Prime Steakhouse

I thought it was just ok. Service was not personable and food not as good as our expensive steakhouses at home.

Pizza was great as a late night snack. Needs to be more people working as it is busy after 10;00 pm

We had a late flight and we were able to pick a late disembarkation. I think it’s probably chaos to get off early
