The Prime Rib Restaurant & Wine Cellar Ratings and Reviews
This was our first visit and definitely will not be our last. The food was served hot and with generous portions. The dessert is to die for; the raspberries and Russian cream was amazing! Our server was very attentive and so friendly. The ambience was perfect. The prices are great for the quality of food and dining experience.
As always, a great meal
Fabulous meal, as always. Never fails to be a super dining experience and the food is terrific.
Tony is a GOOD GUY and a VERY good waiter. Good service turns good food into a GREAT dinner
Very nice experience.
We had a group of eight that did not all arrive together. The waitress was very attentive and greeted each guest as soon as they were seated. She remembered each person's order and checked on us regularly but did not hover.

The prime rib was excellent.
Our server was attentive and fun. We travel quite a bit and stop for Prime Rib as much as possible. This is definitely one of our favorites. The atmosphere was relaxing.

Great food, extensive wine list. A must stop when we travel this way.
Food was good for3 out of 4 of us. The prime melt that was ordered came to us cold and the au jus was cold also. Not the sandwich I was looking for. Our waitress however seemed spacey . She checked on us occasionally and the weird part was we asked about dessert and she said she would be right back with dessert options and came back in just two minutes with our bill and brought the dessert menus to a different table that was just starting on salads. So we left. The 3 who had steaks enjoyed their meals but the prime melt was awful.
Great Gillette Restaurant!
In Gillette for a convention, and the restaurant was so good that we went back a second night! Extensive menu with choices for everyone. Outstanding fast and friendly service, even though they were packed with both locals and conventioneers. Yes the prime rib was outstanding, but had a chicken dish the second night that was great. And the old school escargot was so good that I had it both nights! Highly recommend The Prime Rib if you want a very good meal in Gillette!
I got exactly what I expected
service was adequate and the environment for my business lunch was adequate.
We were lucky to be eated on a busy Saturday night, because they did not have our Open Table reservation in their system, even though we had email confirmation of it. Great steak!
The roast beef was good but the chicken dishs not.
The roast beef was good but the chicken Capri was watery and not seasoned well. My two guests both had the chicken capri and weren't happy with it.
Great service and a great, nice place to ...
Great service and a great, nice place to have relax and have a nice meal.
a night of bad service
Waitress was very rude. Took an hour to get soup and salads and then she totally forgot one of the guests soups at our table. It took her 15 minutes to bring it. We received our food after 2 hours and my sandwich only had half a burger oN it and it had no mushrooms or onions as ordered. When I told waitress all she said was "ok". I hope to never have her as a waitress again.
Revisiting after 8 yrs
We were disappointed to say the least. They have added on since the last time we stopped. It has cheapened the place. Almost like a nice truck stop. Food was decent. Later in evening but not closing time. Waitress was preoccupied. Bottles of wine on the menu for hundreds of dollars but served butter in a plastic cup. Didn't even offer us dessert. We will not come back.
Walking in the atmosphere was wonderful. We were greeted very quickly and seated right away. The menue was impressive, maybe even a a few to many options, but we went with the chicken fried steak. It was cooked very well, the sides were all wonderful. Our server was friendly, but seemed over whelmed and maybe unsure of the menu items. He could have been a recent hire. Over all a great experience.
Nice Higher End Restaurant
Found this place on trip advisor, and the good reviews were accurate. Nice higher end restaurant. Would definitely go back if in the area again. We were just passing through Gillette and staying overnight. Definitely one of our best meals on our trip. They have a MASSIVE wine list that includes reasonably priced wine, to their reserve list that goes into the stratosphere.
Not a Favorite
We had made reservations and were seated immediately upon arriving. The waitress pounced on us before we even opened the menu. This place has an extensive and some very expensive wines ($100-$500-$1000) so we wanted to look it over before choosing beverage. She came back in about 3 minutes and gain we told her we weren't ready. Even though they have expensive wine, they serve choice beef. My prime rib was done perfectly but a little chewy. My husband ordered his au poivre and she didn't even know what that was even though it was a choice on the menu. When our salads came, they had chex cereal on top instead of croutons. Really? Would not go there again.
Perfect for a special occasion
The table, service, and food were absolutely perfect for us to show true Western Hospitality to a special friend from South Carolina. We had blackened Prime Rib and Ribeye dinners all around. Amy C., our server, was very aware of our desire to have a quiet, fun meal with a friend. She kept her distance, was never intrusive, and yet was there instantly for drink refills, etc. I would suggest that you serve more shrimp with your shrimp cocktail because four is just not enough.
Our server, JoAnn, was outstanding and we loved her sense of humor. The prime rib was out of this world and the wine list is pages and pages in length with unusual wines. We had a fabulous romantic dinner!
First waitress must have thought we were ...
First waitress must have thought we were not going be good tippers. She pawned is off to another waiter who was from South America. So glad she did, he was fantastic. Ordered drinks, appetizers, steaks, and dessert. We also left a big fat tip. Great food, the only bad taste in our mouth was the first waitress who chose not to keep us as her customers
It was ok
If you are looking for a special dinner, pass on Prime Rib. The food is not great. Service was fine, but we were disappointed in most of the meal. The steaks weren't good enough to justify the price.
If you like salads with rice chex and calamari that has square tentacles (yes, they were square. Perhaps imitation seafood?) this is your place. I had a chicken oscar that featured dry chicken, canned crab meat, and, get this, some white gravy that definitely wasn't bernaise. My wife had walleye that was totally tasteless. Both meals were Inedible. The wine list features spectacular wines at outrageous mark ups. Great wines with this food? It brings into question whether those wines are as advertised as they would be a complete waste of money given the quality of the cuisine. Try McDonalds for a decent meal and save your money.
ONE OF THE BEST STEAKS EVER
Seriously good beef. Both ribeye and filet were mouth watering and tasty. Great wine list.
For the price and taste of food here, I say you are getting a fair deal. Service was slow for us, I thought could have been better for a place like his.
Food needs help
At first I was not happy being seated by the door right in front of the kitchen. It was also very warm they need to use the air conditioning. I also expected the food to be better for 20 plus a plate. I could of had the same quality at a Perkins.
Always a good time
The pizza doesn't disappoint. The service is stellar. Great wine selection
Our first choice.
Great food and wine list, go casual or formal, go single, couples, or groups. Best restaurant in Gillette, Wy., we've been going there for over 10 yrs..
Lives up to its name
The prime rib is hands down the best prime rib I've had anywhere.
I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious. The service was good. I felt like I was out of a small town and in one of the big city restaurants I use to frequent. This is a great place for families and friends to dine.
I have always had an amazing meal at the restaurant, and this time 2 out of the 3 prime rib was very fatty and we ended up with a small amount of meat and a plate full of fat.
Always exceeds expectations!
We know we will always get good, quality food at the Prime Rib, and the service is always great! Never have any doubts about recommending to out of town friends, if they don't already know about it.
Overall I absolutely enjoyed the atmosphere and quality of food. Although, I've had faster faster service, it wasn't the worst. Great place, great food! Highly recommendable.
The service and food was excellent! Friendly, professional waitress who took care of everything; overall an excellent dining experience.
A "Must DO" when in Gillette
The Prime Rib is a local treasure featuring great food and beverages at very reasonable prices. Their margaritas are some of the best we've ever had. Service is prompt and professional. The Seniors (over 65) menu is a real bargain. We've tried a lot of entrees and have never been disappointed.
great steak house
Good experience, service started out great then as the waiter got busier we got ignored. Were given check before asking us about desserts. I would return for the food.
Prime Rib offers good food with good service, our waitress was very nice and helpful. I would recommend the Prime Rib to anyone for any occasion.
Great food. - big empty room, lots of tables, set only other couple right next to us. - had to wait for check !!
