Food was OK but nothing like the Lawrys meats that you get in their restaurants. Expensive for what you got food wise especially since you are sitting in a mall. However the creamed corn was delicious & Sparkling wine at $6 a glass was great...More

Prime rib sandwich was delicious! Also had Beef Mushroom Lentil soup, one of the best soups, I've ever had! We talked to the manager and they only have one other location, which is in Los Angles.

Service was fine, but we weren't expecting a take out kind of place. My dinner was good but my husbands sandwich was on very stale hard bread.

I've eaten at this restaurant 3 times, and have had the same experience each time. The signature prime rib sandwich has too much fat. It's disgusting and is not edible. For a place with a name that is synonymous with excellent prime rib, it's surprising...More
