The BMO Harris Bradley Center announced the newly renovated Turner Hall Restaurant will mark its official reopening to the public on Friday by bringing back its iconic Friday fish fry.
The restaurant closed several years ago and was recently renovated by the BMO Harris Bradley Center under an agreement with the Milwaukee Turners and the Turner Ballroom Preservation Trust.
“What better way to celebrate the reopening of the historic Turner Hall Restaurant than to highlight the return of another real Milwaukee tradition – the famous Friday fish fry at Turner’s,” said BMO Harris Bradley Center president Steve Costello. “So many people have told us how much they have missed this restaurant. Milwaukee is very much about tradition, and we know Turner’s will once again become a great gathering place for those on their way to and from BMO Harris Bradley Center events, Turner Ballroom shows and other activities downtown.”
General manager Rob Koch, chef Thomas Peschong and bar manager Kirby Wachniak are overseeing the renewed Turner Hall Restaurant.
“We’ve created a menu filled with familiar foods that have made Turner’s popular among Milwaukeeans, while offering some unique new flavors they’ll also enjoy,” Peschong said. “I think our customers will enjoy the variety of food we are serving amid the wonderful renovations that bring Turner’s back to life.”
“We’ve assembled a great team of professionals to reopen Turner Hall Restaurant and help infuse the energy and service that people remember,” Koch said. “Turner’s will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday and help enhance the dining and entertainment experience downtown. Turner Hall Restaurant is once again that comfortable place that Milwaukeeans remember to enjoy great food with friends and family before or after the game or concert, or anytime you’re having a night out on the town.”
Turner Hall Restaurant is located at 1038 North Fourth Street directly across the street from the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
