We dined at the David Burke Prime prior to attending a concert at Foxwoods. The David Burke Prime is a steakhouse. It was predictably busy on a Saturday night and we did not have a reservation as we were "walk ins". My wife and I were promptly seated at a high top table next to the bar. Our table was... More

Recently dined here for my birthday and ordered their Monday Night Lobster Special. The hot popovers were huge, fresh and hot - perfect start. Lobster dumplings for my appetizer were delish (fried). Lobster was broiled with garlic butter in the shell and was a good size and yummy. Dessert was crème brule, moist and creamy. Finishing touch was the cotton... More

The restaurant was nice, great atmosphere, but I ordered the 30 day dry aged Ribeye, which was not cheap and it was more fat then meat. I literally got maybe 4 slices out of it and the rest was just uneatable. We love steak and enjoy eating out at great steak houses, but this one left us a little hungry....

This was the perfect trifecta. The ambiance was poor, the food was underwhelming and the service was non-existent. My steak was undercooked (I ordered medium rare and it came out barely rare) and bland. No garnish, just a steak on a plain white plate. Boring!! The overpriced red wine I ordered was cold and the server had no clue how... More

Description
Celebrated Chef David Burke will bring his culinary expertise to Foxwoods Resort Casino, with the opening of David Burke Prime on July 9, 2008. All cuts of meat served at the restaurant will be imported directly from Creekstone Farms in Kentucky and dry-aged for 28 to 75 days in the restaurant’s in-house dry-aging room. In addition, David Burke Prime will offer thousands of bottles of premium wine from around the world. Located on the hotel level of Grand Pequot Tower in Foxwoods Resort Casino, the 13,000-square-foot steakhouse will seat 280 people and feature a 35-foot tall wine tower escalating up three stories to the casino level. In addition, the restaurant will include a 28-seat bar and 1,700-square-foot private banquet area, accommodating up to 100 people. Similar to David Burke’s Primehouse in Chicago, which was just voted Best Steakhouse in Chicago, David Burke Prime will feature an aging room with walls lined in imported pink Himalayan rock salt, crafted here in the U.S.
