    The food was ok. I liked the shrimp bruschetta and french fries, but the shrimp and grits was VERY salty. Also, a little on the pricey side, but I knew that going in. The price of the food should match the quality in my opinion. The waiter was great! Overall an ok experience.

    We are here at least 2 times a week...the food is always fantastic & the wait staff is friendly and does a great job. My only problem so far has been the hostess, one in particular always seems very confused and is never friendly. Not the first person I want greeting my patrons but she is always there.

    With a name like Prime Bar I expected a much better quality of food. The building, service and bar was nice but the food was not worth the trip. Very disappointing. I really hoped for upscale bar foods and this was out of the freezer quality. The flat breads were not good and the tacos were dry and with out flavor. Nice bar - will not go back.

    This was a fun place to start our Girls night out. Our waiter was attentive, friendly, and fun. Management was on site to ensure a good dining experience for all. I was a bit disappointed with the serving size - I ordered a 1/2 wedge salad for dinner (the dinner portion instead of the side salad) and it was quite small; had I ordered the side salad it would have been only 1-2 bites. Shrimp was cooked perfectly, drink selection was ample, and sample offerings allowed me to taste on or two specialty beers before I ordered. I was also surprised at the dining attire of some patrons. The bar is listed as an "upscale pub", however jeans, little leaguers straight from the field, shorts and flip flops were the norm. I felt overdressed!

The food is good, the service is great, and the staff and mangers provide a very welcoming atmosphere. Special events are reasonably priced, more than ample, and are always fun to attend.

    My family and I were celebrating a couple of events and accomplishments and had a rather large party. Prime Bar was able to accommodate our party size and even make adjustments the evening of the event. We were able to bring in cupcakes that the restaurant offered to store in the cooler. The service staff was great considering the size of our party and it was a very enjoyable and memorable evening.

    My family was in town to celebrate a special event and when the reservation was made no one advised that the restaurant would be closed.Even when I called to confirm the reservation noone mentioned that they would not be open. Upon arrival it instantly became stressful, embarrassing and quite frustrating to know that I was not advised of this prior. Thank goodness for Grill Smith and the awesome manager that was nice enough to let us use their private dining room to be able to dine and celebrate my husbands special occasion. Although relieved it was still disappointing to not be where we reserved. There should be some type of notification advising of the closed date/time or a follow up call from the restaurant when they see the reservation.

    Food was OK, noise was loud and very crowded. Tucked inside an open air mall location, parking was very bad for peak time (7:15pm). I might go back if I couldn't find another chain place. Menu items were somewhat unique but very trendy! Chicken Tortilla soup very spicy but was served with a piece of toast, no taco chips? Drink service was slow and brought 1 dessert for for 2 guys, who obviously don't share.

    Very happy with this location. They accommodated our group of 13 without a flaw. Service was excellent, food was outstanding. They even overheard one of the guests sharing how much the loved wings, and offered to do a plate, since it would be coming out on the new menu, and they had the supply in stock! That guest was over the moon with the offer. The wings were yummy! Drinks were kept full and food came to the table in a timely manner.

    We take the family up to Primebar for 5 dollar burger night, and to take advantage of happy hour appetizers and such. As usual, the food was great. We started off with the loaded kettle chips, and surprisingly didn't feel skimped on the bleu cheese, so extra kudos there from this bleu cheese fan. The chips were really overcooked, but I think it added some character to them. My wife had the special burger, which was a buffalo burger, and enjoyed it. I had my usual fried egg burger and all its gouda egg yolky goodness. The kids split a regular sized cheeseburger which is more than enough to fill a 5 and 2 year old. Only complaint is that for as unusually slow as it seemed, we waited a lot longer for our food than usual.

    We go several times a month, and have brought numerous guests, and the food and service are consitantly great. Hapyy Hour, Hamburger Tuesdays, and Beer of the Month, are all excellent buys. Regular pricing is more than fair for the portions and quality of both food and drinks. Ask about their frequent diner plan. For every $200.00 spent at their restaurant you earn $25.00 off of your next check. It accumulates fast, and again, it is a wonderful deal. Can not say enough good about the staff. They are attentive and pleasant, or they do not work there long.

Our concern was the "Prime Bar " was out of the 'Prime Rib" My wife recommended the PB as she had visited once before, it is 23 miles from our house it was my Mom's 89th birthday [ which they new I beleive and they did not recognise it ] Any way my Wife said try the Prime Rib sandwhich well 3 of the the 6 adults ordered it and at 1:30 they were all out. This was disapointing but I will go back just to try it. JB
