    We thought this spy restaurant was super cool and fun! Definitely a unique experience. My kids (8 and 16) loved it! The best part was walking around the restaurant and solving clues. There was so much to see!! The cocktails were great! The food was pretty good. Overall a good value.

    Safehouse is a very interactive place to dine. The service was nice, the decor was very interesting and the scavenger hunt was fun! It is also family friendly. I will definitely go back.

    We had a great time! The atmosphere is uniquely fun! Bartender Gator severed up some of the best Brandy Old-fashioneds in the Milwaukee area, (think Ishnala Old-fashioneds caliber). The food was just as delicious. Our Server Marin gave top notch service and was incredibly funny with her quick-witt and banter.

    The server didn't explain or provide the Safe House search card. The food was subpar for the price. The drinks (fish bowl), Magic Mike, and the hunt for clues were the best parts. This was more of a one-and-done type of place. I would recommend it if you just want a drink and a fun little scavenger hunt date night. However, I would eat somewhere else before you get there.

    We had lunch with our grandchildren - it was a fun experience for them - good food, great ambiance. Our server - Phoenix - was great. We had the privilege of dining in the special turnstile booth. Phoenix must have spun us around about 6 times - each time very cheerfully. We'll be back.

    I have been to The Safe House many times over the years. I returned with friends from out of town recently. I was so disappointed in the whole experience! I will not be returning. The food was not the best, the portions were small, the prices were high, and there was a $3.00 "entertainment surcharge" added to the bill unexpectedly! There are so many choices in Milwaukee dining... sad to say, skip The Safe House.

    One meal was to be gluten free. Our person could have gotten very ill . We sent it back. One person was served the wrong sandwich and charged. We had to send that back. Had to wait for both meals forever. They charged us full price until we complained. Also had to wait on our reservation and asked to be seat. There were open tables. Bad experience

    This was the first time I'd been back to the Safehouse after Marcus Corp took it over and made it family friendly. I guess I had too high of expectations...I myself took my husband and 13 year old there, but I had no idea the place would be running amok with little kids! I knew it wouldn't be the "bar" atmosphere I remembered from my younger days...but it seemed a bit run down, and of course they were short staffed like everyone is now. Our server was pleasant and did the best she could based on how much was expected of her with other patrons. I don't blame them at all for being short staffed, it just wasn't as good as I'd hoped. My 13 year old loved the food, I found it to be meh...like something I could have gotten at Culvers. The ambience is fun, but little kids were running EVERYWHERE. So if that is what you are looking for, then add this to you list of places to take your family.

    It turns out they are not open on Mondays. You would this if they are closed Open Table would not let you make a reservation. You would also this that their web site would not state they are open. I had to take my work team someplace else for our Christmas Lunch. May I suggest Motor the service and food was awesome.

    Safehouse needs an update! The images of automatic weapons on the tabletops are offensive and traumatic for many people. It would be easy to cover with white paper or resurface tables. For a place that calls itself kid-friendly this needs to be changed. Staff were friendly and kind to children and service was good. Food was not great, but was okay.

    The ambiance was cool and concept is very cool but the table we sat at was in a room that was freezing cold. Our waitress took 30 minutes to serve our drinks and we were there over an hour before getting any food. We were not given any napkins or silverware (I had to grab them from another empty table). The food was subpar at best. I had the tacos and there was only two small tacos (most places serve three) and the fish on them was almost non existent. Would not recommend.

    Safehouse is a unique restaurant and one that I’d put on a short list of anyone visiting Milwaukee, especially if they have kids. The staff was courteous, as usual, and the food and drinks were good, too. My only issue was deciphering the spy-themed menu names, trying to figure out what I was actually ordering!

    Seriously disappointed in the prime rib sandwich. Literally about 20x more bun than beef! The flavor was good and you’d do well to move what little meat there was to 1/2 the sandwich and throw the other half of the ciabatta roll out. Unless you just wanna fill up on bread?? Expensive! Pretty pour value, yeah, I know, it’s the Safe House so you’re kinda paying for the novelty but this last visit was the most disappointing one we’ve had.

    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.
