Enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant and the variety of choices was nice. The food was very good and I’d recommend anyone visiting the area to stop by.

This place has the best pretzel ever! It is huge and the beer cheese is excellent. The food is delicious and the service is great. Just wish they were open during the week.

Love the atmosphere of the restaurant. It is in an old building in Grand Rivers, with a nice bar, and a piano player. The food was ok, not great. We ordered a variety of appetizers then split a burger. The cheese bites were good and...seemed to be home made. The grand pretzel was good for those who like pretzels, although the beer cheese sauce was kind of flavorless. The mini crab cakes were a disappointment, as they were obviously frozen, like you would get at the grocery - but the remoulade sauce was good. The cheeseburger was ok, just not great. With a menu as limited as T Lawson’s offers I would expect everything on the menu to be homemade and exceptional.More

Very disappointed in the food-overpriced and not prepared well. Service was good and the decor was very nice. Live piano music was good, but way too load. It was hard to visit over the music.

Delicious food! I had the shrimp and grits; my husband had a chicken dish. A gentleman played great tunes on the piano during our dinner which made it twice as nice. Decor is great; server was adorable!

Service was amazing and the Dixon loaded tots were one of the best appetizers I have ever had. Will order that for my main entree next time.

We were in the area to attend the AQS quilt show and were staying nearby at the Kentucky Dam cabins. Had made a reservation here but our party arrived early. The server promptly seated us and gave us menus and explained the daily specials to...us. We all ordered and enjoyed listening to the live piano music while we waited on our orders to arrive. The piano was loud at time but not unpleasant at all. Our food arrived and we found the portions generous and very good. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for dinner. Afterwards we strolled around to some of the small shops in the area, the way things are laid out really reminded me of walking around Gatlinburg, Tn with all the shops to check out.More

Another cool place in Grand Rivers, it was bustling for brunch. It's a great, friendly atmosphere. The food was excellent. Don't let the limited menu fool you. It was a very welcoming experience.

Walked into T Lawson’s when we couldn’t get in across the street. Had about an hour wait but was worth every minute. Service and food could only be described as phenomenal. The steak and lobster special was something you write 5 star reviews about and...our waitress was even better. Looking forward to going back.More

Three of us enjoyed our meals: Fish Tacos, BBQ Sliders. The Sliders were more food than expected. My Wife was very unhappy with her Shrimp & Grits. She ate the Shrimp and left the Grits. They were gooey mush. The Big Pretzel was big &...and good. The Okra Pod Appetizer came - it was just a plain Side of fried okra. (A Side for an Appetizer price )More

Stopped by on Sunday for brunch and caught an amazing country singer too! Excellent eggs and bacon and excellent service too. Really enjoyed the atmosphere here too. Server was really on point despite COVID. Will come again.

We have enjoyed t lawsons over the past few years. We drive down from paducah. The last time I was there I got the shrimp and grits. I've had them at numerous places including the lawsons. This time they were a dry glob in my...plate. The shrimp I could tell had been frozen. You can just tell. I hate when restaurants cut on quality rather than raise prices for better quality. Cutting quality will put you out of business. They probably lost my business. Dropped over $60 for a disappointment.More

Website Shows no hours of operation. They were closed @ 6:47 on a Friday night. We dive there expecting a nice night out. Big pink signs on the two front doors said closed and it was dark inside. The only thing open in the whole...town was Patties, apizza joint and the Dairy Queen.More
