When I lived in Racine my boss H.R.W. and I would dine there at least once or twice a week, we would eat at the bar they would set it up for a night of bantering and laughs. I miss this place because one the food service and friendship that I was allowed to share in doesn't come along that... More

In Racine, restaurants are like Wisconsin politics. Once people settle in with you, they'll keep voting for you even when you are in decline and other, better candidates are available. I'm convinced that this kind of loyalty gets this restaurant high marks from those who give them. The food costs more than it's worth, and there's nothing particularly attractive about... More

The restaurant is known for the prime rib which is cooked to perfection. The flavor and tenderness is like no other. The restaurant is busy and reservations are recommended, but worth the wait if you drop in. The bar area is large and the drinks made by pros......... We like to do brunch there on the Sunday and normally we... More

I have been dining here for many many years. I go for my birthday and anniversary because it is such a nice restaurant to go to for a special occasion. I have never been disappointed. I always order their specialty prime rib. They serve it with your choice of soup salad potato and warm bread with butter. They have a... More

We went to this restaurant specifically for Prime Rib. The place is old and dated. The water they were giving us had black flakes of something floating in it. The waitress , Penny asked if we wanted fruit or vegetables in our Sweet Southern Comfort Manhattens.??? Vegetables? Fruit? We told her cherries are what they put in them and she... More

If you're looking for a restaurant and that turns back the clock to old Racine, this is it. It's running by just like it was 50 years ago. Food is ok, waitresses eager to please.

We always like the prime rib at the Corner House. Each time we are in the Racine area, we head there and it is a favorite of some friends from Milwaukee who meet us there.

Went there with friends that had never been there. They said they had a taste for prime rib so we took them to the best place for prime rib. To start I ordered a Virgin Mary, Bloody Mary without booze, and it was very good. Everyone ordered the prime rib but me and they enjoyed it with comments like "it... More

I have been here multiple times and plan on more to come. I have only had the prime rib but why change when it is so good. They also have a wonderful Baked French onion soup. I would recommend to friends and family.

Celebrating a birthday a group of 12, 6 adults and 6 older children. Food was disappointing. We eat here a few times a year, and gradually there has been a decline in quality. A half of rack of ribs included maybe 6 bones, not meaty either, the crab legs at market price, which you know is high, included 4 thin... More
