    This is our favorite special occasion restaurant. My husband and I both had the filet. It was cooked to perfection, & I had leftovers. So, well worth the money. My cocktails were delicious & the dessert was a perfect end. We appreciate the attention to detail that the staff gives. When we made our reservation we stated that it was our anniversary. The table was decorated accordingly & the server acknowledged our celebration. We will be back!

    The evening started off well with drinks. The salads then took over 25 minutes. Had to ask about entrees. They took longer then then the salads. I ordered my steak medium rare. It was very well done. I mentioned to the manager who took it. I would think after all the above another steak would arrive soon. After 20 minutes no steak. We left. I didn’t have to pay for anything. We go there every months, no more this year.

    Steaks were bland, scallops were extremely overcooked and the creme brûlée rivaled children’s play-doh.

    We went for our anniversary for the first time. They went above and beyond to make it a great experience for us. Decorated table, free lava cake, and complimentary picture. The food was great, and the staff was even better. I would certainly come again!

    It was my first time dining there, and we were a party of four, celebrating my father‘s 80th birthday. Overall everything was very nice. The hostess was very sweet and placed some happy birthday sprinkles on the table which was very special. The meals were quite good, though the bruschetta was disappointing, and although the steaks were very tasty and well cooked, they lacked any juices when cut. My father loved the Sea Bass. It was very nice of the establishment to offer my father a complementary dessert for his birthday, as he thoroughly enjoyed it. We did have to ask for the lamp on the table to be lit, and in all honesty, not one time did our waitress come through to refill any water glasses. She was attentive to the cocktails , however the water ran dry and she didn’t pop over too often. Overall, we had a wonderful time no serious complaints about the food. The interior of the restaurant was a little noisy to carry a conversation across the booth table, but that did not last long. The staff was welcoming And we had a wonderful evening.

    The restaurant, food, and our dinner server were absolutely amazing. We had a great dinner wrapping up a guys golf trip. The issue we had was the bartender after the meal. We asked for a group photo after we ordered around of Expresso Martinis, and she declined! Gave us a story of the dishwasher was broken behind the bar (understandable) and didn’t have the time. Meanwhile 2 minutes later she was just standing around talking with the other bartender. I know it sounds petty, but when someone drops a grand with dinner and after dinner drinks, it doesn’t seem like a bad request. Don’t get me wrong, we all 1000% will go back to this restaurant bc everything else was amazing. We just might skip the after dinner drinks at the bar.

    We have been to this restaurant several times and this time it was just ok. The Ceasar was room temperature. Scallops had a little ammonia taste which was disconcerting. Atmosphere is always good and service was as well. We will go back, maybe it was just an off night.

    Taylor was out server tonight and she was awesome! We went here for our anniversary and they had little hearts on the table when we arrived and told us Happy Anniversary when we we got there. After dinner they presented us with a lava cake and Happy Anniversary written in raspberry and then even took our picture. Then they presented us with our picture in a card telling us Happy Anniversary. What a great night! We will definitely return!

    My husband, son and I were so excited to try this restaurant, however, we were disappointed. We were seated in a lovely, private area, which was nice. It was very poorly lit though, compared to the rest of the restaurant. My husband had to use his cell phone light to read the menu. Despite being in a private area, it was just so noisy. Conversation wasn't too difficult, but it was difficult to hear someone sitting at the end of the table. We all ordered steaks. 2 of them were sent back for being cooked too much, they were dry. My husband ordered sautéed mushrooms as a side, with the menu stating the sides were for 2 people. He received diced mushrooms, which were useful as a topping, but definitely not as a side. They remade those as well, but he still received diced mushrooms, which still isn't a side food. For the price point I expected top-notch food. The service was good, not wow! All of our questions were answered appropriately. My kid did have to ask for refills when his glass was completely empty. I think we will take SP off of our list of go-to's for an evening out.

    Our second visit was amazing! The food on both occasions has been delicious, from the appetizers to the entrees and desserts. The environment is very comfortable and pleasant. The hostesses are friendly, the manager is very involved, which I love to see, and our waitress, Courtney, has been fantastic both times! We will definitely be back again. Best steakhouse in the area!

    The overall atmosphere was ok. The people at the tables around us were very loud. The waiter started out pleasant but by the end of the meal she was rude. The food took way too long to come out and once it did the food was cold. The nicest thing about the whole experience was the manager.

    Five of us had dinner to celebrate my wife's and my anniversary. The food was very good, especially the steaks and the French Onion soup. The mashed potatoes were exceptional, while the Brussel Sprouts were a little tough and over done. Dessert was fantastic. I will always give Southern Prime a 5 as long as the service is as wonderful as it has always been for us, the noise level is such that we can talk quietly and hear one another, the atmosphere is very upscale, and the food is a minimum of good and a maximum of great. One of the best restaurants in all of Moore County, from a guy who has eaten well in many parts of the world.

    For the first time (we have been to the restaurant before) we were disappointed by the restaurant. The special that we order (spinach artichoke dip) was extremely disappointing - it was served with pita bread that was so hard like was from days before, like very old bread. The main dishes took a long time to be served, then the lobster add-in that my husband order came later and came raw! We had to send it back. The mushroom side I ordered was tasteless and I had to season it myself. We had to ask the waitress to clean the table otherwise the bread plates and basket would be still sitting there the whole dinner with no space in the table for the new side dishes coming. Really “average” night for such a high end/ expensive restaurant.
