Start with the Greenberg Potato Skins and an old school Shrimp Cocktail, the highlight of the evening will be the Prime Rib. Simply the best, as are the steaks and soft shell crabs. Finish with a sundae. Valet parking. Reservations are a must.

The Prime Rib never disappoints. As requested, we were seated on the porch and it was delightful. The restaurant was busy, but not noisy. We were able to converse easily. Michael, our server, was very engaging, personable and attentive. Our party of 3 enjoyed the prime rib – perfectly seasoned and cooked to our specifications. Michael suggested we try your... More

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.
