isn't open on Sunday's. It is worth the trip imho.
If you boys have never had soul food before, a visit to Mr. Perkins
(reviewed here) is real treat. Warm and friendly it makes great breakfast stop. 2nd choice would be McBobs
and like BB I would recommend the eggs and corned beef hash; it's spectacular. I'd check all suggestions for hours of operation but I think you and your boys would positively enjoy Maria's Pizza
if it's open. Inexpensive and with only soft drinks available it's a treat to the eyes and your stomach. Milwaukee has two places off the beaten path on a river, The Horny Goat Brew Pub
and Barnacle Bud's
. While both are taverns with food, children are OK and they are unusual; ditto with the Safe House
( a spy themed restaurant). Of the 3, the food is best at Barnacle Buds. Three Brothers
is probably Milwaukee's most quaint and charming dining location but Ilija's Place
has far better Serbian food. Your other recs are great and I'll try to add some more. Will your sons try anything or do they prefer most 8 and 12 year old type foods?
