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.

    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.

    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 waitress and I joked about that and she offered to go get pizza..I think she really would have. In fact we ordered cappuccinos and they went next door to Starbucks to get them! The food we did order was great. I had the salmon salad and it was very tasty.

    This was a business dinner, 4 of us, my guests recommended Kenny's .. Great food, Steak was cooked perfect. the pork chop was HUGE.. the food was wonderful as a general consensus. Portions are large. EXCEPT for the drinks, Scotch pour [neat] was measured .. i was surprised considering the cost. The wait staff are very professional and friendly.

    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!

    We had a 9:15 PM reservation, but it was well worth the wait. The crab cake app is the best in Texas. It is a Maryland crab cake. The seabass and the porkchop were a big hit. The portions are nice and the service is outstanding. This is my third time to Kenny's and I would highly recommend Kenny's!!!!! I will be back

    My wife and guests dinner was very good, however, I was unable to eat the New York strip. The waiter informed me that the chef had a hard time cutting into it. The manager apologized for the steak and gave me a $20 credit, which I do appreciate. Please understand that I intend to dine at your establishment again. Overall the experience was very good.

    I overheard co-workers raving about this place and made reservations for my husband and I. Initially I was not happy that the only reservations were 5:00 p.m. or 9:45 p.m. We chose 9:45 p.m. on a Friday night. The restaurant was packed when we arrived at 9:30. We were seated by 10:00 p.m. and the magic began. Our waitress Renee was fantastic with her knowledge and suggestions. We had the crab cake....delicious, short ribs...delicious, pork chop....delicious and several sides....all delicious. To sum it up the food and service was amazing!! Thanks again Renee we will be back soon!

    I'm a native East Coast foodie so it's hard to please my palette. As far as the food goes, it was "okay"/good. I would definitely eat here again but perhaps for appetizers and drinks. That aside, the service is EXCELLENT. Our server went above and beyond for our group. This alone is reason enough to frequent Kenny's any day!

    The food and service as usual was on point. My lunch partner asked to be surprised because he was undecided and got a sample of both dishes. The food was great but very rich, so be prepared to be stuffed at lunchtime. It may be better to leave this for special occasions because I certainly wouldn't be able to eat here everyday.

    Fun atmoshphere, but wrong choice for a romantic anniversary dinner, as noise level was very loud. Fabulous filet, cold martinis (swapping out for freshly frosted glasses a nice touch). Looked forward to the crab cake, but bit into several large bits of shell. Very friendly and attentive service.

    We went to Kenny's with friends for a celebratory dinner. We were seated on time and our waitress, Katie, was awesome. With Grey Goose on tap, how can you go wrong? Two people ordered the redfish that was outstanding. One had the braised short rib, which was melt in your mouth delicious, and the other ordered the double cut pork chop. Fabulous all the way around! Kenny's is consistently good and always a pleasurable experience.
