Last night, once again, The Prime Rib reinforced why it’s the best restaurant in Baltimore. We were two couples. We started with Cocktails, Oysters on the Half Shell, Escargot, and Greenberg Potato Skins. The oysters are always the most select, most plump, and most perfectly...More

The filets, salmon, and imperial crab were superb. The imperial crab was all lump crabmeat, no mayo, and incredible taste. The service was impeccable and classy. There is free valet parking. One of Baltimore’s best!

This is an iconic steak house to the core - fancy black and white decor and stellar service. Steaks were phenomenal - go for the massive bone-in rib eye, get the potato skins (they are NOT pub style), have some oysters and live it up!...More
