7 Can't-Miss Milwaukee Steakhouses

Foodie trends may come and go, but one thing will always say “special occasion” to most diners: steak! From old school supper clubs to ultra-modern celebrity haunts, Milwaukee has no shortage of options for the carnivorous set. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a birthday, or just a great night out, stop at one of these Milwaukee steakhouses for a meat-filled masterpiece of a meal.

Five O’Clock Steakhouse

One of Milwaukee’s great classic supper clubs, this steakhouse has been serving up staples like salads prepared tableside, relish trays, ice cream drinks, and, of course, amazing steaks since 1946. In addition to the main dining room, on Friday nights you’ll find live jazz upstairs in the swanky Alley Cat Lounge.


This upscale, modern steakhouse boasts an impressive wine list of over 750 selections by the bottle and 35 by the glass to pair with your steak. With delicious steaks and a cutting-edge contemporary vibe, it’s no surprise that Carnevor is a popular choice for visiting athletes and celebrities!

Rare Steakhouse

An elegant fine dining experience awaits you at this steakhouse. Although it’s located in the chic, modern 833 East building, Rare has a distinctly old-school vibe. Steaks are dry-aged in-house, then seared in a custom Montague broiler. Plus, unlike many traditional steakhouses, Rare is open for lunch, so you can enjoy your steak anytime.

Stella Van Buren

New on the dining scene, this Italian-American steakhouse was named one of Thrillist’s Best New Restaurants in Milwaukee for 2017. Located in the new Westin Hotel, Stella’s wall of floor-to-ceiling windows give it a very different vibe from the traditional wood-paneled steakhouse.

Dream Dance Steak

Located in Potawatomi Hotel & Casino, this decadent steakhouse offers an array of seasonally-inspired dishes as well as over 600 wines. Even the beloved cheese curd gets a high-end makeover on this menu into a “cheese curd fritter” served with tomato jam.

Mr. B’s

This classic Italian steakhouse (green checked tablecloths and all!) offers upscale food in a casual, lively atmosphere at two area locations. During the summer, stop at Mr. B’s – Brookfield to enjoy your meal out on the patio.

Eddie Martini’s

Located inside a converted house, this chophouse blends a high-end menu with a cozy, homey feel. A local favorite for more than twenty years, Eddie Martini’s was a trailblazer for fine dining in Wauwatosa.
