Another wonderful dining experience! We tried a new entree on this visit. The mouth-watering prime rib, grilled salmon and the bone-in ribeye were amazing! Each dish was piping hot and delicious. Service was great with Patrick with all your needs met with efficiency and a smile. See you again soon.

Prime rib is the best we’ve ever had! We love the house salad, too. And the chocolate cake…SO good!

Service was exceptional, made reservations to celebrate an anniversary and they brought a delicious dessert to enjoy while we celebrated. It was amazing especially after learning that it was a small family restaurant.

Ward’s is a fine choice for couples or business groups looking for a diverse menu highlighted by great excellent steaks and outstanding prime rib cuts. The starters were very good and the wine and spirit selection were more than adequate. Our service team was responsive and highly competent. Overall, a delightful evening on our return to downtown dining. Ward’s is top flight.

Well I didn't find the courage to attempt "achieving recognition" by eating at 40 ounce on this visit!! Rather I selected a 14 oz. and received a mouth-watering generous portion, piping hot and absolutely delicious! Service is always outstanding, friendly and efficient. My favorite place for prime rib; although their fish selections are very nice as well. See you again soon!

The service was great! The owner even stopped at our table and spoke to us for a minute and thanked us for coming in. Food was amazing. Plates were even warmed before arriving at our table which kept everything warm. Their rib appetizer is awesome and loved my bone-in ribeye. Drinks top notch as well. We will be back!

The place was empty on a Saturday night. It was weird. Also, there is no dress code. A group of people came in with tank tops, shorts, jeans, etc. It didn’t fit with the level of service and cost of meal. Service was great. Food was good, but not one of the best. Appetizer was $45 and just average Red Lobster type food. I would not come back here unless some things changed.

I've eaten at Wards several times, and it is always great, but last night was the best piece of Prime Rib I have ever eaten. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was relaxed. It will be long remembered as one of, if not THE BEST dinning experiences of my life.

Fantastic dining experience in the local, family owned restaurant. They really appreciated our business and the food outstanding. I would strongly recommend Ward's over any of the national names. Great food while at the same time supporting a great Milwaukee family!

This is truly a neighborhood gem! The food, service and ambience is ALL GREAT! There is a standard you expect when dining and Ward's exceeds it every time! Derrick (waiter) is very attentive and personable. The food selections are fantastic - everyone had something different and delicious. Chicken, salmon and prime rib. Great place, great time and fun for all.

Really enjoyed our night out celebrating a special celebration. Prime rib was excellent quality. Only complaint was that order that was requested as well done came out medium well with a still pink center.

First time here, visiting from out of town, Derrick, our server, was the best. Took time to explain stiff to us and was on top of everything. The food was absolutely delicious.

They were accommodating. We reserved a high top but decided to sit at the bar and we were able to do that. The food was good. My prime was a bit stringy but the flavor was good. It was the right price for downtown dining.

Food was excellent, service was timely and satisfactory overall. I had the lasagna ravioli, crab cakes, and 8 oz filets — all cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend visiting if you get the chance.

Delicious prime rib prepared exactly as we ordered it with great sides as well. My husband even ate the carrots which he normally wouldn't touch. And the wait staff was extraordinary. Great experience.
