Delicious food (the complementary cornbrrad and.honey butter!!! Yum), delightful servers and outdoor seating options. If I was local, I'd come back.

Visited Morgantown over the weekend and wanted to try a new place before seeing a show. My pal and I had outdoor seating, and Tucker was our waiter -- and he couldn't have been more helpful and congenial, coupled with a good sense of when we needed something. Great meal (steak frites, charcuterie board) and drinks (the "Almost Heaven"). Upscale with upscale prices, but upscale service and food. Thanks!

Steaks were undercooked, but still good. Rather under than over cooked I guess. The wait for our food was quite long and the outside seating I would only suggest before sunset. Our waiter was great and knew the everyone on n off the menu! I would give this place another try and def ask for the same waiter.

Food is OK.. not great.. pepperoni rolls were burned. A little noisy.. wait staff were helpful but seemed almost too busy.. Nice place for Morgantown but would not survive in truly competitive market.

We stayed two nights at the Marriott hotel where the restaurant is located and we had dinner and breakfast both days. Overall, we thought the food and service were good. Our server on Sunday evening, Tucker, was especially attentive, friendly and very knowledgeable and made great suggestions. The bartender/mixologist is great; he makes an excellent martini and a tasty negroni. If the weather is nice, the patio overlooking the river is a nice place for cocktails or meals.

I’ve been to Bourbon Prime a few times and liked the burgers, pizzas, and pepperoni rolls I got with my husband. Last Friday, I convinced my girlfriends to go there on our girls night out. Unfortunately, I left feeling embarrassed that I had recommended going there. We ordered the gnocchi, pork chops, and two pieces of the chocolate cake, and we were very disappointed in the small portions, especially the gnocchi and chocolate cake. I estimate that there were about 15 gnocchi in the dish, if that, and the chocolate cake was about the size of a cupcake. It was very disappointing, and we left hungry. Although the quality of the food was good, I don’t think we will be returning or recommending Bourbon Prime to friends due to the extremely small portions of some dishes.

The food was excellent, the restaurant is set nicely and quietly. The food is priced reasonably for a high end establishment but the drinks are very expensive. Have a bourbon and switch to water unless you want a monster bill.

I feel I caught the restaurant on an off night.

It was a slow Friday, and we had a 7pm reservation for two.

I had to go inside to find the valet.

It was not easy to find someone to seat us.

We waited 10 minutes at our table before receiving any service, including water.

The appetizer Lamb Bacon Pappardelle was fantastic.

The prime NY Strip was ordered MR and came MW and was not as tender as I expect a prime aged cut to be. The sauce was delicious.

The server was professional and helpful, so the lack of prompt service may have been caused or influenced by other factors.

The place was pretty much empty and there were plenty of servers. We waited almost 20 minutes to be acknowledged at our table. Once someone decided to be our waiter he did a decent job. The best part of the evening was the Country Roads Bourbon. The food was bland at best. We paid way too much for the quality of food presented to us. Far below what we have come to expect at a Marriott property. Save your money on the food and go there only for a night cap.

It is a nicely decorated place with a nice ambiance. The service was excellent and they had a decent wine list. They also had some really cool bourbon drinks if you like bourbon. My husband had one of the specials which was very tasty and nicely presented. I had the scallops and andouille sausage. They allowed me to substitute sides for something I liked better. I chose the scalloped cauliflower which was delicious. The sausage and scallops had a wonderful flavor but the scallops were very overcooked and chewy. When i mentioned this to the server, she comped us a dessert to compensate us. We had banana pudding and it was wonderful as well. I would definitely return to this place.

We ate here about 6 months ago. The food was delicious. I order shrimp and grits. This time everything was different. My shrimp and grits were not even the same looking meal. My mother's pepperoni rolls were burnt on the bottom. They did re make them. The Mac and cheese was ice cold as soon they were brought to the table. It's going to be a while before we are back. I'm not sure what changed but it was disappointing. I hope that maybe we're just there on a off night or something.

We are not from the area but ate at Bourbon Prime prior to attending Mountain Stage at the University of West Virginia. We both had fish as the main course and both dishes were very tasty and well presented. We ate quite early so the restaurant was uncrowded and very quiet at that time. The service was very good and the staff very friendly and helpful in answering all our questions and in giving us helpful directions when we left.

We went for Easter Brunch as we have enjoyed dinners at Bourbon Prime and expected similar quality. The Leg of Lamb was excellent. Other than that the food was very disappointing given the price and prior dining experiences. More what I would expect at a cafeteria style restaurant.

Our major complaint was the automatic gratuity of 22%! First of all there were only 2 of us in our group. Secondly, it was a buffet and the waitress essentially kept our tea glasses filled and took away dirty dishes...not worth 22% tip on an already expensive buffet.

Very disappointed in Easter brunch. Several food items were empty, and what was there was cold. Setting was in a loud banquet hall. Music was very nice. Will not go back anytime soon for a buffet.

Morgantown is not known for great fine dining so Bourbon Prime is a welcome addition. It is a good spot to take a business contact. The service was superb. The salmon was very tasty though the sides that came as part of the entree were paltry so make sure you order some extras.

For the price we expected a nicer setting. It was very small and completely open to the hotel area. Two of our four steaks were not cooked correctly. When paying $34 for a steak it should be cooked correctly.

What food we got was quality! However for 36 dollars you think they could give you a side! We got a chunk of meat and that's all! This isn't New York City the price far exceeds the quality....would it have killed them to give us a chunk of bread or a salad with our steak? We were not aware that it came with absoloutely nothing but meat!

We made a reservation through Open table and were seated immediately. The restaurant is large and nicely decorated. We ordered the Oysters to start, those definitely were not my favorite. However we ordered the scallop entire that was a special that evening and they were cooked perfectly!!! While we ordered some of the more expensive items from their menu, there are entrees at all price points from soups and sandwiches to seafood. The menu is fairly limited, but there's something for everyone.

Nice restraint adds sophistication, i.e. one page menu, limited decor but interesting architecture and open space atmosphere. Food is thoughtfully and creatively put together, mostly with success. Focus on steak and good whiskey validates the name. A great, special occasion experience. Inclusion of local food and artisans is a plus.

Visited here during my last visit to Morgantown, I was staying at the hotel and decided to give it a shot. I’ll just start by saying that the staff did an amazing job, our server did a tremendous job. My girlfriend and I were pleased with the quality of the food, but I do not feel that it was worthy of the price. Perhaps I would’ve been better served not choosing a steak as it does not come with a side, simply a garnish of two small roasted carrots and a roasted parsnip. The steak was slightly over cooked but nothing egregious, and was overall pretty good but nothing extraordinary, I selected the peppercorn sauce to accompany expecting something in the vain of an au poirve but instead got a light gray with a few peppercorns I was disappointed but perhaps I should’ve relied on our server so I cannot hold that against them. Overall the food quality was not in line with the price point I expected more, I realize the prices may have a lot to do with it being in the hotel, but I would not recommend this restaurant unless you wanna enjoy the convenience of the location as you stay in the hotel.

The special filet $33. was excellent. The cowboy steak $36. was good not excellent The noise from the bar got louder n louder as the night went on. At 8:00 on a Saturday night you would expect a lot of noise.

This review is based on our experience on Valentines Day 2019. I must mention that this was a special menu and not the daily menu, however based on our overall experience we will not try the restaurant again. Service was good no complaints there staff was friendly and a provide a good experience. Food...food was just OK, I had the Manhattan Filet and to be honest the filet at Outback is better, the biggest issue was the portion size. You know there is a problem when you are almost done with your entree and you are wondering if you have anything in the fridge at home to eat when you get there. I mean seriously who did you give the other 2/3's of my filet too? Cost.... I know it was Valentines Day but come on for the micro portions we received but you seriously cost yourselves a return visit.
