    Excelent food, service, and overall experience was great! It's a tad pricy but not too bad. It's worth the extra $20 or $30$ a person compared to the average restaurant! Great for special occasions, or if you're just in the mood for an above average dining experience and looking to spend a little more for Excelent tasting food and over the top service Lawry's is the place to go! The dining room is magnificent, small in size but great in detail! A great restaurant for any party between 2-6 people. You definitely recieve the value for what you pay.

    We had previously dined at Lawry's in Chicago and were wowed by the atmosphere, the food and the presentation. The Dallas location was just as good. Our entire group enjoyed their dinner and, particularly, the prime rib, the salads and the desserts. You rarely find prime rib like this anymore. The service was attentive and helpful with their willingness to answer our questions and make recommendations.

    I have been going to Lawry's for about 50 years! First with my parents in the Beverly Hills location then now to the Dallas one. While we don't eat a lot of beef, when we have an anniversary, birthday or want to entertain some friends, Lawry's is a first choice because the prime rib is the best in the world! The service is always excellent, the ambiance is elegant, and it feels like a mini-retreat unlike most loud and crowded restaurants these daysi. I will continue to go especially for festive events and we have introduced our grandchildren who will carry on the tradition we are sure! Lastly, I love their rewards program and look forward to receiving the certificates.

    The family has been to the Beverly Hills location numerous times and we were in Dallas for the weekend so what better then to celebrate at belated birthday at the restaurant we go to for most birthdays and various other celebrations. It was like we never left home. The service, the spinning salad, the prime rib and all the fixings. We loved it. The only difference is there were mostly male waiters the night we went vs the Beverly Hills location which is virtually all female. It did not matter, we were there for the food and it hit the mark as expected.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants. Lobster bisque and cream of broccoli and cheddar soup were both delicious! This is the ONLY place in DFW that we will get Prime rib! It's just that good! The spinning salad is a must too.....just bc it's tradition for us! It is a great salad though....beets are a nice touch and the dressing is good! Service is always professional and very friendly too! LOVE THIS PLACE!

    Most everything was really fine as usual. This was a church affair, paid dinner. When the bill came, it had tax on it. The TX Comptroller's letter I had was not acceptable to the corporate HQ in CA. I have never had it rejected before at restaurants or hotels. This was confusing. The manager was nice, but unable to change the corporate direction. She showed the form they need. I found it and am in the process of sending it in. I emailed an unsigned version and received confirmation that it is what they need. Well, what IS confusing is that the form has NOTHING on it that was not on the letter from the TX Comptroller's office I had presented. This makes no sense to me, but I am following the rules for you

    My husband and I have been going to Lawry's for more than 20 years and we have seen a lot of changes. Last Wednesday evening we dined again to find more changes! Our meal started with a shrimp cocktail which was very good. However, things soon went downhill....... I ordered the Lawry's cut prime rib and my husband ordered the filet, cooked medium rare. After 30 minutes he said the steak was almost ready. 20 minutes later he said the kitchen was trying to cook it just right. Finally, the meal was served and it was poor. My prime rib was so tough I could not cut it with a steal knife!!!! We took the meat home and finally threw it away. It will be a while till we are going back again..

    Prime Rib: excellent, as expected! Spinning Salad Bowl: horrible. Needs iceberg and ONLY a small amount of Romaine plus other condiments included. Could not taste the wonderful dressing. In better times, the Yorkshire pudding was very fresh from the grill, if not cooked table-side. The small pan grill yielded a very dry-like-bread item. Huge disappointment. For a Monday night, the place was doing well, but service was very slow.

    Lawry's leaves a lot to be desired. For a Dallas area steakhouse, the service was akin to an Applebee's and the steaks over cooks and side items forgotten by the wait staff. Other than being overdone, the steaks were flavorful and the wine selection and wine pricing were in line with my expectations. At the end of the day, if you're looking to drop several hundred dollars on a meal try one of the many other top notch steak houses in the DFW area.

    Been to this Dallas Lawry's location numerous times. It never fails! Best Food, Service, and Class. They have expanded the menu a bit over the last couple of years including other things besides Prime Rib & Steaks. The Red Snapper was especially good this past weekend. Plenty of options for those who like a diet w/o the delicious Prime rib or Steaks-a must have-the SPINNING BOWL salad! Its has been done like this since 1938. Lot's of Ala Carte options including some of the best glazed carrots we've ever had. But don't ever forget this place is about the Chefs who prepare the most delicious Prime Rib around. You will not be disappointed we promise. We have tried numerous other places in Dallas but we just keep coming back here.

    Confusing with how to order lunch. Meat go to line, salads made at table & sandwiches somewhere in between. Not sure I received the sandwich ordered as on the board said it came with a side, at the counter sides are extra -- confusing. Also, sandwich (prime rib) was very dry and mostly bread. At Lawry's didn't expect to have carry my own plate and work to figure out how to order something -- would be helpful to have instructions printed out for someone to read at the table. Won't go back for a lunch.
