It says steakhouse.....think prime rib house. The foods goods simply slightly not quite what your thinking. Wait staff good for Intl and China standards. If your need some beef its near the Starbucks.

“Definitely the worst Lawry's ever”
Reviewed September 30, 2010

So that waiters do not look like down on you and give you hell:
1. Never speak Chinese.
2. Listen carefully because thier English is terrible.
3. Do not order Shanghai becasue they think you are cheap.
4. If you don't like to have an ugly face looking at you, order alcoholic drinks, side dishes, appetizers, all the way down to desert though you know that you are not likely to eat it all from your US experience.
5. I do not know where the meat was from, but surely not corn fed US beef.
I went in around 7:30pm and spoke Chinese, the response was "we don't
serve brunch at this time." I was never given a napkin. There was never a smile. There was never a thank you by the waitress and be ready for a price shock, the Shanghai cut is at least double of that California cut. Best tip, DON'T GO! It is not a place to enjoy food but a place demanding you to show that you are willing to spend.
I thought Hong Kong Lawry's is bad, this one is much much worse.
