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 waiter Dylan Thompson was the best ever. He was personable, friendly and helpful. Very attentive- when he found out we were from out of town, he gave us several other restaurant recommendations to fill our week but asked us to come back and visit Kenny's, of course! And we definitely will. The restaurant is loud and dark but the food was amazing and the vodka was icy cold. We will come back for sure when we visit Dallas next time. We loved the popovers, the lobster deviled egg appetizer, the red shrimp dish, the pork chop (16oz.!) and the asada beef special. My greek salad was large and delicious also. And the key lime pie was tart and perfect.

    The noise level was very loud This may have been due to a table of six right behind us who wanted the entire restaurant to hear what they had to say. The restaurant was full so there was no other table open. My appetizer was delicious. My wedge salad was not a wedge. It looked like a round of lettuce that had been smashed with a plate. Tasted fine but was definitely not a wedge. The filet entrée had a swirl of oil surrounding it on the plate which made it less than desirable to finish. The filet was cooked to perfection. The key lime pie was delicious. The service was okay. The waitress reached across me and another diner several times, so close that I moved back one time. Definitely a no go again.

    We have been coming to Kenny's Wood Fired Grill for three years now and it's the best restaurant in Dallas, if you are one of the few that has not been to Kenny's get on it! The service is fantastic, the food is excellent, we have had all the appetizers and what happens on our most recent visit this weekend? Another fantastic new appetizer created by our waiter Eric no less! Amazing spinach and artichoke won tons, wow! Alex the bartender again hooks us up with grey goose on tap and we have a nice bottle of wine with our dinner. Once again Kenny's delivers in spades. What is not mentioned is how you meet new friends at the bar every time you come to Kenny's, it is just the place to be. See you there soon!

    This was our second trip to Kenny's for Restaurant Week. The food was just as good as the first time which is why we wanted to go back. But the service was 5-star. Jordan anticipated our needs before we did. She brought us extra items when we couldn't decide. She poured my 1/2 finished martini from the bar into a fresh, ice cold glass when I got to the table. She was never far away. She was awesome! Make sure you have the Ahi Nachos and the crab cake. Delicious!

    i ate their twice, this past wedesday and then lunch this thursday. both times, i thought the food was just ok. I had the special steak with crabmeat and i thought the beef was too tenderized and the crab meat and sauce really not all that good. i believe the food has gone down hill since i was last in.. very ok food and way too much for what they charged on the steak, my bill was 125.00

    We go to Kenny's for various special occasions and then just when we want a tried and true experience. The food never disappoints. The sirloin crostini is a must. If you want some of the best BBQ in an upscale environment you've ever had, try the ribs - fall off the bone, ridiculous flavor.

    We came here for Restaurant Week. Normally, the servers rush you in & out and the portions are a fraction of their size. Not the case here. There was maybe a 15 minute wait for our reservation so we received a free appetizer in addition to the restaurant week menu. We got the HALF-POUND crab cake, which I highly recommend. The restaurant week menu started with a sampler of their tuna nacho and tenderloin crostini, both outstanding but I would favor the tenderloin. The salads were good but overdressed. The entrees were full-sized & HUGE. My wife and I took home leftovers - I got the ribs, she had the short rib - and had a full dinner the next night. No dessert for us but the overall experience was great & we will definitely be back.

    Home made croutons on the salad. I am on a no carb diet, but cannot resist the croutons. We recently went for restaurant week, although this was not our first time there. Kenny's is one of our favs. Excellent food without being snobish. The service was the wait staff is excellent. Always pouring more wine or water. I have never had a bad meal and we will always go back. The ONLY drawback is that it is pretty loud. NOt much space at the bar, but it is always crowded. The restaurant also is fairly noise. But, love the atmosphere.

    We chose Kenny's due to being listed as a participant on OpenTable in Dallas' Restaurant Week and we are glad we did! We had the fixed R.W. menu and each course was wonderful. The regular menu is a value for the high quality of the food. Our server Brittany was very good. I'm so glad to know that Kenny's is open for lunch as that's our normal big meal. We'll be back soon.

    Zack B our Server was one of the best I have ever had! Courteous, attentive without hovering, loves his job and was the best part of our dinning experience! -The beef is so tender a knife is not needed! -The noise level is such that I had a sore throat by the time I left just trying to carry on a conversation and HEAR my guest. -After the appetizer, the salad came out almost immediately! I doubt we each had more than two bites of salad when the entre was served. My guest and I each had four plates around us and we had not even finished the appetizer. We felt rushed, actually, like we were in the way, due to Restaurant Week perhaps? Cannot give it 5 stars due to all the food served at once and noise level.

    I heard of the place but thought it was another chain restaurant. My best friend her mother and I walked in first not knowing what we were going to walk into as the windows are dark shaed. To our surprise the ambiance was buzzing with a good crowd around the bar. Thankfully we ended up with Daniel our waiter and he was extremely attentive and charming The food was spectacular! He brought us their signature cheese bread and we order the adult Mac n Cheese. We ordered the steak with crab sauce and a side of cream spinach and the short ribs with a side of asparagus. So delicious I can't stop thinking about the food. I used to live in Dallas but visit often. I'll make sure to stop by when I'm in town again. Bravo to the Chef and Ownership.

    We went to a 5:30 dinner on a Saturday night to celebrate my mother-in-laws birthday. The reservations were easy to do. We arrived and were immediately seated. The waitress - Amber - was wonderful! She was very patient, customer service oriented, friendly and very talented in carrying the food and drinks!!! The pace of food disbursement was excellent. There was never a feeling of being rushed out; like so many other restaurants. The manager came over at one point to wish my mother-in-law a happy birthday and presented her with a token of appreciation. That was wonderful! She loved the attention. ;) Overall, the experience was a great one! I highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Had the coconut shrimp and ahi tuna nacho for appetizers, Filet and halibut for entrees. My new favorite place and less expensive compared to other high-end restaurants and steakhouses in Dallas. My only complaint was the restaurant was a bit noisy, but I suppose this is to be expected at a popular, crowded place. We will return very soon!
