Prime is an excellent steakhouse. The steak was cooked perfectly and had a great flavor. My appetizer of Seared Tuna was outstanding. The others in my party also agreed on the high quality of the food. The service was very good, but for a steakhouse...More

This is one of the best places to dine in Aiken . You will have to be a bit of a beef cut knowledgeable so you can get your choice of beef right. Service is very good. The place is a bit claustrophobic since space...More

We are so fortunate to have a genuine steakhouse in Aiken. One bite of their steak just reminds you of what a steak should taste like. Only 2% of all beef is prime, and believe me, there's a difference! In addition, there is wonderful, attentive...More

Excellent wine list and knowledge staff. Unfortunately the food is overpriced and mediocre at best. We went with 3 other couples who all thought the food was very over priced, but if you like really good wine they do have some great ones!

The owner met me at the door and was very friendly throughout my visit. The server was excellent too, both efficient and friendly and as a bonus from South Florida. Conversation with her was fun. I started with a house salad which was cold and...More

Whenever we want a nice steak in Aiken, we head to the Prime Steakhouse. The staff is always helpful and the food is excellent. I normally get the 8 oz. filet. It is always properly cooked to my taste and very flavorful. My wife just...More

My steak was overcooked and dry. My husband's veal was OK but nothing special. We were very disappointed since we've eaten here several times before. One other disappointing factor was the noise level. All patrons were seated together on one side of the restaurant even...More
