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.

Brunch menu not offered on Easter; this was a disappointment. Felt that we should have been informed when the reservation was confirmed that no brunch would be offered. In addition, the charcuterie was not available. Drinks are requests were a bit delayed throughout the meal. One pretty major concern was that the check brought to us was incorrect and yet added to after the fact upon charge of credit card (without informing the payer). This is a big no-no in the restaurant industry. Server errors should not be resolved in this way. We hope to return to Lawry’s after this experience but are a bit dismayed by what was an Easter and birthday celebration.

I ate there years ago and it was much better than now. The Premier salad was not very good. The dressing was nothing fabulous and the lettuce was subpar. The prime rib and sea bass were only moderately warm. The bass was not fully cooked. The waiter was great but the food was just not great. Three Forks has you beat

As always, the prime rib was exquisite and the service was good. Tried the lobster deviled eggs for the first time... highly recommend. The soup of the day was clam chowder and that always was very tasty. Another wonderful experience

Still the best prime rib in the metroplex. The service has vastly improved. Hopefully they can capture the magic in their past. Ask for Patrick...

As always, we enjoyed our experience at Lawry's very much. The food (always Prime RIb for us since that's why we're there) is excellent. The ambience is very pleasant but doesn't require tuxedos or coats which is a real plus. The wait staff is very well trained and are helpful. We highly recommend the SUnday Brunch.

I was about to write-off Lawry's. The last SEVERAL times I have been to Lawry's, the service was NOT good, the food was always good, but it just felt like a nursing home. I was pleased that they have a new server, Ross, who was very attentive and made the experience SO much better. Also, I believe they have new banquet tables/chairs which were SO much more comfortable. The whole vibe this time was less nursing home-like. I will be back to see if the improved experience has longevity.

There is nothing better than Hamburger Wednesday at Lawry's. Between the truffle fries and the pretzel bun it is a win-win. We love sitting at the bar and talking with Jason the bartender. Jason was off this past Wednesday, but we met Emily who is great too!

My wife and I have been going to Lawry's for years. Our dinner Monday night was outstanding, as always.
However, we were disappointed that they no longer offer a house bottle of red wine. This has been a standard at Lawry's for years and we have never been disappointed. Rather than choosing a more expensive bottle we opted for just one glass apiece.

Beautiful atmosphere, stunning menu items made this a very memorable birthday celebration for our son. We had prime rib, smoked filet, salmon, great salads, escargot, spinach dip and more. Each dish was excellent and cooked to order perfectly.

Thank you for a wonderful experience

The prime rib was tough and had a bone in it which you got very little meat (couldn’t have eaten it anyway). Quality of food was poor. Been there several times for lunch and food was much better. Service was good and wait staff very attentive. Paid a good price for a very poor meal.

We went to Lawry's for our anniversary, as we have done many times before. But after the disappointing prime rib that we were served, we may have to celebrate somewhere else. So before you get the idea that the whole dinner was bad, it wasn't. The spinning bowl salad is still one of our favorites and it was spot on. But it appears that over the years, the entree's have not been very consistent. One time, my wife's salmon is wonderful, the next it isn't. Same for the sea bass. But the main reason for going to Lawry's is for the prime rib. This is their main entree and namesake. And they totally missed their mark. When I was served the Lawrys cut, I thought that maybe the knife was not sharp because I had a hard time cutting off a piece to eat. It wasn't the knife.... On my first bite of prime rib, there wasn't really any flavor and it was extremely chewy. It was like that for the whole piece of meat. Trouble cutting, then chew, chew, chew... Needless to say, I have had better prime rib at a number of steak houses around the Dallas area and for less money.

Long time customer, but will have to rethink coming back. Over the past couple of years, the food quality has really gone down hill. The last few times I've dined at Lawry's, when I ask for my cut to be rare, they nearly always just cut the next slice and for the most part its med rare to medium. If the rib isn's right then why come back? For a customer who has been eating at Lawry's since 1971, its a real shame.

Lawry's Prime Rib Sunday Brunch is the deal of the week. Free Mimosa, Champagne, and Orange Juice, Muffins, Sour dough bread, and at a better price than at dinner, can't beat it. Our server Mr. Jones was extra attentive, and made our meal almost perfect. We came to celebrate our 30th anniversary, it was well worth the price for the food the elegant dining and the service...

The food was subpar. The prime rib had no flavor and was barely warm. Our waitress was bad. The coconut banana pie I got consisted of smashed banana put into a crust. I spent $400 there and I wish I would saved the money and had a better steak at Saltgrass. I was very disappointed!

Very nice dining experience. The waitress Hollie, I believe her name was, was extraordinary. She went above and beyond with my mother and I. Each step of the way she was there to further enhance our meal.
The prime rib was tender and very flavorful, not to mention the Yorkshire pudding was nice and crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. We will definitely be coming again.

The prime rib was delicious as always. The appetizer of shrimp cocktail featured jumbo shrimp that were fresh and nicely prepared. Dinner was for my wife’s and my anniversary and the staff provided us a wonderful complimentary dessert: off-menu English trifold cake with raspberry. Excellent service was provided, also, per the norm. We’ll be back for our next special occasion
