A word from Kenny's Wood Fired Grill
Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

    We always ask for seats at the Chef's Table to watch the symphony of this well-run kitchen. I paired a sparkling Gloria Ferrar with their house-smoked salmon Eggs Benedict. Had forgotten how succulent their salmon was and had paused a moment before ordering since the egg was fried rather than poached but; was glad I stepped out and ordered this entree. My guest ordered the Belgian waffles with fried chicken and raved about how juicy and tender the chicken was as he cut and ate each bite in a trance. Our water Lin was just superior and will ask for her next time.

    My wife and I went here for our anniversary. The waitress took special care of us and also brought us other menu items to try in addition to what we ordered just to be nice. The manager also stopped by to wish us a happy anniversary. The food was absolutely fantastic, we both had the ribeye, and all the sides were good. Balanced wine list, not too large of a selection but just enough to be interesting. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and suggested some good choices. We will definitely be back.

    So far I've been to Kenny's Woodfire Grill in Addison 5 or 6 times for both lunch and dinner. It's a great place to take my wife for a cool romantic dinner. It's also a great place to take clients I bring in from out of town. It's busy almost anytime you go in, which is a good indicator of the quality since it's on Beltline, a street with 100+ restaurants nearby. Luckily you can make a reservation for lunch, like I did, so my 2 bosses and I didn't have to wait for 30 minutes last Thursday. At happy hour and into the evening it really starts to get interesting. The people are high class and dressed to impress. You can see that many top-tier deals are beings struck by many in Kenny's. Overall: I recommend it if you'd like to eat well and be impressed or impress someone else.

    This was our 2nd visit to Kenny's. Service from Daniel was at a very high level. Ribs were excellent, fried egg burger too salty, overall food at Kenny's is great - especially at the more moderate pricing. A favorite now for lunch in D/FW.

    We went for my birthday and everything was fantastic. The food was delicious and they encouraged substitutions and special requests. The waitress even offered to let us pick a few appetizers as a sampler instead of just one. The service was amazing. At the end of dinner the manager came over and gave me a $20 gift card for my birthday. I was shocked and incredibly impressed. We will definitely be back.

    We celebrated my birthday with a few friends. From the moment we sat down our waiter was spot on and it was his first day. Service was excellent. The spinach artichoke wontons were SUPERB. I have to say my fillet was one of the most tender fillets I have ever had. And the pop overs what a great surprise. This restaurant is so worth a visit.

    First of all - the food was amazing and I like the ambiance but it is a bit loud so not so romantic. Our service started off really slow - it took a long time to get our drinks and even longer time to get our order placed. But after our order was made, our service was timely and it was nice to have the manager/owner? come around and ask us home our evening was going etc. All in all we'll be back so thank you.

    I've always heard/read great things about Kenny's and finally decided to give it a try for date night. We were NOT disappointed! We had the pork chop with Mac n Cheese and the Shrimp & Scallops with Asparagus. Both dishes were GREAT! The pork chop had great flavor and was juicy, which is rare for a grilled chop, so they clearly brined it. Everything was seasoned well.....nothing needed additional salt or pepper. The polenta that the shrimp & scallops comes with was also a very nice touch. This would have been a "filler" item most places, and would not have been as tasty as Kenny's made it.

    this was our first visit to this restaurant. We ordered the salmon and sea bass entrees. Both were excellent. The salmon was perfectly cooked which most of the restaurants usually overcook it. The service was very good and attentive. It was our anniversary and the waiter even got us a free appetizer that was excellent for free. We are glad that we discovered this place. We will bring the entire family next time.

    We had family in town and brought them here for lunch. Our server Dylan noticed that we were telling them what was good and picked up that it was their first time so brought them some appetizer samplers to really get a feel for what the place had to offer. We all ordered sandwiches for lunch which is a great value for the quantity of food we all received. Outstanding service as always, and we know where they will be requesting to dine next time they are in town!

    The service was good and the food was fantastic. The tenderloin crostini's appetizer was tender and cooked perfectly. The pork ribs were enormous, and I really like the Tilapia Oscar. At 6:30 in the evening, the place was very dark and quite loud. I was glad I made a reservation, otherwise we probably would have been in for a long wait. I have already recommended Kenny's to friends.

    Our experience was great start to finish. We were given a free appetizer (wontons and steak bruschetta) that were excellent as were the Mama Foo's meatballs we ordered. Our entrees, Ribs, Steak and Pork Chop were all great. Our server Dylan, was super with both his recommendations and his service. He replaced my wife's martini glass 3 times with a chilled glass to keep the drink cold. Great place, I highly recommend it.

    We came here on Friday with my in-laws because we LOVE Kenny's :) Our popovers with were delicious! Eggy and flaky and perfect. I got the filet and he got the ribeye. Both were cooked perfectly and had wonderful flavor. The adult mac and cheese was so rich and creamy. I wasn't so sure about the bits of ham mixed in with the noodles, but it really worked. The French fries that my husband got were obviously fresh cut and seasoned well. It makes all the difference when you fresh cut the fries. Throughout the night our server kept coming over and refreshing our drinks with a cold martini glass and fresh sugar on the rim. This was top notch service. My hubby and I will definitely be back.
