    Each course was delicious. The price was much higher than comparable selections at Morton's, Ruth's Chris, and Capital Grille. The service was poor especially for a fine dining establishment. During our meal, the staff forgot to bring bread to our table, neglected to fill our water glasses, forgot one side dish, and rarely checked on us despite the restaurant being nearly empty. After this experience, I will stay with Morton's and Ruth's Chris.

    Nice restaurant. The ambiance was elegant, although there should be a dress code implemented. The food was okay, nothing too spectacular especially for the price. The steak was cooked perfectly, but I have had steak similar to it at restaurants such as Texas Roadhouse, which happens to be a fraction of the cost of what my 18oz. prime ribeye was here and have similar taste. Our server was fairly quick, but was strictly business, therefore nothing to rave about there either. It was a nice night out, but by no means was it an unforgettable experience.

    I had dine at Prime Rib at both DC and Baltimore locations before and great experiences, when I saw this location offer special menu for girls night out, I was so exciting, but the service wasn't great, next table came after us was served first; the food was so.so; the place mates even had bread crumb on it, we were very dis pointed. It's great idea to offer special menu for girl night our, but if the service and food are different from main dining room, then I don't believe people will return. I guess because the restaurant is inside the casino and you get the traffic anyway, that's why you don't need to make customers happy?

    It took almost 1 hour to get my food. The place was not even packed. Also the server who was nice said that the manger would come talk to us. NO manager ever came. Very unprofessional and the service was horrible. Server explained that he put our order in three times and was not sure why our food did not come. Saw two other couples come on after us and got their food before we did. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

    Was expecting excellent service for such an upscale restaurant and expensive menu. However, it was anything but that. Our server seemed to forget about us and showed up every 20 minutes or so. And, there was at least 30 minutes between our salads and entrees, which finally showed up without our side items that then followed after another 10 minutes. And, we never once saw a manager or anyone on the floor overseeing customers.

    The restaurant is beautiful - black and gold decor. In a restaurant called "The Prime Rib" you expect the star of the meal to be the meat. The prime rib was ordered medium and was more well done than medium. It looked like it had been reheated. The Porterhouse steak was overly salty as was the Calamari appetizer. The sweet potato side dish was overly spiced with cinnamon. I don't mind paying high prices for excellent food. This was high prices with sub-standard food. Not at all worth the price. Disappointing.

    The wait staff was attentive and informative, important first impression. The recommended wine paired well with our dinners. Wonderful appetizer selections, I would have liked to have a sampler platter of these as a dinner choice! The entire table enjoyed the cheese and meat selections on the charcuterie tray (special praise for the truffle cheese). As much as we enjoyed the appetizers and both the seafood and beef dinners, we wouldn't recommend the deserts. Bread pudding was tasty, but icing on cake had taste and consistency of too much of vegetable shortening.

    Took my wife for her love of Prime Rib. For a restaurant of this pedigree, it is not living up to its name or prices. I ordered a crab cake appetizer which, for all of its abundance of crab, was served dry and barely warm. It was clear it had been sitting for a while. We both ordered the prime rib and it did not dissapoint. The asparagus were exceptional. We both ordered the creme brûlée as it is a favorite dessert choice of ours. For a meal of this caliber it was a huge disappointment. For a Friday night dinner we should not expect these types of preparation blunders. Still, we are willing to give it another try and hope for it to live up to the names reputation.

    we had an excellent meal at this location - it was all we expected. However, our service was particularly poor. We would go for great lengths of time without seeing our server. I expect better at the Prime Rib. I finally asked a passing employee (when I finally got someone to look at me) to please get our waiter. Shouldn't be that way in a restaurant of this caliber.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    The was food was 'good', but not impressive given the cost of the meals. The steaks were good, but costly and not better than what I have had for less money at places like Shula's, Ruth's Chris, Flemings, etc. One party member had fish. The fish was dry and flavorless. Atmosphere was noisy and at least two plates were dropped/broken while we were there and one waiter fell down flat on his face right in front of us because of water on the floor. Two people hovered over us at all times. They were apparently bathroom monitors. The Prime Rib might be really good in downtown Baltimore, but it's just average at the Maryland Live Casino location. If you are looking to put down $100.00 a person for a meal, I'd choose a different venue.

    The food here is incredible. The service was impeccable. My boyfriend and I both ordered the surf and turf with lobster and steak. The steak was cooked to perfection. Before the main course, we both had caesar salads and he order oysters which were served hot. Bread was delivered to us by hand as well. It was a delicious meal that ended with creme brulee and coffee. This was my second time here and I was very impressed. The food is great.

    Had a good time. Make sure to ask how much the specials are. We're very surprised to get the bill to see my entre is triple the price of most the other entre selections. (Tomahawk ribeye is $145). Besides that good time. Would not have ordered it if the waitress let me know lol. She was great and the food was good.

    If you are called the Prime Rib you should have the very best tasting Prime Rib. The prime rib was bland, tough and fatty. The thing they did well was for celebrating my sons birthday they went out of their way to make a special, complimentary dessert specifically for his tastes.

    The Prime Rib is a great series of restaurants and this one did not disappoint. The food, as expected, was fantastic. The steaks were cooked as ordered and very flavorful. The biggest surprise was we were seated right next to the casino with a window and no noise came through. The casino noise was blocked and the restaurant atmosphere prevailed. Out waiter was very attentive all night.

    The Prime Rib has been one of my all time favorite restaurants in Maryland (In this country as we travel widely) since my youth when we traveled to the Baltimore location to eat there. We have eaten at this LIVE location three times now and have enjoyed the food immensely each time. The wait service has been excellent each time as well. My only problem is with the front end staff and the management. Fine dining is all about customer service, and regardless of the Casino clientele dressed in flipflops and shorts sitting next to us, whilst we were in jackets and business casual attire, the substandard service was all at the front of the restaurant. The hostess staff had us wait over and hour when we had a reservation? Management hid

    The cost of dinner at the Prime Rib is substantial and due to that I expected excellent service, more choices and the food to be the correct temperature and presentation superb-- to which none of this was!!!!!!! My Lobster Bisque was moderately warm and I asked for lemon for it and by the time I had to request it twice the soup was almost too cold to eat. My friend selected Imperial Crab and had to send it back the first time due to no Imperial sauce on it and not browned/broiled. She sent it back a second time to get browned more because it was very lightly browned. We both got fries with meal and they were barely warm. The waitress seemed to have little patience for some of our inquires and requests. I expected a lot more!!!!

    My wife and I had a reservation for 6:30. We arrived at that time and we're greeted by the hostess. We decided to have a drink at the bar. The bartender was extremely friendly and informative. At my request we were seated at 7:30. My wife ordered the lobster bisque and I had the french onion soup appetizers. Both were excellent. For our entree my wife ordered the mussels. They were very good, a little bit spicy, but good. I had the stuffed flounder. It was excellent, just a little dry. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and made good suggestions. We were not rushed and had plenty of time to talk, enjoy our drinks and eat dinner. We will be back.

    I took my wife here for dinner, normally we really enjoy 'The Prime Rib' this was our first attempt to go to the one at MD Live. Except for the french onion soup our food was very mediocre. It tasted bland of seasoning and on some parts was only a little warm. For not being busy our waitress kept disappearing and was hard to find at the end when we wanted our bill.

The ribeye was pretty good... after I sent it back for more cooking. Just don't bother going here unless invited with someone else picking up the tab.
