Check out these details from Ryan Gardner, Curly’s General Manager, and then make a date to check out Curly’s!

Your menu is impressive! From pizza to ribs to an amazing Friday fish fry, you have it all. For someone new to the area or visiting from out of town, what is a must try?



That’s a tough question! Honestly, there’s not a bad dish on the menu. Our food is fantastic. But, people do love our pizza. It’s made from scratch – the crust, sauce, even the sausage, it’s so good. Other really popular items are the Curly burger and the Philly sandwich.

Curly’s live music line up has something for everyone. How often do you have bands perform? Are they local? What about cover charges? (So many questions…)



We have live music every weekend, either Friday or Saturday night from 9pm to midnight. The Waukesha Pewaukee area has so many talented musicians we make it a point to use local artists. And we never charge a cover. You can check out who’s playing and when on our website.

Tell us about Curly’s events and game day specials.



First and foremost, we are happy to help area non-profits host an event. We’ll give them the bar for the day and help them promote their event to raise money for their cause.

Curly’s puts on many meat raffles during the year, we have the fish jamboree in winter and on the 2nd Friday in June we have our golf outing.

During Badger and Packer games, every drink you buy gets you a ticket for raffles, where guests win awesome prizes. For Brewer and Bucks games we have great drink specials.

We also host bingo on Wednesdays, where winners receive tickets to Bucks, Brewers and Packer games.

Trivia night is on Thursdays and is so much fun! We give away Summerfest tickets, passes to the State Fair – whatever is going on around town during that time of year. In the fall we are starting back with our once-a-month themed trivia night. In the past we’ve done Star Wars, Seinfeld, Friends, The Office, Wisconsin sports, Harry Potter and Game of Thrones as themes to name a few – people love it.

There’s a VIP text club at Curly’s that offers discounts and coupons on food and drinks. How does someone sign up for that?



The VIP club is a great way to receive discounts and reminders of what’s going on at Curly’s. People need to text “curlys” to 22452. The first time they do they’ll receive $10 off their bill of $25 or more. Text club members receive live band announcements, with buy one get one drink specials, and we also send out random one-day-only promotions, like $5 off of a $20 check.

Curly’s has a fun happy hour and food specials every night of the week. What are the most popular items?



People come in just for the wings on Mondays. They are delicious and only .50 cents each. We offer them bone-in and boneless. Taco Tuesday is also a crowd-pleaser with $1.50 tacos, and other tasty Mexican fare. Many guests enjoy our happy hour all week long. It’s Monday thru Friday from 3pm – 6pm and we offer $2 rail mixers, $2 domestic pints, $3.50 Long Islands and wine and $4 call cocktails. Come in for the happy hour fun and stay for the fantastic food!
