Still the classiest spot to dine in Baltimore. Food and especially the steak is outstanding and the wait staff are a throw back to the days when waiting was a profession and they still do it so well. Also, love the live piano player in the background....well done!

Was ignored for quite sometime before being greeted by a kind man who ultimately became my server. Food was subpar. I had oysters, lamb and broccoli. Nothing to rave about, comparable to diner food. Sidecar was great though.

My husband loves steak, he ordered the ribeye steak and said it's one of the best he's ever had. All of our food was delicious, service was attentive but not overbearing. It's not cheap, but very nice for a special occasion.

The staff was wonderful; from changing the reservation number last minute to accommodating an adjustment on an entree temp. Lovely celebration of my 84 year old mother's birthday. She hadn't been here since before my dad passed 4 years ago. Ms Margaret thanks everyone!!

The food was great as usual. The portions of food is always ample enough for sharing. The service is Great from the Valet, to the Matre'd, the the Servers. The live Jazz is a Favorite of our dining experience. The Prime Rib is one of our Top Five places to dine for Great Food, Great Service, and Great Ambiance!

Everything we ordered from the Buzz salad to the Prime Rib and crab cakes was delicious. Even the cocktail and tartar sauces were awesome and homemade. As a Baltimore native, I typically eat my cakes without sauce, but I had to make an exception. The shoestring fries were like McDonald’s (in a delicious, salty-crispy way). Our waiter was an expert, clearly in his element and very personable. The live piano and bass set a lovely ambiance. Just walking through the door, you feel you are in for a treat and the Prime Rib never disappoints from beginning to end of the experience.

Well, we were privileged to have our dining experience prior to the mandatory shutdown. All aspects, from our cocktail to dessert were quintessential. This dining establishment continues to be most worthy of the five stars.

Old style ambience and service and delicious food. Tried the Hearts of Palm with deviled eggs and they were delish. Highly recommend the rack of lamb and of course the Prime Rib!

The Prime Rib is my husband's favorite restaurant! Fabulous, delicious, rich, wonderful food...Full Cut Roast Prime Rib, fresh horseradish, Greenberg Potato Skins, Buzz's and Caesar Salad, Blackened Rockfish, Ribeyes, and Crabcakes, Au Gratin Potatoes, Grilled Asparagus and Grilled Artichoke Hearts, Creamed Spinach...Yum! Take your Lipitor and definitely go indulge. The ambience, the professional service, live piano music, great cocktails and did I mention the wonderful food? Everything is lovely and you will not be disappointed.

First bad meal I’ve had there in 45 years. My friend wanted to try my prime rib so I asked the waiter to bring her an extra plate so I could give her a piece of mine. Instead he cut mine in half (sideways) and I ended up with a skinny piece of red meat with no bone

Great old school white table cloth steakhouse. The meal was excellent form the moment we walked in the door. Our waiter was attentive without being overbearing. Had Chesapeake bay oysters for an appetizer. They were delicious. Good size. Slightly briney. I enjoyed everyone of them. The only blemish on the meal was the Caesar salad. It wasn't bad just not up to par with the rest of the meal. The dressing lacked a bit of flavor and the croutons, while tasty, where too big and not easily broken up. The bone in ribeye was excellent. And that is why you go to the Prime Rib. Excellent flavor. great crust on the out side. The drinks were top notch too. All this in an atmosphere that says this is a classy place.
