Take a Step Back in Time at Millie's Supper Club

Millie's Supper Club: Steak, chicken pot pie and the traditional supper club dish, Genuine Broaster Chicken.
When Brian Reynolds set out to open Millie’s Supper Club in 2016, he drew inspiration from his own life — in particular, from his grandmother Millie, who introduced him to the supper club culture of Wisconsin. These supper clubs had a few things in common: a dark dining room with lots of ambiance, service that makes you feel like you’re family, unfussy dishes served in massive portions and old-school cocktails.
That’s exactly what you can expect at Millie’s Supper Club. While the Wisconsin supper clubs are usually near a lake or in a forest clearing, Reynolds’ restaurant is right in Lincoln Park. You wouldn’t know it from the quiet yet lively dining room, though. On the menu, you’ll find offerings like steak, meat loaf, chicken pot pie and the traditional supper club dish, Genuine Broaster Chicken. If you go on a Friday night, you can opt for the beer-battered fish fry special. When it comes to drinks, Reynolds recommends staying true to tradition and ordering an Old Fashioned or a gin martini. If you’re like most diners, you won’t be able to finish your dinner, but Millie’s happily offers doggie bags!
