Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

This was my second visit. The first was a party in a private room which was lovely. This time there were only three of us and we all had a wonderful time. The food was outstanding and the service was top notch! We will definitely be back during our next visit to the area.

This place exceeded my expectations in every way. The appetizers and entrees that my party ordered were all outstanding. The server was knowledgeable and appropriately attentive. He went above and beyond to accommodate us - splitting items that we wanted to share. I thought that the prices were very reasonable for the quantity and quality. I loved the old school ambience.
Filets were excellent as always; perfect ...
Filets were excellent as always; perfectly cut and cooked. Prime rib dinner surprisingly was over salted. In retrospect appears someone may have inadvertently spilled salt onto plate as sections were shared. Would have sent back immediately were it not for the fact that initially the individual ordering felt the dish was ok. However, after finally eating from the saltier area shared with others did the issues become fully apparent. Mentioned to waiter who politely responded that he wished he had known before much of the dish was eaten. Not that this should occur again as I remain convinced this was a likely salt spill. however will without hesitation send back immediately in the future.

Our table was the nearest one to the main entrance and every time the door was opened, we felt the cold air rushing in. The noise was a bit much and rivaled the ambience that the restaurant attempts to set. The food, although pricy for the quality we received, was absolutely delicious and well flavored. Our waiter was courteous and attentive. Just that little bit was enough to distract us so that we enjoyed our night. Reading the reviews, it seems that the restaurant struggles with consistency but try it for yourself and maybe you'll like it.

The Eggs Benedict were absolutely delicious! I can't wait to come back again for this dish! Everyone else had the French toast and seemed to enjoy. The people at the door were wonderful when we first came in and even went the extra step to open the door on our exit. Very nice touch. The actual service was a little lackluster. We were one of two tables in the restaurant which was why I thought the service from our waiter was a touch subpar. We went a long time without being greeted and a long time without receiving waters or menus. We were there right at 11:30, which excuses the menus, but not being greeted and asked about beverages was not a good sign. It took far too long for our server to come back and take the order after we finally received our menus and throughout the meal, we sat with empty water glasses. All in all, great food but slow service. Brunch took over an hour for a party of 4.

My husband and I found Southern Prime on a whim. We were celebrating our 1st anniversary and found it on Open Table. We were very pleased. We decided to sit at the bar so we could watch our football games (yes, very romantic) and the entire experience was very enjoyable. We got soup, wine, ordered the filet and lobster and two sides it was really good and seemed like a great value for all of the food and wine that we received.
Our waiter was very well informed and friendly! We will be back!

Nice local restaurant. Great service and good food. However the wine list was a bit limited and the wines were extremely overpriced. Still, we weren't disappointed in the meal, which is a change of pace! I would certainly recommend it to friends and may use t in the future for business meetings. We're definitely looking forward to trying their brunch!

This was our second special occasion going there and it never disappoints. Our two favorite menu items are the crème brulé and lobster gouda mac and cheese. Everything is always cooked perfectly and the staff is always wonderful! We recommend this place to anyone.

This was our first trip to Southern Prime and we were highly impressed. It's a classy place and everything was wonderful. Our server, Ryan, was very personable and very helpful regarding food and wine choices. Our filets were cooked perfectly. We will definitely go back to try other menu items. A bit pricey, but we thought well worth it!

Our group of 16 does an annual golf trip and the other part of our trip is finding good food especially a good steak dinner. Southern Prime Steakhouse lived up to their name. Steaks (ribeye, filet or sirloin) were excellent and cooked to perfection. The seafood and chicken dishes were also excellent. For serving a large group the food items were brought out timely and hot. The wine list was excellent and drinks from the bar were perfectly made. The group enjoyed the food, service and atmosphere so much the first night that we did something that we have never done in the 12 years of this group-we returned to a restaurant for a second night. Excellent on both nights. Southern Prime Steakhouse is highly recommended

This a great restaurant for special occasions. It was our wedding anniversary so we wanted to try something new. The food was excellent. The steak is highly recommended, but my wife had a shrimp dish and she loved it, too. The wait staff was great, too. Our main waitress was very knowledgeable, friendly, and gave service with a smile. She was also able to make recommendations and answer all questions about different meal options.
The lighting was a little bright. As this was a romantic meal, a dimly lit dining area would have been ideal. There also was a gathering in the back room that was a little loud with laughter at times. Neither of these are deal breakers and we definitely will be back again.
Overall this is a top notch restaurant. We went away pleased and are already making plans to return.

Very good service, food was very good also. My wife's filet was a little bland but my prime rib was freikin' awesome. Great wine selection and very nice bar drinks. Only draw back was that a large party got sat next to us with a table of 10 kids so it became a little more noisy. The wait staff for that large party was doing a great job especially with the table of 10 kids in explaining the menu and getting them items that they would actually enjoy....bravo, well done

We had 16 in Pinehurst for a High School reunion golf weekend.
Southern Prime offered to us a room so we could be ourselves and not interrupt other customers in the main dining area of the restaurant. The service was outstanding, we never had to ask for anything.
The food arrived all together and met our expectation.
You can tell this restaurant understands and caters to these type of large groups as well as offering a nice main dining experience for a couple enjoying dinner together.
Job well done.

Our server was totally unacceptable. She started out offering us drinks, which we ordered. Then said, "You want to order now?" No specials offered until we asked what they were. One steak came back Medium to Medium Well not Medium Rare (the manager refunded the cost or the steak.) When the checks came they were totally incorrect. My dinner and one glass of wine was charger to our friends check. She had to go back and redo it and still had it incorrect, but we settled in among ourselves.
We (both couples) have been to Southern Prime numerous times and we have never run into a server like this young lady. Service has always been excellent. She boardered on being rude besides incompetitent!

For our wedding anniversary in June our son and daughter-in-law gave us a gift card. We decided to use it to celebrate my wife's birthday last week, and sure glad we did. We had a wonderful meal, and the service was great! Really liked the atmosphere and will definitely return.

Another great experience at Southern Prime, my wife and I went to celebrate our 1st anniversary and the staff took great care of us. The food was amazing and Ryan our server was attentive and knowledgeable. We could have done without the loudmouth in the booth behind us but otherwise a great experience. One of our favorites.

Our steaks were not cooked to order and although the staff was nice and attentive, their timeliness could have been better. We ate here for our parents 50th anniversary. They did make a special dessert for them; however, they brought their dessert out and then took the rest of our family's dessert order. So we were all eating desserts at times. For their specialty being steak, i would expect them to know how to properly cook it. Very disappointed.

We celebrated my Birthday with a my Mom and a few friends. There were many choices on the menu that were helpful since I brought Vegetarians to a Steak House! Everyone loved the food and the service was wonderful! We had a great evening out! Thanks!

Have eaten here a few times in the last year, but this time I was disappointed. The server seemed infatuated with the table next to us, the wedge salad was chopped or they sent the wrong thing. . We never received our sides and no one checked if we were pleased.

were seated next to a very loud talking table, even tho the restaurant was practically empty!
service efficient , tho not terribly friendly.
our medium well steaks were well done and very dry, tasteless....not a fan of broccolini.
not exactly the warm cozy romantic feeling we had hoped for on a special occasion!

Service was not good. Waited 10 minutes for water to be refilled, and had to ask to have done.
Only one other table with customers in there. Asked for steaks to be done medium rare and medium, both were over cooked. The amount of money we spent for the service and meal was out of balance. I would expect that type of bad food experience from a low budget restaurant not one that is $30/$40 per plate. Will NOT go back and have already recommended that people not go. No wonder there was only one other couple there at 6pm.
The overall service was more of a group ...
The overall service was more of a group of high school kids playing at what they thought was a high end restaurant than actual service. The food was mediocre and not worth the premium paid. My ribeye had more gristle and fat than actual meat. My wife and I were on a date and had a business dinner placed right next to us when most of the room was still empty. Ruined the rest of our dinner. Would not recommend.

After celebrating my birthday here on our first visit to this restaurant earlier this month we returned this time with out-of-town guests. All four of us loved every aspect of the food, service and ambiance. It was Sunday night and very quiet--the restaurant was crowded on the Friday night of our first visit but on both occasions Service, food and ambiance were great. We especially enjoyed the Lobster Rangoon appy and the ribeye and filet steaks that come with your choice of toppings/sauces.
