I had the half rack. Wow. These ribs are great. Nice and sweet and falling off the bones. I picked the green beans and totally loved them. The corn bread was perfect! Service very attentive. Will definitely be back and highly recommend this rib place....More

As evidenced by a collection of awards resulting from community nominations, Saz’s State House continues to proudly serve the community both in and outside of the expanded restaurant walls. Featuring favorites like its signature BBQ Baby Back Ribs and BBQ Pork Sandwich, the State House also boasts a robust event schedule, seasonal specials, private event space, and complimentary shuttles to and from many Milwaukee sporting events.
