We sent my parents to Southern Prime for their 45th wedding anniversary and the restaurant staff exceeded my expectations. They took an anniversary photo my that they then gave them to take home. They also gave them a complimentary dessert with "Happy Anniversary " written a dessert sauce and their table was decorated. My parents were very pleased with the whole experience.

MY steak was a little over done. Wish they didn't butterfly a small filet. Over all food was good, but not Ruth Chris's. Service was great as was the dining experience.

Not nearly as good on this outing as we have had in the past. The Shrimp and Grits was very salty and had liquid sitting around the sides that I wasn't sure wasn't fat.

Southern Prime Steakhouse
My wife and I were very excited about trying out the Southern Prime Steakhouse. We had heard it was good but very expensive. We decided, after a very busy first half of the year, to splurge and try it out. Our first impressions was it had a phenomenal atmosphere. We started off with the Lobster Rangoon which was incredible. The steak fries with Parmesan & truffles and aioli sauce was also amazing. My wife remarked how great even the butter was. Our problem came with the main course. My wife's steak was cooked perfectly but my ribeye and lobster were slightly overcooked and a little dry. My plate was also much hotter than my wife's so my guess was it sat under the heat lamp for too long waiting on my wife's filet mignon. Normally I could easily forgive such a mistake but for the prices we were paying I was expecting close to perfection. Visually the steak also suffered. It looked chewed up and deformed. I'm not sure if this was due to the aging process or not but it wasn't what I was expecting. The flavor itself I would categorize as "good". I've had just as good of steaks at any chain steakhouse for half the price. The service was good. We were very happy with our server and overall it was a good experience.
My wife and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary at Southern Prime. Great meal, great service, and they even provided a picture of our event. We will be going back more often.
5 miles from Pinehurst Carloina Inn
Southern Pines Steakhouse is worth the trip. Good food and service in a casual environment. We ate in the bar off the regular menu. They had a few specials and great steaks. The cocktails were made to perfection. I always eat here when I come to Pinehurst.
Had a great waiter that provided reattach service. Very happy with everything was great and came out well prepared. Wouldn't recommend taking kids though as it's a very nice restaurant.

it was my birthday and since we had dinner there on our anniversary last yr and really enjoyed it, we decided to celebrate my birthday (5/10/16) at Southern Prime. Actually our 3rd visit as we had been there once b4 w/friends--the same friends who came w/us this recent time. great food, wonderful ambiance and everyone so nice. Loved the complimentary funnel cake w/candles--such a special touch. we'll be back soon.
The food was delicious -- although, I would have liked to have been able to select from their usual Brunch Menu (which is awesome !) They had a special Mother's Day menu instead --- while wonderful, their brunch is worth the trip !!!
Very disappointed ...
We ordered The Lobster Rangoon as an app and it was way too fishy. I had ordered the scallop dish.... It was cold when I received it. The scallops were drenched in this salty lobster reduction sauce. Our bill was well over $100..... It is very hard paying that money when you aren't completely satisfied
great atmosphere, great staff and great food! My wife and had dinner for our 19th year anniversary, it was a great place. I can't wait until I go back! we drove an hour just to get there

Great food as usual. My mushrooms were cold but I asked to have them warmed up and it was rectified right away. Great place
NY style meets Souther Prime!
Overall a good, not great dining experience. We arrived and were promptly seated for our reservation. Not very crowded for a Sunday evening, but it did pick up as the evening progressed (we had an early evening reservation). The cheese plate appetizer is highly recommended although the ricotta was a bit dry. Ordered the Ribeye au-Poivre and felt it would be the first test as to whether or not this was a true steak house. Would the server ask how I wanted it cooked? Any steak connoisseur knows that au-Poivre is only cooked medium rare in a steak house. The young lady asked, so a few style points were lost here. Requested it med-rare, as any respectable meat eater would. My wife ordered the burger and requested it cooked the same. When the meals arrived they smelled and looked amazing. Only one issue with the ribeye was it was an au-Poivre sauces and not the traditional coffee/peppercorn crust I was used to. The steak and the burger were both slightly over cooked. The server did offer to have new portions prepared, but we were famished from a long hard day. The manager made his rounds and promptly apologized for the oversight and offered a desert for our trouble. We obliged him and tried the Crème Brule with fresh seasonal berries. The sugar crust was perfect and the custard was spot on. We were not blown away, but will definitely be giving this neighborhood gem another go around.
Everything great first two visits. Server seemed very slow and one serving (a waffle) had to be redone. This was our third visit but look forward to going back.
Southern Prime a prime eating experience
Enjoyed a dinner at Southern Prime with a visitor from out of town. He had dined there before and requested a return reservation. While the first experience was not perfect (meals came out at different times after a long wait), the ambience was such that made us try again. This time it was great - food, timing of service, etc. Wait staff very sensitive to our desire not to rush but to be diligent about when we were ready.

Careful on how you order the temperature of your steak. Seems like the chefs need a refresher course on Rare, Med Rare, Med. everything else was good. Service was a bit inattentive.

Our server was outstanding. The lobster bisque was very good as was the salmon , veal and NY Strip. However the ribeye was disappointing - very fatty. I expected better quality from a prime steakhouse.

The aged steak (I had the ribeye) was to die for. Never tried it before , but given the flavors and texture and presentation , I will be ordering this again whenever it is on the menu.
The atmosphere was better than the food.
The atmosphere was great, a nice romantic feel. Our waiter seemed new and nervous but overall gave good service. We had the calamari as an appetizer and it was OK, nothing special. The main entrées were good but the steak was served with mediocre veggies and potatoes.

service excellent, Talia attentive, engaging and attentive. Food overall very good. I did have to return my ribeye as it was med well instead of med rare. came back at the right temp but under seasoned. nice cut and the rest of our table enjoyed their prime rib.
An Excellent Meal & Gracious Service
We truly enjoyed our experience at Southern Prime. The decor is charming, the seating comfortable, and the food choices varied. Our server Genevieve was well informed, gracious and accommodating. We were celebrating a birthday and they had pre-decorated out table with subtle birthday confetti - nice touch. We found no faults at all with our experience at Southern Prime and will return in the future.

Dinner last week and Brunch today was very good food and service.
Wonderful Southern Pines Welcome!
Right off the bat I loved that the color of the restaurant was blue - not the typical dark rustic red of the traditional Chicago steakhouses I am accustomed to. We were here on my first night upon moving to Southern Pines. From the service, to the side dishes, and my steak - everything was spectacular! I will be back upon my next big celebration! This endorsement is coming from a girl who was raised on Chicago steakhouses - big thumbs up!

This is what Pinehurst area has been lacking for years. A high quality Steak House for the golfers to relax in after golf. The only problem is that it is a 15 minute drive from Pinehurst proper. But if you have a DD, it's totally worth it. Check this place out!
I had envisioned a quiet dinner without our kids, which doesn't happen very often. Well, that didn't happen here. We had a babysitter for our kids and we get seated beside a table with two very energetic children and an even louder parent. The place was empty and we could have been seated in a dozen of different tables. Our sweet tea was so sweet that we could not drink it. Finally after asking 3 different people we were brought some unsweetened tea, which was not what we wanted. We wanted a normal glass of sweet tea that didn't contain enough sugar that it would choke a horse. Our waitress informed us that she tried the sweet tea and that it was not made properly. We ordered steaks. My wife always orders well done; half of one side was well done and the other half was oozing blood. How do you do that? I can only guess that half of the grill was not on. I ordered a ribeye (medium well) and it was medium at best and had a lot of blood. Anyway, we were disappointed in the evening and dinner at Southern Prime Steakhouse.
Nice place. Great for date night.
Enjoyed dinner. Great wine list the steaks were prepared as ordered and tasted great Service was good but could have been better considering the staff on hand. Polite staff and great ambiance. Would recommend for adult date night. Ok for older teen kids but not good for younger ones
Nice for a special occasion. Will go back.
First time dining here. Very good meal, nice restaurant for a special occasion.
A great evening!
My wife and I had a great evening! She has several diet restrictions and they were very accommodating. We will defiantly be back.
We had an excellent experience from start to finish at this upscale steakhouse! The service was top notch and the food was good. My wife ordered the ribeye and I had the fillet mignon. Both meals were prepared properly and served well. We also had the lobster rangoon appetizer which was quite good. We did not order wine. Neither of us are "foodies," and we can only afford this type of dining once in a while, but we both enjoyed our romantic evening.
