Smyth is inspired by the days gone by term for blacksmithing. We honor the blacksmith and his craft by creating cuisine that reflects the handcrafted, soulful trade of transforming raw materials into works of art. We draw seasonally from the bounty that Wisconsin and the Midwest have to offer. Smyth is an intelligent balance between the playful and the traditional.

The Brunch is one of the best around and I drive the 2 hour round trip several times a year. There is a buffet area with omelet, ham and prime rib station and an assortment of pastry and desert dishes and chafing dishes with eggs, crepes, bacon, sausage, potatoes, ribs, smoked salmon and cheese platers. There is a kitchen menu which had crab Benedict, red velvet pancakes, biscuits and gravy (this menu changes) All the food is top notch and delicious and mimosas are almost bottomless.

Overpriced!! The menu is extremely small and they ran out of certain items. You'd think with such a limited menu they would Blow away what they do serve. The chicken dish ( entree size but very small serving) was dry & tasteless and had to be sent back.

They asked if we would like bread- we said yes and when the bill came we found out it was $7.00 for a small baguette and butter.
Everything is al a carte... main entree dishes are extremely small and don't even come with a salad or vegetable or starch side. This would all be ok but when you pay $30.00 for a small piece of fish & then have to order a side of fries so your full is ridiculous!!

No Vegetarian options at all!

Overpriced and under delivers

We came on a snowy day for Brunch in April. There were 4 of us and we were celebrating
actually Christmas. (Date was first available for us) So the snow coming down was appropriate. Food was quite good. Ambiance nice. No rush for eating or staying. Staff attentive but now overbearing. Only downside was coffee. Should have a pot on the table. Did not stay warm in the cup. Will come back.

Food was very good. Had the special for the night, tenderloin and mashed potatoes but did not come with anything else, not even bread, had to pay extra for that. So for $45 a plate was not worth the money.

Easter brunch at Smyth was delicious! We all enjoyed the variety of food choices in the buffet and everything was prepared and presented well. It was a bit more expensive than I thought it would be, however. I’m not sure that we each had $50 worth of brunch food. Would dine there again, if given the chance.

Had a great time at Smyth! Went for my moms birthday and was there with the whole family, all 6 of us. Excellent service in the restaurant, but the bar lounge service was definitely lacking. Overall, 8/10, would recommend.

This was roughly our 10th time to Smyth since the they opened. Other experiences have been hit-or-miss: Great ambiance, but mediocre food one time. The next time, food was wonderful, service was 'meh'...Such a wonderful building and vibe, we just had to keep giving Smyth a chance year after year, hoping that we would love it as much as we wanted to! This time we were pleasantly surprised with all aspects of our meal/experience. Decor and ambiance were terrific as usual. We had a thoughtful, competent server who managed to convey a dry sense of humor without being snarky & condescending - and who actually checked back multiple times throughout our meal to find out how we were doing and what he could bring us (!!). The brunch items were all beautifully laid out, re-stocked immediately when they ran low, kept warm as needed, and all tasted great. We were impressed by the thoughtfulness of the menu. The lemon ricotta crepes and local bacon were standouts, and my husband ordered TWO orders of biscuits with gravy off the menu (they were THAT good!). We would recommend Sunday brunch at Smyth to anyone!

This was our first time to the Sunday brunch at Smyth and I was looking forward to it based on the menu, the reviews and what other people had said. Unfortunately, we were disappointed, mainly because a number of the food items were unavailable by the time we wanted them. The brunch was advertised for 10-2, so with a 12 o'clock booking, we fully expected a full range of items, but unfortunately, there was not. It seemed after 12 o'clock food items were not replenished. They had run out of crab cakes (so the crab eggs benedict was a regular one), the smoked salmon and most of the deserts. By the time we got to desert (about 1pm) all that was left were muffins and fruit/granola parfaits. I still liked Smyth for brunch, but I would advise anyone going to make sure they got there well before 12 to get the full range of food.

We had brunch and it was excellent!! Everything was delicious and the atmosphere is perfect for a Sunday morning or anytime actually! Service was friendly and helpful without being overbearing. The smoked salmon was so good. Mimosas were delightful and you get 3 with your brunch. I can’t say enough great things! I’ll be back I just wish it was next weekend already!

Everything was amazing and the waitress was fantastic! Only complaint was the food took forever! Besides that it was an overall memorable experience.

-Also they should provide complimentary bread. They should also have more options for side dishes.

The food was amazing, the ambiance of the entire restaurant went well with the menu. The brunch wasn't just buffet style, they made fresh small plates that are well prepared and done in a timely manner, the service was on time friendly well versed in what the specials are and enjoyed there job.... One of the best Brunches I have had in years. Will go back on a regular basis.

We were celebrating a birthday and unfortunately caught Smyth on a bad night. The hotel was holding a tattoo "fest" in the lobby that evening. There were several woman wearing little to no clothing (including one in a G-String thong bottom and see though body stocking top) parading through the restaurant that evening. While distracting that wasn't the biggest issue with the evening. There was a live band in the lobby that started shortly after 8 PM. It was next to impossible to hold a conversation with the person across the table once the music started. I feel the restaurant should have called and provided us with notice that this event was happening as we would have switched to a different location to enjoy the visit with our out of town guests.

The atmosphere and service were absolutely amazing. The food was good, didn't have anything bad, however nothing really amazing either. We could've gone to other restaurants we have been to in the past and had better food, in my opinion, for half the cost. I get the attraction of it, the hotel is very cool and a place to be. The whole place is beautiful so it has great ambiance. Our server was beyond great, very attentive and even gave us a dessert on the house to celebrate our special occasion.

Food was exceptional and well worth a trip to this restaurant. Everything was very well prepared and presented. Unique preparation of food. I recommend the Bread starter with bone marrow infused butter and seafood tray app followed by risotto, scallops and beef fillets. Our wait staff was very efficient and friendly. Our only negative was room was very loud, music from bar very loud in dining area and with large table for 4 it was very difficult to have conversation. A nice treat for dinner.

Best brunch in Milwaukee! We went for a friends birthday and had such a great time. The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The price is incredibly reasonable for how much food you can get and how high quality the food is, along with having so many mimosas. Will definitely be back!

We attended the Sunday Brunch. There were 4 items to be ordered from the menu and served to you - we tried 3 of the 4 and loved all three. The grits and braised short ribs were the best I have ever had. The selection at the buffet tables was excellent with a wide variety of different foods. I have gone twice, already have a third brunch set up and will continue to recommend to my friends. A great find!

We were there for a special occasion celebrating a college graduation for a friend. The Sunday brunch was very good. The prime rib is worth the trip in from Burlington alone. (wait for the medium rare cut in the middle!) You'll find some delectable desserts and some not so common brunch items, your mimosa's are included with your brunch (3). The service is very good as well, making for a very relaxing visit. We definitely will be back!
