We were with large group of 20 so we were in party room. They accommodated large group well. Salad bar was tasty and nice variety. I ordered chicken alfredo and it was delicious. Hubby had prime rib sandwich which was plenty of food and delicious.

Salad bar is very fresh and homemade pasta salads. The prime rib sandwich was amazing! Very large slice of melt in your mouth prime rib. The hoagie bun was very fresh as well. Wish this restaurant wasn't 130 miles from my house!

First, they were out of prime rib when we went - kind of like finding McDonald's out of hamburgers. My entire meal was entirely mediocre , though the service was pleasant enough. Too expensive for the quality of food, I think.

I have always been quite happy with the preparation, price, selection, and service. Their salad bar is fabulous. Steaks are done extremely well, the pastas also are very nicely done up. I especially enjoy the chicken skillet. The veggies are dine but crisp. Delicious!

We were in the area visiting and we drove down to The Prime Rib. We got there just after it opened and were taken straight to a table. When we left, there were approx. 12 - 15 people waiting for seating. The cuts of Prime...More
