    Pappas Bros. steakhouse always serves great steaks and offers wonderful service. Even though we have several steak places within a mile of our home, we make the drive to Pappas because we know the food will always be amazing. Most recently, we dined during the last day of Restaurant week in Dallas. It was quite the meal (at another steak place we also ordered the three course restaurant meal and the portions were noticeably small) for a $45 3 course prix fixe dinner. We still each ended up taking our leftovers home including a full size dessert! This is why we love Pappas as do our three teenagers!

    Best Steak in Dallas..Our waiter was terrific. We had forgotten our Central Market 4th course certificates but Pappas honored it anyways. They asked if we would mail them in to them, which we did the very next day.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We have gone to several of the top steak houses since we have moved back here. This one is THE BEST! I wish they would open one in North Dallas Suburbs. The food is just wonderful to match the quality of the steaks. The filet just melts in your mouth. The veggies are done to a perfect degree. And the cheesecake is to die for. Tastes like home made. And my mint julep was so special served in the authentic metal cup also. Cannot wait to go back!

    My wife and I took our two college boys, one of their girlfriends, along with my high school son out for my birthday. It is hard getting everyone together anymore. We wanted to go somewhere nice, but not too expensive. The Restaurant Week special allowed us to go somewhere we normally would not. Everything was wonderful, from the steaks, lobster, desserts, wine, ambiance, to the service. Top notch. We'll done.

    Their waits are far longer than they tell you. We arrived 1/2 hour early for a 8:30pm reservation, hoping to be seated early. Instead we were seated a half hour late at 9 PM. To be fair the manager came by to apologized and offered us free desserts. The food is very good but we did not like the mushrooms which were too rich.

  • Possibly the best steak in Dallas
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    I have been to Pappas several times over the years and it is always exceptional steak. It is melt in your mouth tender and has wonderful flavor. I have tried multiple cuts, and everything has been fabulous. Over the years I have tried multiple other steak restaurants, but I don't know that any are better...Some may be close to as good, but when asked where in Dallas has the best steak, my first thought is Pappas.

    Normally, service at Pappas is impeccable. When we were there it was not up to par. We are always impressed with the service. I'm not sure if it was because it was restaurant week or something else. Our party was very disappointed in the service that night.

    We tried Pappas Bros. for the first time for Restaurant Week, and quite frankly it was an all-around perfect experience. The service was impeccable - our server had great recommendations for both food and wine, someone was always around if we needed anything. The food, even on the lower-priced Restaurant Week menu, was really great. All of us had a wonderful time and expect to return soon.

    This is one of the better places to eat a steak in Dallas if you are a connoisseur of good red meat. The wine list is extensive but pricey (just like most Dallas steakhouses). One of my favorite wines was marked up 4x of what I can buy it. Most restaurants have a sommelier's special but not here.

    I took my mom to Pappas Steakhouse just to show her a good time. The food there was amazing!! I went for Restaurant Week and I wasn't disappointed! We got a 3 course meal for $45 each!! Our meal started with a caesar salad. With that someone came to crush pepper on our salads. Then, we each got the New York strips, asparagus, and a loaded baked potato! YUMMM is all I can say. Our server was so nice to give us a baked potato instead of mashed potatoes. Finally we got the cheesecake. The cheesecake was alright. It tasted just like the cheesecake at Pappasito's except there's has the strawberry glaze on it. The only thing wrong was that at the end of the meal our server took a long time bringing our checks.

    We visited for restaurant week and couldn't have been more happy. Turtle soup was great, the house salad with avocado ranch was one of the best house salads I have ever had, the steak was so tender it almost melted in my mouth. The steak was also one of the best meals I have had. The cheesecake and key lime pie were also top notch. Our server Theresa was on top of her game and the food was served very quickly. Not a single complaint.

    Our first time here and it was my birthday as well. Wonderful service from our waitress, the wine sommelier was super helpful in selecting a nice bottle of red for our dinner. We chose the Restaurant week menu and we were not disappointed with anything. The food was wonderful, the wine was very nice (their wine list is the most impressive wine list I have ever seen) and our waitress was super attentive and made the evening that much more enjoyable. We even got a lovely tour of their two wine rooms with all those amazing bottles of wine from their wine list-it was astounding to say the least. A great experience at a truly outstanding restaurant-wish I could eat here once a week.

    Service was not up to par. Our waiter only checked on us two or three times. Steaks were, hmmm... just didn't seem the same. Avocado Ranch dressing was SWEET. Scalloped taters and lobster bisque were great. Probably won't go next year for Restaurant week. Party of 8 should have had more attention.

    We went to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse to celebrate our 41st anniversary. Reservations were filling up for Saturday so we opted for 6:00 pm instead of a late night time. The valet was friendly and professional. The hostess greeted us and found our reservation and we were seated immediately. We were surprised at the number of people already dining at the early hour. We ordered wine from the sommelier who was very knowledgeable. Our waitress was excellent. We were told about the specials and she answered all of our questions. Hot bread was bought out right away.The salads were very good and served with two strips of crispy beacon crossed over the top. The steaks were cooked to perfection. I had the NY strip and my wife had the fillet.

    I know you have to fill our table quickly when it's restaurant week, but let us finish one course before bringing the next one. I was asked 4 times if they could take my salad away. No, I'm not finished yet! Just leave my steak sitting on the table. So annoying because the food was excellent!

    Our dining experience was exceptional which is usual when we have dinner at Pappas Bros Steakhouse. My wife and daughter both had the lobster which as delicious, my son had the New York strip which he thoroughly enjoyed and he gave me piece of his steak and I found to be cooked perfectly medium and I had the filet was very tender and juicy. All of meals were absolutely delicious. I had the House Salad and everyone else had the Caesar salads which were also tasty and delicious. I has the key lime pie for dessert and everyone else in the family had the cheesecake that we really liked. Our waiter who was named Brian was very attentive to our needs during the whole time we were at the restaurant. The lemon drop martini's were great.
