Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
WAITED 10 MIN. FOR SOMEONE TO COME TO OUR TABLE. DRINKS ORDERED ; TOOK QUITE SOME TIME. 1ST COURSE WAS EXCELLENT . BREAD NEVER CAME ; THEN ASKED FOR SOME. FINISHED OUR DRINKS NEVER ASKED IF I WOULD LIKE ANOTHER. MAIN COURSE CAME WAS VERY GOOD. OUT OF BREAD NEVER REPLACED.FINALLY ASKED A STAFF PASSING BY IF WE COULD KINDLY HAVE MORE BREAD.THIS WAS TO BE A SPECIAL NIGHT MY WIFE'S BIRTHDAY AND IT WAS SUB PAR!! I HAVE TOLD SOME OF MY FRIENDS OF THE EXPERIENCE AND THEY SAID THEY HAD THE SAME.
The restaurant is beautiful, very masculine feeling. I reserved on opentable for Mother's Day Brunch, which looked delicious and perfect for my mother. After driving an hour, we were given the special mother's day menu which was their normal dinner menu. It was a very heavy menu, leaning toward red meats and potatoes. I would not have picked this menu for my mother or for me, but by the time we got there, it was too late to make any other plans. The last time I reserved on open table for a holiday and the restaurant changed the menu, they called and verified I would still want the reservation with the changes. I will say the food and service were impeccable; and with the large serving we were able to take home enough for my mom to get another meal.
The steaks were cooked to perfection. My husband had the scallops and were exquisite. We were seated in the wine room which had over 900 bottles of wine. Our waitress was very attentive. The host Matt, was extremely professional and knowledgeable. We will definitely try this restaurant again on our next visit to the area.
Fantastic service and good food. Lobster mac as an app is highly recommended. I would recommend for any special occasion or whenever you are looking for a nice steak.
Note.. I found medium rare was Cooked more to the medium side. Take this into consideration when ordering.
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.
I treated my father to dinner at the end of our golf trip in Southern Pines, NC. It was the best possible way for us to conclude our golf vacation. Hands down the best dirty martini I've ever had poured and served by the classy and charming bartender Britney (Brittany?) It was also nice to talk sports with her, mostly hockey as she's an avid Washington Capitals fan. So our conversation wasn't the usual clichéd fanfare.
Regarding our dinner? Phenomenal. My steak was cooked perfectly with a beautiful char on the outside and a warm, tender and slightly pink inside. I devoured it but savored every bite.
Occasionally the host - my apologies I forgot his name - would stop by and talk to my dad and me and it was very pleasant and humorous conversation. Sometimes when the staff stops by to chat with you it can get boorish or awkward, but this was neither of those.
I had a truly great experience at Southern Prime. The ambiance was great, the company was better and the drinks were fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially for the out-of-towners who go there on golf vacations and are looking to enhance their trip with truly fine dining.
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.
