How to take a free shuttle to a Milwaukee Bucks game

Who wants to take care of parking in downtown Milwaukee, which could mean spending a lot of money for a spot or circling the streets as playtime gets closer and closer? Several Milwaukee bars and restaurants offer free transportation (for the price of a drink) to the Milwaukee Bucks home games at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, making the whole experience a breeze. Here’s your guide to hopping on a free shuttle, and what you can expect to eat (or drink) before the game.

Jackson’s Blue Ribbon Pub

Available at both Jackson’s Blue Ribbon Pub locations: Wauwatosa and Milwaukee (inside the Brewhouse Inn & Suites, just north of downtown), the shuttle takes you to the game with ease.

What’s on the menu: cheese curds, chicken wings, and oysters to start; healthy salads like the Nutty Fruit Salad and Jackson’s Baja Salad; half a dozen flatbreads and seven pizzas; sandwiches (from pork carnitas to ribs) and buildable burgers

O’Lydia’s Bar & Grill

This Irish restaurant meets bar food at Walker’s Point and offers a free shuttle to all guests.

What’s on the Menu: Typical bar fare like onion rings, sliders, and sandwiches like an Irish Steak sandwich (each sandwich comes with French fries, French fries, Mashed potatoes, Coleslaw, Salad, Baked Potato, or Soup ), as well as nine different salads including spinach, avocado and strawberry salad.

Steny’s Tavern & Grill 

Open since 1995, Steny’s, in Walker’s Point, has become known for its Bloody Mary (you can even get it in a grunt to go). And the Shuttle Bus Special offers you a free national beer (with every purchase).

What’s on the Menu: Comfort foods like Mac N Cheese, Baked Stuffed Jalapeños, and Wings (choice of 13 flavor sauces), or the Sharing Sample Platter (six sides including Reuben Rolls and Spinach Artichoke Dip ).

Saz State House

The baby back ribs in BBQ sauce are what draws people to Saz’s, but a free bus ride to a set of Bucks makes the experience even better.

What’s on the Menu: Unique apps like cranberry wontons and a flatbread topped with Wisconsin cheddar cheese and BBQ chicken or pulled pork, plus hearty dishes like a Sicilian pork chop or blackened catfish. Add the Baby Back Rib Combo (1/3 of a rack) to any main dish.

Jack’s American Pub

Open since 2013 on bustling Brady Street on the city’s East Side, the setting is an upscale sports bar, serving brunch, lunch and dinner. Salads and soups for the healthy-minded are on the menu, as are indulgent selections like a Philadelphia roll with a side of jalapeno cheese or filet tenderloin sliders.

What’s on the Menu: While the menu is chock-full of delicious options, the nightly specials are worth checking out. For example, Tex-Mex Tuesdays mean $ 2 tacos and on Thursdays, a pitcher purchase gets you a free pizza. There’s even a fish fry Friday to feed him before going to the game.

Brewski’s Sports Club Bar and Grill

Running a shuttle service to all Bucks home games on Fridays and Saturdays from its location near the border of Wauwatosa / Milwaukee (76th St. and Blue Mound Road), worth seeing the daily specials of food and drink from the bar. For example, on Fridays, it’s two-in-one barrel and rail drinks, plus a fried fish.

What’s on the Menu: Fruits, fun drinks like Electric Smurf and Bermuda Triangle, plus draft beers and cocktails, join 12-inch pizzas, eight signature burgers, sandwiches, and apps.

Spitfires in state

Just a stone’s throw from Miller Brewery, this wings and beer spot thrives for sports fans and lovers of grilled food.

What’s on the Menu: Choose from 22 flavors for your wings, from a light sesame ginger to a flavorful Caribbean jerk. Burgers and sandwiches are also on the menu, while French fries, battered onion wings, and cheese curds are easily shareable.
