Loved everything about it. The food was over the top. Staff very knowledgeable about the wine list and menu. Best steak , cooked to perfection. My favorite appetizer was the quail. Yum.

Great experience from time we walked in until we left. Denton definitely needed this, nothing like this around!

New for Denton
Great restaurant in Denton when you don't want to drive to Dallas or Fort Worth.

We were disappointed that our first wine choice was unavailable. We did order another, and it was very good. The chicken-fried quail legs were by far the best thing we ate. Nothing was wrong with the tenderloin steaks, but we have had better. We probably should have ordered the rib-eye. Otherwise, it was a very good dining experience. I am grateful we have this quality of restaurant in Denton, and we wish you much success.

My husband and I celebrate our anniversary every year by choosing a new place to dine. I heard about Queenie's opening on the news-we live in Grapevine and decided to make the trip to Denton to try it out. We arrived early, had a drink at the bar and were given light snacks of excellent peanuts, a sweet and salty popcorn and kettle chips-all made in house and delicious. The dinner was great-we ordered the Tomahawk Steak and it was delicious. The freshly made donut holes were a real treat for dessert served in a brown paper bag to capture the cinnamon smell-wonderful! The service could not have been any better-Jordan was knowledgable, friendly and attentive. Overall a wonderful evening, great food and experience.

Queenie's in Denton
Awesome, awesome meal. Go for the grilled oysters for appetizer -- they are to die for. Then the Vacio steak. Our waiter (Taylor) was adorable and helped us decide since it was our first time there. Oh, and don't forget the "old fashioned doughnuts" for dessert!! Tremendous meal.

Nice dinner evening
The food was outstanding. The wait staff was knowledgable, but not bothersome. Nice live music, great wine selection - no Reislings however. The food prices are a little pricey for Denton. But the taste of the food of every course was excellent. We will go again for a nice date night or evening with another couple. Definitely recommend the gnocchi, pheasant, pork porterhouse, & lobster cakes!!

Bold flavors could use a bit
Bold flavors could use a bit more refinement and the service should be perfect for the price. Still a new place so hopefully they perfect it with a little more time.

This was our third time to visit Queenie's and the place just keeps getting better. I have had the opportunity to travel the US as a sales manager on a perdiem amount that allowed me to dine where I wanted. I have enjoyed a lot of great food. I would put Queenie's dry aged ribeye on top - it is the best I have had. The grilled oysters, chicken fried lobster, and salads are also stand outs. This time we shared the cinnamon ice cream for dessert--unbelievably yummy! I believe whatever one orders at Queenie's will be amoung the best possible.

High Quality Restaurant in Denton
Queenie's is a high end steak (and other) restaurant that compares with other (non-chain) steakhouses in Dallas. The food was impressive and the wait staff excellent. Great experience! Not a place for children or people on a budget.

Our party of four had a lovely Friday night dinner. The steaks, lobster cakes and halibut were all superb. Salads and veggies beautifully presented. Wait staff was very knowledgable and helpful. Atmosphere was relaxed and friendly while retaining a nice elegance. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

Island of Fine Dining in Denton
With very few fine dining options (2) in Denton, Queenies stands out for its ambitious menu and fine dining experience. The servers were friendly and unpretentious, and the food was everything you would expect from a Tim Love creation.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good, but not for the price point.
I had the dry-aged ribeye and my wife had the beef tenderloin. At nearly 3X the price of the tenderloin, the ribeye was a bit disappointing. Tasted great, but was overcooked vs. my request (medium-to-medium-well instead of medium rare), which is unacceptable on a $50 steak. The tenderloin, however, was sublime (and WAY cheaper). Lobster cake appetizer was excellent as well. As with other reviewers, I'd agree that the problem with Queenies is its inconsistency.
We'll go back again, but they cannot expect to survive once the novelty wears off without being exceptional in their delivery and quality, especially for the price.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worthwhile To Try
Atmosphere is very nice.The lobster salad was good,but the acid and the onion masked the sweetness of the lobster.The gnocchi with rattlesnake and rabbit tomato sauce was a homerun. The Tomahawk Chop was perfectly cooked, and for the size and quality the price was fair.It had a pepper crust, which was too heavy.The roasted mushrooms were also very peppery.The two combined was too much pepper for us, and we love pepper.The crispy potatoes were amazing. Drawbacks? $15 for the mushrooms was way overpriced for such a small side,otherwise prices were fair.Service was hoveringly over attentive, though she was very sweet. I also didn't like they dished the family style items up for me table side.Loved the 1/2 liter wine option. We would go back.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent food and service.
Excellent food and service. Price is inflated a little, but worth it if you consider that the service did not rush the meal nor make you feel that each course was on a timer. Worth it to me to sit and enjoy a meal with friends and an attentive staff.

Friday lunch in Denton
For this visit to Queenie's we tried the lunch menu for the first time. They only serve lunch on Fridays and we had been waiting for a for a good week for Friday lunch out. Fresh flowers and linens are on the table, just as at the dinner settings, but the light is great and in addition to the full menu they have some special lunch selections. Every Friday they have a $9 lunch special, but we opted for the blue cheese burger and the tenderloin sandwich. Both were amazing and served with different potato sides. We also shared the chocolate cheesecake for dessert. So decadent. It was a nice, leisurely lunch and the service was excellent. Go!

Burgers to Steak
I remember this place being the LoveShack, which was this quaint little burger joint. And, it was just delicious. Now, LoveShack has turned into a nice steakhouse called Queenie's. It's the same owner. That's what's even better. The food was delectable and the atmosphere was perfect. It's definitely a fine dining experience for the town of Denton. I'm definitely going back there!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food fit for a queen
Loved this place and worth the drive. Tim Love hit a home run with this restaurant!! Looking forward to going back. Expensive but worth it. I could have been happy with just the sides.
Loved the decor and floral arrangement
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went for our anniversary. I'm usually pretty comfortable grilling my own steak as opposed to dropping $50 for a ribeye. We got the Wagyu Tomahawk (split it) and it was one of the most tender, most flavorful pieces of meat I've ever eaten (medium rare). Sausage was good (chipotle bison) and the lobster cakes were fantastic. Gnocchi with rattlesnake-rabbit-fennel sausage was great too. Creamed spinach and kale and truffle mac & cheese were both winners. Taylor was a fantastic server and was very informative and friendly. We were surprised at the end with dessert (homemade donut holes with several dipping sauces) and weren't charged for it, along with a celebratory sparkler on the table and a bottle of Sparkling Cider (my wife is pregnant). A+

Good food, music and atmosphere
Nice to have options for fine dinning in Denton. I appreciate the local connection with the owner Tim Love growing up in Denton!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my wife and another couple and had a great time Saturday night. Service was excellent and the food was not far behind. Great place to have in Denton and we felt like we were not in Denton which was nice for a couple of hours. A great time was had by all and we would highly recommend this place to everyone. The drinks from the bar were also stellar!

Outstanding food, service in Denton
We participated in the food bank campaign 3 course menu with added appetizers. The ability to mix appetizers was great. We were able to sample several of the appetizers without a commitment to just one. Definitely try the lobster salad starter! We chose the butter lettuce salad, tenderloin with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The salad was an interesting mix of cool crisp and spicy crunch. The steak was prepared exactly as expected and fork tender. The sides were perfect. Although I was skeptical about the buttermilk donut dessert, I was pleasantly surprised. The donuts were hot, coated in cinnamon and sugar and accompanied by chocolate, caramel, and blueberry compote. They were delightful and a perfect end for an outstanding meal.

A gem of a restaurant
Creatively prepared food, terrific and attentive service and industrial chic decor. It was our first trip to Queenies and it won't be our last. My husband got the dry-aged ribeye and said it was one of the best steaks he'd ever had. It came with three sauces that were yummy, but I don't know if they were necessary as the steak stood on its own. I had the pheasant and loved it. Crunchy potatoes with aioli were crispy and fun. Also loved the cucumber jalapeño margarita to start. We noticed a bad review on Yelp and couldn't figure out what that person's problem was. Don't believe it.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chef Tim love has another hit!
We went to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and it was amazing.The shrimp and oyster appetizers were perfectly cooked. I had a filet and my friend had the halibut. Both perfect. Salad and desert were also excellent. Great wine,great food,great company. Thanks Chef Love!!
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Tim Love did an amazing job with the menu! Everything we tried was delectable. The lobster cakes were my favorite, while my boyfriend preferred the fried quail legs. The tenderloin was hands down the best steak I have eaten, and the truffle mac and cheese was perfection. I cannot say enough good things about the food here. I prefer a slightly quieter atmosphere for a romantic evening out, but for groups, or a fun night out, this would be great. The staff are all quick to serve and very friendly.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What you pay for is what you get!
This was our first visit to Queenie's. It is on the expensive side for "Little D," but you get what you pay for. We loved the lobster cakes, salads, beef tenderloin and creme brule! Service was excellent. For Dentonites, a great way to get Dallas quality food/service, but stay in Denton!

The Perfect Romantic Night
A fantastic place to feel fancy and to take your special someone for a great dinner. Everything about queenie's was perfect! From the moment you walk in the door you feel so welcome. The food was spot on and our waiter was fast and friendly! Overall one of the best places to eat in Denton!!

Special occasion dining
The food ,service and atmosphere were all very good. A little too pricey to go very often but makes a great special occasion dining experience. We loved all the food except the lobster salad. The dressing was really sour and it had lots of raw onions in it which just over powered the lobster. It needs a different lighter dressing and maybe not raw onions. For the $12 price I want to taste the lobster. Drinks were great and the service was outstanding.

Great fine dining in Denton
I took my wife here for our 4 year anniversary and we had a great time. We got there early for our reservation and the hostess directed us to the bar to grab a drink while they prepared our table. They took us to our table and our server arrived and took our drink orders. Drinks arrived quickly and the server took us through the menu. She was attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered shrimp and sausage for an appetizer, then a salad and soup for the 2nd course. The shrimp was delicious and the soup, buscatini was the best soup I have ever had. My wife got a dry aged ribeye and I got fried lobster. Both entrees were delicious. We had a great meal and great service. A little pricey ($200 for 2), but well worth it for special occasions.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Local Place
Great place right here in Denton saving you a 30 min commute to a Dallas area steakhouse. The food is outstanding.......

Great Food Again from Love
Outstanding dinner. Do yourself a favor and skip the appetizer and salad courses and focus on the entrees & sides. Wonderful steak, truffle mac& cheese, crispy potatoes. All served with a variety of sauces. We were too full for dessert. We will go back and recommend friends. Good alternative to Lonesome Dove until they reopen too.

Queenies had excellent service. Delicious food and a perfect atmosphere for my birthday dinner. Thanks!

Steak was excellent, salads
Steak was excellent, salads were very good, sides were so-so.
Wine list good but overpriced.
Good place to eat but pricey to the point that value is less than great.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good food, service , and attention from staff. A little drafty by the windows from ceiling a/c vents. Food items seemed 30 to 40% over priced, even for a quality place like Queenies. A person shouldn't have to pay $42 for a 14 oz steak, and get nothing else with it.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
Denton has gone upscale...
Great food. Very attentive service from someone who knew what she was doing. Celebrity sighting (Doris Roberts of EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND and REMINGTON STEEL was dining there that night). We ate too much and the bill was high, but it was first-class all the way. There was a creamy corn with my lobster cake that was the best thing I've ever had! And it was made from corn! Who knew?
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went to Queenie's for the 1st time and had a wonderful time. The service was perfect and all the people were friendly without being overly so. The music was big band 40s and 50s and was a nice background for the low-key but rich decor. All the dishes were prepared well and very tasty-especially the mushroom side. We had the lobster cakes, butter lettuce salad and Heritage Pork Porterhouse and all were recommendable. We will definitely go back.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Food is outstanding, ambiance is fine, waitress was great....but busing staff is amateurish at best.
Two visits same complaint. The busing staff do not cut it. Bumped my chair twice, filled my water glass several times and put back in a different spot each time, started clearing appetizer plates before we had finished the appetizers...all seeming little things, but not things I would expect from what you are aiming for.

Diamond In The Ruff
Queenie's is located in the heart of Downtown Denton in the restaurant district but is unlike the hamburger, ethnic, pizza and sports bar themed venues that dominate the area. This is truly a high end steak and seafood restaurant and I am guessing the only restaurant in Denton that offers valet parking. The food, service and atmosphere are all excellent. The only thing I would improve is adding a few more traditional items to the menu to compliment some of the chefs excellent but unique creations. I would add a few additional appetizer, soup and salad additions and a couple more traditional entrees.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another great night at Queenie's
We have been enjoying the exceptional food and ambience at Queenie's and are so happy to have seen this addition to the Denton restaurant scene fairly within the last year. The food was just exceptional, although my husband's ribeye was a little more done than he wanted (medium rare.) This was the only glitch in a near flawless restaurant experience and the only reason I didn't give it five stars on the food portion of the review. We''ll definitely be back though.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent special occasion!
I took my daughter here for her birthday dinner and was very pleased by the excellent service, the knowledge of the staff on food and drink options, as well as the excellent quality of food. Queenies easily offers the most luxurious dining experience in Denton! We shared the grilled oysters appetizer (my favorite) and for entrees we chose the tenderloin and the lamb chops. All was excellent and we topped it off with some amazing creme brûlée for dessert. Highly recommended fine dining experience!
