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 celebrated our 33rd Anniversary at Ward's last week. Bethany was our server and was instrumental in making it truly wonderful. The food was incredible (as always). Thank you Bethany, the Culinary Staff and Ward's for a great meal and memory!

The evening was beautiful with a very night summer night! We are outside and enjoyed the weather, breeze and overall outstanding service! Had the salmon which was cooked to perfection and delicious. Brian came out to say hello and ask how everything was including food and service. Great place and see you again soon!

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.

Michael - We're sorry we disappointed you. We wish we had been able to provide you with the service we pride ourselves on, but missed the mark last Saturday night. We hope you will come back again and give us another chance.

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!
