Lawry's the Prime Rib is adding a rib-eye steak to the menu. First new item in 20 years.

Lawry's is adding it's first new menu item in more than 20 years starting Aug. 6th, The rib -eye will be served either as a 24-ounce bone-in or 12-ounce boneless steak, along with the famous spinning bowl salad, creamy scallop potatoes and crispy fried onions. any thoughts? steak house competition? anything else they should add?

  1. They are going to add me to their frequent dining program (if they start one) with that 24 oz bone in rib eye. I'm getting that the next time we go...

      Count me in also!

      I love prime rib, but I think I love rib eye even more. Assuming they keep their usual level of quality, I may have just found my default ribeye place.

        They do have a frequent dining program. It's called VIP rewards. Been a member for awhile. Totally worth it, your accumulated points don't expire, they frequently have specials where you get double points. I get personalized season salt,for my birthday! Look at the bottom of the page for the link to read about it.

      2. I really like Lawry's. While I'll still get the prime rib, my wife loves a bone-in rib-eye so this might increase the appeal to her. I can't quibble with the main meal options, but at times I wish Lawry's had a couple of better appie options and definitely some better desserts. Though I am usually so gluttoned out by dessert that I rarely want one anyway.

          I agree on more dessert variety but their hot fudge sundae made table side with the chilled silver bowl, nuts, extra fudge and whipped cream is really awesome. for me, the trifle and cheesecake, not so much.

          1. re: jessejames

            Agree with that wonderful LA classic C.C. Brown's Hot Fudge sundae (they also sell jars of the fudge to take home too).

        2. That's interesting. One of my favorite spots and I guess they have all that prime rib there, so why not...are the scallop potato and crispy fried onions new? I don't remember those, just the mashed potatoes and baked. Will still be hard for me to get away from the roast beef, but i'm willing to take one for the team and try it out!

          1. according to the LA Times article today their last new item 20 years ago was fresh fish and before that believe it or not it was sour cream and bacon bits with the baked potatoes. Not much changes in 75 years.

            1. They're going to be basting it in butter.

              Utter fail.
