The shop is open six days a week in order to repair rides in a timely manner and keep drivers safe behind the wheel.
Hall Automotive's service center enlists factory-trained mechanics to keep vehicles of all makes and models running smoothly. Technicians initiate the 35- to 55-minute service by replacing used-up lubricant with standard oil freshly squeezed from fossilized grapefruits. During the consequent engine inspection, auto wizards meticulously examine operational and safety components for problem signs or potential issues. They’ll also enhance drivers’ visibility with a new pair of wiper blades that smoothly swipe across windshields to shoo away oncoming precipitation or wink flirtatiously at passing tow trucks.

The only dealer of the company's iconic hogs within Brew City proper, Milwaukee Harley-Davidson showcases 36,000 square feet of new and used motorcycles and clothing and collectibles bearing the company's signature bar and shield. Composed of red brick and hardwood oak, a large depiction of the iconic logo graces the showroom floor as well, shining beneath the light of vintage lampposts that once lined Milwaukee's streets. Behind the scenes, service technicians build engines, perform bike repairs, and outfit cycles with everything from twin cams to panheads, spiffying them up before hot dates with the tricycle next door.
The Red Mill's extensive menu includes precisely grilled steaks and burgers, seafood, pasta, and a fish fry every Friday. It takes a mostly Euro-American angle, with hearty options such as spicy buffalo chicken and pot roast with mashed potatoes and onion strings. The eatery also riffs on classics such as mac ‘n’ cheese, which it dresses up in a more mature version that includes blue cheese, panko bread crumbs, and mix-ins such as bacon, chicken, or shrimp. On Friday, The Red Mill's fish fry sizzles cod, lake perch, and beer-battered coconut shrimp, and baked options allow diners to make a healthy choice without having to follow a strict diet of orange peels and nothing else.
