    Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!!

    I am not shooting the messenger, but I would avoid that "deal" like I would avoid the bubonic plague.

      Hah! Glad to understand "meat" "meat" is not what MKE stands for. Seriously. I asked my teen if he wanted this, and he did the best thing I ever wanted to hear "I will eat any thing but you have to understand. Taste/enjoymrnent is more important.

        Is this place even in business anymore? I just tried to go to their website and it's down. I travel to Milwaukee once a month for a week so am always looking for different options.

          Yes, surprisingly they are still open. At least as of today.

          If you look through the Great Lakes part of the board you will easily find no less than dozens of different restaurants in Milwaukee which are superior to Ward's.

          There is a reason why Ward's is always selling Groupons to try and get anyone into their restaurant,. :-)

            I see. I think I saw them on some Travel Channel show once with people eating ridiculous amounts of Prime Rib which is why this post caught my attention. I try to keep an eye on this board just for ideas for when I'm in town. My personal favorite so far has been Three Brothers mainly because you can't find anything like it in St. Paul-Minneapolis.

            If you see restaurants on Groupon for the Twin Cities, it is very likely they are on their last legs and about to go out of business. Just something to keep in mind if you ever are traveling out this way.

              Thanks for the advice regarding the Twin Cities. In a previous lifetime I lived in downtown Minneapolis and have fond memories of Manny's and Aquavit (which I think is now closed).

              Both cities had some great restaurants and incredibly intelligent and nice residents. My only complaint was the weather. :-)
