Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
We had an excellent dinner at Southern Prime Steakhouse before going to the cinema. We both started with the Lobster Bisque, which was well flavored and had pieces of lobster in it. I had the Scallops and my husband had the Prime Rib as an entree, both were perfectly prepared and delicious. For dessert we both had the Raspberry Sorbet which was ever so tasty. The service was excellent and friendly. I definitely recommend the restaurant, especially for a special occasion.
Not the evening we hoped for. The server spilled tea on me and seemed to imply it was because I requested extra ice. All smaller steaks came out barely lukewarm, large steak was very good. Previous visits much better, we were very disappointed. Had brought family from out of town expecting a great experience to celebrate birthday.
I really hate to say this because we do like this restaurant but our meals this time were not good. Prime rib was so tough that it was almost inedible. Cold mashed potatoes and soggy vegetables. Server was good and attentive but don't know if we will be back.
This was the second time that I visited Southern Prime. The first time I ordered their signature steak, which was under-cooked and had to be returned. I was not impressed with the quality of the food or the service that evening. This time, I ordered the encrusted salmon from their special Christmas menu. That included a few fingerling potatoes and a small compote of vegetables buried under the salmon. The salmon was OK, but pretty dry. I ordered a lettuce wedge that wasn't a wedge, but a plate of lettuce topped with blue cheese and bacon. That was just OK as well. The waiter was not as friendly or attentive as he should have been, especially considering the holiday, but I've had worse. All in all, it would have been fine, except the bill was really high for the dinner, salad, a few pieces of sour dough bread and a glass of house wine. There are several other fine alternatives here, so I would have no reason to return to Southern Prime.
Made reservations for a birthday dinner with family in town. The staff decorated the table with birthday confetti and multiple people came by to say happy birthday. The food was AMAZING! We ordered the shrimp and grits for an appetizer; 2 filets, prime rib and the sea scallops for dinners, and a crème brule for dessert. We were also given a free lava cake for the birthday. All of it was so good. We also enjoyed cocktails and they do not skimp on the liquor and taste dangerously good. Overall an excellent visit I just wish we could have sat in the wine room. Hopefully next time!
My wife and I chose Southern Prime for our anniversary dinner...and we could not have made a better choice. From the start, we were treated very well, above and beyond what we expected. Not only was the food amazing, but the service was top-notch. Thank you for a fantastic and memorable experience - we'll be back!
Service very slow it took forever to get drinks and put our orders in. Wait staff need to be trained on how to serve in an upscale restaurant properly. Prime rib awful. I have ordered it on 2 different occasions and is was cooked wrong and taste more like roast beef!
My wife and I had a pleasant dinner on the wine room. The food and service was good. Only negative was (thankfully) as we were waiting for our bill 6 men came in and sat close by, very loud, obnoxious and dressed in jeans. At least they took their hats off. I think a restaurant that has its own separate wine dining room ought to have a dress code. People going to this restaurant wine white tablecloths good ambiance tend to “dress” up. Thankfully we were able to leave before our quiet dinner was ruined
A great steakhouse! They prepare steak perfectly and you have the option for a variety of toppings. My wife chose a bernaise sauce, I went with a Gorgonzola crust. Both were delicious. Our server, Megan, was perfect, giving us just the right mix of being there for us while letting us keep our privacy. This was as good as any of the big steakhouses in Chicago?
Had a reservation for a Saturday night. Arrived on time. The table they offered was in a separate room where there was party of 14 already dining.
I requested another table and was informed that they could not accommodate my request because there were no other tables. I was literally looking at 4 empty tables. I pushed a bit more and the hostess told the manager who visibly displayed his annoyance, not aware that I was standing right there and could see him.
Finally seated in a nice booth. Comfortable. I would recommend the booth if you are a group of 4. Nice to the watch the goings on.
We were steered to the lobster Rangoon to share, which was a mistake. No lobster noticeable. Cream cheese inside a fried wonton. Shouldn't be served.
The rest of our meals were just ok. My daughter's fillet came out under cooked. It's a steakhouse, how do they screw up the steak?
My pork chop was ok. Rather boring. The side of sweet potato and corn hash was the best thing in my plate.
My wife's salad and salmon were, ehhh.
To top it off our waiter forgot to bring items and then told us, "it has been a pleasure of my life serving you." What? Who speaks like that? Very forced.
There's nothing wrong with the place, just nothing that good either.
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last weekend at the Southern Prime Steakhouse. The staff was very friendly and attentive (What more could you ask for?). I ordered the Prime Rib and my wife ordered the Sea Scallops. I have to say that the prime rib was sub par. Also, the Au Jus wasn't very exciting. It was pallatable, but I didn't want to complain. My wife's sea scallops were absolutely phenomenal. We have every intention of visiting this establishment again.
Also, our waiter's name was Rami. Very good waiter. Everything else about the visit was exceptional down to every detail. We have every intention of visiting this establishment again.
I'm a local and had a bad experience over a year ago, so I hadn't been back until now. I decided to give it another try because we were meeting friends who wanted to dine at the bar at a nice restaurant. So. Prime is well-suited (has a large bar) plus has great atmosphere. It took a while for anyone to take our drink order and even longer for our meals to be delivered, neither of which was a huge issue since we were enjoying catching up with our friends. The biggest disappointment was that I'd ordered an appetizer as a meal, and mine was served 45 minutes before everyone elses. Our bartender/waiter who hadn't been very attentive to us all night, seemed oblivious to our situation. The food and service have never been great, and prices are high relative to other fine dining options in the area so I'll go elsewhere for fine dining
- Ironwood, Chef Warren's, 195, Elliotts - all offer better food and service.
One of our favorite restaurants in all of North Carolina. We were celebrating his retirement from the military and the evening could not have been more special. From the food to the ambience, this restaurant always does it right! We will see them again soon!
Went here to celebrate my boyfriends birthday with another couple and had a great time! They put birthday confetti on the table and brought him a delicious surprise dessert. The service was great and they did a nice job of going over the menu with us since it was everyone’s first time dining with there. Food was delicious! We would definitely go back again for a special occasion!
