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.

We went to this place because we wanted some Prime Rib, Steak and some good wine. We were disappointed with all but the Prime Rib (even that wasn't 5 star though). For the value this was a horrible deal, we spent around $500 on 3 people. Might have been worth about $100. They left the coffee on the "coffee rubbed steak", most places will rub it off after cooking because it is very bitter. The best thing on the plate was the Au Gratin Potatoes.

The menu is very well thought out. Our steaks were perfectly prepared as well. The waiter was able to accommodate a small substitution for the side and the lobster bisque and crab cakes were the best that I have had in a long time.

We checked in for our reservation and after 25 min of waiting, we went back to the hostess to see why there was a hold up after people who arrived after us were being seated. It turns out they marked us as being seated but never actually seated us.

Service was great! Food was very good. Appetizers of Shrimp and Crab Cakes were awesome. Lobster bisque was great. Ambiance was a bit weird in the bar area for a Valentine’s Day with music playing somewhat loudly of 90’s and 2000’s pop.

The ambiance is a little bit old school. However, the food is very good. I highly recommend the bacon wrapped bites and the twice baked potato. They have really good drinks too. it's a great place for a date or even girls night out!

I hate it when a meal does not live up to expectations, but sorry to say but this one did not. It was me and my kids on a Saturday night. We sat in the back which is the dinning area, up front they have a bar like atmosphere with high top tables. They sat us in a both that was more designed for a couple than four people. Our waitress was very good, but the food was just ok. I had the NY strip and it was fine, son had Rib-eye which also was ok. My youngest had the seafood pasta and it was extremely salty. Unfortunately there are plenty of better steak houses in Milwaukee. The bacon wrapped prime rib bites as an appetizer where pretty good.

Had another wonderful meal. Tried for the first time the butternut squash pasta and it was "amazing"!! The salmon is mouth-watering as well. Always an enjoyable time with great food, service and ambience. Brian (owner) stopped by to say hello and thanking us for his business. This goes to show you they appreciate you as a customer and want you coming back for a great time! Enjoy your next meal...

First time ever that I showed up for an Open Table reservation and the table wasn't ready. Were told it would be 15 to 20 minutes which it was. Our waiter, RJ, was great but the rest of the staff didn't really seem up to par. Just doesn't come across as a true steak house even though they do have great steaks.

We were very pleased with Ward's overall. We celebrated a special birthday and were given a private room, which I didn't know they had. So it was an excellent evening and definitely more quiet than the regular dining rooms. We really enjoyed our evening.

Don't get the bernaise sauce it has no flavor, steak was over done. Banana cake was wonderful though. Hoping the chef just had a bad night as we normally love Wards.
