Great Place. Great ambiance. Great waiter. Only issue was a big group had come in before us and the kitchen got backed up, so we had to wait about 40 minutes for our meal.

I was disappointed in the steak. For the price, it was cooked rare, but the meat itself was tough. It was like they used a poor cut and the fat was hard/chewy. It just seemed expensive and the food wasn't any better than we could have gotten at a chain steak house. The drinks were excellent! Our waitress wasn't real enthusiastic though. She was polite enough, but just didn't give us the "warm fuzzies" I would have expected at paying those prices. I know this is a picky review, but I expected more out of this place. I heard their brunch is better than the dinner though!

The menu was terribly limited. I got the love beef hamburger my wife got a salad. Neither of us could manage more than a few bites of our food. My burger was drenched In a terrible mushroom mayo and her salad had a sour dressing. We paid 80 bucks for this lovely food.

We arrived early for our reservation to have a drink at the bar. Hostess was very kind and seated us early. Service was good! I ordered the seared sea scallops and my plate of food was warm at best. The scallops weren't seared really and they were very rubbery. My husband had the stuffed quail and was happy with his meal. Said it could have been hotter(temperature). I would come back there for drinks and appetizers but not for dinner.

There was a bit of confusion with regard to the server assigned to the table. Business partner and I waited 20 minutes while servers did not attend to the table.

Food was just ok. Which is very surprising because this is usually a favorite. Just an off night.

Off your game this visit. The cod was not good and all of the dishes including the flank steak was served warm. Our server seemed very occupied for a very slow Tuesday evening. I didn't get his name but his previous work history included the Marble Slab Ice Cream Parlor. Our server took our orders then looked at us and said with all sincerity, "I'm sorry, I have no idea what any of you ordered?". If it has been a joke, I would've rated the service TOP NOTCH! Will go back because I know y'all are capable of better.

I actually ate here twice in one day. First for brunch with a friend and it was amazing. The grits, green chili pork and eggs was delicious. That evening I went back for dinner. The small plates are great for sharing. The meatballs were our favorite. We thought the pierogis and quail poppers were a let down. My only recommendation would be a few lighter sharing plates as the food is heavy and rich. I would've also liked a few lighter vegetable sides to mix in. We tried the Brussels sprouts which were good but also heavy due to the Spanish chorizo.

Service was exceptional. Shawanna was friendly, funny, prompt and knowledgeable. The food was delicious. Highlights were the grilled quail poppers wrapped in bacon and the melt in your mouth pork belly starters. The chef, Jarrod even came over once to see how everything was. Made our night that much more special. Will definitely be back.

This is the first negative experience that I have had at Boiler House. We were there to celebrate a birthday. Seated at a table that was not balanced so it rocked back and forth thru out our meal. Ordered an appetizer, the waitress left without taking drink orders. We had to ask another waiter for silverware and napkins after we had received our appetizer. That afternoon I received an email from Open Table that we had not kept our reservation and the consequences of that! That was the last straw! The food was delicious. It is a shame really! There was no acknowledgement of the birthday until the end (our 4th wait person noticed the presents and wished my friend a Happy Birthday.

 (Dallas)·Dined on November 3, 2017

We loved the location, ambiance, and service that was provided at our dinner last night. The popcorn and burrata appetizers were quite tasty. We ordered the diver scallops, pork shank, cod and lobster Mac and cheese. With the exception of the Mac and cheese, our meals were cold, slightly warm at best. The potato purée served with the pork shank and diver scallops were cold which was off putting to say the least. The pork shank was cold in the center. The scallops had a beautiful sear but were barely warm and undercooked. We didn’t complain to our server and just ate our meal. After reading some of the reviews, the meal temperature issue is not new to the restaurant. Despite the temperature of the food, the flavors were there and our service was great. We are from out of town and would consider returning if they can make some minor fixes.

Boiler House is a bit of this and a bit of that, all prepared excellently. In some ways, it tries to be all things to many people--steak house, inventive Texas ranch cuisine, small bites and spreads. As a result, it appeals to many tastes, but not those looking for a specialty. We had two tastes, and two mains, all pretty much different than anything we've ever had. Try the Pierogi and the seviche, as recommended by our server, Zander, who was very candid about his recommendations. For mains we had excellent roasted cod and a oxtail gnocchi, both very tasty. The Pearl Brewery location adds to the Boiler House appeal and the house margarita was so excellent, we both had two! Definitely worth a try and good value overall.
