Friends told us about their wonderful experience while dining at the Black Kettle. Located in the town of Granville - Milwaukee. Just on the border of Meno. Falls, Mil. & Germantown. Our friends who are in their 60's said they used to eat at the Black Kettle for many, many years and still enjoy the great food and service 20 years later.
So, we decided to try the place. My husband and I are in our mid 30's. How refreshing to find a real place, not a chain. Upon pulling up to the restaurant we were impressed to find a neat and tidy place. The server greeted us and asked if we would like to go to a table or to have a cocktail in the bar. We choose the bar! How beautiful! We were so impressed in the fine old woodwork. Very classy. The lady bartender made us feel very comfortable and told us about the dinner evening specials. The king crab sounded expensive $49 for all u can eat - but she assurred us it was wonderful. She also mentioned an all u can eat prime rib also. She said the Prime rib is not the usual little slice-it was atleast 1 lb. we had our drinks and went into the ""fireplace room"". Very old fashioned with it's hardwood floors and dark rich woodwork.
Food was outstanding!
We both took the recommendation of the Prime Rib- a customer next to us even recommended it- It was so tender and huge. Who could eat more?
Onion soup -oooh oohhh soooooo good.
Our server Mel was a delight.
As we were leaving we spotted the king crab -I should have tried them. HUGE. We will definetly be back for them.
Great dining experience.
Pros: WE WERE TREATED LIKE ROYALTY
Cons: WISH WE HEARD ABOUT THIS FABULOUS PLACE YEARS AGO.
