Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Would recommend this awesome restaurant for an anniversary or birthday date. Extremely pleased, exceptional service, catered to our needs and even inserted special gifts throughout the dinner. Make sure you let them know it's your anniversary, you'll be impressed.
We greatly enjoyed our Easter lunch. Everything was wonderful and the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because our steak selections weren't quite cooked to order. We had 4 selections ordered, 3 medium and one medium rare. The medium rare was medium and one of the mediums was perfect, one was medium rare and one was medium plus. Definitely will not keep us from going again. Food quality, service and ambience were great and enjoyable. We look forward to our next visit.
Southern Prime is fabulous! It's the only place in Southern Pines/Pinehurst where the acoustics allow for an intimate conversation. The food is delicious and prepared to perfection. Our server, William was very attentive without being intrusive. The dining room manager, Brandon, stopped by to make sure everything was to our liking. Even the owner, Mike, checked on us. This is a great place for high end dining on a special occasion, but not so expensive that we can't visit more often. This meal was a special menu for the Easter lunch, and it was outstanding. There were several tables of family groups, but the noise level was very low. We are looking forward to our next meal at Southern Prime!
Let me start with the food was amazing. Our waiter, Connor, was attentive and polite. However, the table they sat us at was very close to the staging area for all the kitchen and wait staff. Not to be unreasonable, I wasn't annoyed with the conversations until they became social and about sports. If the staff isn't busy then they need to be respective off the customers they do have. The volume kept getting louder and louder. A head waiter or boss keep coming back and asking them to stop talking. He did so over 3 times. It ruined the ambience of our special evening. I will go back but I will refuse this table if they offer it to us again.
Our service was outstanding. Anything that we wanted was promptly provided except for a little slowness in seating us. The tilefish was a feature and very good except entirely too salty. One of my friends had the ribeye and he was very disappointed that it wasn't as good as he expected. If this restaurant tightens up on their food a little I would recommend it. The service and ambiance of the restaurant were excellent.
My husband's request for the $30. steak he ordered to be cooked "medium" was pretty much
raw. The 2nd steak they delivered looked like a piece of charcoal...and still pretty rare. My mussels were okay...not a very good broth. Won't be back for quite some time.
We enjoyed our visit to Southern Prime. The service was outstanding!! The food, if we're being honest, is average though given the above average prices.
The appetizer, fried calamari, was not your typical rings of calamari but was instead long meaty portions, while good and extremely different, it just tasted like fried food. Nothing spectacular, no distinct taste.
My filet was great, while a little on the smaller side. It was the side dishes though, which you are charged individually for (they don't come with your meal!) that left me disappointed. So for something I had to pay extra for I would hope they would not disappoint. Brussels Sprouts reminded me of the disgusting boiled version my mother forced us to eat growing up...bitter, not much seasoning whatsoever and just disgusting. I wanted to spit it back into my napkin but refrained. The creamed spinach wasn't appealing either. It had a stronger type cheese (sorry I forget which kind) but just overall bitter and stinky, like stinky cheese. I took one bite of each and the rest of my family didn't touch either...
Great service though and our waiter was extremely professional and attentive!
Went there for my birthday and the staff and service was excellent. Food was very good but seemed a little pricey. Also ordered a Jameson's on the rocks and was charged $10, which wasn't too bad given that it was a well more than just a single shot but was charged $2 for the ice. Really!!
Out to dinner with a friend. Perfect choice. Steaks were very good, could have been a little thicker and we like our ribeye steaks bone in. It was perfectly cooked, the calamari appetizer was very good. Our server was very attentive.
Next time we're in town , we'll be back.
We arrived a few minutes early, but were still shown quickly to our table. Our server was prompt and polite. He knew the specials and the menu. Our drinks arrived promptly and the ticket time on our food was good. The noise level was low enough that my guest and I could have a conversation without difficulty. Overall, it was a great experience.
The overall experience was good. The temperature of our selections were perfect. Our steak could have been seasoned more, but it was a quality cut. Our table was not set for the correct amount of people in our party. The place settings were corrected promptly, but two of the participants were not given menus. They had to take them off of another table. The decor and restaurant appeared clean and very nice.
We were celebrating Valentine's Day Anne enjoyed our meals. The food was quite expensive, but we don't mind paying for quality especially for special occasions. However, we made a reservation in hopes of being seated in the actual dining room. Instead, we were seated at a table in the bar. That was very disappointing. When we made the reservation we did not know this was the case.
Fantastic service and the restaurant itself is beautiful. Their namesake rings true because the steaks were excellent. However, the meal fell short as a whole for us as far as the extras/side items are concerned. Not that they were bad by any means just not super exceptional compared to the steaks. Also, our food was served lukewarm at best (no fault to our waiter as he did not bring it out). All in all, a great place for a romantic date just not our favorite for the area.
We were very disappointed with our experience Monday evening. One of the orders seemed not to be what was ordered, a steak which was ordered, was not what was brought to the table.Our waiter was outstanding, and very solicitous. The restaurant was almost empty, so we were quite surprised with the quality of our food. We had dined at SP several times with great satisfaction, and chose SP because we were celebrating a birthday. However, we were very disappointed with the quality of our food.
I wanted to take my husband somewhere we had never been for his birthday. After looking at the menu and pictures of the restaurant I decided to book a reservation. We were in the wine room which only had three tables so it was very quiet and romantic. The interior is upscale and it felt like fine dining. Our dinners were exceptional and we look forward to returning.
Went for wife's birthday. Very nice quiet atmosphere. The restaurant placed some birthday graffiti on the table. That was a nice surprise for my wife. It was obvious the restaurant was ready for us. Service was outstanding. Southern Pine is a high class restaurant. Wine and food were excellent.
