The Prime Rib looks kind of like the inside of a cruise ship, and on most nights they have a live pianist (supplemented by a bassist on the weekends). It almost feels like you’re on the Titanic back in 1914, in that big dining room where Jack sees Rose walking down the staircase. While you spend the next 40 minutes arguing over whether Jack could have fit on the door (which he objectively could have), get at least one order of the Imperial Crab and a few steaks to share.
