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.
Really cool space and the food was really good. We shared a bunch of starters and it was perfect.
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 restaurant was great. Low dim lighting, music playing, great menu & wine list/drink list. We went back for brunch the next day. It was great!
Great food. Great service. Nice ambiance. We'll be back. The Iron Horse Hotel and Smyth are a little off the beaten path, but definitely worth tracking down.
Ambiance, food, and drink were all superb! The Wisconsin Old Fashioned tops my list from local eateries/bars. Décor was cool and comfortable. Teresa was a fantastic waitress. Hoping to stay in hotel next time!
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.
Drinks and dinner meal were exceptional , all tho the main course meal took a bit long it was worth the wait
Great service and food but the steaks were on the salty side. Great cut of meat though and perfectly cooked. Delicious drinks and a great red blend at a great price. I always enjoy eating here.
Filet and Scallops were both exceptional. Service was great and I liked the atmosphere.. There was a showing of Indian motorcycles and some live music that completed the evening. I would recommend this place to others.
Fantastic food for the value. Create and delicious.
Wine, food , service was all exceptional. Price was not cheap but for the exceptional experience it was well worth the money.
Either needs more short rib or fewer grits but everything was tasty as always
Smyth is our go to brunch spot! Food is always good, drinks are great and the service is outstanding. We always ask for Marcus on Sunday as he's a great waiter and make the experience even better. LOVE SMYTH and THE IRON HORSE!!
Amazing food and service.
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 loved our creative and tasty food, served by a knowledgeable and attentive server. We plan to return.
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!
New Year’s day Brunch was Great along with their regular breakfast menu. I know I can always get a great meal with Excellent service every time i busy here!!
Excellent all the way around - bartender Tim was exceptional and knows how to not only make a great cocktail but also how to interact with bar patrons just the right amount - he also explained ALL of the specials that evening much better than our waitress did. Our dinners were fantastic, we enjoyed the filet ( done exactly as ordered) and the lamb shank - delicious! Can’t wait to visit again!
Lovely ambiance, great service (thank you, Theresa and Mark!), delicious food! Thank you.
This was a great lunch! The menu is a bit limited for lunch but our server suggested a few items which helped a lot. We had the beef sandwich and our food was fabulous. Oh and by the way, the fries are amazing. There is a hint of bbq on them making them out of this world and I'm not usually a fry fan!
As always, Smyth’s brunch did not disappoint. One of the best places for brunch in Milwaukee. Everything was amazing from the food to the atmosphere to the service. Highly recommend!
Food was amazing! Not great service from server. Waited too long when ordering brunch items from kitchen with no updates or explanation. Would’ve preferred sitting in the dining area rather than the bar when eating a $50 per person brunch. I love the Iron Horse, but our NYE/day experience did not live up to what we’re used to at IH.
New Year’s Day brunch was hit-or-miss. Great service, great mimosas, decent charcuterie, but it’s hard to keep buffet food warm, so the lobster bisque and French toast were a pass. Good salads, but find a new seafood purveyor or skip the oysters/clams. Shrimp was good, but the coffee was weak.
Great flavor to the food and portions were perfect. But the food did come out colder than it should have. Regardless we will return
We were at the thanksgiving brunch and it was so good we went to the Christmas Day brunch. Food is high quality with enough choices for every palate. We have also been to the Sunday brunch it was great as well.
Love the ambiance and you can dress in what ever you are comfortable in. Definitely will continue to dine there.
Portion sizes are more like garnishes. Terrible value which is a shame because it is a beautiful space.
We had a girls brunch (just 3 of us) and Christmas gift exchange at Smyth on a late Sunday morning. First off, I love the decor in this place. The service was outstanding as well. There is a made-to-order omelette bar along with chef-carved prime rib and ham. While the quantity of food wasn't expansive compared to some places I've been to, it was still quite extensive and the food was really good. They also have some additional items you can order from the kitchen with your brunch, such as red velvet pancakes. And on top of it, the brunch includes 3 mimosas! I filled my plate 3x but was too full to try everything. When we were done, we decided to do our gift-opening in the lobby so as not to take up a table and the waiter even helped us carry our gifts. Everything about this place is top notch! Will definitely come back!
Our food tasted great! The service was not great and the portions were pretty tiny. 3 scallops for an entree is a pretty sad portion, even for a lady, vs a larger guy.
The bill was very expensive compared to our dinner for same event last year at a different restaurant where we had great good, exceptional
servers, and plenty of food.
We were not that impressed. everything tasted good, but wish we could have had a little more.
Drinks were good but expensive
Entrees were very good in terms of taste and presentation but portions were small and prices were high.
Scallops were $26 and 2 diners ordered them. They each only got 3 scallops and they were the size of a quarter. Um, that $8.67 per scallop!!!! With no sides, everything is a la carte.
Boullaibaise was excellent but portion was small.
Good food but we all went home hungry and much lighter in the wallet
Smyth was unexpectedly great, we will absolutely go back. The food is very well done - the kitchen really knows what it's doing. My husband loved his bouillabaisse, and you must try the burrata salad which is very unusual and truly delicious. The only miss for the evening was the underdone risotto. Which was surprising since the other thing to know about this restaurant is that at least at dinnertime it's a restaurant for sitting and relaxing and chatting between courses (sometimes just a touch too long) not a restaurant where the dishes come out quickly.
Excellent food and service.
I was there for Sunday Brunch, made a reservation, didn't have to, the place was maybe 5% occupied. After we sat down, it took at least 10 minutes for the waitress to show up to explain the menu and get our drink order. $33 brunch includes juice, coffee and mimosas, hot tea that I ordered was extra. Very small selection of dishes at the buffet, closer to good continental breakfast at some hotels then a brunch buffet. The food was just decent, nothing I would order again and way overpriced. I went to brunch buffets for $50-$75 and I can truly say that the quality and selection was worth it and justifiable, definitely not the case here...no wonder it was almost empty.
Although the food was presented in a wonderful fashion, the amount of food was minimal for the price. We had dined here several years ago and thought it was wonderful then. This time, it was a disappointment. My wife ordered a beet salad and got a paltry portion. She also ordered scallops and got 3 for about $26. My fillet was good, but unordinary.
