Waterfront Drinks & Dining


Milwaukee has no shortage of cozy cafes, upscale restaurants and trendy taverns, all set against the picturesque backdrop of Lake Michigan and Milwaukee Rivers. Enjoy everything from craft cocktails to fresh seafood while soaking in the beauty of Milwaukee's waterfront charm.

Start your morning off with a coffee and pastry at Colectivo Coffee’s lakefront location and enjoy a picturesque view of the McKinley Marina and Bradford Beach. If you are looking for a lunchtime treat, head to the Twisted Fisherman for fresh seafood, beach vibes and a serene outdoor dining experience alongside the Menomonee River. Finish your evening with a craft cocktail or bottle of wine at one of Milwaukee’s newest hotspots, Vault, located in the heart of downtown on the Milwaukee RiverWalk.
