My family and I happened upon this one in the middle of the day while driving around looking for somewhere in the area. I like that it's a brewpub meets restaurant allowing for delicious beers while still being kid-friendly for my brother's children to dine with us. The meal was tasty and the beer was wonderful (and I'm a bit... More

We stopped in for a mid-afternoon "flight" and a beer cheese soup. The service was attentive and dining area uncrowded. There are TV's, so it looks like a great place to watch a game. and enjoy the beer.

The brewery was recommended by by family members. Great atmosphere, good selections, great food. The walleye was very good, large portion and tasted fresh. We tried the beer , was okay, wouldn't go there just for the beer. The food was worth going there for. Would definitely go back again.

Met a couple of friends for dinner. Tried three different beers. All were watery and tasteless. The third I tried was a milk stout. It left an acidic, vinegary taste on my tongue. The glass felt bumpy on the outside - like it had not been washed properly. Ordered baked fish. It was rubbery. Employees were friendly and the building... More

A good menu to please almost anyone, the St Francis Brewery is open for lunch and dinner. Their Sunday Brunch is fantastic and a good value as well. In addition they do Brewmaster's Dinner events throughout the year, although get tickets quickly because they always sell out. They feature 7 house beers on tap all the time and then feature...

Eight of us from our men's group decided to have a Friday fish fry together and had heard good things about the St. Francis Brewery on the boarder between Bay View and St.Francis, Wisconsin. We arrived and were seated immediately, and our server took our dink orders. They offered a 8 sample of beers, equivalent of two regular beers, two... More

This is a new spot that lacks any old world charm or ambience, but the food and service is good. The beer selection will no doubt improve over time, but for now it is not the reason to visit. Just north of the airport, we went for lunch before a flight and realized it is very close and conveniet to... More

Wow this place is really a nice place. Very nice with awesome food. There menu is a little different from most places with there own flair and recipes. The place from the outside looks like it is huge and intimidating and it is just the opposite. It is open and airy with a great vibe. You can really relax or... More

St. Francis Brewery & Restaurant has been serving heavenly food and sinfully good beer to the St. Francis and Milwaukee community since April 2009. As a locally owned business, our restaurant creates a warm, family-friendly dining experience. Our full menu offers something for everyone with several unique items made with our beer or hand-crafted soda. Brewmaster Scott Hettig creates traditional brews with new seasonal and cask conditioned beers to try each month. Beers on tap at the restaurant are brewed on site with the option to buy or refill half-gallon growlers of our beer or hand-crafted soda.
