This has long been a favorite of ours, our "go to" for special occasions. The food and service have always been excellent and well worth the high prices. We love the fact that the Sandhills has a high class steakhouse that compares with those from large cities. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case. I hope that the drop in qualit ... read more

We haven't been out to a restaurant in months but felt comfortable going to Southern Prime. It's large and the seating is well-spaced. The service, as always, was excellent as was the food!

I went to Southern Prime twice ...
I went to Southern Prime twice during a week-long trip.  It was excellent both times.  The second time was incredible because I ordered the lobster tail, and they surprised me with TWO lobster tails!  They said they felt bad because the first one was less than the ten ounces on the menu, so they decided to just give me two.  Lol.  Wh ... read more

It was alright, for as expensive as it was I hoped the service would be better. The food was good however our steaks came out way over cooked. Someone who wasn’t our server dropped them off and by the time we cut into them he was gone. It then took another 10-15 minutes for our server to come back to the table to ask how everything w ... read more

We love SP and have made it a tradition for our anniversary. The only small thing that was not as great as usual... they didn’t have our reservation... some glitch maybe?

We were recommended by friends to Southern Prime as we were looking for a great place to celebrate our 33rd anniversary. The food was very good.

Excellent food and excellent service!!! I had a special, the Sea Bass, and my wife had the Scottish Salmon. The Sea Bass was one of the best pieces of fish I've ever eaten and my wife says hers was "A ten!" Even the salads (wedge and house) were outstanding. We topped it off with a nice bottle of red wine (Cabernet) and a chocolate l ... read more

My wife and I have eaten at SP several times and this visit was one of the best. It was our 5th wedding anniversary and the staff set a special table, wished us a happy anniversary at every opportunity, and took our picture with a wonderful chocolate lava cake....All this may seem rather ordinary, except, we never asked them to do a ... read more

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!
jerryr via - Mar 1, 2020
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.

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.

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.
