A word from Mr. B's - A Bartolotta Steakhouse
Mr. B's is a classic Italian steakhouse featuring an array of prime cuts that are cooked to perfection in a custom 1100-degree wood-burning oven. The preparation gives the steaks a caramelized, buttery crust, creating a flavor and texture that makes for one of the best steaks you've ever had.

The restaurant boasts a spacious, handsome dining room, a sprawling outdoor patio with a large fireplace, and a bar that features a popular weekday happy hour. In addition to steaks, the menu at Mr. B's offers fresh seafood and a wide variety of entrees, appetizers and desserts.

Mr. B's is regularly rated one of Milwaukee's top steakhouses and was recently named one of the top 20 steakhouses in America by The Daily Meal.

Diner Reviews
  • "Great dining experience. We arrived a little early so bad we could have a drink in the bar. My wife ordered a Cosmo and I a rail whiskey straight up. The Cosmo was very good when she asked how I wanted my drink I said straight up. She said "Do you want that on ice?" Aahh ..rookies... Our meals were all fantastic, the house merlot was very good the service was excellent. ."

  • "Went for bus dinner (7 people) - good food, knowledgeable staff. However, we were seated at 7pm....and didn't get out until 9:20. Service could have been much faster to cut down on length of meal."

  • " The young hostess was very short with us and not friendly."

  • "My husband and I have dined at Mr. B's numerous times and found it to be quite enjoyable. Our most recent visit however was very disappointing. Booking our reservation online was very easy. Upon arrival at the restaurant we were unfortunately seated at what had to be the worst table in the house. It was towards the back, directly across from the kitchen and the hallway to access the bathrooms. On the other side of the wall partition was the trash can for the bar area. It was incredibly noisy in this area. Our view was of a brick wall. The waiter served my husband a martini that was 1/2 empty and when it was pointed out to him he launched into an excuse instead of just replacing the drink. My husband's Kobe steak was just average."

  • "Excellent food and service. I have never had a poor experience here. Scallops are the best!"

  • "During one of our many visits to Wisconsin (we lived her for many years), we dined at Mr. B's. It was the perfectly suited for relaxing and a fine dining experience. It is helpful, and a thing of beauty, to be shown a tray of steaks and provided information about each. The Bruschetta was the perfect beginning for the meal. The New York Strip was perfectly prepared, and delicious. Unlike some dining establishments, this Chef had a light (and appreciated) hand with the salt. The Sorbet provided a perfect ending to a wonderful meal. Tonya and Sarah provided service that was friendly, helpful and professional. They made the dining experience perfect."

  • "we enjoyed dinner for four at MR. B's. Great steaks, good but a bit distracted service. Nice place. We'll be back."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The past two times we've been to Mr. B's the service has been poor. Even though the restaurant was at 50% capacity we felt like we were rushed in and out. This is exactly what happened on our previous visit. Our waiter was not friendly and was very abrupt with us. We were given one roll and then never offered another. In fact, as soon as we were done with the one roll, he removed our small plates. The food was good, however the service overshadowed our visit. We will not be returning for awhile."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We have mixed experiences at this restaurant. Sometimes the food is exceptional and sometimes we leave disappointed. This is a steakhouse that has too much variability in steak preparation. They used to overcook our medium steaks routinely. The restaurant even went so far to have small table tents explaining to diners that the lighting makes steaks "appear overcooked". Clearly I wasn't the only one complaining. The table tents are thankfully gone but the my last steak was unfortunately completely raw in the middle. After two attempts to correct the temp on my $60 Wagyu filet the manager delivered my well done, shoe leather filet which was completely inedible. The manager comped but should have known better. We won't return."

  • "My food wasn't hot. You don't get the same dining experience that you do inside than outside. No steak cuts are brought to your table before they cook them. Kinda feel cheated outside but I figured its a health issue. I did enjoy sitting outside."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We enjoyed a glass of wine on the beautiful patio on a perfect summer evening. Dined indoors and enjoyed combos of filet and salmon, and filet and bacon-wrapped scallops. Service was excellent in all areas...indoors and out. Food was worth the upper end price tag and very nicely presented. My guest already asked to return to Mr. B's when she visits again."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "It's disappointing to not be able to order a 6 ounce filet that was prime. Some of us can't eat a lot but prefer a better cut of beef."

  • "Always a favorite for Steaks. The atmosphere is louder than most, so I would not recommend for romantic occasions. We celebrated a Birthday and it was perfect."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We have gone to Mr. B's many times and have always been pleased with our dinner. My husband always gets the porterhouse and I usually get the filet and scallops. This time I got the ribeye and it was a very good size and probably the best I ever had! The waiter and his assistant were very attentive but not obnoxious. The only negative is we were seated by the window towards the patio and when we looked outside we could see the back of the bar and the dirty dishes. We just made a point not to look outside but would maybe suggest some way of blocking that view with a curtain. This would not prevent us from visiting again!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Mr. B's is beyond compare for steak. You have to be prepared to spend some money on your evening. The steaks are amazing and the potatoes and sauces are flavorful and great accents to the meat and the bisque is the best I've had. While the restaurant is not meant for children, there is an "unpublished" kids' menu that you can request to order from if you are celebrating and don't want to spend $50 on a steak for a six year old. I love coming here for a special occasion and if you can sit outside an a warm night, there is a beautiful deck area. Brunch is also terrific and a little more family friendly than dinner."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "This is my go-to restaurant when I want the best. Oops! Not this time out. Steaks over-cooked, bone in filet was grizzle. No steak was cooked as ordered, and the shrimp scampi was not the best. This is not the usual Mr. B's. Yes, I'll keep going, but it was not a good night for food, and we could've used a bigger table. Asked, but nothing was done."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The bar was very nice and staff fantastic. The restaurant service and the staff was "ok" but kind of loud. Love this families group of restaurants but this time it seemed lacking."

  • "If you want a great steak,salad and drink make sure you go to Mr. B's and by the way the service was outstanding."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We once again, we had excellent food at Mr. B's, as we always do at Bartolotta restaurants. The calamari and goat cheese appetizers were amazing, the ginger pear martini delightful, and the filet and scallops top-notch. Service in the bar area (Nick) was great, very personable and helpful waiter. Service in the main dining area was quite disappointing for what we're accustomed to at Mr. B's. Our party sat with empty drinks, had to wait too long to order our entrees, rarely got "checked on," and the waitstaff seemed somewhat impatient or too busy to pay us much attention. When you spend over $300 at a restaurant, one expects a little better service. Good thing their chefs were "on" that night - it saved the evening."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "I had the mixed grill special which was a lamb chop, a pork chop and a small filet. Each piece was done exactly as ordered. Along with the Seafood Bisque is was a great meal. My wife had the veal chop and loved it. The drinks were good and the raspberry cheesecake made an excellent desert. Service was exceptional as it always is even though it was very busy."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "A first class experience as usually occurs on our frequent visits did not happen Tried to seat us at the worst table in the restaurant when it was empty at 5:30pm. Waitress seemed put out when we asked for a better table. When meal was served potatoes and steaks were cold. Guess all restaurants have a bad night and this was one."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "VERY DISAPPOINTED. WHEREAS THE WINE AND AMBIENCE WAS GREAT. OUR WAITER HAD A CHIP ON HIS SHOULDER AND OUR DATE NIGHT TURNED INTP CHUCKY CHEESES W/ ALL THE KIDS AT OUR "UPSCALE DINNER NIGHT". AFTER TWICE HAVING REQUESTED A QUIET SPOT -NOT TO BE SEATED NEXT TO THE SCREAMING TODDLER OR THE TWO OTHER NEWBORNS IN THE RESTAURANT-WHICH NOBODY HAD THE INSIGHT TO SEAT THEM TOGETHER BUT SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE RESTAURANT -WE FOUND A CORNER TABLE-THAT ROCKED OUR DRINKS EVERYTIME YOU MOVED D/T THE UNEVEN LEGS. OUR 2ND HALF OF THE SERVER DUO WAS CHARMING AT LEAST-BUT MY STEAK MUST HAVE WALKED FROM TEXAS-$43 FILET NO LESS-FED TO THE DOGS WHICH THEY ENJOYED! BECAUSE IT WAS SO TOUGH-SAVE YOUR $$ FOR THE BETTER STEAKHOUSES."

  • "No stranger to the Bartolatta reputation, I was not surprised at the level of service and quality of food. Some of the best steaks around. They charge appropriately, but it made a birthday celebration that much more special! My only complaint was the noise level started to get overwhelming about 7:30 and it made conversation a little difficult for a bigger group. I would highly recommend Mr. B's!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "I found the food was average in flavor. I had the Lamb Chops and my wife had the filet and scallops. Both dishes had a wonderful presentation, the look, the smell were both very appetizing. The Chops were good but not outstanding as was the fillet. The scallops were a bit over done but till had a good flavor. The appetizer was the most flavorful item out of our dinning experience which we had the crab cakes. The service was absolutely outstanding. Both servers were extremely knowledgeable and outgoing. I would give the establishment another chance just on the quality of the service alone."

  • "We were there for Father's Day - decided to sit on the patio at 7 p.m. (unfortunately we were seated by the back door looking out over the parking lot). We had 3 servers but service was very slow for some reason, almost like they forgot we were there. The salads, steaks, brussels sprouts and rosemary potatoes were all delicious. We often go there for their happy hour menu for food and drinks, especially in the nice weather so we can sit on the patio but this is the first time we have had dinner since they moved to this location many years ago. We will be back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We expected it to be crowded and very noisy but it was comfortably busy with no crying children around. The food, as always, was excellent and when the baked potato was unexpectedly bad in the middle, we received a replacement almost immediately. Well done service! No waiting when we arrived for our reservation. Overall, great experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "What could have been an outstanding experience was marred by subpar service. When dining at an upscale restaurant at these prices, the service should be calm, attentive, and on time. Instead, we found ourselves waiting for the next cocktail, waiting to order, and waiting for every next step. I understand some people like to make a night out of fine dining, but we were in a business dinner. Not rushing, but trying to move things along was impossible. Good food. Steak was extraordinarily good. Sides were above average."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "As always the food and service were impeccable. Will be going back again for sure."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Nice atmosphere, good service and good food. My wife loved her salmon, but my Angus NY strip steak was good but not great. It was perhaps a bit overdone (more toward medium well than medium), but it was still a nice steak. I was a little disappointed in the red wine sauce. Our waitress said the sauces would "complement, not overwhelm" our entree, but I would have liked a little more taste/substance; it was a bit too bland for me."

  • "Love to come here for our anniversary. The food is outstanding. The steaks are cooked just right and flavorful and the lamb chops are wonderful! The soups and salads sounded great but I just can't eat that much. The fresh bread was very good and the service was excellent. We enjoyed a Grasshopper ice cream drink for dessert. Yum!"
