I have Been there maybe 5 times In the last 3 years when I´m in Town, It is the best there is in Steak Country! It works great for all occasions (even tough its expensive), the main dining area is full with sharp dressed people and if you plan to take your kids let them know in advanced because there... More

We've been to Pappas Bros Steakhouse many times, and it never disappoints. From the steaks (as well as lamb chops), the Australian lobster tail, incredible side dishes (lobster deviled eggs!, gratin potatoes, etc), the desserts and, DEFINITELY, the wine list. Top this with a pleasant atmosphere and relaxed but professional service (including the sommeliers), and you have everything you need... More

this place might be a little on the expensive side for many, but compared to other upscale steakhouses, it is very comparable. I have never left this place thinking I paid too much. the steaks are always well-aged and perfectly prepared, the turtle gumbo is very good and crabmeat mac and cheese is decadently rich. good wine list. intelligent staff....

My wife and I went to Pappa's for dinner. If you like steak, I struggle to see how it gets any better than this. The salad was excellent. The steak was perfect. I can't explain how good the lobster mac n cheese is and we finished it with a red velvet brownie with ice cream. It isn't cheap, but it... More

This is simply a top traditional steakhouse, with everything that comes with it. Basically, dark-wood interior in a clubby, traditional atmosphere, formally attired and professionally-trained waiters, impeccable service, the best meat you can get - cooked just right, solid if uninspired sides, etc. Oh, and don't forget to budget $100+/person. The steak is definitely the star, and it is done... More

I haven't been in a couple of years as so expensive and also so many other places to eat in Houston. I don't eat steak that much either. I would recommend trying this restaurant.

This is an amazing steak house with many upscale dishes. Everything is top notch from food to service. This is definitely a place to go for a special occasion as the ticket will be steep.

One of the best meals I have ever had. Great food and even better service. I will be back. the Steak was cooked perfect. The bar was great as well. I had a Filet that was medium rare. A couple of Old Fashions to start the evening off. The service was great and very fast. Always ready to help.

Hands down, the very best steak you will ever put in your mouth. And the sides are excellent. One big drawback, and it is a BIG one, is the noise level in the restaurant is just too much! Asked to be reseated in an outer lying table & it was better, but the noise was still a major distraction. Took... More
