“Excellent Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

Have visited this restaurant several times and it never fails to impress. Perfect steak every time. Also, the bar is one of the best in Ogunquit so definitely an easy place to go for some drinks and aps. They also have one of the largest (if not the largest) selection of drafts in OGT.

Best steak in town! Comfortable setting, nice location, wonderful staff and the perfectly cooked steak and lobster that I've had in quite some time.

“Two visits, very different”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2011

Our first visit to Prime was right after we were married in Ogunquit in 2009. It was the best steak I'd had in a long time! it was wonderfully juicy and tender, cooked to the med-rare perfection of warm red in the middle. And that's not just post-wedding glow! Service was perfect. Sides were delicious.

So, we were up there for our second anniversary. The meal was very different. Steak was so-so, sides were ok but smallish. My husband got the special "aged" steak and said it was nothing really special. I got what I'd gotten the last time and it was not nearly as tender and delicious, and wasn't as precisely cooked; it was more well done than medium rare.

I hate rating a place that's costly as "average" because that means that the value for the money was not there the second visit. The first visit, it definitely was.

“Great Food-Bad Acoustics”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

The food was very good but we sat next to a group of four that were very loud kind of ruining the romantic conversation but the food made up for it

My husband and I have been to Prime a couple times now. Our first visit with was some friends and we dined in their main dining room, which was just beautiful and the service was great. It is just a wonderful place. This past September we had gone for a weekend get-a-away and went there for dinner - we had walked the Marginal Way and were dressed casually but decided to stop for something to eat. We sat in the bar area. Prime is very clean and homey - the main dining area has a beautiful fireplace, and there are windows everywhere, so you can enjoy the scenic view of Shore Rd. while dining. We first had a drink at the bar, which I might add, the bartenders were very friendly, and then we decided to order dinner. With the help of our bartender, he steered us in the right direction. My husband and I wanted a lobster tail but, in the end, the bartender suggested ordering the whole lobster and it was definitely the right choice. It was delicious and they were nice enough to crack most of it open for me, which was less work. We were seated a small table right in the bar area, candlelit, and sat right in the window, so we had a lovely view of the outside. We were served fresh bread and this most phenomenal butter - not sure what it is but it is just delicious. We shared a caesar salad and our waiter was great and split if for us to share without our even asking. Our lobsters came with 2 sides, which were very good. We both had a drink and with dinner our bill was less than $90.00, which for 2 whole lobsters, we felt was reasonable and the lobsters were awesome. You can have dinner or appetizers, it's casual or you can enjoy a fancy night out as well - either way is acceptable. I would highly recommend Prime. We will definitely make it one of our favorite spots when visiting Ogunquit!
