Prime Rib
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.

Lawry’s never disappoints. They are consistently outstanding in service and food. They were short staffed, as so commonly happens during COVID. Our server brilliantly covered the majority of the dining room with the assistance of 1 other staff member. They were amazing! Better service than any other restaurant with only 2 people working. Great job!!

We took someone to Lawry’s who had never dined there before. Covid has affected the unique dining experience at Lawry’s. The “ceremony” of bringing the large silver cart to the table and having your prime rib order carved in front of you doesn’t happen anymore. Now, they just bring you your plate...just like every other restaurant. The classy menus that were once mounted on rich leather backs have been replaced by printed menus on cheap paper. Same for the wine list. Towards the end of the meal, I missed having a manager stop by our table to ask how our meal was and thanking us for coming in. It was always a nice touch. Lawry's has always been one of our favorites. The food was good, but the special experience of dining at Lawry’s just isn’t there and that's a shame.

We came for their famous Prime Rib and it was very good but nothing to top Hillstons prime Rib. Restaurant decore makes you feel you came thru a time travel machine: the music, the ambience and decor is old, very very old, No natural light even at 5pm, it’s like dinning at Disney’s Haunted House!
After dinner I went outside and felt like Dracula coming out from a night club in the Mexican riviera at 8am and the sun piercing thru your body!

Don’t get me wrong, Service & staff are great and food was top.

They should open one with new setting and decore. Nothing wrong with great cuisine and service in an open modern place.

We dined later than usual. We were surprised that even during Saturday eve, popular hour in Dallas, dinner was so civilized. Though fully booked, there was not crowds around hostess stand. There were loud voices or unsettling patrons. Servers were attentive. My meal was delicious.

It was a lovely evening, wherin we could hear each other and our wishes were respected.

I chose this restaurant as I know the tables are spaced far apart (even pre-pandemic that was the case) and the food is excellent. This restaurant has a quiet and romantic ambiance that is perfect for a relaxing romantic dinner. They have added plexiglass partitions between the booths, but even if they hadn't, the tables are far enough apart to maintain 6 feet of space between yourself and other diners. Because the booths are deep, service staff are further away as well. We both had the Lawry's Cut Med Rare which comes with the spinning salad bowl, mashed potatoes and gravy and Yorkshire pudding and food was excellent as always. I loved my Fresh Raspberry martini and we also had an excellent bottle of red wine. All and all a very relaxing experience to start off a great weekend.

Quality had dropped from last time we visited. Server was newer, polite, but obviously still learning. She will likely be great with time. Didn't see the team assists to even out service and timing that have seen here in past. Don't think my drink was what I ordered, but wasn't worth dealing with it. Salad was gloppy with dressing, mashed potatoes were fair, not good or great. Other sides we ordered were great. Some of our prime rib was fantastic, other parts were tough. Was there for a birthday (noted in Open Table), nothing was offered, although several tables around us had celebrations.

We traveled to Texas from Cleveland, Ohio for vacation. While researching our trip I found that there was a Lawry’s in Dallas. I grew up in California and my parents always went to Lawry’s for special occasions. I hadn’t been in about 30 years. It was just as amazing as I remembered. I’m not a prime rib fan in general but this was hands down one of the best meals I’ve had in a while and a perfect way to end our week long trip through the state of Texas.

Evelyn was our server and she was great. Super attentive and such a pleasure. While we were not served our prime rib table side (Covid) our meals we hot, fresh and prepared perfectly. Thank you for a great dinner and experience.

Ridiculous, I went in for an anniversary dinner and when I asked for boxes to take home leftovers my waiter insisted on boxing them up himself, I’m not a terribly picky person so when he forgot my pudding, horse radish and prime rib sauce I let it go but he didn’t put in my entire half entree! Not only that but when I emailed and called to receive what I rightfully paid for the restaurant manager was less than enthusiastic about compensating me not only for my trouble but for the money I spent! I tipped my server well over 20% thinking it was a good investment and now I realize how foolish it was to expect quality service from such a half-baked performance. I didn’t even ask for more than what I originally paid for, simply half the lamb order I originally ordered and even then when I got home to finally enjoy it with my other leftovers it was undercooked!!! I’m entirely fed up and I don’t think I’ll ever be returning or recommending this place to anybody in the future.
