A word from Kenny's Wood Fired Grill
Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

    I heard of the place but thought it was another chain restaurant. My best friend her mother and I walked in first not knowing what we were going to walk into as the windows are dark shaed. To our surprise the ambiance was buzzing with a good crowd around the bar. Thankfully we ended up with Daniel our waiter and he was extremely attentive and charming The food was spectacular! He brought us their signature cheese bread and we order the adult Mac n Cheese. We ordered the steak with crab sauce and a side of cream spinach and the short ribs with a side of asparagus. So delicious I can't stop thinking about the food. I used to live in Dallas but visit often. I'll make sure to stop by when I'm in town again. Bravo to the Chef and Ownership.

    Our first visit was an evening meal two weeks prior and the noise level was a bit more than we anticipated but everything else was so wonderful, we barely noticed it after a while! Brunch on the second visit at 11:00 a.m. was quiet, relaxing, attentive in every way and delicious beyond description! What a pleasure to dine here, we will return for another awesome experience!

    We went to a 5:30 dinner on a Saturday night to celebrate my mother-in-laws birthday. The reservations were easy to do. We arrived and were immediately seated. The waitress - Amber - was wonderful! She was very patient, customer service oriented, friendly and very talented in carrying the food and drinks!!! The pace of food disbursement was excellent. There was never a feeling of being rushed out; like so many other restaurants. The manager came over at one point to wish my mother-in-law a happy birthday and presented her with a token of appreciation. That was wonderful! She loved the attention. ;) Overall, the experience was a great one! I highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    Food was delicious and the service was outstanding. Had the coconut shrimp and ahi tuna nacho for appetizers, Filet and halibut for entrees. My new favorite place and less expensive compared to other high-end restaurants and steakhouses in Dallas. My only complaint was the restaurant was a bit noisy, but I suppose this is to be expected at a popular, crowded place. We will return very soon!

    I have been to Kenny's four times: twice for lunch and twice for dinner. All times the food and service were excellent. If I could have any complaint at all, it is only that this last Thursday it was pretty loud, which I hadn't had problems with before even on Saturday night. Nothing unbareable and conversation was still easily manageable. But what can you do when everyone in town wants to eat at Kenny's every night of the week?

    I love the Kenny's Restaurants. The Wood Fired Grill is a favorite of mine for business lunches. The food is carefully prepared, and is a exemplified in each bite. The services is attentive and the food delicious. Some of my favorites include the Kimberly's Chicken Salad, Clam Chowder and Fish specials.

    We went on a Sun. evening for our anniversary dinner. The place was full but they had our table ready for us and seated us immediately. Lynn, our server, was very pleasant and helpful. Brought our wine right away and salads were about 5 min. later. Did not wait long for our dinner. Both our plates were delicious. I had the redfish and my hubs had the tuna steak. Definitely recommend both. For dessert we had the creme brulee and bread pudding. The creme brulee was not as creamy as we like, but still very good. Loved the bread pudding. To top off our evening, the mgr., Derek I think, brought us a gift card to use on our next visit. We will definitely be back. Want to try the hamburgers we keep hearing about.

    We went to Kenny's to catch up with a friend who has been living out of town. We ordered the Tenderloin Crostini as an appetizer and it was AMAZING. The Texas Mule was different, yet delightful. There are simply no words to describe the entrees we ordered as they were beyond words (I fully suggest the Beef Short Rib, Chilean Sea Bass, and the Salmon. The atmosphere was dark, but intimate. Noise level was high enough to let you know you're at a hot spot, but low enough that you can enjoy your conversation. The service was impeccable. I wouldn't have the money to eat like this every night, but when an occasion presents itself I'll definitely be suggesting a return trip to Kenny's!

    The server told us the restaurant is known for its food and its service. We could request the kitchen to make anything we'd like and they would do it. We ordered off the menu, but the food was great, and the service was exceptional. The only criticism is the noise factor. Kenny's appears to be a local favorite - it was a Thursday night dinner at 6pm. Will return again soon.

We ordered the rib eyes and chicken dishes and all four of us were extremely satisfied with the flavors, portion sizes and the correct temperature of our steaks.

    This restaurant was a little pricey, but the service was excellent. I am allergic to gluten, and our server made sure that I was provided with gluten-free options. He was very helpful with recommendations, and took care of us very well through our dining experience. The food is excellent, though I like the prices for their lunch menu a little better than the dinner menu.

    This was my wife's 1st experience at Kennys. We had a reservation and they were running a little late. They gave us a free appetizer for waiting and from then on used our name. Eric was our waiter and he was incredible by giving great advice on food items and managing the time of our meal appropriately. We had the house salad, pork tenderloin, shrimp & scallops, and the beyond awesome rolls. Our overall comment was that we need to come back real quick to experience it again. The whole experience was one of the better meals and service we have had anywhere and we eat out 2 to 3 days a week as well as out of town and consider ourselves foodies. They even had numerous bourbon options including great knowledge.

    Kenny's has one thing on tap...chilled Grey Goose Vodka. Great bottled beer selection and amazing cocktails. Before the food...service. The servers were highly attentive and we never wanted for anything. They brought out chilled glasses midway through our drinks and swapped glasses to keep our drinks chilled. Two must haves...lobster truffle deviled eggs and the Mac & Cheese side. I had steak and my wife had the chili prawns. The steak was excellent. The prawns were amazing and came with a pistachio encrusted goat cheese and guacamole. This was one of the best meals we have had in a very long time.

    Was traveling through Dallas and, after 6 months, had to come back to my old haunt. Fabulous rib-eye as usual, my friend had the pork chop after my recommendation and he loved it. Another had something else, I forget, and he loved it too. The popovers are wonderful and the service was top notch. I'll keep coming back as long as things don't change!
