This place was very quiet with not many people, so it made it kind of intimate for the two of us. The food was good, but nothing out of the ordinary, but I would eat there again due to the atmospher. We didn't try any...More

Enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service. I noticed others complained about the service but I had no problems. I particularly enjoyed the super nachos as an appetizer.

The options are far better than most brew pubs. Salads, burgers, fish, sausages and pizza. The cheese curds are the best I have ever tasted. Service was adequate not slow or pushy, just provided everything as requested. The Irish Stout is very good.

We enjoyed Sunday Brunch before a 2:00 show at the Rep. We went with the Specials: Root Beer Donuts--yummy dipping sauce--and Brewmasters Breakfasts. The bloody was loaded with goodies, and I discovered a Beermosa made with OJ. Recommend this option near The Rep.

Great beer selections. They have several different flights or you can get the old fashioned Milwaukee beer mug with a handle! Very friendly staff. Huge selection. Not far from the river walk

Da wife and I drove up from Columbus, Ohio to Milwaukee for their excellent Irish Festival. We ran into Water Street Brewery’s building there. Fun place! Liked the second floor area with Jamison being freely poured! Good time!

Definitely worth a visit, they have a fun space in a historical building that's well preserved as well as a large menu with great prices. Speaking of great prices, you can get a flight of eight beers for $9, I've never seen prices that low....More
