I live in Kenosha and shop here often. We also bring out of visitors here and they always love it. The wine and beer selection are top notch. After having lived in Italy for four years I grew a custom to fresh food and a great selection.
,this place offers it all.

La Fogata Mexican Grill

Reviewed By DIVBG12 - Kenosha, Wisconsin

Time and time again this place serves amazing food! However, getting a reservation or table is next to impossible! They NEED to expand - again! I feel like they over exaggerate the amount of wait time - which drives people away. They’ve been in business long enough now to know it’s a popular restaurant and the “small” dining area isn’t cutting it anymore. PLEASE expand into your LARGE parking lot!!

Sazzy B

A great restaurant offering big city atmosphere and quality in the heart of downtown Kenosha

Reviewed By paulwg2017

If you're looking for a place with GREAT atmosphere, GREAT food, GREAT bartenders and wait staff, GREAT live music, Sazzy B in Kenosha, WI is the place! Their head chef, Mary Radigan (of the legendary Radigan's Restaurant), has an amazing menu! The bartenders are awesome - serving custom drinks that are out of this world. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. They also have a fine selection of wines and beer, especially with adjoining The Buzz cafe, featuring wines, craft beers, coffees, panini sandwiches, etc. The music is great no matter what day of the week... they always feature live music - local jazz Americana, R & B,.. Check out the calendar online, but on the weekends, you can always count on great local live jazz starting at 8 or 8:30 pm. They also have a fantastic weekend brunch! This is not your average bar/restaurant. The entire event is amazing, and the prices are very reasonable. In a town where you can easily park on the block for free... The atmosphere and food are like no other place in town - you'd swear you were in downtown Chicago or New York. Check it out!

The Garage is a tiny bar and grill across the street from what was once a car factory back when America still made things in Unionized family sustaining middle class building American dream jobs. Just great burgers remains. Highly recommended.

Frank's Diner

Reviewed By lynne p - Hobart, Indiana

This is a TINY place, actually old train car, and been expanded. CASH ONLY people. ATM on premises. Be prepared to wait, be squished, hear some sarcasm and have a feast of a breakfast. the garbage plate is HUGE ... hashbrowns, meat (you choose 1,2,3), eggs, green pepper and onion (Jalapeno optional) all mixed up w/your choice of four cheeses. Choice of toast .. pick their homemade on made w/yogurt. Sit at counter if you can. We had PRIMO view of grill. The gal working it is something else. She's quick efficient and knows what she's doing! All the workers work fast in tight quarters and work together. Guy seating you is full of sarcasm, dont' take offense. You will be bumped and brushed upon but just enjoy. They've HUGE pancakes as well, seriously as big as an entire dinner plate. Can get mimosas too and other drinks. Was featured on "diners, drive in and dives" w/Guy Fieri. It's worth wait. Can get 10% coupon on kenosha website. Try it as you wont' be disappointed. Doesn't look like much from outside but boy is this delicious breakfast. Think have lunch foods are well. Only open til about 2-3.

House of Gerhard

Reviewed By Ken W - Kenosha, Wisconsin

For some reason, do not know why, we do not eat here very often.
Will have to rectify that problem as their food and service is always very good.
Met friends there for lunch today. Wife ordered prime rib, potatoes O’Brien and a salad.
All were very good. I ordered the shrimp, potatoes O’Brien and chicken soup. The battered shrimp were very large and the batter was very good as were the potatoes. Soup was very good and had lots of ingredients in the cup.
We sat down and were served a platter of muffins and rolls. They were very good.
I then asked for liver pate and was served a full bowl with pieces of toast. I think they have the best pate of any restaurant.
Service was great and prices were comparable to other fine dining establishments.
We will return!

The Coffee Pot

Reviewed By rehclass - Westminster, California

While traveling to the area, a couple on our flight recommended this restaurant as the place to go in Kenosha; they were not wrong. We loved how this place has a feeling of history about it. We chose to wisely to be seated outside on this beautiful late summer day. I ordered the sausage percolator and a half order of biscuits and gray; my wife ordered the stuffed French toast. The food was really tasty and the coffee bold. WARNING: This restaurant is cash only. This is the type of place you could come to regularly, enjoy a leisurely meal and relax.

Reviewed By Matt R - Nottingham, New Hampshire, United States

What A great place to grab breakfast. The server's & cooks are fantastic, friendly, and quite frankly, like family. My wife and are in from the Boston area visiting friends, AND we're foodies.
Our friend Mike brought us here to share with us his morning routine which includes a heart healthy breakfast. I was so impressed that his ideal breakfast is called the Mike's Ultimate. You can order this as all the staff know the ingredients, and we were not let down at all. So glad to have made the trek! Peace

Tuscany Bistro Bar & Grill

Locally owned & operated by Chef Theresa Ianni Robinson along with her father Guglielmo serving you the finest Northern Italian cuisine!

Reviewed By guesswhoWisconsin - wisconsin

At first approach the atmosphere is pleasant, that’s it. I have gotten the impression from our three visits this establishment thinks they are above what they are putting out. Nothing from service, bar, food, presentation are memorable. The food is mediocre, the service boarders on bad, we have been forgotten about due to a party in the side room, and we have been rudely told that the bar is closing drink up right after our drinks were ordered and cashed out at mind you, 8:45. The food is over priced and very very average. Not ever had an enjoyable experience here.

Reviewed By jac323 - Kenosha, Wisconsin

I can't seem to be able to edit my first review so I'm leaving an updated one here. Great place, sign is no longer in the window as there are new owners, and new ownership has transitioned well keeping it pretty much the same as it was. Our favorite pizza place in Kenosha and we go there often. Highly recommended...
