Food and service was outstanding. Best steak we have ever had!!
TinaE via - Mar 14, 2020
The steaks were cooked to perfection and were tender and delicious. Best meal in Pinehurst. Great staff.
OpenTable Diner via - Mar 9, 2020
This is one of the best steakhouses in the Sandhills of NC. However, as it is one of the few steakhouses in the tony Pinehurst area, I feel their pricing is a bit aggressive. Service in the wine cellar area is always a real treat (we're always greeted immediately by the General Manager) and the ambiance perfect for a friendly family ... read more

I ordered the exact dinner, :Land and Sea: as I always do when I show up at the Prime Steakhouse for a special occasion. This time the filet was not as before, but I ate half of it anyway. Just remember that Quality Control is extremely important!

This does really feel and look like a nice place however the price you pay isn't equivalent to the food you get. Don't get me wrong the food isn't bad but you do leave feeling like you overpaid. You can have a very nice time there but the bang for buck equation feels a little off.

The food as always, was fabulous. Service was disappointing. Our table of four ordered three salads. I asked for the Chop Salad minus bacon. My salad came with bacon, the other two had no dressing.

Nice little place in southern pines. Enjoyable for a special meal. It was sweet of them to add the extra touch to dessert since it was our anniversary. Also, got sat in an area to feel a little more special. Obviously, get a steak, it's what they are known for and they're very tasty. Service overall was good too.
Airca Cox via - Feb 19, 2020
In town for a funeral service and happened upon this restaurant. Truly enjoyed our evening. Very extensive wine list with a price point for everyone. My husband had filet and lobster tail, he said it was good. I had filet which was a tab undercooked but flavorful and tender. Service was excellent. We plan dine here again when we are ... read more

My husband made reservations about a month in advance for Valentine’s Day. Greeters welcomed us and escorted us to our table promptly.

OpenTable Diner via - Jan 11, 2020
As long as I have been coming to Southern Prime the service is always exceptionally slow. And because your server is not the person delivering the food to the table if you need anything extra you have to wait additional time to get the complete service. The back room is too bright affecting the ambience. My husband received a slic ... read more

I may give them a second chance but the prime rib I ordered was as tough as leather. Even their big steak knife had trouble cutting it. I couldn’t chew it or swallow it for fear of choking.

Best steakhouse in the pines. Hands down. If you want the real classic steakhouse experience this is the place. If you want A1 steak sauce and your steak well done go somewhere else and save yourself and the fine people of this establishment the trouble.
