“So so”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

Went the just recently the service was so so, had to wait what seemed like forever to get a drink. The food is so so big portions but why was my steak frozen and that came from the chief. Will never go back again.

“Great place for group”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

I'm fortunate enough to be able to travel to Madison, Wisconsin for work. I've been to the Prime Quarter twice now. This is a great place to take a group of people and get to know one another better.

The idea behind this place is you cook your own steak. Huge raised open grills are inside where you first select your cut of meat from a glass front fridge. They had NY strip, filet, etc. (they have more choices but they had me at filet!) You cook it how you want, season it to your taste with salt, garlic salt, pepper, brazing sauces. While you're doing this, you're having a drink and chatting with others in your group or making new friends. For those who don't want to cook their own, for an additional $2 an employee will cook it for you. You can also grill up some Texas toast.

The cuts of beet are high quality and very tasty. The other vegatables are good as well. Best of all, the prices are reasonable. Heading back to Madison in early November 2012 and stopping by there again. Delicious!

“Must go again soon!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

We have not been to the Prime Quarter recently, but in the past the food was always fresh. The meat is wonderful, the salads were great and the bread delicious. Very good value for the money.

“Best Value for Steaks!”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Coming from a big city, a steak dinner for less than $30 per person is unheard of! Our T-Bone steaks were huge and while I have had better at pricier steak houses, you really can't complain about the value. I wish the steak had more of a char on the outside (we asked to have them cooked for us) and the salad bar was disappointing but the Texas toast was one of the highlights of the meal and the price of our bottle of wine was just as good as the steaks!

Sure you can go to Ruth Chris for steaks in Madison and you will have a great dinner. But pay half the price and you probably won't leave disappointed.
