    We celebrated our one year dating anniversary and there were many of the staff that offered their congratulations. Best martini I've ever had. The food was cooked perfectly. The crab mac and cheese is a staple of my meal each time I visit. We ate our leftovers the next day and it was still great! I will be returning soon.

    Treated two co-workers to drinks and dinner. Had a wonderful time. Cocktail waitress and then the waiter at dinner were both excellent. Just the right amount of enthusiasm and attention. 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. Will definitely return and recommend to friends. Even the valet was exceptional!

    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.

    Overall, it's a good place to eat. Steaks were both quite good, but not the best we've ever had (which is what the price would suggest that you should get). The crab in the Oscar topping was awful- didn't seem like it was cleaned or prepared properly. The crab mac'n'cheese was the highlight.

    My mother-in-law announced that she was picking up the tab prior to the meal so I felt I had to order with restraint. So rather than order my Bacchanalian feast, all a la carte of course, I ordered the special. It was touted as a 10 oz. bone-in filet with bearnaise and king crab leg with fingerling potatoes, and a drizzle of beet puree. Seemed like a good choice as I would spare her the expense of the sides. The filet arrived as a 6 oz. no bone, swimming in a lake of balsamic beet puree with a tiny dot of king crab. The balsamic was in every bite; the steak wasn't up to their usual standards. I can't wait to go back, pick up my own darned tab, and order everything I want including joyful selections from their spectacular wine list.

    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.

    The food was great, just as before. The steaks cooked perfectly. The jumbo asparagus, skillet potatoes were fantastic. The ambiance wonderful. This was a special birthday occasion. The poor service we received was probably a fluke, not the norm. The server for the tables behind us received exceptional service from a very motivated young man who brought flowers to a birthday table, explained the dessert cart in great detail, was available & very attentive thruout. Our server, however, was attentive only at the start. Afterward, we waited & waited after our dinner & for the bill. He didn't bring or explain the desserts to us. He was busy talking at great length many times to a personal friend at another table and didn't even check on us.

    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

    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.

    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!
