    If you've had your share of Florida's wonderful black grouper and you're ready for beef, I strongly recommend Prime Steakhouse. Appetizers were wonderful and the filet and strip that we ordered were cooked like a NYC steakhouse, medium rare as ordered. We'll be back!

    we have eaten here many times. the service is excellent. the food is excellent. we return every time we are in key west. if you want the best steak and the best service come here. there are not many tables so make reservations. also this restaurant, although on the waterfront, does not really have a view. it is located above dante's bar and pretty much up by itself.

    My husband & I really enjoyed our dinner @ Prime Steakhouse. So much so, that we are dining there again tonight. We have been in Key West for a week & I must say our meal @ Prime was the best. My husband ordered the Crab Cake app & the 16oz "bone-in" Filet (on special.) i ordered the Escargot app & the 10oz Filet w/Crumbled Blue Cheese. All the seaks are served with an amazing whole roasted garlic, to be squeezed onto the steak, AMAZING! We also ordered the Asparagus & Truffled Mac & Smoked Gouda (mac-n-cheese.) Our only complaint, the asparagus was approx 1 min undercooked. Just a little too crunchy. Diners will not be disappointed, food was fantastic, large portions. We actually ordered too much.

    Our experience started off a little rocky. It was my boyfriends birthday&I had made a reservation prior to opening&made the reservation for 8:30. We got there on time in fact it was exactly 8:28pm. They tell me it's going to be at least 20 mins before my table was ready but most outside seating was open so we took that, even though it was 98 degrees outside and we were in dress clothes. Not a huge deal but still what's the point of a reservation&making a note you want an inside table. Also it took our server 25 mins to get our drink order&also went through the specials so fast 3 of us had no clue what was said. Now after this, out food was amazing&the GM checked on us&was very sweet. Just the beginning was ruff&hope they work on it.

    They had an appetizers special which all but one in our group took advantage of. The one who didn't do appetizer had a bone in filet. He ordered it medium and it was medium rare at best. Told the manager and she really wasn't interested. The server was also told so that she could inform the chef. We were not asking for a discount. We just wanted the chef and manager to know the steak was not cooked properly. The person who ordered the steak in our group did not want to wait for it to be cooked further as the rest of us ate so he did not send it back. Appetizers were good and the steaks I have had in the past here have been good. Everyone has an off night!

    I love Key West and the food. After a long week of eating fried fish and conch fritters, it was so nice to have a nice place for a good steak and different options for seafood other then just fried. I would highly recommend eating here if you want want to dress up and have beautiful dinner and not being around smokers in flip flops.

    Be prepared to open your wallet wide! My husband and I started with oysters, which were good but nothing out of this world. Which is a bit disappointing when you're in the Keys. Then we each had the filet mignon at $42 per person. That includes no sides, just the steak. The sides are ala carte, and big enough to share. The filet was excellent, melts in your mouth and very filling for 10oz. They have a very extensive wine list and a decent small bar area. The location and interior is a bit off putting. It's above some stores on the second level near several empty store fronts. The interior is dark and dated and whether you sit inside or out you have no view to speak of. It's really catered towards groups of 5+. and that'll be quite the bill!

    I truly enjoy steakhouses, and visit them all over the country. Prime consistently has product as good or better than any of them. Granted, you do not get the same ambience as a big city steakhouse; however, the food, always consistent and excellent truly makes up for that

    This was our second time to Prime Steak House and it was perfect. I brought my girl friend here for a romantic night and everything was amazing from the incredibly delicious steak all cooked to perfection, the Waite staff was more than courteous and ready to make your dinner as special as possible. The restaurant was clean and have an vintage feel and look which now a days is hard to find. This is truly a gem and we will be returning fairly soon!!

    If you're looking for a great steak in Key West, this is the place ... but I wouldn't go for anything else. The menu options are basic for steak folks. That's not a bad thing - do what you do and do it REALLY WELL! The steak I had, with roasted garlic was perfectly prepared and superbly flavored ... but not the best cut I've ever eaten. There are other places in Key West with a more robust menu, but this place is hands-down the best for steak.

    Prime Steakhouse lives up to it's name. Our meal was outstanding. Our steaks we're cooked to perfection. The a la carte sides are large enough to share. The service and ambience were just right for this upscale eatery. It was husband's birthday and he was treated to a slice of homemade caramel cheesecake! Would definitely return when visiting Key West.

    Prime Steakhouse once again presented a wonderful meal. We have eaten here many times and you can count on great service and excellent food every time. The steaks are perfect. The sides and salads are wonderful. If you are looking for a huge menu, don't come here but each and every item is cooked to perfection especially the steaks. We also enjoy eating at the bar sometimes for a more casual dine. The service is very attentive . We love to split the 10 oz filet and get salads and two sides including the wonderful truffle mac and cheese. Don't miss it.

    escargot & lump crab vichyssoise soup - absolutely wonderful. steaks - excellent quality meat -- cooked to the correct "doneness", but served ice cold. we ordered 'rare', but it wasn't just cool in the center -- it was COLD all the way thru, the fat was rock-hard. french fries served lukewarm, VERY greasy, soggy. our hostess very nicely insisted on replacing them, but unfortunately didn't receive the 2nd batch until we were pretty much finished with dinner, and they were still very greasy and fairly soggy. key lime pie -- worst we've ever had way too expensive wonderful, really excellent service by all - lovely atmosphere -
