Killen's has never disappointed us. Tonight we had a family birthday celebration- everyone was so helpful and attentive. Whatever you are celebrating- go to Killen's - the best steaks, crab cakes, desserts, servers and more.

My wife and I lived in Pearland for nearly 20 years and our family has enjoyed the steakhouse since it opened back in the day. It was excellent then and it is excellent now and we try as often as we can to get back to Pearland and dine for some great food with Killen's best server, Randy (the only server we ever want).

Randy's attentive (yet non-obtrusive) serving style and incredible attention to detail truly sets him apart. From remembering both our cocktails and having them ready within minutes of our arrival to time spent just talking table-side to the re-folding of a napkin for someone who left the table (roses for women and fleur de lis for men) to checking with me to make sure the pace of the meal with my guests is where it needs to be and everything in between, Randy is truly one of the best, if not the best server we have ever experienced. We have had others with truly exquisite service but you always know when you are just being "worked" for that great tip. What sets Randy apart is the genuineness he radiates in his desire to ensure your dining experience is the best you've ever had. Killen's truly has a winning combination, outstanding food and off the chart service.

We brought a foodie couple down with us to experience Killen's (and Randy) for the first time and suggested they judge their experience on the service and a few of what we consider Killen's staples (crab cake, their standard strip, and creme brulee bread pudding). The next day they couldn't stop raving about the food and service. Its the consistency we love and what keeps us coming back, so when we heard the official news about the new place in the Woodlands, we were happy to hear our favorite dining option in the world would soon be just around the corner. Now if they could just transplant Randy there as well.

With that said, I only have one word to say about food served at Killen's... "Two-Inch-Dry-aged-strip-Pittsburg-sear" - absolute perfection!"

Killen's never disappoints. Although it is a 'high end' restaurants , it always delivers the goods, making us feel that we got our money's worth! Killen's features excellent service and a menu that combines both the traditional fare of butter-tender steaks, but also the occasional surprise (Gumbo, anyone?)
We come to Killen's for special occasions and always anticipate these evenings surrounded by lively chatter, a glowing room, and food and wine to match.

2 of our party had never been before and thus the occasion. It was wonderful from a beverage on the patio in the beautiful weather to the dinner ending dessert. Hot food hot, cold food cold, our waiter was extremely competent(Randy). Best part was the Seafood tower, worth every penny.

I have heard many great things about Killen's Steakhouse. We finally had the opportunity to enjoy the experience first hand. It was so worth it! Everything was delicious. The wait staff was great and very attentive to our needs. We shared baked oysters and asparagus as appetizers and enjoyed all of our steaks. They were all cooked perfectly. We also shared fried shrimp, potatoes, crab cakes, and carrot cake. The wine selection made by Larry was perfect with our meal.

Maybe it was because of the holiday season, but it was louder than I expected. Service started off great but once it got busier, it took a while to refill my drink, put my order in and box up left overs. Food was great, just service was a little slow.

Just a date night with the wife. Have been to the BBQ place several times, but never the steakhouse.

We ordered the bacon-wrapped scallops as an appetizer. They paired it with potato and spinach. It came with 3 scallops. We both ate one and took the other home.

My wife had a French 75 and I had a Celis Raspberry Lambic. Both were reasonably priced and came out quickly.

I ordered the 16 oz Marble Domestic Waygu ribeye, medium rare.

My wife ordered a filet mignon, medium.

For sides we shared the creamed corn, Brussels sprouts, and the broccoli and cheese risotto.

My steak was excellent and my wife said hers was the best she’s ever had.

The sides were good and the portions quite large.

For dessert we shared the carrot cake.

Overall I was pleased with the food and the service.

The noise level was somewhat moderate due to the layout of the building.

Overall excellent with a few distractions from the food hitting it out of the park.
Too much Black Pepper on steaks for my palate.

The steak and main entrees were excellent as was the Creme Brulee Bread Pudding dessert. I had my first "so-so" dessert at Killen's which was the apple Napoleon. I have loved the Carrot Cake, but the last time I got it was "different" with whipped cream instead of cream cheese frosting and so did not select it this time. I will try it again the next time as Killen's is one of our favorite restaurants and we will be going back again and again.

What a wonderful time we had! Celebrated a birthday and anniversary and both were acknowledged with cards, small desserts. James, our waiter, was extremely good. Attentive and the right amount of interaction. Food was excellent and prepared perfectly. Everyone from the hostess, bartender, and waiter were attentive and pleasant. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Killen's, we'll be back!

Celebrating our 12 year Anniversary, we decided to try this place because I passed it so many times over the past year. Great Ambience, and service. Crab cake was awesome. My wife is Vegetarian, and ordered the their baked potato and a vegan soup which she said was good. I ordered a 16oz ribeye, and have to say I was not impressed. I ordered Medium, but it seemed to be a notch below well done. It was dry, and just not good at all. They dont serve A-1, but they do have their own house made sauce, and it wasn't that great. I will give this establishment another shot due to great service, and close proximity to our home.

Killen’s lived up to the hype. I was skeptical of Killen’s being on all these “best restaurant” lists. We had appetizers (crab fingers and turkey gumbo) that were delicious. The 18-ounce wet-aged ribeye was perfect for sharing. The sautéed mushrooms, asparagus and lobster macaroni and cheese were good sides for the ribeye. I waited over a year and a half to finally dine here and it was worth the wait. My husband is hard to please and he was impressed with how good the food tasted. I can’t wait to dine there again.

Overall the food was great however, we were celebrating a birthday and wrote that on my reservations and nothing was mentioned to us about a birthday by the waiter. I had to ruin the surprise and tell the waiter we are celebrating a birthday then we pick a dessert And they charged us for it. Our tab was $800 dollars the least he could of done is comped our dessert since it was a birthday we were celebrating . Was not happy about that and probably will not come again.

My husband and I went to Killen’s for the first time for a date night. Overall our experience was good but would have been great if the service was better. When we looked at reviews everyone had great things to say about service and food, so we had great expectations! Our waiter, Kristoper, was knowledgeable in the menu when we asked questions and we told him it was our first time dining there. After he took our order he never once checked up on us except to refill our drinks once. Never asked how our food was or seemed attentive to us throughout the night. Definitely would go back but would hope for better service next time.

The steak we had was the best we've even eaten. However, the lobster that was recommended was less than stellar. Very little taste, and at $40 I expected better. The ambiance of the restaurant was also off putting upon entering. Very loud, and obnoxious groups made the restaurant sound like a stadium full of people. Price was fair, aside from the lobster. I would be willing to pay for the delicious wagyu again, and again.

It's a special treat to go to Killen's. It's just this time the steaks were cooked a bit too much. They were a little dry and we actually returned one steak. Service was excellent and overall we enjoyed ourselves.
