One of the best steakhouses anywhere. The prime rib is terriffic and all the other steaks we have tried were excellent. Try the Prime Rib potato skins. All side dishes are Ala carte but they are enough for two to share. Make reservations and ask for the piano room if you want music with your dinner. There is a dress... More

This restaurant has locations in Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia - I have eaten in all three a number of times! If you want an upscale, upper price fine dining experience of steak, prime rib or other such dishes this is the place. Make a reservation!

Standing at the bar with an 8:30 reservation. It's now 9:16 and they can't seat us. Regular customer.

The Prime Rib is the last word in upscale dining! Very non-descript from the outside, almost like an exclusive supper club. Inside found a full house complete with immaculately attired staff and piano music! Wonderful meat and fish entrees prepared to perfection. Jacket required on Saturday night just added to the overall elegance. Highly recommend!

Two couples observing two birthdays. Prime Rib is a traditional place for celebrations. Our waiter was apparently having a bad night. He consistently screwed up our orders, was very slow and even conked one of the ladies in our party in the back of her head. The food was OK but not up to their usual standards. For a $200+... More

First time we were there it was spot on excellent. We both had the prime rib and it was made to absolute perfection.The following year we returned and ordered the same, but the prime ribs were very fatty. A lot of waste for a very pricy piece of meat. First time was a definite 5. Second time was very disappointing.... More

Flew in from Toronto to dine here with family and the food was incredible. Had the Chilean sea bass with imperial crab which was mouth watering and the class casino were fabulous. Simply incredible food with amazing service..... can't wait for my next visit to Baltimore to dine here again.

Best steak house in Baltimore for my money also probably the most expensive. The prime rib was excellent as were my wife's crab cakes. Clams casino were simple and good but also very skimpy for the price,sauteed mushrooms also very good. Desserts are not their speciality and probably should have been skipped or maybe I had just over eaten by... More

Located right in the Live Casino. Food was Fantastic! But expect to pay for what you order. Prime Rib was cooked to perfection. Service was outstanding, entries were served in a timely manner. I will defiantly return.

I was lucky enough to score a table for four during restaurant week. I have been eyeing this spot for many many years; my friend used to live upstairs in the Horizon House. I always thought this place was fancy fancy, with their complementary valet and jacket requirement for men. I am also not a huge fan of chains –... More
