Contemporary American
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.

We went for Sunday Brunch as some people in our party wanted breakfast and others wanted a heavy lunch. Everyone was extremely pleased - great French toast and eggs Benedict, great filet, and great burger!

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and they truly made it an enjoyable experience! You don’t get service like this everywhere and the food is absolutely delicious!! Portions are good reat drinks are consistent and the fresh cold glasses are the best. The little details make this one of our most favorite restaurant. Every experience here is consistently wonderful!

This was our first time at Kenny's and we were seated immediately, the dining are is not that large and we weren't sure about the noise level or music playing, it turned out to be a non issue with the experience. Although the appetizers looked great, we opted to not overdo it and ordered our entree's immediately without appetizers. I had a wedge salad that I didn't regret. The salad was perfect size and the flavors blended perfectly with blue cheese, bacon, tomato, onion and dressing. I read reviews about the pork chop and from the first bite, it was clear the flavor from the grill set this apart from what you would expect from a pork chop, it was fantastic, I had the Bubbies potato cakes as the side and enjoyed the unique way of having a potato side, my better half had the special of the day with Scallops and risotto, the scallops were a hit and the risotto was pleasant, not the best we have had but enjoyable. Asparagus and spinach sides are worth doing, they are created to be unique and are an unexpected flavor addition that topped off incredible entree's. We were full but celebrating a birthday our waiter, who was attentive and thorough, suggested the peanut butter pie, I have to say that this in itself is worth going back for and making sure to leave room for desert, best pie ever..

Amazing food and exceptional service! My husband ordered the pork chop and said it was the best he’s ever had; I ordered the chicken and loved it! It was flavorful and delicious! They also were great with my gluten allergy and had so many gluten free choices. Will definitely dine here again if I ever return to Dallas!

We go to Kenny’s every year during our annual trip to Dallas. It never disappoints! Food is amazing, servers and staff are always gracious and the atmosphere is great. On one of our visits my husband asked for a Mountain Dew which they don’t have, the waiter surprised him with a Mountain Dew that they had run across the street to grab at a convenience store...talk about service!!! We keep going back every year and dream about the food in between each visit.

Disclaimer: My experience may have been skewed by raised expectations based on Yelp reviews.

The Good:
The crab cake was definitely a treat - the remoulade was outstanding.
Saving grace: my waiter (while I cannot recall his name) - he made the suggestion of an espresso martini (Which was expertly done) and voila the evening was salvaged.

The Bad:
My entree was lackluster and uninspiring.
The oysters were horrendous.
The lack of an espresso machine to help me forget the bad parts was almost unforgivable.

The Neutral:
The adult mac and cheese was halfway there, the hint of rosemary while not overpowering was both present and pleasant, sadly the bechamel was a thin and ruined the experience


I would have to try the entire menu at some point to see what other hits or misses exist - but in my opinion the service is above par and with the exception of the crab cake the food is not where I would like it to be. However, the service staff can and will help you to find the good parts of the experience (after all, that is what really matters).

Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is always a favorite. The food, service and ambiance (even if a bit loud) make this one of the places I wish was closer to us. Some very good wine deals can be found on their list...just a few dollars over retail.

My main tip is to reserve your table well in advance of when you want to go...and then enjoy!

Kenny's is fantastic. It's cozy and upscale, but not stuffy by any means. The waitstaff goes above and beyond to provide an excellent experience. And the food is absolutely amazing. You won't go wrong with any item on the menu. Come here for an excellent date night, it'll be great.

Great food, excellant service as is standard here. Nikki was our server tonight and did an outstanding job. Have added a couple new items to the menu. I had (new item) bacon wrapped shrimp stuffed with asparagus served with a bri dipping sauce & a warm raspberry dipping sauce and a choice of a side item. It was as good as it sounds. Shrimp were huge. A must try for shrimp lovers. Starting with the wonderful popover & side house salad made sure I came home with left overs. 😉

We have been to Kenny's many times and this was the first time that our food was not great. In fact, we had to spit out our oysters because they didn't taste right (and we always order them). Also there was some kind of a hard, almost rock-like little gray thing in my oyster that I'm pretty sure would have cracked my tooth had I not removed it quickly. We just decided not eat the rest of them because we were in a hurry. Then they brought out our steaks, which we also always order, and they were both overcooked. Our waiter was great, but we usually go to Kenny's because it's so consistent, and I'm not sure when we'll be eating there again. For what they charge, there is no excuse for the food to be prepared so badly. We filled out the comment page with all of this when we paid our bill, but haven't heard anything from Kenny's in the past week.

Wonderful food and service! The quality of meat easily compares to many high end steak houses in the area without the ridiculously high prices. Fairly loud around the bar and main dining area however seating at the high tables was less noisy and enjoyable.

Food and service outstanding. Very friendly “happening” place. Bar area is packed but bartenders and patrons sitting at bar very helpful in getting drinks for customers not sitting. It is a small restaurant so noise level is high but the food, service and congeniality make up for the noise. We loved it!
