Mister B’s Steakhouse at 1043 W. Walnut St. in Rogers is for sale.
Chef Bruce Barnes (Mr. B) and his wife Pamela Barnes are the owners and are planning to retire, according to business broker Eric Harris of Cantrell-Griffin Business Brokers of Springdale. They are hoping a buyer will be able to carry on the brand. Until then, the restaurant remains open with curbside and dine-in service (limited seating). Dine-in service is Thursday through Saturday and requires a reservation. The business is closed for the July 4th week but will reopen July 9 at 5 p.m.
The asking price for the business is $250,000. Mister B’s is inside a renovated 1930s-era stone house. The Barneses paid $320,000 for the property in April 2000, according to county real estate records. The 3,089-square-foot building is available for sale separately for $500,000, Harris said.
Mister B’s opened in November 2000. For ten years before that, the Barneses managed Herman’s Ribhouse in Fayetteville. They have roughly 35 years of restaurant management experience.
The brokerage post advertises the business as a “romantic upscale steakhouse catering to area’s discerning customer base that wants excellent food and service.”
The listing reports the restaurant had gross income in 2019 of $634,000.
