We dine out 2-3 times weekly and this was one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had. We sat for 15 minutes before we were even acknowledged. Granted, they were busy, but not even a “hello, I’ll be right with you.”
We didn’t have utensils when the food came...we asked for salt and pepper and the waitress never came with it. $45 for a steak that was filled with grizzle and was like shoe leather. We also had the shrimp appetizer that was drenched in a sauce that was so salty we couldn’t eat it. I asked for a salad and was brought a tiny bowl of lettuce with a cucumber slice on it. However, the mashed potatoes were good...but, it wasn’t worth $125 to enjoy a bowl of mashed potatoes.
There are a lot of great steak houses in NJ...Prine13 is not one of them.

As I had read the place is a little cramped and very noisy, but it was casual and fun! Food was excellent! Started with the “Angry Octapus” , excellent with a nice charred flavor. For entrees my wife had the flank steak, which was cooked exactly how she wanted it and I had the Delmonico, which was awesome. Too full for dessert. It is a little pricey, but we went in knowing that and the fact it’s a BYOB is great!

Good expensive steaks. No table cloths, bulky wine glasses, energetic wait staff, lots of little kids with parents in cut offs and sandals. Not what we expected.

Every thing as fine. The only thing was i did not expect it to come out black. My steak was cooked med. Rate as I ordered,very tender, but the wood burning grill made the outside black, crusty.The meat under the crust e excell. My wife had the crab cake said it was the best she ever had.

Prime 13 was very loud, two of the pricey steaks were burnt on the outside, and although we ordered medium rare, it was cooked through. The steak was very dry. In addition, the steak looked very lonely on a huge white plate with nothing else. At the very least, two sides should be included in the price- this is no Peter Lugers. The service staff, however, was very attentive and polite. As it was my son's birthday, I chose not to complain or send anything back.

Returned for the P13 bacon and it wasn't quite as good as I had remembered (much less smoky). Ribeye, although expensive, was good and the new hit for me was a grilled romaine Ceaser salad...outstanding!

I highly recommend Prime 13 if you’re a person who enjoys a bone-in ribeye. Their Tomahawk competes with most of the top chop houses I’ve been to which includes some of the best in the country. The $90 price point is AWESOME value! If you go there, give it a try! You won’t be disappointed!

Every course of our dinner (soup, salad, entree, dessert) tasted absolutely fantastic. Really good food. Our server was great too. Tables are packed into a relatively small area so everyone is sitting very close to one another which leads to a loud meal. Also 2 fruit flies dive bombed my glass of wine which was kind of gross. I would definitely go back because the food was so good. If you're looking for a nice quiet meal to celebrate something with your wife this might not be the spot, but if you're just looking for a great meal you have to check this place out.

Went for dinner on 8/30 (our 5th visit this year). As usual the food and service were excellent.
My only complaint was that it was very smokey, it seemed as if they were having exhaust issues.

We had a wonderful meal and our server (who also happened to be the manager that night) was very attentive, however we asked 2 different wait staffers for more steak sauce, which neither delivered. We asked the manager who informed us they ran out of A-1 (hard to believe since our reservation was at 5 pm) but he would be happy to get us bar b q sauce or another type they had available. We were surprised when we got our bill and they had a charge of $1 for the special sauce! We had a party of 4 and ordered appetizers, steak dinners with 2 sides, and coffee and 2 desserts,and they are charging us a $1 for steak sauce. Seriously, they wouldn’t charge us for that at Applebee’s or the Outback let alone a high end restaurant. We also had to continually flag someone down to refill our water glasses. They also never cleaned the table after each course.

Always a phenomenal steak at Prime 13. Switched it up with our party of 3. Hat the sushi grade tuna as an appetizer with a side of onion rings. Both were excellent. These are probably the best beer batter onion rings around. Followed up with the Tomahawk, creamed spinach, and twice baked potatoes. We could not finish it all. In addition to the great food the interior has been renovated within the last year and the room is great.
