Great food, nice decor, service let it down a bit

We had the "She Crab" soup which was superb, and then the excellent quality, generously sized, perfectly cooked filet mignon steaks. An excellent wine list at OK prices. The only weak point was our waitress, who really wasn't up to the standard of the restaurant.

We've eaten here 3 times in three separate visits. The fact that we've returned says something. This time the steak was amazing, and the pork tenderloin very good. The crab soup was like warm cream with some small crab cubes in it - awful! To be fair we weren't charged for it. One other odd thing - the restaurant room... More

The entrance to the location caused some doubts but then we realized it is actually nice area close to the sea. Cozy atmosphere, friendly staff and food is correctly prepared. But this is not really top notch steak house

We liked the table service at the bar, We had bone in ribeye, creamed spinach, burgundy mushrooms and beautiful martini! The staff was knowledgeable about the wine list and very accommodating. Then turned of the University of Kentucky ball game for us! Felt like we were back in Chicago!

Food and service was average. I had the Filet Mignon and my husband had the Hog Fish, Oscar Style which was good. We also ordered a side of Mac n' Cheese which came out burnt, it was obviously burnt and the chef and waiter still served it. The waiter would also disappear for 20 minutes at a time. Definitely better... More

My boyfriend & I wanted a nice, romantic steak dinner for our last night in Key West. ALL of the locals gave RAVE reviews of this place & they were right! When we first sat down the prices shocked us, but we split the 24 oz bone in ribeye. It was AMAZING!! Mouth-watering, tender, cooked a perfect mid-rare & more... More

My wife and daughter wanted to take me to a really great dinner for my 60th birthday, and we were going to be in Key West, so made reservations at Prime, told them about my birthday, and was told they would do "something special" and surprise me.
