Lawry's The Prime Rib - Chicago
The Roast with the Most!I visit Lawry's every time I come to Chicago.
I love the old world surroundings together with the great food makes it a most enjoyable experience.
See you next time.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMService at it's finest.Excellent Service and food. The staff worked as a team to provide this kind of service which is what I enjoyed experiencing.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish!!!This restaurant is fortune 500 all the way! The ambiance is outstanding and so is the food and staff. The prime rib was succulent and juicy! I had enough to eat for dinner the next day! I love this place and it is ideal for romance, fine dining and impressing a special someone.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is THE place for Prime RibWhat an extraordinary experience Lawry's is. From the moment you walk in, you know you will have an outstanding meal with great service. The Prime Rib is perfect every time. The spinning salad bowl is always entertaining. This place is a Chicago classic and not to be missed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Prime RibIf one likes a great prime rib then this is the place for you. The dinner starts with their famous spinning salad, a show in itself, then there is a selection of cuts of prime rib, from the smallest to the humongous. A side of Yorkshire pudding accompanies the dinner which is great for soaking up the juice. The ambiance is like dining in an English club. A wonderful experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!!!!!Well, we spent another Mother's Day with my wife and MIL at Lawry's and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and service could not have been any better. The ladies even received a free jar of CC's hot fudge sauce as a Mother's Day gift, which made my wife very happy. My Mom (from S.C.) is so jealous that we will be going again in August when she comes to town.
One thing to note that is new to the menu are a couple of steak options (rib eye & filet), which will help satisfy those that (God forbid) don't care for prime rib.
All I can say is try Lawry's, you won't regret it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMemorable evening!The service was impeccable, the food delicious and the atmosphere was energetic. It was a very special occasion and this was the perfect restaurant to celebrate it! Their signature salad was great, my halibut was amazing, my daughters filet was perfect. My husband and son had the prime rib and it was just ok, they had a bone cut which wasn't to their liking.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMVery SatisfyingThe food was great! Service is amazing! The entire experience there was unforgettable!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat as always!I've been going to Lawry's for 35 years and the Prime Rib just can't be beat!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food for non foodiesI have been coming here for years with special people who are not familiar with good roast beef. normally the food is good. this time it was fabulous, and i do not exaggerate. I prefer to eat the beef ribs and they were superb. so was the lobster. Even the pop-over.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways GoodWe have always enjoyed the service and food at Lawry's. We just celebrated our 36 wedding anniversary at the restaurant.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBest of the bestEvery time I am in Chicago, this is a must dining experience. I have taken clients, friends and family there. Each and every time the food has been world class, the service outstanding. I was a young man when I first went to Lawrys in the early 80's I have been returning ever since. I have never been disappointed. Anyone who has never dined here has something truly memorable missing in their lives.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSensationalFood, service and atmosphere were all superb. Prime Rib was cooked perfectly. Definitely in the mix for the best prime rib in Chicago.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways fabulousWe haven't been to Lawry's in a few years and am glad we returned. The food and the service were excellent, as usual.
Nice to see this gem sparkle with the recent renovation.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat prime rib as alwaysWe felt the "traditional" or "classic" waitress garb actually looks outdated and out of place in a classy restaurant like Lawry's, but the service and food were excellent.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Prime Rib in ChicagoFor the best Prime Rib, go to Lawry's. Food, service, and ambiance is hard to beat in the city or suburbs. Book now and enjoy!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMtraditions never dieWalking into Lawry's, you can see that not much has changed in the time that they've been doing business. The waitresses go by "Ms....." instead of first names, wear (I'm guessing) the same uniforms they've always worn, and the men walk around with their large meat carts. The food was absolutely delicious and we enjoyed every bite. Our waitress explained what all the spices/sauces were on the table- and told us to use them (more of a demand than a suggestion, actually). The only complaint was that it was pretty loud in the dining room.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGREAT RESTAURANT!My wife and I had dinner there this past Saturday night. We had the best prime rib either of us has ever had. Or waitress cindy was second to none and the manager (overseeing the particular room we were in) was incredibly hospitable. We will quickly become regulars because of of overall dining experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic, no better primeFantastic, no better prime rib anywhere! I would definitely recommend.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe prime rib was succulentThe prime rib was succulent and the table side carving and spinning salad make for an enjoyable experience for first time customers and returning guests as well. The cream corn is exceptional and the extensive wine list ensures you will find something that fits your preference as well as your budget.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLawry's Exceeds Expectations!The food was unbelievable. It reminded me of the days when fine dining consisted of wonderfully well prepared and abundant basics, like creamed spinich, ambrosial prime rib, chocolate cream pie that could not be consumed without making yummy noises. The service is silver and china. The waitstaff is attentive and respectful. The resturant itself has a long history in Chicago, and is worth a look on its own merits. "A Chicago treasure since 1974, Lawry's The Prime Rib is located in the heart of the Magnificent Mile. It occupies the 1890's McCormick Mansion that became the renowned Kungsholm Puppet Theatre."4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGo for the prime rib DiamondGo for the prime rib Diamond cut. Pricy, but the meat alone is worth it!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AM10th Anniversary DinnerThis restaurant is a gem if you are in the mood for Prime Rib. It is by far the best Prime Rib I have ever tasted. The staff and service is exceptional and goes that extra distance to make the meal just that much more enjoyable. The trademark "spinning salad" is just the beginning of an excellent dining experience. We enthusiastically recommend this restaurant to any and all who might be celebrating a special occasion. It is a bit more expensive than a normal steakhouse, but the quality of the product justifies it.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOld School at its best!Love this restaurant. It's a classic. The staff has been there forever and they take pride in their jobs and restaurant. The food is amazing. Have the prime rib, it is a must.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA night to remember!My wife and I had an excellent time of it! Ms. Rivkin even sang to us (it was our anniversary.)

If you do not want prime rib, go someplace else. They do have one or two other entrees if you happen to have one in your party who won't eat beef. Your menu choice is how large and how well done do you want your rib. They have some great side dishes of various veggies including a baked potatoe that will feed the whole table. I usually stick to the mashed potato with that great juice from the ribs on top and mop it all up with the Yorkshire pudding to leave a spotless plate.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is expensive, but veryIt is expensive, but very nice. It is a must for beef lovers!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTheir prime rib is still theTheir prime rib is still the best, and a pretty good value for what you get.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMReally great Prime Rib.

Aczent Graphic Technologies4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFine dining esperienceOur dinner at Lawry's was wonderful. We recognized out waitress and she remembered us which was very nice. Our waitress and the servers were all very friendly and accommodating. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and he was offered a birthday
dessert. We had a lovely, memorable evening in a fine dining establishment that has been recently redecorated and looked great.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was over-the-topEverything was over-the-top outstanding! It would be hard to imagine a better piece of Prime Rib. My wife made particular comment about the Au Gratin potatoes; I had mashed potatoes with gravy, which sounds boring, but was anything but - it was high quality and very tasty. The deserts were memorable.
Our server was very professional, and always knew when to be friendly and when to allow us to converse undisturbed. The entire staff was attentive and courteous.
Last summer my wife and I had lunch at Lawry's for my birthday, and that was also outstanding.
Lawry's is a very traditional restaurant. You will not find innovative cuisine here, just the best of what they have served since the 1970's. If you want the finest, this is the place.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food with very goodExcellent food with very good service. The Prime Rib was outstanding and the sides were perfectly matched.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I came to ChicagoMy husband and I came to Chicago for a mini vacation and Lawry's was our first choice for a great meal and wonderful night out!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFit for FoodiesHad dinner here 3 April 13. The decor and setting was excellent and fitting for the type of dining experience. For a prime rib house the set is the same. They bring the salad to your table on ice, spin it and add dressing while spinning. The salad wasn't very good, very limited type of greens and way too much dressing. The prime rib carts come around to serve you table side. I chose the biggest prime rib medium well. The meat tasted okay. It wasn't that cold and it could have used a little more seasoning and it was under cooked, almost medium rare to rare towards the bone. I opted for the cream corn with my meal and the Yorkshire pudding. Both were good. I was too full to order a desert. It's a good place to enjoy dinner. I would come aga4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMservices in sestaurant wasservices in sestaurant was awesome, but valet park was also very polite4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful meal, staffHad a wonderful meal, staff was great, our waitress Miss Hodges was a very informative and pleasant waitperson.

Our server, Miss Rogers, was so courteous and professional. Two in our party had not yet dined at Lawry's and they were pleasantly surprised by the presentation of the prime rib oven coming to the table as well as the spinning salad, etc. One ordered the filet mignon, a new item on the menu, and said it was one of the best filets he has ever had. Miss Rogers surprised the birthday boy with a layered strawberry custard dessert, candle and all. Entire evening was wonderful.....what we always experience at this landmark institution! Looking forward to seeing the new bar area, which is under construction.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMIdeal for anyone looking forIdeal for anyone looking for a exquisite dinner in Chicago.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy family (5 of us) all enjoyedMy family (5 of us) all enjoyed the food, service, and ambiance.
