    I took my two sons, 18 and 16 for a birthday celebration. I had been to Texas once before and had their ribs. My 18 year old ordered the full rack of ribs, which is huge. My 16 year old ordered a 12 ounce Delmonico steak. I had the half rack of ribs. The food was great. Ribs have a lot of meat and the meat is fall off the bone tender. My son who had the steak indicated it was the best he has ever had. The restaurant was busy and the server did not come by as often as would be typical. But, we did not run out of drinks or anything else. Would recommend for a special occasion!!

    What price point does it take for high-end ($44/steak) eateries to appreciate a customer? Made rez specifying a birthday celebration. First time here. Atmosphere near bar felt sport-grill-a-la fresh cut flowers: strange. Waitress confused & confusing. No bread served until after plates on table 5 min. Had to request water refills. Steak dropped off without anyone bothering to check for doneness! Sides felt quick-frozen (Shwanns?) Lobster way over cooked. Least of all, no acknowledgement of special occasion- not a dessert, GC, drink or even a measly greeting as compared to other hotsy totsy spots (S.Fields, Crudo). Save urself disappointment - this is not a fine restaurant serving drinks, this is a high brow bar serving mediocre food.

    My wife and I took her parents there to celebrate her mother's 73rd birthday. The service was great our waitress Mickey did a wonderful job and had a great sense of humor. My in-laws who never go to these types of restaurants stated it was the best steaks they have ever had. They both had the 5oz filet. We don't really drink so we did not expereience any of the wines but the wine list was extensive. The only draw back if there is one is that it tends to be a little noisy due to the accoustics of the restarant, other than that it was a perfect evening.

    Dined on 7/30/2014
    Since this was my first time there and they seated kids in the bar, I decided to try the $10.00 Hamburger that does Not come with fries or any side. What a disappointment, all bread, it was just a basic burger. I did add on the fries, they were not cooked enough. I tried the $7.00 house salad, small, basic. They brought the main meal right as we started our salad. So for $22.00 I had a boring cheeseburger & salad. Will never return

    My wife had wanted to go but was skeptical because she did not know anyone who had gone. When we arrive and parked she was still not convinced this was where we should have our anniversary dinner. Once inside she was taken back by the décor and 50’s and 60’s music and atmosphere for it seemed to invite you in. The food was absolutely fantastic and by nights end we had found a new neighborhood restaurant. Food and wine selection was limited but just enough to satisfy your taste. Definitely a place to try. We will be back again.

    The food was outstanding. Had the tenderloin, cooked perfectly, juicy, tender. The burnt corn is really unusual but really good. Cole slaw was as good as I can remember. My daughter had the tenderloin, said it was the best steak she had in at least four to five years. Met the owner who came around visiting tables. Truly a fine gentleman. Mr. Wanstat (sp?) obviously cares very much about the diners experience. I hear he is there most every night. This was my second visit and will not be my last. The bartender whipped up a great sangria, though not on the drink menu.

    Both visits order came out wrong. Waiter made us feel cheap because we only ordered the cheeseburgers with fries. Husband’s with NO ONIONS. Last visit husband ordered burger no onions w/regular fries. I had the same with onions/ sweet potatoes fries. Plates came out we both started on the fries then I took a few bites of my burger, noticed on onions on mine and my husband’s had onions. They took the plates back gave me his old burger cold with our old fries and a new burger with no onions for him. I had to ask for bread while we waited for the new plates and they gave us a small piece to share. Bill came to $33.46 left a $6.00 tip. They did not offer to comp my husband’s soda, or dessert. This will be our last visit to the Texas.

    Love this place! It is pricey but, the food and service is excellent! We have been there 6 times and have been satisfied with each visit. From the time you come through the front door you feel like welcomed. The staff works well with one another and helping to ensure that every table is tended. This last visit we used the online reservation and it worked out great. We were celebrating an anniversary and birthday combo and wrote that one the reservation and they were ready for us and made it very special from beginning to the end!

    Set reservation. Arrived to an open table waiting for us but every other table was packed and the bar was overflowing. Noise level was through the roof. They may have been understaffed as we waited a while for anyone to come talk to us. The a diff person came out to serve drinks, a 3rd person took our order, a 4th brought us our food, a 5th came out to see how it was tasting. Asked for a refill as the prior 3 people saw them empty glass but were in too much of a hurry to fill it. Then we were left alone so I had to go to bar to get someone to get bill and pay. Not sure which of the 6 people I delay with got the tip. Maybe they split it. I like the food but maybe it was a busy day

    My wife and I visited Texas after our daughter suggested we go there. The food was excellent. For appetizers I had the Onion Rings which were not greasy but were lightly breaded with a crisp coating with the onions cooked just right. My wife had Crabcake Croustades and raved about them. I had the sweet potato jalapeno soup which my daughter said I had to try. The soup is an interesting mixture of flavors I enjoyed it and will have it again. For our main dish I had the Delmonico Steak with Peppercorn Sauce my wife had the Filet Mignon both were cooked to perfection the sides were great. We had no room for desert. Needless to say we will go back again. We fully enjoyed our visit.

    We celebrated our anniversary with another couple and their two sons, who were trying out Texas for the first time. The Bang Bang Shrimp and Crabcake Croustades were tasty with just the right amount of spiciness for our adventurous palettes. The Scottish Salmon was delicious and not too fishy as prepared in other restaurants. The Lobster Thermidor was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The Texas Redfish was broiled to perfection and gently seasoned. The flash-fried chicken was tender and juicy. We had a chandelier-full of 8 desserts. Our favorite was the warm bread pudding. The experience was topped off by visits by the FABULOUS magician, Dale W., and various wait staff / greeters.

    The service was indeed great, won't complain at all about that. I could hear myself and my guests quite well even with the music. My daughter (3 yrs old) loved the steak as so did we. Sides were OK, not as great as I expected. My only real complaint is the food portions were a bit small for the price. But overall a good place to dine.

    We were greeted by the hostess who gave my wife a rose because it was her birthday. The food was excellent - fom the appitizer to dessert. I had the 8oz Filet Migon and it was done to perfection, my wife had the Sea Bass and she said it was very good. My only regret was the magician was absent for our dining experience, we saw him briefly at one table butneve saw him again, perhaps it was a disappearing trick. h=The staff brought my wife a special cake with a birthday candle on it. All in all it was a pleasurable dinner and the atmposphere was just right. Definetly will be returning.

    Fantastic food. The filet was like eating butter, melt in your mouth and great taste and texture. Chicken breast with almonds was really great. Again good texture, cooked to perfection. For dessert, try the ice cream, strawberries and Grand Mariner. Love this place. Will be back again any time I am in the area.
