Eat Local:Think Global
At Engine Company 3 we are committed to providing fresh, sustainable, locally-sourced food and drink at a great value. We are fully immersed in the Family Farm way of life and work in close cooperation with the most prolific taste-makers and food producers in Wisconsin and surrounding communities. As with our sister restaurant, La Merenda, Chef Sandroni takes his inspiration from a global palette of exciting flavors - both sweet and savory. Our renovated Cream City Brick firehouse offers a unique glimpse into the past of this historic neighborhood with an opportunity for both young and old to view a time long since passed.
If you would like to make reservations, we require reservations to be made at least 24 hours in advance.
*We do not accept reservations for the same day*
Brunch reservations!? Yes, we always recommend reservations. While we do keep space available for walk-in guests, space is limited and dining without a reservation is strictly first come, first served. Forgot to make a reservation? Don’t worry, we have a lovely space for you to enjoy one of our brunch cocktails or a fresh brewed VALENTINE coffee at our upstairs bar and lounge area.
Large parties, please note - we have limited seating options available to you. If your group size is 6 or more, we ask that you call during normal business hours and speak with one of our hosts to book your table. Due to building constraints, we are unable to seat parties over 12 guests (including children) at one table.
If inquiring after hours, please call 414-226-5695 and leave a detailed message including, name, phone number, party size, date/time preferred, and any special needs or requests. Our host staff will follow up with you the following business day.
