    Pappas is the best place for steaks and they do accommodate those of us who prefer something else (fish or chicken). Their sides are LARGE, and tasty. It has a great wine list, the service is prompt, courteous, and never "stuffy". We took my nieces who love steaks and even though this is an adult place, they felt comfortable and well taken care of. The wait staff even those who are not assigned to your table are friendly and thank you for being there. Pappas is always a wonderful place.

    Service was top notch, our waiter was excellent. One of the steaks came out way overdone and normally at these prices I would not return or recomend, because it ruins a meal when someone is sitting there while everyone else is eating. Our waiter however saved the day and somehow had it replaced before everyone else's first bite. Food was very good

    luvmyfood
    Dined on 9/23/2014
    Don't get me wrong, the food was good and nothing to complain about except the price. You'll have to re-mortgage the house!! For a steak to cost near on $100 and lobster coming in at $85 it's a hefty price tag. Drinks were super-expensive too. To spend over $400 for three people, no desert, no wine and one appetiser, you decide. You'll need one of their flashy silver "to go" bags as well. For me, spoilt the experience.

    We took our daughter who is a celiac (severe gluten alllergy) We enjoyed a fabulous meal, they were extremely careful, and take food allergies very seriously. The steak was great. The sides were very good. The desserts were over-the-top! The best appetizers were the bacon wrapped scallops and the fois gras. The wine list is unbelievable...

    This is my second trip to Pappas Bros Steakhouse, and I can't wait for no. 3. The tomahawk ribeye (from Greg Norman's Australian ranch) is out of this world, beautifully tender, and super flavorful. The chefs in back can really cook a piece of meat. This place (and the tomahawk, at $98) isn't cheap, but it makes for a perfect special occasion dinner. Four of us went all-out w 1-2 drinks ea., shared the lobster deviled eggs app, split 2 large sides, each had an entrée (2 of us with one of the "specials"), and split 2 desserts w coffee. Bill after tax/tip was about $480, and we were stuffed. It wasn't just a meal, but a dining experience... the kind of experience where gluttony meets excellence. Like I said,... can't wait to get back!

    The occasion was my girlfriend's birthday, so I was hoping it would be special - and it was. The waiter was excellent and took the time to answer all of our questions - and let me choose my steak from the front case. They arranged for flowers to be on the table and provided her a complementary birthday desert. Fantastic food and experience all the way around.

    This is my second time there and the wait staff's recommendation and attentiveness is always spot on. 6 of us went on a Saturday night and surprisingly, it was not overly busy. We had a few drinks at the bar (great choices of Scotch) and our waitress checked us in and paid very close attention to our orders. Richard, our server, paired our steaks w/a great red wine. Steaks were ordered by all and all were properly cooked and extremely delicious. Mac n crab and deserts were superb. We had a great time...thanks to the great staff at Pappa's.

    Visited Pappas Bros steakhouse recently for a special occasion dinner with my fiancee. We shared the bacon-wrapped scallops as an appetizer, which were excellent. I had a ribeye steak, and she had the broiled salmon. The steak was perfect - I was impressed that they offered a caramelized edge independent of the doneness of the steak - really made the dish more special. She really loved the salmon as well. We also enjoyed the crab meat macaroni and cheese - delicious! Finally, I had the gooey pecan pie - my favorite part of the meal. The large toasted pecans are excellent, and the dish being served warm with a scoop of praline ice cream is truly awesome. I'll try to replicate it at home, but we'll definitely be going back just for dessert!

    For the past 15yrs I've driven by this restaurant and imagined what it would be like to eat here; this IS the premier steak house in Houston. I took my wife here for our 7yr Anniversary, we started with the crab cakes (best I've ever had), I had the 18oz Bone In NY Strip, my wife had the Filet, we split the garlic mashed potatoes and crab macaroni and cheese, then finished off with the Turtle Pie. This place lived up to every expectation I've ever had about it, the service and atmosphere was second to none, the food was last meal worthy and there was zero rush to eat and go, we were told to pace ourselves and just enjoy the evening...that's exactly what I did, I can't wait to go back.

    My husband and I had a wonderful time. While the food and crowd was great it was the service that made it an over the top experience.... the waitress was extremely pleasant and genuine with her suggestions. The food is rich, flavorful and yes apparently one of the best steaks my husband has had (I went with the salmon and it was AWESOME too). Overall, a very very good dining experience and keeping in mind the price point I would have to say we will reserve it for special occasions only.

    My dining experience at this Pappas restaurant this occasion was severely shattered when reviewing my bill, I see a charge of $25 for a glass of red wine............one of my 3 guests ordered a 'house' glass of red wine and I was charged an unheard of price of $25. I have been in some of the finest restaurants throughout the world & have never paid more than $16/18 dollars for a 'house glass' unless otherwise specified or informed of the price by the server.......after asking my server why? she merely walked away from the table with my credit card & came back and stated......"she was paying for the $25 charge"................how convenient

    Great food but the Service was unsually slow and the restrooms were dirty. It took over 15 minutes to get a dinner and drink menu. The drink took an additional 15 minutes. I never was asked for another one. The waiter was inattentive. I have been here many times. This was dissappointing to see things get this way. Especially since this is one of my favorite restaurants in Houston.

    Pappas' Steakhouse has a wonderful combination of perfect food and personable staff. This is a place you want to settle in to, showing up often enough to be remembered. In turn, you will remember the wonderful steaks and seafood. I strongly recommend the bone-in cuts for their additional flavors. The Porterhouse for two is carved table side, attracting just a little more attention in a place filled with the movers and shakers of Houston. Ask for a table with a telephone-it may still be warm from the latest Oil Bidness deal. Come early and enjoy a cocktail at the bar. Try a Manhattan with a Luxardo cherry. Suggested and served by a bartender who can be story teller, psychologist or sphinx depending upon your mood.

    The air conditioning is some areas is very high and makes you uncomfortable during dinner. The sea bass was bad, it didnt had any flavor, and if you go with your friends and are the one who doesnt eat meat the menu for non meat eaters is very small with no good choices to have. The key lime pie was regular, also with a lack of lime flavor. The salad with tomato and onion and blue cheese used to be better now it was regular too. The meat and the crab cakes were pretty good.

    We frequent Pappa's Steakhouse, have always benefited from a top-notch dining experience. Friday evening our waiter was entirely inattentive. We waited a long time to be acknowledged. We waited a long time for both our wine and food orders to be taken. Once our meal arrived, we did not see our waiter again. We had to ask someone to send him to our table as we intended to order another bottle of wine. By the time our waiter arrived, we had finished our meal. We were surprised and disappointed. With an $800.00+ check before tip, the wait-staff service made our evening far less than what we have come to expect and appreciate at Pappa's.
