Love going to Pappas Bros., been going almost 20 years. Outstanding service and attentive staff, but tonight the steak was not on point. Split the 40 oz Porterhouse, but I’m pretty sure it was basically unseasoned. Sides, apps and desert were great, but steak was not up to par given price. Didn’t want to raise an issue as it was my birthday, but PB needs to make sure steaks are up to their excellent standards due to competition and pressure. Hope it is not the new norm, as I will be back.

The King of Houston Steakhouses, Pappa's has had held that crown for at least the 21 years I've lived here byt I suspect longer. When it comes to steak, Houston is blessed with some of the best restaurants in the country but it's the total experience that sets Pappa's Brothers apart from the others. Competitively priced with other upper end Steakhouses, the service is second to none and the ambience gives it a feel you won't find anywhere else. This is a Texas Steakhouse at it's finest, you won't be disappointed.

Son’s birthday: Complimentary (huge) cheesecake was a pleasant surprise. But both of us will be struggling at the gym for a week to get back in shape 😊. Our server (John) is wonderful. This is the second time in the past 2-3 months that he served us, and he’s a jewel.

Awesome dining experience! Great food and well seasoned. No need to add salt. Impeccable customer service from everyone on duty, including the valet staff. We were celebrating a birthday. Every staff member we encountered knew we were celebrating a birthday and acknowledged the guest of honor. Everyone was very attentive and the men were absolute gentlemen. I do plan on going again. The Pappas food chain has never disappointed me. This was my first time at the steakhouse, and I was very impressed.

The service was excellent. Appetizers and sides were generous and tasty. The vaunted dry aged prime rib eye was a great disappointment, under seasoned and tough. Desserts were large and well done.

Everything BUT the waiter. I appreciate attentive, friendly service but this guy was over the top. He continually referenced my boyfriend and I as “ladies and gentlemen”.... so annoying! We splurged and had appetizer, cocktail, bottle of wine, dessert and after dinner drinks... oh, and steak too! Food is always great and I love the dim lighting but the waiter needs to tone it down and back off.

Thank you Pappas Steakhouse! The food and service were outstanding. Our waiter, John, was very attentive and took great care of us. It was our anniversary and the restaurant bent over backwards to make it a lovely evening. We were too full for dessert, but our waiter surprised us with a chocolate cake to go (on the house)! We have been coming here for years, and it is still one of my favorite restaurants in Houston.

Excellent food at a premium price. Very pretentious wait staff to an uncomfortable point given this restaurant is in a strip mall outside the galleria. Instead of showing you what a nice place they are, they made a point of repeatedly telling you how lucky you were to be dining there. Plenty of similar high quality steakhouses in Houston without the airs and some of which are a much greater value.

We have traveled all over the world and eaten in top restaurants all over Europe and Asia and the Pappas Brothers Steakhouse I’m Houston is our favorite restaurant. The attention to detail is unparalleled. The hot, freshly baked bread is delicious. The soups always have generous amounts of shrimp or crab meat. We had the shrimp and corn chowder it was outstanding. It was creamy but had chunks of shrimp and corn too. We had the filet medallions topped with crab and shrimp. Pappas brothers only uses jumbo lump crab meat. You will never see the cheap crab with tuna like consistency. The filet came with a Bernadine sauce. Mouth watering! We topped it off with the turtle pie. All the desserts look amazing but we can never seem to get away from the turtle pie which is unbelievable. We have eaten at Trulucks, Vic and Anthony’s, capital grille, Mastros, Morton’s, RUTH Chris and Perry’s. Pappas Brothers steakhouse is absolutely a cut above all these places. Whenever we have gone anywhere else to celebrate a birthday or anniversary- they sometimes don’t even bring it up. Trulucks never mentioned even a happy birthday neither did Vic and Anthony’s. At Pappas brothers they wish you a happy birthday from the moment you check in - to the assistant that seats you to the server - to the candle in the dessert with Happy Birthday written on the plate. They really make it so special. We will not eat at any other steakhouse in Houston as we are always disappointed!! Thank you to Pappas Brothers Steakhouse for paying so much attention to detail and for dozens of memorable dinners!!
