Thanksgiving dinner was amazing! Starla was attentive and kind, Manuel was quick to fill drinks and clear dishes. Couldn’t have asked for nicer family dinner on the holiday.

I had the turkey and dressing. They were both very, very good. I also ordered the Caesar salad. Really, really good. The only change I’d make to the Thanksgiving menu is having sweet potatoes instead of mashed potatoes. The pecan pie was a lovely ending to the meal.

Way too much drama getting a good bottle of wine. 7 year old merlot, cork crumbled and initial they just wanted strain it. Poured it all over table and then gave me a sample and it tasted bitter and chewy with cork.
Prime Rib was good as always.

I’m a Lawry’s VIP member, and I must say this was probably the most disappointing visit I’ve had. Side dishes were either cold or not tasty as usual, and our server, while very nice, had trouble remembering things. I even asked the manager if the kitchen was having an off night.

The service was suburb, Travis was most attentive and informative. The entrees were delicious and plentiful. We were also grateful for the quiet atmosphere; it was great to be able to carry on a pleasant conversation.

I've been to other Lawry's locations and this one lived up to the excellent quality they all have. Our waitress was superb. The food was excellent. The entire evening was simply perfect.

I came from out of state to find a steak restaurant that says Texas, as soon as I walked in the door they asked me to take off my hat, I'm a lady, I said this is a cancer hat, it's not for fashion I'm growing my hair back , they actually said they had to check w their manager if it's ok. The food was a just ok and way over priced. I rather Gordon Ramsay Steak but none were available to the area. Oh, and we were brought the wrong to go deserts with no silverware

we both ordered the exact same order ,cut and temperature / medium cooked prime. My girlfriends meat was a lot larger than mine. We swapped plates and enjoyed our dinner. There was about a 25% size difference Comparing side by side between the plates.

We love an old school steakhouse and we very excited to try this place. Unfortunately, it didn’t meet expectations. The appetizers were dismal… calamari was a greasy mess and the escargot had none of the garlic butter richness you want in the dish. The spinning salad was way overdressed in the odd dressing. We left three plates of overly doused greens on the plate. Was hoping the prime rib would save the meal. It was just ok. It wasn’t over cooked but it lacked flavor and arrived to the plate cooler than I would have liked. The mashed potatoes were not remarkable, the corn was even too sweet for our 9 year olds palate, and the Yorkshire pudding was mushy, lacking the crisped exterior one expects. The Texas Mule and complimentary bread turned out to be our favorites. Had we been at the Golden Corral, I would have left pleased but for $300, it was definitely disappointing.

Lawry's is our favorite restaurant! We have dined here dozens of times through the years and the prime rib dinners have been consistently fantastic! We are also VIP members and are awarded points for each dinner and special occasion!
Travis is, by far, our favorite waiter! Thank you, Lawry's, for our excellent, and memorable occasions!

We had a great time! Our only complaint is that the prime rib was very fatty. I know prime rib is supposed to be fatty, but this was more fatty than other places we have eaten.

Bloody, fatty prime rib. Our server was terribly rude and had only 1 other table. We sat for 20 mins with no one greeting us.
The manager dis lot come over and took our order.

For a birthday celebration, the experience and food was not good.

Food was delicious. It was expensive ($12 for a smallish baked potato). Also, service wasn’t as good as past times. For the $$ it should have been better.

Lawry's The Prime Rib-Dallas is absolutely wonderful for any daytime lunch meeting and especially for a very nice evening dining experience. The restaurant is impeccably clean and beautifully decorated. The food is top notch. From the hostess reservation and greeting to the dessert and wine you can't find a more elegant place to dine with charm and great attention to detail.
