We celebrated my husbands birthday here as this was suggested by another. The beef short rid was delicious and did not disappoint! Will be back!

We've been here several times and it never lets us down. Wife had the filet and it was excellent. I had a blackened snapper dish which was fantastic. One of the better plates I've had anywhere. Pork belly was great like always. A little pricey, but it is what it is. It is worth it a couple times a year.

1st off...AMAZING SERVICE! Our waiter was present from start to finish. We had lots of questions about Killen’s other establishments. Because of Anthony’s years of experience, he answered every one of them!
The food was heavenly! My wife and I split the
Shrimp and Lobster Étouffée
Brisket Mac-n-Cheese and
Key lime Cheesecake
The portions had us wobbling out the door in complete satisfaction. We will be visiting all of Killen’s establishments often!

Great steak joint! The chef made a special plate for me as a vegetarian. If I went again I would probably order sides. My nephew loved it. The service was amazing!

My wife and I love, STQ. We go about once a quarter. We've had a good portion of the menu and I can't think of one thing that we didn't like. In fact, the biggest problem for me is that I never want to order anything other than what I've already had and loved. Cherry Habanero Pork Belly is a must starter, Carrot Cake is a must ender.

The pork belly appetizer was truly outstanding and the short rib is the absolute best anywhere. We also enjoyed the burger, the chicken-fried ribeye and the pork shank. The greens were different (in a good way) but they were too salty for some of us. The service could not have been any better. We'll be going back!

The food was awesome. It is melt in your mouth good. Our waiter Anthony was very friendly and took care of all our needs. He made it a night to remember with all of his food recommendations. The drinks were excellent and really worth the price.

Be aware that the main does not come with sides. They do have a quick turnaround time for orders. Big servings... you can share..

The filets were nice and think but light on flavor. The wet aged rib eyes were very tasty but the thickness was lacking for a $50+ steak. I expected a very thick steak for the price but it was still delicious. The sides are amazing. You MUST order thr grilled carrots. Life changing. Dessert was rich and so yummy. The bread pudding was on point! Quaint small place, don't judge the exterior for lack of service. The service was excellent. Casual dress, not your Vic & Anthony's or Perry's type of place but still good eats.

Best pork belly that exists! I would get the short ribs as a main and be prepared to take some home with you as it's a big dish. Yum. Our waiter was Eric and he did all that he could to ensure we were having a great time and enjoying great food.

One of the best if not the best restaurant in town. The service is exceptional, the wait staff is very engaging and friendly. Every dish is amazing, the short ribs, the wet aged rib-eye and the shrimp etouffe with lobster. Appetizers do not disappoint with the pork belly bites and crab cake. Please do not leave till you have topped it off with the incomparable carrot cake. Every dish melts in your mouth.

They seated us in front of the door so it was very cold. When asked if we could be moved we were told no although there were several tables available. The food and waiter were very good, however, the noise level was pretty loud..

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Killen's STQ. It was a very special occasion where we were able to celebrate birthdays for 3 generations (my dad, myself and my son) at the same time. Our waiter was amazing, the food was fabulous and everyone we encountered at the restaurant was very attentive and helpful. Excellent experience

The chicken fried steak was the best I've ever had. The mashed potatoes were excellent and the gravy was especially good. Although the bread pudding was a bit unusual, it was still good.

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Our waiter suggested we do a sharing board for the appetizer as well as entrees. I was a little hesitant to do it for the entrees, but so glad we did. There were six of us. We had did 3 appetizers - crab cake, brisket enchilada and pork belly. We did 4 entrees - ribeye, beef short rib, jagerschnitzel & chicken thighs (not your normal grilled chicken thighs!) We enjoyed family-style sides as well - mac & cheese, brussel sprouts, mushrooms & au gratin potatoes. Everything was scrumptious. We were all able to have enough of each entree to satisfy ourselves and not be overly stuffed. We then enjoyed warm carrot cake, bread pudding and key lime pie! My only negative comment would be the air was blowing right on our table and a few of us were chilled, but that had nothing to do with how great the food was!

Our food was delicious! So much so, that we didn’t stop talking about it until the next morning. Our waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. He helped navigate us through the menu, suggesting appropriate serving sizes for our food and made our wonderful drinks! Everything was tasty and the entire staff was welcoming and friendly. We’ll definitely return for an encore.
