Kenny’s Wood Fired Grill is reminiscent of a 1940’s Chicago style chophouse with a classy, relaxed and warm atmosphere featuring the finest wood grilled seafood and meats. Our well rounded menu represents the traditional American classics with an emphasis on Kenny’s specialty, New England style seafood. And, while you are waiting for your table in the dining room you can enjoy the energetic “goose bar” sipping on a Grey Goose™ martini poured from our signature frozen tap system or a great glass of wine.

Always awesome. Best martinis. Excellent service. Great bar, but get there before 4:30 for a seat. Had the pork chop special—cooked to perfection. Friends had the steak and cake (filet and crab cake) and loved it. Cheers.

Staff Appreciation Dinner - Initially I was a little disappointed in the atmosphere. From the pics I had envisioned a cozy type environment & it was actually more like a sports bar, lively & noisy. But, everything went skyrocketed from my first impression. Our server was a pro, responsive & knowledgeable. The drinks were great w a special twist of replacing our cocktail glasses when they weren’t cold anymore. The food was excellent! Every single item was done to perfection & uniquely prepared & seasoned. I’ll look forward to returning!

Dinner was phenomenal, and an excellent value. Richard our server was incredibly attentive and helpful with food and wine choices. I indicated on OpenTable that we were booking for my boyfriend's birthday, and the manager came out to wish him Happy Birthday and gave a small gift card for a return visit. We can't wait to go again! Lobster Mac & Cheese was amazing, and the NY Strip was enough meat to make an awesome steak & eggs the next morning with leftovers. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Love Kenny’s. Service is excellent: Food is always wonderful. Lew took great care of us and was very accommodating, helpful. The popovers are so good. I got the jalapeño cheese soup and the patty melt which was wonderful. My friend had a vegetarian meal and was very pleased. Wish they served the lobster bisque soup that day, my favorite, but will definitely return. Love the cozy atmosphere and personable staff. Always consistent with quality and service.

Wait staff was superior but hostess was downright rude! We told her we weren’t in a big hurry when we got there because we were waiting on another couple. They were there about 5 minutes past our reservation and we were told that they gave up our table because we said we weren’t in a hurry. When it was pointed out that we never intended to give up reservation, she was rude and not apologetic at all. Said they couldn’t hold tables indefinitely. We were seated about 45 minutes after our reservation and all was great. Just didn’t care for the attitude!

Mary was once again our waitress n once again we fell more in love with her genuine kindness n professionalism. She loves her job n loves making you feel special, ty Mary!!
We tried the oysters which we have never had before but felt confident that we would enjoy them at such a fine establishment. Yes we did!! The smoked salmon was the best we’ve ever tried, get it! Loved the fresh Ahi nachos n their crab cake is all crab, yummy. Their tenderloin “chicken fried steak” with loaded garlic mash was comfort food at it’s best. This will b our go to in Dallas n can’t wait to try all the Kenny’s on our next trip.

This is the 2nd time we visited in past 3 weeks. We somehow had Mike as our server both visits. He does an ok job, but the first few times we visited, we had an exceptional server that set the standards pretty high. Mike has to be reminded to bring stuff asked for. He didn't really ask us how our food was after it came out. He didn't replace the Chilled Martini glass as others did in past. Additionally, he isn't very personable. I would shrug it off as him having a bad day, but the most recent visits we brought different couples that had never been to Kenny's. We boasted about the quality of service. Both times we were disappointed. Mike just didn't meet the standard we had boasted about. We will definitely be back because we love the food, but will probably make sure that we do not sit in Mike's section.

My wife and I went to Kenny's for our anniversary. We had an 8:30 reservation and arrived at 8. Luckily there were a couple of seats open at the bar and our bartender Irving made the best Manhattan and lemon drop that I had never tasted! The bartender's really treat you very well. After my drink had been sitting for about 10 minutes Irving came over and poured it into a freshly chilled glass. The lady sitting next to us and you'll never have a warm glass at Kenny's! Dinner that followed was outstanding. The Chilean sea bass was perfectly seasoned and my wife had grilled shrimp and we had the asparagus as a side. Of course the popovers are awesome our waiter was outstanding and the bread pudding with homemade vanilla bean ice cream to top it all off with just fabulous. Can't say enough good things about Kenny's. Will definitely become a regular!

Food was great. Service was exceptional. In fact when I ordered a cappuccino which was not served by Kenny's, my waiter took it upon himself and ran across to Starbucks and returned with one for me. Above and beyond.

Let me start by saying Mary, our waitress, was one of the nicest we’ve ever had. she is just a sweet person who really wants you to enjoy your meal to the fullest. Dinner starts with a warm popover that happens to come with my favorite butter Pulgra. We tried the mac & cheese with truffle oil, coconut shrimp with three dipping sauces, French onion soup and potato cakes and a wedge salad which is technically a small whole head of crispy fresh iceberg lettuce. Mary knew it was a special occasion tonight and gave us a sample of three different appetizers... The fried brie bites, tenderloin Crostini and shrimp dynamite. We enjoyed our meal so much we’re going to go back tomorrow and get a couple of those appetizers that we love so much tonight and try the peanut butter pie.

We were celebrating my husband‘s 60th birthday and I wanted to try a new restaurant when we were in town for the Dallas Cowboys football game. I did a little research n found the restaurant and we are so happy that we’re going back again tomorrow. Wonderful staff,, wonderful manager who really oversees the restaurant like I’ve never seen before, impressive!! Love the mood n vibe of this cozy elegant restaurant.

Popovers came out burnt, the crostini’s- had to be chewed about 60 times, the sea bass was so salty- could only eat 2 bites of it. I asked the waiter if he could bring some popovers that were not burnt and he said no problem - he brought a couple more out and they were just as burnt as the first ones, one of the managers came over and asked me how it was and I told him the popovers were burnt twice and right when we were finishing, a couple of tables around us were getting the popovers that were just golden, not burnt. There were two managers walking the floor when the food came out to all the tables, it seems like one of them should have been in the kitchen to make sure the tenderloin on the crostini’s were tender, the sea bass wasn’t over salted and the popovers weren’t burnt twice. They didn’t offer anything to compensate for the 3 problems.

Had a great dinner and the server was attentive but not overbearing.
Loved the potato cakes!
Second time here was just as good as the first.

Love all Kenny’s establishments but the Wood Fire Grill made the night specials!

After visiting Kenny's on many occasions and not being able to get a table. I finally made a reservation and our table was ready upon arriving! I was excited to finally get to enjoy Kenny's dinner and drinks. Unfortunately we had a waiter that was not at her best that day. We had to ask someone to have her come and take our order. We were ready! We had even had time to ask the hostess about the dessert options. By the time our waiter came to our table my friend had decided to have something else, in which she responds, "Oh, not ready huh, I though you guys were ready." I told her I was ready and she took my order and my friends order immediately followed. Her response was unnecessary though. This is exactly why I don't like eating out. People have thrown customer service out of the door like dirt. I was treated better at an Indian Restaurant were my language isn't spoken than here where they spoke my language. Despite the poor service from our waiter we enjoyed our meals that were brought to us by a friendlier staff. I thought he was her helper. It turned out he brought us our dessert too and told us that we should ask for him next time - which we will. We are not complainers so we did not cause a scene but we will definitely ask for Oscar who brought us out our dinner, drinks and desserts next time we go. Oscar made our experience way better. Not sure that we would have been able to eat if our plates were handed to us with a bad vibe. PLEASE REMIND YOUR STAFF THAT IF THEY EXPECT GOOD TIPS THAT THEY NEED TO TREAT ALL CUSTOMERS WELL. She still got 20% from me despite the service, but most would not have tipped as much.

Nice friendly environment. Went dressed in shorts and slides with a T-shirt (felt like I was wayyyyyy underdressed to the point of ‘should have been asked to go change my clothes’) but regardless the service was fantastic as if I was dressed semi-formally. Food was quite nice, sause on the Fillet mignon was just right and the seasoning on the pork chop was great. Initially porkchop was a bit salty for my taste but it was redone immediately without any b.s
Pricing may come off pretty hefty but when you see the quantity of the food it’s not expensive. 16oz steak... 16oz pork chop... 8oz tenderloin etc etc. it’s big... should have ordered only one dish instead of two;;;
