    Our service was good, but the butter chicken dish was just okay. The rice served with it was mushy and over seasoned when paired with the butter chicken sauce. My husband’s drink had a hair in it. No hurry to return.

    Our server was fantastic and attentive but not pushy. Helpful but not overbearing. Simply the best. Food was excellent and decent portions for sharing between 2 of us. Noise - all hard surfaces in dining rooms tend to get too noisy and difficult to hear conversation, so a few sound absorbent materials strategically placed would do wonders for an enhance ambiance.

    This was my second time to this restaurant… I wanted to bring my husband, our two daughters and a family friend to experience Story Hill. We all loved it!! Recently, we went to Birch downtown for my husband’s birthday and someone asked me which we liked better and we all agreed Story Hill BKC was a better experience and the food was better too. We really enjoyed Birch but the fun atmosphere and food is unbeatable at Story Hill. Thank you to our waitress Ann S who was great… she suggested the best dishes for our table and was very attentive and fun!

    My fiancé and I loved our dinner at Story Hill BKC! It was our first time going and it will not be the last! We went on a busy Saturday night and had a reservation, so we were seated easily. It did take a while for our sever to come to our table and take our drink order (we waited a little close to 15 min - there were 2 very large parties there so we have some understanding of a busy night), however the manager noticed that we had been waiting and took our drink order right away and the service over all was excellent. It was friendly service, and the food was some of the best I had in MKE! We ordered a special for an appetizer, and the Story Hill Steak (Milwaukee style) and the short rib gnocchi. Thank goodness the plates are meant to be shared because we thoroughly enjoyed both. I always order steak medium rare and it was cooked perfectly, and everything was so flavorful. I know it’s hard to take a strangers word for it, and trust a random review without context, but everything was truly amazing. I moved here from Boston 3 years ago and have been enjoying the MKE food scene, and Story Hill was a great date night choice. As a teacher who is budget conscious and plans for meals like this one, it was worth it! The overall quality and experience was fantastic and I plan on bringing family when they come to visit. You could tell everyone else dining there was having a great night too - it was an incredible experience!!

    This was my third visit to your restaurant and it was a good experience as were the previous ones. My wife however found the ambient noise level to be too high in combination with the music that was playing. I will be back with some of the guys but she will not be attending due to the noise. It was difficult to converse with our friends at the same table. Thank you.

    We went to BKC for a birthday dinner. We arrived for an 8:00 reservation and were seated right on time. The restaurant was lively with plenty of diners still there. The food and the service were both top notch. Our server was very personable and attentive even though we were sure she was quite busy. We ordered 2 passable dishes for 3 adults and it was plenty of food for a main entree. This is not our first time at Story Hill BKC. We have come for appetizers and happy hour. We will definitely return.
