Excellent Service, from the host to the GM. The food was phenomenal! We had 4 people with us and all had 4 different things, including dessert. Not one complaint. Highly recommended!!

This was our first experience at 501 Prime. This dinner was for our 17th wedding anniversary. This isn’t a place we could visit frequently but it was excellent for a special event. This place was recommended by one of my wife’s friends and it did not disappoint! Food was superb, service was excellent, and the environment was top notch.

The GM came by a few times to check on us, and our server was on point. Thanks for a great dining experience for my wife and myself on our special day.

I have hearing problems in crowds , so I had issues communicating with my dinning partners . Food was good , not excellent . ,The waiter did a very good job but he was a little chatty for me . I consider a good waiter one who checks with you on a regular basis but doesn’t over do it . If you are looking for a very nice dinning experience in Hot Springs , my preference would be The Vault .

501 Prime always delivers. Outstanding food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. Yes, it’s expensive, but it’s worth it to treat yourself and those you love with the best every now and then. And 501 is the best in Hot Springs .

For 5 girls getting together for cocktails 501 can’t be beat! Reservations were a snap, we got just what we ask for seats at the bar! Our bartender was friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient! Our cocktails were perfect and our glasses stayed filled! The oysters were extra good as was the rest of the food that we had that evening! Thank you 501 Prime and thank you Open Table.

Food was way overpriced. My wedge salad came out brown. The 18oz blackened steak was 12oz of fat. They sat a very loud party next to us that was over the top and vulgar.

I drove to Hot Springs to celebrate my birthday. I asked the concierge at my hotel about the best restaurant in town and she suggested 501 Prime. She was right. It was awesome. The strip steak was delicious as was the polenta I had for the side. The drinks superb. And the experience perfect. It was a great place to celebrate.

The Boursin filet and polenta was amazing!!! They make their own bacon, which was excellent on my wedge salad. Fabulous whiskey/bourbon/wine selections all reasonably priced. Dishes have a wine pairing, which we ordered and it was delicious! Joe Don was personable and attentive - it was a great dining experience and I highly recommend 501 Prime!

I have been coming to this restaurant since it has opened once a year from Memphis. This time I decided to bring the family along as well and 501 prime did not disappoint! Everything from the food to the service to the excellent staff! Everything was on point! If you have time after dinner go upstairs and have some dessert cocktails on the patio! It’s beautiful and very cozy! Will be coming back for years to come! Thank you Matt fuller for opening this restaurant!

As always, great food. Party of 4 and we had pork chops with peach glaze (2 of us), Steak Oscar and the King Fish.
Service was professional, our waitress was great.

We were seated extremely close to another table and we hoped for more of a personal ambience since we made reservations with 'Anniversary' in the comment sections.

The waiter at the close table smelled of BO. We smelled him every time he walked by.

The GM came around to each table to welcome everyone which is always nice; the hostess was nice and professional as well

Our meal was amazing and our server, Chris was very friendly and helpful. He gave recommendations for food and beverages that we were very happy with.
The noise factor was not a normal occurrence from my previous experiences at 501 Prime, just a very loud and inappropriate older male thinking everyone wanted to be entertained by his phone calls and slurping his two dozen oysters.
I will go back and pray we don’t have people seated next to us that don’t know how to act in a nice restaurant.
