Description: The Prime Rib Restaurant & Wine Cellar offers a fine but casual dining experience to patrons in Gillette, Wyoming, and surrounding areas. Founded in 1983 by Ed & Phyllis Vanscoy, The Prime Rib is currently owned and operated by Ken Barkey. Ken was the manager since 1983 and bought the restaurant from Ed & Phyllis in 1991. After an extensive renovation in 2008 that added a state of the art 10,000 bottle wine cellar and private meeting & dining space the property became The Prime Rib Restaurant & Wine Cellar. We have a large comprehensive menu that provides guests with something from “old school” Chicken Fried Steak to Signature aged steaks, chicken dishes, pastas, fresh fish and our specialty, the Slow Roasted tasty and tender Prime Rib as well as an extensive dessert list. As an upscale yet casual restaurant, The Prime Rib provides top-quality wines from all over the world. Bottles are kept in a state-of-the-art, glass-enclosed wine cellar located in the center of the 10,000 square-foot restaurant. There is a great variety of wines starting at under $20 per bottle. Wines are also available “to go” at retail prices. Most of all we hang our hat on our people. We take pride that many of our staff has been here 10 plus years with many at over 20 years of service. We value our staff as our greatest asset because they take care of our customers and they do it well. Our belief in the saying that: “good food does not survive bad service” is a staple in our philosophy that has enabled us to thrive in all economies since 1983. Please join us and let us serve you. Cheers! Ken Barkey & Wyoming’s Best Staff

This is a really nice restaurant. It was the kind of place that could probably make it anywhere. There is a certain attention to detail with the food and a good wait staff that really makes it special. We got lucky with this restaurant as the hour was late and we were running out of places to go. The wine list is really amazing and the waitress knew the wines on the list. The salads were very good and while meat is the main thing, it is after all Wyoming, the variety of other dishes was good. We would definitely go back there.

This restraunt is very classy. If you love wine the menu is extensive. Far above what you might ecpect. The selection of good food is wide but the name implies good prime, and you'll find it there. The prices are reasonable for the service and ambiance. The layout of the tables affords some privacy to talk, the noise level is low and comfortable. I love this place. I have visited several times and every time the quality of food and service is consistantly high. Go! Its a special treat in this boom town.

Being from the area, there isn't anything in Gillette this good, or even close. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
