This is a GREAT place! We are "regulars" to Ward's and really enjoy the food, service and ambience! The salmon is amazing. Always cooked to perfection, piping hot and served with a smile. Support staff is amazing with regard to never having to ask and your water glass is always filled. Brian is the owner and chef - does a great job in the kitchen and seeing his guests on a regular basis. Love this place and their entire staff. See you soon and next time I do the prime rib!

Ward’s is ALWAYS a great experience. I confess to only ever eating the Prime Rib which is excellent but my wife gets different dishes and they are consistently good. I couldn’t recommend Ward’s more.

Dinner for 2, Tuesday night Res at 7PM. Place was not busy, when seated we were told, "out of Prime Rib". That is what we came for, it is part of the name "Wards house of Prime". Had steak instead, expensive but pretty average. My Wife had lobster, that was good. Baked potatoes; small and undercooked, could hardly eat them. Took a long time to get food.
Bartender was friendly, and on top of it. Waitress was OK, no issue.
Tried this place twice in last month, I think it will be awhile before I return.
(I like the bar area for dinner, that is what brought me back after mediocre first visit)

The service was ok. We were dining for our 29th Wedding anniversary. Would not return for a special event.
We were distracted by our neighboring table. LITERALLY, the very gracious woman received her dinner with a bug on it. Not a single person from the restaurant apologized or even attempted to provide her with a different meal. They even had to ask for credit on their bill for it. Needless to say it was very distracting and unnecessary. Management should have dealt with it.
Our meals were ok. I ordered the sea bass and it was doused in butter and garlic. I could only eat a fraction of it.
Overall disappointing. Cocktails were the only thing I really enjoyed.

Ward's is our go-to place for special occasions. The food is wonderful, the service is exceptional, it is very accessible and the wine list is excellent. If you've never been there, you owe it to yourself to go.

I came to your restaurant for the veal Marcella. Was very disappointed when that was not on the menu. The prime rib was good but I will be back for the veal.

Wards did a great job. Seated us as soon as we received. Our waitress “Desi” was knowledgeable, friendly and not pushy. Very few people were dining, pandemic and Saturday before Easter. One of the owners visited our table and thanked us for dining with them. Explained they are a family restaurant and really care for each and every customer.
Food was very good. Wine selection was good enough for us. Salads were good. My wife had the Cobb salad and loved it. Mine was just a normal garden salad and it was fine.
I came for the prime rib! My wife had an 8 ounce cut and I had the 16 ounce, both rare and they were fabulous. Potatoes came with it and the skillet mushrooms were excellent. We were not rushed. Enjoyed our evening and will definitely come back when staying in Milwaukee!

We went to Wards House of Prime for my Birthday with another couple. It was our first time that we ate there. My favorite steak is a prime rib and I haven’t had an edible one for 2 years. I ordered the 40 oz. which was delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly. I like mine medium. Not a lot of fat. The steak was extremely tender and just melted in my my mouth. I didn’t even have to chew. The appetizers and sides were all tasty. The only low point was the desserts . They were very pedestrian. The carrot cake which I did not order didn’t have cream cheese frosting. It came with butter cream. A restaurant of this caliber should have outstanding desserts or at least carrot cake with the correct frosting.

Had a wonderful evening, the only problem was our waiter was very hard to understand with his mask on and he wouldn't speak up louder. He wasn't very attentive to our table and as a server myself, I thought he should've been a little more involved with us. Overall experience was good.

The food wasn’t good. We ordered 2 NY strips the cut of meat was NY strips. Food wasn’t seasoned at all. Only thing that was ok was the potatoes. Sad because I really wanted to like this place.
