Cosy Eatery. I travel extensively with my job to London//LA/New York etc and get to eat at the best restaurants. However, I find this restaurant so charming to visit upon my return. The food is comforting and hearty, the atmosphere is cosy and unpretentious. Yes the service can seem frosty at times - being european it seems pretty normal to me - and yes, the house wine is unlabelled, but it is reasonable and tastes just fine. The beef goulash is delicious as is the burek and the stuffed grape leaves. I have always managed to get a table regardless of whether I have booked and whether the restaurant is full or not. If you like your service sickly sweet and think you know about wine then maybe this place isn't for you. If you feel like trying something that has character and soul then you've found a place to go.
Authentic food, pleasant atmosphere...
Something really distinguished, explosion of flavors....
Homemade soups that taste nothing like you had before, they are meals in themselves
Cakes and cookies tastiest on planet!
Old-fashioned roast lamb, stuffed veal, Hungarian goulash and moussaka served in an old tavern building..
This century-old former Schlitz Company tavern bears witness to the vow made by a family separated in the horrors of World War II: to someday reunite and open a restaurant in America. The dining room is a time warp to the past: The simple Formica tables, mismatched china and upbeat music take you back at least five decades--the perfect backdrop for the timeless recipes coming out of the tiny kitchen.
Roast lamb, stuffed veal, roast suckling pig, Hungarian goulash and moussaka are just like Mama used to make because Mama is still making them. Be sure to sample the burek, a three-inch, golden-brown, plate-sized pastry of phyllo dough layered with your choice of cheese, spinach or ground beef.
Mrs. Donna Langham. My husband and tried going to this restaurant. The restaurant was absolutely empty and we were told we could not get a table because we did not have reservations made. I understand the place might get busy, but I would have thought they could have given us a table, especially because it was completely empty when we arrived. I would not recommend this place to anyone no matter how wonderful the food might be. I live and work in Bay View and try to visit all the local businesses.
very special. I have to agree with the other reviewers, this is a wonderful place and not only for the food. The owner is a charming and graceful man who does not neglect any guest and personally sees to his comfort while his family serves him their delicious platters. My only regret is that I could not order more, because the menu is large and many dishes sounded wonderful to me. Desserts were wonderful, and not in the American way (which is not to my taste), more is better. Instead they are barely sweet and a wonderful punctuation to a lovely meal. The strudel was the best I have ever had. I will surely return if I am in Milwaukee again.
one of our first dates was to this place. If you want modern and fancy, don't go here. If you like great Serbian food, personal service and a restaurant with character, this place cannot be missed. We have yet to find a menu item we don't like. And you must try the Serbian salad (tomatos, peppers, onions and feta cheese in an oil and vinegar dressing).
