Wisconsin Ave. in Okauchi. The restaurant, which opened in January 2022, has a wide variety of small plates that can be shared.
The restaurant is owned by chefs Bryant Johnson and Kimberly Stark. Before they opened their own restaurant, Bryant was the manager of Hoo Leeds in Oconomowoc and his Liquid his therapy. In addition to running restaurants, Bryant also does catering.
The atmosphere inside Bryant’s On The Round is very cozy and rustic. There is seating inside or outside on the beautiful patio.
They also have a very nice bar where you can enjoy cocktails, wine and beer while you dine.
My waitress name was Nancy. She was very bright and she knew a lot about the menu. She said that before Bryant’s On the Round entered the building, there was also a restaurant called Spitfire and a restaurant called Penny Lane. He said there were ham-wrapped jalapeños, buffalo chicken meatloaf, and three-cut burgers.
I ordered the Buffalo Chicken Meatloaf. Topped with buffalo sauce and blue cheese.
Served with roasted garlic mashed potatoes. The meatloaf was spicy and delicious. The mashed potatoes were out of this world. They were so creamy and buttery.
Then I tried the 7 Cheese Mac and Cheese, a creamy blend of seven cheeses topped with Ritz cracker crumbs.
It’s cheese paradise and I loved it. Then I tried their chicken enchiladas lasagne.It was the perfect combination of seasoning and flavor.My meal was amazing.
For dessert, I tried the key lime pie. It was amazing. The crust was perfectly crunchy and had a very refreshing lime taste. It was definitely worth ordering. This pie is the chef’s recipe for his nine-year-old daughter. Please try.
It was an honor to meet Chef Lee. He was very friendly and talked me through the menu items I tried.
If you’re near Lake Okauchie, be sure to check out Bryant’s On The Round. They serve great food and the staff are very friendly. Book in advance to ensure a table.
