You’re Going to Enjoy Dining in Downtown Milwaukee

Our Hotel is near the Best Milwaukee Restaurants

Great food is half the fun, and maybe even more for some of us. Whether you’re in the mood to experiment at the hands of a gastronomical wizard or want to fill up on hearty, highly celebrated comfort food, there is a dining destination just waiting for you.

It’s possible that we’re a tad biased, but we think there’s no better a spot to start your culinary city tour than our own Blue Ribbon Pub & Grill, where only the finest food and spirits will be offered. Where else do you think you’ll be able to get any number of menu favorites with a side of steampunk design sensibility and unparalleled service? And all that without having to leave the hotel!

A Flavor for Every (Food) Fetish

There are so many fantastic and celebrated restaurants throughout Milwaukee. Below you’ll find just a handful of our favorite spots, but our personable staff will be happy to share some of their personal most highly rated palate-pleasers.

Three Brothers Bar and Restaurant
2414 South St. Clair Street – 414.481.7530
Milwaukeeans have enjoyed the Serbian cuisine from Three Brothers Bar and Restaurant since 1954. You’ll love the down-to-earth feel of the dining room and energetic 85-year-old owner who will occasionally come out of the kitchen to tell some amazing stories.

931 East Wisconsin Avenue – 414.727.5555
Coast offers an elegant atmosphere and deliciously inspired seafood dishes. You could easily go overboard with their indulgent desserts, too.

Sanford Restaurant
1547 N Jackson Street – 414.276-9608
Modern-Ethnic. Serving the finest possible ingredients, coming from as close to home as possible, supporting local farms and artisans whenever possible.

1101 South 2nd Street – 414.212.8843
Experience, fresh, seasonal American fare at its finest at Braise. You’ll also find a number of fantastic cocktail creations to enjoy at the bar or with your sure-to-be unforgettable meal.

Odd Duck
2352 South Kinnickinnic Avenue – 414.763.5881
The menu may change to accommodate market finds, but the high level of satisfaction never does. There is also a full bar, and we would definitely suggest making a reservation.

Umami Moto
718 North Milwaukee Street – 414.727.9333
Experience the best that the Asian-fusion genre has to offer at Umami Moto. A world of flavor and some pretty unbelievable desserts await.

La Merenda
125 East National Avenue – 414.389.0125
It’s never easy to get a table at La Merenda. This casual tapas bar incorporates flavors from around the world and fresh local ingredients in creating some unbelievable culinary creations.

Safe House
779 North Front Street – 414.271.2007
As much an attraction as a restaurant, Safe House is spy-themed, and the proprietors take its operation seriously. First, you need to locate it, and then submit the password to gain entry. Don’t know it? You can gain access by passing a spy test. Once you’re in, enjoy spy-themed dishes and drinks. The special agent paraphernalia is worth perusing as well.

741 North Milwaukee Street – 414.225.0000
Enjoy Italian dishes done right at Zarletti. The big windows facing Milwaukee Street make for the best people watching, too.

This barely scratches the surface of our favorite spots for great dining in Milwaukee. Contact our area-savvy staff for directions and further recommendations . . . and happy dining!
