First visit to the restaurant for our 17th wedding anniversary. Was not disappointed. Our waiter, Randy, was fantastic. Very patient and explained the menu very well.
Never got asked if we were celebrating a special occasion, we were.
My husband and I recently moved to the area and wanted a nice dinner without driving into Houston traffic. This place was great, he ate a rib-eye, which he loved, and I ate from the happy hour menu! Sautéed crab fingers and fried asparagus. Our drinks were great and he loved the Mac n cheese!
We attended based on the restaurant's national reputation. The food was excellent. The dining area was open and a bit loud. While we chose the Wagyu option at the waiter's suggestion, we concluded the added price might be more than the added value. The online wine listing was out-of-date, so we had to choose an alternate wine than the one anticipated. (The alternate was good.) We did have one miscommunication with the waiter on an item ordered, but he quickly corrected the delivery. Overall, we had a great time, and are glad we checked it out, but next time will find a comparable venue closer to home.
Celebrated my mom and dad’s 65th wedding anniversary...it was amazing...thanks again Ronnie and staff.
Brought my parents here for their 37th wedding anniversary. The smoked pork belly is an amazing appetizer. The caesar salad was good, nothing outstanding, my filet had a great flavor and the creamed corn was an excellent side. Our server Dan made the evening perfect. He was very attentive especially to my parents.
Absolutely amazing! Definitely worth the money. Best meal we've ever had
Very nice. Will go again. Randy was excellent server.
Best food...ever. I always get fantastic professional Wait Staff that are above and beyond the best. Thank you Killen's - again - for an unforgettable dining experience.
Excellent food and service! From appetizers to desserts, everything was delightful!
The steaks were cooked to perfection. And the jumbo shrimp were fantastic. The Ambiance was great. The service was outstanding. I will definitely be back. Never had to ask for a thing. They kept an eye on everything. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was great, Service was good, And Spaced out the Appetizers, Drinks, Salads, Before Entree-Perfect
First time diners. The food lived up to its reputation, the carrot cake dessert was exceptional, the dirty martini hit the spot, and the staff was very attentive.
Great food. Attentive staff. Our server was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all items on the menu. We drove over an hour to dine there and it was worth the trip.
It was a fantastic night!!! The food was absolutely incredible and the service was spectacular! I gave the food 4 stars only because my fiancé began to have a mild allergic reaction (he has a shellfish allergy). We did not order any seafood at all (French Onion soup, Iceberg wedge salad, steak, broccoli and cheese risotto and Brussel sprouts). We asked the waiter if any of the food had any contact with shellfish and at first said no, but then checked and found out that the Brussel sprouts could have been cooked in the same oil as shrimp. Luckily, his reaction was mild and he just went home and took some Benedryl. The Brussel sprouts were delicious, but my suggestion is to either not cook common allergens in the same oil/containers or at least label it on the menu. Thank you for a wonderful experience!! We will definitely be back! ❤️
Delicious filet, extremely tender and flavorful. They also had a side special of crawfish macaroni and cheese that was to die for!!
The restaurant is a beautiful sight when you walk in - absolutely stunning! HOWEVER!!! THE NOISE HITS YOU LIKE A WALL! It receded a little once we were seated; but it was still uncomfortable and difficult to have conversation. We did have a great time; the food was fantastic and upon close investigation there was something for everyone’s taste and budget. The best thing however was our server - a personable young woman whose name I couldn’t hear :( but she was awesome (She has a dog named Benelli and wears a duck band ring if that helps!). She made me forget about the noise level as did an awesome Manhattan but I don’t know if I would return only because of the noise!
Great experience. Vehicle was valet parked and returned quickly without damage. Wonderful whisky and wine selection. Entrees were prepared just as we ordered. We split our salads and side dishes and it was still a lot of food. Filet was perfect, the Red Snapper was delicious. Dessert put us over the edge, it was their carrot cake. Don’t go to Killen’s without having this dessert.
I’ve been going to Killens steakhouse for the past 8 years and have always had a great meal! From the time they were a small 80-90 top restaurant to their new location it’s always been consistently good. Good job to Ronnie Killen and his team!
The food and service were great, the steaks here are some of the best cuts and flavor I have eaten. This is the best place to get a steak in Pearland, and don't forget to try the carrot cake for dessert.
Killen's food never disappoints! Our server, Bryan, was attentive and personable.
An Excellent Experience!!!! The food - every bite of it was good and worth the value. The staff was great and the atmosphere is exactly what you want on a special night out or as I saw with a few groups it looks like a great place for group dinners too. Just Excellent
Consistently excellent food. The main dining room is rather loud (at least on a weekend night), but the side rooms (lined with wine bottles) are quiet and relatively intimate. The wait staff is hard working and unobtrusive.
Our server Chad was amazing. He was funny, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in serving us our meal and requests. This was our first time to Killen's steakhouse, and it will not be our last. Everything was outstanding. The restaurant is very clean, the noise is not so loud, the amount of space between table and guests was near perfect. We have a wonderful experience.
It was our anniversary and we had a nice greeting. Our server was polite and helpful with the wine list but after that it all seemed rushed. Our appetizer came out within 5 minutes of ordering and our entrees within 10 minutes of the appetizer. The steaks are completely crusted on both sides with black pepper...which I am sure many people enjoy, but I do not. I could not eat after one bite. I tried to trim off but was mangling the meat so left for my husband to take home. We ordered Brussel sprouts and broccoli and cheese risotto as sides. The brussel sprouts were completely raw and the risotto was raw broccoli and gobs of cheese. I couldn’t even find any rice! The server never once asked how everything was....which I was shocked about because I would think if you see a steak pretty much untouched and one of the two sides untouched you as a trained server should ask. I was sad. We had a good experience at Killen’s when they first moved to the new location but based on this experience I would be reluctant to go back.
Great food and service. Fantastic bourbon selection at the bar.
I usually frequent Killens once a quarter entertaining colleagues, business guests or international customers. However I have noticed lately (4Q last year and my last meal this past week) that quality of service is declining. If you include 20% gratuity for my party size on a bill that is $1500, I better not have to wait to order wine or my meal. I expect to be given some attention to ensure my guests are enjoying their streak. Not once did any of the staff check to see if we liked our steaks or if they were prepared to our liking. I had to ask for bread several times when dinner was served and never received it. Also, unlike other steakhouses, for a party of 10, I would expect a manager to greet us at some point. I guess I am used to service at other high-end steakhouses or even at run-of-the-mill steakhouses. Save your money and get friendlier, attentive service at Texas Roadhouse. Ugh!
Had dinner with friends for a birthday celebration. Service was good and the food was outstanding. I had the snapper with lump crab meat, which my friends thought was an odd choice at a steakhouse, but it was the yummiest lump crab meat sauce on the best snapper filet I've ever had. The others enjoyed their beef filets. It was particularly quiet on this evening, because the restaurant wasn't very crowded. We definitely will go back.
Can’t say enough good things about Killen’s Steakhouse!
Appetizers, sides, entrees, and dessert exceeded our expectations.
James our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive, but never hoovering.
Drinks at the bar were innovative and there is an extensive variety of beer and wine.
Great dining experience and will definitely return.
Filet was small and not as good as last. Last time the meat was juicy and flavorful. Was not worth the premium price.
We loved our experience there. We attended for my birthday and could not be more happy. The New York strip Wagu flight was amazing. Had a Port flight with dessert and loved it. Only thing missing was the service when we arrived. It did not seem that we were waited on for about 10 minutes. It is a good thing we were not in a rush. When we were greeted, it was amazing, but it did take a while when it was not that busy.
Very tasty! Nice patio.
Great ambiance, service and quality! Best steak so far in Houston
We have been going to Killen's for years, and we've never been disappointed. Service is excellent, and the crab cakes and carrot cake are as delicious as the steaks.
Always top notch, from food to service. Tried a new dessert with White Russian ice cream!
VERY loud! WAY too loud for a business meeting. Had headache by the time we left.
Food was great as always, service - James was outstanding as always.
Just too loud to do business.
This is the second attempt at Killen's, the first in the old 'shed' and now in the newer surroundings which is basically a re-modeled former restaurant. Surely a new restaurant would have been a better option rather than taking the cheaper, compromised option? On entering the door the lighting is too high for a romantic dinner, the tables all lined up in the pit and diners in anything from smart casual to flip flops, shorts and t-shirts. If there is a dress code it is not enforced.
Cocktails at the bar consisted of weak gin & tonics and inattentive bar staff who turned his attention to a fellow diner and disappeared from the area to attend to him before returning without an apology for the delay.
Dinner was what we came for and generally good but not exceptional, partly due to the two items we had selected not being available - shouldn't we be told that with the menu and shouldn't they ensure adequate supplies to have everything available? Killen's did not have anything we couldn't get in several other restaurants in Houston, but we live in Pearland, Killen's is in Pearland and we felt we should try it. We will probably travel further next time and get what we come out for.
High expectations with low returns.
I have dinned at several upscale steak houses throughout the state; Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Corpus Christi. This was the best, even though is was a little noisy. I will definitely return someday.
Service was great and so was the food. Dry aged ribeye was spectacular
