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.

    Disappointed with the table -- requested a quiet, romantic table to celebrate 30+ year wedding anniversary at the time of the reservation. Made the reservation a month prior to the date and was hoping for a better table than what was presented to us. The restaurant was extremely busy and very loud which made it difficult to have a conversation. The service was great and the food good -- but the table location put me in a mood where it was hard for me to have an enjoyable time -- especially considering I dropped over $200 for this dinner. I will not come back to this restaurant for a special occasion.

    I had always been told that Bartolatta restaurants were over-rated, however I was given a gift card as an appreciation gift a while back so decided to take my wife out for a special dinner at Mr B's. Well I didn't think anything was over-rated, the overall experience was excellent. Started with a wine. They've got a nice lengthy wine list. I will say some of the wines were over-priced (as much as $25 more per bottle than the same bottle at other restaurants we had visited recently). The wine service was not as formal as one might expect from a finer restaurant but they did open the bottle table-side and provided a proper tasting. For an appetizer we had the cheese plate. The cheeses were very good as were the fruits, preserves and especially the pecans that came with it. Just wish the cheese portions had been a little bigger and that instead of raisin walnut bread they had instead included some type of toast. For entrees, I ordered the NY Strip with a topping of shrimp scampi, my wife ordered the twin lobster tails. All was amazing. With the steak I got the horseradish sauce which was very tasty. I don't normally like sauces on my steak but I couldn't stop dipping into this one. If you find yourself at Mr B's don't skip desert. I had the raspberry cheesecake and my wife ordered the Big B. They should have a warning in the menu that the Big B serves up to 4, the thing was HUGE!! Both desserts were just what you'd expect given the quality of the rest of the food. Highly recommend Mr. B's the next time you want the service and quality of a formal steakhouse in a little more casual setting.

    My wife and I went to Mr. B's for our anniversary, and once again, they did not disappoint. The staff is friendly, the food is excellent, and no one is in a hurry to get you out in order to turn the table over. The wine list is colossal, but unpretentious and includes bottles for most price points. The staff took the extra step to include a delicious slice of cheesecake to help us celebrate the anniversary. We'll be back again.

    My wife and I had a great experience and great food. The service was the best I have seen in a long time. A manager came to us and informed us my wife's steak did not look appropriate so they are going to prepare her a new one. To make it up to us the manager provided us with a Shrimp Coctail. We thought this was outstanding customer service. This is on one incident of Outstanding Customer Service. We will be back.

    We liked the fact that there was plenty of room between the tables. The Rosemary roasted potatoes were delicious. Nice that they offered a larger glass of moscato, but it was rather expensive. Also nice that they offered a smaller sundae for dessert. The wait staff was terrific.

    Mr. B is supposed to be a prime steakhouse, but the steaks were overcooked. Otherwise, wine and salad and vegetables were top-notch. Faint praise for a prime steakhouse.

    I love Mr. B's; this is the place my wife and I visit on special occasions. The food is world class and the ambience makes for a perfect romantic dinner. On my latest visit, however, the bone in filet was subpar. I have never been served a steak at Mr. B's that was anything less than excellent until this occasion. The meat itself was thick with a ribbon of hard fat. I don't really blame the chef or the restaurant, but I just got a bad piece of meat - a rarity at Mr. B's, but, apparently, it does happen.

    Hard to write a great review when we were not "wowed" by the quality of the beef. When I buy Waygu beef and pay $59 to $69 for a steak I expect them and the overall experience to fantastic. Unfortunately it was not. The staff were attentive and friendly, the restaurant was very nice, not overly loud, clean etc. as you would expect from a higher end place. Just disapointed with the beef. Not every dining experience is a five out of five..........

    My fiancé had been wanting to check out Mr B's for a while, so I surprised him for our 5 year anniversary. When I first walked in I wasn't impressed. I was expecting a more romantic ambiance with upscale decor. Instead, the lighting was bright and the tables had tacky green checkered table clothes with white paper on top. Our server started out great by going over the menu and showing us the meat cart. However, after he took our order we didn't see him again. It was quite upsetting because he never even came to see how our food was or if we needed anything. Then, we had ask expediter for the check! Overall Mr. B's was a fair experience. The service from our server lacked, the ambiance was subpar, but food was delicious.

    I have been at Mr. B's at least a dozen times in the past 8 years and i was always satisfied with the food and service. But this time the quality of the food and the mixed up orders were reason for me to think about returning! I ordered the Mr B's Filet and received the Bone In Filet They took it back but i ordered it medium and it came back charred on top and cooked medium well. I did not eat it. Also, lobster was ordered and we had to ask for melted butter. ?And, the Porterhouse Steak could not even be cut with a sharp knife!! They did not make me pay for anything but i went there hungry and left hungry.

    I'd been to Mr. B's before and loved it. However, this visit wasn't very good: my steak was undercooked, my companion's steak was overcooked. In addition, there was too much grizzle and fat on my steak that left 30% of it unedible. There are better steak places in the area that aren't as expensive. I was disappointed.

    We were disappointed how long it took to be served. We waited 25 minutes to have our order taken and another 10 minutes just to get bread. Clearly they were understaffed and the workers were running around frantically. Mr. B's was always our go to place to celebrate special occasions for many years. However, we've had these same problems the last couple times we've been there, so it is unlikely we will return.

    A little more pricey than a neighborhood restaurant, okay, substantially more, but its a great dining experience. Excellent service as well. Rosemary potatoes were perfect and the bread is also excellent. Decent beer selection but not a great beer place. Fireplace in the bar sets a nice tone for the winter months.

    Although the restaurant is beautiful we were taken to a room that opens up probably just on Saturday night or holidays. Our table was in the corner and couldn't enjoy the interior. My wife ordered her steak medium and it came out medium well . This is the third time its happen to her. We've sent it back last time but the same thing happen. I ordered the veal chop and wanted it medium rare, but the waitress suggested medium. She said most people order it that way. Well when it came out it was medium well also. My wife and I look at each other and almost laugh. We have been here 3 times and will not being returning as there are to many other steakhouses to choose from .

    We are not "foodies" or connoisseurs but we understand great food, good service and bang for the buck. This was our first visit to Mr. B's and we loved it. The service was impeccable, the table immaculate and the food excellent. We chose to forgo wine for the evening but did avail ourselves of a cocktail from the bar that is apparently staffed by first-rate bartenders. Being of the old school the ladies had Brandy Old Fashions while I choose my favorite Perfect Bandy Manhattan; all were very good. As we were celebrating my wife's birthday we had the "birthday special" dessert that was also excellent. If I were to search for any disparaging thoughts the only thing I could come with is the striping in the parking lot is faded.

    The restaurant is a great place and I'm sure the other steaks are great, but I tried a rib-eye for the first time and was not impressed. I normally have a NY strip, however the description of the rib-eye having more flavor was very inviting. The selection of steak had too much marbling (fat) for my liking. Each bite was filled with fat, which pretty much ruined my dinner. I will visit the restaurant in the future in hopes of having a delicious NY Strip.
