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 Rib were very very good!!! It is not the best I've had, but it is... More

We've been to the Prime Rib a number of times. I almost always order the prime rib, and I'm never disappointed, it's very consistent. Their salad bar has a wide variety and is very good, always fresh. We've had several of their wait staff people and all have been very attentive.

The "Prime Rib" was recommended by business colleagues as one of the better restaurants in Spencer and it lived up to its billing. I tried the Chicken Oscar and it was fantastic! The salad bar was really good too. My only criticism is that the seating was terribly uncomfortable with old fashioned lounge chairs that are too low to the... More

I was here during Dec 2016. The place was not crowded, very nice and fast service. They have a good choice of beverages and dishes. Not all dishes shown in the menu such as soups and deserts. I had a very tasty soup (very unordinary) and desert. I would highly recommend this place.

Good food, quiet atmosphere. Corn-fed beef need I say more. We stop in every time we visit the family.

Nothing wrong with this place; good portions at an affordable price. If you like a bare-bones, iceberg lettuce salad bar, big slabs of beef in a dated setting, this is the place. Food was good, service quick and efficient - pretty easy and affordable. Décor reminded me of restaurants that back in the day had a 'disco', lots of laminated... More
