    Food was excellent, waitress was pleasant, view was amazing - saw lots of wildlife out the window. Wish we could’ve stayed longer to hear the singer. Overall, it was a great priced meal for how nice the ambiance was.

    I've enjoyed eating here before, but on my last visit, I didn't like any of the food. The self serve entrees are nowhere near what was offered over the past year or two.

    Your waitress acted like she did not want to help us because we were not going to give her a tip probably in her eyes because we were paying with our cards from the casino. My steak was not cooked right at all and I shouldn't have even been charged but I was and I didn't appreciate the hard bread and when I asked her to give us new bread she never brought it out at all. So I just was very displeased. 619-634-8450 is my phone number

    We had a great experience at Prime Cut. Beautiful restaurant and views. Our server Christina G. was phenomenal and did an outstanding job from start to finish. We were greeted right away, beverages were always full, and she gave the perfect amount of attention to our table at all the right times. The cocktails and wine were great! Everyone was very happy with their food. 5 star experience, we will be back and we will be requesting Christina to take care of us again. Thank you!!!

    This is only the second time we have had lunch since normally the restaurant is only open in the evening. The menu is quite limited, which is why it is so surprising that they could not get anything right. My boyfriend and I both started with a Caesar salad which was lackluster at best. We have had the same salad almost every time we have come at night, but whoever is in the kitchen during the day just threw a bunch of Romain lettuce on a plate with some Parmesan cheese and anchovies and drowned all of it in dressing. Normally this is my favorite Caesar salad and somehow they made it inedible. We then proceeded with our entrées and the salmon was so over cooked it looked and tasted like cat food. Cheap cat food at that. The chicken pasta with garden vegetables and herb sauce was under cooked macaroni spirals with chicken that was so overcooked I could’ve used it to hijack a plane. The garden vegetables were raw carrots and an abundance of roasted onions and barely any sauce whatsoever. With that being said I don’t know his name but the server was quite attentive even though he didn’t seem to notice that we barely ate anything at all. The ambience was nice, the manager was also very welcoming but whoever’s in the kitchen probably needs to be retrained. I am getting to the point that even though all of my meals at this restaurant are comped it is still not even worth it because the food just keeps getting worse and worse.

    Got there when they opened sat us down at a booth. The table was dirty also the booth seats had food crumbs all over. Someone didnt do a good job of cleaning. My silverware had food on them. There was a big chip in the table that could hurt someone. Finally was able to order . Food took an hour to get and it was wrong and cold. Didnt get the bread service before the meal. The waitress brought the bread in a box in a bag to go. We didnt ask for that to be done. I was waiting for the bread I was hungry. The prices are too high.

    Prime Cut was a superior location and exceptionally pleasant place to enjoy brunch until the last two weeks. Food was always outstanding and service was top-of-the-line by your outstanding waiters/waitresses! Your change to a "buffet" style operation has changed that unique process! Because of our age and mobility, we found your previous method of operation truly exceptional but is now in line with other similar locations to enjoy brunch!

    We don't get out much. Hardworking Mommy and Daddy. But MY GOD was this the best awesomest experience we have ever shared together 30 years now. Server very classy and knowledgeable. Food was so good. Fresh bread and butter. The steak was the finest we ever had. The ambience was very classy. I was very proud of dining here and we will definitely return A.S.A.P.

    Our family came here for the Mothers Day Brunch Buffet and it was amazing. We were able to come get whatever we wanted at the different stations. My favorite was the prime rib cutting station which also had the most amazing lobster tails! We have been coming here on Sundays every month for a couple of years, and it has sometimes taken the wait staff awhile to bring items. This way was much faster. Plus our server Manuel was the best on the planet, willing to bring us whatever we wanted right away! I was very impressed!

    First time eating here, the food was delicious. The steak had very good seasoning and the medium was perfect, the lobster had also a very good seasoning and the mushroom cream was very good. The only downside was the service, when we were sat down it took a while for the waiter to come and when he did he gave us menus said something and left before we had a chance to ask about the drinks and it was like that thru all the service, he came for a little bit, did what he had to and then left for very longs periods of time. We know that there’s a shortage of staff everywhere now but it felt very rushed every time he came to our table and like he couldn’t wait to leave us and move on to the other tables.

    The pot pie was quite salty. Too bad, I was looking forward with its presentation of the dish but 2 spoonful is all I can handle. On the other hand, the calamari was delicious and crispy. Loved it. The staff service is all 5 stars.

    We have a brunch reservation for 2 weeks ahead. Ambiance is good, but they run out of some of the items in the main menu like the assorted sushi, and fish of the day (teriyaki) . I was really disappointed when I am craving to eat it. It was supposed to be part of the brunch. We should have at least get a complimentary discount or something, but server acted like it’s normal that’s it for the day.

    Easter brunch- we ate outside on the balcony and the weather was perfect. It was nice & quiet. They were short on servers so there was some gaps between dishes, but we took that as the opportunity to relax and enjoy the views/sunshine.
