“Eating, and hospitality in general, is a communion, and any meal worth attending by yourself is improved by the multiples with whom it is shared.”
— Jesse Browner, The Duchess Who Wouldn’t Sit Down

A restaurant is more than a place to serve a meal. It’s that communal space where customers also share the joy of good company. And like your food, the space must be just right — tasteful, appealing and a great value.

Berghammer Construction has built or remodeled more than two dozen restaurants in the Milwaukee area. Restaurateurs have relied on Berghammer because of our ability to capture the aesthetic appeal they envision while meeting the budgeting and scheduling parameters they insist upon.

Partnering with Berghammer and our design-build approach provides tighter control over costs and timelines by designing in the context of the budget. Let us show you how we can cook up a masterful space for your patrons.
