Between the decor and the prices I had high expectations. All I received was disappointment. I ordered my steak medium and received a dry, tasteless piece of meat. The service was like molasses. My husband couldn't even get his tea refilled. I will not be returning.

We had not been to Steamboat House in a few years, and the experience was every bit as wonderful as we had remembered. Everything we ate was fantastic; the steaks cooked to perfection. The interesting Texas history surrounding us only added to our unique dining experience. We can't recommend this restaurant enough for a special dinner out.

Went here on a Saturday night. It has been some time since we have been back. The food was good but the service was extremely slow. Not just to order but to even get drink refills. I know the restaurant was busy but no excuse for such slow service.

My wife and I ate here for Valentine's Day, prior to enjoying Cirque du Soleil's Amaluna just a short distance away at Sam Houston Race Park. Given that this was Valentine's Day, I decided to make reservations for 6 pm, to allow for a relaxed dinner before going to Cirque. We arrived shortly before 6 and were warmly greeting by... More

Very pleasing museum-quality decor. I love the Texas history this venue is upholding. Our waiter was knowledgeable and responsive – he inquired if we were there prior to the cirque show and timed our meal perfectly. Menu for Valentines’ Day was filled with delicious adjectives. However, the entrée presented fell just short of expectations. We found only tiny bits of... More

Took my colleagues to lunch. As a native Texan the atmosphere is amazing, warm and historical. The service was excellent better than expected in a high end restaurant. We ate ordered off the lunch menu. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Will definitely go back.

From the moment my fiancé and I walked in till we walked out the door they went above and beyond in every facet of excellence in dining. We were greeted by the owner who not only welcomed us but took the time to tell us about Texas history and made us feel like family. His actions set the tone for... More

I like the Steamboat House restaurant. The lobby and throughout the restaurant you can find all kinds of interesting Texas memorabilia and the lunch menu is very complete. While eating there I've always had the impression I'm dining with the movers and shakers in Houston's oil & gas industry. It's that kind of place. Unfortunately, I'm not a huge fan... More
