I go into SB Prime usually once a week - either for lunch or for after dinner drinks. I go because I always feel welcomed and at home. Colleen behind the bar always makes her guests feel welcome and invited to stay for as long as they'd like. After dinner, it's really a great place to go for good conversation,... More

I have been a regular to downtown Burlington for almost two decades. Prime has been a nice addition to the area. If personal service is your thing then Colleen behind the bar is the cats meow.a tip of the cap to Sydney in the kitchen

The bartender Colleen was fantastic and provided an excellent level of service. I ordered the cheese board and it was amazing. The server josh was really friendly and personable and I would absolutely return, and I plan to bring the rest of my family with me as well to share the experience.

If you're looking for some decent appetizers (think lobster rolls), good music on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings then visiting Prime during happy hour between 4 and 6 pm is a great way to start out the evening. However, the place goes up quite a few notches when Colleen looks after you. Professional, pleasant and just darn fun best describes... More

We are known as regulars and would like to thank all the staff especially Colleen and Dawn and Daryl who treat us like gold. A very special mention to the chef and kitchen for making me so special to cook Marilyn's Maccaroni and Cheese!

Our Canada Day dining experience was aided by excellent front (Colleen) and back-end service, which helped to outweigh OK food. Suggest adding draft craft beer options to bar service

We were warmly greeted as we entered by Colleen who was the bartender for the night. From 4-6 there is a half price appetizer menu and drink specials. We had the tuna tartare, which was very tasty. Next we had the oysters Rockefeller. If you like salty bacon you would enjoy this. I found it unappetizing. The oysters were hard... More

My wife and I booked a table for two at 7:15pm, Saturday June 14th. We were greeted nicely by our server Colleen, and we ordered our drinks, and an appetizer (dry ribs), and our entrees. I ordered the 12oz. Strip loin, rare, and my wife had the burger. We were served our entrees by Colleen. I cut into my steak,... More

Small venue....have larger back dining room but was empty so we ate in bar area. Luncheon steak was good not great. My wife had the lobster roll and liked it a lot. My daughter had Crab cakes that were dry and fell apart upon touching with fork. This place could be better but is still above average. With a better... More

Thanks for the honest feedback both good and bad, I appreciate it. Our young, twenty-somethings, Back of House team aspires to be great (not just good) and it is feedback such as yours that allows me to address where they need to improve and push them towards achieving their (and my) culinary goals.

I recently went to SB hearing they had good steaks and I am very glad I did! Since I was dining alone I was looking for a place with a nice lounge area and SB Prime did not disappoint. I was greeted by a very friendly person at the entrance and when hearing I was alone, he recommended a seat... More
