Getting married soon? Something different is waiting for you at Joey Buona’s Restaurant in historic downtown Milwaukee. Full of old-world charm and Tuscan warmth with over-sized windows, Cream City brick archways, Tiffany fixtures, a beautiful leather-faced bar, wine colored drapery and so much more, you’ll hardly need to spend a dime on décor as the beauty of the room speaks for itself.

The unique layout of the banquet space allows for guests to sneak away to the lounge room for a few private words or relax on the oversized leather furniture while the rest of your guests are on the other side of the banquet space dancing the night away on the parquet dance floor.

Last but not least you will have your very own Event Manager to walk you through every step of the way and a professional staff of Banquet Servers to execute a flawless experience.

Where do I even begin?! From the first time we walked into Joey's and met Amanda (their wedding coordinator) on the day we were going around to all of the venues I had researched and liked, we knew that was the place! If you are looking for a warm, loving, romantic, classy, elegant, yet a little rustic venue this is the place. Being Italian myself, it also brought my ethnic roots to the evening. I am a person that hates to make tons of decision, at Joey's you don't have to worry about that, they have everything you could ever want at a venue. Amanda will sit with you and plan out everything and help you to have a plan and give you recommendations for any other vendors you may need. Seeing as Joey's is so beautiful on its own, the only things I had to decide on were flowers, a backdrop for the ceremony and any other little touches I wanted to add. Let me talk about the food!!!! OH MY GOSH! The food is amazing! All of my guest were over joked about how good the food was...who walks away talking about food at weddings...we did!!!! Joey Buona's was everything that I could have dreamed of AND MORE! I have to say one more time...Amanda is THE BEST as well as her surrounding staff!!!! I thank them all!!!

We used Joey Buona's for our rehearsal dinner. Being from an Italian family, I have high expectations for Italian food. Joey B's food was very good, and impressed our guests. The serving staff was phenomenal, and fulfilled our every request above and beyond expectation. My only negative comments are that the room was a bit tight for the group - perhaps different table shapes would have corrected that (we had round tables); and there was a group seated on the other side of the curtain that blocked off our room, which we had specifically asked to not have done (which they confirmed to us that space would not be used to help our event be more quiet). Otherwise, a pleasant experience for an informal rehearsal dinner.

We held our wedding reception this past weekend at Joey Buona's and it was absolutely amazing! We got so many compliments on the food, the location, and the service. I have several family members that came up from Chicago and they especially were very impressed with the venue. People also loved the family style dinner. We went for the Casanova bar package and were very pleased with that as well.
Amanda the event coordinator is fabulous, she has a very quick response time and will do anything within reason to help make your wedding vision a reality. She even let our DJ use his fog machine! Because we along with both of our mothers wanted to help with everything, Amanda had a lot of people communicating with her, and she was extremely understanding and made everyone feel a part of the process.
All in all, we had our dream wedding and would highly recommend Joey's for a venue. It is an excellent value compared to others in the same area, and we heard nothing but great things from all of our guests.

We loved working with Joey's! We booked the venue over a year in advance as we wanted to hold both our ceremony and reception at the same site as we had a lot of family traveling in town. Joey's was super accomodating! We had gone to a wedding there a couple years earlier and loved EVERYTHING about it. The atmosphere, the decor, the vintage feel, the staff--we could not have asked for a better venue. The only issue we ran into was with responsiveness, which is because during the year we booked the venue went through three even planners, which was not expected. Luckily, none of information was lost in translation and Amanda, the new event coordinator, made our day unforgettable. She was super attentive and very respsonsive to all of our needs. We also want to thank Holly, the manage on duty that night--she was increidible in all that she did for us that night. If you want a great venue with the BEST italian food you'll ever have, pick Joey's--you won't regret it!

We were absolutely blown away by the quality of service and the quality of food that Joey Buona's provided for our wedding reception. The staff was so kind and accommodating on our wedding day, as well as the months leading up to our wedding. They have the kindest and sweetest staff. On top of that, the food was fantastic! Two of our favorite dishes were the Tuscan Harvest salad and the Saltimbocca stuffed chicken. Delicious. Joey Buona's was an all around phenomenal caterer that exceeded all of our expectations.
