Steakhouses in Prairie

Select Local Merchants

Between the years of 1904 and 1944, the Greek Revival–style mansion that now holds Eric's Porter - Haus was home to former Waukesha mayor Isaac Lain. Today, it's a bustling supper club where servers make the rounds to multiple dining rooms, one of which is equipped with a fireplace lined with fresh cookies for Santa. Chef Chris prepares Old World specialties such as black forest schnitzel made with natural range-fed veal. Another specialty is steak; tender filet mignon sizzles alongside 24-ounce porterhouse cuts. Bottles imported from Germany, Australia, Italy, Spain, and California also make appearances on the wine list.

Featuring a culinary team that boasts training in kitchens from Italy to New York, D Mo's Pasta & Chop House stimulates salivary glands with an alluring array of Italian-American dishes. From their perch atop dark-chocolate-leather chairs, dinnertime diners can staunch growing hunger tides with orders of crispy fritto misto––calamari and shrimp with marinara ($9.50)––before plunging face-first into any number of enticing meat or pasta entrees. Unstuffed raviolis jump through hoops of spinach and ricotta to become ravioli di ricotta e spinaci ($12.50), and a steaming bowl of brodetto alla veneta––a seafood stew in a stewed tomato and pinot grigio base––treats taste buds to a grounded tour of the ocean's most popular speakeasies ($17). Hand-powered knives can hew 14-ounce New York strips ($21.95) or double-cut pork chops ($17) into bite-sized morsels before hiding them in a choice of side dish, inciting teeth-led search-and-masticate missions.
