In June at Pebble Beach I had the must have 16oz NY Strip Steak. I must admit I paid more at Pebble Beach for my steak and it was not as good as the steak I had last night at the Prime Rib. The Greenberg Potato Skins are a great choice. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass and she thought it was great. I’m bias as my favorite restaurant in Baltimore is the Prime Rib and has been since about 1976.

It was a nice restaurant. I loved the seating because it was easy to talk to other people. The noise level was nice. The food was great.

We ordered Lobster bisque Soup, Buzz Salad, Mash Potatoes and Prime Rib Signature Cut. The Bartender told us the Lobster Bisque Soup had lots of lobster in it..true! Hardly any lobster. The Salad was so small and nothing but lettuce, little tomato, egg and a sliver of avocado. Rip Off. The Mash Potatoes were terrible. Very salty and didn't taste like mash potatoes should. The Prime Rib was good..very expensive. The service was good. I won't go back. The value and quality are not worth it

Overall I had a great dining experience. The food was a little disappointing. We ordered a med rare tomahawk ribeye and it came out over cooked. I said something at the time and I just felt that there was no acknowledgement about it. For the price point I expected better. Our server was nice and friendly and the live music was a great touch.

The waitress was bad. The girl who was bussing tables and attending to all of our needs was excellent. My wife's prime rib was over cooked. My strip was under cooked. I sent mine back. By the time they brought it back I had lost my appetite and told them to forget it. Live singing was way too loud, although the artist was really good. Everyone clapped when she went on break. The waitress was hyper focused on another table, and we were all but ignored. She never asked if we wanted anything to drink other than water. And by the way, ice water should have ice in it, and definitely shouldn't be warm. Never again. Only gave two stars for the bus-girl who was actually doing all the work.

I ordered my steak medium well my steak was very red not cooked to my liking at all. It’s a steak/meat place you think they know how to cook it and for 60$ it should be to your liking. I sent it back it took forever to come back then they totally overcooked it and by that time my bf had eaten his meal and I had to watch him eat and then eat alone Not worth the money in my opinion. I will not be back. The food is overpriced and not very good. My bf got the prime rib it was 85$ and he said it wasn’t that good no favor. Sides weren’t the best and dessert tasted stale

First the service was great. Our waitress Nicole was fantastic. Had some cocktails they were made perfectly. We ordered appetizers the Caesar Salad and Shrimp Cocktail were very good. My wife ordered her steak well done it was closer to medium well, but overall they were tasty. Food came promptly there was no wait. Dessert was delicious, cheesecake I had the French press coffee it was a little too strong for my taste. Overall very nice experience. A little loud but it is a restaurant in a casino. Price was fine but for the quality of the food you can do better if you go into Center City.

Brunch was fabulous however when we came back for dinner I was appalled at the service. We were quickly sat, drink order taken. 25 minutes and nothing. 35 minutes server comes back, takes drink order again and dinner order. Now an additional 20 minutes later comes back and says, “what did you order again”. Needless to say I waited an hour for a cocktail, an hour and a half for dinner and got average steaks at best. Do Better!

Service was excellent. The restaurant is beautiful. Menu was typical for a steakhouse. My husband and I split all that we ordered and was absolutely enough for each of us. Wedge salad, Oysters Rockefeller, 16 oz ribeye, baked potato, lobster tail, and creamed spinach. We will return and try other choices next time.

Undercooked frittata, clearly older deviled eggs, a salad that was 95% chiffonade'ed romaine. Ran out of Espresso (?!?!) Good bloody Mary's and Bacon.

Skip if you have other options for Brunch.

We went for brunch. The $15 drinks are VERY small. The skillet breakfast was VERY dry and has no tomatoes as described. The burger with egg was delicious. I ordered the crab cake Benedict and revived the prosciutto Benedict. Waiter was friendly. Loud rap music was playing on a Sunday morning at 11am. We couldn’t tell if from the casino or the restaurant
