The Bartolotta Restaurants are now the sole owners of the Harbor House, 550 N. Harbor Dr. The New England-style seafood restaurant was previously owned by The Bartolotta Restaurants and The Endeavors Group, headed by the late Michael Cudahy.
Cudahy purchased the entity in 2009 and later partnered with Joe and Paul Bartolotta of The Bartolotta Restaurants.
With Joe’s passing in 2019 and Michael’s in 2022, the time was right for new ownership.
“We are forever grateful to Mike Cudahy for his unwavering partnership,” said The Bartolotta Restaurants Owner and Co-Founder, Paul Bartolotta. “Because of his belief in us, we had the opportunity to open Bacchus – A Bartolotta Restaurant; partner with Discovery World as its exclusive caterer; and develop, operate and partner at Harbor House."
Added Bartolotta, “As we reflect with heartfelt gratitude and appreciation on Mike and my beloved brother Joe, we carry the immense responsibility to build upon the legacy of these two Milwaukee giants, who made a lasting impact in the community by protecting, preserving and enhancing the city’s most valuable asset: our beautiful Lakefront."
Harbor House is located on the Lake Michigan waterfront and adjacent to Discovery World. It features an indoor dining room and bar, along with an outdoor patio with unique views of the lakefront and surrounding city.
“As the time for transition has arrived, we are exceedingly pleased to hand the baton to Paul Bartolotta and the Bartolotta team, knowing that there is no one better to lead Harbor House into the future," says Kevin Lindsey, Manager of The Endeavors Group.
Harbor House is open Wednesdays through Mondays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., with 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. lunch service on Saturdays and brunch on Sundays.
