Having eaten Many times at Lawry's in both Las Vegas and Dallas, I must say my visit to the Dallas Lawry's on December 5th was my worst every experience ever at a Lawry's. The service was excellent as usual - but we all (party of 3) ordered Lobster bisque and one order of calamari for the table. Unfortunately we had to send all the bisque and all the calamari back to the kitchen as none of them were edible!! The lobster bisque tasted more like a fish gravy (all brown and very fishy tasting) and there was Not one bit of lobster in any of the three bowels; the calamari was about 95% coated and deep fried strips of carrots - in the entire platter, we found only one or two strips of actual calamari. Our waiter was very gracious and understanding of our complaints. The prime rib and the baked fish were both excellent but in no way made up for the negative issues we had experienced with our appetizers.

We go at Christmas time to enjoy a rotating group of carolers. They are always fabulous. The wine was outstanding (wine buyers recommendation). Spin salad, prime rib, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and mushrooms (best ever!).
The place was packed and the staff didn’t miss a beat!!!

This is an amazing place to eat! Went for an anniversary dinner and was not disappointed in the least. From the time we walked up to the time we left, our time at Lawry’s was great. We were met by a nice gentleman who I believe was the Manager and he offered to take our picture for us and was really nice, professional, and funny. Then he opened the door for us and let us know who to see and that they would take care of us. Once inside, we were greeted by two lovely young ladies and were seated immediately. Josh was our server and he was the best! So attentive and went above and beyond. He congratulated us on our anniversary before I even mentioned it, which tells me Lawry’s staff cares about their patrons. He offered a dessert of our choice as a congratulations and it was delicious. Their prime rib is the best in DFW in my opinion. It was quiet, romantic and it was beautifully decorated for the holiday. There were even Christmas carollers who stopped by our booth and sang beautifully. I would definitely recommend Lawry’s for any occasion.

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.

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.
