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 patio for summer evenings! Full menu service."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Corn and seafood bisque good to the last drop. Calamari always awesome. Great porterhouse. Chocolate dessert great finale."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "I took my daughter to Mr. B's for dinner before she left for school out-of-state, and it was a fine dinner. Steaks were good (tho not great) as were the appetizer, soup & sides. Overall a very nice time with my daughter."
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "Service was slow -- not up to standards of such a status of a restaurant"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I've had the opportunity to dine several times at Mr. B's. The steaks are awesome and service has always been spectacular. Robust wine list for paring with your meal."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "My wife and I been to Mr. B's three or four times before hand and had great service and food. This time not so much. The waitress only stopped by maybe four or five times the whole night. The waitress took almost 40 minutes to take our order. She let her helper do most of the work at our table. My steak came almost well, not medium rare like I ordered. They did prepare another steak for me, but nothing came off the bill at all. By the time I got my new steak my wife was done eating. She had to seat and watch me eat as I did for her. Love the place but not sure if I will go back. That experience left bad taste in my mouth."

  • "This is by all means the best restaurant around The meat with its special seasonings is always fantastic Just a great experience all around"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "The petite filet I ordered had an inch of fat around it. Not quite sure why they butterflied it when it's a petite. Also, my fiancé had the bone in filet which is supposed to be lean, also had a lot of fat on it. I've never been served a filet that fatty before. The server acted like it was normal. Everyone at the table agreed with me. Would not be my first, second or third choice for a nice filet."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We have dined at Mr. B's on numerous occasions and enjoy the food and wine list. The seating selection is always a challenge due to the high noise level in the main dining room and high traffic on the quiet alleyway. When we do not have guests we will go back to the high tops in the bar. The service is always better on busy nights in the dining room."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Service was slow for how busy they were. Nothing special about the entire meal. I have eaten better steaks for much less money. No seasoning."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "My wife and I went to Mr. B's for an anniversary dinner and couldn't find anything to fault with the meal or the service. The steaks were fabulous and my crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had. The stack of onion rings and the salads were great and even the grilled Brussels sprouts that my wife decided to try had a nice grilled flavor with the oil taking some of the cabbage-like taste away. Did some broccoli at home the next night on the grill and it was also delicious; so I learned something. Prices were appropriate for the quality and actually a bargain compared to the highly advertised steak house chains that I've been to around the country."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "If you like Spinach salad with hot bacon dressing this is the place to go. Not only spinach, but onions, mushrooms and tomatoes. A must try."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Loved the filet and I am not really that much of a carnivore. Loved the Caymus special too! Great food and wine pairing."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "The service was very attentive and the food was presented and prepared perfectly."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "It was nice, but weird, at the same time to have a "team" of waiters---it seemed the 1st one (lady) was only there to explain the menu, answer questions, and take the order, then she never stopped by/barely said Hi the rest of night as she passed by. Then it was obvious the 2nd waiter (guy) was there to service, clean up, and collect payment. We wonder why we weren't offered the conversation about the rewards program by the wait staff. But it was a very nice touch to bring out champagne/dessert since you knew it was our Anniversary. That was unexpected surprise. With the amount of money spent on food/drinks--I would have thought facilities (like bathroom paint on door and automatic paper towel machine) would have been a bit nicer."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Having eaten here many times we know what to expect and were not let down. The drinks were very good, the appetizers delicious and the steaks and veal chop were cooked as ordered. everyone was very satisfied."

  • "My wife and I dined at Mr. B's on her birthday. The service was outstanding and the food was great. I would not have wanted to change anything."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "My husband and I found Mr. B's to be fairly mediocre. The restaurant itself felt fairly outdated. The food was good but not so outstanding as to warrant the prices. The service was timely but the staff clearly was minimally interested. Overall our experience was middle of the road and we won't be making a return trip."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My wife and I enjoyed a great night out for our 5th wedding anniversary. The food was very good but the service was what really makes this a special place. We will definitely be coming back in the future. Would highly recommend."

  • "Our waiter, Jeffrey, was amazingly attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. He made or anniversary a night to remember."

  • "One of a small handful of excellent steak restaurants in S.E. Wisconsin. Keep up the good work!"
    Dined on 7/30/2014
  • "First visit, appreciate attentive wait staff and detail to explaination of meat cuts on menu. Background music a bit loud @ times. Very nice touch to have 2 glasses of champagne and petite/light dessert served to us without being ordered as we were here for our anniversary. This gesture was a surprise and respectfully served. Will definitely return and reccomend to others."

  • "We sat outside and it was wonderful But that is normal for Bartolotta's. The evening was very romantic, the music was great, and two old people in their early 70's felt like we were on the streets of Paris again. The service and food was wonderful, attention given to us as we were the only couple in the house. Thank you, we will be back."

  • "1st time, and the food was great. Tables were a bit close. Service was very good."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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
  • "My wife and I decided to try Mr. B's for our anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. Service was excellent as was the food. The crustacean bisque was one of the finest that we have ever tasted. The steaks were tender and cooked exactly to our order. The triple chocolate tart for dessert was the perfect ending to a perfect meal. The waitstaff was friendly, helpful, and attentive without being at all intrusive. Anyone looking for a memorable evening will be hard pressed to find a better choice than Mr. B's."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
