waitress "Agent Diamond" was fantastic! Worth the stop for sure!

    Beware! You will be charged a $3 “Exhibit” Fee on each bill!! What a shame! I had out of town guests who wanted to pay for their own dinner and we were all charge this ridiculous fee! Not to mention most of these fun interactive items also had extra charges! As for the food it was basic, nothing special but it was good but honestly not worth $18 for a burger! I was over charged for C4 cheese curds! I ordered a single order but was charged for a full order! As much as I love WI cheese curds this was not worth the price and were just warm not hot, like they just were sitting in a warmer. Service was just ok, had to ask for basic condiments and for glasses of water. Too bad, this place has so much potential but sadly it seems it’s al about the money!

    We were in Milwaukee for an event and decided to introduce the kids to an old favorite experience… let’s just say, fifteen years and the difference between going in the dark with a few pre drinks on board does matter. The SafeHouse could benefit from some maintenance and cleaning but it did not distract from the kids experience and afterall, this is what we came back for. Our ‘agent’ was great and timely with both food and drinks. The scavenger hunt was thoroughly enjoyed by the kids, they completed the majority of it between ordering and the food arrival which provided for great table conversation. The meals were as expected, if you are coming for the food then you might be disappointed but if you are good with typical bar food and presentation you’ll be just fine. We completed the scavenger hunt after cleaning up our damage report and escaped via the secret exit. It was overall a very fun experience and one the kids will continue to talk about. Thank you for the opportunity to give them a memorable experience.

    It was frustrating that the restaurant wouldn’t allow us to make our reservation for 25 people even though on their website it clearly states that you can call them to reserve a larger group, and they had tons of space available at that time. We had to make a bunch of individual table reservations, which was complicated for us. Also not allowed to split the bill at the table (most restaurants have no problem with this). Aside from that, Safe House is a fun experience, the food is decent, our server was friendly.

    The place is great. Fun to find and get in to. The food is always good and reasonably priced. Service is generally somewhat lacking. I got my food but no silverware to eat it with for 10-15 afterward and I had to ask. The server usually only checks one and usually near the end. No drink refills. Still, the place is totally worth going to and I’ll be back

    Really enjoyed this place! Was hesitant based on some of the reviews, but so glad we decided to check it out. We were a group of 3 adults and 2 teens. I wasn't sure how the teens would like, but they loved it!! They thought the place was so cool and even enjoyed the little scavenger hunt. I'm glad we didn't have the password as having to do a little performance was fun and we enjoyed getting to watch other guests as well. So many cool things to see in this place that you likely need to go back again to see it all. The food was good and the cheese curds were great!!

    This is a great place to eat in Milwaukee. The atmosphere is as good as it gets. The food was great. I highly recommend the cheese curds for an appetizer. Best I have ever had. I always get Mac and cheese if it’s on the menu. If a place puts it on the menu it has to be good. It did not disappoint. The. Drinks were just as tasty. Great dinner all around!

    Late opening at 11 am- we did have reservations. No one there to have us guess the password or have us do the funny activities to get in. No one greeted us. Slow service. Food quality not equal to the cost. Our family was really looking forward to this trip and it was unfortunately an expensive bust.

    This was a really fun experience as only I knew why we were heading down the alley and looking for a red door. The food was really good, and I didn't feel like the prices were out of line. The only bummer is that they should give every table the scavenger hunt type sheets as we were just told they were up front, and they didn't really encourage us or explain anything about how it works. That would have gotten us to explore the whole place instead of just the area we were seated in. Overall, I would recommend this stop if you're heading to Milwaukee.
