April 13, 2017 – West Bend, WI – ION Sports Pub, 1102 E. Paradise Drive, in West Bend will be opening in a couple weeks. The restaurant is a partnership between Oscar Steinbauer Jr. and Nora Sanchez.
The pair have been working with their families to revamp the former Bender’s Sports Bar. There’s decorative strip lighting above and below the bar, new carpet, and the addition of 17 big-screen TVs.
New signage will be put in place on April 21 and the restaurant will officially open Monday, April 24.
For the past few weeks Steinbauer and Sanchez have been working on everything from staff uniforms to craft beer selections to the new menu.
Below is a sneak peek at the desserts.
In an earlier interview Steinbauer said, “We’re going to have a small menu and we’ll specialize in gourmet burgers, pizza, wings and fish fries on Friday.”
I’ve seen the menu and it’s anything BUT small.
The beer selections will be standard along with IPAs and Guinness. ION Sports pub will open 11 a.m. for lunch and dinner.
