A Living Relic — A Legacy for Many

Milwaukee icon The Silver Spring House has been a local favorite for generations, serving as an anchor between past and present. Located in the heart of Wisconsin’s beautiful North Shore, our historic landmark is a venerable milestone with a 114-year history, yet it offers much more than historical significance.

Today, our patrons come to indulge in our delicious comfort food, intimate setting and genuine hospitality and to celebrate the old-world charm and legends of our neighborhood establishment. A classic American restaurant, The Silver Spring House provides an inviting pub-style experience, offering authentic casual cuisine, traditional favorites, and an array of specialty crafted sandwiches and burgers, including The Bonny Clapper, The Alouette Burger, and The NY Ribeye Stack just to name a few. In addition, we have a decadent beer menu featuring our Silver Spring House “home brew” from Glendale-based Sprecher brewery.

Celebrate the new … Reconnect with the past… Because “legends never die.”

“The Kid” gained national recognition for a piece of art donated to the Dallas Police Department after the 2016 deadly sniper ambush that wounded twelve officers – five fatally. The piece of art was created as a tribute to honor and support the police officers of Dallas. The art piece was replicated on t-shirts, posters, and other items to help raise money for Assist The Officer Foundation (ATO) which benefits the families of fallen officers.

Since forming Kid Galleries, “The Kid” has helped raise thousands of dollars for numerous charities with the donation of his art work. Each piece shown has been created in a series of 500 and are for sale. 3ft. X 3ft. pieces sell for $500 and 2ft. X 2ft. pieces sell for $300. Monies benefit The Children’s Art Fund and Assist the Officer Foundation.
