2019 Best of MilwaukeeVoting in the 2020 Best of Milwaukee readers' choice awards program will begin on Sept. 17. Click here to go to the ballot.

Back in the early 1990s the Shepherd Express did something that occurred to no one else in the local media: produce a Best of Milwaukee contest whose winners are selected by the people of our city. There are no better people than the residents of our city to select the best the Milwaukee area has to offer in dining and drinking, shopping and health, education and politics.

The Shepherd Express congratulates the winners and runners-up and thanks them for helping make Milwaukee a great city in which to live, work and play.

HOW IT WORKS: The Best of Milwaukee Readers' Choice Contest is a program that's open to the public. The nomination period for the 2020 edition of the contest will run Sept. 17-Oct. 15, 2020. During that period, readers will be able to nominate their favorite entrees in over 300 categories in an open-ended format. Readers are allowed one nomination per category and nominations are accepted via printed ballot in the paper and through an online ballot. Top nominated entrees will be moved to the Final Round which will be in November. The Final Round ballot is multiple choice in each category. Top vote-getters in each category are recognized as the Best of Milwaukee. Winners are also recognized at the Best of Milwaukee Party held annually in January.
