Fine dining, unique setting.

This restaurant is unique for it's wealth of Texas history. It genuinely has museum quality articles, information, and treasures to see. The food is outstanding, though very pricey. The staff is very warm and welcoming.

If you need a place to bring an out of town visitor or just because you like great food, this is the place. Non native Texans will be impressed that they are eating in a museum like setting and Texans will beam with pride. The steak was perfect and I think my husband almost cried when he ate his Bison....

I have been to the Steamboat House several times and think it is a very unique place and love the Texas history. Service has always been top notch and even though the food has been really good I never quite thought it was worth the price. This last visit I took clients to dinner and and ordered one of the...

Plan to spend some time just taking in all the memorabilia. It's not just about the great steaks, which are mouth watering by the way, it's about the history of Texas and the local flare. Our server, Elizabeth, was wonderful. On time in the right spot hot and tasty food and drinks all evening. Most importantly, our water glasses never... More

My son was studying Texas history this last year in school. This is what sparked the visit. The restaurant is full of Texas history items. We had a crab cake appetizer. It was delicious. I had the petite steak butterflied. It was the best steak I have had in a long time and we frequent various steak houses. It melted... More

Sam Houston Steamboat House is a great restaurant. Food is fresh, staff is nice. Best crab cakes I have ever had in the U.S.! The only comment I have is the speed.... You have to eat so quickly. I guess it is because I am European, used to spend hours in a restaurant. But honestly: don't leave Houston without crab... More

Entering the restaurant you are surprised to see a giant portrait of .... George Washington! Surprising since this restaurant is modeled after the last home of another great leader, Sam Houston. But there is a history of why Washington has the place of honor and how that portrait, and the one of Sam Houston came to be one of the... More

Enjoyed a nice business dinner at this wonderful steakhouse. We each had the prime rib and it was great. The servers were very attentive and quick to refill drinks. The atmosphere is very historic and the room we were in contained a multitude of historical painting including a 15 foot portrait of Sam Houston. Lots of rooms at this place... More
