Triskele’s, a bar and restaurant in a quiet part of Walker’s Point, away from the business districts along S. 2nd St. and S. 5th St., is for sale.

The restaurant, at 1801 S. 3rd St., is being marketed as a turnkey operation for sale by The Barry Company, a commercial real estate firm.

The restaurant, located in a building constructed in 1901, sits at the corner of W. Maple St. and S. 3rd St. on a 3,400-square-foot lot. The restaurant itself is a one-story, 1,540- square-foot building. It’s currently being listed for $349,000.

A 2021 assessment put the total value at $134,500. No doubt, the difference between the assessed value and the asking price is being driven by the current real estate market, but more importantly, its potential as a turn key restaurant opportunity.

Triskele’s was opened in 2008 by Lynn Winter and JoLinda Klopp, who had served previously as head chef at River Lane Inn. Two years later, Klopp and Winer purchased the restaurant. The restaurant takes its name from the Triskele, or triple spiral, a celtic symbol. In its heyday it was described as a “terrific place for mussels (the Tuesday-night special), burgers and create-your-own mac and cheese” by Milwaukee Magazine.

While the building is for sale, the restaurant doesn’t appear to have closed yet. Only open Wednesday through Friday these days, the restaurant was advertising a curbside pick-up menu on Facebook as recently as Friday, May 20.

The owners of Triskele’s and the agent in charge of the listing could not be reached for comment.
