Lots of better places to eat. Service was good. Asked for medium rare burger, it was well done. My wife asked for medium rare steak salad and it was well done too. We had been driving all day and just needed food. Won't go back.

I love this place. You can get a very nice breakfast for under $10 with Coffee . The eggs are cooked perfectly and no grease on the plate. The Rye Toast is also very good. I have also had a dinner meeting with the men's club and they can handle a large party very easily. There were at least 20... More

My wife and I discovered Carolina Prime Steakhouse in 2014 during a Thanksgiving visit to my parents, niece, and sister. It is directly across Woodlawn Road from our Best Western Motel. We noted a sign that the restaurant was now open for breakfast 6:00 AM to 11:00 AM. We had lunch there in 2014 and asked my parents, my siblings,... More

Better than a chain restaurant but not great. Had the NY Strip. Not the best steak I have had - grisley although cooked well. Prices are reasonable for Charlotte. I would say the restaurant is average but not great.

When travelling I occasionally want a steakhouse for a filet mignon. This was right across from the Days Inn in Charlotte and had good reviews on TripAdvisor. So I stopped in. Good food, good atmosphere, nice music and the owner even put on the Thursday Night NFL game which Charlotte actually won. :-) They even carried a local beer, Copper,... More

Based on TripAdvisor reviews thought we would try Carolina Prime. Food (3/5) - Reasonable quality and taste. Nachos and ribeye were fairly good. Service (4/5) - Best thing about the restaurant. Our server was delightful, happy and attentive! Atmosphere (2/5) - Circa 80s and a little tired.

My niece and I have birthdays June 8th and 9th respectively. Each year I pick a place and hope it's tolerable. I had been passing this place for years and never stopped. My niece was impressed by the atmosphere - nice heavy, dark wood, comfortable booths.We both ordered crab cakes, expecting them to be the usual size - small. WRONG!!... More

I passed by this place for years, as the location is not an area I would look for a great restaurant. Our niece wanted to take us to eat for my birthday, and her fiance' insisted on this restaurant. My wife and I are not really steak lovers, due mostly to price and experiencing chewy cuts in our past. The... More

As I am writing this review almost 3 weeks after dining there, the food doesn't stand out in my memory. Our steaks were good, but not memorable. What stood out in my mind was the oldies music. Enjoyed the music! Prices were reasonable ($21.95 for 12 oz ribeye with 2 sides), and service was good.

Thank Corihi
