Marx’s Pioneer Inn

Reviews:
My friend is the fair bar maiden at the tiki bar on Thursday nights. I have to note that was my one reason for commuting to Muskego. I would not have otherwise happened upon this converted house. I did not visit the bar indoors, but there may be a future visit, at least during volleyball season. I was not sure what the quality of food would be at this "dive bar," but I was happily surprised. We ordered a large sausage and jalapeno pizza. On Thursday nights, the special is $4 off a large pizza. All told, our pizza came to $18. So, it was a little pricey for a two-topping pizza, but it was well worth it. The crust was paper thin, which I enjoy. I do not like to get full on an overabundance of dough. The cheese was the perfect ratio to crust and sauce. The sauce had a slight sweetness, and countered the kick from the jalapeno slices. The sausages appeared handmade and were generously dispersed on the pie. They were meaty and had a touch of spice. All of the ingredients made for a good pizza, and it was baked to well done without being burned. Kudos for conquering the thin crust. If we return for a Thursday volleyball night, we will check out the indoors. I should also venture to other items on the menu, but I feel the pizza may be their star.
Maybe I shouldn't be so generous with the 5 star rating, but it was just a burger. Very tasty and juicy, good fries, as well. Fish and potato pancakes were reported to be very good, excellent service, and that great fried food smell lets you know you're in a Wisconsin bar / restaurant.
It isn't too often that you go to a place and feel like it's just the right fit, but that's what Marx is for me. It's good old fashioned comfort food done right, big portions, and reasonable prices. I have had about half of the stuff on the menu from the burgers to the pizza, and have never been disappointed. All of this from a guy who has been in the bar/restaurant business since he was a kid. I think that this place is ready to be the next big thing, stop in and become a regular now before it's too late!

Alpine Lanes of Muskego

Reviews:
I love this place. It is half bowling ally half bar/grill. The bowling half is wonderful. The lanes and balls and shoes are all very well up kept and no worries of smells or the things you get from run down allys. The grill side has a HUGE selection of food an beer. The pizza is delicious and can be made for all diet (no cheese, no meat, ect). One of my fav pizza places in Muskego. Great thin crust. But the salsa and chips are insanely spicy and were very hard to enjoy.
Food is really good. Would like to see some micro brews, but will be back for the food. Also, had lots of easy to view TVs. Seems like a decent spot to watch a sports event.
This is THE BEST place for pizza in Muskego. Actually, I think it's the best pizza I've ever had. Don't go anywhere else. Get a large pizza with pepperoni bacon and onion and you won't be disappointed. I promise.

San Laurio Coffee

Reviews:
My fiancé and I come here every Sunday! It is such a friendly and relaxing environment with the best coffee and delicious treats!
The coffee is excellent. My husband, the coffee snob, claims he can't get a better espresso anywhere in the area. The staff is friendly and make you feel welcome. It's truly a great local coffee shop.
I love and appreciate good, local coffee roasters. San Laurio serves Colectivo and Anodyne coffees, both Milwaukee companies. The atmosphere is nice, it's usually quiet, and perfect for studying/reading! Glad to have them here in Muskego!

Mugzs Pub & Grill

Reviews:
Food is good. After that, out in the country type bars should have three things. Affordable drinks, cheap nosh specials, and bartenders who can give ribbing as well as they can take them. The cheap nosh has taken a hit the last couple years at Mug-Z's, but they've kept up in the other categories, so it's an enjoyable place to stop. Just two years ago the specials were special. For instance 25 cent drummies and shrimp had a couple of weekly appearances. Last year things started rising, and now the food specials aren't that special, it's on couple occasions you can get different food. The cheap nosh is made up though for many by the drink special of free bloodies for an hour weekend mornings. Yes weekends, including pre-Packer games and races! Other drink specials keep the regulars happy for much of the week. The generally hustling servers with sass also excel at keeping the regulars happy. More on the food: those currently 50 cent drummies are as good as normal bars get. Important to me is they'ren't wings. On occasion they serve mutant drummies of enormous size, feels like a great nosh deal again if you are so lucky. The $5 nachos on Wednesdays are a big plateful good deal if you're into dairy loaded nachos. I get three tacos instead as a spicy filler-upper. I like how they cook they're burgers too. With cheap drinks I'm not looking for bloody beef, instead they fully grill on some nice flavor. I get the Mug-Z's Double Dip (two 1/3rd pound patties, why so named nobody seems to know) and swap out the cheese for bacon. With mushrooms plus hot and BBQ sauce it's a mini tower of taste.

The Suburban Bourbon

S76W17745 Janesville Rd

Reviews:
We took a chance and tried a new place for a fish fry and were very pleasantly surprised. We were greeted at the door by who I can only assume was the owner with a genuine smile and it made you feel very welcome. We sat at the bar and ordered 2 beers that we hadn't had before and loved them! A peach Hefeweizen and a Kentucky bourbon ale. Delish! If you are into bourbons they have a huge selection. Also the craft beer selection was great. We ordered the fish frys. One breaded and one beer battered. We both actually preferred the beer battered which is different for us. Both were great. The only critique I can offer was the coleslaw was boring. No flavor at all. Service was great although they were slow due to Muskegos first football game. We will be back!
Great food and and service. We ordered bacon wrapped meatloaf, turkey burger, A lone star burger, and a Greek salad with chicken. Everything was fresh and delicious and my son ordered a second side salad because the balsamic dressing was out of this world! All five of us said we would go back in a heartbeat. Superclean, friendly staff and would highly recommend. The only thing that I don't understand, is why there weren't more people there?!
Great atmosphere for such an unassuming place! Didn't eat but we definitely must. Cocktails and high end bourbon selection is excellent.

King’s Wok

Reviews:
Ok... I love this place and crave it all the time. It's very cl I se to my house, so they know my voice when I call and the know my typical orders. My favorites are everything, but tell them to make it spicy. It adds just a little kick to throw the taste over the top!
I moved here about 5 years ago, their food has been tasty and comes with huge portion. Americanized Chinese that tastes great. My regular menus are steamed dumplings, shrimp chow mai fun, shrimp with Chinese vegetables and general Tso's chicken, I also love the seafood delight but haven't ordered it since the price increased--everything's good here.
Don't know why I even tried this place again except I was so hungry for Chinese food and there is nothing else in Muskego. Shrimp Lo Mein was extremely bland and tasteless as was the pork fried rice. The egg rolls were bagged without anything to absorb part of the oil, so they literally dripped grease. Took one little nibble and thought better of it. Guess I'll still be waiting to get some good or at least edible Chinese food.

Great pizza and garlic bread. Very reasonable prices. You will love it
I like the EBA (everything but anchovies) pizza and the lasagne is great. While the atmosphere is a bit dated, the food makes is well worth the stop.

Hunter’s Nest

S80W14401 Schultz Ln
Muskego, 53150
Reviews:
The Hunters Nest is located pretty much at the end of Schultz Lane in Muskego. The gravel parking lot is enormous but it's shared with the trap shooting club and there is also a boat launch. For $5 you can launch right into the channel that leads to Big Muskego lake, and leave your vehicle and trailers parked in the lot. The bar/restaurant itself is quite large inside and probably hopping on Friday for fish fry. We went on a Thursday and it was busier than I had anticipated with a steady stream of regulars passing through. The dining area is a distinct space that is separate from the bar. We ordered food and chose to sit at the bar, and as a bonus there was a nice view of the channel and outdoor seating area. I got the feeling that this place is cash only. I didn't see anyone paying with a card nor did I see a machine behind the bar. In fact, the register itself looked to be from 1940. I saw an ATM near the entrance so that's convenient. The same goes for the dining area. I noticed that everyone who paid for meals used cash instead of credit. For the food itself, there was a good selection of appetizers and sandwiches. Pizza is also available as well as some other main dishes. The prices were very fair for what is offered. We went with a 14" Franco special pizza and were not disappointed. It was well cooked and tasted great, for less than $15. Most of the sandwiches were between $7 and $9. I enjoyed this place, but it is dated and the bartender was kind of inattentive toward us. I felt that she catered more towards the regulars which made me feel like a burden on her. I would rate this place one star higher if she had paid as much attention to us as our waitress did- especially since we were seated at the bar.

Bushy’s

14831 Janesville Rd
Muskego, 53150
Reviews:
The only reason the place gets a star is because the building they are in is nice. What can I say, my burger tasted like a food service burger from high school, the beers were warm and flat, service was incredibly slow even though we were the only ones ordering food. It's a shame because it's a nice location. Try Mattys or Bosh instead.
Bushy's is a good old Wisconsin pub & grill. I've been coming here for 10 years and I'm always pleased. Great Friday fish fries too. My wife & I often order baked fish, which is excellent, for a good price. The deep-fried fish and seafood are also delicious, again, very reasonably priced. The service is outstanding, waitresses always pleasant.
I'm going to be completely honest, and this is my personal review, not hearsay. I'm finally free to write this review without backlash. I've been going to this place for years, and honestly, the only thing I ever got to eat was the grilled cheese, which was pretty good, because they used sourdough, and I could get cheddar. But, now that I've tried other things, I'm gunna say, I'm not impressed. The "fresh" stuff they claim to have is all frozen. The hot dog...I got a hot dog with cheese, and it came on this gigantic, overly-bready bun, and the cheese??? THEY PUT TWO HALF-SLICES OF KRAFT AMERICAN SINGLES ON IT! We live in wisconsin, and you put the worst, fake cheese on a hot dog? The woman owner actually told some customer off once while I was in there during a football game, because he yelled "shut up!" because her microphone was making us all deaf with the feedback. I have seen her yell at her staff in front of customers. And I know that she lies on the menu about the fresh food. This place could use a bar rescue. I am pretty privy to the muskego gossip, and none of the younger families like to go there, because the food is horrible, and the owner is well known throughout the city as being a complete snot. The brother is known as being pretty nice. When your customers hear the word "fag" come out of one of the owner's mouths, that is an issue. You do not know who on your staff or which of your customers can take offense to that. Also, why the hell do the mac and cheese bites have queso in them? Those were the worst mac and cheese bites I've ever had. It was a surprise. Like, they ran out of the bag of regular ones, then mixed it together with the spicy ones. One had normal cheese, the next would have jalapeños or something spicy in it. Gross. I think they need to just accept that they are a bar, not some fine dining restaurant, like they try to claim. We all know that the fish fry is not fresh, and those are NOT home made potato pancakes. Liars. If you go there to drink, the price of beer is alright. But the food is really subpar. The staff is nice, and if you are nice to them, you should have a good experience (that is really the case anywhere).
