The food was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. Our server was not so wonderful but the other servers stepped in to save the day. Patrick is the real deal in waiters as he stepped in as needed in lieu of the assigned waiter. Overall wonderful.

We took our adult children out for dinner, using a gift card that they gave their dad for Father's Day. It had been a few years since we'd been to B both my husband and son ordered their own individual steaks (they could have shared one) and we ordered a couple of sides for the table. We had more than enough to share a little seafood with the guys and bring home some leftover steak from all three orders. We'll be back.

I know this is a very popular restaurant. Not exactly sure why. Was a special occasion and we had five folks. Honestly, the appetizers were OK. The main course was over priced and really OK for all of us, just a little pricey. The wine was overpriced which we drank a lot of! The service was professional. Besides that were ordered with the dinner mediocre to poor Brussels sprouts, hashbrowns soggy, french fries soft and not crisp, salad OK. I’m not a huge fan and will probably not go back.

Great hospitality, great food and great service. Jay and Miguel were great and we spoke at length with the general manager. The steaks were excellent, as were the sides. Their pricing is at the high end of steakhouses. It is not a large space and the noise level was more than personally preferred in a fine dinner setting. The wine list is excellent, as was the wine service itself. Overall an excellent experience we will return to.

Sunday brunch at B&B Butchers and Restaurant was one of the best meals I have eaten in my lifetime. The ambiance was impeccable. Russell was our waiter and took excellent care of us, he made sure we understood the menu and made fantastic recommendations. The carpet bagger on the half shell was delightful! The flavor combinations were exquisite. We were there to celebrate my father's birthday and he thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. I can't wait to visit again.

The menu is extensive, original and diverse. In our three visits we've yet to have a meal that was less than outstanding. It's a hot spot and is rapidly becoming one of the most popular restaurants in Houston.

Excellent service. Steaks pretty good -mine was a little undercooked. Appetizers were ok—calamari a little too fries for me, oyster excellent, beefsteak tomato salad a little underwhelming Desserts out of this world. Could two were a few regulars here who got extra attention so there seems to be a solid following.

North American Waygu ribeye. Best steak on. The menu. Enough for two. Medium rare. Drinks were excellent. Mac and cheese, Brussels sprouts and lobster mashed potatoes were very good.
Service needs improvement. Very slow on food delivery.
Waiter had 5 tables and not enough help delivering food, removing dishes and refilling glasses. I understand that the service industry is having hiring issues, but for these prices, they need to focus more and do more to make the dining experience 5 star if you are charging 5 star prices. Alot of management walking around. Team work needs work.

Party of 5 - We sat out on the patio for the 4th of July.

The booking was a little confusing, because the event page on both BB Lemon, and BB Butcher said they had a 4th of July BBQ in the parking lot, plus the hostess confirming my reservation mentioned the special of wagyu hot dogs and hamburgers for the holiday, too - but neither were present when we arrived, and the server said there were no specials - still not sure what the confusion was, but all that aside; My husband and I are quite easy to please - so we just sat and ordered. The cocktails were excellent, our appetizers were mediocre (Shrimp Cocktail, and Wagyu Carpaccio) the wine was great, my filet mignon, made Oscar Style was amazing, and my husbands lamb aswell - cooked to perfection, with lots of flavor; and the Brussel sprouts were definitely the best side on the menu. Our friends on the other hand, weren't as happy with the food and service. My sisters Oysters weren't cleaned properly, and had sand in them, and there was a pretty long wait time between services (our appetizers were cleared before they took our dinner order, and drinks were left empty for a while). Although service was lagging in delivery time, they were incredibly kind and attentive. Personally, I feel like we had the best seat in the house, with an amazing view of the Houston skyline, pair that with an open mind (and wallet), a steak, and a glass of wine - I'm happy. But there were definitely flaws present and it was as "incredible" as I expected, although still a great way to celebrate.

We mainly went for the seafood appetizers today. Crab cake is all crab, no fillers. Calamari was delicious, best in town. And of course the bacon-crab stuffed- shrimp with sweet chili sauce was amazing. We ordered two of those. Dipping the calamari in the left over sweet-chili sauce is a combination that needs to be added to the menu.
Wagyu Skirt Steak was tender best simple steak I ever had.
Our waiter gave great input into the wine selections for the meals, and now I have 2 new favorite wines.

Service was outstanding. Personal attention from our server, along with several check-ins from different management people made it feel very inviting. Best service I have seen post-Covid. Then there was the food- excellent cold water oysters on the half shell, carpet-bagger appetizers, followed by the Chateaubriand... extremely good!
