Used to come here almost every night with my roommate, but that was 2 years ago. Since then, I went back once and ordered a Meat Lovers Skillet and it sucked... Hoping it was a mistake and this place didn't go to the dogs. My roommate and

Omelet was great, potatoes were great, and my coffee cup never got to half empty! I'll be back.

I brought a friend of mine, who was visiting from Florida, to this place on New Years. I ordered a reuben and my friend ordered a chicken sandwich. Because of the late hour, the waitress asked for the payment immediately. She said the bill

The omelettes and fried potatoes are the best. The biscuits and gravy are pretty good, too, just not the southern style sawmill gravy that I'm used to. I love stopping here on my way home from church for a fun breakfast with the family.

I love this place! The prices are reasonable and I always leave full! Plus, they are open twenty four hours and are located near a ton of bars, so it makes for a great place to go after the bars close!

My "Garden Salad" consisted of old looking packaged lettuce, one slice of a tomato cut up into 4 pieces (which had a grimy texture, a couple slices of carrot, and huge chunks of broccoli and cauliflower (so big that when I took it home due to not being able to cut it up at the table for normal sized pieces, I made a salad as if I bought ingredients, rather than buying a salad to eat at the restaurant).

To top it off, I ended up leaving after waiting so long, when the waitress knew I finished eating my meal, so I never received the dessert that I ordered.

Pros: Great history of the restaurant, nice story in the menu.

Cons: Poor service, incomplete meals.

We usually go 2-3 times per month. No longer. They screwed up a simple order of eggs, so my wife sent it back. It came back again, unsatisfactory. So, she decided not to have a meal and simply wait for me to finish my meal. However, the restaurant manager insisted that we pay for the order, even though we did not eat it. The manager insisted he was right, we were wrong and how dare us question their egg making ability. He was extremely condecending. There was even mention of calling the police (!?). So, I made a very simple suggestion: He can either remove the $7.00 meal from the bill and we can continue as customers OR I will pay for the uneaten meal and make this our last visit. He then politely told us that he would remove it from our bill, but does NOT want our future patronage. So, that is that! Frankly, neither us is heart broken, as the food is not that great anyway.

Pros: It is open 24 hours per day.

Cons: Everything else

Good food, but sometimes too much. Don't need soup with every meal and most meals come with it. Service is a little slow, but it's usually busy when I am there.

It has been my experience, over the past 20+ years, that the food is ok, prices a bit high for quality, and the Management downright RUDE to Both Help and Police/Parking enforcment. I have witnessed first hand The owner, Georgie Panos and his Son, Peter Panos, chewing out the help in front of customers, and the later, Peter Panos, throwing full soda bottles at Parking Enforcers and Police.

For the quality of food, go to Mc D's, it's cheaper and less stressful for the customers. Service is okay, and every few years they have a fire to remodel the restaurant. There are much better choices for late night or daytime feeding.

My mom used to work at Ma Fischers when she was working her way through college. At that time it was one counter with a couple of chairs and nowadays it is a rather large sized "family" restaurant. As another reviewer said the prices are ridiculous and the crowd tends to get rowdy near bar closing... but the for a diner the food is pretty good. Not really a date place but a good place to go have brunch or hang out with some friends while enjoying some overpriced eggs.

PROS: Good Food
CONS: Bad Prices

This restaurant has great food, and I'll admit you get a lot of food when you order a meal. However, the prices are ridiculous. If you go after a certain hour I think it's 10 or 11 p.m they use different menus and their prices are even higher! You must also pay when ordering at this time. It gets very crowded late at night because of the bar crowd. I've had both good and ok service. The bus boys are always speeding to refill your coffee or water.

My boyfriend took me there when I visited Milwaukee for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I thought it was great. The food was good and our waitress was very friendly. The only thing that I didn't like is that it was a little slow, but considering that it was a Saturday night and so many people had probably just left the clubs, it was cool. When I return to Milwaukee in a couple of weeks, I will return there. And I know that when I move to Mikwaukee in January, I will most likely make Ma Fischer's one of my favorite places to eat.

Went to MA Fichers on a Saturday night 1015 pm. 2$ for a cup of coffee. HORRIBLE waitress. Lousy food, served cold and without any sides we ordered. When I told the waitress we had been charged for bacon that we didnt get (2.50 for this!), she says "Oh, I didnt charge you for that.". THEN WHY IS IT ON OUR CHECK! Also there was a 15% "gratuity" added... our bill for 2 burgers, coffee and a malt was almost 40 bucks!!! My boyfriend compained about these things and was threatened with the cops. We were refunded 2$ for the invisible bacon and the waitress lost her tip. ALSO, while this was going on there was a table of 8 people who could not get any of the 6 RUDE gossipy waitresses to serve them! Jaliscos is right up the street and far better and cheaper.

I miss Ma Fischer's almost as much as I miss George Webb's. Since moving from Milwaukee, I can only daydream about hot open face sandwiches and huge chocolate shakes.

Having been a waitress at Fischer's 'back in the day' (1987-8) I can honestly say I've tried everything they have and there's nothing bad about this place! The people watching, especially on the 3rd shift I used to work, is bar none and the comfort food found on the menu is some of the best I've found in my travels! A MUST after bar closing, if not for the food, for the people watching. Man, I miss Lorraine and Elaine! :)
