I was at the tail end of a 5 day birthday celebration and chose The Prime Rib as the capstone. While it is known for its exceptional steaks, it also does an incredible job with seafood. My Chilean Sea Bass was the best I’ve tasted - - ever!

The character and charm of this restaurant can not be under stated. I return again and again for their steak. Our favorite server is personally requested when making reservations. Side dishes and desserts are amazing! It is not a restaurant, but an experience!

The Prime Rib was and is the very best steak house. I have been eating there for 50 years and I have never been disappointed. Our server, Bobby Ellison is a true professional as is Mark and John behind the bar.

Food extremely bland and overpriced. Environment was very dark- no windows. Serving sizes were normal/expected.
Cocktails were decent.

If you want a flavorful meal for 1/3 the cost - go elsewhere.

Seated and attended to promptly. Ordered the chopped Sirloin and it was cooked to my preference. The house salad and house dressing were delicious. My boyfriend ordered the NY Strip with mashed potatoes and it said it was delicious. Also, our waiter was awesome (I believe he was from Australia--didn't get his name but wanted readers to know who he was just in case you have the pleasure of having him as your server). He was a delight and it was super cool of him to bring out a chocolate mouse with creme and whip cream for my boyfriend--it was his birthday. That was much appreciated.

Top notch food and service in a wonderful atmosphere. Not inexpensive, but worth the splurge and a cut above the experience you get at the other "chain" steakhouses in town (yes, I know the Prime Rib has multiple locations, but it's not a chain like Morton's, Flemings, Ruth's Chris, etc.). Prime rib (the meat) is excellent and has disappeared from the menu in most other steakhouses...they do it right here.

The food was delicious, the service was exceptional, we did not have to wait for any refills, the atmosphere was friendly as we had four tables of birthday couples and we enjoyed meeting the other couples celebrating their spouses birthdays. Totally enjoyable and will not wait for another birthday to return. The veal was perfect and the Crab Imperial was to die for!!

The server spilled hot water down my wife’s back and was barely apologetic. We were seated next to a bus tray that was full of dirty dishes almost the entire evening. Not the way I thought we would be celebrating my child’s senior college recital after party with 8 of us.

We have been coming to this Prime Rib for over 40 years and were here for a special occasion birthday. We miss the days when it was a dress up venue with the big leather menus. That being said, the newer style is more fitting these days. We had a fantastic table and our waiter was warm and funny - not the officious of olden times. The wine list remains excellent and a fair price. My steak , both last year and this, were no better than I can get up here in NJ at a small local restaurant. But, your steaks are always better (and your service) than Ruth Chris's or The Palm's. I wanted to give it a 4.5, but that is not an option. This is a consistently good steak and seafood restaurant choice. We are so glad the old black and red style remains. And it was kind to provide the excellent free dessert to the birthday celebrant. Thank you.

The Prome Rib has been our family’s go to for celebrations for years...I have to say the past couple of times we have gone the food has been good- but not great for the price- and the service has been so-so (and the waiter was down right grumpy). Sad to say- I’m not sure if we will be back.

The Prime Rib is our go to special occasion
Restaurant. The food is always exceptional and portions equal the price. My only recommendation is to ask for the side room. Between the piano player who is very good, and the close proximity of the tables in main dining room, it makes it difficult to have a conversation. Otherwise a wonderful evening.

Everything about the Prime Rib is first class, particularly the service. The ambiance was great and the food delicious BUT, if you are a cook, you can make a rib roast with a bone for 1/2 the price!!!

Excellent service and quality. Just a comment on their desserts. Good quality, but way overpriced for what you get. $12 for 2 scoops of ice cream and $11 for a rather small piece of chocolate mousse cake.

Even though the fact we were celebrating a birthday was noted on the reservation,nothing was said until after we had desert and were paying the bill. The manager came over, wished a happy birthday to the person celebrating , apologize and offered us a piece of chocolate mousse pie which we declined since we already had desert. It would have been nice if he had comped the desert we had already eaten.

Probably fine dining rather than mid range and the prices to match, but the quality certainly justifies the price. Great for business meetings and romantic meals but definitely a more formal dining experience
