    Milwaukee restaurant recs requested

    We are going to Milwaukee in late May and would like recommendations for restaurants. We are particularly interested in German food as my wife is from Stuttgart and likes to sample her"peeps" food (of course commenting to me how it just isn't the real thing). Thanks

    When my son and I go to Milwaukee Bucks games (NBA), this restaurant lies between where we park (near the Milwaukee School of Engineering) and the Bradley Center Arena.

    World-famous German heritage location - bring your stein or purchase an authentic German one there and have a beer on me!

    Take a look at the distinquished guests that have patronized this landmark restaurant - then add your names to the list.

    You will find parking just west of the restaurant, and a stroll along the river walk may also prove entertaining. Enjoy Maders!

    I hear Karl Ratzsch's is good for German with entrees in the $20-30 range. http://www.karlratzsch.com/

    If that's more than you care to spend, try Kegel's Inn. They've got plenty of choices for under $20. http://www.kegelsinn.com/

    for non-German food...
    burgers - Sobelman's: burgers in an old tavern, try the Sobelburger (3 kinds of cheese, bacon, grilled jalapenos & onions) (www.milwaukeesbestburgers.com)

    frozen custard - Kopp's (3 locations) vanilla, chocolate and flavor of the day - think Haagen-Daz but better! (www.kopps.com)

    fancy dress-up restaurant- Lake Park Bistro... beautiful Lake Michigan views, great food (www.lakeparkbistro.com)

    incredibly cheap, funky Mexican - Conejito's: a bar with cheap but tasty Mexican food (served on paper plates) You and a friend can eat/drink very well for under $20 total! (www.conejitos-place.com)

    If you're in town on a Friday, check out the classic Friday fish fry (a tradition in these parts) at Lakefront Brewery - including a polka band and get a tour of the brewery!!
    (www.lakefrontbrewery.com or for the fish fry: www.lakefrontpalmgarden.com)

    or a favorite for all the candidates for the Presidential office:
    American Serb Hall: but their fish fry is cod only, no perch or anything else
    (www.americanserbhall.com)


    hope these help! If you need other suggestions, you can always research dining and more at www.onmilwaukee.com

    Maders is fantastic. Whenever we ride to Kettle-Moraine we stop at Maders for dinner on the way back.

    Great food !!!
