Molly Cool's is a seafood lover's dream

A few weeks ago, this reviewer was asked to be a guest blogger for, and chose Molly Cool's Seafood Tavern to review. That review can be found here.

But, as good as the brunch is, a full review of non-brunch items is warranted.

Molly Cool's is a seafood lover's dream, with enough choices to satisfy almost everyone, and enough non-seafood/fish dishes to appeal to both meat eaters and vegetarians.

There is no "bad seat" in the restaurant, but a seat outside or next to the windows, to watch the river and people pass by, seems to be almost mandatory. Unless you want to watch a sporting event, in which case the large screen TVs in the bar area are plentiful.

Start with some appetizers - fresh Oysters on the half, or Oysters Rockefeller, a half pound bucket of Peel N Eat Shrimp, or the perennial favorite, Hot Crab & Spinach Dip.

Next, you can order a salad (the roasted beet over mixed greens is excellent) or soup (the addition of bacon to the New England style Clam Chowder makes this especially tasty), or move right on to the main courses.

There is a hint of the South here, with choices such as seafood jambalaya and fried Oyster Po'Boys, and meat eaters will love the Blue Cheese and Crab stuffed steak and Myrtle's BBQ Ribs.

For seafood and fish choices, the menu changes daily to accommodate the fresh daily deliveries. Pick your own lobster from the tank, feast on Diver Scallops, order a classic fish n' chips basket, or try the Catch of the Day, made your way -grilled, blackened or broiled.

If you still have room for dessert, there are daily specials available.

There is a Friday Fish Fry - All You Can Eat Cod or Whitefish for $10.95, and there are several Happy Hour Specials. From Monday to Thursday, 3 PM - 7 PM, on weekends Noon - 6 PM, and an every night "Nite Owl" from 10 PM - Midnight.

There is finally an excellent seafood restaurant in Metro Milwaukee - Molly Cool's Seafood Tavern.

    I highly recommend the Blue Cheese and Crab stuffed steak. And the oysters.... lots and lots of oysters! Good selection of beers on tap and terrific service too!

    Aren't you the Ethnic Restaurants Reviewer? You're title is different. Did you change?

    Mary -

    Yes. I was the Ethnic Restaurants Examiner, and recently I've become the Restaurants Examiner. This gives me a much wider array of places to review, and I'm very excited about it.
