Ask Ann: What Milwaukee Restaurants are Open on Sundays?

Got a dining question? Our critic answers it.

Read all of our Ask Ann questions.

Q: Many restaurants in the area are closed on Sunday nights. Can you name a few good ones that serve on that quintessential day of rest?

A: Some owners consider even one day closed a luxury they can’t afford to take. Those that do shutter consider it a day for the staff to recharge.

But I’m often in your shoes, looking for a good Sunday night restaurant! Here are some solid ones to keep in your back pocket.

Bay View’s Goodkind is a great fallback – it serves dinner every day until the (a rarity) late, late hour of 1 a.m. There’s also fellow BV residents Odd Duck (until 10 p.m.) and Honeypie (till 9 p.m.).

In Walker’s Point, you’ve got Crazy Water (serves until 8 p.m.) and Hotel Madrid, which has dining service at Bodegón restaurant (10 p.m. cutoff) and Vermuteria 600 bar, where Sunday features an all-night happy hour, with half-priced bar food.

A few Third Ward-area options are Char’d Korean restaurant (10 p.m. kitchen close), Merriment Social (until 9 p.m.) and Tre Rivali at the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel (11 p.m.).

Heading north into Downtown and the East Side, there’s Buckley’s (till 10 p.m.) and Lake Park Bistro (8:30 p.m. wind-down).

If you’re going west, Maxie’s is right off of I-94 and serves fresh oysters, BBQ and Big Easy-style fare until 9 p.m.
