Had a very good meal here, this is definitely a higher end restaurant. Lots of business types at this restaurant so expect to dress up. Unless you are definitely in the mood for steak though, I would recommend the other 'papa' restaurants for the variety of food and price.

The ambiance here is just fine but we have never had an outstanding steak or exemplary service here. The steaks are better than average and the service has always been lacking to adequate. We have been to other steakhouses with finer steaks and better service. We will return here now and then hoping the ball is knocked out of the... More

Overall the experience was superb. My sons consumed the 32oz bone-in sirloin which was cooked perfectly. My small filet was just the right size. The drinks were outstanding, and the service was exemplary. The only drawback was the bacon wrapped scallops. They were WAY over cooked. Preparation of this dish should be seriously reconsidered.

Really good dinning experience overall but the steak itself was a little disappointing. My wife and I split two apps, Deviled Eggs and Turtle Soup. Deviled eggs were outstanding, Turtle soup was good too. We had the 18 oz 35 day aged Rib-eye and both the mushrooms and the crab mac and cheese. Mushrooms were incredible, Mac and cheese was...

They are a chain of restaurants in Houston. Pleasing all they please few. I cannot recommend anything on the menu, as chains are known to have identical recipes. More does not mean better. The service could make them stand out, but it does not deliver there. It is crowded because it is popular because it is known. But that does... More

Just arrived back at hotel after dining at Pappas Bros Steakhouse. Currently on vacation (visiting from Scotland) and so glad we decided to choose this restaurant. The steaks were the best we have ever tasted and the key lime pie was excellent. To top our evening off the service from our waiter 'Steven' was first class. If you are in... More

Chose 18 oz dry aged bone in NY Strip. USDA prime. Steaks are cut in house so I requested extra thick and was accommodated. Perfectly cooked med rare, red warm center. Dry seasoning with peppercorn and salt maybe a tad too much, but easy to scrape off. Great flavor with the hint of dry aged taste. Favorite steakhouse in Houston.... More

My wife and I joined another couple, who are great friends, for dinner at this restaurant last night. We had never been to this restaurant before but the other couple really like this place. We are not meat eaters but went there nevertheless. Glad we did! It is pretty pricey but here, unlike at some other restaurants, you get what... More

We came to this restaurant with local friends, on a day trip from NY. We arrived around 10pm. We were rushed by a Asian looking hostess to our table, for no reason. We were admiring the meat display, and one of the managers was kindly explaining the different choices, but she kept calling us and showed an attitude toward us,... More

This place knows how to prepare a steak and provides great service. A definite must! Every time I come to Houston I at least have dinner there once. I have never been disappointed.
