Three Brothers

2414 S St Clair St, Milwaukee, WI - (414) 481-7530

Recently several Roadfood.com members met at Three Brothers for dinner. Everything is still as described in Michael Stern's original review. The food is outstanding. Selections from the menu include roast lamb shank, stuffed grape leaves, bureks, musaka, Wiener schnitzel and Serbian salad and hors d'oeuvres. The service is very friendly and "familyish." Branko Radiecevich, the 80 year old owner, and his family maintain the reputation for fine service that has made Three Brothers a very popular place for an encounter with "Old World Style" dining. Full bar service is available.

The most popular of the dishes selected by our party was the burek. A crusty pastry shell is filled with your choice of cheese, beef, or a spinach-cheese mixture. This is a rich and very filling entree. Three of our party selected the spinach and cheese version. Custom made for each order, it takes some time to bake, but the results are certainly worth the wait. Over two inches thick, the appearance and aroma drew positive comments as they came from the kitchen. The burek is as good to eat as it is beautiful. All three of us had leftovers to take home at the end of the night.

The incredibly tender roast lamb was a big hit with my girlfriend.  The sweet and tart sauerkraut was a big hit with me!

A simple salad containing cheese, green peppers, onions, and tomatoes, this is a refreshing way to start your meal.

For many customers, Three Brothers is a place to celebrate special occasions; other people come to dine quietly on old-world comfort food.

The building that houses Three Brothers is what used to be a typical corner tavern.  Today is is an extraordinary dining destination.  Note the Schlitz globe atop the roof.

Available with cheese, beef, or spinach and cheese fillings.  Several of our party selected the spinach and cheese burek and raved about it.  They all took some of this wonderful pastry/entree home that evening.

Grape leaves stuffed with beef and rice, served with white wine sauce and potato dumplings, remind us of Greek cuisine.

Branko Radiecevich, the 80 year old Patriarch of the family, oversees the work of his family members in all parts of the restaurant, and he greets guests each night.  His family history is a very interesting and dramatic story.

The restaurant takes on a new appearance in the evening.  The brewery ads fade out and the family ambience seems to grow as you enter.
