Going to the Prime Quarter is always a real treat for us. They have some of the best steaks that I have eaten. This is a cook your own steak place but they have a chef that will cook it for you for $2. Part of the fun while cooking your steak is to grill Texas toast and enjoy the... More

a co-worker suggested we stop in and grab a bite at the Prime Quarter on a recent trip in the Janesville, Wisconsin area and they were right on. You pay one price witch was very reasonable and then you go to the meat cooler, pick out a cut of meat and throw it up on the bed of charcoals and... More

For 9 years we have come here to eat our Valentine's Day dinner with many couples/friends from church. And ever year was breath taking. But now I know why! My husband cooked our steaks for the past 8 years. But we decided to let him rest and enjoy himself this year. So we let the chefs of Prime Quarter cook... More

This has become a social hotspot for my wife and I. At least once every 3 months we drive 50 minutes north to Janesville, get a hotel for the night, and make this our dinner stop. This time, I tried their eating challenge and devoured a 40 ounce steak, tater, salad, and garlic bread in under the 1 hr 15... More

We were there last Friday night with reservations. We took 2 couples out to eat with us. They were engaged & we were celebrating our 26th wedding anniversary. Met at the bar for cocktails which were made well. Got seated and decided to grill our steaks first and then proceed to the salad bar & baked potato. The food was... More

Our first choice place had a 45 minute wait, so drove around looking for something appealing. What a great find. The steaks (ribeye and tenderloin) were definitely choice. We didn't realize it was a "cook-your-own" place, but the staff explained everything, made it sound fun, and it was fun! Good salad bar. What I will do different next time is... More

We actually took our time, sat down had a drink before dinner, watched the SEC championship with beer brewed in Wisconsin and took in the aroma of grilled steak. The place was decorated festively and my wife said, "This is like a scene from a movie." The steaks were awesome (you cook em yourself), couple of baked potatoes, garlic bread... More

We all had the ribeye which was good. We had the chef cook the steaks and they were all done to our liking. Like another reviewer said its nothing special just an average steak house. The beer was warm. Dessert was good. A good night out with friends.

All-in-all, Prime Quarter is very average. It's not bad, but nothing special. The steaks themselves are very large, but not the highest quality. I seriously question their claim that they are "choice" grade, as they have a lot of connective tissue and not much marbling. The "grill your own" concept is a nice gimmick, but I'd still rather have my... More

My family and I went to this steak house. The steak I had was by far one of the best I have ever had. I do think that I prefer Ruth's Chris much better, but unfortunately they do not have a location close to Rockford. So, if you love steak and are in the greater Rockford area, this is a... More
