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.
We specialize in mouth-watering char broiled steaks, seafood, ribs and chops as well as an award-winning wine list of over 150 different selections. It is our promise to you, to make every dining experience a memorable one.

SteakHouse 100 satisfies carnivorous cravings with a menu heavy on red meat and sophistication. Start by snacking on nature's easiest prey: escargot in mushrooms and garlic butter ($6.95 for six). Steaks—such as the 25-ounce cowboy steak ($29.95) and the 12-ounce senior New York strip ($23.95)—are cut by hand, not by laser. A quartet of surf 'n' turf options pits land against sea in a culinary cage match, and an array of sandwiches (such as Philly cheesesteak for $10.95 and marinated chicken breast for $7.95) provides meaty delight without the encumbrance of silverware. Because rib, like ministers and meridians, is better when it's prime, SteakHouse 100 also offers a trio of prime-rib options, starting with the 12- to 14-ounce junior prime rib ($19.95) and scaling up to the 16- to 18-ounce king prime rib ($23.95). A large wine list and full bar keep beef-weary jaws well-oiled.
Showcased on the Travel Channel?s Food Paradise for its gargantuan cuts of prime rib, Ward?s House of Prime elevates plates with formidable servings of steak, veal, seafood, and pasta within an elegant, leather-tinged dining room. Chefs slice the signature prime rib in a spectrum of portion sizes ranging from modest 8-ounce morsels to The Al-Mighty Halaka's behemoth 160 ounces. Those who conquer these savory leviathans garner immortalization in Ward?s Hall of Fame, where caricatures of past protein vanquishers smile from behind their trusty steak knives. At the bar, an extensive wine list gilds glasses with varietals hailing from throughout the globe as drinksmiths craft a bevy of inventive cocktails. The dining room?s studded-leather seating flanks tables clad in white linens, and the outdoor patio?s umbrellas keep diners dry during worcestershire storms brought on by their steaks' gravitational forces.

Milwaukee ChopHouse's menu of succulent fare begins with ahi tuna tartare with avocado, wasabi, and sriracha ($12) and wagyu beef carpaccio in a white truffle oil with parmigiano reggiano and capers ($13)—both of which sharpen the palate for the main event: the ChopHouse's signature boneless 16-ounce strip steaks prepared au poivre ($35), crab Oscar-style ($42), blue-cheese crusted ($39), or with truffle butter ($39). The kitchen also turns out hot non-bovine entrees such as sautéed sea bass with sundried tomato and basil pesto ($32) and lobster tail ($51), a.k.a. mermaid steak.
