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.

    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.

    Delicious complimentary popovers. Huge martinis- waiter poured them during the meal into a new chilled glass to keep them cold, great touch. Steaks and sides were delicious and waiter was excellent. Very popular restaurant so be sure to make a reservation.

    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.

    Once again I trollop over to Kenny's, this time with the CEO in tow. And once again, they did not disappoint. From service to experience to food...it is all top notch. Jeff, the manager is an amazing individual whose customer-centric attitude permeates to all his staff in all areas. The food that comes out is more than tasty, it is fresh, delectable, and downright amazing. I had the Tuna steak rare. Cooked perfectly served with a side (I chose broccolini). Two others had burgers and commented how well prepared they were. Service is always above par and attentive. Price is $12 - $18 average at lunch. A must go anytime.

    Kenny's is our OU Groups New Go-To Place for the annual OU/UT Football weekend. The place has been Energetic with Very Good Food and Outstanding Service. Even this year, with a small Hic-cup in one food dish, the wait person and manager was on it and went beyond to make all right. We recommend it to people who are going to Dallas and our group will be back next year if not before! Thanks to Kenny's for making our weekend a little more fun!

    The popovers served instead of the usual bread are a unusual, but fantastic touch, and the meal only improves from there. Service is attentive, but not smothering, and if you make a reservation, the server will address you by name, which is another elegant and unusual touch. The salads are filling but light, and the oscar burger made me wish for more room for a few more bites.

    This place was great! We took our parents here for their anniversary and they have us free bread to take home and a gift card. They went out of their way to take care if our needs. Although they don't have slings for a baby seat, they found an area in the restaurant where we were able to keep our baby next to us on the bench. I'm from out if state and the one thing I've said about Dallas is their restaurants are just ordinary but this place gives dallas something to brag about. Finally, Dallas was able to provide quality through kennys!
