Downtown Pizza

Awesome pizza and gluten free is the best I have had. They have a great ap that's super easy to use for ordering.
It's certainly not a fancy place, but the pizza was really tasty! When I ordered the personal pan pizza with pepperoni, besides having way too many "p's," I was a little surprised by the thinness of the crust. It tasted great, but, had I known it would be that thin, I might have ordered a larger pizza. It probably was for the best, however, as a larger pizza would probably also lead to a larger pizza eater. Without a doubt, I can stand to lose a pound, or two, or twenty, which is part of the reason I walked the approximately 3 miles from my hotel to Downtown Pizza, so the smaller pizza probably was the best choice. Another big plus for Downtown Pizza is that they have Dr Pepper. Hooray! Should I find myself in the area again, Downtown Pizza will certainly be one of my dinner stops.
Love the pizza here and amazing craft beer selection. A bit small and crowded for dining in but worth it.

Reviews:
Hands down our favorite restaurant in Ozaukee County! The food is always amazing, I don't think we've ever had a 'meh' dish here!! Here is what we usually order: brisket sandwich, pulled pork or chicken sandwich, reuben, burnt ends, chicken wings, nachos, kids mac and cheese, French fries, baked beans, dessert. The kids meals are great because they include a choice of side dish, drink and dessert and they are $6-7. All of this is always hands down amazing. The food there is literally addictive. The barbecue sauces are awesome. We have even ordered catered food, (like a bunch of food to take home and feed a group) and it was very well done. Our guests enjoyed it. It's a very clean restaurant with friendly service. The service is attentive and prompt. I would eat there every day if I could ;)
Great place! Nice interior with delicious food. I wish it was closer to my home! The burnt ends were delicious. I had one bad piece that was just WAY too fatty, but that was just one out of 8 or so that I ate. I'd get those again in a heartbeat. Another highlight was the macaroni and cheese. I wasn't expecting this to be that great, but boy was I pleasantly surprised. Great creamy texture and flavor. I also loved the brussel sprouts. Low-lights? The wings tasted great but were not cut and therefore very difficult to eat. I wouldn't get them again just based on how difficult they were to eat, but that bleu cheese that accompanied them sure was tasty. If you don't mind the trouble and mess, I recommend these. Another low-light is the Atlas vinegar slaw. It was bland and flavorless - probably the worst thing I ate. Not terrible by any means... it just paled in comparison to everything else. The dessert menu looked incredible, but we were just too full. I'm glad my sister bought a house in Cedarburg, because I have a new BBQ place in the area to visit over and over again.
Hmmm, seems like I always have to preface my BBQ reviews with "I'm from Texas so...." I'm from Texas so my view of BBQ is slightly biased but I try to remain impartial. BBQ had a nice rub but not much crust/bark. Must be using commercial smokers because there wasn't a lot of smokiness imparted to the meat. Pork ribs were tender and stripped off the bone cleanly. Brisket...Hmmmm, if you're gonna cut a slice like that it better be moist and tender. I even asked for a cut off the point to ensure it would be moist....but I don't think they distinguish between the point/flap. This is probably more of a Texas thing where we choose between one cut or another. Several sauces to choose from...KC was a favorite. Sides were A-OK.

Big Apple Bagel

1961 Wisconsin Ave

Reviews:
After driving by several times a colleague recommended to stop in. The place is in a strip mall next to the auto parts store, which is a little strange. The bagels were nice and had a good selection. The staff was alright yet nothing over the top. A limited selection of bagels and creams compared to other bagel chains. Work stopping by if in the area yet nothing for a special trip.
Wonderful place! Their bagel sandwiches are awesome and the owner/manager is super attentive and very gracious! It's rare you receive great service like this these days. I've visited there several times now and I'll always highly recommend. Go there!
The friendly and attentive staff (especially the manager) are nice to everyone; they must get many regulars because of this. As a vegetarian I like how much they let me customize my order. They also bring your food and coffee directly to you when they could just shout from the counter. Coffee drinks are nice and strong!

Let me break this 3-star review down for you... 0-stars awarded for them not having Pumpkin Spice Lattes... apparently they "ran out of mix" and the only Starbucks that "may have some left is in Potowatamee"??? Where the F is Patowatamee?!?!?! 5-stars for the cashier, Brett, for a) recognizing I was out of town; must have been the bright orange Michael Kors jacket, and for b) suggesting that I cheat on the PSL with a Carmel Brulee Latte. Now, on a normal day I would have just scoffed the thought of a Carmel Brulee Latte off. However, Since the folk in WI are so nice it was hard to say "no" to Brett and his suggestion so, I went for it... It was moderate- nothing spectacular and I would suggest a name more along the lines of "Burnt Brulee Latte" since there was a strong hint of burnt sugar- but that's just me. All-in-all the service was great, but since i'm a sucker for a PSL and they were fresh out unless I wanted to road trip to Patowatamee I was SOL so... 3-stars it is. For my annual visit next year, stock up on PSL mix and then we'll talk.
Friendly staff! Easy access from 43. Its Starbucks. The staff is friendly. the coffee is good. The drive thru is wonderful. I'll be back! (said in a Terminator voice)
Plenty of parking and seating at this location. I was pleased with my experience. Nothing special, but no complaints! Keep it up. Try the iced green tea.

Juice’s Ghost Town

Reviews:
This place is a very unassuming restaurant. Looks like a dive bar from the front but the menu is top notch. The French onion soup was awesome and our meals, salmon Oscar and NY strip, were fantastic. We have the Packer game on TV, good food, good drink.... What more could a girl ask for?
We were so excited to try this place!! Then we ate there. There was a bit of wait but nothing you wouldn't expect on a Friday night. The vibe is super old school and by 6:15 it's packed with people that seem to have been going there for 50 years...with each plate that passed we were more and more excited to finally get sat and taste it! Drinks: it's Wisconsin so we got an old fashion...they don't make good old fashions. This is a place that looks like it should and with a average age of 70 you'd assume they would! Maybe we just got a bad one? We didn't want to risk it for a second one. Fish Fry: sigh. It LOOKED sooooo good. Unfortunately what came out was 1/2 undercooked (almost raw in middle) and the other pieces had no flavor. We had ordered the beer battered haddock so I can't speak to the other items. When we told them the fish (on all 3 orders) wasn't cooked...they said no one else had an issue, took it, then still charged us full price for inedible food - without so much as an apology other than "sorry you didn't like your food" On a plus side the kids grilled cheese was awesome!
Ran out for a last minute dinner and glad we stopped here. Was only looking for soup and sandwich but I'm I glad I settled for the queen cut prime rib. Cooked perfectly, extremely tender and tasty. Wife had the salmon Oscar and again very well prepared and tasted great. Wait staff was very cordial and attentive.

Solid food, great price!
I like this place because its fast and the food is the best in the Grafton\Cedarburg area.
A pretty good Chinese place. The food there is decent. I normally get the sesame chicken with fried rice. The chicken is good but the fried rice seems a bit bland. The buffet is lacking in selction and a lot of times the food does not come out quick enough. Be warned if you call in an order they may mess it up. A few times when I order their la main they have given me fried rice instead, smart to check if it is right in the car. This place is good if you are in the area and looking for Chinese. The food is constantly good but nothing special.

Qdoba Mexican Grill

2506 Washington St

Reviews:
When I used to live here a few years ago, I would visit weekly to get my taco salad fix. So much so that I swear the employees knew me. This was 2 years ago. Our most recent visit was not so spectacular. We came in a few weeks ago on a Friday night and the place was PACKED. They've changed their menu around a bit since the last time we were in town, so it took my husband a few minutes to order. The employees, who seemed like local teenagers, were rushing to make all the orders. There were 2 people making the food and 1 girl on the register. Some of the employees clearly seemed new, because when my husband asked for the majority of the smoky chipotle cream to be put into his smothered burrito and not so much on top of it, the employee said "No." Flat out. I realize this is Qdoba, not Burger King, but I doubt it'd kill them to make the food the way the customer asks. I have a feeling this may have had something to do with the dictator of a manager that may have scared the employees with his potential wrath.. Speaking of, during this chaotic dinner rush, the manager stood behind the employees, barking orders. He began yelling at the girl on the register to take over food line duty just as we were about to pay. So I awkwardly stood there, waiting for someone to ring me up. Here's a suggestion for management: if the place is busy, don't bark orders to the employees. Perhaps it would be more efficient to stop standing around, dictating and help them? I felt bad for these kids. Customer service jobs are hard enough as it is, having a jerk for a manager just makes it worse. In fact, because of this guy trying to rush his employees, we left feeling very rushed, as well. On the bright side, guacamole is now offered free of charge on everything.
This is one of the places my husband likes to stop on his way home for fast food. Service is usually fast, and you can select the items you want in your tacos, taco salad, quesadillas, etc. One caveat...if you're going for takeout, check your order before you leave. Just yesterday, we stopped there for takeout quesadillas, taco salad, tortilla soup, and nachos. Got home to find there was no guacamole with the quesadillas, no tortillas with the tortilla soup, and no salsa or sour cream whatsoever.
Fast service and pretty good food with good portion sizes. Much better than the other places around to eat.

Culver’s

Reviews:
I have not been to this Culver's though I'm sure it's clean and friendly - I like the one in Mequon near I-43 & in Sheboygan near 42, but somebody wrote a bad review for Culver's here because they think it hurts my wallet, and it's killing my unborn children, and I'm going to die also soon because of it. Whatever you like food Nazi! I'm sorry but it's a well known home remedy if you eat greasey food you should grip some booze; likewise, if you drank lots of alcohol the night before, you damn well better get yourself to Culver's for a bacon double deluxe! Now YOU know better, and knowing is half the battle... the more you know - bah! If you were wondering, it's actually that learning is half the battle... the more you grow! Culver's root beer is also the shit too!
I just don't understand why I can't order something, pay for it, and have it end up in the bag they hand me. It's not complicated. I ask for chicken tenders, fries, and onion rings. I pay for chicken tenders, fries, and onion rings. I get home and no fries. Other trips I ask for buffalo style tenders, get regular style. Twice. Why is it so hard? Today is the last straw. No more Culver's EVER. There are other options where they take your money and give you what you asked for.
picked up a to go order. Staff at the counter was all over it.....kitchen staff was clueless and I had to wait much too long. I'll go to A different Location next time

I eat here 2 times a week. Great portion, great pricing, great taste.
This is one of these small plastic fork and knife places that always seem to be tucked into strip malls, but that being said the food here is good and the lunch specials are good value for your money. Limited seating inside, and no buffet unfortunately, but the dishes I've had so far (General Tso's Chicken, Kung Po Chicken) have been good. Not terribly innovative or dazzling, but good solid lunch fare. If you are after a quick type of meal, and looking for an inexpensive alternative to the fast food places, this is a good choice. Service is friendly and prompt, place is clean. And chopsticks are available! hours - m-th 11 am - 10pm f- sa - 11am - 11pm sun - 12 noon 10pm
The place was very dirty that we were even wondering not to get the take out.. but since it was late we went ahead to try. We ordered the combination fried rice for dinner takeout. There is absolutely no taste! Was the worst ever fried rice we have ever tried out and we eat A LOT of fried rice from all over. I can definitely say that the fried rice from dragon gourmet in Grafton was actually much better than this. I hope a good thai or chinese place opens up soon in Grafton. Till then Mequon it is.

Flannery’s Restaurant At Fire Ridge

2241 County I
Grafton, 53024
Reviews:
5 - Star Burgers! Seriously mouth watering 1/2lb patties of delicious angus beef cooked to your liking (medium rare is truly pink and delicious with hints of medium gray at the edges)! Steaks, prime rib (Saturday), and fish are all great, but not quite 5 stars so it gets 4. Still, all you can eat crab legs on Thursday nights are fantastic but they'll set you back a bit.
Yummy bloody mary, excellent tenderloin medalions, and great pasta. Service was good and fast. Only thing that could have been better was the cajun flavored pasta ..not really cajun or any spice. Reasonable prices and a nice kids menu. I really liked the variety of choices on the menu but the menu was hard to read.
Had no idea this was related to the Flannery's in downtown Milwaukee, but now it makes a lot of sense. Great place to stop in after a round of golf. The new Bloody Mary Menu is AMAZING! Full review at outforbloodies.com .
