A Prime Decision

Thanks to Haile, the limo driver who suggested trying this place. I wanted one place, my husband another, we ended up at The Prime Rib and were soooo glad we did. The atmosphere, the service, the food ... ah, the food ... excellent! We'd return again in a heartbeat!

Perfect on all counts

I haven't had anything comparable to this in Philly. Hugest prime ribs I've seen and impeccable service. Worth the money.
