The definition of smart dining: right here on the UW campus.

Steenbock’s on Orchard is the kind of restaurant that could only exist in a world-class research center. The Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery is a center for revolutionary ideas, and Steenbock’s does its surroundings proud. With its floor-to-ceiling windows and folding glass wall, it feels like a high-tech downtown destination…but its local, seasonal ingredients evoke a farm-to-table aesthetic. Whether you’re up for lunch, “winding down” after work or an elegant dinner, Steenbock’s is the intelligent choice.

Fresh, local ingredients in our incredible setting…or yours.

Chef Sean Fogarty has designed our American contemporary menu around fresh, organic, sustainably produced ingredients, for which Wisconsin is becoming increasingly renowned. We make all our food from scratch and serve it in our spacious dining rooms, small private room, al fresco on our covered terrace, in one of the beautiful event spaces in the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery, or catered in your home. Steenbock’s is happy to give your in-home special event the same high quality food and amazing service—even our incredible wine and beer list—that you’ll find in our restaurant.
