“Solid dinner at a local Steakhouse....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2011

Celebrated my wedding anniversary with kids in tow at this quaint Burlingame restaurant as we decided last minute to go out. Didn't have reservations but was able to be seated within 15 minutes and place filled up pretty quickly thereafter. Choices are pretty limited--dry aged steak, prime rib, mushrooms for vegetarians, and seasonal fish (salmon was offered the night we were there) with salad and choice of two sides.
The exterior of the restaurant looks like you're about to enter a pub with the interior resembling something from the 70s---don't get me wrong--this place has a cool comfy vibe about it but it can get a bit noisy.
I ordered the select cut of the dry aged steak and substituted one of the sides for the sauteed spinach instead of the creamed spinach. Garlic mashed potatoes were alright. They'll automatically default you to the iceberg salad, but you can opt for different greens instead.
Kids meals are only offered for the prime rib meals at about $12. Entrees including sides run about $35 pp excluding drinks.
I like this place because you don't have to drive all the way to the City where you'd spend most of your time looking for parking. This isn't the best steakhouse ever, but their service and food are reasonable for the prices and I'd come back again. Can't beat the convenience of the location as well.

For the best steakhouse ever, on very special occassions, do splurge at Bob's Steak and Chophouse at the SF Financial District. Worth every penny but I just can't afford to eat there too often!

“the best prime rib.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2011

we drove in from lake tahoe in a snowstorm to sfo and was looking for a place to eat. the kids wanted benihana, so we went there and the wait was over 2 hours. we, a party of 7, decided to drive around the burlingame area and look for a place to eat. we were going to a japanese place and saw broadway prime across the street. the kids love steak and i love prime rib. the place was packed so we asked if we could get in. the host, who turned out to be the owner, told us it would be 45 minutes so we went to the bar. the host came by 20 minutes later and got us a table. it was the best prime rib and steak we ever ate, and the service was above and beyond what we expected. my kids loved everything about the restaurant and the special attention they got from the owner, Hong. we can't wait to recommend this place to all our friends. aloha

“Mediocre”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2010

Tried the prime rib- nothing to write home about. The salad is included in the meal but it's over dressed and too large. The au jus just drowned everything else on the plate including the spinach which had chewy stems. The restaurant is long and dark with the tables quite close together. I have never been to The House of Prime Rib but it must be better than this. The quality went downhill further once the owner opened another restaurant in San Mateo.

“Really good food; nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2009

Stumbled upon this restaurant while staying near the SF airport. If you like meat, you'll like this place. I think menu included one fish dish and a vegetarian dish too. Steaks were cooked to perfection. Would have loved to be staying in the area and dined there more than once. It was clear that this was a favorite local spot. Everyone in the restaurant seemed to know each other. Anyone coming in was stopping by at least one or two tables to say hello and introduce their friends. Very friendly atmosphere.
