    Excellent service, excellent food. The bar was a fun, energetic place to meet for cocktails before dinner. Every course was delicious. The lobster bisque soup is to die for with it's creamy texture and generous chunks of lobster meat. The whole experience was amazing.

    My friend and I have dined at many of the high end steak restaurants in the Dallas area and we always find our way back to Pappas. The steaks are ALWAYS hot, tender, juicy and cooked to pefection. The service is very accomodating to all requests and they make an extra effort to ensure the experience memorable. My friend just finished her first short story and we were there to celebrate. The waitress gave us the desert for free as a celebratory gift. A simple gesture but its the little things that make it a very special place to dine.

    Went for a birthday celebration. They honored our request for a quiet table, we were in a smaller room behind the bar. Steaks were the best in town, and we've eaten at most in Dallas. Service was not rushed but attentive.

    This was my husband's choice for a celebration dinner in honor of his new job. He was craving steak and wanted to try Pappa Bros. He thought the fiiet was the best he'd had in Dallas and my seabass was perfectly cooked completely through and the flavor was amazing with the light sauce. Service was fast, accommodating and friendly. We will go back!

    To begin with I had a waitress, I believe her name was Tammi. She was outstanding. Very professional, energetic, polite, knowledgeable of the food and even offered someone to come speak to us of wines. Her service made my first time visit memorable and I'm happy to say I will gladly be returning. The food was delicious, and it was a treat to have had the macaroni and cheese with crab. I can't brag enough of this place! Thank you, see you soon.

    Dinner was wonderful. The bread was warm, soft and crusty. The lump crab mac and cheese was amazing. My boyfriend's bone-in ribeye was great, cooked just as he requested. My king salmon had just a little too much black pepper but came with a wonderfully buttery sauce. The haricot verts were probably the best I've had. Unfortunately, we were too full for dessert but the desserts on the cart looked divine. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Overall a great dinner experience.

    Dined on 9/15/2014
    The restaurant has a pleasant feel and decor. The staff is friendly and very attentive. But the main attraction, The Food was disappointing. The seafood in the The Seafood Tower did not taste fresh at all. It smelt and taste like it was left over from another day, possibly longer. The Skillet Potatoes had an overcooked and unpleasant muddle flavor. The Roasted Wild Mushrooms, are not wild mushrooms and had a heavy overbearing seasoning/marinade. It was obvious that sides sit in a warmer all day. Very little attention is given to quality food preparation. Steaks were prepared correctly and were good. The Turtle Pie, Martini cocktail and wine were great. Seems like the kitchen has cooks and No Chef. Disappointing at this price point.

    If you are a steak lover, this place is a MUST! Our choices were beef and beef, with the Rib Eye a delicious medium rare, and the filet a tad more on the rare side. Both were tender, juicy and delicious. We also had a lobster tail addition, which was also fresh and cooked to perfection. And the mac & cheese (with crab meat) was a great take home dish for us, a terrific breakfast for the morning after such a big feast. Extensive wine list, terrific service...pricey but worth the spend for a special occasion.

    6 friends in town for the football game. From my on line research I chose Pappas Brothers Steak House. From the drinks in the bar to our dinner everyone was impressed and this is a hard crowd to impress! My New York Strip was the best I have ever had and I am a steak guy. Everyone in our group agreed the steaks were some of the best they had ever had. The evening was perfect - there was nothing that could have been improved upon!

    Pappas Brothers Steak House is a legend and now I know why. The food, service and place itself are all perfect! We shared the smaller of the porterhouse steaks and it was more then enough for two. It was perfectly aged, cooked and seasoned. The wild mushrooms and creamed spinach that we ordered with it were fabulous versions of the classic steak accompaniments. The service was outstanding from hostess to server to sommelier. The latter was especially helpful. Their wine list is the longest I have ever seen, with thousands of offerings. Our waiter too was most helpful and pleasant. Then there is the place itself. It is not only beautiful but immaculate. This is one very well run restaurant.

    We came for our anniversary and the service and food were really good as usual. They put us in the side room with a low ceiling and it was so loud that I couldn't hear the server at all and could barely converse with my husband. Not very romantic. But the food was great. Recommend sharing the scalloped potatoes - they were wonderful!

    Went to Pappas for the first time to celebrate my son's visit on leave from the Air Force. Several members of the staff made a point to come by the table and thank him for his service. The server was knowledgeable and perfectly paced. The wine list was incredible and the food well, it was the best steak I've had in Dallas in 40 years of dinning. The crab mac and cheese is to die for! We were treated like the royal family. Expensive but worth every penny!

    We arrived and was seated immediately. A familiar face, Brian, came up and we exchanged pleasantry's. He took our normal drink orders and then we asked for the sommelier to help us select a good wine with our dinner. Brian then went over then specials and there was one that peaked my interest. So dinner was ordered and it was absolutely delicious. My wife received her complimentary birthday dessert which was key lime pie. Because my birthday was a week earlier Brian spelled happy birthday in chocolate on the plate and put two candles on it. Tha to me is caring for the customer. Brian is very caring for all his customer's. He treats everyone the same. He is definately an asset to Pappas Brothers Restuarant. It was indeed a special night.

    It's been a few years since I've dined at Pappa Bros. The quality, service, and decorum have neither faded or wavered. I dined solo and was treated as outstandingly as when bringing in parties 10+. Food is excellent and prepared exceptionally. This time I really appreciated the geographical location's convenience. This is on top of my short list of Dallas dining when visiting for work or play.

    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!
