Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the experience was fantastic! Our pre-dinner drinks were crafted well and reasonably priced. Food was served hot and with a wonderful presentation. To wind down the night, we were treated to an on the house desert and a photo to remember the occasion. We will go again!

We haven't been out to a restaurant in months but felt comfortable going to Southern Prime. It's large and the seating is well-spaced. The service, as always, was excellent as was the food!

Second time eating here while staying at Pinehurst. Sadly the steak that we were served was not good. It was extremely thin, over cooked and had no flavor. The Caesar salad though was good. The service was also good.

I truly enjoyed my dinner here. The only problem was that they cooked my steak incorrectly twice. The waitress Emilee was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and helpful. After my steak was cooked incorrectly, she apologized multiple times and the manager Austin came to apologize and made sure everything was perfect after. It was a good dining experience with just a few bumps that were fixed.

We love SP and have made it a tradition for our anniversary. The only small thing that was not as great as usual... they didn’t have our reservation... some glitch maybe? Anyway, they were able to seat us right away since we came early in the evening and everything was great. They go out of their way to make a special celebration for their guests on Anniversaries, etc. confetti on the table, a few other niceties. Since they didn’t have our reservation which stated it was our anniversary, we missed out on the extras. I guess we could have said... hey, it’s our anniversary, but we just didn’t seem to find the appropriate moment. We will definitely go back... just hope next time we use open table to book, they get the reservation.

We were visiting the area during the Covid phase 2 time. Tables were 6 ft apart, staff in masks and gloves but the experience was still wonderful. We dined in the wine room which had great romantic lighting and was quiet. The food was amazing. Husband got the lamb chops and I got the filet. Both cooked to perfection! Baked potatoes were terrific and I don’t eat potatoes but almost asked for a second. Seriously who makes rave reviews about a baked potato????
We followed up with NY cheesecakes and rolled out with full bellies.

Excellent food and excellent service!!! I had a special, the Sea Bass, and my wife had the Scottish Salmon. The Sea Bass was one of the best pieces of fish I've ever eaten and my wife says hers was "A ten!" Even the salads (wedge and house) were outstanding. We topped it off with a nice bottle of red wine (Cabernet) and a chocolate lava cake--the latter on the house for our 5th Anniversary! They even decorated our table with heart confetti and gifted us with a complimentary digital photo! The prices were fair, thus worth EVERY PENNY.
Our server, Emilee, did a spectacular job! She was nothing but all-smiles and class! And it was a pleasure chatting with the maitre d', Austin! Thank you Southern Prime! We WILL be back!

My wife and I have eaten at SP several times and this visit was one of the best. It was our 5th wedding anniversary and the staff set a special table, wished us a happy anniversary at every opportunity, and took our picture with a wonderful chocolate lava cake....All this may seem rather ordinary, except, we never asked them to do any of it! They just did it unprompted and it was extremely high class. Oh...and the Prime Rib is the best I have ever had.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday. The server Rami was amazing! Very friendly, professional and astute. My husbands lobster was over cooked initially and then it was under cooked. The chicken dinner was plain. It was our first time there , so we will try it again. We are new to the area. My husband is considering scheduling business dinners. The steak was excellent so we will definitely try again.

This is one of the best steakhouses in the Sandhills of NC. However, as it is one of the few steakhouses in the tony Pinehurst area, I feel their pricing is a bit aggressive. Service in the wine cellar area is always a real treat (we're always greeted immediately by the General Manager) and the ambiance perfect for a friendly family meal or a business gathering. Highly recommended but make sure you've got room on your credit card.

I ordered the exact dinner, :Land and Sea: as I always do when I show up at the Prime Steakhouse for a special occasion. This time the filet was not as before, but I ate half of it anyway. Just remember that Quality Control is extremely important!
