A friend and I went to c. 1880 for dinner and our expectations were exceeded. The food was creative, beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. Lots of good wine choices. Excellent service. I can't wait to go back with my husband!

I’m in town for business and it’s Friday night. I contemplated staying in my hotel room and having the remaining pad Thai from last night, but decided to treat myself and go back to C.1880. I had been there during an August trip to Milwaukee....More

2nd time. Food, service, wine list very, very good. Atmosphere is typical "historic" Milwaukee ambience in Walker's Point just minutes from the 3rd Ward.

For over 5 years, nestled in the up and coming neighborhood of Historic Walkers Point, c.1880 points to highlight the pallet with not only flavor, but sight. With respect to using as much locally sourced meat and produce as possible, the flavors are meant to compliment the terroir from which it was received. Beverage choices have been hand selected to compliment all of the creations of Chef Hauck. Award winning and extensive wine list with full bar and creative signature cocktails. Intimate, romantic, yet adventurous, all the things you will find when you visit.
