Steak small and tasteless.
No bread plates due to a party of 12 and cooks are also the dishwashers according to our server.
Rushed! In and out in one hour.
Not what we expected.
Extremely overpriced for what we received.
Bread served on a plastic plate.
Server held fingers over cup rather than serving coffee by the handle.
No saucers.
Dress code not adhered to....

Great food and wait staff but not enough of them. A large party was upstairs and management did not see fit to staff up enough wait staff to accommodate both the party and down stairs dining making for large wait times for wine replenishment, plates, appetizers,etc. I blame the management, not the employees as they were running at times to take care of the patrons. This was a Saturday evening too.

The food was fantastic! Get the blue cheese butter with your steak, it’s amazing!! Sides are all sized to share with 2-4 people so sample a few sides and everyone will have plenty! They have half priced bottles of wine with dinner on Wednesday’s! The best part is it’s close to home.

Kemah Steakhouse isn't on the boardwalk buts its nearby and it's definitely a place that we'll go back to again and again. Unlike the restaurants /kitchens along the Boardwalk, the chef and other staff are all about winning people back by offering a comfortable venue, personalized service and knock-your-socks-off food. We met for a management dinner midweek. ( Another executive chef suggested it. ) There were a few couples and another table of 3 nearby. The menu isn't extensive but there's something for everyone, I'd say. Why offer 100 decent options when you can offer 30 fabulous ones, right? A couple of us had the filet mignon, reasonably priced at $39 and perfectly seasoned/cooked. The sides were all big enough to share and the wine and cocktails were crisp and well made. I don't work for this place and it was my first trip but I'll be back for dinner with my girlfriends, date night with my husband and business meetings with my customers. I thank my friend from Centercourt Pizza for suggesting it and thank the chef, AJ, for serving us such great meals.

Brought the wrong food two times, waitress wasn't sure what's on the menu, had to clean my table, flat coke w/ Crown, brought hot water out to drink instead of ice water. The food was good, but the service was really bad. For a very special night for the wife and I we will definitely not go back.

Service was terrible, we were the only people there and still had to ask waiter 4 times to get butter for the bread. Steaks were tough. Not one order, of 4 people, was right.

They had a very limited menu for valentines. There were three things l wished to try, bacon wrapped quail, baby blue wedge salad and lollipop lamb chops with asparagus. None were on the menu and you couldn’t order from the regular menu. I found that disappointing.

Valentine’s Day they had a special smaller menu. First off. It was a warm day and they were busy so with no air on it it was 80+ degrees. They advertise as a premium steakhouse, they do serve Allen bros steaks from Chicago where were from so I felt the value will be there. My wife had a filet that was absent of any flavor at all. I ordered a bone in 14oz ribeye medium or hot pink. A ribeye with good fat content is the most flavorful of cuts. However when you cut it 1/4” thin then grill it it’s impossible to get it hot pink. There was no fat so no flavor and was barely able to be cut. The 2 waiters I mentioned this to both said there were complaints so I asked for the manager. He came out belligerent and refusing to acknowledge that it was well done even saying “what do you want for 14oz” and it was $49. Then he just walked away. I refused to pay for it. Tipped the waiter fully. I entertain clients often and this place is close but I’d never take anyone there again and I will not let my sales staff take clients ever. Not even a 1 star

Overall I had a pleasant experience and will likely return but it won’t leave you anxtiously awaiting your next visit. The main course (filet prepared medium) was absolutely the best tasting in memory and very well prepared. Delicious. The sides are served family style and frankly nothing special; seemed like something you’d make at home with the same outcome. I just expect a bit more flavor profile than that in a nice steak restaurant. Service was not the best but it was Valentines Day so recognize that it was hectic at times. Though our server was pleasant and was clearly working hard. You could tell because he was sweating a lot. Was seated upstairs. Not as nice an ambience as downstairs but then again, the downstairs was noticeably warmer and a bit smokey for me, the better option. Really appreciated the fact that it’s not crammed in with all the other restaurants and the fact that this place is a house. Though, the owners could probably invest in the interior finishings a bit to elevate the atmosphere/dining experience and this place would be hard to beat on many levels.

Very disappointing. Nice facility. Terrible service. Had difficulty from the beginning as we were not seated or even acknowledged for 10 minutes. My wife's steak was not prepared properly. Service was poor all night. After waiting to have our table cleaned i elected to do it myself. Bill was nearly $100 per person, food and service awful. Will never return.

Although i made the effort to call the restaurant to inform them that 2 of the 4 persons that had dinner got really sick from the food (probably the bisque), i never got a call back nor an apologize. This is very regretful for a restaurant that pretends to be an upscale restaurant. Not to be advised. This is unacceptable. Never again and lost two large industrialss

Looking for a non-Tilman restaurant to celebrate birthday. Wasn't familiar w/ restaurant at all. So glad we checked it out because this place was a hidden gem in Kemah. Steaks were great, ambience was great. We will definitely go back!

Liked the ambiance, easy location. Waiter helped to make the evening. Although we were there on an off night being Sunday, but I would expect a little more traffic than the only guest at 6:30 pm. By 7:30 there were 2 other couples. The medium steak came out rare/medium rare, but I think that was due to the lack of traffic.

We have been to Kemah Steak House several times and the food and drinks have been very good. Our service this night was good but it has been slow a few times before. Monday night might not be a good night to go as it was a little too quiet. Needed some lightening up.

Hands down one our favorite ‘date night’ get away places! Food is always AMAZING and service is A+! A bit on the pricier side, but worth every single penny!
Highly recommend the crab cakes as a starter with banana foster bread pudding to finish up the meal! Everything in between appetizer and dessert is great!!! Can’t decide on which steak is the best....still an ongoing debate! Guess we’ll need to do more tastings! 😉
Also, MAGIC BUTTER!!!

I really want to like this restaurant. It is close by and the people are very nice. Unfortunately, I have had issues here more than once. The latest occasion was very disappointing; the three of us ordered 2 bone-in dry aged ribeyes and a filet. The ribeyes were stringy and full of gristle. The filet was incorrectly prepared twice and not delivered until we were almost finished with ours and it was dried out to boot. This place likes to put itself out there with Killen’s, Perry’s or Vic & Anthony’s, but the only way they compare is the cost. They are not even close in any other way. $250 for this meal was a total waste.
