Solid Dining Establishment

Great atmosphere that couples as a historically-infused, old fashioned steakhouse. Friendly staff, clean restaurant and delicious food; I'm looking forward to returning.

I've passed by this restaurant on my way to the airport for 10 plus years but never had an occasion to be in that part of town to eat. A colleague invited me because it's a good halfway point between The Woodlands and Katy. I was excited to try it and very impressed with the interior when I walked it.... More

It's nice to be welcomed to a dining venue by a nice staff and even the owner. It got even better... The meal was exceptional and cooked as requested... There's no generic approach to cooking. The atmosphere is line a museum which added to the experience. I would highly recommend this location of you like fine dining and the service... More

Excellent food, service and atmosphere, the Steamboat House has it all. A readily accessible location and something a little out of the ordinary, don't hesitate to make a booking for that special occasion.

If the food doesn't take your breath way then the surroundings and history will. Both will amaze!! We have gone for special occasions ( anniversary, birthdays) and for regular dinners and haven't been disappointed yet. I had the 16-oz Texas Cowboy Bone-In Ribeye - fantastic, Companions have had the filet, ribeye, and the special menu for Officer Goforth-- all superb.... More

What a wonderful food experience my fellow WOMAN, Inc. board members and I had today during lunch. It was quiet and private enough to have our meeting plus the food was great right through to dessert.

I had the Prime bone-in Ribeye called The General Houston. I had it prepared medium rare and it was cooked perfectly. This may have been the best steak that I have ever had. The cut of meat was amazing and the preparation was perfectly medium rare. I will be back. Starters were great as was the desserts, but it is... More

This restaurant is located at an interesting spot where is an industrial area. Unless you know this place well, you will not think of exiting a busy Tollway to get a nice steak here. This restaurant is very well lit and not a place for romantic dinner but good for business dinner or parties. Good food!

We have been going here for years and love it. It has become our New Year's Eve tradition. The steaks absolutely melt in your mouth. Charlie Fogherty is great as he walks around dressed as Sam Houston. The whole place is filled with Texas history. Never a disappointment!

For special occasions, The Steamboat House delivers! As it is over 25 miles from home, that's when we visit. The "special" menu of the day provided both my wife & I opportunity to try something new. Both specials were very good & the presentation were superb. Great service topped off the afternoon meal! Nicely done!
