Very pricey. Waitstaff is ok. Two shrimp dinners 2 bowls French onion soup and two glasses of wine. $78.00 will not go again.

Good afternoon Louise Thank you for taking the time to review my restaurant. I am trying to look into how your total got to $78, but the numbers just aren't adding up. We serve 2 kinds of shrimp entrees, a smaller one at $9.99 and a Jumbo Battered Shrimp for $19.99. If you had the more expensive, Jumbo Shrimp, soup... More

It's my first time here. The first thing you notice is the wall and ceiling decorations. It's like a mini museum. We ordered a burger with fries and the shrimp platter. The orders were large and very good. Definitely would recommend and I will be back.

First of all, I ordered wine which came from as a split. Nothing wrong with that but the stem on the glass felt dirty in my fingers and I sent it back. I ordered the fish 1/2 and 1/2. One piece fried and one piece baked. The fried piece was very oily on the plate and the baked fish was... More

Great Fish Fry on Fridays and Wednesdays, the rest of the food is solid and won't disappoint you either the only thing I could say they do poorly is they haven't change the menu for a long, long time. There is diverse assortment of 30+ beers on tap and is one of the best beer bars in Milwaukee County south... More

Lucky for us, Ervs still had electricity during the wind storm. Had the french onion crock (only crock has the cheese) and it was very good. The turkey rueben was also very good and would have it again. My partners had the steak sandwich and were not as thrilled due to the soggy buns. They did like the steak and... More

Stopped for burgers for a Saturday lunch before journeying onto the Milwaukee Auto Show. They were fabulous. Heard about this place from friends and decided to try it out. Sat in the bar area and was in awe of all the decorations. We will definitely go back to try dinners and drinks.

Amazingly decorated , and very versatile. The food here is always very good and surprisingly Top Notch for what looks like just a bar. Prices are very reasonable and service is quite good. Locally Erv's is well known for its decorations and for the way it we decorate for each holiday.

Erv's Friday fish fry has long been a favorite for my family. When a group of my friends wanted to meet for lunch on a Wednesday, I suggested Erv's for its location and its menu. We enjoyed the Bloody Mary's while we chatted, we were not rushed to hurry up and order. Our waitresses was patient and attentive to all... More

Erv's Mug is one of our regular reliable stops and is a good place with an interesting ambiance. The food is reliably excellent too, with approximately 30 different tap beers and a very friendly staff.

When you first enter you will be in the bar area, the dining is in the back. The place is a museum of beer advertising mirrors and trays. No doubt they damaged some of the collectability by securing them to the walls and ceiling. Yes, look up, they are on the ceiling too. Decor aside, the food is tasty and... More
