    The food was absolutely delicious, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was unique and upscale. We especially liked the portion size -- enough, but not so much that you stuff yourself because the flavor is so wonderful you can't stop eating -- and that we could pick our steak size. Perfect location for a stroll after dinner on the eclectic Denton square. We'll definitely be back!

    I was very disappointed in our experience. We were referred by a friend and went there for our anniversary. I felt as if our waitress was interested in one thing - selling and upselling us. I ordered my steak medium plus (in between med and med well) it came out very medium rare. My boyfriend ordered his medium rare and it was definitely a rare steak. She did not even ask us to cut into our steaks to ensure they were cooked correctly. I decided not to send it back and wish I had. It was almost to the point of cold in the middle as it was not cooked enough. The crispy potatoes were merely fried potatoes you could easily make yourself. The truffle mac and cheese was very good - choice of pasta was a bit odd (orzo).

    Phillip the bartender is the best. If you have the ability to sit in the bar take it. If you don't like pepper ask for no pepper on your steak otherwise it is smothered in it. Great wine and really good drinks.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/22/2014
    Upon arriving there was no valet so I parked myself (valet was busy). I had reservations and was about 5 minutes early. The table was available but didn't get sat until exactly 715 - that was a bit odd but the only blemish of the night. The oysters and lobster cakes were amazing while the fried quail legs left me wondering how I might replicate the batter. Next we had the gnocchi which was pillow soft but not mushy and the rattlesnake sausage ragout provided justbthebtight amount of heat. For the main course I had the waiter bring me a dry age steak of his choice. He chose the Kansas which left me wanting more, after 20oz. The peppered herb crust was all the flavor needed to compliment the steak. Don't miss the margarita- best ever!

  • Dry Aged Steak Inedible
    Top10VIP
    Dined on 8/21/2014
    I love Queenies, but a member of my party was served a dry aged steak at our last visit, and it never should have been plated or served. The aging process had apparently caused the steak to smell like it had been immersed in a bucket of dirty mop water, and an adjacent diner commented on the odor. The steak was taken off the bill, but, again, it never should have reached our table. We love the ambience, and will be back, for another one of their fine entrees.

    Queenie's is now my very favorite restaurant in Denton, Texas. What needs to be said is this is much more than a Steakhouse. We enjoyed a scrumptious fish and vegetarian entree, with memorable lobster appetizers and a favorite Silver Oak Cabernet. The service was warm, inviting and very professional. Overall, I am so happy I have a special go to restaurant for my family and friends.

    I took my wife and I here for our anniversary, and I must say that this was some of the best food I've ever eaten! The service was fantastic and the setting wasn't stuffy at all, as expected with some of the upscale restaurants of this sort. Dress was fairly casual and the noise level was actually quite loud, even though there were only a few tables occupied while we were there. I would imagine that, at busier times, the place is quite noisy. So if you're looking for a very quite, private dinner, maybe this place isn't for you. However, that being said, I will definitely return to this restaurant and highly recommend that you try it too!

    We weren't too happy with our last visit to Qeenies, usually its great but not last Friday night. Not sure if they got a new cook or what. The lobster cakes were cold, my husbands steak was over cooked and my lobster was so over cooked, it was like rubber. We had to ask a couple of times to get our drinks refilled. We will try Queenies one more time hoping for better luck next time.

    Had a double pleasure of meeting, the restaurant's namesake, Queenie, and enjoying the fine cuisine served in this fantastic venue! Enjoyed the Filet and mushrooms again, with the striped bass-both were prepared perfectly! Queenie shared the story of her honor, and after enjoying some time speaking with her, it is easy to see why the restaurant is honored to by named after her! Kudos to both!

    Dont forget the mushrooms as you order your steak. The 15.00 price point may give you pause, but don't let it! There is a flavorful combination of garlic, basil that gives the several different variety of mushrooms a flavor that you will enjoy, either with, or without your steak. There are enough 'shrooms to share. Everything was fabulous this evening, as Phillip, the bartencer knocked it out of the park, with his mixology skills and knowledge of the menu. We will be back!

    Dined on 6/11/2014
    Decided to do a Non-steak evening. The striped bass was a big hit, with the fish cooked just right, and a very flavorful combination. I can't say the same for the pheasant, which did had a crusty exterior, as advertised, but the crust quickly gave way to a moist dressing-like texture, the flavor of which, did not really go anywhere. I guess the best way to describe it, is, all dressing, and no turkey! To the credit of management, when they were told of my dislike of the dish, they took it off without any hesitation! Cudos for standing behind their menu! Looking forward to a return!

    I could not believe how good, no, GREAT, the steaks and sides are here. Got the filet and ribeye, mushrooms, and, please do not forget the shrimp as an appetizer. Everything was cooked creatively, and to perfection! Before going here, I thought the capital grill in Plano was the best restaurant around-no more! If you dine here, you will understand why Tim Love is an acclaimed chef-he retains a tight control on everything that comes out of the kitchen. Ate at the bar, and enjoyed the expertise of the bar manager, Phillip, who is very knowledgeable about the menu and the Denton dining scene. This place is the best in DFW!! Will be back, for sure!

    I went with my girlfriend, really excited to be going to Queenie's! We were sat down and had really good service. We had lobster cakes which were awesome. They then served charred bread which was disgusting. It tasted like ashes. We then had steak with 2 sides. My steak was perfect, hers was as dry as could be had been cooked too long. We had mash potatoes, which tasted way too sweet. This might be normal but I didn't like it. And our last item, asparagus, was pretty bland. I feel disappointed.

    Sunday Brunch comes with a "buffet". I don't know what else to call it, but it is the understatement of the year. This one-table buffet was a couple of plates of deliciousness including huge prawns, a whole poached salmon plus potatoes, salads, cinnamon rolls and more. I put a note in our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. Without a reminder, they acknowledged the birthday at the end if the meal with a candle on a plate of homemade donuts. Service was excellent! Highly recommend.

    The Sunday Brunch at Queenie's was a great find. We had heard good things about the restaurant and the brunch in particular, and our brunch experience met or exceeded our expectations. The bloody mary bar and buffet offerings were wonderful, and the accompanying entrées were even better. The pace of service was deliberate and a wonderful change of pace from the hustle you and out service that is now customary. Give it a try.

    Our main meal included the Wagyu Tomahawk ($90), Grilled cauliflower and crispy potatoes. These two sides were tasty. The Wagyu steak, on the other hand, was an extreme disappointment. When you order a $90 steak, one would expect to exit the restaurant saying "wow, that was fantastic." We ordered our steak medium rare. We always order medium rare at restaurants and also cook that way at home. We know what medium rare looks like. This steak was rare! Almost still mooing! We didn't make a fuss because we felt it wouldn't be appropriate at a "high end steak house." We were aware that this cut of beef had marbling and fat, but were astonished that almost half of the $90 steak was pushed to the side of the plate. Beware!
