The prime rib was good, although not as tender as it should have been. The salad was good too and the service was great. I can say it is a good place if I want to eat prime rib that I dont need to drive all away to San Francisco.

this restaurant was very interesting. we were greeted by the manager, who was very welcoming. he asked us if we wanted drinks and served them to us. our party was seated and orders were taken. you can actually watch the prime rib being cooked and sliced. orders took a little long, but it was well worth it when the food arrived.

The food is to die for! You won't be disappointed. What I love best about the place is that you can reserve the restaurant for private parties....the whole restaurant! You won't go home with an empty stomach!

Former cooks at the House of Prime Rib in San Francisco, and took the taste with them!! Its a neighborhood place and no need to dress up. The service is great and the restaurant clean.

PROS: Great food
CONS: On Broadway in Burlingame -- parking stinks!!!

The first time I went to this restaurant I was staying at a nearby hotel and found it driving by, and thought it looked nice. Went in as a single diner with no reservation and was given a table at the bar. I received excellent service from my waiter and I thought the food was outstanding. I was determined to come back on my next trip to SF. A few months later I was in SF again and made a point of coming back here. This time I was seated in the dining room and since it was so good before, I ordered the same thing. The food was mediocre at best and the service was terrible. I could not get my waiter to come back to my table once I was served, he was too busy with a very large table nearby. There are too many dining choices in SF to come back here again. Had my second experience been as good as the first, this would be a regular stop on my business trips to SF.

Okay, I've been averagaing about once or twice a year at this restaurant. Recently, I read the feedbacks and then went there for my family party. #1, ALL large parties, groups over 4 people get stuck up stairs, no air conditioning, the day I went was a heat spell, can you say, 105 degrees outside and uncirculated air inside, they did have make shift fans upstairs blowing, but heat rises...... I had 9 people, and at the time, downstairs was nearly empty and they could have put the middle tables together to accomodate us since those tables were empty. #2, Yes the salad dressing is allot and heavy, drowned. the french bread was abit stale or maybe they sliced the bread early in the day? I ordered the largest prime rib cut, I ordered rare, it came out med. rare. Oddly enough the outter meat was perfectly tender then as I cut into the meat, very, very, tough meat. See my review of Outback in Daly City Ca. They had a bad slab of meat, compare it to tough dried out corn beef. I complained via email to the manager, I got a $25.00 coupon, the 2nd time around the meat was excellent, tender, juicy, sliced like butter. Getting back to this meal, that is why I know what grade the meat and how NOT to be chewy and grainy meat should be. Pudding bread? was okay, the cream of corn was firm & creamy okay, service overall was okay, they did refill the water, but the main waiter did not check on us to ask how the food was, nor did he come with the fresh pepper. I agree with the reviewers, if House of Prime Rib is too far of a drive, then go to OUTBACK, in Daly City. It's way cheaper, there's variety in salad dressing, bread is warm, the way they slice the meat from thin, med. large, extra large, varies greatly as does Broadway Prime, the last couple of times I was there if you ordered the largest prime rib, you get the "bone", well, we didn't but didn't complain because it took awhile to get the orders out, etc. For the others: Dine there and then do a review

Pros: Easy Parking. Safe Neighborhood. STOP COMPARING THIS TO HOUSE OF PRIME RIB

Cons: Groups over 4+ go upstairs ="Not Romantic", food = "Average TO Below Average Rating

The place was noisy. Too many people shoved into the space available. The service was ok, not top notch. The food was mediocre to say the least. The vegetables were overcooked, and the potatoes were lukewarm.
I'd rather stay home and have canned soup!!!!

I'm a pescatarian so I cannot comment on the steaks but I can comment on the really great bar they have at the front of the restaurant. First, Broadway Prime has the two best bartenders, Jason and Diego. They are super super friendly and know their alcohol inside out. Every drink my boyfriend and I have had at this bar has been excellent hands down. We have not had one, not one, bad drink here. Not ever. Some times I know what I want, some times I don't and this is where they really help out. I may say, "I'm feeling sort of like X" and they'll create something I could not have named or known I wanted and it's exactly what I need. Can't recommend this place enough.

The owner of Broadway Prime used to be a chef at House of Prime Rib. So the formula is matched entree for entree. That's the first of their problems. Beets in the soggy prepared salads is disgusting. Wait staff know more Chinese than English. I could have sworn I was in a Chinese restaurant. Prime rib isn't aged enough so it's tasteless. And everything is as pricey as House of Prime Rib. 3 visits. 3 strikes. Out.

Pros: parking, good for groups

.

Steaks are O.K., Prime Rib cuts are rather small for the price but were awfully bland. The salad was pretty good, but nothing spectacular. Service actually wasn't that bad. It seems like they're trying to be a House of Prime Rib, but they're way short of coming close to the real King Henry in S.F. Nothing but a poor imitation.

The prime rib was tasty, but not as tender as it should have been. The salad was good, but nothing spectacular, I wasn't impressed by the garlic mashed potatos, the creamed corn was also only okay, and the bread was just bread. The For $28, it wasn't a bad deal, considering you are paying for prime grade meat. The service was excellent, people were very friendly. Overall, it didn't impress me, but at the same time it wasn't bad. Just another prime rib house.

This is an older style overrated steak and prime rib joint. Extremely limited menu... Poor quality steaks, rushed service, very noisy. Definately not reccomeneded. I would reccomend taking the time and driving to the city for a quality dining experience.

I was driving down the main street in Burlingame and saw this place and it looked nice enough from the car. The next day I decided to stop in and give it a try. The menu is very limited, Prime Rib in 3 sizes, New York Strip in 3 sizes, and fish of the day, and a vegetarian dish. The Prime Rib was great and on the bone and came along with potato and vegetable. I think you will enjoy it if you are hungry for Prime Rib.

I've been to many steak houses from Sizzlers(Sizzle-less) to Morton's Steakhouse. By far, the best value for the quality has to be at Broadway Prime. The staff was attentive and courteous and the portions were large, not to mention tender and juicy. There might be places where the prime rib may be a bit better, but at those places, you have to give an arm and a leg in exchange for a rib(steak). For the money, there is no better prime rib in town!

This restaurant has incredible prime rib but also wonderful NY steaks as well.
Everytime I've been to this place it's packed with people. Their meats are tasty - better than House of Prime Rib in SF.

The prime rib tasted great and was tender just like HPR but the size of the peninsula cut was smaller than the smallest cut at HPR. With the Select and Broadway cuts, seconds were free. Yorkshire pudding is the best I've ever had hands down. Great mashed potatoes and salad did not have the nasty msg that HPR dumps on theirs. Chocolate mousse also excellent. They handled my party of 20 on a Saturday night with ease! We were seated even before everyone arrived and they brought the food out amazingly fast (everyone had their plates in minutes). Service was just excellent. Decor isn't all fancy stuffy like HPR but that was fine by me especially since the trade off is easy parking and quick service.

My husband likes to go there when he is craving for some great prime rib. Although I don't eat beef, I still love the place because the fish is always good and the service is wonderful.

I arrived at the restaurant at 7:00 PM without reservations and I was seated in the bar area. I received excellent service from Abrihi who was not only friendly; but, very informitive about the menu.

I had the Broadway cut prime rib and it was 5 A quality.

I've been here twice now, and both times were fantastic.

From the salad to the yorkshire pudding to the prime rib - everything is just fantastic. I went with a table of twelve and a table of four and everybody loved it. The prime rib is truly the best I have ever had. Last time we had a bottle of '97 St. Clement that really highlighted it.

Service was perfect both times - and try the desserts - very good, but too many to name.

My one criticism is that both times I've been there, it's been hotter than hell - like sweat in your seat hot.

throughout my experiences in several steak/prime rib houses, i must say that Broadway Prime is by far the best one. the atmosphere and settings was terrific and we were seated very promptly. our waiter went completely out of his way to make sure our experience at the restraunt was superb. the food was brought out much quicker than we expected, was the quality of the food was top notch. i will definitely be returning to broadway prime over and over again. i suggest that you do the same!

BROADWAY PRIME

Pros: No parking hassles, walk-ins accepted without 40+ minute wait like in House of Prime Rib, casual atmosphere, EXCELLENT SERVICE, prime rib quality as good as House of Prime Rib.

Cons: Limited wine list, limited side offerings, salad tends to be drenched with dressing (ask for it on the side), prime rib soaked in au jus, mild horseradish tastes like whipped butter (ask for both mild and spicy versions and create your own concoction on your bread plate), creme brulee, again, tasted like whipped butter.

EXCELLENT SERVICE MAKES UP FOR ALL. Will come back again and recommend but NOT as the best prime rib in the area. House of Prime Rib is still the best.

I have heard this place is owned and operated by ex employees of House of Prime Rib, so you KNOW they can't go wrong. Still carved at a station, with all the good sides, it's a bargain. Don't miss the garlic mashed potatoes, and creamed spinach, or the creamed corn. That's something House of PR does not offer. Good Yorkshire puddin'!! Great service to boot. Plus it's not well known, and well hidden, so getting a table is usually no problem.

I've been to House of Prime Rib (which is pretty good) and I've been to Broadway Prime, and I've got to say that I like Broadway Prime better. Here's the reasons why: 1.) Broadway Prime is not as stuffy. They're both richly decorated, but HPR seems like the inside of coffin. Its dead. Whereas Broadway Prime has a lot of people and it didn't feel stuffy the way HPR felt. 2.) Broadway Prime use better meat... I talked to someone in the know and that was confirmed... I don't mean the waiter... (tho i did confirm with him to) but they do use better meat. But what I liked was that I liked my choices of sides at BP than at HPR. 3). Serving Size - Tie. They're both huge, and House of Prime Rib will serve you an extra taste as well...

such a place existed on the shop strewn Broadway Ave. A nice place where you can dine in jeans or possibly even prom. I had been there only once and my only complaint would be that our waiter forgot to give us our yorkshire pudding. I really didn't mind but if i'm paying for it...i want it. Our waiter seemed to be covering for someone or on overtime but you could tell he was making a genuine effort to keep up happy. Prime rib was great. oh...we were also seated in a weird table next to the kitchen alley and RIGHT next to and facing another party which was weird since there was ample seating throughout. will repeat
