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

This was my first choice but my friends chose otherwise. We ended up back here because choice 1 was waaay crowded. I am glad. This place was much quieter and we had more room. I had my doubts for a little while but they went away. Service was very friendly and good. We ordered wings and buffalo shrimp as appetizers.... More

We visited on a Monday night with friends. Restaurant had a decent crowd around 6pm. I ordered a ribeye and it was cooked perfectly. The fried squash was very good. Everyone in our party was satisfied. The only thing I would say is the steaks are a little pricy- most over $20.

Nice atmosphere. We were seated right away but there was very few people in there and it was 6 PM on a Saturday night. So you would expect it to be more crowded. I had the grilled chicken sandwich and it was pretty good. My boyfriend had the prime rib. He said it was good but it did not look... More

We arrived around 7 PM and were seated right away. Wonderful neighborhood club atmosphere. A large menu selection. The scallops were done to perfection and seasoned well. The salmon was superb and a generous portion. The salads were fresh and the bread was warmed just right. Very friendly and welcoming staff and great service.

My husband eats here often since it's near his job, but tonight we came for a quick dinner. We were sat quickly and attended to very well throughout the meal by our attentive waitress. I ordered the club sandwich (which was possibly the BEST club I've ever eaten) and my husband got the grilled chicken Caesar salad, which he really... More

Was probably a nice place once but now it is an over dressed Longhorn. Ate at the bar Salmon was fine. Nothing awful but not a top in steakhouse.
