While the bacon wrapped filet mignon was very good, the rest of the experience wasn't great. Cheesy potato soup was barely ok. The bread served within was good. With the entree was a decent garlic mashed potato, but the brussel sprouts were terrible, and I...More

My first impression was not good. The carpet in the dining room was really messy - littered with cracker crumbs, etc. And the seats in the booth were dirty. It made for a poor first impression. The carpet sweeper was nearby but no one used...More

I met a group of colleagues at The Prime Rib for lunch. Had the Cowboy Burger with jalapeños. It didn't disappoint.

The Prime Rib Restaurant & Wine Cellar offers a fine but casual dining experience to patrons in Gillette, Wyoming, and surrounding areas. Founded in 1983 by Ed & Phyllis Vanscoy, The Prime Rib is currently owned and operated by Ken Barkey. Ken was the manager since 1983 and bought the restaurant from Ed & Phyllis in 1991. After an extensive renovation in 2008 that added a state of the art 10,000 bottle wine cellar and private meeting & dining space the property became The Prime Rib Restaurant & Wine Cellar. We have a large comprehensive menu that provides guests with something from “old school” Chicken Fried Steak to Signature aged steaks, chicken dishes, pastas, fresh fish and our specialty, the Slow Roasted tasty and tender Prime Rib as well as an extensive dessert list.
As an upscale yet casual restaurant, The Prime Rib provides top-quality wines from all over the world. Bottles are kept in a state-of-the-art, glass-enclosed wine cellar located in the center of the 10,000 square-foot restaurant. There is a great variety of wines starting at under $20 per bottle. Wines are also available “to go” at retail prices.
Most of all we hang our hat on our people. We take pride that many of our staff has been here 10 plus years with many at over 20 years of service. We value our staff as our greatest asset because they take care of our customers and they do it well. Our belief in the saying that: “good food does not survive bad service” is a staple in our philosophy that has enabled us to thrive in all economies since 1983. Please join us and let us serve you.
Ken Barkey & Wyoming’s Best Staff
