Update: Ryan Braun’s Waterfront Restaurant: SURG Restaurant Group New Owners

Update: January 1, 2010, 4:48pm:

The SURG Restaurant Group, owner of seven area restaurants and bars, will purchase Ryan Braun’s Waterfront Grill.

Ryan Braun’s Waterfront Grill opened in Spring, 2010, which was opening day for the Brewers’ season, and closed its doors around December 1, 2010.

The SURG Restaurant Group currently own and operate Carnevor, Charro in Milwaukee and Brookfield, Umami Moto, Distil, Mikey’s and Nuovo Centanni.

SURG plans to re-open Ryan Braun’s in March, 2011. Gift cards issued by the previous owners will be honored.

Stay tuned to for any updates.

Update: Saturday, December 4, 2010, 11:36 am:

While dining in the Third Ward Friday night I walked past Ryan Braun’s restaurant and noticed that a new sign had been posted on the front door stating that they will  be re-opening soon under new management.

I was so happy to see the new sign as we do not need anymore prime restaurant real estate space on our river (or anywhere else) sitting empty.

Stay tuned to for the latest on Ryan’s Braun’s grand re-opening. – Andrew Swofford

Ryan Braun’s Waterfront Restaurant closed its doors over the weekend  when it posted a sign on its front door stating that the restaurant was temporarily closing because it was having heating problems.

On Tuesday night, WISN 12 did a story about the ‘temporary’  closing. You can view the report at

SCREENSHOT OF RYAN BRAUN'S WATERFRONT RESTAURANT WEBSITE: Today, tried to access the restaurant's website (, but the webpage brought up an 'Error 404' page which means the website is down.

Ryan Braun’s Waterfront Restaurant opened April 5, 2010 (which was opening day for the Milwaukee Brewers) in the former space that housed Fratello’s, on the Milwaukee River.
