    We could not have been treated better! Vintage Prime is a great new addition to Hilton Head. If you love great food, love to dance or just love to be around energetic people where everyone in the restaurant feels like they are part of some big extended family - then Vintage Prime is for you! We had an absolute ball with our kids two nights in a row. Different bands + different people made the restaurant equally fun, but completely different. Cannot wait to return!!!!

    We returned to this restaurant for dinner and were greeted as if we were old friends. The owner visited tables to check on food, etc. which is a nice touch. I had an an amazing piece of salmon and my husband had a generous well prepared filet. We are glad to have discovered this gem. Cassie, our waitress, was efficient and pleasant.

    These folks are making an effort to have a good restaurant. They have a way to go. The food was good, some of it better than good. The pork chop was very large and very tasty and well prepared. The portions are very large, entrees could be easily shared. The menu is extensive and interesting. The entertainment was excellent. The service was pleasant, but unprofessional. The owner came by to check on things and that was nice. Another man came over, probably another owner. He looked drunk and disheveled. Never introduced himself so I don't know why he was there. All in all, good food, amateur service, good entertainment. Lots of other choices in the neighborhood and they didn't reach the point that makes me want to go back.

    We arrived for dinner excited to be entertained by Deaz Guys Band. We loved the warm bread and flavored butter. The salmon was ok (did not come with a starch). Desert was very good...chocolate lava cake with icecream. Wine was very good - Honig Cabernet reasonably priced. The pork chop was a generous serving. The service was very courteous. We enjoyed the food and fun at vintage Prime!

    I booked a reservation for four adults during my recent July 4th vacation after noticing that the Deas Guyz Band was playing on Thursday night. I was skeptical since it was a new restaurant, but I took the chance. WOW...what a great experience!! I noted on my online reservation that I wanted to be able to see and hear the band...and I wasn't disappointed when we arrived. We were promptly seated at a fantastic table next to the dance floor and band. We were greeted by the owners and served by a great waitress, who also entertained us with her personality all night! We ordered food, drinks, and danced whenever the band played our favorite song. The variety of food on the menu was excellent and not overpriced! I recommend this restaurant!!

    First time dining at Vintage Prime. We went to see the 'Head Liners' (best band on the island), and had dinner. New restaurant, a bit pricey and there is a cover charge for the entertainment. I don't mind a cover for good entertainment if that's an option to have some evening life for us dancers! The Filet Mignon was amazing, the warm bread with herb butter sooooo good. Potatoes are potatoes and the mushroom crostini was a little disappointing (I've had it at Truffles/amazing). Overall, I will be going back for good music and great food!

    We enjoyed a very polished, upscale and elegant atmosphere, and the service was superb. Sam, our waiter, was very courteous, attentive and gracious - when we go back we will ask for him again. We had great seating for the band, and the music was great - 'Deas Guyz' never disappoint! The food was excellent - I had the fried scallops, which were prepared to perfection, along with house kettle-cooked chips, which were outstanding and NOT greasy! My other two companions had the fried shrimp, and we all enjoyed cole slaw, corn bread (which was the best corn bread I've ever eaten), and I had the mint chocolate chip gelato, which was awesome! We ended the night with a shot of tequila... who could ask for anything more?

    We went to this restaurant to see a band we really like (which was great) and decided to have dinner before hand. It was very disappointing. I had a $29 piece of steak and a $7 bowl of spinach. The steak was tough and not very flavorful. The creamed spinach was soupy. When purchasing a steak, everything else comes separate. I have eaten at steakhouses before where this is the case but the steaks were amazing and the sides were fabulous so I didn't mind spending the money. That was not the case here. The service was very slow and the server was not knowledgable about the menu. Our server disappeared for 30 minutes and getting our water refilled was non existent. We will not be going back.

    My wife and I went out for an early (5:30) Fri nite dinner. We generally avoid newer dining establishments. but decided to give Vintage Prime a try. They were't busy at that time, so Sam our server gave us his full attention. Martinis and Manhattans were better than average. Oysters Rockafeller were outstanding. My wife and I split a strip steak{slightly over cooked}, loaded baked potato and broccoli- all very good. The gooey chocolate desert was a fine ending to the evening. The decor was attractive and there is entertainment most evenings later. The future Prime Rib cooking method sounds exciting and will be worth a visit on our fall return trip.

    Great venue set up for dinner and BACKGROUND MUSIC. Present acoustics do not lend well to that end. Food was fair at best. Some items were sent back not palatable. Server was polite and friendly but very forgetful. This young restaurant better make some quick changes if it's going to survive HHI scene. The place has great potential but no matter how good the music is that won't carry the load or pay the bills. Overall we were disappointed to pay $140 for poor food and service! I would rate the ambience higher if were not for the music being so loud that you could not hear the person next to you to carry on a conversation.

I invited two friends to join me and we mingled at the bar while Cheryl Christine did a great job on the piano. I'm glad Reggie is going to be there on Thursdays. He's great, I've been a fan of his for years. The restaurant looks so much better than before with the changes you have made.

    We visited on a quiet Tuesday evening and were treated to a five star dining experience. The French Onion Soup was great. The Caesar Salad was really different with a uniquely tangy Caesar dressing. The carpaccio was the best this carpaccio lover ever tasted! The filet mignon was done exactly as we asked...medium and was delicious. What more can we say? We will definately detour back to Hilton Head to dine at Vintage Prime in October when we return to Florida.

    While we enjoyed the band playing throughout Dinner the food was just okay. Our server was really hustling around and being very attentive so it was not his fault but the food took a long time to come out as they were very busy. The flavors of most of our dishes were very bland so if they want to keep the people coming in they need to ramp up their entrées with some flavor. It is an older crowd so maybe that's just the way they like their food !

    The food was good, but not exceptional. Mostly old standards, done well. The service was friendly and attentive, though a bit disorganized. The restaurant had only been open for two weeks and the staff appear to need a little more time to settle in. Worth giving a second try, especially when feeling carnivorous.

    Accompanied by another couple, we dined at Vintage Prime for the first time. Following excellent drinks at the bar, and a good, lightly-dressed Caesar salad, we ordered a variety of entrees: veal osso bucco, prime rib, grilled salmon with lump crab, and grilled pork chop. ALL were excellent! If you are concerned that this is only a beef house, be reassured...there are lots of great alternatives. (Only four tables were occupied on this Tuesday evening, but I hope things will pick up as the word spreads.)
