The food was amazing. I caught our server roll his eyes at us and I felt like we weren’t really his priority.

I went to STQ on Wednesday night with a group of seven. From the front desk to the bartender to the table service, I give them a 10. I was not disappointed, and fell in love with the short ribs, which I've not had before. I always get the bone in ribeye, but the short ribs blew us away. Also the bread pudding and SMOKED chocolate cake were a huge hit. Thank you for a great evening, and I'll be back soon! BTW I came from San Antonio and had this reservation before I even made my travel plans.

Client Lunch...
Food served cold. Did replace.
Few people in restaurant ..
Food sat at pickup station too long.
Client commented as she was facing the kitchen.
First server disappeared but another young man noticed and tried to help.
Flag down to get check. PS No bread served at lunch... Strange..

Second time for lunch in a month. Won't go back at lunch but
do frequent at dinner.

Great food as expected from a Killen’s establishment. We’ve had dinner and lunch here. It is a small place so the noise level may be an issue for some. The 3 course lunch is a great value.

Meal was good, but waiter forgot to charge us for wine. Then called to add wine to bill after we left, and added 20% gratuity.

The food and service were amazing. The only reason i give it 4 stars is because i thought some of the spotlighting that they had was kind of harsh, they should invest in some better lighting that doesnt shine in your face.

The food was outstanding! Things we loved were the porkbelly appetizer and the bacon bread pudding. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, tender and flavorful. The restaurant is very small with about 20 tables, an open room that gets fairly noisy. Pricey, but worth it for special occasions.

I have eaten here several times. This was probably my least favorite and not exactly sure why. Maybe I just need a change. The habanero pork belly is still outstanding as is the NOLA shrimp. Highly recommend both. Our service was also outstanding. This time for our main courses we had the dry aged ribeye, New York strip and country fried ribeye steak. The dry aged steaks had a strange smell and taste due to the dry aging. Would not recommend unless you are use to this. The country fried ribeye was extremely tender and tasty as were the mashed potatoes and green beans that came with it. I do suggest it if you like comfort food such as this.

My 4th visit to STQ and questionable whether I will visit again. I ordered the Pork Chop and there was a definite decline in quality and the size of the cut from last visit. Usually any Killen's meal is a delight but this dinner was mediocre and the prices are OK for something special but not appropriate for what I was served. However, my guest had the Short Rib and he was very happy that I had suggested that selection.

The food was outstanding -- a carnivore's delight. Our server apparently likes to hear himself talk; he paid more attention to himself than to us. We shared a meal with good friends, celebrating their birthdays, so we ate more "family style" than "each person order separately" -- and this seemed to annoy our server. The meal was outstanding and a very good experience overall, but we paid a very good check, too.

Lovely, creative menu, delicious cocktails. No moderately priced wine by the bottle. We set a new high water mark for the cost for dinner for 2 (special occasion; over 300.00 with tip - no bottle of wine). No "free" desert for birthdays.

Our waiter made us feel rushed, pushing us to order the next course. At the end he brought us the bill and didn’t even give us the chance to order another round of drinks.
Most of the starters were rather good - their pork belly dish was probably one of the best I’ve ever had. That said, their steaks were below par for the price, also unevenly cooked. The entire experience was diminished by the poor service of a waiter that was pushy, yelled instead of talking and spit while doing so. Not a place I’d go back to.

Our party of four included two business visitors who had never experienced Killen's. They loved the oysters, short ribs, smoked filet, and carrot cake. Our service was fabulous. The noise level seemed excessive when we arrived, but I was delighted that we had no problems holding a detailed business discussion with our guests.

Waited 15 mins after being seated when we finally asked if someone could help us. Food was ok but I’ve eaten at several of his restaurants and was disappointed with the food here. It was ok at best. Also requested in the reservation about it being a birthday and nothing was ever mentioned.
