    The main dishes (steaks) and sides were superb! The dessert was okay - it was nicely plated and looked like it was going to be awesome. The atmosphere/ambiance was a little bit loud, but the live piano music was a nice touch. THIS IS NOT A $$ RESTERAUNT! It was $$$ or $$$$. We loved it, but we felt a bit awkward in our very casual attire. Thanks to the staff for not turning us away and, despite our casual attire, thanks for the fantastic service.

    Went to Pappas Steakhouse in Downtown for Mother's Day with my family and parents. We were greeted by friendly hosts and the server was very pleasant. I ordered the Australian Lobster and everyone else had steaks and multiple sides. Sadly, my father's steak was very tough and chewy despite being cooked correctly (Medium Rare). I mentioned it to the server, and he didn't seem to care and didn't say anything. Luckily one of my children gave him half of her steak which was lovely. I was very disappointed with the lack of tact by the server, and we just wanted to leave as soon as we could. We declined dessert that we always get as it was awkward. Again the server was not nasty or rude in anyway and the rest of our food was lovely, but I felt bad for my dad who was really excited for the experience. Perhaps it is due to the location as we normally go to the original Galleria restaurant, and they have been consistent for the last 17 years we have dined with Pappas Steakhouse.

    Took our daughter to celebrate her birthday - we typically dine at the Dallas location, but she lives near Houston, so this was our first time. The food and service were fantastic, just like we’re accustomed to in Dallas. Caesar salad for me and lobster bisque to start for my wife and daughter - I had a sip, delicious and rich! My wife loves their lobster deviled eggs, so after the soup that was her entree, because dessert. 😂 I had the Filet Duo - two medium rare filet medallions (easily 8 oz) topped with jumbo lump crab on one and a blackened gulf shrimp on the other- both accompanied by a different sauce. Cooked to perfection and well seasoned as a big chunk of beef should be - delicious and a LOT of food. The girls shared a crème brûlée for dessert and thoroughly enjoyed it. Service is impeccable and a team effort. We had a 6 pm reservation. We finished about 7:30 and it was filling up and the noise level came up with it - but far from the loudest steakhouse experience I’ve had. Not a cheap date, but for a special occasion, well worth it

    Always a great experience. Jillian took excellent care of our table and we ran out of room long before the table ran out of food.

    There are plenty of places in Houston to get a steak, but Pappas Bros. consistently offers one of the best in town. And they match a great meal with attentive, professional service and a comfortable setting. Never disappoints.

    The side dish was too big a portion/expensive. Couldn't take it home since we had an event afterwards so it had to go to waste. Waiter mentioned it was family style but we don't like the same things. Offer 2 sizes. It was delicious. :(
