First time here and won't be back due to service. The food was very good from what everyone ate.the chicken shrimp fish and steak. What took the stars down is the service. The beverages went not being taken care of throughout service. We waited 45 minutes for the bill. And dishes piled up until the end of service. Not sure... More

Dobie's has been around for years. We love their lazy susan. While it is lazy and doesn't turn you'll soon forget that for the wonderful variety of appetizers on it. Their food is well prepared and consistent. Consistent seems to be a challenge for many restaurants but not for Dobie's. Why? The owners are in the kitchen cooking and supervising... More

Best Shrimp I have ever had! They are huge, at least twice as big as gulf shrimp. The relish tray is unique and really good. It included Swedish Meatball, Beets, pickled corn, pickled green beans, cucumbers in cream sauce. Excellent!

I have been here a number of times in my life. As usual, the petite filet was to die for. I have never been disappointed with my food here. The French onion soup is delicious. The lazy susan had a cucumber salad on it that was sooo good. The service was wonderful. My husband, who was out of town, was... More

Everyone reviews this place as the best in town. I must disagree. I ordered my 40 dollar steak medium well. Recieved the steak more like medium rare. Poor service, over priced food, i will not visit again.

Dobie's will not disappoint! Best steaks in Milwaukee. I love jumbo shrimp, a favorite of mine for 40+ years. A wonderful Super Club experience including a Lazy Susan.

Their Prawns are not only perfectly cooked but, are huge as well! Have been going here for over 15 years for special occasions! The food and service... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Milwaukee. It reminds me of the food they served in Supper Clubs in the late 50's and 60's. There was a relish tray and a variety of salad dressings on the table.portions were generous. I had the tenderloin. it was cooked perfectly and seasoned just right. Service was very good. My friends... More
