Great steakhouse! Food and sides were AMAZING. Our waitress was also fantastic!
Got to love the buck a shuck on Wednesday. Rob makes the best old fashioned.
I cannot say enough about this restaurant. From the service, food, ambiance and experience they are always consistently top notch. I would highly recommend everything from steaks, seafood, oysters and the best whiskey selection around.
We had the best dinner date ever! We were celebrating our new marriage & we could not have picked a better place. The food was incredible, the service was spot on, and they even brought us out a sweet dessert at the end. We will definitely be back.
Excellent steaks, friendly service, and relaxed atmosphere.
The food and service was amazing. I thought we would sit in a romantic setting but instead we were in a bar setting. Hubby told them it was my birthday when he made reservations and they didn’t bring a dessert or anything. Other than that , it was good
This place is amazing!! Definitely a great place to enjoy some good food!!
Love this place. Recommend for special event or very nice night out.
Superb meal. Food was excellent. Stephen was our server and he was the best. I’ll definitely be back.
Where do I start? Went to Hot Springs for my 60th (😳) birthday weekend and had my birthday dinner at 501 Prime. Such a good choice...our waiter, Stephen, was professional, fun, attentive and was great with recommendations! Oysters were fresh and wonderful...steaks and martinis were awesome! I highly recommend 501 Prime...ask for Stephen 😁
Great ambience and a nice setting to celebrate our anniversary!
Great evening Dave was very welcoming. Drinks food and service fantastic.
One of the most phenomenal restaurants I have ever visited. Hannah was our server and she was by far ... AMAZING. She is a GEM that matches the quality of the food and the way we were treated. I felt like royalty! Thank you for an awesome night!
This place was amazing!!! Worth the money. We will be back.
Great selection of food and drinks! Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable
The entre was delicious, but it was only an entre....no bread or salad and rather pricey. We discovered they will bring you bread, but you have to ask for it. We felt that the atmosphere lacked warmth, both physically and in the ambiance.
There were a ton of flies where we were sitting, we asked our server if we could move to a different table and he said it's like that everywhere. So that was annoying and gross. But besides that it was good!
Chris is a top notch waiter! He is one of the best we have ever had. He could be running the place soon.
The food was off the charts amazing! We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.
What a wonderful dining experience. The staff was informed and attentive. The food was a combination of inventiveness and courage. Highly recommend for just about any occasion.
My husband was looking forward to prime rib but they don't serve it so i had the 4oz filet with mashed potatoes, my husband had the pork chop dinner. Both were amazing!!! Staff was amazing!!!
Great restaurant best value on the menu is the Pork Chop. A local favorite for us.
Amazing food! Great service!! Chris was the best waiter!!
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary and had a great experience. We made our reservations, and 501 Prime had a special booth set up for us. The server was very attentive and helped us in all of our selections. The manager came out and checked to make sure everything prepared for our liking. This was our first time and will not be our last.
Had to wait to see what was open due to Covid-19, for 30th wedding anniversary. Found 501 Prime and it was perfect! Fish and steak was fantastic. Service was great!
My oysters were over cooked and black on top instead of just toasted..I’m not one to send food back so we just ate them the best we could by scraping on bread crumbs but we love dining here
We had reservations it was a 50th birthday. Table was not in the restaurant it was upstairs in the bar area and was right in front of the kitchen doors we were not told this when reservation was made and reservation was weeks in advance. We spent 300 dollars and food and service was good an owner was attentive but we would have expected more attention to seating and special occasion.
Food and service were outstanding. The owner, David, stopped by our table, and, when we indicated interest, told us about his vision for his restaurant. As a citizen of Hot Springs, I’m grateful that he choose this location. Try it . It’s unique. Menu is ambitious. David delivers with very fresh seafood and perfect steak.
Amazing dinner, service and atmosphere, as usual. We ate then went out on the deck for live music. Awesome night!
Sat on patio. Music was just the right level so we could still talk. Several fans were blowing to keep things cool, but one was blowing directly on our table. When it was adjusted away from us the flies appeared so we spent the rest of the meal eating with one hand and waving our arm over our plates with the other. Food and service were great.
Went for a girls night and had a wonderful time. Lucky I’m only 45 minutes away, definitely will be back!
We celebrated our Anniversary at 501 Prime this weekend. It was our first time eating here and we were very happy with the food and service, The restaurant is beautiful! And there is parking! In Hot Springs that can be a problem. We hope to return soon and have another wonderful meal!
To start, upon entering we just felt welcomed. They wished us happy Anniversary and promptly sat us. Pur server was quick, knowledgeable, friendly and was willing to ask the chef my questions as I had a request that might upset some chefs.
The food was outstanding, great portions and well prepared. If I had to even come up with one negative it would be hard but I think the ceaser salad could have used a touch more dressing but please that is not a negative just a preference.
Hats off to the owner and chef may this place find success and they have earned loyal customers here.
The hostess was great! We got seated right away at our reservation time. Food was great! We got the Hawaiian Swordfish and the blackened Ribeye. Both were amazing! Great place for a romantic evening downstairs or a fun night out if you sit upstairs!
Started with grilled oysters which were amazing. Wife got steak kabob which included sautéed veggies which was also great. I had the strip steak with a loaded potato and both were top notch.
Service could have been a little better as we ran out of water a few times and had to flag people down, but that didn’t ruin the overall meal. Oysters were so good that we tried going again the very next night but were turned away because they had no openings (not even at the bar). Just know you need a reservation to get in and plan ahead. It’s a great meal and I highly recommend it for an upscale night out.
The food was fantastic; I know that sounds trite, but anything less would be an insult. We had smoked oysters and fish dip for appetizers and Filets with Oscar topping for our meals. Simply................................fantastic.
Our Host (I hate the word servers or waitress/waiter), Paige, was delightful. Very pleasant, always on top of things, but not hovering. She seemed to have The Force............she knew when we needed something before we did :). She also graciously purchased a dessert for us, as it was our 25th Anniversary. Just a sweet thing to do.
This place is really good, a bit pricey.
Very nice. Wait staff and bartenders wear face masks 😷 which I found comforting with the new rise in cases now. They have seating spread out as they should and also have outdoor seating as well, I will make sure to sit outside next time or bring a jacket to keep from becoming a popsicle. The spot where we were sitting was FREEZING cold. They apparently had the ac on subzero temperatures. It was a pleasant outing, the noise level was not bad until the end of our meal when it got a bit loud. We were upstairs in the bar area. Downstairs is much quieter. We have had the pleasure of dining in both areas.
I had the steak burger. It was excellent as was my appetizer of spinach and artichoke dip w/chips. My husband had the steak, that was really pricey. His opinion, it was an average steak. His come out better on his pit in our back yard. He usually gets the Wednesday special of $1 each oysters but decided to try the steak. He has vowed to go with the oysters from now on. He loves them and can eat 4 or 5 dozen at a time. The menu changes due to what they have brought in on a daily/weekly basis. I've had the Mahi Mahi and fell in love, I am waiting for that to make a come back. Hopefully soon I will have the chance. Definitely recommend.
I loved the individual seating arrangements. It made for a romantic dinner
Hands down my favorite restaurant in southern Arkansas. Nothing even comes close!!!
I normally love 501 Prime. This experience was not as expected. Our wait staff, Hannah, spent more time visiting with another staff member than working her tables. She snickered when we said we needed a moment to decide because we came prepared to order big eye tuna and the Hawaiian fish dish. Never suggesting any of the new menu items. She then put us off numerous times when we asked for bread, our water to be filled and I never received additional horseradish for my oysters. The porcini mushroom salad was great as was the bottle of wine we selected. We will definitely be back but will request other wait staff because we know it was simply a wait staff issue.
