This place has a lot of loyal employees, bartenders, servers, bus people...it has been our go to place for 40 years. I am writing in hopes that the owners will take notice and do this place the service it deserves. Our second visit with a terrible petite filet, how hard is that for a steak house? The first was ordered... More

Visited here and had the filet. It was cooked to my liking and the servers were a little less than pleasant

A classic, throw-back restaurant where lots of the men wear sports coats, the ladies look nice, drinks are good, food is excellent, and linen on the tables - all for a very reasonable price, probably because the place is old and the neighborhood not so good (but not dangerous). Way better than Eddie Martini's in Milwaukee, and a lot less.

If you like prime rib, they say it's awesome. They make a good steak, but it seems so old-fashioned to me. Maybe that's the charm.

You can't beat this place for prime rib. The five people I was with all got prime rib or filet and were very happy. I got the veal parmigiana and it was excellent. Always nice fresh salad and several homemade soup choices. I would like to see a remodel job some day to improve the atmosphere but the food is... More

The Corner House has been family run for generations! If you're looking for a good old fashioned steak house this is your place. Consistently good! Steaks and prime rib are generous in size, reasonably priced and cooked to perfection. There were twelve in our party and everyone was very pleased with their selections. Highly recommend!

The last of the good places in Racine to eat....good value for your money. Quality steaks and good fish....prime rib, well it's just OK. Oyster rocker are excellent....usually a quality homemade soup. Also love the shrimp dejon and house salads are crisp and cold.
