    While I don't normally recommend these two places, my favourite places are for Prime Rib are:

    - The Keg (prefer the York St or Church St locations) and do not recommend anything else. At the Church St location, they will replace the sides with a side of Aparagus, for no additional charge.

    - Baton Rouge - I order it rare then get it grilled to medium rare. Again, I don't recommend anything else there, but the PR.

    I feel weird recommending these restaurants but they really do the job on the Prime Rib.

      Dont feel bad.. I havent had it at Baton Rouge, but when I go to the Keg mansion, the prime rib is the only thing I order( mm with those crispy fried onions). It really is good prime rib

      Ditto to prime rib at the Keg! Here's a tip if you're heading there on a weekend night - if you're calling to reserve a table you should reserve your prime rib orders at the same time. Once it's gone, it's gone.

        Beware! The Keg Mansion on Church will not take reservations on the weekend.
        We wanted to take my parents a few weeks ago and we were so annoyed.
        There were seven of us,including three kids, and the hostess suggested we could wait upstairs at the lounge/bar for an hour or two. I do not understand why they will not take reservations for larger parties.

          I find 'The Outback' a good choice.Have never been dissapointed.

            Thank you all for your suggestions. We ended up going to The Keg, and as usual they did not disappoint, thanks

              i know this is late but...

              i've heard nothing but good things about the prime rib at the house on parliament, but it is a pub so it might not be the atmosphere you're looking for.

              it's a traditional prime rib dinner i believe, with yorkshire pudding and the whole bit.

                The prime rib special sounds interesting - have they got a menu online?

                I find Canyon Creek does a good prime rib...so does Bardi's on York Street.

                  Off topic but the Pan Seared Halibut at Canyon Creek is really good

                    I recently had the prime rib at Canyon Creek (Vaughn Mills) and I found it alright. The horseradish mayo was a good touch. I prefer the prime rib at Baton Rouge (ONLY the woodbridge location) because they sear it and you get a healthy portion of sides.

                      I've also found the prime rib at Canyon Creek (Sherway) to be just ok... definitely not as good as The Keg.

                        The Keg for sure...but if you're really looking for something fancy, I'd say Harbour Sixty...but it is expensive.

                          so sorry that i didn't see this until now

                          HARBOUR 60!

                          it's a double cut and it's succulent! you can actually split the double cut and it's more than plenty for 2 ppl.

                          keg does a good one for the price, but it doesn't compare to 60
