Delicious Dining at Artisan 179


What could be better than indulging in creative cuisine, unique cocktails, and superior service? How about doing that with a gorgeous Pewaukee Lake view?

At Artisan 179, you will experience just that. Restaurant owners Carrie Boehm and Ted Anderson are driven by a passion for creating cuisine and cocktails with the freshest ingredients from local vendors. It’s more than a place to eat. It is a community of food and drink enthusiasts, artists, and musicians. 

In fact, Artisan 179 has live music every Thursday through Saturday. When the weather warms up, musicians play on the patio, so guests inside and outside, as well as passersby, enjoy the vibe of a live performance.

To welcome summertime, Artisan 179 has created menu options to celebrate Wisconsin’s beauty and bounty. Whether you partake inside or dine al fresco, prepare to be impressed. Check out these irresistible choices.
