1. Carnevor Steakhouse Moderne 724 N Milwaukee St, Milwaukee, WI 53202

This is one of the spots in Milwaukee, with a decent chance of local celebrity (or Greenbay Packer) sighting. The menu includes (amazing, but expensive) kobe beef, USDA prime beef, and a wine list with more than 400 (!!!) selections.

2. Mason Street Grill 425 E Mason St, Milwaukee, WI 53202

Situated in the historic Pfister Hotel, this sophisticated steakhouse serves elevated New American fare. Providing they don’t forget their suit coat, meat lovers can savor signature favorites like the eponymous Mason Street Grill Burger: Black Angus Chuck impeccably cooked to your preferred temperature, topped with honey-glazed onions, tangy house relish, and melted muenster. Whatever you order, we suggest you pair your steak with a bold glass of red wine, and relax in the warm glow of this leather-upholstered, sleek dinner spot.

3. Five O'Clock Steakhouse 2416 W State St, Milwaukee, WI 53233

This supper-club steakhouse serves up meat and potatoes in giant portions. Start your meal off with a brandy Old Fashioned; cold Shrimp Cocktail; and complimentary Relish Tray, iceberg-lettuce salad, and dressing caddy before you polish off that porterhouse. It’s quintessential Wisconsin.

4. Eddie Martini's 8612 W Watertown Plank Rd, Milwaukee, WI 53226

This place feels like an upscale, old-school, supper club, but the steaks and seafood make it clear that this is definitely a full fledged chophouse. The steaks are premium midwestern beef, from the angus short ribs, to the dry-aged prime sirloin, to the filet mignon (which comes in 6 oz, 8 oz, and 16 oz bone-in cuts).

5. Jackson Grill 3736 W Mitchell St, Milwaukee, WI 53215

Chef Jimmy Jackson learned to cook at his father's restaurant (Ray Jackson's) under Jahn Kramph. Now he helms this spot, which calls itself "Milwaukee's Supper Club." The steaks are phenomenal, and most of them come topped with mushroom, gorgonzola butter, or creme bordelaise.

6. Mr B's - A Bartolotta Steakhouse 18380 W Capitol Dr, Brookfield, WI 53045

A bit outside the city, in Brookfield, this steakhouse is serving wood-burning oven cooked steaks with killer sears and a wood smoke flavor. Pro Tip: Check out the patio during the warmer months.

7. Dream Dance Steak 1721 W Canal St, Milwaukee, WI 53233

Ignore the slot machines and bingo, and keep walking through the Potawatomi casino until you get to Dream Dance. It will exceed your (probably low) standards for casino restaurants and you'll probably get more out of your money than you would feeding it into the slots. Also they have kangaroo steaks, which is a real thing.

8. Ward's House of Prime 540 E Mason St, Milwaukee, WI 53202

Where else can you find prime rib entrees stretching from 8 ounces all the way up to 168 insane ounces? (Side note: WHY?) If you simply can't get enough prime rib, this is the place to go. They also have filets, NY strip, lamb chops, chicken and seafood.

9. The Packing House 900 E Layton Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53207

After over 30 years of supper club-ing, this spot has found its place again with a younger crowd. The classic menu includes stuffed mushrooms, shrimp cocktail, beef Wellington, prime rib, lobster thermidor, and steak au poivre.

The menu at this spot is full of steak options, and what else does a steakhouse really need? Choose your meat, choose your side, and choose your upgrade -- and it's all set.
