Stopped in Friday pm at happy hour pricing. Not many folks in the place yet. Beautiful place, in the national historic register. Really nice interior and exterior. Good tap list with US micros and some internationals. Must stop for beer drinkers IMO.

Only been once during MKE beer week for KBS draft release. I enjoyed my brief visit there and tap list at the time was epic. Iím not sure about the regular tap list. The bartender was super friendly. I will be back next time Iím in the area.

25 tap lines and a food menu are enough to make me frequent this close to home place often. The beer list has something for everyone and they use the 25 tap lines well. Old wooden dťcor, a bier garten and TVs around the bar to check out the game give this place a livelier feel than most beer bars in the area. The service has always been good and the food while not out of this world is decent enough to make this a nice place to get dinner and good beers at a reasonable price.

It has reopened, and sounds similar to before; large number of taps with some elite stuff mixed in, including DFH which is not supposed to be in WI any longer?? Interesting very old building with personality. Didnít try the food, so no comment there. 5 minute turn around to pick someone up from arrivals at the airport. Iíll go back.

Great selection of tap beers and decent enough food. Bar staff was always friendly and talkative even when busy. I heard originally that they were renovating the old building, now I hear that they will not be moving back. I hope itís not true because I would miss the old building.

Iíve been here a few times, and usually shortly after opening, so I cannot comment on the rush. This rating reflects the pre-renovation condition, as that was my last trip. The bar has a very convenient airport/Amtrak location, which works well for unexpected travel delays (or can cause them). The interior was dark and slightly smoky, with the impressive array of taps providing most of the aesthetic appeal. Iíve never had anything but friendly, attentive, and informative service. The beer selection is very good, usually with more than one how the hell did he get that kinda taps. The place was a little smoky, but itís a bar. Great stuff!

The Landmark 1850 does have a few redeeming qualities: 50 taps (most of which are high-quality American crafts)... But, thatís about it. The ambiance isnít bad, but itís not great either. Same goes for the service. And, I have one complaint that balances out the huge positive that comes from their large selection. On several occasions Iíve had beers there that tasted much worse than what Iím accustomed to from those same brands from a bottle. Iím not sure if itís dirty glassware, unclean taplines, or what, but thereís a distinct difference between their taps and my other experiences with those beers. So, overall, the Landmark is OK, but it still doesnít compare with some of Milwaukeeís other top beer bars.
