Less than 10 Minutes from Downtown Milwaukee

Located in the heart of Milwaukee's West Allis neighborhood, Kegel's Inn serves up the most authentic German fare in the area. Inside you'll find a warm atmosphere, friendly service and one of the most beautiful beer halls in the country. With incredible murals, leaded glass, and heavy wooden beams, one can almost hear rounds of "Du Bist Mein Herzen" reverberating in the Bierstube. Since 1924, Kegel's Inn has been the locals' go-to destination for authentic German cuisine and continues to top the charts as one of the best places to catch a Friday Fish Fry in Milwaukee.

5 Stars, Mike S., April 2018

“This is the kind of place you can safely recommend to others. Always a full house, and for good reason. The food is well made, with generous portions. Kegel's is on most people's lists for best fish fry. Owner Julian is a remarkably friendly guy. You may have a wait when you get there but buy a drink and enjoy a good time.”

5 Stars, Dan K., March 2018

“The atmosphere is very neat and feels like you're in Germany. The fish fry is fantastic. If you plan to go for a Friday fish fry, it's packed so those without reservations will wait a while. You can stay in the bar area and enjoy a good German beer while you wait.”
