Terrible service, when it wasn't even busy!!! Less to say about the food!

Well, don't stroll in when its less than busy, ask to take a table right next to the bar and expect quick service or service period. The long wait for my first drink made me realize I rate below the two gentlemen that sat down after I did. The rather aloof bartender finally made it to my table and presented himself disinterested in anything I had to say - much less ask if I was a new or returning customer.

In this economy my dollar is hard to part with and harder than ever earned. Well, I am sure I chose wrong ordering the Jack Daniels Chicken Sandwich, since it doesn't say chicken outside. Well, I suggest they remove any trace of a chicken product from their menu.

When the bill came, I was even more disappointed. The only redeeming factor was I discovered a great beer STONE IPA. They obviously had no hand in making the beer thus it had a chance at being decent.

Beer and Burgers!!! YAY

What a concept - GREAT beer and GREAT burgers. PERFECT

Words to describe Prime 16...

COZY, Affordable, Delicious (best sweet potato fries and perfect burgers), AMAZING (selection of beer)

I have tried MANY beers, and MANY burgers. LOVE sitting at the bar - learning about the beers and eating the greatest burgers. Not a Turkey burger fan but the turkey burger is GREAT!!

Worth a visit. Great concept - a little loud but it is a BAR.

Great quality ingredients and friendly staff.



Great burgers and brews

Great choice of burgers, and the pretzel bun make the experience quite unique! My favorites are: the Cowboy Burger (with the fried egg on top) and the Latino Burger with the hot sausage/beef combo. My wife loved the grilled cheese with avacado. Beer selection excellent and the prices from 5:00-7:00 are great. My picky father-in-law thought Bobby Flay's Burger Palace at Mohegun Sun was the best burger until we took him to Prime 16. Prime is # 1........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
