Diner Reviews
  • "We've only been there for the special Monday night hamburgers , and each time they have been consistently great. They require you to buy a drink (soda is $3) in order to get the special, but let me substitute a salad or dessert instead. Even though every table is full with lines of people waiting (which is why reservations are a must!), the service has been timely and the food really good. The noise level is high, but we never felt we had to shout or compete with the surrounding tables."

  • "This is a great restaurant. This last time was my second time going. while I cannot speak about the whole menu, the $5 burgers are wonderful. Of course the bull does not simply come out to $5. With the deal you are required to purchase a drink and there are additional add ons for your burger such as mushrooms bacon and so on at $1 each. All in all it is a great deal. Just make sure to make a reservation because the place is always packed!!!"

  • "We have been to this restaurant at least 10 times. We often go for the $5 hamburger special. For several weeks we had a 7:15 reservation only to find them sold out of the shrimp which were always superb. This week we went early to be sure to get shrimp. But what a disappointment. They were large as always but slimy and mushy not firm and sweet. I even had to spit mine out because it tasted 'off'. Not sure if we'll ever return this left - quite literally - a bad taste in our mouth."

  • "Prime131 Grill is a favorite with my daughter, so we took her there for her birthday. I was a bit surprised that the hostess led us (two adolescents, one elderly gentleman not particularly steady on his feet and myself) to a "step up" booth next to the bar--she was quick to take us into the dining room when I asked, but it seemed odd that I should have to ask. Otherwise, service was excellent and food very fine! We will return."

  • "We enjoy the Prime Grill and like going there but since they have discontinued offering both White Zinfandel or a Riesling by the glass we will no longer continue to go. My wife likes a sweet wine and discontinuing these offering has prompted this decision."

  • "Their Monday night special of $5 hamburger and $1 shrimp and/or oyster is terrific. Shrimp are fabulous. But of the last 4 visits they ran out of shrimp 3 times by 7:15.This is not acceptable. Manager said he loses money on shrimp. So why serve them at all? Have to buy a drink at $3.50 for iced tea, so making money somewhere. Most buy liquor, so making BIG bucks there. They either need to rethink this special or buy more shrimp and be prepared."

  • "Had a lovely dinner with friends. We started with the bar snacks----don't miss the crispy Brussel Sprouts. Dinners were well prepared. Our server was a well mannered young man. If you enjoy lots of dinner conversation, this place is for you. Although the bar was active, we found the restaurant to be pleasantly calm enough to enjoy our conversation."

  • "I have been to Prime Bar many times since it first opened and this last time was the best. All of the food was excellent - from the scallops to the crispy fried calamari. I ordered the Santorini (?) chicken over linquini and it was tender and flavorful. I have been disappointed in past meals but this was great - in fact MUCH better that our last meal at The Coach Grill and for a much better price. We will be back again soon."

  • "Met my brother there for dinner. It was Monday and there is quite a crowd for the special Monday $5 Burger Night. I got the burger and my brother got the petite filet. Both were very good. Our waitress kept trying to sell us on other items, not the special burger. Seemed a bit pushy. Overall food was good and i will go back."

  • "I've been to Prime 20 or so times in the past 2 years... I have never had a bad meal or a bad experience. The food is always good and the service is too. You can get a burger, sandwich or a steak! LOVE the chicken quesadillas!! Better than any local mexican restaurant around! YUM!"

  • "This was the second time we went to the Prime 131 Grill for their Monday $5 hamburger night. Both times, the hamburgers were great and the French fries crispy and hot. The wait staff was just what one would want: attentive, but not TOO attentive, pleasant and helpful. The first time, we didn't have reservations and had to wait 45 minutes to get a table, because the restaurant is packed on Monday nights. This time, we wised up and got reservations, and didn't wait at all. Considering that every table was taken, the noise level was acceptable. No shouting necessary. "

  • "Prime 131 Grill is a great restaurant that serves good quality food with a more casual feel than some of the higher end places. The steaks are seasoned well, cooked to perfection, and served with two delicious sides. I recommend the Ribera. There is a $5 burger night that is always jam packed. The price point is actually pretty reasonable for Wayland and the service is always attentive. "

  • "Had a very nice evening at Prime131. Menu has changed and the roasted brussel sprout appetizer is wonderful! It was a VERY quiet Friday night and we sat at a table in the bar area and had a very leisurely, relaxing meal. Waitress was very good-did not rush us."

  • "We've been to this restaurant several times, and really enjoy it. But it sure would be nice if there were some vegetarian options on the menu. Yes, "grill" implies meat, but it isn't that hard to have a veggie burger and veggie pasta on the menu. Without these additions we choose another restaurant when the vegetarian members of our family are around."

  • "We frequently go to the Prime 131 Grill for a quick, week-night dinner, or a weekend night out with friends. Their food is always tasty, with a good menu selection and interesting specials. They recently changed their menu, but the new selections look great and our meal was very good. Service has always been excellent. We typically go early evening because the restaurant and bar tend to get crowded later at night, but they do take reservations, which is a big plus for us. "

  • "I come here often for the Monday night $5 burger which is a great success with crowds each week...so I always make an Open Table reservation. This time the person checking me in forgot to check me off so heard from Open Table afterwards that I hadn't honored my reservation. That got straightened out but was annoying since I get so much email through work etc and didn't need an extra one. However, I love Monday nights at Prime and go there often other times as well. Especially love the bartenders and friendly atmosphere. Love the oysters they sometimes have on Mondays as well."

  • "They brought back the seared tuna steak ! It is perfectly seared with a subtle peanut sauce. Complemented with a fine Merlot makes for a fabulous dinner. "

  • "First time here. It was mothers day we had a party of 6 with a high chair. and we were put into a booth . It was crowded. The waiter had a good suggestion to use a booster seat and put a chair at the end of the table for my son. That helped but it was still snug or the other three guest on the other side. The service was excellent, The food was good the bacon wrap scallop app was only 4 scallops we were 7 we did order two other apps they were good. Everyone had something different from the menu and all said they enjoyed their meals. I thought the time from ordering to getting out food was a bit long . all in all it was very good service and the food was good. will have to try it with smaller party and on a non holiday. "

  • "Not on the way to much of anything, but this is a great place to start the weekend or just end the day. Food is very good (sometimes pricey) and the bartenders (especially Todd & Joe) are attentive to your thirsty pallet."

  • "Food and service was excellent. Prices were reasonable with a good variety of choices. Staff was very attentive, friendly and open to special requests. Chilean Sea bass and Lobster pie/Filet Mignon dishes were highlights, as was the Roasted Beet/Basil/Goat Cheese salad. The Bacon-wrapped scallops with Maple-Chambord dipping sauce were to die for! "

  • "there are so few decent restaurants out here in the burbs we go here because it meets the barely decent test. Service this time was very slow though and my steak was dry. Has never, ever been outstanding. But it's tolerable when I simply don't have time to cook. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "While the steak we ordered was fabulous, the portion of the side items was way too small. Also we had the brussel sprouts which were five dollars. They came in a cool little container but at the bottom was a rather large balled up piece of paper which we thought was really a tacky way of not filling the whole container. The service was excellent and we loved the Mississippi Pie. Also I have made tons of reservations through open table and have never not been given my 100 points. So in conclusion this wouldn't be my first choice of dining establishments in the future."

  • "Knew nothing about this restaurant - just tried it on a whim for dinner. For the physical layout (booths with high sides) the noise level was higher than you would expect. The meal was very good - food prepared as we liked, taste and presentation very nice. Prices were on the high-side of moderate, but portions were adequate-to-generous. Our server was polite, enthusiastic, and attentive - but ineffective in some ways (forgot items we asked for, brought the wrong salad, appeared at the table too many times at first, disappeared for a long stretch when we wanted more wine), and then cleared one place setting while the other person was still eating and hurried the check. Overall we felt a little rushed and pestered. We would try it again."
