Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 421reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by The service we had was very poor. Waitress was slow to bring drinks. We had to ask numerous times for our bill. We got very little attention for the money we spent Apr 23, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by It was only 6pm and they were out of Lemonade. The new waitress forgot our Ceasar salad, and staff looked overwhelmed tonight. No thought into kids eating there, no crayons, things to draw on, or even cups with lids. Food was good though. Apr 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by we all had the fish fry and both the fried and baked were awesome Apr 4, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by This restaurant is a great find and we might not have ever visited had it not been for! I don't usually take the time to write a review, but this place deserves it.It has a nice atmosphere and EXCELLENT food. I had a full rack of ribs with Jack Daniel's sauce. Delicious! Perfect. My wife had one of the Chef's specialties, 'Crusted Chicken Breast'. It was exceptional. The chicken dish was perhaps the best such preparation I've ever tasted.Dinners came with choice of potatoes and we both chose 'sautéed garlic herb fingerlings'. Good choice! All options come with a large quantity of really good fresh green beans. Our dinner salads were great too. Beyond the usual fare.Service was also great. Our server was prompt, polite and well-versed in the menu. From him I learned that the same family has run this place for years. If you're from Milwaukee, you'll quite possibly recognize the name Rupena. Yes, the one with the meat market on the south side, and the long-successful stand at the Wisconsin State Fair. That explains the quality of our meat and they obviously care about the quality of the rest of their menu items too.Cork N Cleaver is a great find. I'm already thinking about when we'll return. But should we stay with the same entree's or try something new? Mar 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My wife had the prime rib special. I had the pan fried walleye special. Both were excellent. Sharon provided her usual excellent service. Mar 16, 2015
