Terrific meal, a wonderful throwback to the days of elegant dining.

Our daughter was home for the weekend so we treated her to a birthday dinner at Prime Rib. If you've never been, the place is not much to look at from the outside, but is elegant and glitzy inside. The staff are all dressed in tuxes, so put on nicer clothes to make an upscale event out of it. On a Sunday night, the dining room was a little "senior-y." Not sure how it is Friday/Sat. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The place has a good bourbon selection. Had salads and crab cake for starters which were top notch. The Prime Rib Steak is a menu favorite. But at $69 and 28 oz, it is neither cheap nor small. The four of us split two Prime Rib Steaks and some green beans, corn, and potatoes as sides. They were amazing and there was not only enough steak, but we had ample leftovers for sandwiches and a steak caesar at home the next day. Try it.

Prime rib was very tough. I was shocked. Waiter never asked how my food was. Maybe they don’t want the answer. Very disappointed.

Always a winner, always reliable. Our excellent waiter Bob took care of us, and we had a lovely meal. Can't beat the half-price wines on Sundays!

The food was excellent, although pricy. The service was Outstanding...the best I have ever experienced. The overall experience was well worth the cost and the drive on a snowy evening. I would highly recommend the Prime Rib Steak.

Wonderful dinner to celebrate my daughter and son--law's birthdays. It was snowing outside but it was so nice and cozy in the restaurant. We loved the service and the food was outstanding. Nothing to complain about except we had to take an early reservation because it was so busy. It worked out well because of the weather. Loved it.

The service was absolutely horrible. The steak and prime rib were good, but the sides, cocktails, and apple pie desert was soooooo bad!!!

Simply sublime. The PR continues to deliver one of the most unique and compelling dining experiences in the region. Some no doubt would say it is old school, and I would not argue the point, but I would add that the Prime Rib practices an art that is largely lost in time and missing in modern culinary efforts. The components of the experience — from the live piano with classic scores, to the cozy bar scene, to the devine food (and yes, the seafood offerings are as good as the incomparable steaks)(and do start with the Greenberg potatoes), to the impeccably professional staff (shout out to Aaron, who will regale you with the latest health and stock tips), to the classic and romantic ambiance, and even the easy parking below in the building — combine to make an evening at the PR most enjoyable. It never disappoints.

Overall experience was very good......somewhat expensive. Restaurant was notified in advance that it was our 44th anniversary, but not acknowledged -----free glass of wine or dessert would have been nice.

One of our favorite places in Baltimore. Wonderful mix of fellow diners and fantastic food. Always a special place to go. There's really nowhere like it.
