Smyth is inspired by the days gone by term for blacksmithing. We honor the blacksmith and his craft by creating cuisine that reflects the handcrafted, soulful trade of transforming raw materials into works of art. We draw seasonally from the bounty that Wisconsin and the Midwest have to offer. Smyth is an intelligent balance between the playful and the traditional. Enjoy soups, salads, appetizers and entrees as well as plates meant for sharing.

Beneath the soaring Sixth Street Viaduct, you’ll find The Yard, our popular, dog-friendly patio. The Yard is the perfect summer spot to grab a cocktail and a pizza from our wood-burning oven while you sit back under the colorful overhead sails that provide the delicate balance of sun and shade.  To see our full offerings, view The Yard’s menu.

The Yard offers an unforgettable venue for nontraditional Milwaukee corporate meetings, social gatherings or weddings and is available for private catering events.
