During a tour Serwatt showed how he gutted the space and was making headway with upgrades such as an ADA compliant bathroom and more functional space with an entrance off the riverwalk. “Right after July 4th the whole west side of the riverwalk will be knocked out,” Serwatt said.

Serwatt has partnered with local chef Katie Pozorski and plans to open the bar and grill along with an event center. Neighbors will be familiar with Pozorski as she previously worked at Wallace Lake Supper Club and Sysco.

Tracey Serwatt started in the restaurant industry working at Champs, a chain restaurant in Brookfield, and then at Tunes and later Club Baja in Germantown.

“The location has been completely gutted. All new plumbing, all new electrical, we’re putting a large investment into the property to open a new venue,” said Serwatt.

Another big part of the business will be the patio seating along the riverwalk. “We’ll have roughly 15 tables; it’ll be fenced in,” Serwatt said.

Serwatt and his wife said this venture along with the theme, “Copper River is something downtown West Bend really hasn’t seen before.”

Barring any supply chain shortages, Serwatt is planning to open the second week in August 2022. Stay tuned, the new menu will be released shortly.
