Being loyal patrons of Ricardos in Greendale we decided to try Riverfront, their sister restaurant. It was awful!!! Our server took forever to come to our table and when she finally did she took forever to come back. We watched her and she went to the bar and did a shot with the bartender before placing our drink order which... More

We went on a Friday night, was surprised by how large the place is, can accommodate a big group. Our food was good but didn't match the downtown prices. $135 for a fish fry, chicken parm, fettuccini alfredo (no meat) and an Italian sausage sandwich, an app of cheese curds and 3 beers, 2 jack and cokes and 2 fruity...

Brought a group of 5 for dinner. Unfortunately the weather was too cold for sitting out on the patio, but we had a good time anyway. HH prices on drinks was helpful. Food was good --- I had the Mediterranean Pizza, a few in my group had the Italian Beef sandwiches, and the Tuna Dish. We all enjoyed our food.... More

Specialty pizza restaurant on the river in downtown Milwaukee. Great selection of pizzas, toppings and pizza sizes. A personal pizza was more than enough for one; we ordered three different pizzas for our party of three so that we could sample. Had plenty of leftovers for later that day!

The pizza was good, but our service wasn't great. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and there were only about 5 other tables filled. Our server took our order quickly and delivered our pizza once it was done, but it took her forever to bring the check. And once she did, we had to wait 10 minutes for her... More

enjoyed the pizza and if you sat near the river side--the view of river traffic was cool---but this is not a place for a business lunch or a quiet romantic dinner----it is for a noisy party atmosphere ( at least it was for us on a Saturday night at 6pm )

We exited the festival to find some decent food at a reasonable price. This place is just outside the south gate. We were on our way to BBQ, but decided to stop in. The riverfront seating was quite soothing, complete with boat tie ups. We shared calamari for an appetizer and then the special pizza of the day. Each was... More

Pizza was just average; service was absolutely terrible. Our waiter disappeared for over 20 minutes. I waited outside the kitchen for him, and asked for our bill. 5 mins later he was standing at the server station hitting on a waitress. I walked up and reminded him I was waiting for the bill; he brought us the bill...and then disappeared.... More

A friend and I went here for lunch and sat on the patio. It is right on the river and has decent views. It is a bit far from the rest of the restaurants on the river and is more secluded and closer to Summerfest ground. My only complaint about the patio was the noise. There is major construction going... More
