“What a shame......”
Reviewed February 21, 2014 via mobile

Last night four of us went here for dinner after reading some great reviews, unfortunately it wasn't great!! It was freezing inside, service was average, and the food was most disappointing! I love my steak, and I ordered the 14oz Prime Rib, it was a great piece of meat and cooked very well, and had it been even remotely warm I'm sure I'd have loved it! All of our food was stone cold and bland!!

I'm sorry to read about your experience, Matthew. We're known for our Prime Rib, and I'm disappointed to hear that your food was not served to you at the correct temperature. I hope you brought this up with your server, as we're always more than happy to fix any issues you have with your meal. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you'll be able to return for a much improved experience in the future!

Take care,

“Well, What happened?”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I review things that I like and dislike. We have been to Prime Time three time since our first visit. This last one on Sunday Feb 16 about 6:30 PM for my sisters birthday was almost a total failure. JoAnn served us and did a good job as usual. The problem started with the lobster tails that the cook told us that had fallen apart. He informed us of the problem and it would be another 6 to 10 minutes before they would be done. The problem was our other meals were already cooked. So ten minutes later all meals were brought to our table. The prime rib was room temperature my chopped steak was just warm. The seafood special was far from being any good. You do not hold meals so you can prepare one that failed. Sorry guys you need to get it together really no excuse for this one....

Thanks for visiting us on your trip to Florida. I know a simple sorry doesn't make up for a less than satisfactory meal. I appreciate your business, and welcome your feedback. I'll certainly keep your comments in mind when talking with the waitstaff.

“Great service and great food!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I caught redfish and trout and brought them in to Prime Time. They cooked them for me and offered 2 sides. It was done to perfection.

“great value for money”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

This US "eatery" is very good value for money with great service and quality food. The location is somewhat unusual - tucked away in the corner of a car park but the staff are welcoming.
