Last year before the Milwaukee Irish Fest. I went here with my two friends. We had been going to their Fest restaurant, for many years. And wanted to see, and try their main location. The service was slow / bad. We all had the corned...More

One of the better fish fries in Milwaukee. My husband and I have enough leftovers of good fish for lunch the next day. Breakfasts are outstanding too. Specialties include several versions of hash and eggs fare that are overloaded with tasty corned beef. The Bloody...More

We stopped here on the way from downtown Milwaukee to Wauwatosa and we're glad we did. Demitri and the other staff all were prompt and fun to talk with. Bloody Mary was excellent, and it comes with a chaser. My partner had the blueberry pancakes...More

In a town that has Jake's, it's difficult to recommend anywhere else for corned beef, but McBob's is definitely worth a visit. The corned beef is stellar and McBob's is a great neighborhood bar to boot. Especially convenient for anyone going to a Brewers game...More

Having heard about McBob's on Around the Corner with John McGivern, and loving reuben sandwiches, we decided it was worth the drive from Racine. It was absolutely worth the drive! A small, local pub located on North Ave between 49th & 50th, you have to...More

My kids and I went with friends to McBob's. It has a typical pub atmosphere with lots of interesting decor with an Irish theme. There was an electronic darts game, which they allowed my kids to use without paying while we waited for our food....More

Unimpressive from outside; warm and friendly inside. Popular place for locals day and night. Thickest, juiciest and best corned beef on rye you will ever find.
