For the most part very good.

Went with a group of 6. One of the cuts of Prime was much smaller than the rest. They did adjust the bill, which was good. But that one was also much fattier that the others as well. The order of onion strings was not all that big either. Service was excellent. Prime rib was very good.

Snippy bartender, EXTREMELY LONG WAIT (even with reservations); dry ribs, cold fries, overcooked and dry baked potatoes, crunchy "sauteed" vegetables. Not what we expected - or was told from other guests. Waitress was pleasant. Won't be going back.

I love this place. I've eaten here now several times and figured it's time for a review. Its right across from a boat harbor on Pewaukee lake so it's got a vintage nautical theme in the restaurant with various kitsch on the walls and some neat stuff too. Friday fish fry is very good and usually has local caught Perch... More

Our group converged on Michael's with little notice; in a few minutes a space was carved out, tables were pushed together, and we were cheerfully accommodated. Service was great, food was plentiful - heck one of our members brought home about a half a cow! I was thrilled to enjoy dinner at this Pewaukee institution!

A good 'ol Supper Club. Nothing real right with it and nothing real wrong with it. The steaks were good. Not aged but a nice cut of meat. Service was OK.

This was our "go to" for special occasions. Unfortunately we have started going elsewhere now as the staff is not what it used to be. Last weekend started with a snippy hostess and a short tempered snappy bartender. Our waitress was very good and very nice. Decided on the fish because I didn't need a $$$ prime rib tonight. The...

We usually order their spcialty, prime rib which never disappoints, but all you can eat crab legs was the special that evening. A little work but yummy!

We had been to Michael's years ago and were looking forward to another great dining experience. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. Our appetizer was served after we had the soup and salad. My husband had to send his prime rib back because it was too tough to cut or eat. The second one served was better but still not to the... More

Michael's House of Prime is located approximately 2 miles north of I-94 and Hwy SS in Pewaukee. The restaurant has been around for a long time and has a nautical theme that might be a bit dated. There is very little parking around the restaurant itself and a valet is provided who will shuttle vehicles off site while patrons go... More

This restaurant has been around for years and we've always ignored it. I believe years ago my husband even made reservations for our anniversary and we walked in and turned around and walked back out. It's just not where you would expect to find a delicious five-star meal. The atmosphere is dusty old-school nautical. It probably has the same decor... More
