    We love coming here. The food is always very delicious and appropriately priced. They have a lot of burger combos and great vegetarian options. Service is on top of everything and timely. Aside from the quirky decor which adds to the experience, the rooftop dining is where it is at. If you come during busy times expect a small waiting period to be seated up there. While you wait pull up a seat at the bar and enjoy any number of cocktails or beers. My wife is a fan of the Sour Suzie and they have my favorite IPA on tap. Street outdoor seating is excellent as well. We have been coming here for a long time and will continue to do so. If you’re in Waukesha, definitely no questions asked, visit this place!!!!!

    Interesting old building, right on the corner. Eat inside or outside sidewalk tables. I think there is even rooftop. Enjoyed a Valley Burger, (1/2# angus beef, romaine, tomato, red onion, avocado, bacon, lime cilantro aioli and cheddar cheese) instead of the fries, at no extra cost, had a cucumber, tomato,onion, mozzarella, and calamata olive salad. The food was very good, waitstaff friendly and accommodating. Not your everyday burger, tho you could have that too! Look forward to returning.

    The chipotle chicken sandwich is very good so are the sweat potato fries. This last visit we had the artichoke cheese dip and burgers. Everything was delicious. We love sitting on the rooftop when the weather is nice.

    First timer after a recommendation from a local. Went for lunch so it wasn't too crowded. Really interesting menu ... lots of things to try in the future. Fun, festival atmosphere and the full bar is a nice benefit.

    Delicious, amazing food. I enjoyed the pork tenderloin sandwich, which is probably one of the best sandwiches I've ever had. They also have delicious lemonade you can add a flavor to. I tried the raspberry lemonade and strawberry lemonade. Both were AMAZING. I'm looking forward to coming back soon.

    I had zero clue about this town and place but happy I stumbled in. Plenty of seating options including a roof top. Great menu and getting a grilled pork tenderloin was a nice surprise. It was delicious. I sat at the bar on a Friday lunch and great service and fun atmosphere.

    Visited with my daughter. Quaint and fun atmosphere. We were here at lunch, so it was busy and a bit loud. Had the college games on. I ordered the Sandwich Capri. I liked it because it came on a Crusty bread and didn't get soggy. It was the perfect portions.

    I think the atmosphere was my most favorite part of this place but the food and the service was right up there as well! Our server was super friendly and knowledgeable. She offered great suggestions! The food was amazing and the peanut sauce--SOOO GOOD!

    Overall a great experience! Service was very good. The locations is cute with lots of seating space. We were there for a business lunch and it was easy to get food ordered and the bill paid. The parking situation around lunchtime is quite messy though! Give yourself a few extra minutes if you’re meeting someone. The salad I had was pretty good…although I’m not sure that I’ve ever had grilled Romaine lettuce, but it worked quite nicely with the fried shallots, bacon and Gorgonzola.

    Eclectic, fun, and vibrant downtown location with indoor and outdoor seating. College boys and this mom loved every bit from the decor, service, ambience, food, and family vibe. Great restaurant!

    Had a lovely dinner last night at People’s Park, courtesy of our amazing server Schae L. My wife had Rosie’s Garden Salad and I had the Valley Burger with Sour Cream and Chive fries. Both entrees were simply amazing. The ciabatta roll accompanying my burger - which is typically not my preference - was incredible. Very soft and fresh, but still plenty of support for the contents of the burger. Delicious! And a big shout out to Schae for the wonderful job she did serving our table. She was cheerful, attentive and efficient. She made a memorable experience from an already great meal. Ask for her!

    Everything about this place was excellent! Our first time here and I'm so glad we stumbled upon it. Wait staff was friendly and welcoming, it was decorated beautifully for the holiday, the food was delicious and served in a timely manner. Can't wait to go back!

    Been in multiple times and have loved it every time! The atmosphere is just right and you feel comfortable the moment you step in. I’ve never had a bad thing off the menu or from the bar. The rooftop in the summer is such a fun space to hang out at!

    Delicious food and great service! I loved the rooftop seating!

  • 4/5 Jimmy R. 1 year ago on Google
    Great food. This is a restaurant that consistently delivers a good meal and cute atmosphere. Rooftop is great for a date night. Parking in downtown can be sparse but the downtown area is smaller and worth walking. Highly recommend their sweet potato fries!

    Halloween interior perfection. Try the Salmon. It was so good. "Aladin" our waiter gave perfect service. This place is always fun.

    Always enjoy People's Park. Sidewalk and rooftop seating. Good food and service. Vegetarian friendly. Varied menu. Most recently had grilled chicken sandwich and wife had grilled cheese. Portabella sandwich also good from previous visit. Excellent option in downtown Waukesha.

    Have been here a few times now and it’s never disappointed. Really good burgers and sandwiches. Make sure to get sweet potatoe fries and ask for their chipotle mayo, it’s amazing. I also like their artichoke and roasted red pepper dip for an appetizer. Food is priced well, staff has always been awesome, and the food never takes too long. The only downside is this place can be too busy (busy for a good reason) sometimes so there’s usually a wait when I go for dinner.

    I love this place. Eclectic. Good food. Good service. The place is huge but it's small rooms so you don't feel lost. Inside dining. Outside dining. I'll go back often.

    This is a great spot to eat with family and friends. I recommend making reservations, as they can sometimes get busy. They have an extensive menu, with lots of vegetarian friendly and gluten-free items. I don’t typically enjoy spinach artichoke dip, but it is delicious here!

  • 5/5 Anna Z. 6 months ago on Google
    The food was tasty. There is a lot of fun decor around the restaurant. They have an upper level which was super cool to eat in. Our server was phenomenal and attentive to serving us and refilling our drinks while we ate. I would eat here again.

    I have been coming to People's Park for years and love it! They make strong drinks, it's an interesting atmosphere, and the servers are so friendly. The old fashioned is always delicious, their spring rolls are so good, and on fridays, the fish fry is mouth watering. Despite all of these ups, only four stars because: Even if the restaurant is half full, you can wait upwards of 20+ min for a water. The coffee is served in a glass cup? This might just be a personal gripe but I'd like a mug please. And finally, some menu items are disappointing and IMO overpriced (looking at you bruschetta). If you're lucky enough to be in Waukesha though, definitely stop here for a bite!

    Food and service were good. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meal, drinks & dessert. The staff was friendly and attentive. Only minor issue was my burger was ordered medium rare, but came out medium well. They looked to also have some good flatbread pizza options, but unfortunately they are only available after 9pm on Fri/Sat, so we couldn't get them on this trip. Note: the flat bread pizzas are available throughout the day during the rest of the week. The rooftop seating is always nice when it gets a little warmer!

    The atmosphere here is always great! The food always tastes amazing and you’ll enjoy the wide variety of menu options. People’s Parks strays far from the traditional menu with great tasting options. The drink menu also has something for everyone with many cocktail options and plenty of beer choice! Service is also excellent every time I’ve been here. I’ve never had a long wait. Staff is always incredibly friendly! If your spending time in Waukesha or haven’t been here yet, definitely check it out. Prices here are a little on the high end but when your getting super unique food and top shelf cocktails it’s expected.

    This appears to be a very popular place. It was not my favorite. The menu was too much for me as a picky eatter. I ordered plain french toast which could have tested great if it was not soggy.

  • 4/5 Kaylee G. 2 years ago on Google
    Overall it was a pretty good experience. The atmosphere and decor is really unique and the music added to this in a neat way. We were seated on the upper floor and had mozzarella sticks and burgers (the mozza sticks are super good!). My black bean burger was a little spicy for my liking but I'm also a wimp, lol. Josh was our server and he was pretty chill but had no idea what hot tea they serve - which is fair. I think most people here are ordering harder stuff 😂🤙🏻

    The food was decent, good service. We got there about 30 minutes after they opened and they were already out of the sweet potato browns. So I got fruit instead and upcharged $2! I find that BS Great coffee
