My reservation was set at 6:30 and didn’t get seated until 6:55. Waited 11 minutes before we were addressed by the waiter. Order a wedge salad, they left the bacon off. We were finished by the time the waiter brought the bacon. Tea glass ran emptied every single time and we had to ask for the refills. And significant amount of time was spent waiting on him to return for each refill. Say occurred when he offered a desert that took 15 minutes after meal to be served. We didn’t leave until 9:00 and service was worst than have ever had and certainly not in line with the cost of the meal.

Great steak! Great service! Very good dessert! No unnecessary seasoning on the steak, just salt and pepper.
If they would trim the price by 20%-25% it would be a better value.

I had one of the best steaks that I've ever had. I don't think that it's the best value for a steak (I can pay a whole lot less for just a little bit less steak). I don't recommend the mashed potatoes, but the skillet potatoes were amazing. We loved the Steakhouse Salad as well.

Dinner there was as good as it has ever been. Steaks were perfectly cooked, the lobster bisque is still the best in town and sides and the chocolate cake all rocked. Had outstanding service from Scott and everyone assisting him. Hands down best in town at what they do!

Everyone found the food amazing.
Asking for a beer in a bottle and getting it served in the bottle was impossible
Bathroom stalls were disgusting. Do to digestive distress unrelated to my dining there I required a couple of trips to the bathroom, I had to clean the stools each I used them.

Food and atmosphere was good. However, I was trying to have a business discussion and we were constantly interrupted by waiter trying to up sell us, even after I ask to to chill out. We put in our steak order as per his request before we finished our first cocktail. I specifically ask if it was too early to put the order in because we wanted to talk over a cocktail. Of course, they steaks came out before I finished my salad and 'first' cocktail so I felt he wasn't really listening. Waiter needs to be more sensitive and less focused on "processing' us through.

We were incredibly disappointed in this experience. It was a classic "it's expensive so it must be good" setup, but the emperor was definitely not wearing his clothes last night. We are frequent diners around Dallas and are not put off by high prices in and of themselves, but these prices *did not in any way correspond* to the quality of the steak on offer. Everything was cooked perfectly (1 rare ribeye and 1 medium-rare strip and 1 medium-rare ribeye in our group), but they were lacking in the wonderful marbling and flavor that were expecting for steaks that are priced between $50-$60. The crab cakes, while delicious, were a tiny 2-cake serving at $27. The wines were priced at somewhere between outlandish and absurd (the two we chose were priced at 3x *retail* which means at least 4x wholesale, if not more).
Our waiter managed to be both irritatingly, intensely in our faces most of the time, while never being around when we actually needed him. Our steaks came out about 1 minute after we had finished our appetizers, and as we were wanting to order another bottle of wine, we ended up having to wait more than 10 minutes to actually get the wine list and another few minutes to get the second bottle, at which point we were mostly done with our steaks. The sides were excellent - if over-priced. Maybe you're seeing a theme here? 2 appetizers, 3 steaks, a burrata salad, 2 sides, 2 bottles of wine ($65 and $95, nothing was available under $50), a $7 (ha!) bottle of Pellegrino, plus tax and tip, came to $600 for 4 people. It might have been worth it as a $400 meal if the steaks had been of even middling quality; as it was, it was an insulting experience all the way around, made all the more embarrassing by how much we had talked up the greatness of Texas steaks to our friends visiting from Italy who joined us for dinner. We will definitely not be back.

Very dark and very noisy. For the price I was expecting a better tasting steak and sides. Perry's Steakhouse in uptown has this place beat.

Early Valentine’s Day dinner with old friends. Third time we have been able to surprise our wives over 35 years for Valentine’s Day. Had a great time. But my steak was over cooked compared to my wife’s - medium request. Our waiter was not as amicable as some we’ve had in the past. Sometimes a good waiter can make an evening much more fun. I did not complain about the steak. It was our friends first time there and didn’t want to distract. Wine room is always a good room. It was probably a 3 1/2 due to high expectations. The first time I went to Pappas, I was really disappointed in service. Did not go back for years. Many places to choose from in Dallas.

We had to wait till roughly 8:20pm to be seated for our 7:45pm reservation. The service was good but the food was ok. My wife and I have been other steak house such as Perry’s and Al Bernats which the food and service was much better. The only reason we came to papa bros is because strongly recommended it but more than likely won’t come back.

The dinner itself was wonderful, food was great and servers attentive. My issue was with my reservation. It was made well in advance for 7:45pm and again confirmed by phone the day before. However, we were not sat until a full hour later. Not only was the long wait annoying to stand around waiting but the lengthy delay forced us to cancel our post-dinner plans. I spent over $1800 on dinner that night and for that price level of restaurant I expect more predictable timing.

We went for my birthday. The service was exceptional. But the amount of food for the price was just a bit more expensive then similar restaurants in the DFW metroplex. We started with oysters and shrimp cocktail. Both were very good. Then we had king crab and the 40 ounce steak to share. Both were good but not exceptional. We were actually planning on getting the seafood tower but speaking with folks there we decided against it. They did give a choice of desserts for my birthday. I’m a cheesecake fan and this did not disappoint. 3 of us shared it and I still brought half of it home. It was the best part of the meal.

Excellent as always. Pappas Bros. has managed to keep the quality of food and service at a very high level for a very long time. That's something other places can't seem to do. I think that takes close attention by management to make sure employees are treated well and kept on their toes. Good is great's worst enemy.
On this particular visit, my wife and I were seated in an area that had a very unhappy 1 year old with a very loud way of expressing it. We felt bad for the situation but decided to request a table change so our experience for the evening wasn't dictated by it. Pappas staff jumped into action and had us at a new table within a couple minutes, leaving our table open for others reading this review who may not have an issue spending an hour in this situation at a place like Pappas. Very much appreciated Pappas management staff! Well done!

We started in the bar. The piano player was pleasant and the volume was appropriate.

At dinner, we started with Foie Gras. It was excellent. However, $36 seemed rich to me. We also enjoyed a fillet mignon, sea bass and lamb chops. Each entre was prepared perfectly.

We finished with amazing pecan pie.

Pappas provided great food and a great evening.
