My husband and I went to Prime on The Avenue for our anniversary dinner. We had a Living Social coupon for a “Steak Dinner For Two”. With the coupon we received a shared appetizer, two steak dinners and a shared dessert. We had the shrimp cocktail as the appetizer (8 jumbo shrimp). I had the prime rib and my husband had the New York strip steak. Both were absolutely delicious and extremely large. The potatoes and vegetables were served family style. Both bowls could easily serve 4 people. We both only ate half of our entrees and took the remainder home for the next night. Our shared dessert was the chocolate lava cake, which was fabulous. I would definitely go back again for the food. When we arrived for our dinner at 7:30 p.m. on a Thursday night, the restaurant looked closed. The bar area was completely empty, not even a bartender. We wandered into the adjacent room and saw only 2 people in the entire restaurant. We had to wait approximately 10 minutes before an employee showed up. The waitress was really sweet and seated us right away. The entire time we were in the restaurant, she was the only employee we saw. She did everything, i.e. get the drinks from the bar, serve the tables, clean the tables, etc. so service was rather slow. She kept disappearing for long stretches of time. The restaurant is owned by the owners of The Crab Shack which is located up the street. I may be wrong but, I got the impression that the food was being cooked at The Crab Shack and brought down to the restaurant. I think that is why the waitress kept disappearing. The poor girl kept apologizing for the delay. Several other couples arrived for dinner while we were eating, since no employee was there to greet/seat them some of them left. I started getting up and walking into the bar area to tell new arrivals that the waitress would be with them shortly. Since I was only there once, I don’t know if this is a common occurrence. If it is common, they must lose a lot of business. The restaurant was very pretty, the food was excellent and our waitress was really sweet and helpful. I am definitely going back again.
