About 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.

The servers are very well versed on the menu and know how to space out and deliver at a very timely rate the meal. Food is always consistent and very well prepared.
The noise level is over the top, not a good place for a quiet dinner. Maybe they should consider adding a little more room in the bar as well as the dining room. I'm not looking for quiet place but don't need to know the total conversation of the table next to me.

We chose Kenny's to have dinner with my husband's brother and wife who were in town from San Antonio. They had eaten at Pappas Bros Steakhouse the night before and were happy to see menu items that were less $ but just as delicious. Ex. lobster mac n cheese. Ordered fried calamari & lobster deviled eggs for appetizers. Entrees ordered were the lobster bisque, steak and crab cake with hollandaise sauce w asparagus, chicken and a bacon cheeseburger. Everything was really tasty, cooked and presented well. RSVP is required unless you are going in really early or really late in the evening.

Kenny’s Wood Fire Grill is very popular and difficult to get a spontaneous reservation so plan in advance. Only 1/3 of the restaurant is available for walk ins which result in long wait times. That said, it is just an OK dining experience. The wait staff both times has been excellent. The pork ribs were very average. The steaks are offered with a variety of toppings, cheeses, sauses, mushrooms etc to mask the average quality beef.

There are many other choices at a 10% higher price point that deliver a 90% better dining experience.

Love this place and the service is always exceptional. I had a brunch item that had diced pork in it. The pork was very dry for some reason. The oil used left a film in my mouth. Typically the food is amazing

This was my first visit at Kenny's and I really enjoyed my time there! My grandmother and I made a reservation for dinner (6:45) and went about an hour ahead of time to sit at the bar - no such luck, it was packed! We ended up leaving then coming back for our dinner. I am gluten free, so the waiter brought me WARM gluten free bread before my meal (I've never had this happen before). I ordered the chicken with Brussel sprouts on the side - SO GOOD! To drink, I had the l'orange martini. I highly recommend everything above!

We have eaten at all of the Kenny’s restaurants. Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill falls short of the others in quality of meal overall. The French Onion Soup, the bread, and the drinks were very good. The New York Strip is where my meal fell woefully short. The cut of meat was very tough and lacked in flavor. Comparing to other grills and steakhouses similar in price, Kenny’s doesn’t stack up. If you’re going to make steaks your staple, then you need to hit a home run every time. The ambience will possibly warrant another chance.

I have been to Kenny’s Wood Fire Grill many times, and each time has always been amazing. This visit was no different, our server Josh was excellent. My husband and I were celebrating having just closed on our first house and a very sweet and creative lady in the back drew on our dessert plate a picture of a house and the words congratulations new home owners! Really put our experience over the top and we really appreciated it. Thanks for always going above and beyond!

Another great dining experience with yet another amiable, funny and knowledgeable waiter (Andrew). Not to mention although not the most extensive wine list, a great selection of California wines at exceptional prices. Thanks for another great expertise Kenny — it’s the whipped creamed and cherry of my marriage 😬.

Kenny's has been a favorite for years and this visit was again excellent. Kenny’s just has a special feel, energy that is so inviting. Food was excellent; service was perfect; relaxing dinner, never felt rushed. Frisco provides many upscale options but we chose to drive to Kenny's in Addison for special occasions, wife's birthday.

The food was amazing and service was great. I took my wife out for her birthday it exceeded my high expectations. I always like making ribs for my bday but now I am going to ask my wife to take me to kennys! The pork chop was the best I have ever had and my wife’s surf and turf was incredible. The lobster was cooked to perfection. Thank you again for the top notch experience.

This was our third visit. Our first visit was mid afternoon and was quite and fun (although I hate banquette seating. I feel like I have at accommodate the people next to me). I’d rate it a 4.
Second visit was Sunday brunch...the specials were not special and it was way too loud. I’d rate it a 2.
Our visit on the 26th was largely the same. Too noisy, too crowded and the food wasn’t all that great!
I want to like it. Lots of people do but I’m sad to say I won’t probably return. There’s just not enough reasons to “try again”.
So sorry.
