Review of Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub
We had just completed our coursework for our master's degrees a little further up the road at the Brookfield campus of Cardinal Stritch University, and we were looking to celebrate.
It was my first, and has remain my only (but not for long!) visit to Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub, but I was impressed enough to want to write about it and recommend this place to others.
That evening, as I was looking at the menu, I decided I had eaten enough burgers, chicken sandwiches, fried fish and seafood, etc. in recent weeks. I was looking for something different. I found it in the portobello sandwich.
It was served with cole slaw and a pickle spear, and I opted for the fries among other options. Well, everything was delicious, but the portobello sandwich in particular really impressed me. It was really flavorful, and was as big and heavy as a half-pound burger. Add to it friendly waitstaff, plenty of drink options and specials, a great atmosphere, and a clean and roomy outdoor patio area, and Jackson's Blue Ribbon Pub is definitely a winner. Looking forward to getting back there soon.
Looks like they have a place in downtown Milwaukee, as well.
