Webster's was once upon a time a true epicurean experience. Over the years it deteriorated substantially. Food had degenerated to merely fair, and dining there was an invariable 4+ hour slog. As a result I had not returned in years. My recent visit, with my two companions, however, was a delightful surprise, and showed that Webster's had fully returned to its glory days. Service was cheerful, impeccable, knoledgeable, and timely, the ambience was lovely (the piano slightly loud but quite tolerable) and the food was superb!
I was really delighted to see Webster's recovered and back from the dead.

The staff was amazing. It is hard to get my mother to eat - and they catered to her so that she enjoyed the meal immensely.

The decor of Webster's is
The decor of Webster's is simply lovely, and the food is even better. Otto's chicken was perfectly succulent with crispy skin, and the gelato sampler is just luscious. The house pianist adds a wonderful ambiance - perfect for special occasions.
I'd highly recommend Webster's to anyone; it's worth every penny for that special night out.

The food is exceptionally
The food is exceptionally tasty, the atmosphere is perfect for a romantic dinner for two or a quiet dinner with the family. This is not a place for a loud bunch looking to party. The place is perfect. The wait staff is clearly there to serve your every need promptly and it is truly something that you can only appreciate when you have experienced it. This all comes at a price though. Websters Prime is quite pricy.

Nice for WMU graduation dinner
Selected Webster's for WMU college graduation dinner for family. Staff treated us extremely well. Steaks were tasty, tender and cooked as ordered. My scallop dish was outstanding! Selected the Argentina Mendoza Carla Chiaro Malbec wine- very enjoyable. Side of grilled asparagus was perfect- lightly grilled (not burnt) and tender crisp (not soft or chewy). Young server was doing a professional job of serving, but at one point was a little too chatty. Easily resolved by continuing our conversation and not engaging him. He continued to serve quietly. Everyone was too full to try deserts, so we will have to come back soon!

Food Somewhat Inconsistent
Shellfish bisque was okay but not outstanding. Tenderloin filet, scallops and grilled asparagus were cooked perfectly and delicious. Creamed spinach was too milky and not enjoyable. Onion soup had way too many large croutons and looked like potato soup when it was served. Flourless chocolate torte with gelato was very enjoyable. Did not care for the large booth in which we were seated--way too large for two people. Service was fine otherwise.

We have been to Websters 4 or 5 times now and they NEVER disappoint us. Always great courteous service from the hostess to the service staff and the food is always superbly prepared. First time trying their venison and bison entrees - - absolutely delicious! Great entree variety for a prime steak restaurant - - - definitely worth a visit.

We went there for our 15th anniversary. Ffood are excellent. Especially the Ocean dish. It combined of scallop, shrimp, fish, season veggie. I recommend this dish to everyone. The flavors just exploded in my mouth.

Great spot for a special meal
The food was superb with nice presentation. One of our diners had food allergies and they prepared her a special dish to meet her requirements.

Where to begin?! From our private table tucked away in a quiet corner to the hand written card and vase of flowers as a gift it could not have been more thoughtful or kind! The food and drinks were amazing and the private tastes from the chef's were delicious. My husband and I had an amazing time and could not have been more thrilled with our choice of venue. Truly a wonderful meal punctuated with amazing service and a romantic ambiance. Thank you so much for such a special night to remember!

Great time at Webster's
We brought our friends from out of town to Webster's and had an excellent evening.
The food and service were outstanding and we will definitely be back.

We had the Halibut over veggies and the truffle potatoes. Perfect. Service is always great. Only down side was the wonderful piano was conflicting with the music from the bar.

I had a late dinner at Webster's intending to greet and enjoy a friend who was singing and playing guitar. The food was exceptional and the staff was very responsive, friendly and welcoming. I had a wonderful time.

This is a very nice steak house. The food was top notch. We will go back again. Service was great. It was her first night and we were her first customers. You could tell they put you through extensive training before they let you start serving.

Great for Anniversary
The food was exquisite and perfectly cooked to our specifications. The service was friendly, knowledgable, and very classy. The ambiance was very quiet, broken only by occasional loudness from other patrons and the piano player. The decor has a great number of very interesting paintings that are worth taking a short tour to see. For two people, I recommend getting a table instead of a booth. Though roomy, our booth had us seated next to each other, with both of us facing out into the restaurant.

We celebrated our 34th wedding
We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary at Webster's Prime. The service was outstanding including the attention to details: such as the placement of the floral arrangement that I ordered ahead of time, the "Happy Anniversary" greeting by the staff, the secluded table and the special anniversary dessert that surprised even me. So, overall a truly memorable and exceptional evening.

We were staying near the lake shore in SW Michigan, and were tiring of the chain and tourist places, so logged into OT ... finding Webster's Prime, just a 40 mile trip each way! Once we realized it was in the Radisson, it was easy to find. We were not disappointed, this is not your run of the mill hotel restaurant. The service was great, the wine list varied (and the waiter knowledgeable about their wines) and the food was superb. We both had steaks, which were excellent and tender ... the best we've had recently. We even splurged on their Michigan desert, with two spoons! It was a quiet evening, just two or three other tables of diners, but we didn't feel rushed. Great place ... Bravo!

Always a Delight
The menu has changed but it hasn't lost any quality. Quite the contrary, it's gotten better (and I didn't think that was possible). The Waygu beef was amazing. And the sides!!! The sweet potato was to die for and the asparagus was done to perfection. As always, the service was perfect. I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend my birthday than dining with my friends at Webster's. We topped off the evening by coming back after the show we attended for a nightcap in the lounge listening to wonderful music. Anyone who thinks Kalamazoo doesn't have fine dining is sadly mistaken. I just got back from Chicago today and Webster's ranks right up there with any place I have ever been to in Chicago (and I've been to many since I grew up there).

An Outstanding Experience
Dinner for 2 for a special birthday celebration for my wife. We were seated in a quieter part of the restaurant which enhanced the ambiance. She was wished a 'Happy Birthday' by staff throughout the evening. The pace was not rushed and we were made to feel like welcomed friends. The appetizers, soup and entree's were perfectly prepared and presented. Dessert was also fantastic. I had a delicious cheesecake. My wife had creme brûlée served on a large plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate! We also tremendously enjoyed the piano entertainment during the dining hour.
Overall, just a fantastic experience and a memorable, relaxing and romantic birthday!

My husband and I go to Websters once a year on our anniversary and we look forward to it the next time we dine as soon as our last bite of steak is finished. It is honestly the slowest we ever eat because you can't help but savor each bite. From the appetizers to the dessert the experience is unforgettable and you will have the best meal of your life. I recommend the tenderloin, my husband recommends the ribeye and we both loved the cheese appetizer and/or the beef appetizer. Amazing!!
