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!

Overall a good experience. My steak was seasoned a little too much which made it a little salty. Tender tho. Will go back and request that they go light on it!

The food was great, the portion size was large enough for me to have half then and the rest at home. Waitress was attentive, seems like a great spot to use the private room.

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.

We arrived at the time for our reservations and were seated immediately. The service was excellent and the food delicious. Our food arrived at our table in a very short time and we thoroughly enjoyed everything and had some left over to bring home for the next night. The crab dip is delicious and our entrees of steak and chicken were also delicious. Our waiter made sure that we always had something to drink and also kept us informed when our entrees would arrive at our table. Excellent service, food and ambiance.

I highly recommend the Prime Street Grille! The food (entrees, sides and desserts) is delicious and unique without being too "exotic" or excessively "creative", as in, "trying hard to be hipster"! The staff is attentive and professional without being stuffy, and they treat us kindly. They do an excellent job of keeping up with all of the tables throughout the meal, even when the dining room is full. The ambiance is pleasant and relaxing. Your money and time is well-spent here. The Prime Street Grille is just what Southern Maryland needed!

Ordered a 20 ounce bone in rib eye. Steak appeared to be only a 12 ounce when it came(had a 20 ounce there before. It was much bigger). While rib eyes are generally fatty this one was nothing but fat. I sent it back they said all of them were like that. I ordered a filet mignon. It was mot a filet it tasted like chuck steak. Ordered it medium it came back medium well. I’m disgusted.

Overall great place; however must commit on the gent whom was assisting the female host at the door. He was very rude and obnoxious. Wife and I arrived early to meet dinner guess and proceeded to the open bar awaiting for there arrival. When we arrived to the open bar their where several folks standing around the bar and a few open single seats. My wife sat at an open chair and I stood beside her. While waiting for the attendant to serve us this host assistant walked over to us stating I could not stand at the open bar and must be seated. While this would not normally seem inappropriate if not for the other three to four guess standing he walked pass before approaching us. I asked the gentleman specifically, “this seems strange you would approach us seemingly bypassing everyone else” of which he had no reply and continued to state we could not stand there. My wife asked me not to go “bananas” on this rude unprofessional servant as to not ruin our evening so we left the bar to wait for our guess at the main area. P.S. note he never returned to the other guess to ask them to leave or be seated at chairs. If not having attended this place before and having a planned dinner party with guess arriving we would have walked out and flooded this place with negative comments. That guy needs to be fired! If not for him I would have given this the highest rating as every other time we visited we never had issues... Fire him before he kills you local business.

From the first step in the door no greeting. The host stand is hiding in the corner .The owner was standing at the host stand he offered no greeting either. Waitress made no eye contact as she was taking orders. The food was bland and not presented well. It deserves no stars but unfortunately it's not an option.First and last time at this establishment.

So I’m a Google Local Guide 6 and my review for this location is as follows.
A perfect selection for any relaxed occasion. Not noisy and wild. Prompt service, great customer service smiles and all. Wonderful greeting and menus ready. Now let’s talk about the food! This is the best rib eye so far in Southern Md. The Rock fish, fresh meaty & the crab balls cooked to perfection, really! Our dishes were Top of the line & it was totally worth the cost. Can’t wait to return.. we reserved our seats, reservation system was very friendly. Thanks guys...

One person in my party ordered a well done prime rib. The steak was served rare and bleeding. The server got the order wrong. She took it back to cook it some more and brought it back medium well and the steak was still pink. The second time she took it back to cook more, the manager brought it back. After re-cooking the steak twice, it was too tough to eat. The white female manager spoke to us very condescendingly and never offered to cook a fresh steak or refund my money. I am a very good cook and could have cooked at home, but we were out celebrating my daughter's birthday. I opted not to cause a scene so as to not be labeled as an angry black woman. 2 out 3 meals were prepared correctly, however, the manager should have offered a better resolution. I spend my money wisely and will not be going back there or recommending this grill to anyone else.
