I chose this restaurant for the menu here on Trip Advisor based on the seafood selections and prices and nearness to my hotel. The facility is nice enough... clean with an eclectic correction of wooden kitsch. No real style to it, but not offensive. "Upscale Family Restaurant" might describe it. The menu presented didn't fully match what is hetre online...... More

Carolina Prime is near our site in Charlotte - we have now added this to our list of "go-to" places! The lunch specials were pretty tasty and Alicia, our waitress, was very attentive to our needs.

My wife and I had the opportunity to eat at this restaurant before Christmas. Was in town and staying at a hotel not far from this location. Not familiar with the area, we relied on some TripAdvisor reviews of this location. Note that it comes highly recommended. We expected a casual dining steak place and that is what it appears....

We had dinner here one night and returned for breakfast and dinner the next day! Oysters Rockafeller were delicious! Loved the grilled shrimp and the salmon pita! Breakfast special was 4.95 for 2 eggs, meat, potatoes, and bread! Delicious! Waitstaff remembered us from the day before and gave us special treatment! loved it!

We were in town for a NFL game. We did not know much about the area so we asked the front desk attendant of the hotel where to eat. She suggested a steakhouse across the street. Wow! My meal was great!! I ordered the 'Penne V' because I love pasta. It did not disappoint!! I had a large amount that... More

We have been coming here for the last 10+ years for our annual Christmas dinner and gift exchange. We always have a great time and the wait staff is wonderful. They do put up with a lot of noise from approx. 20 of us. The food is good, not great. It hasn't improved or gotten worse in the 10+ years.... More

This TripAdvisor sites shows the Carolina Prime Steakhouse opens at 11:00 AM. That is no longer accurate. My wife and I left our Best Western Motel and noticed that Carolina Prime Steakhouse was across the street. The sign said "Now open for breakfast," so we went in. We learned that breakfast was served 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM. We'd arrived... More

Sometimes when you travel, you hope to find a place with good food and the wait staff that lets you know what they have in away that you want to hear more. Cindy was just such a person at the bar. My wife and I shared a Tips and Tails Beef dish with green peppers and onions. So we ate... More

If you're at the Charlotte airport and need a good place close for a quick client meeting, these guys hit the mark. Good food, reasonable prices, not a sports bar & not Ruth's Chris, great service and not busy during the mid-afternoon. We met in the back room with folks from the UK who were passing through and it went... More

Thank you so much for the excellent review! We are indeed very close to the airport and can always accommodate large parties in the mid-afternoon since it tends to be the down time between lunch and dinner. Again, thank you for the great review and we look forward to seeing you next time you're in the area! More
