This was our first time going here and it was for our Easter dinner. We thought it was a bit overpriced for the portion size but the food was good. There was a cild crying behind us which made it a bit unpleasant but certainly not the restaurant’s fault. Loved the triple chocolate cheesecake for our dessert! We will try it again!

This is a somewhat hidden gem, and we have always had a good experience here. The food is outstanding, and the service is great. Prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and service, and it's intimate enough that you can have a conversation and truly enjoy your meal.

Nice to have choices when there are so many restrictions. We opted to dine in the restaurant rather than outside with the live music were in the bar next-door. The room was quiet and beautifully decorated. The wait staff was attentive and helpful. The food was good and presented nicely. We will definitely be back.

The restaurant itself is beautiful. The food was extremely hit or miss. When they brought out the steaks, my husbands was cooked beautifully. Mine (requested medium) was medium rare at best. I asked for it to be cooked a bit longer and it came back out the exact same. Just cooler the second time. As far as desserts, I ordered some type of blonde which ended up being delicious. My husband ordered a chocolate lava cake which was hard all the way through...no “lava”. It was extremely dry. He asked the server about it and she said they had been like that all weekend and apologized. She ended up taking that off the bill. For what we paid, the food was not what we expected. We will not be back, which is unfortunate.

The food was very good except Risotto was under cooked. Ran out of drink a few times which was odd considering it wasn't real busy. Very pricey.

The venue is extremely nice and elegant. Drink selection was great if you drink wine, but other cocktails were limited. The chicken noodle soup was excellent. The bread they bring out as sup-par. As far as the main course, we both had surf and turf (filet mignon with lobster tail). The lobster was perfectly cooked and tender. The filet was also cooked perfect, It was as tender as you could hope for. It did lack in flavor though. A simple kosher salt and pepper rub would have made it so much more flavorful. The lobster macaroni and cheese was fantastic. The garlic mash potatoes were just ok. Overall it was a very nice place to go for a more upscale date, but not a regular night out.

Beautiful setting and excellent, friendly service. We truly enjoyed the experience at T Prime. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere. The clubhouse is beautiful. All of the employees were courteous and professional. So, on my grading system, high marks on both ambiance and service...as for food quality, it was good but to be in the big league of steak houses, T Prime will need to find a new beef supplier. I had the ribeye. It was cooked well but it was surely not choice or prime beef, I suppose select. I will say the pricing was probably in line with the quality so overall, certainly not poor value. However, with such a beautiful setting and great staff, is a shame not to be able to rate T Prime higher due to poor beef quality. My date had salmon and it was excellent....

Valentine’s Day dinner. Food was delicious. However the lava cake we had for dessert tasted like it had been made days ago and was frozen in the middle... very dry and no lava. Other that that everything was good.

Pictures are deceiving, atmosphere is strictly golf, period. This is a grill and would not qualify as a “restaurant”. Extremely noisy and had not received a steak and potato order over an hour after ordering. Paid for drinks and left without eating. Will never return!

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.

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.
