This is a high-end steak house with outstanding food. I got the 16oz prime rib, which was prepared to perfection. The wait staff is highly professional and courteous, which greatly adds to the dining experience. It is not cheap, but it is a very good value. I recommend giving them a try.

Salad was starting to turn. Not that good. Baked potato not cooked completely. Very plane. Prime rib was good. Neighbor table was a little loud. Service was great. Price was high for what it was.

The food was great. My husband had the prime rib, my daughter had filet mignon and I had lobster ravioli. Only issue was that there was a loud group of people celebrating and they got a little too close to our table for comfort. The noise level was a bit much and had I know that a party of 15 was going to be seated next to us, I would have asked to be seated elsewhere.

I had 6 Oz filet with scallops, scallops were amazing, steak was a little under seasoned, my 2 friends both had the prime rib and both thought their cut had too much fat and gristle, it was our 3rd time trying Wards, last 2 times the Prime Rib was amazing... might have just been an off night

Loved the prime rib! The 8 oz is a nice portion, but opted for the 24 oz. In order to have leftovers. Upgraded to the roasted beet salad with spinach and goat cheese. Added a side of cajun mac and cheese-delicious and not too spicy. The complimentary cheesy bread is a must.

Food delicious. Only negative is they do not make a true hollandaise as advertised. More like melted butter for asparagus.

Came for the third time the prime rib I had to chew like I was eating a price of rump roast. Had to ask for a second knife it was so bad, the dessert was more tender when they comped it, will never be returning due to the fact they’ve changed supplier on the beef , sorry wards the hype is gone !

Great food, service, and fantastic outdoor seating. Great wine list. The prime rib is to die for. They earned the name of the best prime rib and it shows. Been there twice now and both times have been fantastic. Haven't found anything on the menu that is not top notch.

We had to wait at least 45 minutes between our soup/salads and the main courses, with no explanation whatsoever. Not good. Something happened; there should never be a delay that long. So just tell us. Communicating this to us would have been appreciated. Instead we came away disappointed. Also, during those 45 or minutes, no one bothered to see if we desired any beverages.

If you desire a good cut of Prime Rib, then Ward's is the place to go! I have been to Ward's more than 6 times over the last 2 years, and each and every time I walk away very satisfied. They do Prime Rib as good as anyone and quite honestly, it's probably the best Prime Rib I've ever had.
The sides are also delicious, the cocktails are tasty, and service always seems to be pretty timely.
I would definitely recommend Ward's to anyone looking for a good meal!

Arrived for 7:45 reservation and seated immediately. Wasn’t that busy.

Initial bar service was slow. Two of the party had stuffed pepper soup and didn’t seem too excited. Salads were good.

Other table guest plate of 24oz prime looked amazing. My wife had the special of filet and bacon wrapped scallops. Presentation was lacking with two scallops were wrapped with bacon which was much taller than the scallops. I wish restaurants would get back to garnishing plates as two scallops and a small filet looked cafeteria style.

Then my 24oz prime arrived and the presentation was horrible; it actually looked as if the cook was trying to keep food cost down by using a butchered end cut with a lot of fat. Sitting next to the other prime dish, I wondered how such a supposed upscale place could serve both to one table. I don’t like returning items as it makes all the table uneasy but for $50 I did speak with the server who immediately took my plate. She seamed confused as to why I returned asking if how I wanted the temperature. Short time later another delivered a beautiful entree. She questioned me as to why I returned the first which she assumed was temperature. Have to admit I was a little taken back with the question as no one seemed to think anything was wrong with the first plate and the “ounces were the same” as the other one served to the other guest.

The replacement was tasty and the rest of the meal went fine.
