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.

The Vibe: If one phrase best sums up Jackson Grill, it's "old fashioned." This descriptor applies equally to the decor of candlelit white linens and to the way the same family has run the establishment for decades. It's also the name of one of Wisconsin's most beloved cocktails, which the restaurant's bartenders strive to perfect.
All of Jackson Grill's dinners come with housemade soup. If you get the opportunity, select the crab bisque, which has received praise from both Third Coast Daily and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Arrive hungry. In addition to soup, each dinner also comes with salad, a breadbasket, and a complimentary bowl of olives. The entrees are also so big that you "might have to call in reinforcements for desserts," according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
