Service was exceptional - sat at the bar and had the soup and French Dip - this is arguably one of the best French Dip sandwiches I have ever had. I didn't finish my drink before another one was there and the price was very reasonable.

We visited with a fairly large group of people, which can often create difficulties. The staff was amazing, constantly returning to the table to ensure we were happy and didn't need anything further. A large variety of food was ordered and everyone was thrilled. This is a class restaurant. I've visited several times now and have been more than pleased... More

We went here for their Friday night fish fry and left with a headache. The food was good, the the noise from others in the place made any conversation nearly impossible. We don't plan to go back.

Food is very good here, but you must be prepared for a lively and noisy bar atmosphere in the evenings. If you don't mind that, you will be pleased with the varied menu, moderate prices, and well made food. We especially enjoy the fish fry. But as seniors, we pick off times to dine, or choose the back room option,... More

After a long flight from the west coast, my wife picked me up at the airport late one Friday night, and feeling like a drink, I suggested we hit Amelia's on Layton. She agreed and off we went. The bar tender was friendly and helpful, the food (Pizza) came out quickly and tasted great, and the drinks were made well... More

Always wanted to eat here but never found the chance. Started out with the cheese nuggets that were better than most. The cubano looked fantastic ad tasted even better. Lots of meet, ham, pork, cheese, pickles, with the sauces on the side to add for your liking. Defineately will return next time in MKE.

Don't bother going if you want any kind of good or interesting food. You won't be poisoned but that isn't much of a draw. For what you get, you might as well have gone to McDonald's. Not being busy on Saturday night should have told us something. Service was ok but we should have gone to our favorite Chinese place... More

A good fish fry for all the family This is a busy restaurant with a tasty fish fry at competitive prices, adjacent to Mitchell Field. The menu was complete with a waitress who could please every customer. Stop for a pleasant afternoon or early evening experience. Worth driving for across town.

Our family went there for a late dinner which included 2 kids under 10. It was our first time there and it is split up with restaurant on the left, bar on the right with outdoor sitting.
