Great food with an energetic guide

All of the food was fantastic and the tour ended at one of my favorite restaurants. The tour took a little more than 2.5 hours but there wasn't a dull moment.

This trip was fantastic. We got to explore various neighbourhoods of the city while learning of some of it's rich drinking history. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the places we would attend. This tour is great for anyone, whether it's a date or out with a group of friends. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone.

I was looking for something different to do with my friends. The dinner and movie or shopping gets old. This was a fun way to get dinner at different places and learn about the history of the city. I had been to a few of the restaurants that were on the tour but had never eaten the dishes that were served during this tour. The portion sizes were pretty substantial and we were full at the end of the tour. Our guide - Robert - was very knowledgeable about the third ward and it was fascinating to learn about it. Overall, I would recommend it for a date night or a fun night out with your friends.

I did the 3rd ward food tour with my mom as a gift to her for Mothers Day and it was a personal tour for two! We were the only ones! Our tour guide Lee was fantastic and gave us some really interesting history of the city that neither one of us knew about. The stops were great, the food was delicious and the company was wonderful. We are already debating where and when our next tour should be. Thanks for a great evening out on the town! And keep Lee around, he's so charismatic! :)

Great tour!!

I would definitely recommend this tour. I went with my parents and my sisters for Mother's Day, and even though it was raining outside, we all still had a great time. I really enjoyed most of the restaurants and the history was very interesting. My sister had her children with her (3 y/o and 3 month old). We brought a stroller for the baby and it was a little tough getting in and out of some of the restaurants, so I wouldn't recommend bringing really small children on this tour. If you are not a Bloody Mary lover, I would still recommend this tour because they have a lot of alternatives (beer, mimosas, sangria, etc.) to choose from.

This was a great time for me and my husband. I surprised him for his birthday and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Although we had been to Classic Slice before, the other 3 were new and all places we will definitely consider going back to for more pizza!

Local review, not enough variety/flavor in food.

I'm a suburbanite who comes down to the third ward a couple times a year. The overall tour itself was good and the tour guide provided some interesting facts about the city and it's food history. The pace and size of the tour was good as well. The food on the tour left something to be desired.

We started out with a chicken noodle soup, which doesn't really stand for anything and kind of had us questioning what type of food tour it was going to be from the get-go. We moved on to a piece of margherita pizza, which was decent, but tasted average when comparing to other margherita pizzas I've had. Next we had a very good steak slider and a beer. This was probably the best "food" of the food tour. Next, we had a chicken shish-kabob with rice at a nice restaurant, but it lacked any memorable flavor. Lastly was a stop for a small scoop of whiskey ice cream, which was ok, but didn't really appeal to me or anyone in my group.

The tour itself moved at a comfortable pace and was informative to the history. It seemed like the restaurants had their most basic dishes prepared and just wanted to move us in and out. It would have been nice to get a 30 second presentation from each restaurant on the dish and why it was special to them. The fact that you couldn't say anything special about the preparation of the dishes served at 2-3 of the places (chicken noodle, pizza, chicken kabob) would cause me to not take a tour again.

Have been on several other of Milwaukee Food Tours, but this was the first time on the pizza tour. As usual, we had plenty of delicious food, an enthusiastic guide, and learned fun historical facts about Milwaukee and in particular, the various neighborhoods we went to for pizza. Highly recommend Milwaukee Food Tours to locals and visitors to the area.

Good, but some improvements needed
Sat, May 2  11:30 AM katiebb Female 50-59 Local Couple on a Date
The historical information was wonderful, our guide was very knowledgeable, and the restaurants served excellent food.

I would make a couple suggestions for improvements:

At two of the places (Glorioso's and some other place where we had an exquisite cannoli), we had to eat outside, which didn't leave a lasting impression of the establishment. I would suggest substituting other restaurants or giving us a goody bag to take with us.

At Glorioso's, we passed around toothpicks and had to spear olives and meats from a common container. As much as I liked the other people on the tour, I would rather have my own container. It just didn't give credit to the good food of Glorioso's to be hovering around a single table in a feeding frenzy.

At restaurants where we sat down, it would be nice to have the option of ordering a drink and making a little extra money for the restaurant.

There was no list of the restaurants we visited, so we can't remember the names of some of them to either return or recommend them to another person.
