About Water Buffalo

Milwaukee's favorite riverfront bar and restaurant in the heart of the historic third ward for nearly 10 years.

Fantastic outdoor riverfront seating as well as a dynamic, highly designed space with a varied casual American menu.

Plenty of parking via street parking and nearby structures.

This may be the most unique Riverfront restaurant and bar in Milwaukee.
