We were a bit disappointed by the experience; not up to the quality and expectations of previous visits. The evening started off well enough as we were met and served promptly by a friendly and helpful cocktail server, and we were seated in timely fashion, but our experience went down hill from there. It took quite some time from ordering to actually receiving our meal. The time between courses was far too long (a minimum of 30 minutes from salad to entree and another 30 minutes after main course to coffee and desert. We all ordered the largest prime rib cut but the customary offer of "seconds" after completion was received well after the initial serving was consumed, almost as an afterthought. Our server was very inattentive. The food was tasty but surprisingly, the beef WAS NOT tender. Was it indeed prime? The sides (creamed spinach, creamed corn, and mashed potatoes) were the highlight of the meal. We felt a bit neglected by our server as he rarely checked in on our needs. Beverages were not replenished during the meal and our coffees were picked up before we were done and without offer of a warm-up or refill. The service and quality was definitely not up to the expected standards. We believe our most recent experience was an exception to the norm, so for that reason we would still recommend the HOPR...we're just a little less excited to return.

They don’t seat you until whole party is here in theory. Another group was seated without full party there.
Table wasn’t ready by the time that full party arrived after our reservation time.
The whole service aspect took a while. We Waited 15 mins at the table to be served. It took them over 30 mins to refill the water bottle at the table.
Food was okay. Baked potato and corn were better than the other two sides.
The bread they bring out at first wasn’t good. Another table got cornbread later so that might have been a lot better. We weren’t offered that.
Atmosphere wise, a lot of shouting was involved as it is near impossible to hear the people at your table elsewise.
Food wise, it was great value. It’s a solid British style prime rib. Nothing amazing or wow but nonetheless very solid especially given the price.

The food and service was wonderful as expected. I would have given it 5 stars however the noise level was deafening during most of the dinner so they get a 4 from me. Loud does not equate to energetic in my book. I like to hear what the person across from me is saying.

We were on vacation-the women of the family. We laughed at how the men missed out! We were greeted right away, lead straight to our table right at our reservation time. Our waitress was fantastic! The food was amazing and we giggled all night at how special and memorable it all was.

The meal was excellent. I can’t say enough about how delicious the salad, prime rib and sides were. Service and presentation were excellent. They sang happy birthday at our table. My only complaint was that we really felt rushed. After planning ahead to get the reservation 2 months in advance it would have been nice to be able to linger a little bit, digest our meal before scooting out the door. Other than that I liked it.

We have been to House of Prime Rib numerous times and it’s usually good. This time, unfortunately, the food was awful. I wish it was a better experience considering it was my husband’s birthday celebration and a special day since we announced to our family we are having a baby.

Last meal before the teachibgschool year. Ain't no cut like the King Henry cut. Constant hawkeye service and good balance of chit chat and checking in. Never disappoints. The math precision of their cutting of the Yorkshire pudding is the best!

We have been coming to H OF PR for years and we all agrees that though ALL the servers are great , this was the best one we have ever had. He really took good care of us and had the best persona. Thank you for having such a perfect place for our celebrations. I don’t even eat prime rib and the salmon was the BEST!
