Milwaukee's premier steakhouse, Carnevor is one of Wisconsin's most acclaimed fine dining destinations. A restaurant consistently topping year-end "Best Of" lists, Carnevor has been lauded for its variety of culinary tastes - from our luscious barrel-cut beef to mouthwatering New York Strips and bone-in fillets. Our steak menu offers exquisite wet- and dry-aged USDA prime beef - a distinction afforded to less than two percent of all American beef - as well as daily selections of the coveted, tender wagyu. And with a wine list featuring more than 750 selections, you'll always find the perfect bottle to uncork with your meal. But it's not merely the "meal" you'll enjoy at Carnevor. It' the entire experience: service, music, menu, and more. To top it all, herbivores are always welcome.
