We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. It was a special evening.

Mother's Day Lunch
Our families experience at Southern Prime was wonderful. The food was attractive and delicious. We had a 10 month baby with us and the staff was attentive and friendly with her.

Wonderful experience. Delicious
Wonderful experience. Delicious food. Located in quaint downtown great for walking around before or after dinner. Service was adequate. Menu is a bit pricey but worth it for a special event. Celebrated a birthday they had confetti on the table, special dessert, and took a picture of our group.

Put it on the Southern Pines list
Two couples on a golf vacation who love food and wine. Had a very enjoyable dinner
at Southern Prime. Very good service. Good drinks and wine list. Would definitely include on
your list of Southern Pines neighborhood restaurants on the Broad Street strip.

Food is very good - not just
Food is very good - not just the steaks but everything; only note of caution would be to ask about prices of specials - the are sometimes much higher than other entrees.

have eaten here a handful of times, food has always been excellent. latest visit for birthday dinner had a new (inexperienced) waiter....tried hard but just not on it, forgot butter for lobster, confused on menu side options with dinners, expect more from this caliber of restaurant. Previous servers had been outstanding, so not going to keep us from returning.
5/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good ambience with attentive and pleasant service. Steaks excellent and a good selection of meals. Wine a bit expensive for the table wines.
5/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
It just kept getting better!
From the moment that we were greeted by our friendly, witty and oh-so-accommodating waiter through the end of our evening, our group of six had a most enjoyable evening! Salads were fresh, Steaks were cooked to perfection...the filet melted in your mouth do not miss the opportunity to share an order of butter sauteed mushrooms to share...they were the hit of the meal! The lobster tail was huge, flavorful and perfectly cooked. Scallops, Bone in Strip, Pork chop and Scallops were all delectable! Wine lockers available too! Perfect dining experience....a new favorite when visiting Pinehurst!!!

1st anniversary dinner
Made reservations thru open table for our first anniversary at southern prime. I had left a note in the special request section about theanniversary. We arrived and were immediately seated at a decorated table in a private area. The food was excellent but was the most expensive dinner we have ever had. I was well aware of the menu and pricing in advance. The hostess took our picture and printed it in a card for our anniversary. They also included a free dessert.

We have been to Southern Prime
We have been to Southern Prime many times, on this occasion to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant included a few nice touches: little heart confetti on the tablecloth, a commemorative photo, and a complimentary dessert ( yummy lava cake!). Our server, Laura, was excellent. A very nice evening!
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
All was perfect!! The food, especially the Prime Rib was one of the best I have ever had

Southern Pines must do!
Every visit to Southern Pines/Pinehurst we make a point to go to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. Wine list is outrageously large! You will enjoy!
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another great experience.
Have never been disappointed when dining here. Ate here with my dad for Father's Day. Once more the food, dish presentation and service were excellent. I love the atmosphere of this restaurant.... even though you are in the small town of Southern Pines, when you step through these doors, you have the feeling of being in a restaurant that would be located in a large city, such as Houston, Chicago, Seattle, New York etc.... The setting is sophisticated and you find yourself wanting to enjoy a long leisurely meal in this atmosphere. The customer service was excellent once again. Our server Leslie (2nd time) was very professional and attentive. All of the staff make you feel welcome and do their jobs well. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Outstanding service and food......
I made a reservation for 7:45pm. My girlfriend and I arrived at 7:30, we were seated immediately. The waiter came out as soon as we sat down and got out drink order and told us the specials. I have to say the service is 1st class. The food is some of the best I have ever eaten. I will defiantly go back to this place.......
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect Place for Dining
With reservations previously made at Southern Prime for a group of 15, we were immediately seated upon our arrival. The wait staff was awesome and entertaining. We had a young man who did not miss a beat, made recommendations based on our questions, and served us well. The food was delicious and everyone in our group was pleased with their meals. Afterwards, our waiter took a group picture and had us laughing for the photos, which makes for great memories. All of us would recommend Southern Prime to anyone living or visiting the Sandhills area. An excellent choice for great dining!

Great Southern Pines Steak
Celebrated a birthday with great steaks and service.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great job once again!
We celebrated our 15 anniversary at Southern Prime. It was an outstanding evening in every way. The food, service, ambiance, everthing could not have been any better. She had salmon and I had scallops and we would highly recommend both dishes.
7/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Good but pricy
If you look at menu online, you know the food is pricy before you go, but you expect it to be GREAT. When you arrive, you find an elegant dining room, excellant service and a wonderful wine selection (VERY pricy). When appetizers arrive they seem a bit over designed or plated for the amount served, but again very tasty. Entree's were good but not the GREAT I had expected. I've eaten at Beefeaters and Outback, had a comparable meal as far as taste and presentation, but for much less. For special occassions this place is excellant because of the atmosphere it provides along with a good meal and great service. So, in your opinion, if atmosphere counts for as much as good tasting food, then Southern Prime Steakhouse would be a good selection.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The ambience was wonderful. The food was excellent. My filet was prepared to,perfection. Lovely setting. A great place for a special event or a great evening.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
The pink meats were a treat!
We arrived at 7:30 for our 7:45 reservation we were greeted warmly and promptly escorted to our table that was already set for the two of us. The room we were seated in was amazing! Glass wine cases from floor to ceiling, beautifully lit and neatly organized. Our server was pleasant and offered creative variations of the drinks offered through the bar. The calamari appetizer was delicious, the aoli being the star feature of the dish. The Prime Rib I ordered medium rare was cooked perfectly and my wifes seared Ahi Tuna was done just right. The Gouda Mac N' Cheese was absolutely to die for and should not be overlooked! Throughout the meal our plates were promptly cleared, and our server was attentive to our needs. SP is a great restaurant!

I booked a reservation for my parents 20th wedding annivarsary being I knew they would just go to some local steakhouse chain if I didn't and my mother called me right after leaving Southern Prime to tell me what a great time they had! She said she has never been anywhere where a place made her annivarsary feel so special. The food was great and she said the staff was over the top nice and caring. So happy I made them reservations at Southern Prime for their special day!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I decided to try Southern Prime after a friend told us about it. All I have to say is that our experience was outstanding. The food was outstanding, the staff treated us great and the setting was pleasant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anybody who is looking to get a delicious meal for a special occasion or just a quiet night out with the one you love.

Pricey but impecable
A birthday was complete with a perfect steak and cheescake with excellent service. Dinner for 4 was $180
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything was outstanding
We happened to find the Southern Prime when we were down in Pinehurst area over the week of July 4th. We now have brought friends there two different times. Our waitressl, Kelli, is wonderful. I highly recommend this restaurant.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Didn't expect such a high quality steak house in a small town. Comparable to a Ruth Chris not quite a Morton's or Capital Grill.
Great bar and outdoor patio. Our waiter (Austin) was very good, personable and managed the timing of our dinner very well.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steaks were very tender however lacked flavor. Medium well steak was very pink on the inside. Had to send it back but it was then perfect. All other food items were very good. Great dining experience! Staff exceeded our expectations.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife, adult daughter, and I enjoyed a very relaxing dinner celebrating my birthday. We were all very happy with the quality of the food and service. We will definitely dine here again.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My beautiful wife and I have eaten here on multiple occasions. We arrived prior to our reservation, however we were greated with a smile, were promptly seated and met by our server. We ordered a bottle of sparkling water. For dinner we both ordered the 10 oz.
Lobster tail and both of us changed the sides with no issues. I had wasabi mashed and green beans and my wife had creamed musrooms and green beans. We paired diner with a NZ Savignon Blanc. For desert we shared a creme brule. Everything was expertly prepared and delicious! Hat's off to the Chef! We look forward to our next visit.

A Must Stop In The Sandhills
This restaurant has it all. Great food and presentation, a beautiful dining room and a service staff that is well trained and responsive. The Porterhouse Veal Chop is amazing !

Special Occasion - Fantastic Dinner
My wife and I recently dined at Southern Prime for the first time. We selected the restaurant based upon the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend who lives in Southern Pines. We were very impressed with the selection and quality of the food. My wife enjoyed the filet mignon that was very tender and flavorful. I enjoyed the best rib eye that I've been served in years. The wait staff was very professional and the atmosphere was perfect for us to have a special dinner as we celebrated our wedding anniversary. My only recommendation is that I'd like to see a bit larger selection of wine in the $30 - $50 per bottle range. It seemed that most of their offerings were will above that price range. Will definitely visit again.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner Saturday night. The specials were worth the extra price, the wine list was reasonable in price and significant in selection. The service was wonderful as Burt / Bert was attentive and thoughtful. The entire experience was memorable. It was a birthday celebration and I know they offer a chocolate dessert - we opted for the fantastic bread pudding - it was worth the extra price. This is our second visit and we will look forward to the next.

sunday brunch experience
I have been living in the area for a year and have always heard about how wonderful Southern Prime is for dinner. My folks were coming to visit and i wanted to take them somewhere special. I went on the website to look at the menu and was pleasantly surprised to see a sunday brunch was availavle! What a great menu! The food was fresh and excellently prepared. I was thrilled that it wasnt a buffet! We had a relaxing time. Our waiter, Brandon, was accommodating without being overbearing. I will go back again and will tell everyone to gofor sunday brunch. Best of all, great food at affordable prices!
10/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Super steaks. Juicy, cooked to perfection, bursting with flavor, influential to the palette, aged well. Best steak in town. Even wine by the glass was of high quality. Owner was most kind in in ensuring our pleasure. Great wait staff.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Read about it. Nice staff. Pretty expensive. Would recommend for dinner for a few due to price.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
The service, the food, the atmosphere were all terrific. They made our wedding anniversary dinner special - glitter hearts on the table, souvenir photo and complementary dessert with Happy Anniversary design.

Picked it out of the blue and was pleasantly surprised to have such a wonderful meal and equally wonderful service.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was excellent and the menu offered a great variety. The decor was nice and restaurant was clean. The customers were alot older. The waiter was often more concerned with the older/ other guests as we had to refill our wine twice. Overall I would recommend the restaurant.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
My wife and I are making Southern Prime our place to celebrate our anniversaries (45th this year). The staff all new it was our anniversary (shared the fact on Open Table). The table cloth had heart confetti on it, they took a complimentary picture, and served a wonderful, complimentary dessert.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
A friendly, elegant and cozy restaurant which should be shared with co-workers, friends and family! Food was exceptional and wine selection even better!

There are only 2 area restaurants
There are only 2 area restaurants that get 5 starts from me.
On a Saturday night the dining room was filled with people but you could still carry on a conversation.
The food is always cooked properly and to your specifications.
Our service was superb. Great menu suggestions -- attentive but not intrusive. We left the table several times to enjoy the scenery outside the restaurant and the table was always clean when we returned.
We had a lovely family gathering (ages 10 & up) & stayed from 6pm to 9pm.
It is expensive -- 5 entrees, appetizers,drinks dessert and and coffee -- $ 400.00

We went to Southern Prime
We went to Southern Prime Steakhouse for Thanksgiving dinner. What a treat. The dining room was lovely, the service great and the food outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely recommend.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Overall, my family and I very much enjoyed our dining experience. We chose Southern Prime as the venue to host a celebratory dinner and it delivered an atmosphere that was elegant and classy without being ostentatious. The restaurant was not extremely crowded and it was easy to maintain a conversation without raised voices at our table. Our waiter was attentive and professional. The only bobble of the evening was an incorrectly prepared cocktail - that was quickly rectified with no fuss and an apology. The shared plates are not quite as large as the name implies, but the portions for the main course are ample without being excessive. The steaks are very, very good - and they are well prepared, ours were all cooked perfectly.
