At most steak restaurants, I will get a ribeye- but the filet here is so perfect, I get it every time. Best when topped with the lump crabmeat and bearnaise.

When my family comes to visit, they always want to go to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse - Downtown. We’ve celebrated my husband and I’s engagement, my 25th birthday and now my dad’s 62nd birthday there! Every time we have excellent food, wine, service, and an overall incredible experience. And this time was no different!

Everything at this steakhouse was amazing except for my steak. I ordered the porterhouse. Someone asked me to cut into to see if it was cooked to order but left before he could see for himself. Overcooked. The steak was (to me) well under seasoned. I cut strips off so that I could find the middle that was still medium rare. When it was time to doggie bag, I only got was was left on the bone and almost 1/2 my steak was discarded. While overcooked for steak night I would have turned it into something at home. Everything else was exceptional (including the service). It was just my steak that was disappointing.

The service was outstanding.. I don’t like to send food back, but however; the ribeyes we ordered were rather tough.. Our waiter and the manager insisted on replacing our steaks and comped us with additional sides.. The new ribeyes we got were fantastic.. Thank you for making our daughter’s 21st bday a special one!

This was our 3rd time to visit Pappas Steakhouse downtown. The food and service were both outstanding. Our server, Phillip, was extremely friendly and helpful, we will ask to be seated in his section in the future. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, exactly the way we ordered them. Definitely highly recommend!

Food and service was great! My husband and I were visiting from out of state, celebrating our wedding anniversary. Our server Andrew was amazing. Very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Would def recommend for a special occasion or fancy night out.

My only complaint (and it wasn’t the biggest deal) is that we were seated in one of the side rooms near the kitchen. While the servers and bussers waited for their food we could hear all of their side conversations. Could have done without that. But overall a great experience.

Got a chance to experience an A5 Wagyu New York strip. Melts in your mouth and feels like the cow was made of butter. Filet was very beefy and seasoned well. It could not have been better. The rest of the meal was very good and the sides portions were large enough to feed two Texans. We might have ordered to much. I recommend the mushrooms cooked in veal fat and I normally avoid mushrooms like the plague. Servers were very knowledgeable and friendly.

As always an outstanding experience. Our food is always perfect with great attention and recommendations by our waiter Baron. We couldn't find the Pinot Noir we liked on the wine menu but the sommelier new what we were looking for and suggested a delicious alternative. We will definitely be back.

The food and service is what justifies $150-175/person bill. The steaks and sides were great, but the wedge salad was disappointing. The service was very slow and was very disappointing. The waiter was significantly over stretched

When you play a premium, you expect excellent service. This visit Pappas came up short.
