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.

Known for prime rib, but I always get the filet. Did not disappoint - the food was great and cooked perfectly but what really stood out during this visit was the amazing service from all of our waitstaff.

Had a wonderful meal with the family! The prime rib was piping hot, succulent and delicious! We also ordered the salmon which is also amazing. Compliments to the entire team including hostess, wait staff and chef. This is a great neighborhood restaurant that values your patronage and gives you "their best" every time!! See ya'll soon.

I dined out with an out of town business associate, our VP of Sales, and CFO. We had two individuals who were not red meat eaters with us, but were very impressed with the selection of the menu. We all greatly enjoyed our meals!

Billie was my server and she could not have been any better. She was attentive without any hint of pestering us. She was friendly and answered all of our questions quickly without having to think about it. The prime rib was the best piece of beef I have had in a long time. Tender, perfectly done, juicy, just excellent!

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.
