Steakhouse
Rare combines craft cocktails, in-house dry aged steaks and attentive service in an unabashedly old-school steak house setting. Milwaukee's downtown steakhouse features specialty cuts dry aged in-house, like the Rib Cap and the Bottleneck as well as offering more traditional cuts like our filet and our rib eye. Rare also carries the famed, and incredibly delicious A5 Wagyu, available by the ounce.

Complimenting our steaks and entrees is a specialty cocktail list and an extensive wine list with everything from wines for a big celebration to a weekday dinner.

Rare Milwaukee is one of the top business lunch destinations, but if you're just looking for a drink after work, Rare offers discounted cocktails, wines and snacks at happy hour.

    The atmosphere is great. Loved the decor. Service was good but not quite what I expected at this price point. Steaks were decent but not amazing. Not sure I’d return.

    A friend and I came to celebrate our birthdays and we couldn’t be more pleased with our experience and the food. We’ve been to other steakhouses downtown and there’s just something different about rare. Our server Alicia was so sweet and checked up on us. The manager Devante came out to make sure our food was good and if we needed anything. Everything was excellent, came in a timely manor and overall was one of the best experiences we’ve had at a steakhouse. We will definitely be coming back for their bar menu!

    Another wonderful experience at Rare. Many thanks to Chef Todd and his staff. Food and service are really excellent at this restaurant. My server, Brooke, was knowledgeable, engaging and helpful without being intrusive. Ambience is very good. This is probably my 5th time here and it has never disappointed.

    Just very average food. Definitely does not match the price point. Everything was rather bland and unflavored. My steak was $140 and really didn’t taste like anything. Just go to Carnevor instead. I wish I did.

    Food was great. Here’s my complaint. I made the reservation over two weeks in advance for my son‘s 19th birthday. We had a party of four when we were seated, we were at a very awkward table that was a shape that didn’t really fit his 6’ 3” legs. We were all facing towards the center of the dining room look at other diners, and I was too far away from his girlfriend to even be able to make a conversation They said reservations were quite a bit that night so they couldn’t really accommodate us with anything more than a table that was in the bar area. So everyone made reservations several weeks in advance? So we decided to take the table in the bar, it was fine. Until we realize that the bartender was our waiter. So he spent the entire night trying to make drinks for the bar, and the entire restaurant, and wait on us. He tried to do his best, but he was just spread too thin. And when you walk away with a $500 bill for four people, we just expected better service.

    Excellent Food and Service The Strip Steak I had was one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. This is an Old School Steakhouse. Steak was perfectly seasoned, cooked dead on, well rested, and exactly the way it should be All of the Sides were incredible. Huge Potato, incredible Creamed Corn, Delicious Roasted Mushrooms Leave room for dessert because the cheesecake we had was on the next level and the service matched the food

    For the price this was way not worth it to us. Steaks had zero flavor. That will be our last time are this restaurant.

    Food was terrible. Steak was over done, took forever for food, 22 min for dessert. Felt like staff were waiting to be closed down. They said kitchen was backed up and they only had 2 customers in the bar, and 6 tables. The rest of the restaurant was empty. On a sat. During prime time. Wouldn't go back
