    Our server was very good. The appetizer we had grilled osters where great. My wife's tuna entrée was good. But my steak a sirloin strip was tough. So I sent it back and got the rib eye. It was OK at best but not prime as advertised nor was the strip steak. For the 71.00 dollars they charged for it, it was way not worth it. I've eaten here before and always very good but not Sunday night. Will I be back I don't know. I've had better at long horns for half the price. Sorry but one bad steak and on so so not so good.

    Our first time at this place. We loved how the tables were set up almost enclosed for privacy and to minimize noise. The food was great! Our waiter was attentive to our needs. It was a very hype place that would appeal to people wanting more ambiance and classier food. Not your stale, gross chain food. We loved it!

    Overall our experience was a 5 star evening. The food was amazing, and the waiter was exceptional. The variety of menu items was great and service was fast but not in a rushed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend and look forward to visiting when we return to Hot Springs. We had two issues that made it difficult to give a 5 star overall rating. We had reservations at 6pm for 2 and were seated at a small table next to another four topper. There were two lovely booths unoccupied across from us and when asked about them were told they were being held for 7pm reservations. They offered to put us upstairs, which we did, and it was a bar atmosphere with a line of very bright lights shining above us. As mentioned, the food and wait service was amazing but it put a bit of a damper on the evening, especially since we had made reservations. At $250 for two people, it would seem a reservation would allow for a nicer table. Also, at 6pm, they were out of several of their specials which is hard to understand at such an early time on a Friday evening. There was an incredible outdoor bar area that we didn't know existed and would loved to have had a drink in before dinner. Fireplace, great atmosphere, clear plastic on outdoor walls to maintain heat but allow for an outdoor experience, all the pluses! Again, loved our evening, just would have been perfect had not these two items come up.

    We recommend that every couple try 501 Prime. The quality of the food is the best we have had when we are in Hot Springs. This is our first reservation we make every year when we come over for a visit from Austin. Staff have been consistent in their excellent service and knowledge of food preparation and wine. Please go and enjoy!

    Excellent dining experience at 501 Prime. I mentioned it was our anniversary when I booked. We were greeted by the host telling us happy anniversary, as well as a handwritten card waiting on our table for us, which I thought was a very thoughtful gesture. Filets were cooked perfectly. Great atmosphere and service! We will definitely be back!

    We were honestly a bit disappointed with our experience at 501 Prime. Food was okay, not the best we've ever had. The filet was very good and cooked exactly to order. Drinks were crazy overpriced and at least one in our party complained that his Old Fashioned tasted very watered down. All in all for the price paid, our experience was very lack luster and honestly food and service was a step down compared to JB Chophouse where we ate the night before. We also found the extra 3.5% charge a little ridiculous. Food was good but I don't think we'll be back given the other excellent restaurant choices in town. It also rubbed me the wrong way that we were celebrating a birthday and we were not offered a birthday treat even though I heard a table close to us get offered one.

    This place was absolutely amazing. The food was one of the best filets I have eaten and the presentation of it was just as appealing. I was in town on a solo trip and seated at the bar and it was just the right amount of attention to my service to ensure I was comfortable. Would recommend.

    We have never had a bad experience at 501 Prime/Bourbon Bar. It’s a must every time we visit Hot Springs - several times a year. The bourbon selection is top notch, the food is delicious, and the service is outstanding. I would give more than 5 stars if I could!

    As always, the food here is spectacular. The table order steaks, pork and picanha - all were incredibly delicious and cooked perfectly. Our waiter, Chris, took our evening to the next level. Not only did he know every menu inside and out, but he was incredibly helpful and worked hard to make our celebration memorable. We will be back and send everyone we know for special occasions.

    Great food, great service, all delivered quickly and hot. but inflation has the pricing higher than I remember from our last visit in fall of 2021. With a strong tip, it was close to $90 per person. And my opinion, even with inflation, is it should’ve been about $75-80 including tip and taxes. So still worth it but a touch pricey.

    The service and food were excellent. We were not impressed with the seating. We were in a booth table that faced directly across from two booth tables that were facing directly at us and probably less than 8’ apart. That was the only thing we could see. If they angled the booths so that they did not face each other and it would make a more comfortable and private eating experience.

    Service was very slow thought since made reservation would be seated in dining area not the bar and saw several empty tables on our way to bar. My husband is handicap, and could not sit on high seat so then we were given a table at the bar area, service was super slow took forever to even get our drinks and oysters were awful this will be our last time to visit. Came here last year for our anniversary and it was great defiantly service and food has gone down hill. Again never will we come back.
