My sister wanted a Timeless experience for her 71st birthday, so we booked Lawrys, which we hadn't set foot in for over 40 years. The place is unchanged. If you want the spinning salad bowl, a slab of roast beef, mashed potatoes, the best cream corn ever, and a side of Yorkshire pudding, it should be on your go to list. Service is attentive, though the staff lack of enthusiasm for serving you the same meal as every other guest is palpable. Go if you're nostalgic to recapture the vibe of fine dining before the celebrity chef era.

Food was good - classic prime rib, sides were generous and delicious. Prime rib a bit pricey for the serving size. Service was prompt and friendly. Beautiful classic dining room !

We enjoyed our experience at Lawry's. We brought my Great Aunt for her 89th birthday and my mother in law. The prime rib was excellent. Ms. Rogers was our server and she was very patient and accomodating. My Great Aunt truly enjoyed the card, banner on the table and delicious raspberry birthday cake. Thank you very much!

We arrived a little early for our reservation but were seated right away. Traveling on business we couldn’t really blow the bank on this one, so we ordered some wine and prime rib. Our waiter seemed a little irritated that we didn’t want cocktails, appetizers, and side dishes too but we ignored that. All of the other staff were great, and very attentive. The prime rib was perfect as always, and the house salad, mashed potatoes, and Yorkshire pudding were also great. A classic Chicago institution!

We asked for Ms. Rogers as our server that we've had at least 5 times at Lawry's, and were lucky to have gotten her and we're so glad we did. She makes the evening so much more enjoyable. The food is fantastic as is the ambiance. It's a tradition for birthdays of my husband and Mom and hopefully it will be for a very long time to come. Thank you!!!!

To celebrate our 38th anniversary, my husband and I took Amtrak from MN to Chicago specifically to dine at Lawry's. The meal - as anticipated - was outstanding! Service was wonderful, too, and the restaurant even included a decorative ribbon on our table noting the anniversary celebration! We also received a complimentary dessert - most thoughtful and generous on the part of the management.

The food is quite good. Our server was Ms. Ripkin and she was phenomenal. Her service was courteous and professional with a warm and lovely personality. She told us she has worked there for 40 years. We were impressed with her presentation. We were even treated to a little Opera. A co-worker serenaded the audience and it was terrific.

We have been going to Lawry’s for over 30 years and always LOVED our experience. This past visit was NOT at all on the level of Lawry’s. I first want to express how hard our waiter Mike worked trying to serve and please us. BUT it was clearly noticeable that you were very short on waiters and carvers. We arrived at 6:45 and we were seated promptly. But due to being under staff, we did not eat until 8:25. We were celebrating my son’s promotion and were very disappointed. As I said, it was not Mike but poor management.
Thank you.

We had an absolutely wonderful dinner! I can not complement our waitress Ms. Farmer enough. We took my mom out for her first birthday dinner since losing our father and she made the night extra special for that reason. As always the food is on point and soooo flavorful. This is the only place to eat prime rib
