First time to the Mequon location, food and service just as good as Brookfield. 8 people, everyone enjoyed their meal. Birthday dessert was a great touch.

So I’m a big Joey Gerard’s fan. My husband and I never had a bad meal there. We waited 3 months after Mr.B’s opening to finally check it out. So, I was disappointed with our first visit to Mr. B’s Mequon. Our server was ok (not great), our salads were good but our entrees took too long to be served and were mediocre at best. The steaks for a very premium price, cooked in that fabulous oven they rave about looked like what I prepare at home. My whitefish plopped on top of mashed potatoes/spinach had no semblance of a presentation again for a premium price. Overall, I don’t think we’ll be back and we were Joey Gerard’s regulars.

For crying out loud why do the tables have to be so damn close together I felt like I was having a conversation with 6 strangers. Just so they can fit in extra seats to make more money. The food is absolutely delicious but the ambiance is horrible.

We stopped for a drink first and the bar seats were full but there were high tops available. Bartender came to take our order promptly. We transferred our tab to the dinner table. We were served by 2 waiters. Never rushed but also not ignored. Higher pricing but the food was excellent.

Drinks, appetizers and service were excellent, but I was mildly disappointed in the 8oz filet. It was a little dry, which surprised me since I've had steaks at Bartolotta restaurants before and they were delicious. I ordered it cooked medium rare and the outside and inside seemed more done than that. I ate it, so it wasn't that terrible, but I'm used to near perfect steaks at their restaurants.

We were celebrating 3 November birthdays. There was a hand written card wishing the birthday guests a very happy birthday and thanking us for celebrating at Mr. B’s. I had requested a quiet area with a round table. They put us is the small dining room. It was perfect! They even gave us a round table so it was possible for the 7 of us to talk and see everyone! Then, after dinner our cute wIter surprised us with a big variety of complimentary mouth watering desserts!

Exquisite meal and service. Prices are on the higher side at $50 per plate average but we'll worth the cost. Our steaks were prepared perfectly, the drink menu had a wide selection of simple to complicated drinks so something for everyone and our servers were very knowledgeable and professional. Five stars through and through.

The food was better than when they were Joey Girard, but the service was uneven and only average (the next table had better service - e.g., we had to ask for bread while they did not and also were offered additional servings; our servers did not ask if I wanted more wine until my glass was empty). The pace was deliberate (which was good - our meal lasted 2 hrs) but our servers not attentive.
The seating was crowded and noise level was high, so I would not suggest this place for a romantic dinner.
The food may be expensive but we would come back - but only for a special, non-intimate occasion.

We had a very bad experience. The service was odd. Someone else's cell phone was on the table, charging when we were led to the table. The hostess just stood there, not knowing what to do, for about a minute, despite the fact that there were many empty tables nearby. Eventually she figured out that she should remove the phone. Although the restaurant has a "steak cart," where the cuts are displayed and which is used to describe the various options, this cart was not offered to us. Nor were the specials described. A various points during dinner, we were left with odd silverware combinations (i.e. a cocktail fork and spoon, when salad was on the table, or two knives but no forks when the entree was served).

The worst part was that we waited AN HOUR between the service of our salad and our entrees. This was explained blithely and smilingly away as a "glitch with the kitchen software." When the entrees arrived, the steak was overcooked and the lobster's texture was mushy (and the server didn't bring the drawn butter -- until asked.) Everything was also under-seasoned -- like the kitchen was afraid of salt, or horseradish in the cocktail sauce, or butter in the whipped potatoes.

The experience was SO bad that -- without me saying ANYTHING to the staff -- the manager comped the entire bill. (We left a tip for our server in any event -- they need to make a living too.) That was very generous and kind of them and completely unexpected. But all in all, I would much preferred to have have had a pleasant, but expensive experience, rather than a free, but horrible one. I wish we had enjoyed our time (we were trying to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary), but we didn't. I do appreciate the act of comping the bill, and we will give Mr. B's another chance -- but not on a special occasion.

Our reservation was at 7 and we had to wait until 730 until we were seated, so they bought our drinks. Service was attentive and special. Since it was our anniversary they provided a Champaign toast and complimentary dessert. We were treated well. However my husband makes better steak at home. Mine was ordered medium rare and came medium well. Mealy at best. The salmon was overdone too and dry. The sides and salads were better than the main course. My husband's French onion soup was too sweet and syrupy. Overall better than when it was a Joey Gerards but they have a ways to go yet.

We were there for a special celebration on a Saturday night. The waiters work in pairs and even with two, we felt forgotten. They appear to concentrate on their larger tables. The restaurant was so loud we couldn't hear each other. The restaurant should consider seating the large parties in the back room.

If you order the porterhouse for two, be advised it comes with one serving of potato and one serving of vegetable.

We had a reservation at Mr. B's on a Wednesday evening to celebrate our anniversary, as we have done previously when it was Joey Gerards. Food and service were excellent, as before. However, unlike our prior visits to Joey Gerards, our total experience this time was very much a disappointment. The new menu has limited choices, with almost no vegetables or chicken or a simple side salad. Too many tables made for tight quarters, making it difficult for patrons and servers to navigate, as well as contributing to the noise level. Bottom line -- we expected more fine dining at this price point.

My husband and I went to Mr. B's Mequon with our 2 daughters. 3 of us ordered steaks - 2 rare, 1 medium. All were slightly overcooked. We also ordered the brussel sprouts, which were undercooked for our liking. One daughter ordered ribs which she said were delicious and the portion was so generous she had plenty for the next day.

The new atmosphere was very nice and our server, Chris, was absolutely the best.

We will go back again as we have been to the location in Brookfield where I had the best steak I have ever had.

I want to like Mr. B’s but it just isn’t hitting the mark. 2nd time here - service is good, drinks are good, people are nice plus it is close to home. However, they simply can’t make a steak very good and is well below in taste and quality compared to what you can get at Carnevor, Capital Grille, or Mo’s downtown. I don’t know if it’s the chef or the equipment but on my 2nd trip the steaks just taste very bland and certainly not what you expect for a $40-$50 price tag. They need to figure this out.

My husband and I went for a date night. Food was delicious, service was great. We sat in the back room, so it was quiet which was nice. Front room is a little noisier, but not obnoxious. We would have been fine sitting there, too. This was our 2nd trip to Mr. B's but first time at the Mequon location. It's awesome - we are big fans.
