Best Steak i've ever had

The chateaubriand was the best steak I have ever had in my life. We also got a seafood platter for an appetizer, which was fantastic. One of the best restaurants I have ever been to.

My wife and I along with our friends dined at Nick and Sam's for the first time the other day. It was delightful. Service was great, Food was delicious. Atmosphere was fun. This is not an inexpensive discount place, but it is what you pay for. The wine selection was above average and servers knew their stuff.

Cool crowd, amazing drinks and food. The only thing was that our reservation was for 9:30 and we didn't get seated till close to 10:45. They gave us free champagne instead.

I ate at Nick and Sam's last night with friends and overall it was a nice meal. The steak was very good but I was underwhelmed by the sides. We ordered half orders of all the sides and even the half orders were massive. The portions were just grotesque. Really just over the top and unnecessary. When the food arrived... More

I had dinner with a group of friends there this past Friday and every single part of our meal was delicious! The wait staff is top-notch and will cater to your every need. I ordered the surf and turf; the steak was cooked to perfection and lobster tail was amazing as well. I actually shared the plate with a friend... More

Went in with a large group on a weeknight - the place was hopping. It's a fancy place but you can dress business casual and not feel uncomfortable. Hey, you're in Texas after all. Excellent service by Ivan (get in his section if you can - he and his team know how to treat their guests. Yes, he has a... More

This is a Mortons on steroids but it was seriously superior. The menu was varied, the options were interesting, the wine list was strong. The food was fantastic. Lots of steak cooked on the bones for better flavor. The chef will debone or not--your choice. Expensive but totally worth it.

This steak house is a cut above most of the others. The steaks are prepared perfectly. The sides are large and the service is what you would expect form a steak house with a piano player in the middle of the serving area for the waiters. I would say the only drawback is the wine prices far exceed most other... More
