Our party of 5 ate there for dinner and the spinach artichoke dip was super creamy and loaded. It is served with grilled marble rye. The chicken tender appetizer was super crunchy and had great ranch dip. It was a nice portion. The table next to us also got the spinach dip. They have a wide beer selection. The Farmer... More

I've had my share of corned beef sandwhiches and Reubens. There are some good ones out there, but if I really need the best, I go to McBob's! If you really want a Rueben, go for it. But if you want to see what made them famous, just order the Corned Beef. The restaurant/bar has a laid back neighborhood feel.... More

McBobs is a Milwaukee landmark & every patron that visits are fortunate to have y'all so easily accessible from the entire metro area! The corned beef, in all its mouth watering goodness, cannot be beat and may be the BEST anywhere! The burgers are thick & juicy and served on flakey buttery buns that make these burgers some of the... More

I've been here many times and always worth it. This morning my wife, son and I had breakfast. My wife loves the French Toast and scones. Always good. My son had Corn Beef, worlds best, and I tried a different egg dish from my normal McGinnity. I had the Dubliner Benedict. Nummy sauce with a bit of a bite and... More

A wide variety of tasty, homemade food...your belly will thank you! It's located pretty much the middle of Milwaukee, north of Miller park by a hop & a skip. I've taken out of town guests and all thanked me for introducing them. I heard of this place yrs back when I played a season of hurling, the ancient Irish field... More

My son told me if I enjoy Corned Beef, this was the best around and he was right!! Even though this place is a typical 'Tosa Neighborhood Tavern not much on ambiance but the food made me a believer. Excellent Corned Beef, Spring Rolls and Scottish eggs, etc. Everything was wonderful. We had a huge To Go order but the... More

Other food too. This local pub in Washington Heights area is a neighborhood favorite, but also a regional attraction. Big menu with classic Irish fare including corned beef, fish fry, potato pancakes, wilted spinach and garlic. They do not have a deep fryer, it's all pan fried or other methods. Nice staff, clean and stocked bathroom, accessible but snug physical... More

Yes it was 8:30 in the morning. Yes the Bloody Mary's w/chaser were great (mild/medium or hot), yes the corned beef, eggs, hash-browns and toast were great......even the second round of Bloodies but.....but....it was 8am. Defiantly a must-stop if you're in the area. I would stop in during the morning hours. The neighborhood gets crazy as the day goes on.... More
