    My wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary at T. Lawsons 2/23/2024. As always we had a Great time. Food and drinks were excellent along with conversations with Z., Mary Beth and Jody the piano player. So much fun! Our anniversary was even acknowledged to everyone! Thanks for making our special night even better.

    Their menu had hardly anything to offer besides sandwiches and overpriced steak. Their online menu did NOT match what was on their actual menu and prices were overboard. Ended up only doing drinks and an appetizer and going elsewhere for dinner.

    Amy, our waitress was great! Not a huge fan of having a meal amongst a bunch of seniors playing bingo. I obviously missed that fact when I made my reservation. That was my fault. The nachos were quite good and there was a decent beer selection.

    The atmosphere of this place is quite nice. They need work on the taste of food and could use some training in the service area. While the chicken wings were phenomenal, the rest of the Food we ordered was very bland. Burgers had no taste. Chips tasted like they were out of a bag. The nachos, particular their sauce, left such an aftertaste. Pricing was wrong for drinks and after several attempts, they couldn’t get the checks right for each sitting couple. We’ve heard good things about T Lawson’s, so we tried but likely won’t go back. We will stick with Patti’s across the street.

    We were seated immediately. Waitress was very snippy when we asked about the “O’Bryan” from the menu online. She said we don’t have that & where did you see it? Show it to me! When we did, she said, That’s Google, not us. Well, it was on their website. And Gumbo, $34 special! No, that’s ridiculous. We ordered the brisket nachos which were fine unless you were actually expecting some brisket…. Doubt we will be back.

    Food and drinks were amazing! Reasonable time for food to table, drinks are really slow. Staff was nice and everything tasted amazing. The serving sizes were huge. If you want to save some money, order one thing and split or some of the appetizers can be your entreé.

    We’ll be back. May want to rethink your sirloin steak dish ( sauce questionable) asparagus were undercooked and tough. My wife’s chicken Marsala was excellent. Cheese curds excellent. Our waitress Casey was excellent!!!

    The best things that I can say are that the host was amazing and so helpful and the pretzel was really good. Those are the only two things that really earned anything over a star. The food only has one side and is way overpriced. I had the Ricotta Chicken and my husband had the Chicken Marsala, both $25. I can honestly say that mine was the worst chicken dish that I’ve ever had. The sauce was broken, asparagus tough and big, and the dish had absolutely no flavor. Our friends had burgers that were so dry they just crumbled. Service was just average, nothing extra. Will definitely not be going back. If you can’t get into Patti’s just go eat elsewhere.

    It was good as a whole. Smoked brisket was fantastic and husband’s steak was cooked as ordered. The cook on the fingerling potatoes was inconsistent and lacked seasoning. Brussel Sprouts had good flavor but were undercooked for our liking.

    It was our first time there and was looking forward to trying it out. My husband asked our waitress about an ale beer and I also asked about a buttery chardonnay. Our waitress said both times "oh I no nothing about alcohol". While I do understand that not everyone drinks but I would think as a waitress you should know what you can offer the customers. Going out to eat is a treat for us and it is always nice if your waitress can recommend something. My husband just had water and I took a gamble and picked one of the 2 chardonnay's that were offered. It wasn't a buttery Chardonnay but it was ok. I was also surprised that we were not offered any bread to go along with our meal. Maybe the other waiters know a bit more about the menu and drinks that our offered and ours waitress was new. The food was good. I have the Chicken Marsala with potatoes, no other side and my husband had the BLT salad. The were nice chucks of bacon in the salad and he enjoyed the salad. It would have been nice to have a some bread to go with both.

    The food was overpriced, we had a party of 7 and we all agreed that the appetizers were the best. We got the gigantic pretzel and the brisket nachos. Everything else was mediocre- we didn’t even want to take our leftovers home. Beautiful restaurant, okay food.

    Limited menu Service slow and inattentive. There was a lady walking around. I assume was the manager but never spoke with us. Food was okay but didn't really see anything on the menu that appealed to me. Margarita was way overpriced for what I got. The menu said it came with a souvenir glass. But when they brought it to the table, it was in a small water glass. Order that order a beer that I never got.

    We enjoyed our time at T Lawson’s tonight, service was great, we enjoyed the food but it wasn’t outstanding for the price range. We are foodies so it is hard to impress us with 5 star quality, but this was good. The atmosphere was perfect for what we were seeking. My one suggestion would be for them drop the reservation cancellation policy. We almost had a change of plans due to a child not feeling well and it being a nearly 2hr drive but felt we had to come regardless due to the potential charging of our CC with cancelling less than 24hrs. Luckily it all worked out. Thank you T Lawson’s for a great night out for our family!

    Excellent menu, seated immediately, loved the piano music, beautiful decor, and excellent food (brisket, asparagus, and corn dish). My party of 8 was more than impressed with both the food and service. Look forward to a return visit.
