It has been a long time since we’ve been to That’s Amore and after this last visit I don’t know why we have waited so long to revisit them. In the probably 15 years since our last visit the interior hasn’t changed all that much — Dean Martin is still the star on the walls — but my impression of the food has taken a huge leap forward.

With an ample menu and daily specials there is a lot to choose from. Prices are appropriate for a popular Milwaukee Suburban restaurant. This isn’t NYC and it isn’t some little hick town — the prices are right where they should be; the service was excellent; and the food was outstanding.

From salad to entree the dishes were well presented & tasty. The salad was chilled — no warm lettuce drenched in cold dressing. Our entrees (one special and one main menu choice) arrive hot, well seasoned (neither overly seasoned nor bland), and enough for a grown man’s appetite. The wine list is adequate and our brandy old fashioned were just right.

I’m sure we’ll be back sooner rather than later.

I recently visited Green Tea Gardens Chinese restaurant for dinner in Franklin, Wisconsin, with friends. The atmosphere is beautifully decorated. Their menu has a wide assortment of Chinese cuisine. The staff was friendly and suggested entrees. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. I had an eggroll for an appetizer and Moo Shu Pork for my entree. The portions are huge.I had enough for another meal. I will definitely dine again. This restaurant is huge and great for large groups. Parking plentiful since it is located in a shopping center.

Joey Gerard's

Take a step back in time at Joey Gerard's, a Hollywood-style supper club that features traditional, time-tested menu offerings, nightly specials, and classic cocktails and ice cream drinks. Steaks, chops and seafood are cooked in the Midwest's first Josper charcoal ovens, giving them a perfectly seared outside and a succulent, juicy inside. The restaurant serves up a warm, nostalgic vibe with its dark leather booths, period light fixtures and walls covered in black and white photos of celebrities enjoying the supper club experience in the 1950s and '60s.

Was fortunate to get a reservation on a Saturday evening in the holiday season. But when we arrived we were seated promptly and on time. We enjoy the ambience of the place and generally it’s a perfect place for a quiet dinner... but this night the place was bustling and quite loud. Still that didn’t distract from the methodical service and food delivery.
Wine selection was excellent and evening specials were explained.
Kid dishes were available for our two grandkids and they are the best values in the place. We all ordered steaks which met the expectations but were served only warm but savory. I do think two of us had steaks that were over cooked but not to a point of disappointment. Portion size was filling.
Our server was there when we needed but not overbearing.
We’d go back.

Stopped for Matty Burgers on Friday night. Despite it being "fish night," we had excellent burgers. I had a version of the Hangover burger and my wife had a traditional mushroom swiss burger. Everything was very good. Noticed that the pricing for the burgers and the Friday Night Fish Fry specials had some inflation since the last time we had visited. Still very good but keep an eye on the prices. I might have opted for fish on this visit had the pricing been more reasonable. Cannot justify the fish specials pricing.

Kopp's Frozen Custard

Reviewed By TSorren - Chatsworth, CA

We hit Kopp’s for burgers and custard every time we come back to the Milwaukee area from Southern California and it doesn’t disappoint!
Been visiting Kopp’s on and off for over 30 years and it’s amazing how the burgers and custard still taste the same after all these years!
It feels like we’ve made it back home when we see the Kopp’s sign and walk in to see everyone in their white uniforms with white paper hats!!When in the Milwaukee area Kopp’s is a must stop for anyone who enjoys this type of food!!
How I wish there was a Kopp’s in the greater Los Angeles area...yes, we have mail ordered Kopp’s a few times over the years!!!

The Hale House

Reviewed By Rodger R

Caribbean Chicken Dip was delicious appetizer. Son had Meatloaf and was satisfied, wife had Spicy Garlic chicken wings and I had the Blue Burger (medium rare) and all came to the table exactly as advertised. Reasonably fast, great taste, fresh selections of green beans for the son, and we had good local "micro" craft brews. A good night celebration of my birthday and was very pleased

At Milwaukee Burger Co. we believe in quality first and foremost. We aren't your every day burger joint with frozen patties and frozen french fries. We bring in fresh angus beef and hand patty it ourselves every day. We bring in the best Idaho Potatoes and cut our own French Fries.

You can really taste our commitment to the freshest and best ingredients when you have a burger from Milwaukee Burger Co. We hope you come in, roll up your sleeves, and enjoy a fresh burger on a fresh baked bun with piping hot fresh cut french fries!

Bass Bay Brewhouse

Reviewed By Love2Ctheworld1117 - Wisconsin, US

After many visits, the first one soon after they re-opened under the new name "Bass Bay Brewhouse", I wish I could give it a better rating. What prompted me to write this review is , after our high school daughter went there with 11 other friends for homecoming dinner before their dance. It was the same night as another schools homecoming (neighboring cities to Muskego), and there was also a wedding that same night in the Aud Mar. Out of 12 young adults, 8 of them ordered their mac & cheese, and all but one came out warm with a cold center. The restaurant was so busy, they couldn't even return their cold dishes to get them warmed up, besides the fact they didn't have a lot of time to waste before their dance. These young adults don't have oodles of cash to waste, but yet each couple spent on average $60 per couple. That was almost a $400.00 table for the restaurant-!
Our previous visits, the food was average or a little above average. Nothing "wowed" us that I could even remember one dish that was great.
The restaurant is very loud, they need to soften up the interior to absorb all the noise. You have to talk to your friends/family louder if you want to have a conversation. I write this review hoping that he restaurant can improve on this.
We've also noticed young, inexperienced staff, so if it's busy, prepare to wait.

Ann's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Joseph P - Milwaukee, Wisconsin

We only do take out here so I can't speak completely on service but the staff is always friendly. Any food we have gotten is delicious. Ingredients are always fresh tasting. A little pricier than my other pizza place but it's worth it for the ingredients. Only downfall - no delivery. :(
