Food was superb as usual. Noise level was high, due mainly to loud couple at close table.
Date night with fiancee. The restaurant exceeded our expectations. Definitely going back very soon. I would not hesitate to recommend the restaurant to all my friends.
We always enjoy Culpeppers including the food, service and atmosphere.
Great food, great drinks and great service. Start with the cut bacon and perogis. The steaks are great and the mixed grill are always fresh. The desserts do a great job too.
We went for our anniversary. The food was delicious and the service good. Will go again.
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.
This was our first time dining at Culpepper's. We have passed it many, many times over the years and always said "we need to try that place". We finally did and really enjoyed the whole experience. Food was outstanding. Ambiance was great. Server was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back.
Hidden gem in north Texas! Great steaks!!! Had the porterhouse for two with no regrets!!!
Hot Summer but very cold restaurant. We were seated directly under an air vent that froze us and our food. Kind of took away from enjoying our food and conversation with others in our party.
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
The food was very, very good with subtle flavorings and nice presentations. The music was way too loud. However, we will visit again for the food.
I loved the western décor, the food, the service, the beautiful landscaping outside, and everything about this restaurant! The food was amazing, best steak I've ever had! Our server was fantastic, bringing each item at just the right moment. We had a wonderful evening, and can't wait to go back when it's cooler and enjoy the outdoor patio!
Delicious food and wonderful service from our waitress Valerie.
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.

Excellent staff...The sides (no subs) were HORRIBLE!!! Mashers and vegetables.
Best Brunch in Rocwall!! Highly recommend this gem
Great service and excellent steaks.
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.
Dinner was great and our server was amazing. We had tickets for the sailboat and he made sure we were out with time to spare.
I surprised my husband with a weekend away for his birthday. This included dinner at Culpepper's. We had the best waitress. She was not only attentive but helpful in our selections since this was our first time. We enjoyed drinks, dinner and a special birthday treat at the end. We will definitely come back!!
Excellent food and staff. Would recommend for any occasion.
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.
74th Birthday for my husband
Almost everything was great. The worst thing about the whole experience was the canned house music.
Your restaurant, servers and food are worthy of classical music, jazz or Sinatra. However, but the modern pop-country play list that lasted our entire meal would be better paired with a small town Dairy Queen.
You worked so hard to have an incredible visual ambiance but forgot to match it with similarly high quality sonic ambiance.
Fix that and I’d give your restaurant my highest recommendation.
Culpeppers is one of our favorites in the Rockwall area. We decided to eat there and celebrate our anniversary. From being greeted, to being introduced from our waitress to leaving...the staff was wonderful! My wife ordered the filet mignon and I the NY Strip, her’s came out perfect and mine was overdone (asked for med-rare came out med-well). Even though my steak wasn’t to my liking, it tasted really good but definitely not as good as the filet! Our waitress asked how everything was going and I did mention my steak was overdone which she was more than willing to make it right. But I’m not a person who will just toss food away (which would have been done if i sent it back) especially since it was edible! I said no worries and i appreciated the offer. In the end, our waitress offered a dessert due to my overdone steak which we accepted her offer and still enjoyed a delicious dinner from start to finish.
Specifically asked the waiter about the quality of the chicken fried steak, i. e. was it hand battered and tender. The answer was that it was his favorite meal and that it was always very tender. Two of my quests ordered the chicken fried steak and both were very tough. No attempt to reconcile the meal. Only at the end did the waiter offer one, not two, creme brulee'. Really???
Won't be traveling another 47 miles to this restaurant just to meet friends for a meal. It was their first and last visit there.
Sorry, you only get one chance at good food and service.
Rustic, cozy atmosphere. Much larger inside than expected from diminutive, unassuming exterior. Wait staff is very personable while very professional. The food was delicious and prepared perfectly. There was a live band and an active bar (multi-level) while we were there but the restaurant layout allowed us to still enjoy a pleasant conversation volume.
Service was awesome and the food as good as it gets east of Dallas! Don't miss the Oooy Gooy Chocolate Cake!
Meal was outstanding!
Everything good but bread was so tough. Hard to chew. Just ate inside of bread but was very tasty.
My favorite place to dine. Always choose Culpepper’s for special occasions for sure.
I don't know if there was a management and/or chef change but this place disappoints more and more every time we go. We went for Father's day brunch. The restaurant was about 60% full but the kitchen and wait staff were very slow. I had the special which was a ribeye and chorizo omelet. The omelet was good but my "medium rare" ribeye was 30% fat and barely edible. I was still hungry so I ordered dessert. I chose the key lime pie. It tasted like it had somehow spoiled. We will wait until this place goes out of business and some other restaurant takes their place to return again.
Overall bad experience, food was not what I ordered, server was non existent, table request was given to a couple that came in 5 minutes after us without a reservation while we waited.
We went here for her 12 year wedding anniversary had a great meal, and wonderful evening. Making reservations online not recommended, as the computer system does not always recognize them. The staff was great, friendly, and offered great food suggestions. The bacon appetizer is awsome. It's more expensive than a steakhouse, but knew from past dining, but worth the splurge. Would definitely recommend doing at least once, and we will go back . Highly recommend the slab bacon appetizer! Thanks for the evening!
The brunch was busy yet not overly crowded. Three of the four of us had the Crab Cake Benedict and WOW! Best ever.
Food was very good - only issue, one of our steaks was undercooked but waitstaff sent it back with no issues.
Entertainment in the lounge area was enjoyable. (Crawford & McAdams) Sat in lounge area before dinner and stayed after dinner until band quit & restaurant closed. Fun evening. Will definitely do the lounge thing again when these guys play. Waitress in Lounge area very personable, as well as hostess at the front who checked on us a couple of times while we were in lounge area before dinner.
We love Culpepper Steak House. It combines the quality of a high-end steakhouse with a relaxing, laid-back ambience. The Nueske bacon appetizer is a favorite of ours. You can't go wrong with any of the steaks and (on weekends) the prime rib. Service is great and friendly. Wine list is extensive.
Atmosphere was too quiet for us, food was good, but we were hoping to sit at the bar, but bar was very very small. It just wasn't the type of atmosphere we were looking for, probably won't go back.
Nice menu selection for Sunday brunch/lunch. Very cool, upscale, western style setting with an area for private dining events. Prices are reasonable for what you receive. Pretty laid back so you really shouldn't be in a hurry. They are not. Very nice place to have people from out of town so that they get a taste of Texas.
As always the service and food was great......the table was set as usual when we were seated by the friendly host. All four of our water glasses were not clean. 2 of them still had lipstick on them. At any restaurant, I would expect all dining and glass ware to be sanitized properly prior to setting the table. I believe our waitstaff was Max? He was very knowledgeable about the menu.
