“5 star in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Everything was perfect about this restaurant. The food is the best, the service was wonderful and the presentation top-notch. The price is on the extreme high side, but they deliver value for the price they ask. I especially liked the tenderloin I had there. The sauce made it perfect. I will go there again just to get that, when we are in Key West.

“Good place, but high price to value ratio.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012 via mobile

The food was exceptional, so if you want the very best meal, then it is worth a trip. The prices are pretty steep, though. The night we were there the service was okay, but not great. The largest problem with this restaurant was the waiting in front of it for it to open. The pool right next to it was full of young drunks screaming and yelling and playing the music that sounds like electronic fart sounds. The restroom in the plaza outside the restroom the restaurant was so trashed from the drinking party that I was appalled. I don't know if that's normal, but I don't recommend spending any time outside of th restaurant.

“The Best Steaks On The Island!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

My wife and I have eaten here 5 times and we now know if we want a steak this is the place to get it. I have had the Filet, Strip, Bone In Ribeye and The Veal Chop. Every steak I have ordered here has been cooked exactly as I ordered. We met the owner(Dale) several years ago on New Year's Eve and after talking with him a few minutes you can understand why there is no choice meat in the place. Only Prime! The bone in ribeye is my go to here. It is a 24 ounce, flavorful, meaty and juicy cut of prime beef. My wife would be happy if she just got a large plate of the truffled maccaroni and smoked gouda. This dish tries to steal the headlines. Wonderful Wine List as well. The atmosphere is very laid back and oozes Old Key West Style. We enjoy this place so much this was where we chose to eat on our wedding night. They sat us in the private to right as you walk in and we felt like we had the restaurant to ourselves. The wait staff is also the best on the Island! Kudos to you Prime!

We ate at the Prime Steakhouse last week and everything was great. Our server was friendly and attentive and the NY strip steak that I had was cooked perfect and tasted great.

“WOW!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

I travel all over the country for work. I have eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the country. I come to Key West 3-5 times a year and have eaten all over the island. Prime hands down is one of the best. I do not give restaurant reviews until I eat their at least twice. Anyone can have a good or bad day; well theirs has always been great. There steaks are the best on the island and one of the best I have ever had, and the service was out of this world. I can’t say enough about this place.
