I would recommend the California Dreaming salad ($8), consisting of greens, cheeses, almonds, tomatoes, bacon, ham, and chopped eggs (which I would have omitted). They also offer steaks, seafood (the Cajun-crusted tilapia was good), chicken, sandwiches, and burgers. Top it all off with a nice slice of key lime pie.
Also, by bringing in their flier, which we discovered at the Charleston Visitor Center, the waitress brought us a nice free basket of their lovely honey croissants (a $4 value).
One word to the wise: If you would like to check out this restaurant, before you leave your home or hotel, plug the address into Mapquest for directions, as it is rather tricky to find.

The food is general American fare and quite tasty. Menu items include salads, steaks, fresh seafood, ribs, chicken, and burgers. They have an extensive dessert and appetizers menu and a full-service bar. No matter what the weather is outside, try their baked potato soup. It is to-die-for and served year-round. In fact, I come here just for the soup. It is very thick and creamy, and you can get toppings added to it such as cheese and bacon, so it tastes like a loaded baked potato. Several people in our party tried the seafood and said it was fresh and some of the best they had tasted. My husband loves seafood and went with the fried crab claws. These are the claws of a blue crab, fried up in a handmade batter and served with fries. I had a tough time deciding and went with the 11-oz. prime rib, served medium-well. It was quite tasty and very tender. It came with a choice of fries or potato, and I went with the potato, loaded. Now, I was deciding between that and the Southwest bacon and quesadilla. Suzanne went with that and was kind enough to let me try a bit. It was mouthwatering. That will be my choice next time. It comes with spicy chicken, bacon, ham, cheese, scallions, and jalapenos. On the side, you get sour cream, green onions, and tomatoes. Perfection! John and I were both 3/4 full, so we split dessert. We went with the amazing apple-walnut-cinnamon pie with ice cream. Oh, my! Worth every calorie.
Sadly enough, the service was horrible. Since we had a large party, we were able to make reservations. We had tickets for a ghost tour afterwards and had allowed ourselves a very generous 1.5 hours at the restaurant. When we got there, we still had to wait. I finally had to say something to the hostess, who just huffed and rolled her eyes. We were crammed into our seats with barely any elbow room. The service was very slow. It took forever just to get salads and soup. We had to keep stopping our waitress to try to find out about our food. She didn’t seem very concerned, even after we explained we had plans. When it finally came out, we had to inhale it.
I would give the food five stars and service two. They offer call-ahead seating. You can visit www.newyorkprime.com and then click on the restaurant.

We have eaten salads, hamburgers, and chicken strips, which were all good. Their honey-buttered croissants, served with a salad, absolutely melt in your mouth. The restaurant hums with people talking, so no music is needed as a background.
is a "must" for us. Try it! You will like it, too!

We were a group of 21 and called ahead about an hour before arrival. We were told to call back 30 minutes before we arrived, but just wait until we got there to "wait it out". We only waited 45-50 minutes for seating for our large group.
Coming from downtown Charleston the restaurant is not too diffcult to find. However, if you are coming from south of Charleston it is a little more difficult. It is best to get directions instead of just driving around and trying to find it. We used Yahoo Travel to print out directions.
