My kids and I met my husband downtown Milwaukee for lunch and he took us to his favorite lunch spot. The ambiance of the place took me in right away- unique light fixtures and darker paneled wood. It was busy, but we were seated within 5 minutes. The adults had lunch specials and the kids had an appetizer and soup.... More

My son and I grabbed a lunch bite here on a weekend trip to Milwaukee. It was busy on a Friday lunch - expect a bit of a wait. We decided to eat at the bar - they serve a full menu there if you're open to eating at the bar. My son had a hamburger & raved about the... More

Food was very nice, I ordered the suggestion of the day, it was a sunday and I got amazing potatos! The price was more than fair. I also loved the vibes of this restaurant, gay friendly! I definitely have to go back and try different dishes.

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We started out with the brussel sprout appetizer and it was phenomenal. Then my husband had the French dip per the recommendation he asked for from the waitress and was not disappointed. He loved it! I had the veggie melt which was very good, and the fries were the best we've had in a... More

The Swingin' Door is the perfect hideaway in Downtown Milwaukee. Quiet, relaxed atmosphere with great food and great staff.

Hands down the best in Milwaukee. Be sure to make a reservation on Fridays otherwise you'll be waiting a while. Either way it's worth it. The owners, Casey and his wife, are amazing people.
