I loved the food and service at the prime rib located in Hanover, so when it was time to take my wife and another couple out for a thank you dinner, I figured why not hit the original. Huge mistake. I was so disappointed. My wife's steak came out raw, not rare but raw, by the time anyone asked about... More

Form the moment we walked up to the door until we walked out we were cared for in five star fashion. The potato skin appetizer was unlike the typical potato skin, this is a must experience. The prime rib was phenomenal, the blue chees sauce was both different and delicious. Expensive but worth it for a special night out.

Amazing food, service and atmosphere. A terrific place for social as well as business dinners. Best crab cake in Maryland and the fish is delicious. And then, of course the namesake fish is wonderful.

Had dinner here last week with a friend and the service and food were excellent. Great selection of steaks, lamb chops and veal dishes. Also some very good seafood entrees. They are known for their Prime Rib, I did not have it but saw it on the table next to me and it was a huge portion.Ask for their Greenberg... More

Although the location of this original restaurant is a bit odd, once it the door, it is a step back in time to an era of piano bar, highballs, leather and dark wood. The service was superb. The food was amazing. It was everything we wanted it to be for our special occasion and well worth the price.

Living in NY, we KNOW steak. So we decided to see what Baltimore had to offer. While the location was not ideal and the garage entrance a bit awkward, the food was very good. The prices are what you expect from a fancy steakhouse. For 4 adults and 2 kids our bill came out to around $450 with tip so... More
