"Lawry's the Prime Rib: This former mansion has a Victorian air to it year-round, but add a tasteful amount of garland and wreaths, throw in a quartet of carolers in Dickensian garb singing during dinner and you have a Christmas tradition."-Phil Vettel, Chicago Tribune

“You won’t have to sing for your supper, but if you want to hear some carolers, they'll be belting out the tunes while you slice into that steak at Lawry’s The Prime Rib. Carolers dressed in traditional Victorian garb will serenade tables throughout dinner service from December 7-24. For some reason, roasted prime ribs of beef au jus taste better with a side of "O Holy Night."-Sarah Freeman, ZAGAT

“You haven’t tasted Yorkshire pudding until you’ve sat in the time warp that is Lawry’s dining room and experienced live Christmas carolers singing to you while you eat. P.S. Those carolers will be in full Victorian-era costume.”-Time Out Chicago
