Went for dinner tonight and was not disappointed. Michael was our server and he was great...attentive, informative and fun. We had an appetizer of the wonton wrapped mozzarella sticks with marinara dipping sauce-melty and wonderful. I ordered the prime rib French dip sandwich and have to say it was the best French dip I’ve had. We will return to try more of the menu.

The wait was about 45 minutes long, which was a bit frustrating but it was fine. We ordered the beat and goat cheese salad which was absolutely divine. We also ordered the sliders which were great, the haystack onion, which could be a bit more seasoned, and the Russian, which needed more sauce and more corned beef. Our server was wonderful but the bar tender wasn't very friendly. The prices were great though! Would absolutely go back.

The best perch in Milwaukee!! Love this place! When ever we’re in Milwaukee we go to the Swinging Door for perch or blue gill on Friday. We also love their steak specials on Saturday! The owners are fantastic and work hard to please everyone, great cocktails too!!

Not sure what to expect. Very pleased with overall experience. Our server, Kim was just our style. Easy going but very attentive to our requests. Wedge salad, garlic mussels, and hot chx dip all passed with gold stars! Very very good!
Will definitely return next visit to Milwaukee!

Between the fish fry, amazing cocktails (really well-priced mule!), vermouth carrots, and ribs, this was maybe one of the best meals my husband and I have had. Fun, nostalgic ambiance too. Would drive all the way up from Chicago to go again, and there's a lot of good food in Chicago!
