Convenient and Efficient

Coming from the Charlotte airport at dinner time, Carolina Prime is a perfect spot just 12 minutes away. Following the Billy Graham Parkway south, it's located soon after the I-77 overpass on the left. The dining area is spacious and the wait staff friendly and prompt.

We ate here in June 2015 on the recommendation of our hotel, The Clarion. The restaurant was empty, yet still seemed to take about 10 minutes to seat us. The hostess was not at her station when we walked in, at about 8 pm. Our server was pleasant, and checked with us regularly. We both ordered salads, and sides, with... More

Went here for New Year's Eve dinner as it was near our hotel. We went in early evening to beat any crowds so it was fairly quiet. The staff was very friendly. We both ordered the T-bone steak and when it arrived we were a bit concerned because it was fairly thin. However, it was cooked perfectly and had such... More

Carolina prime was recommended by our hotel. We expected a steakhouse with the name prime to serve prime beef. It did not serve prime beef and had only one item on the menu that was USDA choice. I ordered that steak medium rare and it came back tasteless and well done. Most items on the menu were burgers. My wife... More

My wife and I discovered Carolina Prime Steakhouse in 2014 during a Thanksgiving visit to my parents, niece, and sister. It is directly across Woodlawn Road from our Best Western Motel. The restaurant is divided into a bar and a dining room. The dining room is up three stairs from the entrance. There was a steak house atmosphere with leather... More

Went there around 4 times while I visited NC. The Pulled Beef is the best I have ever had. Steak is great, and service is top.

We found this restaurant by accident and GPS default after walking around downtown for a couple of hours (and finding everything closed: Charlotte is closed on Mondays.) Great American traditional food. The filet was spoon tender, perfectly prepared and as flavorful a steak as any I had in Texas. My son had the rib eye and said the same, my... More
