Lawry's The Prime Rib - Chicago
Iconic gem!I had no idea that the name behind behind the spices also had a restaurant. This place has an amazing story and they back it up with quality. The food was delicious. We got the steak, but I wish we had ordered the prime rib. It looked like everyone was ordering that and loving it. I watched them cut the rib and they were gigantic cuts. Each entree came with salad, sweet bread and potatoes side so it's tons of food. We shared and loved. I also loved the uniforms for the staff. I look forward to returning!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful MealHadn't been there for a few years even though it's one of our favorite restaurants. Everything was perfect. The service was great. The food was wonderful. Making reservations to go back in a couple of weeks with friends.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent prime rib, we wereExcellent prime rib, we were placed near the service entrance so there was always somebody or something going by. We were seated promptly, at the time of our reservation.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper restaurant!This restaurant reminded me of Simpsons on the Strand in London but with better beef. Elegant and traditional and delicious. We are going back for lunch.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been there severalI have been there several times, but this was the first time for my children, all now in their 20's.
I think we may have created LAWRY'S customers for life.
They loved it, from the uniforms, ambience, special martinis, and OH MY!!! THE FOOD.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AM30th wedding anniversaryMy wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves during our recent dinner at Lawrys. The service from Miss Noelle was exceptional. The food was delicious, and the flowers that I ordered through your website were delivered on time and every bit as beautiful as the picture. We will definitely come back.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDifferent take on steak.Lawry's (of spice fame) puts a succulent prime rib on the table, with excellent sides. The carvers come to your table and you get your cut prepared right there, in full view. Wine list was good, house beer tasty, and they had good selections for our non-beef eating guests. Was a great trip for a company dinner of 6.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMImpress your dinner guestsLawry's is a must if you are in Chicago. The service is impeccable and the food is exquisite. The prime rib is carved right at your table. This is a terrific place for that special occation. Lawry's loyalty program will make you want to return. They have two dining experiences - one on the formal dining room and another near the bar, the Ale & Sandwich Bar, which is open for lunch or dinner. You can order the same menu items at the bar area as in the formal dining room, but at the bar you can also order sandwiches, which are the best in town! I usually get the prime rib, which comes with salad, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding (puff pastry), and horseradish. Compare this with most steak restaurants where everything is ala cart.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA good place for out-of-townA good place for out-of-town dinners. Consistently good food and good service. The wait staff is very friendly but not pushy.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLawry's - Definite Must Meat LoversGREAT service, the food was amazing - had the prime rib & filet. Shrimp cocktail tasted like it had just been caught & cooked. Wine list was amazing and waitress knew her wines & gave us great suggestions.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and good foodFood is the same great prime rib.
Service was very good, although the attendant was over-zealous.
He tried his best, although a little more privacy was needed.
We felt more intrusion than satisfaction.
I will definitely recommend to friends.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience as alwaysLawry,s is one of my favourite places. I always try to attend when in Chicago.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticI was really amazed at the ancient setting. It was like something from a movie. You don't see waitresses and cook actually dressed in uniforms that are distinguishable. I was very impressed with the singing from the waitress as well. She has a beautiful voice. The food blew me out of the water. It was seasoned to perfection.
Great Job Lawrys!!!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Special NightObserving a special occasion is made even more special by dining at Lawry's. Of course we had the prime rib for dinner, who doesn't while in the capitol for prime rib. Our server was a delight, her name was Mary D. You cannot go wrong here.
Many thanks to Lawry's.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeOur eating experience was exceptional! Whenever I get the chance to be in Chicago, Lawrys is top on the list! I always leave room for dessert!! The chocolate bag- OMG!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe didn't get the opera singer,We didn't get the opera singer, but my mother's 86th birthday dinner was a good time anyway. The menu is not large, but we went for prime rib so there was NO problem. The service was excellent and the food was great. The ONLY problem is we couldn't afford to eat here often.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLawry's...Best Prime Rib in ChicagoOnce again Lawry's does not disappoint. Their specialty is prime rib, but I see they added rib eye steak to their menu. None of us ordered the rib eye, since we were there for the prime rib. The side dishes were delectable and the chocolate cake for dessert melts in your mouth. The wait staff was very attentive as well as management on the floor. I would highly recommend Lawry's to my friends going to Chicago.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great placeVery professional server, always great food, love the coffee (wish they would bag it). Brought someone who'd never been there before. Clearly impressed. Thank you!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA Quaint Memory of Times Gone ByBig meat, a bygone sense of style, and a benevolent fustiness permeate this old fashioned bastion of beef. The food's tasty but you're really paying for a show. And the show ain't cheap! If you're looking for gourmet fine dining you might be better off somewhere else. If it's reliable, showy, and pretty tasty roast beef you owe it to yourself to do it at least once.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA classicthree business partners over 50, hungry and looking for outstanding prime rib. All expectations met. A secure bet.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary CelebrationWe celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary here on Saturday night. Everything was Excellent.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely evening at Lawry's!Lovely evening at Lawry's! Our waitress was obviously that she would rather be anywhere else than waiting on us but the food and ambiance were outstanding!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceWe do not usually dine in "high end" restaurants, so this was a real treat for us. It was my wife's 55th birthday, and she LOVES prime rib, so this was an easy choice. Everything was perfect-the wine, food, service, dessert. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a classy place to eat.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic, but funSome say the atmosphere is dated, but I like the traditional approach to prime rib! The service is great, and the food is good. We had 3 teens with us, and they loved the desserts as well as the main entree-prime rib. . The sides are yummy--especially the creamed spinach. Wine selections are reasonable. Location is easy and fun to stroll after that big meal! Christmas is special at Lawrys!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat time - great food!!We enjoyed a fantastic dinner with outstanding service. The atmosphere was great and a wonderful place to celebrate a special occassion. HIGHLY recommend.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Anniversary DinnerLawry's never disappoints. Aside from the outstanding prime rib, we always look forward to the "spinning salad", and we always bring home extra bottles of the Vintage Salad Dressing. Delicious!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe 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 AMThe best in ChicagoWe always always always have the finest dining experience ever. It is an experience I think about for weeks afterward. The meal is expensive but makes a superior case for You get what you pay for. We come for special occasions whenever we can.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 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 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 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 AM
