What trip to historic Boston, Massachusetts would be complete without a good Prime Rib Dinner? We’ve got the best prime rib restaurants in Boston listed below. Eat-up at a reasonable price, sit back, and enjoy a Red Sox game while you’re at it!

Everyone ends up in Boston, Massuchusetts at some point in their life: school field trip, family vacation, watching a sporting event, or doing business in Beantown is part of American life; much like watching live performances of country music in Nashville, Tennessee; crossing the Golden Gate Bridge to San Francisco, California; or visiting The Alamo in Texas.

Prime Rib lovers don’t despair, there’s plenty of beef in Boston for even the pickiest of palettes. Even better, some of our favorite Boston Prime Rib restaurants have rocking bars that can extend a pleasant dinner into an exciting night.

3 comments to Boston’s Best Prime Rib – Where to Eat Prime Rib in Beantown

  • Yuly Reid says:

    Durgin-Park is a little rough around the edges but I was pleased with the service. Prices are reasonable and there’s plenty of other options besides prime rib.

    its in Bostons historical district so there’s lots to take in.

  • Eric Law says:

    Readers beware: almost all of the “prime rib” served at the restaurants listed is steak, not what I consider “prime rib” which is beef rib roasted in the oven.

    Abe & Louie’s has prime rib listed on the menu and it’s fantastic. Davio’s, Grill 23, Mooo, and Ruth’s Chris all do NOT have prime rib on the menu.

    • Brendan Meehan says:

      Hi Eric,

      Thank you for your comment and valuable advice.

      Is it safer for true prime rib lovers to request Bone-In rib, so they can see to believe? We’ve purchased true prime rib before and it is definitely more believable attached to a thick bone with pockets of fat to trim out.

      What do you think?
