Lawry's The Prime Rib Restaurant Review

: This classic house of prime rib has slipped a bit, but we wish for improvements, because when it comes to prime rib no one does it better. And when the aged beef is sliced to order from the cart tableside, so sweet tasting, we forgive Lawry's its sins. Moreover, the setting --- a grand, old mansion of a place --- is a sight to behold. Choose from five cuts of prime rib (including the beef bowl cut), accompanied by salad, mashed potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and whipped-cream horseradish. Lawry's offers lobster tail as well, with or without the prime rib. Desserts include a pleasing hot fudge sundae.
