Dec. 3, 2018 – Barton, WI – One item on Monday night’s Licensing Committee agenda involves Joseph J. Stefanko and consideration for his Original Class B Combination License.
Stefanko owns the Moonlighting property, 326 Commerce Street, in West Bend.
It was Nov. 12, 2018 when word spread that the tavern/restaurant closed and was listed for sale with broker/owner Adam Williquette of American Commercial Real Estate in West Bend.
The tavern/restaurant was founded in 1995 and has been a popular restaurant in the Barton area ever since.
Williquette said Stefanko is going through the process to retain the license just in case he finds a buyer.
Currently the property is still listed for sale.
UPDATE: The licensing commitee approved the license to Stefanko. “One way or another it will reopen,” said Stefanko.

“With my strong ties to the area and involvement in the community, I am both happy and sad Joe has picked my firm to represent him in a sale of this iconic Barton landmark,” said Williquette. “It has always been sad to see business move out of the Barton area, but I am confident we will find a buyer who will get it back up and running and continue/start a thriving business at this location again.”
