Top 20 Restaurants in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Yelp Releases Milwaukee’s Top 20 Restaurants – May 2016

There’s no denying it, the Milwaukee food scene is absolutely lit these days. Yelp’s a trusted, go-to guide for the people, by the people… great for both locals and visitors alike to discover the best hidden (and not-so-hidden) restaurants in Brew City.

For the first time ever we’re releasing our Top 20 Restaurants in Milwaukee!

From the high-end and well-known (Bacchus and Sanford) to African eats on the East Side (Blue Star Café), burgers on Pierce Street (Oscar’s), an old school Milwaukee steakhouse (Five O’Clock Steakhouse) and so much more, this list is as diverse as it is interesting. There’s something for everyone, representing varied types of restaurants in different parts of town. So get on Yelp and start bookmarking!

To calculate the Top 20, Yelp’s data scientists used a technique based on the Wilson Score to compile a list of the highest-rated restaurants. This method takes into account both overall star rating and number of reviews to reveal the Milwaukee restaurants with top notch ratings that are most loved by locals.
