I recently visited prime 16... A friend said they had great food, which they did. However I would say the level of disorganization and lack of customer service was less than satisfying. We received waters that were not even full, sone had ice some did not... I couldn't help but wonder if they came from another table. The waitress had... More

In search of the best burger we tried prime 16... Definitely a very good burger and great beer selection .. I had the smashbuger which was perfectly cooked as I like it - medium rare ... It was very good ... Definitely a great burger and I would return to try some of their other burgers

You haven't been yet? Why are you waiting? This is a place where great food meets great beer. I love beers, and enjoy trying new styles... Prime 16 delivers. The food is great too, some unique burger creations. Try the bacon burger, never lets me down.

The burgers were good but our wait person forgot one of our beers and we finally got it when the burgers arrived but only after asking. French fries are good too. Also, they were out of several beers that we had asked for. They should probably update their menu. The place is also very noisy so be prepared.

I've been here several times with friends. Their happy hour is a pretty good deal too! I usually go for the yukon gold potoato pizza, which has never disappointed me and I end up eating it as a meal not as an app cause it's big enough for 1 person. Love their Crispin cider they usually have on tap!. My... More

Was not our first choice, "BAR" was packed. Not a disappoitment but your typical slightly upscale pub. I think too many beers to pick from with no idea what anyof them were. Food was ok, decent presentation. So many places to eat withen a couple blocks probably won't go back.

My husband and I just got back from a vacation in VT where we visited local breweries and restaurants with strong craft beer selections. We were disappointed in leaving VT because we had yet to find any restaurants in CT that could come close to comparing. Luckily, we found Prime 16. We were going to a concert at the Shubert... More

Went here last night with the wife before the Chris Cornell concert at the Shubert! The restaurant was crowded, but not full, so no wait. We had a couple of the seasonal beers (Maine stout was outstanding - one of the best I've ever had). Had wings for an appetizer, cooked perfectly and bathed in a delicious honey BBQ glaze.... More
