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.

My wife and I were passing through Charlotte, and stayed one night in a hotel adjacent to the airport. I scanned through TripAdvisor for restaurants in our vicinity and came up with this place. I am very glad that I chose Carolina Prime. The menu is expansive, and when I found out they had a special that night on a... More

The food is awesome in this restaurant. It was much over my expectations! It was one of the best steaks I've ever had! The staff is nice, however I highly recommend to go there in the less busy hours.

I enjoyed the variety on lunch menu. The server was very nice and made sure we had everything we needed. They pile the food on your plate you will have some to take home. Food was great!! Wings excellent!

I had great food, Buffalo wings were deliciously flavoured. And for the ribs, they were fabulous. Great recommendation from the reception of the new Holiday Inn express.

On our way to a comedy show and since we were stuck in traffic for 2 hours didn't have time to go to our normal restaurant. This was close to our hotel and figured we would try it. My boyfriend had the steak and I had the prime rib special. Each came with 2 sides. It came with warm bread... More
