Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
In general okay. They way the Bruschetta was served with bread stacked and stuck together the cheese and toppings on the side made it difficult to share . Never saw it done this way. We come for the lobster Rangoon. The burger we had was mini-sized. Have had strip steak in past and was pleased. We would return for the steak although I have been told they are not primed steak??
Great ambiance, excellent service... a good place for an occasion or date however... Steaks were cooked to order but accompaning vegtables left a lot to be desired. Prices are premium which should indicate everything being top notch, unfortunately that wasn't the case.
Immaculate establishment, excellent wait staff and wonderful menu - to include spirits and wine list.
Food preparation: Seasoning in general, left me desiring and yearning for our Ruth/Chris Steak dining experiences. Nevertheless, the steaks were well cooked and sides dishes were adequately proportioned.
We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary on 7/6 at Southern Prime, everything was delicious !
The table with the heart confetti to the anniversary dessert. Thank you for making our evening so special!
We live in NJ and when we come to NC we love to have dinner with you.
Awesome as always
Celebrated my son and daughter-in-law's wedding anniversary. They had special table decorated for them which was very nice touch and appreciated. We all had steaks - ribeyes and filets and the steaks were cooked to perfection and we enjoyed them. Great restaurant to have conversation over dinner and received excellent service from the staff.
My husband and I had Southern Prime for my birthday dinner. The food was absolutely amazing. Steaks were cooked perfectly and the lobster rangoons app and lobster Mac & cheese were to die for. The best part of the experience was the service. Our server was Van and he was stellar. He gave great recommendations for steak and wine and made sure we had a fabulous experience. Totally worth it for a special occasion/date night!
I treated my significant other for a pre-Father's Day dinner. The service was phenomenal! The food was great & I would recommend SP to anyone. There are spaces for groups to celebrate special occasions, spaces in the bar for meet and greet & cozy tables & booths for romantic dinners. I have dined at SP numerous times & I have never been disappointed. Some may find the menu a little pricy, but I find it very affordable...not just for special occasions.
We had dinner at Southern Prime for the first time and had a WONDERFUL Pre-Fathers Day dinner. Service was fantastic and only topped by the meal. We've already planned to return on 6/25/2017 for our Anniversary Brunch. I've already recommended it to everyone I've run into since Saturday night! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Got together with friends to celebrate a birthday and anniversary. Were seated at a noisy booth adjacent to a group dinner and asked to have the piped in music turned down, which they did. My wife opted for a Misto Chopped Salad and Shrimp and Grits. Her salad greens (cabbage) were full of tough stems and the portion was quite small for $9. The grits in her entree were tasteless. I ordered the special "Bacon wrapped Monkfish" and the fish was tasty, but the burre blanc sauce and potatoes were likewise tasteless.
FInally, we thought a dessert was in order to finish our celebration and we chose the seasonal berry cobbler, which was awful. Looked like canned blueberries with a soft crust that had no crunch whatsoever. Very disappointed.
The calamari for appetizer were good without being great. The cast iron seared scallops were out-of-the-world delicious: tender and tasty. However, the "surf and turf" was wanting. The filet mignon was only "O.K.," and the smallish lobster tail likewise lacked flavor. The service was superb: friendly and efficient. The entire staff was smiling, accommodating, and impressively professional. But I'd rather the food - at least this small sample size - were as good as the service.
I should learn. Have never had a good experience here. The steaks are disappointing for a supposedly first rate steak house. The service is slow, maddeningly so. The kitchen even slower. Should be the perfect place to take out of town guests for a sophisticated dining experience in the Sand Hills but so far has never ( 4 times) worked out this way. Should learn. Have. Never again. Next time Walcott's.
I cannot honestly say that the quisine at Southern Prime quite matched the wonderful ambiance. I feel the meat entrees were without full flavor. In addition, the five adult meals were not served right off the grill. They were cold. Although he was very proper, knowledgeable regarding the menu, and professional, I would also suggest that Conner loosen up just a little and interact with his guests more.
We started off thinking that this would e a great evening and a great restaurant, boy it couldn't have been farther from the truth. Initially the host was very friendly and acomidating. It went down from there. The waiter never told us about specials. Only after we ordered did we hear another table being offered them. The wines are very overpriced. My fiancé had to send her sirloin ( that we don't think was sirloin at all and not aged as advertised) back 3 times and then it was overlooked. My 10oz lobster tail was 2 fives and undercooked. After paying we called the GM (Grant) to the table. He never offered any adjustment to the bill, only a give certificate towards another meal, like I would go back. Stay away especially if you are trying to impress someone.
From the second we walked in and were virtually ignored (the guy at the counter told us to wait as he obviously struggled with a computer screen while three young people stood around him as statues), to when our waiter took my empty entree plate off the table while my wife still worked on hers (not appropriate waiter etiquette), we have decided to forego any future trips to Southern Prime Steakhouse. My double-cut pork chop came with a repulsive sauce that sounded good from the menu, but when I asked for over 1/2 of it to be boxed (hoping our 5-month old puppy at home might be interested), our otherwise friendly waiter took no interest in asking me how it was - it was as if he knew. My wife's 8oz filet was a nice cut, but quite flavorless for some reason. The double vegetable for her side (the ever bland summer squash medley) was equally lacking.
Over the past 4+ years of dining here, the service and food quality has consistently slipped to the point where we are going to try Ironwood. Even the manager's "check-in" was lackluster and robotic. The two good items were the pineapple martinis we each had, and our salads were above average (a wedge and a green salad). We also got to sit in the wine room for the first time, and the atmosphere in there was cozy, quiet, and lovely (an 8-person table was sitting down as we were leaving, so I don't know how delightful it would have remained in that small space). Sorry to see Southern Prime get struck off our list, but they've had plenty of chances to wow us.
This is the place to go for your anniversary!! The food was outstanding, the ambience and music made it very relaxing. We were celebrating our 37th wedding anniversary and our waiter, Van, a true professional, arranged for a special surprise and a photo to remember our special day! I would highly recommend this special place.
