Ate dinner here recently on recommendation of friends. This is a small restaurant in downtown Aiken - probably only about 15 tables. I liked the ambiance - bare brick walls, nice lighting, interesting art on the walls. There are about 5 flat screen TVs in there, but they are placed high enough so that you don't even have to see...

Prime is my go-to restaurant when I want to feel special and have a superior dinner. Primarily a steakhouse but there is a full menu selection to please most. It is a favorite with the permanent Aiken residents as well as the Winter Colony and the equestrian crowd. While not required ladies tend to look smartly dressed. No men in... More

My husband and I recently had another wonderful dinner experience at Prime. We dined early (reservation at 5.30pm) but enjoyed a leisurely drink before selecting our appetizers and main courses. Everything was delicious. The pace of service was excellent, we were never rushed. Our waiter was charming with just the right amount of interaction. The cost of the dinner means... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our anniversary dinner at Prime Steakhouse. Prices were higher than what we normally spend for a night out, but I don’t mind paying more for good service and excellent food. Prime Steakhouse delivered both in abundance, so I left feeling the prices weren’t that high after all. I had an excellent osso buco, which... More

Why would you call your steakhouse "Prime" if you don't serve any prime beef here??? The owner is from New York and he's a jerk! I asked my waitress, who was dumb as a rock, which cuts were prime and she had no clue what I meant. Ordered filet medium rare, got medium well and they refused to fix it!!!!... More

11 of us and all of us were very impressed. I think we got almost every appetizer on the menu and shared, salad was great, entrees were fabulous and the dessert was amazing. My favorite appetizer was the shrimp and escargot. I had the Chilean Sea Bass wirh lobster risotto and asparagus and shared the Tiramusu and Creme Brulee. Magnificent!... More

I've dined here several times, and always had great food. Service and food have been consistent for us. It's a bit pricey, in my opinion, but a great place for an "occasion." The side/starter dishes I've enjoyed included: salad for two, escargot (delicious), lobster mac and cheese, asparagus, and twice baked potatoes. For entrees, I've had the filet and salmon.... More

Four of us had dinner there. The owner, Randy, greeted us when we arrived and checked on us throughout the evening. Three of us had the bone in filet special. All three steaks were exceptional. The fish was great as well. Dinner is pricey but a salad, served family style, is included as are potatoes and onion rings. The salad... More

We had dinner here one night and it was a very good meal. My wife had the filet, which was fabulous and I had a veal and pasta special, which was also very good. The wine list is quite extensive and the service was very good. It's not cheap but it is of very good quality. It was busy; you... More

Have eaten here several times and always have great food and service. Steaks are excellent and the duck (which can be tough to get right) is always perfectly cooked. They are generally open to special requests as well. This last trip was a bit disappointed in one thing, ordered coffee after dinner and when asked for a refill received it.... More
