A word from Lawry's The Prime Rib - Dallas
You'll know the moment you arrive that Lawry's The Prime Rib is an extraordinary restaurant. The signature Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef are aged 21 days, rock salt-roasted to perfection then carved to order tableside from shining silver carts. The famous Spinning Bowl Salad, whipped cream horseradish, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire Pudding and warm hospitality complete the experience that has landed Lawry's on countless "10 Best" lists and made it a dining legend since 1938.

    Unfortunately there was a table of kids near us which was slightly annoying, though they weren't horrible. Our dinner was, overall, the nicest evening out my husband and I have had in a long time. It's an hour's drive so we only come for restaurant week but we surely enjoy it. Mrs. Creole was a great server.

    My wife & I used to be regular corporate customers from several years ago (before the move) and then moved away...this was our 1st time back in several years. 1. Lobster Bisque was a big disappointment ...go have some at the Palm (Dallas West End) 2. We missed the "Ladies & their Uniforms", was served by a bunch of hairy faced foreign guys...not being prejudice here, just not the "Lawry Experience" we remembered. 3. Prime Rib was up to expectations ... good job!

    We have been dining at Lawry's since 1988 (yes 20 years) It is one of the finest Dining Facilities in all of Dallas. Their Prime Rib IS the BEST in Dallas (bar none). Service is outstanding , WINE list is superb, desert list exceptional. Very warm, rich atmosphere in the main dining room . They really do make your dining experience very special. They ALWAYS make us feel like VIP's !!!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/9/2008
    Lawry's was an awesome experience...very romantic and a wonderful place for a special occasion. Be specific when ordering and ask questions. I assumed wrongly that certain items were part of the meal, i.e, side dishes, and we paid an extra $10-15. In addition, if you are not a big eater, like me, ask for guidance there regarding prime rib you should order. I got the Lawry's cut, but that was way too much for me. They have a smaller portion for lighter apetites, but didn't emphasize that until after we ate.

    Service and food was not as good as usual. We were a bit disappointed, especially since they had gone up in price (fairly significantly). If they are going to raise prices (which I understand), then service and quality should definitely not drop off. Lawry's has been one of our top 3 places to eat in the last 5 years, but they slipped a bit after this visit.

We were there later in the evening after the busy dinner time had past so there were fewer patrons, but it was very uncomfortable. The food was excellent as always and the waiter was fine. But you could tell it was the end of the day and they were ready to leave for the evening.

The prime rib is outstanding and has spoiled us for other prime rib at other places. There summer specials attract our attention. This year we fell in love with the mahi mahi. This is our special date night place. We miss the sandwich side that used to be open in the evenings. The prime rib au jus was our personal favorite as well as the potato chips!

    Very nice Prime Rib although a little inconsistant at times lately; but we've been on many occasions over the years. I think portions are getting a little bit smaller. But, no worries really as this keeps the very reasonable prices in place. Fantastic personal service from a professional staff with a lot of teneure at this location. One of the best things about Lawry's is you can actaully carry on a conversation without shouting. Decent wine list and pricing with the house bottled selections a great find for price and performance. Been here a hundred times and will probably go another hundred. You will never have a bad meal or experience here.

Great consistent wait staff (we love Ms Hines); the hostess knew my name when I walk in (I don't know how). And cocnsistently perfect food - we always get the Prime Rib!

    This was one of many visits to Lawry's. On our arrival, we found the greet staff to be very attentive as usual. The service dropped off once we were seated at our table. Our waitress introduced herself and the carver, then brought our table drinks. The carver filled our plates and we didn't see our waitress until we were about half way through our meal. No one had served our Yorkshire Pudding - something we always look forward to at Lawry's. When our waitress finally returned to our table, we actually had to ask for the pudding. Needless to say, our visit this time was a little disappointing.

    we had a nice dinner out with friends. Due to the casual dining problem everywhere- Lawry's is more of a neighborhood restaurant to us than a special occasion place. The staff from the maitre'/ general manager/ bartenders and waitresses are all very knowledgeable and friendly. For a foodie- the presentation of the food needs to be kicked up a notch or two.It is all very basic. It is close to my husband's office and he likes going there for lunch with clients.We will definitely go back- it is close to our home also.

    We especially liked our (seasoned) waitress who is amicable and took the time to make sure we were all very happy. We also loved that every person working there took extra effort in making sure our very picky diner had the steak done to his liking. I noticed too that several people came by our table to ask how we were doing. Great service! All the entrees that we tried were very good, except the 'toad in the hole' was extremely salty. It was so salty, it took away from the flavor of the dish, and rendered it almost unedible. Other than that dish, everything else was mouth-watering good.
