This Milwaukee steakhouse is legendary for its high-end entrees served at reasonable prices in an atmosphere that's upscale yet relaxed. Ward's succulent prime rib was named by Food Paradise as "The Best in the USA." Ward’s is equally famous for its Wall of Fame, which proudly features the names of conquerors of large cuts of prime rib, ranging from 40 ounces to 360 ounces. Steak and seafood are also standouts at Ward’s. Ward's offers an impressive list of martinis, cocktails, beer and wine by the glass; and boasts a selection of scotch and bourbon that will thrill any whiskey drinker. Its wine list has earned the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence since 2015. Private Dining is also an option at Wards with three rooms available for groups of 10 to 88. With three dining rooms, private dining options, lunch, happy hour, a bar menu available in a lively lounge and an award winning wine list, Ward's has something for everyone.

All the food was delicious. Prime rib is our favorite cut and Ward's didn't disappoint. We will definitely return

We ordered two 12oz prime rib specials on Friday night, both medium rare. They were on the rare side of medium rare and the cut of meat was not near what I would expect from a restaurant that is known for it's prime rib. The outer edge of the cut which is traditionally the most flavorful, was inedible - too chewy to enjoy. The meat itself had strings running through it with a lot of inedible fatty parts. I think the cut would have been easier to eat if cooked to medium, but even with that it would not have been near as good as I had expected. I am sorry to say that the atmosphere was what made the night special, not the food (though the potato soup and the lobster bisque were amazing!).

The food was excellent but the knives were very dull. Wouldn’t expect that from a top end steak house.

Great steak. Could cut the prime rib with a spoon. Cocktails are really good too. Would recommend!

A truly exceptional birthday celebration for our son. The food was perfect. The service was excellent, warm and personal. One of the best meals we've had in Milwaukee. Wards is truly a treasure.

Definitely wasn’t impressed based off the reviews we had read prior to making a reservation. Had calamari and it was so bland. My steak was over cooked and way smaller, like it was butterflied and cooked in microwave to get it medium well. Even after I indicated I didn’t want it butterflied. Thank goodness for the dipping sauce as the steak had zero flavor and the sauce wasn’t good either . The baked potato was some tiny shriveled thing out of the microwave. For a Steakhouse I’d never think to serve such a thing to a customer. For as little as we get out for a nice dinner, what a waste of money! Will never return!!

The food was better than expected. Mussels were some of the best I e ever had. I recommend the lobster bisque instead of the salad. Best soup I ever had. Prime rib was cooked perfectly. I will be going back sometime soon!

We had the filet, medium are, they were outstanding. Very tender.
Floor tables are a little close to each other, so expect your neighbor to listen in some.

We had an amazing dinner. We took our daughter who is going to college in the area out for her birthday. She and my husband had the prime rib, I had the Roasted Chicken Breasts (w spinach in a parmesan cream sauce). All 3 dishes were so delicious. The service was perfect. We loved our dinner.
