This is a local joint in Milwaukee. We're visiting a friend who lives around the corner from this place and wanted a quick dinner. YUMMY!! I had the braised lamb shank and spinach pie. My husband had the chicken park. Both were excellent! And our dinners came with soup or salad AND dessert! All for an amazingly low price. We'll... More

I usually go here for breakfast, which is always good. I've been here for lunch a couple times--sandwiches are good, but what I really like is that lunch comes with soup and a dessert. Highly recommended.

Ashley our waitress was so attentive and efficient! We enjoyed our steak and lobster. Steak average, but lobster and shrimp really good! I would come back again. The atmosphere so, so, but did not seem to matter.

We go very often for the fish fry and it is in our top 5 favorites in all of Milwaukee! We also love their eggs benedict. The owner and waitresses are so genuinely friendly, we always feel so welcome and appreciated. A really cozy neighborhood restaurant, with great friendly service, excellent portions and inexpensive.

The staff is nice the food is good, and the prices are reasonable. The owner is often there and is very quick to see that customers are well taken care of. I wish the focus on authentic Greek food were better then it is , but all in all I highly recommend this place.

You get a Surf and Turf dinner for one and a choice of poultry dinner for one PLUS a bar drink apiece PLUS dessert for $29.95 plus tax. How can you go wrong? The Lobster is a four-ounce tail and the steak is 8 ounces. My wife had that and I had the Chicken Piccata which was excellent. They have... More
