Excellent steak, great experience

We finally made it to Prime and it was worth it. We were burnt out on bar food, happy hour food and the rest of the offerings after 10 days in Key West. I have always wanted to try Prime but I knew it was expensive and worried about spending a lot of money only to be mislead. Not the... read more

My husband and I went to Prime for our anniversary dinner. The restaurant is beautiful and has a lovely view outside (dark inside though). The waitress we had was amazing! The food was excellent. You have to get the MD crabcake appetizer. The food is very expensive, but worth it! You won't be sorry!

Wanted a breakdown sea food and was looking for a great steak. This place was recommended by our boat captain. The location is poor. Very hard to find. The wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Excellent service overall. I ordered the $58 bone in ribeye. Was good but very average for the price. Maybe I was a little jaded... More

Not alot of people know about this little gem tucked away on the North side of the island near the Marina. We chose Prime to celebrate our friends' 30th wedding anniversary. We had been to Prime before but our friends never had. The menu has a good variety to satisfy any appetite, including a fresh fish selection and stone crab... More

Went for my birthday. Reservation honored on time, even though they were busy. You can sit inside or out. We sat in--good A/C, & not too cold. Cozy atmosphere. We brought a special wine for the occasion-corkage $20. I opted for escargot to start--very different interpretation- fairly good. My wife's Carpaccio was OK. Bread was excellent-warm & tasty--we ate it... More

Not at all what you would expect with the very high prices. The steaks had been waiting to be served and were cold when we got them. Very slow and incompetent service

Ordered both medium rare, mine came RAW, literally, RAW..sent it back and still not cooked medium rare. My husband ate his and mine came after he ate what he could. I didn't eat at... More

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

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.

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
