The restaurant was clean, the manager was attentive and waiter was friendly. I had the broiled cod, shrimp, and scallops....all was well. This was our first time visiting this place. It's likely we'll return again.

Highly recommend Prime Street! We are returning customers for so many reasons - the food is excellent and very reasonably priced; the staff treats us kindly and the ambiance is just what we need when we want to relax over conversation and good food and drink! What's nice and somewhat unique about Prime Street is that while the dining room is relatively small, it is not cram-packed with tables! The tables are well-spaced so you're not hearing everyone else's conversations and everyone else isn't hearing yours. Reservations are a must for Sunday afternoons!

This was a hidden gem. Being new to Maryland I was looking for a new experience to chair with my friend who is a gourmet cook. HE gave excellent rating for entire meal from the appetizers, soups, entrees and the bread pudding of a lifetime! We will definitely come back and Winston provides exceptional service. We will ask for him next time!!

Food has always been excellent and the service as well. Excellent lamb chops and Guinness on draft. Our only complaint is that the "party room" adjacent to the entrance makes for a lot of noise in the main dining room. Would suggest maybe some sort of wall or barrier to help block the noise.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – it was combination of 5 star but with a comfortable feel. I am definitely returning to try more dishes. The Filet mignon, lobster tail and brussel sprouts were delicious and my family enjoyed the crab cakes.

This is a best kept Waldorf area secret. I had a book club anniversary celebration there for 14 people and we all were happy with everything. I've gone back several times (with hubby) and same rating.

The food was good, well prepared. The manager on duty was on top of things and friendly. Our server was mildly attentive, she didn’t do anything wrong besides bringing the entrees with no stagger of time after the salads and appetizers. That being said she asked only once if we were ok with everything and that was only 2 minutes after the entrees arrived. She never offers to refill our beverages.

The larges issue was where we were seated. The restaurant as a whole is very nice , especially for the location , it stands out in a good way. However, the interior architecture of the room to the right of the entrance , especially where we were seated at the back of that room, lead to an extreme of sound amplification that made the entire experience very uncomfortable. The noise level was painful and inhibited the ability to have conversations. We will return to try them again, but won’t sit in that section or have that server. It’s a nice place with good food and what appears to be a good staff. If there was a way to fix that sound issue in that section of the restaurant it would rate much higher. But the level of service we received, coupled with painful sound, cannot be justified at that price point. Hopefully next time will be better.

My significant other and I dined at Prime Street Grille for the first time in January 2019. We've returned several times since than and have been underwhelmed each time. The restaurant has so much promise because it is the only decent sit down restaurant in the area, the menu selection is large enough, reservations are available. With the exception of the burgers, the food needs help in terms of taste and preparation. The ambiance would be so much better if the staff cleaned the carpet of the masked dirt, stains and debris. The service would be great if the servers were attentive.

I've had the crab cakes but they were dry and lacked flavor. The potatoes au gratin were hard as if they were undercooked. The fried shrimp and rockfish with crab imperial were blase.

We really enjoy the hushpuppies. On our last visit, the supply of hushpuppies was low so they were not being served as an appetizer. They were only available with the seafood platter. We ordered calamari, it was it was tasty. We both looked at one another, and said we won't return. Also, there was a group of ladies who were extremely loud and I wish someone would have asked that they whisper instead of speaking loud.

We ejoyed our meals at Prime Street Grill. Our server was excellent. I believe his name was Milton.
We had the crab dip. Though tasty, it seems to have less crab chunks than I remember from earlier times at PSG. Still we enjoyed our experience. Thanks.

The Service was very good and the food was delicious. This was Valentine's day dinner and I think they should have decorated it a little and pass out a rose to each woman or maybe had some romantic music in the background. They didn't but over all everything was nice and will be going back.

Will not recommend or attend again on Valentine's Day. Did not know they had a limited menu until I arrived. So we were pretty much forced to order something that we really didn't want. Because it was Valentine's Day, it was too late to get a reservation at another restaurant.

My nephew was in town and wanted to experience the Prime Street Burger I always tell him about. We came on a Saturday night and although they were quite busy the food was excellent as always. He totally enjoyed the burger and my brother loved the crabcakes. The only complaint was in being so crowded the conversations were quite loud.

It is a bit overpriced, so it wouldn’t be somewhere I would frequent; but great portions. The only thing I would change is the coleslaw. Too much celery and too spicy.
