The pesky Arizona Diamondbacks took down the Brewers 10-6 in their NLDS game Wednesday night. But the beloved Brew Crew is not snakebit just yet: there's a deciding game 5 to be had in Milwaukee Friday evening. If you're making the trek to Miller Park, you could just eat at the stadium. But those who value their digestive tracts as well as their hard earned cash will be looking for local Milwaukee restaurants for a bite before or after the game. Lucky for the latter group that we've just revised and edited our list of Milwaukee's Best restaurants. For those unfamiliar with our new site, you can search for Milwaukee restaurants by price range, category (cuisine), address and even proximity to landmarks.
Restaurants near Miller Park include Saz's State House - go with the St. Louis-style ribs or the fried fish on Friday - which is also an ideal place to watch the game if you don't have tickets. Or there's the classic German beer hall experience at Kegel's Inn, open since 1924. For post-game pizza, Balistreri's Bluemond Inn is a favorite among locals as well.
Happy dining in the Brew City, or as the Algonquin Indians called it, Mill-e-wah-que, for "The Good Land." (at least according to Alice Cooper)
