One of America’s Best ‘Secret Restaurants’ is in Wisconsin
If you're looking for a place to eat a little off the beaten path, you're probably looking for a restaurant like this one.
Cool Material put together a list of the 10 Best Secret Restaurants in America, and a place not far from Rockford is highlighted.
Have you ever dreamt of being a spy? Have you ever dreamt of being a spy while chowing down on burgers, cheese curds, and polishing off a few brews?
If so, SafeHouse in Milwaukee might just be your spot, that is, if you can find the front door to the place.
Oh yeah, you'll also need a password to get in, but trust me, you'll figure it out.
Luckily, if you don’t know the password, you can still complete a mission to gain access. Once inside, you’ll be met with a cell door from an actual KGB prison, a booth that hides you and your guests, and the option to have the Unique Martini which is shaken not stirred by traveling through a tube around the restaurant...Before it was cool to make your establishment secretive, there was Safe House in Milwaukee.
Lynzee M. on Yelp says "SafeHouse was a fun dinner experience! Definitely not what we were expecting but for sure a place to go in Milwaukee!! Cheese curds were AMAZING!!"
However, Yelp reviewer Dee E. says "Everything about this experience was bad. The gimmick isn't interesting or fun; it's just stupid."
A few summers ago, I managed to get into SafeHouse. Like Lynzee, it wasn't what I expected but I guess I wasn't sure what to expect.
My best advice, SafeHouse, 779 North Front Street in Milwaukee, is the kind of place you should try for yourself. Just don't forget the password.
