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.

Took wife for her birthday, as she loves prime rib. Her first time at Lawrys. Service was fantastic. Her prime rib melted in her mouth. I had the sea bass and it was amazing. Will be back.

My 2 coworkers and I were celebrating our coworker’s birthday. Upon arrival we were escorted to the main dining area. A server pointed to the menu on the wall and told us we order off there, she then took our drink orders, and assigned us a table. We had some questions about the wellness the cuts came in as my coworkers prefer well done and I medium. We kept trying to stop a server to ask, but that was difficult. Another customer eventually helped us.

We all enjoyed our lunch. The prime rib was excellent and mash potatoes too. Service was lacking though. My Sprite tasted like soda water. The server didn’t come back until we were finished eating even though we made several attempts to get his attention (Anthony). When he finally did come and check on us it was time to bring my coworkers to go boxes. Anthony did go bring another sprite right before we left along with our check. He stated that the he had to change the Sprite. He brought each of us a to go drink , he said because of mine drink not being good.

Overall great food, the chefs cutting the prime rib very friendly. Other than that poor service. I don’t see myself returning to this location.

Lawry's The Prime Rib is great place to go on those special occasions. If you enjoy prime rib, there is none better in the Great State of Texas. If prime rib is not your thing, there is steak and seafood that melts in your mouth.

Next to Hamburger Wednesday and having prime rib in the dining room my third favorite reason to go to Lawry's is for Fish & Chips Friday in the bar area. The fish is great with a crunchy coating. My wife had her 2 favorite items for a meal....spinning bowl salad and the glazed carrots. Jason always takes excellent care of us.

Last night’s dinner was very good as always. This is the go to place for prime rib. Have never tried any other entree. Spinach and artichoke dip is excellent — you can taste the spinach and artichokes due to no ‘fillers’. Wine selection could be better but we are particular in wanting high quality French Burgundies. Our waiter, Dale, was great. Very knowledgeable and personable.

1st time at Lawry's. Meal (prime rib, of course) was very, very good. Thought the asparagus was a bit tart, but the Yorkshire pudding was great. Best part of dinner was our waiter, Dale. He could not have been better or more accommodating! Service was amazing and, while pricey, I will be going back.

I don't know what's going on with Lawrys Dallas. I am a huge fan. I take my family several times a year and have for 25 years. We often go on 7/3 for Kaboom Town afterward. We got to the half empty restaurant at 630 for 7 reservations. The manager acted like it was an imposition and it took several minutes to get our table. The past several times we've been, the meat isn't as good and my Dallas cut is the same size as the other Lawry cuts at the table, for $16 more. Once, the server noticed and replaced it. At the end, I asked (like always) to take the bones home for my dogs. We had a guest who asked if they might have 3 for her dogs. The server said "sure but there's a new $3 charge per bone." I almost fell out of my seat. They are throwing the bones away, but now want $3 a bone to put them in a box?!?!?! I said "since when? I always take bones home." So she said she looked for some for free.
The restaurant is typically overflowing in two dining rooms on 7/3. Only one dining room was open and it was less than half full. Everything is off at Lawrys and it's sad. Apparently others have noticed.

My wife and I went for Hamburger Wednesday with friends. They make the best cheeseburgers on pretzel buns. You get truffle fries with it or you can substitute their corn or spinach. We discovered the bourbon glazed carrots that are out of this world! Jason the bartender and our server is a great guy and always takes good care of us!

I had not been to Lowery’s for lunch lately. I took a friend visiting from out of state for lunch. I had told him about the fabulous prime rib and the wonderful tableside carving cart presentation. Instead we had to get inline as if we were eating at Luby’s cafeteria! I was so disappointed.
I got turkey and dressing that consisted of tough turkey and gummy dressing that needed sage.
Th creamed corn and potatoes and gravy were delicious. The rolls were hard and cold.

Salad premiere was always a real highlight. Dressing has changed and less toppings. A real disappointment. And what happened to the fabulous sour dough bread? New small tasteless bread also a disappointment. Spinach dip so so at best. Prime rib thankfully was as good as ever.

Lawry’s in Vegas? Oh yeah! But we decided to DRIVE to Dallas for our anniversary & try Lawry’s there! Was it worth it!? Yepper! It’s a smaller venue but still has ‘the look’ I wanted! Our waiter, Janelle, was really great....a little humor but very professional! The prime rib was everything I longed for! The ONLY disappointment (minor but still....) was their yummy spinning salad. It use to be included with your dinner. So good & refreshing! Now...Ya have to order($8). Bottom line...was it worth he drive from Houston to Dallas for a dinner. YES!

This is the third or fourth time we've been to this Lawry's. This time the service was slow. We didn't mind, because we were having a good time, but it was slower than it should have been. Food was good, but not great, and not as good as past experiences. We had a good time and the food was good, but I have to say that I was disappointed in the overall experience.

Interestingly, the suggested tip amounts at the bottom of the bill were incorrect. Our total bill with tax was $107.71. The amount suggested for an 18% tip was $21.69 (actually 20.13%) and should have been $19.38; the amount suggested for a 20% tip was $24.10 (actually 22.37%) and should have been $21.54.

Our server was very pleasant and helpful and earned her 20%, but Lawry's didn't live up to their reputation.

After years of talk about Lawry’s, I finally decided to try it. In the nicest way possible, I don’t get the hype. It’s a dated restaurant, but in a very classy way. It’s like going to your rich grandmother’s for dinner. The service was good, but not “out of this world” as you might expect from the hype. Most of the food was good, but I don’t recommend the Spinach Artichoke Dip. The Prime Rib Cart was a hoot and the meat was delicious. It was just a casual outing for us, but both of us left thinking “meh.” In a metroplex of fine dining, I’m not sure this stands at the top (or even the middle). For $160 for 2 (and we dined cheap (only 1 glass of wine and no dessert)), there are other (possibly better) options available. Cheers!

We brought a 2nd couple with us who were sharing our anniversary. The evening was very nice and low key. We ordered one glass of wine to share with my wife. A different employee came with 4 small vials of wine, (not ordered) and served each guest. The wine was good, but we could have bought a bottle for the table. Where this other waiter came from surprised us and as he said nothing, we didn't know it was not complementary.

Never disappointed.
30 years plus customer and we love the ambience, the food and the presentation.
We are early diners and the only reason they did not get the 5th star is that we had a 5pm reservation, arrived at approximately 4:50 and they were not ready to seat us. Were seated about 20 minutes later.
Olga was a very new server, but very good and the prime rib and sides were delicious.

The prime rib and filet were excellent. However, the server neglected to bring the Yorkshire Pudding with the prime rib. It was Father’s Day; therefore, typical items such as the daily soufflé for dessert were unavailable.

I came to Lawry's specifically for the Prime Rib. It was very good but the portions have gotten smaller. I ordered the biggest cut and expected a big cut for $55. It really didnt look much different from the smaller cuts at the table.
