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

The food at the DC location and this Baltimore location is excellent! Nonetheless, the Baltimore location isn't as favorable but that's not taking away from the fantastic food. I would absolutely visit this establishment again.

The namesake entree - prime ribs - was the best I've ever had. Everything on the menu was great. Service was remarkable. Our server, Aaron, was the quintessential waiter.

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
