The steak was great!!
I’m a fan of Killen’s and will be back. Food and service are great. Just a caveat—several recent reviews comment that the steaks are over cooked, and I must confirm. My daughter and I ordered our steaks medium and they were definitely medium well. I even asked if I needed to order medium rare and was told no. Everything else was great, but definitely keep this in mind in determining how to order your steak. It didn’t damage our evening or experience, but it’s definitely disappointing that this is the trend. The steaks are fairly expensive and the steakhouse has a good reputation—you’d expect them to be able to nail a key, yet basic, aspect like steak temperature. As I said, I will go back, but I will order medium rare to balance out this issue.
Food was fabulous! Noisy, with a lack-luster waiter. Did I say the food was fabulous! Thank you.
We had a party of 15 that dined for my dad’s birthday and it was wonderful. The food and service were great! Everyone enjoyed their steaks, pork chop, and delicious sides! They stored our birthday cake and brought it back out with plates and forks when we were ready. They even provided the candles! Definitely recommend for special occasions and everyday dining!
Not only was the filet outstanding but our server, Randy, was above and beyond in helping us select our entree and sides. He was attentive but not intrusive. Bravo.
We went here to celebrate my husband's birthday. Patrick was our waiter and he was polite and attentive. The food was superb. My husband got the 16 oz. Ribeye Steak and it was delicious, tender and moist. I got the Parmesan Chicken Breast and I loved it. They gave my husband a birthday card but we had to pay for his dessert, which was the Carrot Cake and it was very good.
Excellent food including the best sides and desserts in the Houston area.
Thank you Killen's. I accidentally booked us for the wrong day and your staff moved things around to fit us in so we could still celebrate my husband's birthday.
Best steaks that I have eaten👍What more can I say.
I suppose if I had ordered a more expensive meal it might have been better.....but I really wanted Chicken Fried Steak and it was probably the worst I’ve ever had. It was tough and the breading was over cooked and completely separated from the meat. Others at our table ordered something more expensive and they didn’t complain. I also didn’t like that your wine menu was on an iPad.
Had dinner with my wife celebrating becoming Grandparents! This was our second visit to Killen's, and was just as wonderful as the first! Everything was top of the line. We will be back!
The best dry aged New York strip steak ever.
Always an excellent experience, from waitstaff attentiveness to food.
Killen’s is always a big hit with my friends from out of town. We ordered the Wet Aged Filet Mignon, Dry Aged Ribeye and the Dry Aged New York Strip, Cream Corn and Grilled Asparagus. It was all delicious and my friends were very impressed.
Killen’s atmosphere is inviting and relaxing. We always leave in a better mood than we arrived in!
Wonderful dining experience- will return again and recommend.
This was our second trip to Killen’s Steakhouse and it was not any better than the first time. Our waiter was not attentive and service was poor. The dessert we ordered was not described accurately on the menu. We will not be returning.
Awesome restaurant. Great food and service. Would highly recommend.
excellent food and service ragggggfhddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddd
Great happy hour as well as steaks and au gratin potatoes ...wine list was pretty pricey
We had a birthday dinner for my husband. Brian was our waiter and he was AWESOME! We really enjoyed our dinner & the ambiance.
Without a doubt, Killen’s has the BEST steaks, and I was not disappointed. We wanted to watch the Astros, so we ate in the bar area, instead of the dining room. It was fun (even though they lost). Our waiter, Larry, was attentive and knowledgeable, and he made sure everything was perfect. I normally have the Japanese A5 Wagyu filet, but they didn’t have it. Larry suggested the A5 New York strip, he had the chef trim it the way I like, and I can honestly say it was fantastic, and I will order it again. My guest doesn’t eat meat and he went out of his way to make certain her meal was exactly what she wanted. The macaroni and cheese was the best. No one’s Carrot Cake is better than Killen’s, warm and topped with vanilla ice cream. Dining at Killen’s is always a treat.
Chad the manager was great. First time there. Will definitely go back. Food was very tasty.
Our party of 6 was served promptly and efficiently. The drinks and foods were all amazing. What a great place for a nice evening out.
Everything was good up until the ambulance showed up to wheel someone away, we were right next to them. It killed the mood. I understand it’s out of your control, but maybe a little discretion next time.
Great steaks and service. Love the ease of making a reservation.
Delicious food & perfect ambiance! Killen’s Steakhouse is & always will be our favorite place to go for a special date night, Anniversary or birthday dinner!
We have a such good time, thank you for all the good service and attention on details
Great steaks and don’t leave without having the carrot cake-Best in Texas.
We always enjoy Killens--the food is excellent and the service is perfect. The menu is small but everything we've ever had has been wonderful.
We ordered 2 meals, 1 fish and 1 steak. The steak was ordered medium rare which was returned because it was overcooked. The fish was a little overcooked but I ate it anyway. By the time the manager brought out the steak cooked correctly, I was done with my meal and just had to sit and wait while my husband ate his steak. The manager stated that "they don't make the steak" and they all cook differently, which was a very disappointing statement since this is a steakhouse. The second steak was cooked to medium rare but was charred on the outside and had a burnt taste. We finally ended our evening with the server giving us 1/2 off the steak and a free piece of carrot cake but we left feeling disappointed about the entire visit. Although the food wasn't prepared right, the service was good.
While I may only come to Houston about twice a year, I always have dinner at Killen's on those occasions.
The food and staff are phenomenal!
Very nice place, a little noisy from the front bar area. Would definitely go again.
Always an excellent experience. The food was superb.
Not a review, a comment...I was most appreciative of your attentive wait staff; however, we ordered bottled and was served by our primary waiter around the table prior to the wait staff coming by and pouring the carafe water into my drinking glass mixing the waters.
My suggestion is to keep the water bottle on the table even if it’s empty to indicate the type of water served.
The waitstaff was friendly and attentive without being obstructive. My wife ordered the Artisan Greens salad which she enjoyed. I ordered the Jumbo Crabcake which was really good, however It was served lukewarm and I found several pieces of cartilage which took away from the experience. We both ordered the Beef Wellington medium rare but one of the orders arrived medium. Their version of this plate is very good but we thought that they used too much sage which lessened the flavor of the smoked mushroom duxelles. Otherwise, it was very nicely done. We ordered the crème brûlée bread pudding and it was served beautifully. However, we decided not to eat it there and ordered a to go box. Once we got home we found out it was placed upside down in the box. This is nothing major but not what you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber and takes away from what could have an outstanding overall impression.
Very enjoyable evening. Waiter was very attentive and pleasant.
The food and ambience was excellent. I just wished the waiter had come around more often. It was long waits in between and we went early, before the crowd started coming in.
The food has gone down in value, taste and presentation. The ambiance of the restaurant does not match the price of the food.
Food is amazing! Waitstaff so respectful and attentive. Love the background music. Best atmosphere.
