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.

    Simply the finest prime rib in all of Dallas...salads cool, crisp, colorful...unlimited wine and beverage list....deserts to die for. Service is supernatural starting with Steve (The General Manager) to the hostesses , to the wait staff and the bus staff (who cater to your every need). We celebrated our daughter's big promotion . It's a dining experience you will truly treasure.

    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

    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.

    Lawry's is a wonderful place to go for a special occasion. The steaks were delicious and cooked perfectly to our specifications. The sides were also delicious. The mushrooms were the best I've ever had. We enjoyed our meal thoroughly. The wait staff and hostess were attentive and so professional.

    Our waiter was terrible. She got every stage of our meal wrong. She was impossible to find when we need her to fix things. We got the wrong salads, wrong sides and things were never corrected. She seemed to forget about us. The manager came by when we were waiting for the bill. The manager processed our payment. We never saw the waiter again after for the bill.

    Our dinner was lovely. Everyone, from the car valet, the hostess, our 2 waiters and the man who refilled our waters were very friendly and attentive. The bourbon cocktail, while not my choice of brand, was nevertheless smooth. We both opted for 8 oz. filet mignonette and they were wonderful and cooked exactly as we like our steaks. I wish they would buy locally is my only suggestion for improvent.

    My husband and I dined here for our first anniversary on September 27th. This was my first visit and I was very impressed. Our waiter was very personable and helpful. I was having difficulty trying to find a wine that I liked and he made several recommendations. Unfortunately, I did not like any of the ones he brought me, but he was so patient and polite. The food was outstanding! The setting was perfect for our anniversary and it was nice to sit down and not be rushed through a meal and out the door. I look forward to dining here again!

    You will never go wrong at Lawry's, and I have been so spoiled that I would never eat prime rib anywhere else except Lawry's. Now, top that off with the spinning salad and the yorkshire pudding, and I always leave extremely satisfied. The flavors linger on the palate for a very long time.

    We love the prime rib at Lawry's, but be careful if you order anything other than the prime rib. Several times now we've brought in large parties and whenever someone orders something other than the prime rib, their food is always delayed. Some of the servers are good about remembering to turn orders for pork, lamb or salmon and wait until it is done, but the other night for my parents anniversary the waiter didn't turn in the order and then served everyone at the table and my father had to wait until dessert for a meal because they rushed his lamb, which was raw when he got it and they had to put it back on the grill to finish it and it seemed to take forever. I picked Lawry's but will reconsider the next time we have a family event.

    Food not seasoned or hot enough. Was really looking forward to going there with fiancé that had never been there and was completely disappointed. I hate to tell you but prime rib at Houstons is much better. I hadn't been there very recently and it truly wasn't nearly as good as it used to be. One of my daughters said the last time she was there for supper it also wasn't that good. We had gone there because we had gotten our marriage license that day and really didn't enjoy our meal. Sorry

    The food was great, but the service was even better. Our waiter, Mr. Thompson was exceptional, answering all questions and making sure that we were served well. The entire staff pitched in, bringing additional drinks, to-go boxes, anything that you could possibly think of. The setting was nice and there were a lot of additional "nice touches." The prime rib is served in a large silver cart and carved tableside. The salmon was DELICIOUS, as were the mashed potatoes and asparagus. Wasn't crazy about the crab cakes, but that could just be my personal taste preference. Couldn't have improved on the salmon dish, prime rib or the service though.

    Lawry's is a great venue for an anniversary or other milestone occasion. The venue is old school with hard woods and deep colors. The food and service were excellent! I will definitely return again as they meet the mark every single time. If you are entertaining younger clients, this is not the for them as this is a more mature venue.

    Once again, the food was outstanding. Lobster bisque very good. Lobster tail trio perfect. Prime rib, soft flavorful and done perfectly. Hot fudge sundae huge, cheesecake excellent. Service was a little slow between courses, especially waiting for the desserts which should have had minimal wait. We were seated in a comfortable, plush booth but several times there was banging on the wall behind our booth that made us wonder if we were in a bowling alley.

    I've been to Lawry's over 20 times this year, but this visit for me, was a let down. My Prime Rib was cold, dry and over cooked but my family's food was spot on. Because of my previous experience at this location, I plan to return because all my other visits were 5 stars, this was a very high 2.

Although the server was ok, he was far from the best. Prime rib ... perfect. potatoes ... perfect. Salads were very nice as well. If you dessert, the Creme Brule is good.

    My wife and I make it a point to come to Lawrys every Labor Day weekend when we visit Dallas. This visit, we were 30 minutes late. Our fault, but upon our arrival, the hostess's couldnt seem to care. They told us the wait for a table would be "a few minutes" which turned out to be an additional 30+ minutes. After being seated, the the waitress seemed overtaxed (too many tables, too few staff?). We ordered souffle's at the beginning of the meal and waited 15+ minutes after the end of the meal (over an hour for two persons) and when the souffles did arrive, they were severely undercooked. The explaination that was given was that the kitchen was so busy that the oven temperature was affected by the door being open so often. Duh?
