    I loved this restaurant. Took my boyfriend here for his birthday, pricey but very well worth it. It's a little on the noisy side so I wouldn't suggest a romantic dinner date but great for special occasions and celebrations. Definitely a must try!

    The food was nothing short of amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the bacon wrapped scallops - I'm still salivating over them. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and the sides were decadent - they could have stood alone. The service was wonderful until our waiter's section got really busy and we were disappointingly forgotten. That was towards the end of the meal so we waited at our table without service for over 30 minutes after we were done eating. We really wanted coffee and dessert but were too antsy by the time our waiter finally brought the dessert menu so we asked for the check. I'd really like to go back and sample their desserts - they looked incredible on the online menu and it's one of my favorite aspects of a fine dining experience.

    My wife and I chose Pappas for our 28th Wedding Anniversary. We were visiting from Louisiana and looking for a great Texas steak dinner, we got a number of recommendations but Pappas kept coming up in all of the conversations. Needless to say, we were not disappointed with our decision. The food was excellent and the service was fantastic.

    Overall, this was a good experience and an excellent steak! There are a couple of things that caused me to rate this a little lower. First, this place is just so loud! I expect a large restaurant with a bar to be loud, but jeez! Fortunately, our table was in a side room that had about 8 tables so it helped. I recommend one of those areas if you can get it. We had to wait about 25 mi Utes for our 7:30 reservation, but in fairness, the website does warn of that so I was prepared. Service was good..no complaints there. The wine list is very large and somewhat overpriced, but again, I expected that. As for the food, the Beef Carpaccio was very nice..the Scallops were very good as well. If you order the scallops, be prepared for the richness of the bread they are served on. You only need a tiny bite with the scallop or it will completely overpower it. The steaks were really good. Perfectly cooked, well seasoned. For sides, we had the "wild" mushrooms...back to that in a minute..and the crab Mac and cheese. We specifically asked if the mushrooms were wild and were told yes..only to be presented with a bowl filled with baby Bella's that were definitely not wild. They were removed from our bill and we were offered a free dessert so it was handled well. We were told that this has been brought to the chef's attention and that the Pappas Bros won't change either the dish or the description on the menu. So, overall..it was good. I'll go back for a steak.

    i went here for my dad's retirement party a little over a year ago. He is a wino so he fell in love with the wine list. My boyfriend and I went again this past Thursday and pappas did not let us down. The steak was perfectly cooked! Service was great! Michael was so helpful when I asked for wine recommendations.

    In this opportunity we brought to Pappas Bros a couple of friends visiting from overseas. They were delighted with the food and service as well as with the overall experience. As usual, if there is a complain is in regard to the wine list. It is extensive but way overpriced, so it is difficult to get a reasonable wine at a decent price. To me, still the best steakhouse in Houston.

    reservations are just a formality at this place, plan to stand in a very overcrowded bar for at least thirty minutes before getting a table and don't think you will get close enough to get to the bar for a drink in that amount of time. the meal was sub par for the price. many better choices in the area...

    Started dinner with crab cocktail and a shrimp cocktail. Delicious flavor and freshness served with a great cocktail sauce. Next was the soup of the day which was tomato basil with croutons. A bit too much garlic in the croutons, but if you love it you won't be disappointed. For the main course, chateaubriand specially ordered in a 24 oz cut cooked medium rare. Excellent!!! Garlic mashed potatoes had too much garlic for us. Sauteed spinach was terrific. For dessert I had a wonderful pumpkin creme brûlée. Very large portion and loaded with whipped cream. My husband had a scoop of the butter pecan ice cream......simple, but delicious. Hagen Daz.......not bad!! Service with Michael was fantastic...ask for him or Hunter. :)

    Took 3 people who'd never been to Pappas before to enjoy the classic Houston steakhouse experience. As usual, we were NOT disappointed! Our waiter was great, he made several wine suggestions which were fantastic. Started with the seafood gumbo which was loaded with seafood. Followed by each of us getting the petite (8oz) fillet. 4 people with 4 separate temperatures and all 4 came out perfectly prepared, extremely tasty and wonderful. We ended with the creme brulee which was big enough for all to share and came with fresh fruit and fresh whipped cream on the side. Definitely going back!

    I would recommend this restaurant to all my friends. The waitstaff was very professional the service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. I had the salmon it was outstanding, my husband had a steak and both the salmon and steak were prepared the way we wanted it. We really enjoy the family style sides. We just love the romance of Pappas Bros. Steakhouse it is one of a kind. Can't wait until we can come back again. Thanks for a great evening.

    A meal here will cost you a good chunk of your monthly mortgage payment; however, the food is incredible. Steaks are amazing, the sides are filling enough to be meals themselves, the salads are fresh and laden with great cheese and great flavor. And just looking at the amazing dessert tray will make you gain 5 lbs. Excellent place for a special occasion, work dinner, or a night out with the wife (which I hope to do soon)!

    My wife & I took another couple to celebrate their birthdays after hearing us brag about the food. We arrived at 7:15 for our 7:45 reservation with the intent to grab a couple drinks before being seated. It was 8:15 before we were seated but the waiter quickly apologized & took care of our appetizers. We are normally big fan of the crab cakes but the bacon wrapped scallops may have been better if that's possible. The wedge salad was good & the group order one Potatos Au Gratin and one Crab/Mac & Cheese. Both sides were excellent & the other couple even commented they may have been the best sides ever. The cheesecake was great but the ribeye steaks were not what we were accustomed to & a little on the overcooked/under marbled side.

    My husband and I went for dinner. We started out with the lobster deviled eggs. Normally my husband does not like deviled eggs but he loved these. I ordered the 8 oz. filet Oscar style and my husband ordered the Filet Duo. We couldn't decide between the lobster mac & cheese and the mashed potatoes and our waiter brought out the mashed potatoes (complimentary) so we could have the chance to try it. The mashed potatoes were great but I prefer the lobster mac & cheese. It was the best thing of the dinner. I wouldn't mind returning and just ordering this. For dessert we ordered the pumpkin (seasonal) bread pudding to share. It was so good. Overall it was an amazing dinner.

The waiter was very accommodating (I'm vegetarian) and helpful (recommended excellent wine in my price range. Food was very good and the ambiance and vibe; lively but not raucous. Just right for us.

    Pappas Bros never disappoints. The waiting staff are friendly, helpful, professional, and knowledgable. They go above and beyond for you. The food itself is exquisite. The steaks are the best I've ever had, and I've eaten here 8 times in the past year and everything I've gotten is good. I definitely recommend the filet mignon and the mac and cheese. The beefsteak tomato and onion is delicious, and so are the mushrooms. Cannot say enough good things about this place.
