Lawry's The Prime Rib - Dallas Ratings and Reviews
I was excited to try this restaurant for my birthday because I love prime rib. Although our waitress was nice it seemed like she had several other table to attend to and I felt a bit neglected. There were two tables that came after us and got served their primerib first. Our reservation was at 7 and we didn't get out until after 8:30 and it wasn't because we wanted to. I was starving and got full off of bread and couldnt finish half of my meal when it did come. My husband and I felt that since the primerib sits in this heat contraption, it changed the texture of the meat and was a bit chewy and not melt in your mouth. Although they apologized and gave us cake and a glass of champagne, it just wasn't a good first impression. I think if I ever did come back I would try something else which is a shame because they are known for their prime rib.
Great for holidays, average for everyday
My first visit to Lawry's was during the holiday season and the place was certainly hopping then! The parking lot was full and loved the carolers around the restaurant. We did not make reservations and were told wait-times would be a couple of hours, however it turned out to only be an hour. Once we were seated, the waiter was excellent in introducing us to the restaurant and taking the time to make sure we got exactly what we wanted for our prime rib dinners. He even provided complimentary creamed corn when we asked if he recommended it. It was such a lovely dinner, I thought it would be nice to come back for an anniversary dinner with my significant other.
We came in April for our anniversary dinner and I made sure to make reservations this time. However, it seemed a bit unnecessary as all the guests during prime dinnertime on the weekend fit in one row of the parking lot. The hostesses were welcoming as usual, but our waitress was not as amazing as the waiter I had the first time. She basically went through the motions and didn't explain like the other waiters nearby what Yorkshire pudding was or why Lawry's prime rib was the specialty. The food was good as usual, but the macaroni and cheese was extremely disappointing. The sauce was super watery and there was no cheese flavor at all, let alone the "smoke gouda" flavor to be expected.
When the place is busy and expecting to make an impression, the place is exceptional. However, on the average day it seems like the place rests on its laurels. I would recommend for holidays when Lawry's is at its best.
Even though we had a reservation, we waited an hour for a table while others were escorted to their tables. The girl at the hostess stand just kept saying we are waiting for people to get up from the table. When we finally got a table there were several empty tables that could have been pulled together to accommodate the seven of us. The website showed a brunch fixed price menu, but upon seating we were told that that is not available on Easter and they have no control over the website. We waited forever for our food and then the yorkshire pudding was not available and would have to be brought to us when baked which was halfway through our dinner. Also, my granddaughter ordered the half chicken and it turned out to be a leg and thigh only??? I asked the waiter about that and he asked if she wanted something else. Our waiter was good and attentive, but other wise the whole experience was a disaster. We have lived here for 28 years and have gone to Lawry's many times, but never experienced something like this. After spending almost $600.00 for this type of treatment, I doubt that we will be going back and we will not recommend this restaurant to anyone. I will say the bloody marys were delicious.
The dining format had changed since my last visit, or perhaps because it was my first lunch visit. Instead of sitting at the table, ordering from the menu and having the cart come to the table, we were immediately ushered to the carving station. We were a bit taken back and felt like we were ordering without knowing what all of our options were.
That said, the Prime Rib was as good as always and we enjoyed our meal.
Steak and salmon cooked to perfection - spinning bowl salad was cool , crisp and very colorful...unlimited wine and beverage list...side dishes superb...deserts to die for....service was Outstanding starting with Mike and Karen (The Managers) who make us feel like a part of the Lawry's family..Hostesses greet you at the door (Banish and Vanessa) and make you feel so welcome...wait staff cater to your every dining want and need (Ms. Miller and Mr. Thompson are superior)...bus staff always friendly and very efficient. It's a dining experience we treasure...keeps us coming back each month since 1988 !!!
Lawry's was not quite on their game the other night. First, they did not have their pretzel buns for their hamburgers (and it was hamburger night!). Second, they were short handed in the bar area making everything run very slowly. Third, we love their hamburgers but the meat was really salty. Just like in sports, it was one of those nights where they were off their game!
Great Sunday Brunch! The brunch options were really tasty, and probably the best value I've encountered in town. For $15 - $20, a nice brunch entree came with soup or salad, as well as unlimited orange juice, mimosas and/or champagne. It certainly wasn't Dom Perignon, but it was very drinkable. Crab cake benedict was really tasty, with tons of crab meat and nicely poached eggs. Kids got the French Toast and it looked great. There are kids and adult portions for many items. Will definitely make this a regular spot for brunch. Service is always good @ Lawry's too.

This is the first time we have been disappointed with our visit in over 25 years of dining at Lawry's.
Our prime rib was cut by a carver I have never seen before and our Lawry's cut was about 1/2 thick. Then it gets even thinner at the end of the cut because of the bone.
After telling our waiter that our favorite part of the whole meal is the Yorkshire pudding, he arrives at our table as we start enjoying the prime rib to tell us it will be 10 minutes for the next batch to come out of the oven. We would have waited for the meat if we had known that. By the time it arrived, we had only a few bites of meat left. Not the typical meal we enjoy so much.
We are VIP Rewards members and visit Lawry's almost monthly.
Also, PLEASE bring back the peas!!!
Everything was delicious! I have not had prime rib that tasted as good as the one I had from Lawry's in a long time. The service was great, the atmosphere was also great. If I had to find something to "complain" about, I'd have to say that I thought the food was a bit pricey so it's not the kind of restaurant that I'd go to often but it's great for a special occasion.
The service was OUTSTANDING. While the food was not HOT, it was somewhat tasty. I was disappointed with my side dishes. I paid $14 for a spoon of corn and spinach - REALLY? I enjoyed the spinach. It just was not enough for the price. I thought it would have least been served on a small platter where I could have shared it... I have been here for lunch. I think I like this place for a lunch gathering better - the buffet.
Hostess was trying to put us I'm bar area after as a VIP member I had asked for main dining room and a table not a booth. I had to stop her and she did put us in main room. We had a grandchild with us and the food is excellent. Hollie was a great server and we were very happy after being seated. Steve the manager came by table tocheck on us and that was appreciated.
