Crocodile has been my new Sunday place to go. I'm a 9-5er, but this turned out to be a good alternative to other places for a couple drinks and Great music....starts at 8pm. Every week legendary DJ JesseDeLaPea has a themed music night or special guest DJ's and MC's. The "free" pizza is a great treat to have for every drink order (not a lot of bars do that), not sure who took care of some of the people who didn't have a good experience or were charged, but on my last 2 visits (Sunday only) the waitress has asked specifically if I wanted a free Margarita pizza with my drink.
I've been going the past 2 months, and will probably go every chance I get!

Pros: nice alternative for a Sunday

Cons: parking

I can honestly say I have never had good service at Crocodile. 8 people sitting at the bar, all with drinks, and I ended up not getting served. Two friends of the bartender noticed I was getting aggravated and they asked their friend (the bartender) if she could get me a drink. Rather than asking me what I wanted to drink, the bartender asked me If I was a friend of the man that insisted the bartender took my order: I respond "yes", she responds "No You Aren't" and walks away without getting me a drink. I Refuse to go back

Pros: Location + Regulars

Cons: Poor Service

Good, small joint. Cocktails, both speciality and regular, are really good. The bartender is attentive and friendly. Very strongly recommend it, especially for a cool weeknight local.

In Short
Storefront bars along Milwaukee are a dime a dozen, and this small space certainly doesn't win any decorating awards with stenciled foliage on bare brick, lurid green undermount lighting and subway tile. But theā€¦
