A word from Killen's Steakhouse
Don’t let our building fool you, we are an upscale steakhouse right in the heart of Pearland. We are the only restaurant in town serving Allen Brothers USDA prime beef, as well as the prestigious Texas-raised Akaushi Kobe beef. Certified Executive Chef Ron Killen has returned to his home town after training at Le Cordon Bleu and honing his culinary skills throughout the U.S. Our hand-cut steaks are cooked to perfection on a state of the art infrared broiling system that seals in the natural juices of the steak, creating a one of a kind “melt in your mouth” experience. All of our food is prepared fresh daily, using only the finest produce and freshest ingredients. Even our sinfully rich desserts are homemade and the only thing frozen in our kitchen is the ice cream! Come in and see what the whole country is talking about!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    We were really looking forward to trying this local restaurant because we had heard so many good things. The steaks were very good. However, our creamed spinach was watery and the salads ordered at our table of four were not consistently good. It took an excessive amount of time to locate the wine we ordered. The place has no ambiance at all and the service was just acceptable. In other words, we spent more than $75 per person for a $25 per person experience. I really can't recommend it. If I'm going to spend that kind of money for a meal, I want the whole package.

    This was absolutely the best steak restaurant my husband and I have ever been too. The service was fantastic, knew exactly what he was talking about & very, very respectful. The steak was the BEST steak I've ever had in my life! I asked the waiter to surprise me with a steak that isn't ginormous but would fill me up, and he was spot on with his descision!! So many wine choices, I told him to surprise me with his wine of choice and he also did a wonderful job at that, too!! We decided we will go back every year for our anniversary. Well worth every bit of our money!

    Killen's is one of the best steakhouses in the US. My wife and I have eaten at many of the top rated steakhouses around the country and Killen's is in the top 2 or 3. Their crab cakes are the best we have ever eaten. Their steaks are simply wonderful. Their bread pudding is simply the best!

    Service was top shelf. Server had in depth knowledge of all menu offerings. Filet mignon was truly the best I've had. Skillet potatoes, so good. Our memorable meal was finished with warm, flavorful carrot cake that was so good I could hardly stand it! We were attended so well and wanted for nothing. Birthday celebration for both my husband and son, fully satisfied guys! Simply clean and elegant surroundings. Lively conversation by others enjoying their experience, made hearing some lovely music difficult to hear. Looking forward to more memorable meals in our future! Perhaps my birthday....

    Once again our visit to Killen's was amazing. Everything was just right from being seated right away (with our reservation), the drinks, food, dessert - everything. The mac and cheese and creamed corn are always wonderful. The carrot cake and crème brulee bread pudding were perfect to share among the four of us... with leftovers! Jason, our waiter, was accommodating, engaging and very knowledgeable about not only the menu but whisky, cigars, and anything else we asked. Totally impressed our friends, which is not easy to do! Thanks, Killen's, for making us look good!

    Last week my son and I dined at Killen's Steakhouse for the first time with friends and the entire evening was outstanding. Beginning with the free valet service to the courteous waitstaff and, of course, the excellent food along with being in the company of great friends made the entire evening an unforgettable experience. I would highly recommend Killen's for all of your dining needs when you want outstanding food with a memorable experience.

    My 18 ounce 21 day dry aged NY Strip steak was the best steak I have ever had. The flavor was a lot stronger than wet aged. The restaurant was rather loud, although I'm not sure what they can do about it considering the size of the place. Was disappointed that the Foie Gras was not available due to "presentation issues". Definitely a place to consider for special occasions. Strongly recommend you set up a reservation first.

    We walked into Killens and were greeted by friendly staff. Upon seating we promptly met our server and began ordering. We started off with the bacon wrapped scallops - really amazing! The scallops were huge and cooked perfectly, the bacon was tasty but not overpowering to the scallop. We both ordered 100% grass fed Waguy beef - I a ribeye and my husband a NY strip. We ordered the bacon Mac and cheese and broccoli cheese risotto as sides. The steaks were definitely the stars of the shoe followed in close second by the Mac and cheese. The steaks were cooked perfectly, seasoned well, and needed nothing except a knife. The Mac and cheese was the best ever! The risotto though good, was a let down. Too much like a cheap casserole version.

    My wife & I went to Killen's to celebrate the completion of my doctorate. We weren't disappointed. It began with excellent cocktails. Our server was knowledgeable of the various types of meats that they offer. Jane and the roasted bone marrow as an appetizer, I had the shrimp cocktail. Both were satisfying. My main course was the 100% Grass Fed American Wagyu 116 oz Ribeye from Strube Ranch, medium rare. Jane had the Venison Chop, House-Made Venison Sausage, & Sweet Corn Risotto. I am always cautious about ordering steak when I dine out because I'm usually not satisfied. Not only was I completely satisfied, but I must admit that this was one of the best steaks I've every had. The texture was amazing. Try Killen's. You won't be dissapointed.

    Food was wonderful, we had the 34 oz ribeye and it was mouth watering fall off the bone delicious. It melted in your mouth and it was seasoned perfectly. We also had the Mac n cheese which was creamy and had a great crunch to it. The creamed spinach was a wonderful side and made the meal even better. The ambiance is like eating in a mobile home. As much as the meal cost I would think that the restaurant could use some upgrades to fit the perfectly wonderful foods. Perhaps one day it will. Go here you will not be disappointed!!

    After hearing so much, we made the trek to Pearland. Beef was terrific, well cooked & great quality. Service was informed and attentive. Had scallop app-good, as well as roasted marrow- middling. The sides were nothing special; we had high hopes for broccoli cheese risotto, but the realization completely missed. Dessert was great but really 1 creme brûlée bread pudding would have sufficed for 3-4. Real flub was oddly the toilets. Having to stand in line in middle of dining room was ridiculous. More distressing, women in party reported having to wade around wet pools on the floor which could not be attributed to sink, so it made them terrifically worried about walking in filth. Don't mind pricey, but food not exceptional enough to justify

    Our waiter was excellent!!! It was our 1st time at this restaurant and he was very helpful and extremely pleasant. The only concern was my son's steak was not cooked as ordered. I suggested he send it back but he was hungry. At $50 per steak it should be cooked as ordered. The side dishes and desserts were so tasty. The seating is tight but we did not have any problems. The wine we ordered was so good we ordered a second bottle.

It's really small so you need to have a reservation that you should make probably a week in advance unless you don't mind having dinner at 4pm or 9pm. Plus they make it super easy with online reservations! Love this place!
