“Impromptu dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 March 2014

Finished the work day last night and asked my contact if he'd like to join me for dinner and did he know a decent place. After throwing out several options to me, we chose Prime .... and what a great choice it was. Excellent meat, great service and pleasant surroundings. Fairly "moderate" pricing for a "Steakhouse" experience, I would recommend Prime to any carnivore looking to satisfy a meat craving!!

“Pay Attention to The Prime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014

Yes there is a difference between a $25.00 meal and a $100 experience. The Prime Steakhouse delivered the experience with excellence. The steak and pork chops were smooth, robust, full of flavor and class. Great house wine, salad, and calamari for starters. Debbie our host made us feel welcome and as special as the entire evening. The evening ended with an Irish Coffee dating an Italian tiramisu, what a couple. We left receiving a warm good evening from the owner, and walked the Aiken downtown sidewalks content.

“A very good steakhouse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2014 via mobile

We dined at Prime for the first time while in Aiken on our annual trip there.
We had a very good experience and meal. The restaurant is very comfortable and has a good "steakhouse" look. It just felt right. Our waiter was excellent, very attentive and always available.
We shared the fried calamari starter and it was fabulous. The order was huge and although we shared it, we didn't finish it mostly so we would have some room for our mains.
Her filet and my half duck both were delicious.
The wine list was a bit over the top price wise lacking more reasonably priced options. Perhaps there was a bit of "expense account" mentality here which is typical of many steak houses that are businessmen favorites.

Best place to eat in Aiken! Upscale but relaxing atmosphere! Our first choice for dinner in this area. We drive 45 mins to have dinner at Prime.
