Downtown Racine, easy to miss...but don't

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... read 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

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

This place in the middle of uptown Racine is a very nice place! Drinks are good and the Prime rib is the best in town. A little pricey but you get what you pay for!

This place is Racine in a nutshell. Very old decor and seems it hasn't changed in 100 years. That's not a bad thing when it comes to the food though. The building could be on fire and I'd still go for the prime rib. Very, very good. Looked like something from the Flintstones the first time I went. Great food,... More

This place is a longtime Racine institution. They've made it as long as they have by, quite simply, making amazing food. I can honestly say that their prime rib is the best I have had in my entire life. The Corner House is brilliant at the basics and won't try to dazzle you with some exotic sounding sauce drizzled on... More

If visiting racine and you want the best food in town. Cornerhouse is the place to go. Known for their prime rib which is as good if not better than any other in the world. All menu items are excellent. With a full salad, get Al's dressing, not on the menu but a hidden gem for locals and a choice... More

I've been to the Corner House on numerous occasions spanning a period of over 30 years. During this time I have always experienced great food and service and I would come to the Corner House with family or friends anytime I wanted to enjoy a superior dining experience. My opinion of this restaurant has changed dramatically over the past month... More
