    My filet was so tender that I could cut it with a fork! Everything was absolutely perfectly prepared and delicious, and service was excellent. A great choice for a special occasion.

    Have been going to Culpeper's since the early 80's when it was the only game in town in Rockwall. a lot has changed from the funky little BBQ/steak joint back then. Still has live music from time to time but not the wild party place it was back then. But then again I am not the wild party guy I was back then so it's all good. The one thing that has not changed is they still have great mesquite grilled steaks at a very reasonable price. still my favorite restaurant in the area.

    Dinner was very good. My triple NY Strip was good and our filet/lobster dinner was awesome. The noise level was a little higher than normal due to a private party in the atrium with live music.

    When I made the reservations I entered that it was our 24th anniversary. Our waitress sat us in a nice romantic booth and mentioned she understood it was our anniversary. Our waitress treated us real good and the food was excellent. They gave us on the house a desert to share which was excellent as well. We really enjoyed our time and felt Culpepper's Steakhouse cared that it was our anniversary and wanted to make it special for us; which it really was!!! Thank you for a special night!

    Well....we had to call the restaurant while standing at the door to have someone come and open it, it was still locked. My $54 NY strip steak was a big disappointment. Way too much fat and gristle. I do better buying 4 from Costco for the same price. Sorry but it was once and out.

    We celebrated my Husband’s birthday at Culpepper’s Steakhouse last night. It was our best steak experience!! My Husband ordered the bone-in Filet Mignon (cooked exactly how he wanted) & I ordered a Cowboy (bone-in) Ribeye (cooked to my satisfaction). The steaks were juicy, tender and charcoaled grilled which tasted magical!! Executive Chef Chad once again outdid himself!! Thank you chef Chad & the rest of the staff at Culpepper’s for helping make my Husband’s birthday very memorable one indeed!!

    Overall the food was outstanding. Large empty restaurant, was seated in an open booth table with a family (with baby) right in front. Felt very inconsiderate of value and space. $300+ meal and have a baby backed up to our table. Advice, spread groups out and offer some privacy. Unless your going for Applebees…

    Food was fantastic. Prices were consistent with most steakhouses of its caliber - $150 for a couple's dinner. What frustrated me was the service seemed slow. I saw the water boy alot, and plates got cleared. But I had to request my waitress several times 'cause I never saw her. And then we were seated at the edge of the bar room which had overhead music, and was adjacent to the next room which had live music. My husband and I gave up talking 'cause we felt like we were screaming at each other to hear over both sets of music. It was ok. We've been married for years, and don't need to talk. We just enjoyed the food. I would recommend, and would go back. Just try to be seated away from where the two rooms meet so you only listen to one set of music.

    Been at Culpeppers several times and I believe there appetizers are not worth the money. No standouts that you have to eat everytime u go and little pricey However, the soup and the steak were good. I would save your money on the appetizers. Bin 303 has lot better appetizers.

    Culpeppers is fine for an occasional dining event but not one I'd visit regularly. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. Food is prepared well and served appropriately. All side dishes are a la carte, and bring the bill up considerably. Desserts were nothing special. It is easy to spent $100+ per person, before drinks, and more if you choose the Chefs Texan special (tourist $125, local $175).

    I’m aware that beef prices are high but for $56, I expect a really good steak - it wasn’t. The salad dressing was overloaded and ruined the rest of flavors. Also, I informed the manager and staff that it was my wife’s birthday but it was never acknowledged. Doubt we’ll be back. Eric Erickson was awesome!

    This was our first visit. It won't be our last. The food was great. The wine list ample. It was surprisingly busy for a midweek evening (maybe normal for them, but I was pleasantly surprised to see so many out for dinner). We will be back.

    To pay $54 for a 14 oz. Prime Ribeye with charcoal chips and taste of burn on edges wasn't great at all. To be charged $4 to cut this steak in half for sharing was ridiculos. The Apple Cinnamon Cobbler was great. It was an experience I desired to take, but will give a different thought the next time I celebrate a very special occasion.
