The Bartolotta Restaurants Launches The Commodore

The Bartolotta Restaurants, the well-known restaurant and catering group in the Greater Milwaukee region, is set to welcome The Commodore – A Bartolotta Restaurant. The fine dining restaurant and elevated catering venue on Nagawicka Lake is set to open in Summer 2023.

The Commodore – A Bartolotta Restaurant, with a design inspired by the yacht clubs of the 1920’s, will revitalize the historic waterfront property. (The venue name itself is taken from classic yacht clubs, where the leader is known as the commodore.) The space was recently home to Seven Seas restaurant and once served as Hasslinger’s Pleasant View Hotel & Resort when it opened in 1905.

It will be a multi-level destination with picture-worthy views of the water and sunsets, and promises to provide guests with an inviting, comfortable and celebratory atmosphere. In addition to the elegant main dining space, the upper level will make a perfect destination for large groups and gatherings.

“This 117-year-old building is a living time capsule of Nagawicka Lake and the Lake Country community surrounding it, and The Commodore – A Bartolotta Restaurant will serve as the bridge between the past we preserve and the future memories we will make,” says The Bartolotta Restaurants owner and co-founder, Chef Paul Bartolotta, in a press release. “Together with our partners, David [Herro] and Jay [Franke], we will bring new life to this building and create a dining experience that is truly unique to Lake Country and the Greater Milwaukee area.”
