fabulous----we have been spoiled by the fried tomatoes as an appetizer which is not on the menu. You didn't have them Saturday night. That was the first time we've ever eaten with you that we didn't have them so that was a disappointment.

The food that we ate was excellent though . judith

If you're looking for a good steak cooked correctly, aged correctly then you by all means should come to Killens Steakhouse, Pearland, Tx.(the mother ship as our waiter called it). Service, ambiance was beyond par!!!

Killen's came so highly rated. We were unimpressed. We order the dry aged ribeye and it tasted like pot toast. Dry, tough, little flavor. The sides were good and we enjoy the bottle of wine we picked. The atmosphere is run of the mill. Nothing outstanding about our experience.

The food is always great at Killen's, and this time was no exception. My wife had blackened shrimp over noodles with a lemon butter sauce and I had a chicken fried steak. Not typical choices for a steak house but both entrees were fabulous.

We had a dozen oysters Rockefeller for an appetizer, and they were some of the beat I have had. These oysters were from the northeast rather than the Gulf so they were significantly smaller, but had superb flavor. I also had French onion soup and my wife had a crab cake before our meal. Both were as good as we remembered.

Our desserts were ordered to go and were a carrot cake and a bread pudding. I'm not much of a dessert guy but tried a little of each and they both were incredible. Our waiter surprised us with a complimentary dessert with our check as we were there celebrating our 26th anniversary. It was a tiramisu layered with a pudding (I think) over and over in a rocks glass. Awesome!!

That brings me to our waiter. We have never had less than stellar service at Killen's but I'd venture to say that this trip was the best service we have had not only there but maybe anywhere we have ever eaten. Randy has been in the restaurant industry for 13 years and with Killen's for over 5, and his expertise was clear. He was friendly, engaging, and accommodating. Je was at the table every time we needed him but never hovered or intruded on our meal. If you dine here, ask for Randy and you will be glad you did!

All in all, another 5 star visit to one of the best steak houses in Texas.

I made a reservation later in the day and I still got a decent time for a good table. We were sat rarely fast and had an amazing waiter. His name was Larry and he was informative and kind. Every dish we had was delicious! My husband and I only go out once a month, and I’m so glad we picked this for our November outing. Thank you so much! Can’t wait to come back.

Great place for special events! Server was good & recommended items. Food was plentiful and we shared a steak & still had leftovers. 2nd round of bread was slow to table but that’s the kitchen’s fault. Our table was socially distanced but many on the main floor were not 6 feet apart.

While Killen's may be a little pricier than most, the food and service is definitely well worth it! Steaks cooked to perfection, flavorful side dishes, and that carrot cake served warm with cream cheese icing. Yum!!!!

What a sensational restaurant. Great Covid procedures. Social distancing in place. The Wet aged rib eyes, jumbo gulf shrimp, Caesar salad, and crab cakes were all excellent. Overall great value for the quality of food and ambiance. Superb friendly service that wasn’t overly intrusive. Please note that they currently aren’t offering valet service due to Covid but have ample parking. We can’t wait to return!

Had a wonderful tike thanks to our wonderfully and personable server! Food was great, I just wish my filet mignon was a bit bigger, but I understand the cut and type of meat are not like the lower end steakhouses.

Group of 6 of us went to celebrate a couple birthdays. Food was outstanding! Ordered an appetizer platter to share. The crab cake was excellent! For my entree, I had the filet with Oscar sauce on top. Both the steak and the sauce were phenomenal. Service was a bit slow at times but adequate. My favorite side was the risotto. Had creme brûlée for dessert and it was also good. Wine selection was very extensive.

Killen's Steakhouse never disappoints. The food is always exceptional and the selection of cocktails/wine is great too. The steaks came out perfect and the sides (broccoli/cheese risotto and salads).

Only issue (minor) was the coffee was weak/watered down. Not sure if the French press was rushed or short on coffee grounds.

We recently moved to Pearland and have looked forward to our visit to Killen's Steakhouse. We were unable to visit due to the pandemic until now. I was celebrating my birthday. There was a pre-printed Birthday Card on the table acknowledging the event - but it was nothing special. Compared to other fine dining steakhouses, the food was comparable but the service was lacking. We aren't sure if this was due to staffing issues because of the pandemic or not. For instance, our salads were delivered before our bar drinks even arrived. The wine that I ordered was underwhelming and plain - I guess I should have looked at the wine list myself. When the servers delivered our entrees they didn't know which entrée belonged to whom. For the money we spent on dinner we may find ourselves driving back into Houston for our special meals. We may limit our future dining experiences to the bar area.

The food was delicious definitely would recommend. We went to celebrate our birthdays we didn’t get the service we were expecting from our server as we had heard from other customers being our first time we expected a little more better service from our server but the food didn’t disappoint. I’m sure our server was having a bad day. Everything we ordered was delicious our Drinks, appetizers, and main
course.
