Eric’s Porter – Haus, a Greek revival-style mansion built in 1848, greets visitors with stately white columns and a well-manicured lawn.

Six Citysearchers give Eric’s Porter - Haus an average rating of 4.5 stars. TripAdvisors give the restaurant an average of 3.5 owl eyes. > * The food is top-notch! They have excellent steaks, pork chops and German food. As for their fish fry, it’s the best kept secret in Waukesha. With the fish fry, the fried cod is very good but the baked is out of this world! – Guest User, Citysearch > * I have been a semi-regular for a couple of years ago. Service is always fanstastic [sic] and it provides a nice, quiet atmosphere with Sinatra or Martin playing throughout. Great date place. – porschegal, TripAdvisor
Eric's Porter Haus
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. Eric's Porter Haus 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. They also serve seafood as well as their steaks and pork chops. Bottles imported from Germany, Australia, Italy, Spain, and California also make appearances on the wine list.
