Food was great and service was excellent. The only complaint was getting seated next to the bar which was pretty loud.

This is still one of the best restaurants on the island, but Covid has created one problem. They have added dining seats in the bar area to allow for more tables. Unfortunately the noise, loud music, and "exuberance" from the bar destroy the ambiance. A simple solution would be to hang a thick curtain around the bar (it's circular) to shield off the noise but so far no one has thought of this. So if you're looking for a nice quiet or romantic dinner, be sure and request seating inside the restaurant.

The San Luis never disappoints and The Steakhouse is no exception. This was my first time eating here and I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the dining experience from the host who was incredibly kind, welcoming, and helpful to the waiter who was very thorough explaining the menu and all options. Then you get to the steaks which were cooked to perfection and wine list offering just about anything you could possibly have a taste for. We will definitely be back and can’t wait to do so!

This has always been our go to steak house. Unfortunately this time was the absolute worst experience we’ve ever had maybe anywhere ever. It was packed and loud. The steak we sent back 3 times. First came out not cook enough for us. They then took it back and put it under the broiler and brought it back. It was ruined. Sent that back and they cooked a new steak. Meanwhile everything else we ordered came out with the first steak to just sit and get cold.
Then the new steak was so cooked it was almost like they were annoyed and did it on purpose.
It was a very bad experience and unfortunate because that’s our go to steakhouse.
It seems as if the place in a whole is just going downhill bad.

Thank you Ricardo for your attentive and outstanding service. From start to finish service was over the top good. We took a lot of time at a very busy place and we appreciate being able to sit back and enjoy. The food is phenomenal. Nothing better than a Chef who can prepare outstanding fare and especially during these challenging times. Now that we are secondary residents of Galveston, The Steakhouse will be our number one spot!

Yum!!! Best steak in a long while, steak/seafood skewer was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. Shrimp in the appetizers were also the biggest shrimp I’ve ever seen. Cheesecake was AMAZING

Great in all respects. On a weekend getaway I wanted a great meal and got it! Love the strip steak and always must have the lobster mac&cheese! No room for desert, the portions were large and I had enough for lunch the next day. Jimmy did a great job as my waiter. Good to see Daniel’s back. Special thanks to Joe and John Pal for making every visit special!

The food was wonderful. The bad part was because the appetizers were so good, we basically took our main meal to go (great lunch the following day!)

I would suggest being very hungry before you arrive.

At 9:00pm, a piano entertainer started singing. We were quite pleased with his talents, actually stayed an additional hour to listen to him.

Celebrated 38th Wedding Anniversary at The Steakhouse. The property is not big and that allows the staff to pay close attention to the dinner guests. The food was excellent; great steaks - he best on Galveston Island! Warm, attentive staff and wonderful food; this one is a new favorite for us!

I have to say for the price it was subpar. My wife and I both ordered salads to start and both were almost inedibly overdressed. I'm so sensitive and appreciative of them even being open, I didnt want to complain. We shared the surf and turf, sirloin and lobster. Some bites of the lobster were delicious, soft and tender, but too much of it was the stringy connective tissue. The steak was cooked beautifully but had very little flavor. They brought bearnaise sauce for brussel sprouts, (which will be discussed shortly,) which had the texture of mayonaise and almost no flavor-- not a sauce, more like a glob The brussel sprouts were chewy and also relatively tasteless. The star of the evening was the butter cake, and it was simply to die for. It's our second, underwhelming visit to the steakhouse, so on future visits we will enjoy the other delicious venues on the island. In spite of a very underwhelming visit, I'm grateful for the efforts to get back in gear.
