Much Texas history to be seen here and great atmosphere. Great food choices and some of the best steaks in Texas!

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

We met some friends and family for dinner and drinks on a Saturday evening. Reservations were for 7:30, and we arrived early. The hostess at the bar was very helpful. Everyone arrived right on time, and we were seated a little earlier than I expected. The service was excellent. The food was wonderful, and portions were great! I had the... More

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

Steeped in Texas History, Wonderful architecture, recreating the old Southern Plantation home look. The menu is delightful, with an astonishing selections of tasty entrees and sides.
