This was one of the worst dining experiences I've ever had. I tend to brag about the excellent quality of Milwaukee restaurants, so when some out of town guests joined me for dinner they were expecting great food. We were all disappointed in the experience...More

The food was very good--but the service was a little slow and the menu had very quirky dishes that did not seem appetizing that evening. Perhaps another time I would have given it 5 starts

We had a group of 10 go for dinner. We had the place to ourselves. The service was great. The group ordered a variety of items from the menu. I had the lobster Mac and it was very good. Would go again.

Take a walk in the historic 3rd Ward and enjoy a delicious lunch at an outdoor table. The turkey panini is chocked full of turkey and topped off with cranberries and walnuts. The $10 price is affordable. For an appetizer, try the chilled peach soup...More

The recent renaissance of Milwaukee’s Historic Third Ward has introduced the city to a new era of stylish metropolitan dining. Historically significant buildings are serving as the foundation for the many downtown restaurants that have surfaced in recent years. Following suit, Bourbon & Tunns Tavern opened its doors in the beautifully restored Queen Anne style building located at 221 N Broadway Avenue in 2002. Since the time of our inception, Bourbon & Tunns Tavern introduced an entirely new category of cuisine to Milwaukee’s contemporary culinary scene. Palm’s has spent years developing and fine tuning what today has become known as Global Fusion. Simply stated, Global Fusion begins with a classical French foundation and seamlessly fuses exotic worldly flavors to create distinctively enticing cuisine. Our chefs have established a reputation for crafting creative and exciting cuisine, and are continuously committed to keeping our customers equally enthusiastic about our food.
