A word from Killen's Steakhouse
Don’t let our building fool you, we are an upscale steakhouse right in the heart of Pearland. We are the only restaurant in town serving Allen Brothers USDA prime beef, as well as the prestigious Texas-raised Akaushi Kobe beef. Certified Executive Chef Ron Killen has returned to his home town after training at Le Cordon Bleu and honing his culinary skills throughout the U.S. Our hand-cut steaks are cooked to perfection on a state of the art infrared broiling system that seals in the natural juices of the steak, creating a one of a kind “melt in your mouth” experience. All of our food is prepared fresh daily, using only the finest produce and freshest ingredients. Even our sinfully rich desserts are homemade and the only thing frozen in our kitchen is the ice cream! Come in and see what the whole country is talking about!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The flavor of the food was great but my husband and myself found ourselves picking a lot of shells out of our crab cake. A roach crawled across the floor while we were dining and someone had a toddler out at 930pm who was cranky and kept crying. I hear great things about this place from everyone and it wasn't awful. At that price range I don't feel I should have to constantly spit out crab shells or see roaches or hear babies crying. It may have been an off night but I don't have another $150 to waste to test that theory. I'll go to another place next time"

  • "For the kind of money I spent on food and tipping, I would have expected to be able to hear myself chewing on my slab of meat. Very noisy for a so-called "fancy" restaurant! The price of the food wasn't worth the experience! The service was ok. The food, ok. I chose the dry-aged Strip. It was cooked exactly as I wanted, which is "rare" for most dining establishments. Maybe it was the rub used, but I wasn't impressed by the flavor. I've had better dry-aged beef. The Flame in Springfield MO comes to mind when making any comparison. Over-all, I felt like I was in a shrunken Texas Roadhouse. Kept expecting to hear the staff to start singing "happy birthday" to the little rugrat crying at the next table."

  • "The noise level was awful. Got my food in a to go box and left . Did not even finish meal. They offered to move us but it was kind of late into the meal to do that. Gave the ice tea and wine for free but I was very unhappy. Saw people setting up tables and they put the silverware on the chair . People had there butt on chair and then other people ate using the utensils. Really for a meal costing almost two hundred dollars would liked to have more Ambience to celebrate my 66 Birthday."

  • "My wife and I were here for our anniversary. We shared a crab cake and she had broiled snapper, both excellent. I had the Strube Farms grass-fed Wagyu New York strip. It is hard to describe how good it was. We are pretty experienced diners and former restaurant owners, and this restaurant was top notch all around. It is a little pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommended."

  • "Steak was great (I had the filet), but the carrot cake was absolutely AMAZING! Noise was way loud, not kitchen noise, but customer noise, there's nothing really to absorb sound. I'd still go back though."

  • "Steaks were amazing, sides could use a little less salt in the mushrooms but creamed spinich was awesome. Hard to decide if the Steaks or peanutbutter chocolate mousse cake was the best. Do not go to Killins without trying the cake."

  • "Food was amazing! Rivals any popular steakhouse in the loop. Creamed corn is the best I've ever had."
    Dined on 8/26/2014
  • "The crab cake is a MUST order - best I've ever had. Texas wagyu ribeye was grilled to perfection and the meat was tender even the next day. Same with the carrot cake - rich, flavourful but not heavy. Ehlers Estate merlot complemented the meal well. Loved the overall dining experience!"

  • "Hooray for the restaurant for paving the parking lot! The rib-eye steak was not as delicious as last time we were there. It was served on a sizzling plate. Would have made the steak taste better. When the steak was served, it was on a plate that was at room-temperature."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We had heard all of hype about this place. Nothing special. Not worth the drive from inside the loop. WAY over priced wine and food. Extremely hot and poor service. Always willing and ready to try a new place and have many meals that are in the $500 and up range. This one as a waste of time and gas."

  • "We have dined at this restaurant twice. Both evenings were exceptionally memorable, due to special family celebrations. Fortunately, the service, food, and beverages were everything we had hoped to encounter. I would certainly recommend Killen's Steakhouse for special times when you want to enjoy dining and be assured that the venue will rise to the occasion!"

  • "Pearland, Texas and an unassuming front. Why the hype? The wife and I visited as a celebration dinner. First, parking was interesting. The valet line was into the street. Once inside, the greeting was superb and we were seated immediately per our reservation. We each ordered a 'specialty' cocktail. Just what we needed. Then the appetizer. Her French Onion Soup was flawless. My heirloom tomato salad was off the chart. Then came the steak. One bite and my wife forgot what she was talking about and just stopped and savored! If I've had a better cut of meat, I can't place where. We had the dry aged rib eye. Not the cheapest cut on the menu but far from the top. When we return, I may need to take out a loan and go for the top cut."

  • "We were really looking forward to trying this local restaurant because we had heard so many good things. The steaks were very good. However, our creamed spinach was watery and the salads ordered at our table of four were not consistently good. It took an excessive amount of time to locate the wine we ordered. The place has no ambiance at all and the service was just acceptable. In other words, we spent more than $75 per person for a $25 per person experience. I really can't recommend it. If I'm going to spend that kind of money for a meal, I want the whole package."

  • "This was absolutely the best steak restaurant my husband and I have ever been too. The service was fantastic, knew exactly what he was talking about & very, very respectful. The steak was the BEST steak I've ever had in my life! I asked the waiter to surprise me with a steak that isn't ginormous but would fill me up, and he was spot on with his descision!! So many wine choices, I told him to surprise me with his wine of choice and he also did a wonderful job at that, too!! We decided we will go back every year for our anniversary. Well worth every bit of our money!"

  • "Killen's is one of the best steakhouses in the US. My wife and I have eaten at many of the top rated steakhouses around the country and Killen's is in the top 2 or 3. Their crab cakes are the best we have ever eaten. Their steaks are simply wonderful. Their bread pudding is simply the best!"

  • "Service was top shelf. Server had in depth knowledge of all menu offerings. Filet mignon was truly the best I've had. Skillet potatoes, so good. Our memorable meal was finished with warm, flavorful carrot cake that was so good I could hardly stand it! We were attended so well and wanted for nothing. Birthday celebration for both my husband and son, fully satisfied guys! Simply clean and elegant surroundings. Lively conversation by others enjoying their experience, made hearing some lovely music difficult to hear. Looking forward to more memorable meals in our future! Perhaps my birthday...."

  • "Once again our visit to Killen's was amazing. Everything was just right from being seated right away (with our reservation), the drinks, food, dessert - everything. The mac and cheese and creamed corn are always wonderful. The carrot cake and crème brulee bread pudding were perfect to share among the four of us... with leftovers! Jason, our waiter, was accommodating, engaging and very knowledgeable about not only the menu but whisky, cigars, and anything else we asked. Totally impressed our friends, which is not easy to do! Thanks, Killen's, for making us look good!"

Beginning with the free valet service to the courteous waitstaff and, of course, the excellent food along with being in the company of great friends made the entire evening an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend Killen's for all of your dining needs when you want outstanding food with a memorable experience."

  • "My 18 ounce 21 day dry aged NY Strip steak was the best steak I have ever had. The flavor was a lot stronger than wet aged. The restaurant was rather loud, although I'm not sure what they can do about it considering the size of the place. Was disappointed that the Foie Gras was not available due to "presentation issues". Definitely a place to consider for special occasions. Strongly recommend you set up a reservation first."

  • "We walked into Killens and were greeted by friendly staff. Upon seating we promptly met our server and began ordering. We started off with the bacon wrapped scallops - really amazing! The scallops were huge and cooked perfectly, the bacon was tasty but not overpowering to the scallop. We both ordered 100% grass fed Waguy beef - I a ribeye and my husband a NY strip. We ordered the bacon Mac and cheese and broccoli cheese risotto as sides. The steaks were definitely the stars of the shoe followed in close second by the Mac and cheese. The steaks were cooked perfectly, seasoned well, and needed nothing except a knife. The Mac and cheese was the best ever! The risotto though good, was a let down. Too much like a cheap casserole version."

  • "My wife & I went to Killen's to celebrate the completion of my doctorate. We weren't disappointed. It began with excellent cocktails. Our server was knowledgeable of the various types of meats that they offer. Jane and the roasted bone marrow as an appetizer, I had the shrimp cocktail. Both were satisfying. My main course was the 100% Grass Fed American Wagyu 116 oz Ribeye from Strube Ranch, medium rare. Jane had the Venison Chop, House-Made Venison Sausage, & Sweet Corn Risotto. I am always cautious about ordering steak when I dine out because I'm usually not satisfied. Not only was I completely satisfied, but I must admit that this was one of the best steaks I've every had. The texture was amazing. Try Killen's. You won't be dissapointed."
