The Tornado Steak House

The Tornado Steak House

Tucked just off the corner of the Capitol building, this unassuming “hole in the wall,” surprises as an elegant, cozy throwback to the days of the elusive “supper club.” Half-moon lounge booths, dim lighting and captain’s chairs at the bar are just part of what make this place seem frozen in time. The small menu consists of bone-in tenderloin, rack of lamb, venison and pan-roasted duck, as well as sea scallops in heavy cream, hashbrowns and Yorkshire pudding. They also offer that famous Wisconsin Friday Fish Fry and a late night menu of gourmet burgers and sandwiches.
