We’ve been here about three times and it was a special occasion and really just weren’t that impressed with the food overall.

Eight of us (four adults and four children) had thanksgiving dinner at B&B. The traditional thanksgiving meal was delicious, and several of our party opted for steaks instead. The prime rib was fantastic. The deserts were underwhelming, but you don't go there for the deserts. The service was friendly and efficient. The kitchen had some issues with a couple of our orders, and sent up the wrong thing (twice). Eventually it got fixed, and no one really cared as we were enjoying each other.

B&B Butchers is consistently wonderful and delicious--and the service is a step above other Houston restaurants. My mother and I recently dined in the restaurant for Thanksgiving, and we both thought it was the BEST turkey we have ever eaten! I started with a delicious salad, she had the butternut squash soup, and we both enjoyed the full turkey dinner with all of the trimmings. From the beginning of the meal that started with a warm selection of freshly-baked bread and rolls all the way through to the beautiful desserts, including pumpkin pie with a crunchy and crisp topping, everything was fabulous. I would return here without hesitation--and I have already made my next reservation!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about my first experience with you all. It was my husband birthday and I had been hearing great things about you all. Well, you did not disappoint at all. His steak was so tender and delicious. The wait staff was great and the carrot cake for his birthday was a nice surprise. Thank you for making his birthday special. He is still talking about the restaurant.

Noise level was a bit high; usually is not. Our server was not as attentive as others in the past - could be an off thing. Food was excellent.

We had a wonderful evening with clients. B&B was most accommodating as traffic had made us late by over 40 minutes. We called to let them know and they graciously moved our reservation. The service was very good, the steaks and Beef Wellington impressed and overall was very enjoyable.

Enjoyed lunch in the bright dinning room of this old brick building. There is a lengthy menu that focuses on meats of course but there is a wide variety of items and a range of prices on the menus to suit the occasion. Would have liked to sit at the rooftop but it was closed at the time. Unless you are looking for something very quiet and intimate, it is great for a business lunch.

Staff did not inform us until we arrived they could not accommodate our outside table reservation due to a wedding party. Steaks were tough and under seasoned. Waiter did not ask us how our steaks were. We left to have dessert at our favorite steakhouse in Houston (Pappas).

I made the reservation for my son and his friend who were each celebrating their 17th birthday and wanted a nice steak experience. That's all I said when I put a note in the OpenTable reservation. B&B went above and beyond in providing the kids with a great experience! They took them down to the aging rooms, explained the process, etc. The food was delicious, the server attentive and all in a great atmosphere. They both said it was the best Birthday they've ever had. Thank you so much B&B for giving them such a fun experience and further inspiring their interests!

Great food and service! Sitting in a semicircular booth was awkward for the ladies in our party and the noise level made conversation slightly challenging. Still, one of my very favorite restaurants in Houston.

Appetizers & drinks were good, wait staff was excellent. Table location kind of pinned us in center of dinning room so louder than expected w 6 tables close by. Main meal (40oz dry aged porterhouse, mushroom and garlic mashed potatoes) was “ok” for a 110$+ Steak. Steak was cooked perfect but was highly under-seasoned. Center of meat was very bland. Mashed potatoes were very liquidy almost runny and mushrooms were dry/overcooked and almost not edible. Asparagus and carrot garnished were tough and fibrous. All in all, for a $300 dinner, I wasn’t impressed and we likely wouldn’t return. I expected more from the reviews/price point. Can get more flavor and better value elsewhere. Was still nice night out, but the steak we came for was least appealing part.

4 out of 5 stars...Sound bounce in the downstairs room makes for difficult conversation at brunch. The space could stand a whole lot more soft surfaces for sure. That said, the food was spectacular(except dessert). Brunch surf and turf quesadillas and the cheesesteak sandwich were both outstanding. Service was perhaps a little too attentive, but had this been a day when we were drinking lots of adult beverages needing timely refills, the service would be spot on. Creme Brûlée arrived straight out of the fridge and while nothing wrong with it, the dessert was more like vanilla Jello pudding with a torched sugar top. Not bad, not good, not anything up to the standards the rest of the food here would lead one to expect. The restrooms vestibule reeked of chemical, Lysol? Bleach? Not sure but it triggered an asthma attack. Restroom proper was clean and fragrance free, thankfully. Valet was prompt! Also, FYI, they employ the awkward payment method where the waiter stands by the table waiting for one to finish with the card machine. This is not progress, people! Overall, we like this place because the entrees and apps are outstanding. Other areas could use some tweaking...
