As always Culpepper's exceeds expectations. From the time you walk in to the time you leave, the ambiance, service and attention to detail (water refills with additional pieces of lemon and fresh coffee brewing) is outstanding and refreshing.

Our server had an uncanny ability to sense when we were ready to order, thus we had a great opportunity to visit with friends over several glasses of Silverado. The brunch/lunch menu had some of our favorites listed, but I did miss the regular eggs benedict. I'm sure we could have placed a special order. The lobster omelet, Culpepper Benedict and shrimp & grits received raves at the table.

Unfortunately we recently moved from Heath and now live in Allen so we don't dine there as often as we would like. We have spent many a New Years Eve at Culpepper's and can still taste the filet mignon which is always cooked perfectly. Regardless of the occasion, Culpepper's is always an excellent choice.

One of my favorite restaurants in Rockwall!

Food quality was okay - nothing outstanding. Had prime rib special 12 oz - 3 oz of fat - lots of sinew - knife couldn’t cut. Lobster Mac & Cheese was missing lobster! Side of asparagus- 8 pieces? First time dining and wasn’t that impressed.

The inside of this restaurant was amazing, love the ambiance. Our waitress and food were good - not great. I felt for a steak house the meat quality was not as good as the restaurant itself. This was the only time I have been to this restaurant and it's possible (we all ordered filets medium and medium-rare) this was just a one time occurrence. I would definitely try this restaurant again with the hope of a better cut of meat. The bread and side dishes were very good - definitely try the sweet potato. We loved the softly played Christmas music.

The food was tasty but is much more expensive than other restaurants with the same type of menu.
My husband got the Scallops and it came with only 4 scallops and a huge pile of Brussel sprouts.
Way too many brussel spouts and not enough scallops for $34.
We asked for a booth and was told they were only for people with reservations. I told them we had made reservations but still got a table in the middle of restaurant.

We had filet mignon which was great but Luke warm and the market price lobster tails were cold and poorly prepared. The lobster came with garlic potatoes and asparagus, both were good but also came to table cold. We saved all year to have this great meal for our Anniversary but were somewhat disappointed. Definitely would not go back for lobster, but the steak was very tender so we might try that again........someday.
We did not make a big deal about the food because we did not want to cause a problem at our Anniversary dinner. Our wait-staff did a good job, which was expected in a basically empty restaurant on a Tuesday night.

Best Brunch Location in Rockwall. There is a wide selection of breakfast and lunch ideas and special pricing on mimosas and bloody marys. A crowd favorite yesterday was the chicken fried steak. Highly recommended.

The food was spectacular! The sourdough bread was crusty and warm, then the dinner salad was huge! We had the Halibut and it was unbelievably delicious!
We had the carrot cake for dessert and it was also amazing!
You won't be disappointed with the flavors or the huge portions.

Drinks were very slow to come out. When the food did arrive there was something wrong with all 4 dishes. Lobster omelette had very, very little lobster and asparagus, over medium eggs were very runny, the poached eggs in the two Benedict dishes had very firm yokes.

Started the night made reservations and the got there and was raining. The valet parking was a God send friendly and fast. Walking in everything was clean and amazing. The hostess was friendly and acknowledged our anniversary. Would of liked another seat we were set by the bar, but I didn't ask. Tables were big and chairs were comfortable I enjoyed every minute. Our waiter was great and he also acknowledged our anniversary. Other reviews said it took a long time to get served. The surroundings were so nice drinks were great and service was better I can't remember how long it took we enjoyed the time together. Now, let me tell you about the aged strip steak. It was an inch and a half or more, cooked perfectly, and melted in my mouth! Worth every penny! The potato was fixed at the table so I could get as much fixings as I wanted, I liked that! The entire staff made my wife an I so happy we celebrated out anniversary there. Oh don't forger the valet parking kept us out of the rain as much as they could. Trust me wasn't cheep but so worth it. Will do this again and again. Loved everything!

We visited Culpepper's to have Sunday brunch. They seemed to be short on staff as our waiter, Justin, was gone for long periods of time between finally taking our order and food being delivered. The food was not up to the usual great taste of Culpepper's. It must have been an off day all the way around.

The filet, calamari, and crazy sundae was amazing!!! I hate to be negative, but we really didn’t see our server as much as I thought we would, plus the person who buses and fills up waters and teas, should also be picking up empty dishes. Or essentially anybody who walks by. There must have been a big party because my truck about had 20 crushed bugs/business men when they shot out in front of me as they were leaving. Glad they had fun!!! Great experience!! Would definitely go again

Myself and girlfriends visited for Restaurant Week 2018. Surprisingly, we ordered from the regular menu. Our waiter was exceptional. I cannot remember her name but she did tell us she had been there for 15 years. The service was great and the food was delicious. We even had the MOD come over and check on our table. I will definitely visit again.

We make our way to Culpeppers a few times a year (2-4). we've had the pleasure of having Chris as our waiter the past 2-3 times. We're almost to the point that our meal wouldn't be complete without him serving us.
The meal is always awesome, but the service is what brings us back each time.

Thanks

First off, we were very confused by the ambience of the restaurant. It appeared very formal and the setting was beautiful and fancy, but they were playing loud pop-country music whick kinda killed the romantic vibe that i was hoping for.

Second, the food fell very short of my expectations. I ordered a 14oz steak and ended up with 8oz of gristle and fat and 6oz of chewable overcooked beef. The calamari was slimy and not fried nearly enough, and the macaroni and cheese with steak was very bland. Being from texas, i was disappointed by their lack of beers, especially craft beers.

Third, the temperature in the restaurant was stifling and my date and i were wiping sweat off of our faces the entire meal and couldn't get out of there fast enough.

Overall, neither myself nor my date were left with much positive to say a out our dining experience.

We've dined at Culpeppers in the past and were very satisfied. On this particular evening we both ordered the special which was prime rib and sea food platter. The prime rub was to be medium rare to rare, when received I scrapped the fried onions off the top to find a medium to medium well piece of meat. I promptly notified the waiter who bought me a another piece which was even worse. The sea food platter was huge and for all intent and purposes pretty good except the catfish which was very fatty. I would have been fine with Culpeppers offering to cook me a steak since they did not have MR prime rib, or just say hey we are out of MR prime, how about a steak. Will I go back, probably but not for a special occasion and will recommend other options for my business meals.
