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. We arrived, and opened the restaurant, was the only ones there for most... More

What a great place in Key West to grab an awesome steak or one of several amazing seafood dishes in Old Town right near the Historic Seaport. The side dishes, especially the mac n cheese, are fantastic and the appetizers were just as good. Great service and a place where locals go so you know it's good.

Excellent!!! One of my favorite restaurants in Key West. They serve seafood and I know it's kind of odd but this steakhouse ranks up there with the best of them. Very tender meat cooked to perfection! Service is five star and the bartender has a heavy pour! Well worth the price!

First off--this is a great find for steak; they do have sea food, we did not try, but I imagine it is great. The wine list was wonderful--we looked at Cabernets; they even had a Cardinale! The steak in term of cut were awesome--just undercooked. My husband ordered "medium," and it was so rare, I don't know how he ate... More

How I WISH I had this restaurant in SW FL! It's worth the trip to Key West to make this one of our, always, regular stops. LOVE the truffle Mac n Cheese, wedge salad and the bone in rib eye, oh me! There's always great fresh fish too. Choices, choices and always delicious! Attentive, friendly servers and a perfect spot... More

I recently had a business dinner there and was pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent. We each had different cuts of steak and they were all cooked as ordered and were extremely good. The sides were all very good especially the mac and cheese. We were not rushed and the meal was well paced. Cannot comment on dessert as we... More

The 24 ounce bone in ribeye was fantastic. Sides were delicious too. We started with a tomato salad stack. The kitchen split that for us and it was fresh and tasty. The interior is dark and soothing just like a steakhouse should be. The service was attentive. I am a local and would definitely recommend it.

Service was impeccable. Food was top notch. Interior was soft and dark, lit predominantly by candles. The steaks were heavenly and cooked perfectly to order, each with a delectable rosemary infused crust. Be sure to get the truffle mac and cheese as your side. I liked it as much as the steak. Yeah, seriously!!!
