Southern Prime Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
The food was good, the wait staff was polite and catered to our needs. No real complaints but nothing outstanding or anything that sets the restaraunt apart or above from any of the other high end food establishments. We thoroughly enjoyed the asparagus & hollandaise sauce as an addition to our meal.
Ordered our drinks and got them. Ordered our dinners (would have waited longer to order but our waitress came by two times. ) There was a problem with my cocktail and our waitress corrected it. While she was at the bar, our dinner came! We sent them back and our waitress told us to let her know when we wanted our dinners in about 15 mins and we did. The dinner was excellent. The manager was helpful as well. Bottom line...just let people have a cocktail for a bit before seeking their orders.
Have eaten here many times. Attractive space w/ great art and flowers, and beautiful dark wood. Wait-staff provides great service. Meats are top notch & prep'd as ordered. Sides are fine. Burgers in the bar are very good, as are oyster-based appetizers. Wish menu was a little more diverse/ interesting, but then again, it's a steakhouse.
Broad Street cocktail is excellent! (house-made concoction of Stoli vodka and fresh pineapple) I've had these trendy marinated-pineapple martinis at other restaurants but never cared for them. However, SP's version is tops. I will order it again!
Beware of the banquettes. I've decided to request a regular table from now on, because the banquettes are just awkward, too large, and not very comfortable.
We met friends at Southern Prime for my birthday and had an amazing time. We also celebrate our wedding anniversary there every year. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great food, awesome service and a comfortable yet refined atmosphere. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening.
We have been to the Southern Prime during our golf adventures to Pine Needles and have always had a grand experience. From the first step towards the entrance when the door opens as though there was s an electric eye, however an enthusiastic young lady. The entire dining experience was a wonderful experience.
Our first experience at Southern Prime was perfect. The evening was cold and wet; the restaurant, staff, ambiance and food were welcoming and warm. Service was exceptional; food was as promised - perfect. A bottle of restaurant special wine made the overall experience complete. Yes, one can get a steak dinner elsewhere for less than what we paid, but we have no regrets about the expense of the evening based on the overall experience. Thank you Southern Prime for a special anniversary dinner with friends.
We celebrated our daughter's 16th Birthday here. She selected the restaurant last year and returned because it was so nice. The service was excellent and the food and drinks wonderful. The table was decorated and she was given a lovely cake with the plated decorated. The only minor problem was manager giving instructions regarding wine in a loud voice right behind our table. Otherwise it was a perfect evening.
The atmosphere was great. Our waitress took our drink order very quickly but then a log time passed before she took our food order. It was a Friday night which can be busy but it wasn't that busy at 8pm. Other than that she was great, the food was really good, and we'll be back again!
We've been there before but never had their Prime Rib. I had it and it was marvelous. Best I have ever had anywhere. Thick, firm and flavorful and cooked medium just like I asked for it. Clearly a superior cut of meat. My wife had the chicken and found it delicious as well. We'll be back . . . often.
In town for a conference and had the most wonderful dining experience here. The service was so gracious--friendly and attentive but not hovering. An unexpected treat was that they decanted our relatively inexpensive bottle of wine. My colleague had steak and I had a quinoa creation, both of which were delicious in their very different ways. The ambiance was wonderful. We ate in a room that has approx 25-ft ceilings and was floor to ceiling wine cabinets. Will definitely return anytime we are back in the area!
I cannot say enough about the efficient service and professional staff. My wife and I were impressed and the meal was succulent and very well prepared from the appetizer all the way through the main course. The New York Cheesecake topped it all off. We will be back again.
We have been to Sourhern Prime numerous times but were disappointed in this experience! Our table was essentially in the doirway where we got blasted with cold air everytime the door opened. We had to ask for a waiter after waiting a long time. My filet was dried out around the edges and the bread pudding was horrible! Ni service recovery was ever attempted.
My Spouse and I are foodies and love to experience local restaurants. We came here for Valentines Day prepared to spend $$$$ with the expectation that this place would out shine a Ruth's Chis. The menu was limited, the food came out really fast, and the server did not suggestively sell. We were in and out in an hour. While the inside is great, I don't know that I'd go back again. I appreciate a fine dining experience with knowledgable wait staff and this place was definitely lacking.
We love coming to Southern Prime! This time we came for Valentines Day and enjoyed the special menu. Our server was awkward. We have had amazing servers here before, and this girl was under par. She didn't try to engage us in conversation, never questioned if we had been there before, did not try to sell the food from the menu, and did not explain the special menu to us. She was silent most of the time, did not make us feel comfortable or welcome. At one point she tried to take our plates while we were still eating, even though one plate had half a steak left and the other had half the fish left. The food is always amazing at Southern Prime, but unfortunately the service left much to be desired.
This was the second Valentine's Day we'd spent at Southern Prime. We both got the lamb dish, medium, and it was FABULOUS! Cooked to the temperature we'd ordered, tender, juicy, and flavorful. This was one of the best lamb dishes I have eaten. Our waitress was fabulous, went the extra mile to take our picture, and brought me two different wines to taste. We had the berries and cream for dessert. This dinner was better than the year before. Would have been nice if they had offered a small treat like they did last year, which was a rose and some chocolate. But maybe they didn't do that this year because V-day fell on a Friday instead of Sunday. Their bread was delicious as always too. DEFINITELY go here for a special occasion!
This was our second visit to Southern Prime after a disappointing first try...in fairness, the first poor experience was based on personal reasons, not the restaurant...but it failed to live up to expectations. Service was friendly and professional but they couldn't get the steak right on a second attempt (was cooked medium well when rare was ordered). Mistakes happen, but after 30 min they still had not corrected the problem. They did comp dessert, and were extremely apologetic about the steak, but even the orders they did get right were just okay. I think I'll stick with my maxim that if you want a good steak, done right, do it yourself.
We have gone to Southern Prime Steakhouse a few times and have been pleased every time. The food and the service are excellent. The only drawback is that the food comes a bit too quickly. The restaurant is not inexpensive but you do get what you pay for. I would classify this as a more special occasion place.
My husband is going to be gone during Valentines day. I decided to take him out to dinner and make it a Valentines Day surprise. The restaurant knew why I was coming and took the extra time to put little hearts on the table to really make it special. Thank you, it was a great surprise and a great date night. The food was fabulous and the service was excellent.
We had a very enjoyable time. The Service was spot on, and the Food was cooked perfectly. Made our reservations online and everything was on time. This was our second visit to Southern Prime and we will definitely be back. Make no mistake, The experience is about you as soon as you walk in. Great Restaurant.
It was a special occasion for the eight of us, and the food and staff made it the best. Top quality steaks perfectly prepared and served. Quiet, elegant setting. Attentive and professional waiter. It was everything I had hoped for an evening all in attendance will fondly remember.
