Four of us went during restaurant week. We thought it would be an interesting experience. We've talked about going for months, since it's practically a Baltimore landmark. I always thought it was in such a strange location, nothing exciting about the outside decor. It's in the bottom of an old apartment building. We walked in and you felt like you... More

I took my mother here to The Prime Rib and we were quickly sat near the bar area by very polite staff. The atmosphere is very calming and dimly lit. You could 100% see a bunch of guys in suits smoking cigars and drinking fine scotch at the bar (in theory of course, but that is the feel of this... More

Expertly handled party of six. Delicious apps and food. Try the house specialty drink - The Piney! Courses were perfectly paced. My prime rib was very good. Not as good as I remembered which was over the top but good nonetheless. Desserts were easly shared and once again great. Decor is old school and it works. Ambiance that even the... More

My husband and I came for our anniversary din er and our server Robert was the best. I had a crab cake with mashed potatoes. My Husband had a roast. The meat was so tender you didn't even need a knife. The atmosphere was very nice. We will definitely come back.

If you were to look up "Fine Dining" in the dictionary all that would be necessary to fill the definition would be a picture of this restaraunt. Wonderful and attentive service. Perfectly cooked steak. Mouth watering salad.

When comes to Steakhouse food, atmosphere and service, it doesn't get any better than this. Truly unique experience. The Baltimore’s best.

I had not been to the Prime Rib in a few years but we decided to treat ourselves after attending a concert at the Meyerhoff. It was top notch as usual. Started with the hearts of iceberg, had the signature cut prime rib with au gratin potatoes and crème brulee for dessert.

We were in Baltimore for a doctors appointment and my husband took me to The Prime Rib. The crab cakes and prime rib were excellent. The service was wonderful and Bill our server was so nice. He brought us a slice of delicious chocolate mousse pie for our belated anniversary.

Celebrated my son's 25th birthday here. The Prime rib which was slow cooked for six hours was a perfectly done medium rare. My wife had the crab cakes and was not disappointed. It is a little pricey but it is five star restaurant. Vegetables, salads and potatoes are all ala- carte but they are good portions and large enough to... More
