Best steak house in Baltimore. Be sure to try the horseradish. Order the prime rib or any other steak. You will not be disappointed.

Thank you for participating in Restaurant Week. We really appreciated your changing our table to a quieter table on the porch. Brian, our server, was attentive and so nice. He tended to our every need. We started with their famous Potato Skins Basket, always a crowd pleaser. Then, we all enjoyed the Caesar salads. They were crisp and fresh with... More

Each year we visit The Prime Rib for dinner. We've been doing so for many years. Our most recent visit proved as memorable as those from past years. Bob, our veteran waiter, was excellent. A real pro with a good sense of humor, he was efficient and courteous. Our dinner, as always, was wonderful. I began with the roasted tomato... More

For all of the readers who have been to this downtown location know the scene. Romantic, capital "R". Valet parking, tuxedo waiters, chic black furniture, leopard rugs, great piano music, etc. Menu is great and the seafood is as good as the Prime steaks. 4 for dinner with wine and the total was expected at $600.00. Greenburg potatoe skins, fabulous,... More

Although pricey, why not go for the wonderful food and awesome service. This place does not disappoint! They probably have the largest and tastiest oysters consistently than any other place I have ever eaten. From their drinks to their food to the ambiance and service - don't forget the piano player - just wonderful. They will split anything you want... More

There are many good restaurants in Baltimore but the Prime Rib feels like the place to go when you want to get dressed up. Upon entering the restaurant you are made to feel special by the host. Come early and have a drink at the bar while listening to live piano music. The servers are professional and friendly. The food... More
