Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

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 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.

We dined at Southern Prime on a Tuesday evening with good friends. We weren't disappointed with the food or service. Austin was our waiter and did a wonderful job! I ordered one of the specials, the veal chop which was out of this world! Everyone seemed very happy with their choices. We sat in the main dining room at a round table. It was a slow evening for the restaurant but we didn't care as we all very satisfied. The manager came over as well to see if
everything was satisfactory. Well worth the trip.

I had the Prime Rib with a side of Lobster Mac and Cheese. The Lobster Mac and Cheese was good, however it came out so hot, it was watery in texture and could have had more lobster. The steak I would have said was good, however it unfortunately interrupted my shower hours later three times. While its partly my fault for having ordered it rare, I've had steaks that rare and not gotten sick. So thats why I'm going down the middle with 3 stars. My BF ordered the Cioppino and the sauce for it was divine. Very complex and garlicky. The creme brulee was also good.

We went her to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary and the evening was perfect. The food and drinks were wonderful and the staff was so welcoming and sweet. Our table was decorated with heart confetti and we were given a complimentary desert. I will definitely be back as well as recommend Southern Prime to all my friends.

We recently moved to the area and heard great things about Southern Prime so we figured we would give it a try for a birthday dinner!! They went above and beyond and can't say enough great things about this restaurant.

Joey and I celebrated his success at winning a tournament at Pinehurst. I had the "special" Halibut and he had the Ribeye. Both were fantastic. The service was superb. It was a great dining experience and we would recommend the Southern Prime Steakhouse to anyone visiting the Southern Pine/Pinehurst area.

Been many times and bar-area is our favorite. You get the whole menu but it's at tall wood tables instead of white-cloth ones in main dining room. Usually a great bartender (the woman who manages it is the best).
Appetizers can be good and are often generous; I know several people who order one with a salad as their whole meal. Lobster Rangoon is popular though I don't care for it; must be me. Salads can be good especially the Caesar which is the real deal. Soups are always good (Lobster Bisque!). We never order beef here as my husband does it far better. But their fish dishes are their best anyway! Creative and usually just the right size. (This time mine got pretty salty as it cooled, which I'll mention to them the next time I order it.)
Also don't care for the desserts, but I very rarely do desserts anywhere.
All in all I continue to recommend Southern Prime as it's one of the best in the area.

For my husband's birthday celebration we had brunch for four adults and two young children. The service was wonderful. The restaurant scattered birthday confetti on the table and took a complementary photo of our group that they gave us in a cardboard frame. Everyone had something different, and everyone loved their food, even the youngsters.

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.
