The history of Mader's, Milwaukee's most famous restaurant

While there are a number of landmark Milwaukee restaurants, there is perhaps no restaurant that says "Brew City" more than Mader's, 1041 N. Old World 3rd St. One that dates back to 1902.

    Thanks for the information.My dad lived in Milwaukee.the family moved back there during the great depression from Hot Springs,Ark.Had moved there to run some stores greta grandpa had there  when he became ill. Anyhow, once in a great while the family might go to eat there, but not too often, as both my grandparents were german, and of course grandma made a lot of this kind of food.

    Given that Mader's opens at 11:30 on Saturdays, I should make an effort to finally get there.

    If only for a beer at the bar. The Spice House is next door and Usinger's is across the street.

    In other words, bring cash and a cooler.
     
    I may work up some initiative and make the trip as soon as this coming Saturday.

    Perfect day! Finish it off with Matt Lapay calling the Badgers-Hawkeyes on the drive home.
