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 prime rib did not have much flavor and plating was abismal! It looked as it was tossed on without regards! Also the prime was extremely tough. The best part of the meal was the pork belly starter! The experience was very unwelcoming, we arrived 10 minutes before our reservation and the restaurant was not ready for service! The hostess informed us that it did not open for another 10 minutes but we could sit at the bar...however the bartender was not pleased to see we were there before and made smart remarks as if we were not even there! The floor manager gasped and made the mumbled “I guess I won’t get to eat my food then”, because we were 10 minutes early for our 4pm reservation! Overall I will not return considering how much we spent and the experience was Walmart worthy!

My husband and I were celebrating an Anniversary and my husband loves prime rib so we chose to try Wards. My Husband wanted to try the 40oz prime rib which he said was very delicious and he pushed himself to finish so he can get his name on the wall. I had the lobster bisque and the Squash ravioli, I'm not a huge meat eater. My meal was okay which I expected since they are a steakhouse! The Owner/Sister came to our table thank us for coming and explained the family business dynamic which was really special. We got a piece of cake for the anniversary which was very thoughtful. Overall, good service, good food and fine pricing.

The food and service was outstanding. We would highly recommend this restaurant to all our friends and family.
I had prime rib and it was made perfect, which is very unusual because I like mine well done. It was very juicy and delicious.
Our waitress/server was very professional and top notch...she was on top of everything. Emily was very attentive to all of our needs.
