I am in Milwaukee for a week and a half for work and am looking for some good, reasonably priced recommendations. I'm open to anything from pizza/pasta to Thai and Indian. I'd prefer someplace low key where one wouldn't feel too weird eating alone. A place with a bar would be great! Specifically, I'm looking for a good pizza place (thin crust), a good sports bar, a diner and a good seafood place. I am staying in New Berlin but have a car and am open to exploring on the weekend. Weekday meals I would prefer to stay in the New Berlin or Brookfield areas. Thanks in advance for your help!
This is Mr. Shaja, and I work in New Berlin. A good sports bar in New Berlin is the New Berlin Ale House, near Moorland & Cleveland; everything I've eaten there is awesome, and if you get the chicken strips, the serving is so big you'll want to take some home. A good family diner is the Peachtree near Moorland and National Avenue; very friendly folks and great food. A good seafood place is Mitchell's Fish Market at the Brookfield Square Mall just north of I-94 off of, again, Moorland Rd.; yes, they're a chain, but they are good. I just ate at Bravo, just down the way from Mitchell's, and the salmon was cooked perfectly. I have no pizza recommendation at this time, but restaurants are generally good around here so it's hard to go wrong.
In the Brookfield/New Berlin area I'd recommend:
Wasabi - sushi - on the corner of Bluemound and Moorland
Lee's Cleveland Pub - sports bar - on the corner of Cleveland and Sunnyslope
Singha Thai - Hwy 100 and Lincoln - little hole in the wall strip mall place
The New Berlin Ale House is a fine place for a burger and watching some games.
Most of the other restaurants in the burbs are chains...predictable yet reliable.
Since you mentioned that you were looking for a good sports bar, Champp's on Moorland near I-94 is the best of the lot in the Brookfield/New Berlin area by far. I am not a big sports bar kind of person but whenever I go there I have fun and the food is better than the average sports bar.
