    I have been in the hospitality business for 30 some years. A party of four of us went to Southern Prime for a birthday dinner. We have been to many of the local restaurants and it seems we have always found them wanting in the quality of food or service. SP was a breath of fresh air. I do not mind paying premium prices for premium food and service, I'll do it every day no problem. The steaks were done to a tee I even ordered 2 of them MR+ not M. The lobster was tender and served hot. The Risotto was just right with a wonderful flavor and the ribeye was to die for. The service was impeccable not overly mothered nor wanting. All in my party agreed whole heartily, as we eat out together often. We will be back! James Lovell

    Visit here was not our first. Our server, Cristy, was excellent; very attentive and helpful. We had the lamb chops and the filet. Both were excellent in temperature, taste and presentation. Had the berries and cream (a fave) for dessert. Thanks for a great time!

    We had a good experience, its a good restaurant in Southern Pines. The service is excellent. The food is good. The seafood we had was excellent. The steaks were good but absolutely need more seasoning, salt and pepper at least. We will go back. Very nice atmosphere. The drinks were excellent. Dont be in a hurry, it’s old school, take your time type place.

    First time dining at Southern Prime Steakhouse. Far above our expectations. Van & Ashley (in-training) were absolutely informative, professional & on top of their game. Service was a 10....SPS rivals top restaurants we visited in much larger cities. Food was excellent. If you can reserve a table in the wine room, do it. Surroundings were absolutely top notch.

    We had a reservation for 8:15; restaurant adjusted Us to 7:45 per our request. Evening started out traumatic because We are African American and hostess seated Us in the back near the kitchen… I refused to sit there and we were placed in the “ Large parties room” which was loud/boisterous! I was later told about an intimate seating that would have been more appropriate for Our Date night. The Highlight of the evening was our server Kourtney! She redeemed what could have been a highly awkward insulting night! Southern Steakhouse needs an understanding that IF WE chose that restaurant… WE CAN afford it… AND I expect EQUAL top-drawer seating/service because My Money is green AND discriminating AS WELL!!! -DC/Kim David

    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.

    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!

    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!
