T-Prime Steak and Seafood Restaurant
We had a 6:30 reservation and had no problem finding a seat, because we were the only party in the dining room. The outside tables had several golfers. (This restaurant is actually in the Avalon Country Club)
Around 7:30, the dining room got busier. The food was fresh and the wait staff was pleasant. I would definitely go back.
We had dinner at T-Prime to celebrate my mother's 100th birthday. Everyone was very cordial and helpful. The food was delicious and the service excellent. At the end of our meal my mother was given a delicious dessert with Happy 100th birthday written around the edge of the plate in chocolate sauce. A lovely way to end a delightful meal.
Outstanding meal. I had the 9oz filet (they were sold out of ribeye) with mushroom risotto and lobster Mac and cheese. Filet cooked absolutely perfectly at mid-rare and seasoning perfect as well. Sides were both hot, large, and flavorful. Chef came by at end of meal to ask how everything was. Props to him for his concern and skill level.
Service gets a 3/5 due to two requests not being fulfilled. We asked for two more rolls and never received. Later I asked for a water refill and never received. Otherwise it was fine.
I would not hesitate to come back.
We made reservations for 11:45 for Father’s Day. When we arrived, they seemed surprised. They asked if we wanted to set in pool pato area. Sure. At 12:45, we finally asked for them to check on food. They apologized for the wait. At 1:00, the server asked us for a credit card because only Members were allowed in the pool patio area. What?! You asked us if we wanted to sit in the pool patio area. Finally, we got our food at 1:25. Our server kept apologizing. Said the Manager was coming to chat with us. That never happened. Food was actually very good according to my family. I had a stomach ache from stress so I did not pay attention to the quality. We were actually visiting to see if we wanted to join. Very disappointed. I ate here one other time and it was great. We saw 2 tables arrive after us, eat and leave before we even got our food. Word of advice, join before you go.
The hostess was very friendly. The server was attentive and the meal was delicious! The steaks were cooked to perfection and the fish was excellent! The chef even came out to ask how it was. We will definitely be coming back.
Excellent service. Fish was perfectly prepared. Even the other guests made kind comments.
We went the day after Valentine’s Day and the experience was great. Friendly and helpful staff was very attentive to our needs. Our meals were delivered in a timely manner. We never felt rushed. My wife received a pretty rose at the end of our meal. We will be back!
I was looking for somewhere we had never been before to take my wife for Valentines. Never even heard of T-Prime, but drove 30 min from Maryville as 1st time guests due to OpenTable and Google reviews. I don't regret doing it. Being a special night I can't comment on what it might be like on a daily basis, but they were certainly prepared for the night. Service was great, attentive but not annoying. Manager stopped by to check on dinner both before and after the meal. A few specifics about our order: the Avalon Shrimp appetizer was excellent. My wife had a wedge salad which she enjoyed. I had the New York Strip which fell into the "ok but not great" category for a high end steakhouse. The fat had not been rendered at all from the outside so my 14oz strip was about 10oz beef. The grilled asparagus was wonderful, not limp and overcooked as it often is. My wife's Filet Mignon was literally one of the best I have had in years. Obviously I don't know if they always hit that standard, but if they do I have found the best filet in the greater Knox /Loudon / Blount County area. I guess the most important part of any review for me is that we will return and see if they deliver that same quality consistently. If they do then we will be regulars.
Bake potato was cold’ steak was under cooked
Best kept secret in Knoxville. Steaks are great, spicy crab dip appetizer is a must! Creative menu and very good service!
Fine dining. Delicious food and good service. Will definitely return and tell others
Decided to visit since close to the house and wanted to see what their "a one of a kind experience" was all about. Arrived early before our reservation, but was seated immediately. Nice interior, intimate setting with view of lake and outside dining area. Service was outstanding. I had the filet, wife had the ribeye; sides chosen were the asparagus, mashed potatoes along with lobster mac and cheese. Food was UNBELIEVABLE. Steaks, mac and cheese were beyond awesome cooked perfectly and full of flavor. The chocolate cake we had for desert was fantastic, and came with a special presentation for our 40th anniversary. As Chef mentioned when he stopped at the table, a lot of people stay away from restaurants at golf courses because of the perception of the food at a golf course restaurant. T-Prime Steak and Seafood beats and blows away any preconceived ideas completely out of the water. This was an outstanding find--good food, good ambiance, quick and welcoming service--everything came together for a wonderful night out. The only down side is we might not tell our friends so we can keep the spot to ourselves. WE WILL BE BACK!
Great place to dine! Great food, service, and experience. Specials (ravioli, steak and meatloaf with truffle mash potatoes were outstanding.
I enjoyed the red snapper with vegetables and my husband had mushroom ravioli with beef tips. Both entrees were outstanding! If you haven’t tried this restaurant, you are missing out!
We made reservations before we left for December Sunday Brunch! We are looking forward to going back and bringing our family with us:)
My husband and I went to T-Prime recently with ‘early bird’ reservations for 5:30, arriving at 5:00 so that we could first have drinks in the tavern. - Atmosphere & decor was great, beer & wine choices were great, service was wonderful, (both in the bar and the restaurant) and the food was fabulous. - However, this place suffers from one flaw that is very common in ‘country club’ venues: not enough people know about it or assume it’s open only to members. - This makes for a somewhat underutilized space. - Avalon is open to the public and I believe needs to advertise more, perhaps offering more specials to bring in the general public. Based on our experience, (my husband had the filet and I had the Seafood pasta medley), if you try it one time, it won’t be your last!
We had a great experience with excellent food and drink. The crab dip was especially wonderful.
Very intimate and relaxing evening
Great experience. Maybe a little bit more attention to the bathrooms before dinner opens up. I know the club house bathrooms serve the members through the day. So just a little attention to them before they open for dinner.
My wife and I really enjoy getting out there and trying new places. This was a great experience and the food delicious. Very romantic and the wait staff was kind and caring. Felt like we had the place to ourselves. Just wish they had some better signage to let you know where it was and when you arrived. Maybe a sign on the building or near the curb.
We had dinner on Friday evening and everything was very nice. The restaurant was pretty empty. It's too bad more people don't know about this nice venue. Our dinner and service were both excellent. The atmosphere is very relaxed. I hope more people discover the restaurant and help keep them in business. We would definitely go back.
Nice setting. A good surprise. We will go here again.
Quiet and quaint with wonderful food and service! We definitely will be back!
We had a lovely family dinner at T-Prime to celebrate our daughter’s high school graduation. The food was superb and the service was excellent. The steaks were delicious and cooked just right.
My family treated me to brunch at T-Prime and everything was perfect. There were so many delicious options to choose from; it even made my picky eaters happy! The prime rib was full of flavor and the chicken manicotti was rich and cheesy. The wait staff was nice and very attentive, especially for a busy Sunday. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion.
The food was great!
We had a wonderful evening at T-Prime. Great Food, Great Service, and Great Friends! Will definitely be returning.
We had a very nice dining experience at T-Prime. We had 6 in our party and everyone enjoyed their food and the quiet atmosphere. We had steak and seafood and both were excellent. I would definitely recommend giving this place a try for a nice dinner out.
Was expecting a full restaurant. Maybe my expectations were wrong. Small Buffett friendly staff good drinks.
Food was excellent! I made reservations for 2, then 4, then 4 cause you cannot made reservations for 10 people on line. I called first then got hung up on. Service is terrible. Waitress did not speak to no one. No drink for one of my table. The table that got drinks coffee was cold. You need to put oj back on the table so we can serve ourself. I feel sorry for the guy cooking working his butt off because he the only one trying.
Very poor service . Food was excellent. No one ask us for drinks.
