Milwaukee Brunch Reviews
Located along Water Street a couple blocks north of City Hall, Water Street Brewery is on the corner that begins a track of drinking establishments. However, don't assume that this brew house is packed with college students. This restaurant offers some great microbrew beers and good food. Along one wall they have a collection of old beer cans. One can take a glimpse back through time at how beer cans and designs have evolved over time. In the main dining area, the Cream City brick walls are adorned with large, old black and white photos of some of Milwaukee's landmarks. Sitting there and looking around, one gets the sense of Milwaukee's importance as a brewery city.
My parents joined me for this brunch review again. They enjoyed reading the reviews and wanted to explore another Milwaukee restaurant's brunch. We chose Water Street Brewery because it was one of the first places we visited five years ago when I was looking for apartments. It was a great trip back down memory lane.
So, if you are looking for a great place to have an amazing meal with large portions of food and some Milwaukee brewing history on the side, make plans to have brunch at Water Street Brewery. For a total of about $16 per person, the brewery delivers on taste and portion. Located on Water Street and Highland, street parking is a little hard to find. Be prepared to walk to the restaurant.
Until next weekend, have a great week and happy brunching!
