Not a Pleasant Experiance

We've eaten here many times over the last 20 plus years and the food has always been very good. However, we rarely go here anymore because of the service, particularly the waitresses. The waitresses seem unhappy and act like they're being forced against their will to serve the guests. Like most... read more

This is not the first time I have been here, I have been going for years, still the best prime rib, and I feel the prices are reasonable, I had the 16 oz prime rib, for just under $30.00--imported beer was $4.50 so again reasonable. The waitress did a great job, services was excellent, chicken noodle soup was tasty, salad... More

For years all I have heard was how great the Cornerhouse was... What a disappointment! First off the decor is VERY outdated. Second the food was not bad but definitely not worth the prices on the menu. Third after ordering our meals and finding a hair in my soup I wasn't so much as offered a new bowl, our waitress...

This family owned supper club has been around for a very long time & the food still is fantastic! Best baked French onion soup & prime rib ever!

Tuesday night dinner for 8 with 3 guests from out of town. Older style fine dining environment with very good service. Good portions and good selection. I had a very good English cut of prime rib cooked medium as did most of us. The filet mignon also looked good. This is a nice place for any sort of occasion.

The Corner a House is our go to spot when we are craving beef. The prime rib for which they are famous is always perfectly prepared, tender, juicy and full of flavor. Dinners come with soup and salad and choice of potato as well as a warm loaf of bread. Comfort food at its finest!

You get what you pay for, while not cheap but the value for the price is right on the mark. I have been over the last 30 something years to countless restaurants ranging from dives to very fancy top rated places. I must say I did not just rate this establishment excellent just because, it was rated excellent because it... More

The Corner House is located in the south Racine area with decent parking in the back. This place for me is a special occasion restaurant, but they do have a bar area in case you want a drink and a sandwich or appetizer. I go here for the prime rib. They are award winning for the prime rib and I... More

Even though they were more busy in the middle of the week than we figured, we were seated within 2 minutes at a very comfortable table for 4. Our hostess, as well as our waitress, made us feel right at home. Drinks were ordered and delivered promptly. We ordered shortly there after and the dinners were also served on time.... More
