Would give it a 5 but I had shrimp d Jong and it was o k but was not as good as the Cottonpicker. Also had some much better in the French Quarter. I also had french onion soup and it was very good. Also had tossed salad and baked potato. What can you say about those items? Standard restaurant... read more

Even though it is in a sketchy neighborhood, and even though the exterior is in dire need of a good update, the food inside is wonderful. This is a typical Wisconsin supper club menu. Large prime rib slices, their specialty, and huge steaks are the backbone of the menu. The drinks are substantial, like the steaks, and service is great.... More

Excellent bar with great cocktails and the best prime rib I've ever tasted. A real go to for that special occasion or for taking visitors for a great meal

Corner House has been around a long time and used to be the place to go for a treat, they specialize in prime rib. Prime Rib tasty. Trio appetizer tasted fine but appearance kind of mushy. Service slow but pleasant. Was a disappointment for our anniversary dinner.

My wife and I wanted to celebrate our grandson’s birthday and we thought The Corner House would fit the bill. I made reservations for our party of four for a early Sunday evening supper. Our quest was prime rib. We were seated upon arrival and ordered drinks and appetizer. We ordered stuffed mushrooms as there were four of us and... More

One terrible experience from one visit does not mean much. Does it? Well it happened to us and it meant that we will not go back again. Based on our experience described below, I question the food quality, the service quality, and the management of the restaurant. Therefore, I will not be back and I would like to share this... More

During our recent visit, the Corner House was celebrating their 70th birthday - with the same ownership. To reach that milestone you have to be doing things right. If our dinner was an example, they will be celebrating many more milestones. The cocktails were expertly prepared, the dinners were very flavorful and the service was outstanding. For entrees we had... More

We chose this restaurant due to all the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We would have to agree...the prime rib was fantastic! It did need a seasoned rub or crust on the outside to have made it excellent. Wait staff was attentive, although it was basically empty when we got there (we left at 8:22pm). Baked French onion soup was... More

Located in a depressed area of Racine but a great find. Great steak, lots of extras like soup, salad, potato all included. Good value.

This place is "nationally known" for it's prime rib, but we went for the traditional Friday Night Fish Fry-most restaurants in Racine (and the whole mid-west) do a Friday night fish fry, but our local relatives said this was the best. They were right! This is a long existing restaurant, with autographed pictures of movie and sports celebrities in the... More
