I've been here a few times and had very good experiences. Went here recently and was more mediocre. Soup was not very warm (bordering on cool), bread was from the ends of the loaf and only a couple pieces, and entree was average, at best. Service was great, however, and I do have to say the dessert was outstanding!

We wanted a new place to eat and were told of Triskele's which is not a new restaurant but new to us. It is in the 5th Ward/Bayview area of Milwaukee which is trending now. The owners of the restaurant are on sight cooking and bartending every night and are wonderful. Extremely friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is in a... More

Quaint place always with a unique menu.... They have daily specials and the menu is constantly changing. I hadn't been there for years and actually forgot what the name was but when other plans fell through it was recommended to go here and we ordered a ton of appetizers and were even too full for dessert! The Thursday specials are... More

Warm inviting place - the people and surroundings. Stopped for $5!! apps at the bar the other night. Not sure which was my favorite - the spring rolls or the hen dumplings. Both were excellent and I will be back for mussels on Tuesday! Just wish this one was closer to home...

We got all you can eat mussels, every Tuesday night. Our server was a lively, beautiful pixie who looked as though she had traveled from the Caribbean to serve us our fresh, delicious aquatic food. Very relaxed atmosphere. Love this place!

This is such a great spot. Classic Milwaukee tavern feel as soon as you walk in the door. Nobody putting on airs, customers of all ages, a kind of throwback. But the food is definitely of this culinary age as it demonstrates originality and expert handling. Menu arranged in three columns: meat, seafood and vegetarian so there are choices for... More

Milwaukee is home to multiple smaller independent restaurants. Triskele's is a neighborhood gem, small corner "bar" with a tiny kitchen. Don't be fooled, they put forth some brilliant food! In addition, there are excellent bartenders who welcome you as "family," and offer some of the best classic cocktails I've had anywhere. Their Old Fashioned rivals my Dad's (world's best.) The...

Been noticing their FB page & was anxious to try out their AYCE mussels on Tuesdays. So happy we did. This place is fantastic. My wife loved her squash ravioli. We will definitely make this a regular stop. Our waitress was awesome & had a great personality & took very good care of us as she kept the mussels coming.

We visited Milwaukee on our way to Green Bay and this restaurant was recommended by some friends! It was such a nice place! The food was very good. I had the macaroni and cheese and a salad. It was delicious, the best I have ever had! The owner was very accommodating! Had such a great experience! I highly recommend it!

We were looking for a new place to try and our daughter suggested Triskele's; she had heard about their Tuesday night all-you-can-eat mussel special. This is a very casual place and the atmosphere is cozy.Service was welcoming and prompt. I really enjoyed the Blue Cheese and Egg Chopped Salad. It comes with smoked bacon, tomatoes, red onions, and a light... More
