The Prime Rib Steak Picture

The Best Prime Rib
in the U.S.

Ranked the #1 Steakhouse in DC, Baltimore and Philadelphia by Zagat, we have been serving the highest quality cuts of meat and seafood for more than 40 years. Our Greenberg potato skins (top left) are world famous, and we have one of the finest selection of wines in the city.

The 4 Kings Photo at the Prime Rib DC

The very definition of
“Sophisticated Dining"

The Kings of Hollywood stand front and center as you enter The Prime Rib Washington DC. Like a Manhattan supper club of the 1940's - Louis Icart prints adorn the walls, the carpet is leopardskin, and the waiters wear tuxedos.
