Restaurants in Milwaukee

Culturally diverse and artistically inclined, Milwaukee is home to a thriving restaurant scene, ranging from chic, fusion cuisine-focused bistros to elegant fine dining establishments to cheap bohemian college cafes.

The only common theme the majority of these restaurants share is the time honored tradition of the Friday night fish fry. Hailing from the days where the Catholic no-meat-on-Fridays rule was still widely practiced, the act of eating fried fish on a Friday is one of defining cultural quirks of not only Milwaukee, but also the whole state of Wisconsin.

Another favorite staple of a Milwaukeeans diet is frozen custard, a most delectable treat that's worth trying at least once.
