Last night was our first visit to Prime and very likely our last. Décor is interesting....old brick walls, kind of strange artwork, large video screens playing old rock concerts, straight-back wooden seat chairs, tables close together, linen tablecloths and napkins....simply not certain what they want to be other than local eclectic. This said it is a steakhouse. Started with drinks.... More

I have eaten here many times and it has been my go to place for business dinners in Aiken; however, I am not sure I would go back. The service was great as usual and the owner coming over to say hello was lovely. However, the best service in the world cannot make up for poorly cooked food. Three in... More

I attended a dinner for business at the Prime Steakhouse. We were greeted right away and shown to our seats. The wait staff came over very quickly and took our drink order. They continued to give us great service throughout the dinner. I ordered the fillet mignon. unfortunately it was burned on the outside. I wasn't a big fan of... More

Everything is delicious here and you get ample servings. The owner is very friendly. The meals are a bit pricey but I don't mind because it's enough for two meals for me. Best steak in town.

If you love good beef, this is the place to dine in Aiken. My golf group has eaten at Prime each time we visit Aiken and we have never left hungry. The steaks are tender, correctly aged and perfectly prepared. Salad comes "family style" and the bread is hot and fresh. A very good bar and wine list round out... More

Ate here and would never go back. The salad is just like Olive Garden, iceburg lettuce, over dressed, huge chunks and it comes in a large family style bowl -- low budget and nothing about that screams chef quality salad. I had the filet; It was overcooked, dry, tasteless and all of the food was cold except for an onion... More

We were not able to eat at this restaurant as the owner refused to get us a table. In for Masters week and I called and spoke with Randy several times at 2 months and 2 weeks in advance of our Masters week visit. My contacts in Aiken advised me that we could encourage Randy to save us a spot... More

Please do not support this business. We were in town for the Masters, and wanted to celebrate our last night of an awesome trip with a nice meal, however that did not happen. We ordered a steak medium, and it came out completely rare. Not being the people to complain, we were hemming and hawing over whether to say something... More
