We made a reservation for a specific time. When we arrived it was not busy. We had to wait to be seated because they only share one computer system and someone was taking another reservation. (No big deal) We were then seated and waited at minimum 10 minutes to order our lemonade. We then had to keep asking to order our appetizers and then our meal. After we received our food we were asked if we needed anything else and we said yes, the waitress said you’re welcome and walked away. We decided to forget it. The waitress checked on us once during our dinner before we asked for boxes. We could not hear anything because the band was way too loud for such a small space. When I tried to pay immidiately the waitress put the bill on the table and I asked her to take it but again she walked away. We felt ignored repeatedly, and it wasn’t even busy. Perhaps only come here to drink and listen to music because it reminded me entirely of a bar that served food. The service was not at all what I would have expected from a franchise like Harley, but I’m glad I was able to experience it and deter any fellow patrons. Poor service. Mediocre food. Good music. That’s it in a nutshell.
Came to grab dinner with some friends before a concert - it was about 6:00pm and was a great time to be there. Not many people dining, service was spectacular, food was ready quick, and tasted delicious! We will definitely be dining again soon!
Probably a blast in the summer as it looks like outdoor dining. Will be sure to go back. Phenomenal menu and atmosphere. Iconic Milwaukee at its best!
Great time once again at Motor. Went with friends for the first Bike Night of 2018. Our waitress, Brooke, was fabulous! She was attentive, brought a sample of a beer for my friend to ensure she liked it before ordering a full beer (did that on her own, we didn't ask for it), food came out really quick. Ordered cheese curds and fried pickles for appetizers, which were hot and delicious (and gooey for the curds!). Around the table for dinner we had Kale salad, cheeseburger, brisket stuffed potato, flatbread pizza, sliders, and brisket salad. Everyone loved their meal. Great job, Motor!!
Cold food. Slightly less cold when remade. (MAC and cheese). One server for whole dining room for first twenty min of sitting down.
Go here for drinks and The Blues on Sat evening. The food is just ok, nothing spectacular. I would eat somewhere else and then come for the music.
Wonderful staff and good food! We celebrated the new year and really enjoyed it.
The menu descriptions and food choices were appealing. The french fries were hot, but the meat was just warm and the barbecue sauce was okay tasting. The waiter was friendly but didn't check if we needed any refills or how our food was until we finished eating.
It was quite busy and service was slow - didn't seem to be enough servers for the number of people in the restaurant.
My bill was not correct and took a while to correct.
I go to Motor often for the music on Saturday nights. I will continue to go but hope that the service issues improve.
Very poor waitress, didn't bring us water after asking. We felt ignored.
