Literally no ambiance at all and incredibly noisy, but the food is fabulous! My husband’s filet was cooked exactly as he asked for and my crab cake was delicious. A bit pricy, but we had a groupon, so that was a bonus.
Great service as usual. The food was fantastic. Prime 13 has become my favorite restaurant for steaks.
I took a group of people to Prime 13 for my Birthday and they were super accommodating for our large group. The food was delicious and service was excellent!
Absolutely fabulous food, from appetizer, dinner and the best cannoli tacos!! Our third time there and can’t wait to go back.
Been there half a dozen time in the last couple years.....Great food....great time.....always.
I had a groupon that was about to expire and wanted to use it. When we arrived I showed our server the groupon. He told me that it was good for $50.00 off our dinners. It was restaurant week and we ordered off the special menu.
When the bill came he said we couldn’t use the groupon off the special menu. He had never told us that and he knew we had the groupon. The meal was overpriced and mediocre. The place was loud and by the way we waited 20 minutes before the waiter took our order!
I don't mind paying $30 for an excellent piece of meat, but having to cough up $9 for a few stalks of asparagus, $9 for broccoli rabe or $8 for a few Brussel sprouts makes me feel I'm being taken advantage of. They also need to address the issue of that sad little wilted salad that's just one step away from the waste bin.
So amazing. Small, sort of loud, but totally worth it.
Excellent as always!
Although the restaurant was crowded and busy the service was really off. There were only two people taking orders and our waitress completely confused our entire table's order; party of six. The food that was eventually delivered was good but not as well prepared as in the past. The male working the front end of the restaurant was a bit "tipsy" and of no help to the guests or to the wait staff at all. The last visit to this restaurant was better but still but the wait staff was again under manned. In all fairness the wait staff were running their tails off and I would have to blame management for the short coming and not the workers themselves.
The food is beyond good. Great steaks, scallop appetizer is so good. Try the canolli tacos. Yum
Food was excellent. Customer service extremely lacking. Server through away half my wife’s entree which she asked to take home and no attempt to accommodate was made. Restaurant is poorly run on the serving floor.
I’ve been to many great steakhouses over the years,..but none better than Prime 13 ! While all their menu offerings are excellent,..their Delmonico ( my favorite ), is easily the best rib-eye that I’ve ever had anywhere ! Great spot if you’re looking for BYOB, great service, fair prices, and the best carnivorous experience around ( and especially in the shore vicinity ) !
Delicious, delicious, delicious. Top restaurant in the area. We had the Tomahawk steak for 2 but it easily feeds 3. My friend had scallops that were also very good. Mac & Cheese is a must. It is more then just a steak place. You can't go wrong with anything. BYOB makes it even better. Save room for dessert. I really like the canolli tacos! Must make a reservation well in advance.
It was awesome !!!!!!!!!! It was my mothers 89th birthday she loved the place plenty of food and worth the money .
We had a blast....great food & great servers
The food and service were great! We would definitely go for another visit!
The service and wait staff could not be more accommodating. The steak I had melted in my mouth and was cooked as ordered. I ordered the grilled octopus. It was tender and charred perfectly, but the sauce that accompanied it left a lot to be desired. Very bland. Needed maybe a balsamic glaze or more spice. All in all, the experience was great and I would definitely go back again.
Excellent meals and service
Will be going back for next special occasion
Dinner was fantastic. Best steak place at the Jersey shore. Our waiter Chris was outstanding.
Willing to make substitutes on my meal selection. That’s a big bonus for me. Service was very good. Food was very tasty
Great place good was yummy but felt a little rushed
Very disappointed after friends telling us how great Prime 13 is. When my dish came out I was very impressed with how much lump crab I had on the plate with my fish. Then I cut the fish and found it wasn't cooked. I sent it back and when I got my dinner back again I had very little lump crab on the plate. My husband was waiting for my meal to come back so we could eat together and his steak ended up being cold.
Didn’t have reservation in their system had to wait half hour past our reservation time. Ordered bacon appetizer very dry not flavorful at all. Fish tacos also not up to par. Delmonico steak very fatty and chewy and pork chop also dried out. Sides were basic at best onion rings dry,MAC and cheese burned and creamed spinach from a box. Wanted to like it but too many issues with food for this money.
We were very disappointed with this place. After reading so many great reviews, I was very surprised. they totally forgot to bring us our salad. now, all entrees come with a salad, so how do you forget? The shrimp appetizer was fair, but the top sirloin steak was uneatable, so so tough. No apologies, no offer of a dessert, which we probably would have turned down anyway. Would never recommend, and would never go there again. We spoke to other friends who similarly were not impressed with this place.
Great porterhouse steak for two! Delicious! Twice baked potatoes were also very good. Buffalo shrimp appetizer was a good choice as well.
From start to finish everything about this establishment was amazing, and that is an understatement. Thank you everyone for such a great evening.
Sat at the chef's table for the first time. What an excellent experience. The chef and staff made us feel part of the kitchen. The food is always top notch. Best steakhouse around.
Your food is excellent, your pricing starting to get pricey. The delmonaco steak getting pricey. You would expect, for the price of the meal you would get better atmosphere, zero ambience place has no class at all. Might not return
The steak was over cooked and we were charged for an item we didn’t receive. The waitress and manager both seemed bothered that we complained and overall it was not a good experience.
Jennette was wonderful. On top of things, but not overbearing. Dinner was delicious, very enjoyable. Thank you
The food was delicious. Steak was very tender and cooked perfectly. The service was excellent. Had a prefixed menu special and had the sausage appetizer which was also very good and tasty. Can not wait to go there again!
As usual, Outstanding. Gerard is the perfect host. Steaks are cooked to perfection and we brought some fine wines. How can you top that? CHALLENGE! Enjoy your evening!
Not great. Average
Great food and service! We love the PB13 bacon! Our first time and we will definitely come back....
My boyfriend and I tried Prime 13 out tonight and it wasn’t to our delight. I requested the filet mignons to be cooked “medium well” (pink inside by menu description). However, the steaks were unevenly cooked throughout. 1/3 of the filets were ruined as they were cooked well done and bone dry. Both steaks were cooked differently we noticed as well even though we both asked for them to be cooked medium well. My steak was cooked more well done than my boyfriend's. Additionally, The center of each steak was not cooked pink like requested but red in color and was rare. You figure a good “steak place” would not have this issue in cooking the meal especially if its focus is on steak and the restaurant is priced like a higher end 5 star restaurant. Big let down with the steak outcome along with paying the high end price to boot. Service was friendly and apps were flavorful which are the only reasons for a 3 star rating or it would have been a 2 in my book. If looking to knock your guy's socks off with a nice steak restaurant you would be better off going elsewhere for fine dining.
Their website leads you to believe that it is more of a traditional, stuffy, steakhouse but, in actuality, we were pleasantly surprised to find that it is has a modern, family-style feel and the menu and specials offer fun, vibrant, delicious twists on traditional steakhouse fare.
Everything from the ahi tuna tacos on crispy wonton shells, to the French Onion soup, the P13 Bacon, to the steaks and lamb was delicious. The sides and dessert were delicious too. The staff is friendly and the owner stopped at our table to personally check on us.
My wife and I went to Prime 13 on Easter Sunday. We were promptly greeted and seated by friendly staff. The appetizers, dinners, and desserts were excellent. The food was fresh, well prepared, beautifully presented, and served at just-the-right temperature. The restaurant a single large room with tables and chairs. Yet it is all about the great food and excellent service, and Prime 13 has both. Price for two with tip was $150. One disappointment, is they did not accept our Groupon. Google "is Easter a holiday", and with all respect, no it is not a holiday. Yes, we recommend Prime 13 and will return soon.
You won't find a better steak anywhere else.
