As always, the place is beautiful, the service was great and when the servers tell you about the carrot cake, believe the hype. I don’t even like carrot cake, it was spectacular.

Steak was mediocre for the price, no wedge or Caesar salad on menu, unimaginative sides

This restaurant is very nearby our home. It was our first visit. The staff was friendly and accommodating. However the server admitted that she ordered two of the same steaks instead of the original order of two separate types of steaks. When she recognize that she asked if we would want the steak anyway and it would be out shortly. We said sure. By the time the state came out we were done with the other food. All the portions were great everything tasted amazing even the carrot cake.

Food was pretty good but the service was very disappointing. Our waiter didn’t seem to be in any hurry to help us and I had to hunt him down a couple of times to get a refill on my drink. Food took awhile to come out and our waiter just wasn’t engaging or friendly. I even put it was my friends birthday and absolutely nothing was done. The only saving grace was the short rib sandwich, which was heavenly.

Good food but for all the hype about how great it was I would say it just fine not outstanding. Presentation was lovely. Excellent service. Surprisingly interesting wine list. Hot in the restaurant. Was there even any air conditioning?

Killen's STQ is over rated . Three days ago I had dinner with my friend . I shared an appetizer and a 14 oz. ribeye steak, mash potatoes , a bottle of wine, and a dessert. The bill totaled $ 211.00 The steak was tough, and the appetizer was poor. When I complained to the manager he accused me of trying to get a free meal and yelled at me

Yes, our table was not ready on my booking time. But, patience is a virtue. Our waitress, Mia was an amazing and professional personnel during our time of dinner. She was attentive and well rounded informative with all our food decisions. Thank you, again.

Great steaks of course. The sides were also excellent as was dessert. We had the Wagyu Ribeye and split it between the two of us. That was enough for the two of us plus a couple of sides. The wine list is excellent with a lot of Napa cabs from small producers. This is a steak house we would return to.

Being a native of Houston, I know there too many food options for a Saturday night dinner. Lucky I choice STQ! This restaurant is everything you want for steak night. The restaurant is small with less than 20 tables (inside), a perfect change from the oversized restaurants all over town. Our service was amazing, Brent was our waiter (yes, I remember his name) he, was very attentive and excellent with suggestions. Now on to our food, we started with the Pecan smocked pork belly it was the perfect started for the night. It was perfectly flavored to the point that we contemplated licking the sauce off the plate. Then we moved on to our entrée, one center cut filet, one post oak beef short rib, one chicken fried ribeye, and gouda mac & cheese. Once our food arrived at the table our conversation ended, we no longer spoke until there was no trace of food on our plates. The beef short rib fell off the bone, with a perfectly cooked gouda mac& cheese (mac & cheese is must when judging a steak house). The chicken fried ribeye was exactly what you want when you think of chicken fired, it tasted like, home. I have not been so satisfied with a restaurant in the last couple of years, I will definitely be returning!

Anthony was our waiter....he was fantastic. Spent time to explain the menu selections and made good recommendations. The restaurant is nice and not loud. Easy to carry on a conversation in a relaxing environment. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!! Great job!!

While a little more expensive than other steakhouses, the beef is excellent and the side dishes are well prepared. I had hoped for a few more tempranillo and malbec wine options but we found a good one. The restaurant's aesthetic is pretty basic, not like an old line steakhouse. Service could not have been better.

We went for lunch and enjoyed the $29 three course lunch. There were ample selections in each catagory. I had the chicken fried ribeye and it was delicious. For dessert, I chose bread pudding...a favorite of mine...and it was really good.
We will surly go again, and recommend it to all our friends.
We would have gone sooner, but I thought they were only open for dinner. Now, they also serve lunch, which is my preferred eating out time....

The pork belly and corn are must haves. I rarely call any dish transcendental. They're that damn good. I forgot to take pics. It was that incredibly excellent. A grand slam.
