Overview

Awe inspiring. Grandiose. Breathtaking. The Grain Exchange elicits all these responses and more, with its unparalleled beauty and historic decor. A three story, nearly 10,000 sq. Ft. Room, located in downtown Milwaukee's Mackie Building, showcases soaring ceilings, frescos, handsome granite, limestone and sandstone. There is a 175 ft. Bell tower in the center of the room, yet the focus of this outstanding facility is ultimately the shining performance of Bartolotta Catering and Events. Superseding the standards of this majestic room, we offer four-star, restaurant quality food with unprecedented service for wedding receptions, gatherings and corporate events. As the exclusive caterer for this location, we strive to create a unique experience from beginning to the perfect end. Whether social or business, we have event coordinators on staff who will assist in facilitating each and every detail.

The Grain Exchange is located right across the street from the Hilton Garden Inn. It is a beautiful venue for a wedding, with plenty of space. They could have added some extra help during the open bar; otherwise, appeared to be staffed well throughout the...More

So why would I give this place an average rating when the main course was amazing. Well we were here for a wedding. The butler passed appetizers were sparse. They did start coming around a bit more right before the main course seating. Maybe they...More

Worth the 10 minutes it takes to see the great hall. Check out the murals, which tells the history of Wisconsin.

We went to the Grain Exchange for a wedding reception. The service was great and the food was fantastic. Our experience was so good that we will return for our wedding anniversary for dinner.

Worth a quick stop --- They usually have the building open during Doors Open MKE in Sep, so pop in if you are in the area.

An awesome venue if price is no object. The drinks, wait staff and meals were outstanding. For the larger group they had food stations. They provided enough variety and every dish was superior in flavor.
