We had a lovely dinner for our 37th anniversary. Back to where we had dinner when we got engaged.38 years ago.
Always enjoy the potato skins and all of the crab dishes.
The homemade choc ice cream was outstanding.
All in all a wonderful evening

I'll miss the downtown location - I hope they take some of the accoutrements with them when they relocate.

I’ve eaten at ateakhouses all over the country and The Prime Rib is still my favorite. The best strip steak, clams casino, Potatoes au gratin and broccolini. Perfect decor and service. The shaved horseradish w/ the steak isn’t done anywhere else to my knowledge and the new addition of the roasted garlic is also a nice touch.

My husband and I were greatly pleased that we decided to celebrate our wedding anniversary at The Prime Rib. Our server, Nathan, was amazing, the food's presentation was beautiful, and the taste was delicious! We will definitely come back again in the future!

Classic steakhouse with some exceptional dishes. The prime rib is excellent. The Escargots can not be matched anywhere. The cold crab cocktail is superb. All sides are very well prepared and tasty. Some of their smaller streaks (i.e. petite filet mignon) don’t match the quality of other main course selections.

SO looked forward to eating inside at one of our favorite restaurants. Couldn't give 5 stars across the board because some things were off. It was noisier then usual, place was pretty full. Our waiter that we know and love seemed hurried and a little forgetful. Food wasn't quite as perfect as usual. French fries cold, ground sirloin dry, could have used a gravy perhaps. Not cooked as specified. Prime rib too full of fat and difficult to cut. It too needed an au jus or something. Enjoyed the complimentary dessert for birthday. Irish coffee also just warm with the whipped cream falling off the sides.

It's been a favorite for too many years and this might have been an off night.

Classic old world steakhouse. Live piano. Great service. I had the smoked salmon appetizer and, of course, the prime rib. I’ve been to all 3 locations. They never disappoint.

Our server was terrible . We have been going there to eat for 20 years and never have we had a server than was sloppy, never asked us if we wanted a cocktail after we sat down. He was not attentive at all. This is not something we have experienced in the last 20 years. We had a bottle of Chardonnay with dinner. In the last pour my husband had what looked like a piece of stick in it. When we brought it to the severs attention his response was it’s probably sugar . He took my husbands full glass of wine away and never bought us any more. His response was that he checked and the “stick” was sugar and he was right. Since when did the Prime Rib have such rude servers. He did make it a point to tell us that he checked and he was right, it was sugar. Our dinner guests even commented that he must have come from a low level chain restaurant and probably struggled there.
