Eat at Motor®

Come for the Museum. Stay for the food. Like the Museum, Motor Bar & Restaurant serves up the best of American culture in an inspiring setting. In a hurry? Just come for the food. No Museum admission is required to dine at Motor.

King of the Road Food

Motor’s bold American classics celebrate the taste of life on the road. Road House Chili that tastes like it’s fresh from a Texas diner. BBQ Ribs redolent of a Little Rock smoke shack. And, fittingly, plenty of Wisconsin favorites: Fish Fry, Booyah Stew, and the best sausage and cheese in Milwaukee.
