The ambience was nice, there is a stench when you enter the resturant and the restroom don’t go with the resturant at all, but it is a new business and hopefully these things will change. The food and my waitress were amazing. I think that the resturant should do a better job in having breads available to its patrons regardless of time. There is a large group of people that like to consume bread with meals or even before meals, but to tell patrons that bread is not done rising and will not be baked until 3pm, is not good and should be corrected.

We were celebrating our anniversary. We were wished happy anniversary when we walked in, when our server came to our table and the manager came to our table also. Our dessert was decorated with Happy Anniversary too. The manager noticed from Open Table that we are frequent diners.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The pork chop was amazing and the bacon brussel sprouts keep me coming back. Service was friendly

I mean this place lived up to every rave review we have heard. Quiet, quaint and 5 star service. The food was amazing. My husband had the crab cakes. They were huge and had no filler. I opted for the salmon with glaze and boy I literally savored EVERY bite. The gruyere mac n cheese is to die for. Oh and I also had their red sangria, de-lish with a perfect kick. Thanks Prime Street for an amazing anniversary dinner.

Very good restaurant. Food was excellent. Made reservation. Unfortunately we had more that the eight people allowed for the reservation. (Only 8 allowed because of staffing) This was explained to us. So we had the table of eight, a separate table of four and the last two in our party, ate at the bar.

There were a few annoying flies at the table when we were trying to eat. We spoke to the staff about it. He let us know that no one else in the restaurant have complained and told us about the restaurant pest control standards.

The wait staff was outstanding. We will definitely eat at this restaurant again.

Had a very nice experience. Only issue I might have is it was my wifes birthday and I had mentioned that in my reservation. Midway through the meal a drink was brought to our table for my wife. I figured it was a complimentery drink from the restaurant and told the waitress thank you and that I thought that was a very nice gesture. I later found out that the drink was actually ordered by over the phone and paid for by my son. He said the drink was suppossed to come with a flower. There was no flower and the waitress should have told us the origin of the drink. I dont know why she didnt, maybe the ball got dropped somewhere. Otherwise she was a good waitress. Bottom line is that we had a wonderful meal and will certainly come back again. I have already reccomended the Prime Street Grill to other family members. Keep up the good work,,the meal was delightful. John Allen

Excellent evening with a party of seven. We arrived for our reservation time and were shown to our table immediately. The wait staff was exceptional and addressed all of our requests. The food was excellent, timely, and well prepared. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the entrees. The prime rib and crab cakes were the stars of the night! They were exceptional! Our waiter even offered to take our family picture for us! We were not rushed to leave after eating and were able to enjoy a few more minutes of conversation. We will definitely return for future celebrations or just casual couple dining. The little restaurant is truly a hidden treasure. If you are looking for a nice casual dining restaurant this is a “ must try”!

Milton was beyond amazing. I came to this restaurant to celebrate my 1 year anniversary and Milton executed my entire plan from start to finish! She was definitely surprised! The food was absolutely amazing. The lamb chops just melted in your mouth. The lobster tail....OMG! The steak....you didn’t need any steak sauce at all! You have to try this place but most definitely ask for Milton as your server!

The first few times that I dined at Prime Street Grille, my experience was okay. The Prime Street Grille is promising and probably the best dine in restaurant in the area because of the ambiance and service. However, the food is off point. The fish is not fresh but frozen; and they over charge for frozen food. All of the fish I've had has been flat and square. The shrimp and crab cake did not taste fresh, in fact, I've had better with Phillip's frozen offerings. The only menu item I've had that is consistently good is a burger. Although the size or amount of meat used seems to vary, it has always been good.

On Saturday, I had baked fish special and it was the same previously frozen squared fish; I refused to muddle through and sent it back. I wish they would change the menu, and use fresh meat and seafood.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Started off great, the waiters were great and attentive and the crab dip was awesome. Meals: Filet mignon: 1st was dry and sent back, the second was much better. Crab imperial and Cajun pasta were both bland and tasteless. Manager came around to ask how everything was, we let her know the issues with the meals and she basically shrugged it off and said “Ehh, I’ll let them know.” The best part was leaving because I knew I never had to return.
