Truly an amazing lunch experience. The restaurant is more than just a restaurant, its a Houston History Museum..!! The food was excellent, seabass, shrimp cocktail and crab cakes, all very good, and so was the service. I note that others have have various experiences, but I can truly say that we had a first class meal in a first class... More

Was a first time visit to the Steamboat house as part of a work dinner. Setting is really cool - history of the place is a highlight from all the paintings and memorabilia - really cool. Service was very good - our waiter took good care if us. Hate to say it but the food, at least mine, was not... More

This place is consistently inconsistent. One time you go, the food and service is great, the next time food is still good, service is marginal, next time the service horrific. First experience: Had lunch with 15 coworkers during prime Holiday season in December. ..Awesome experience! Ordered from the dinner menu, appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts all arrived as they should... More

We came to Houston for a trade show and discovered this amazing place. The food was exceptional and the service was excellent. Try the crab cakes - you won't be disappointed. This one is definitely on my list of repeat visits.

I selected this place for a business lunch. I wasn't too concerned about prices going in based on the menu I had seen earlier so my colleague and I ordered the lunch special. It was described by the waitress without a price and I admit I should have asked. Then she said it came with a side salad and offered... More

Being from Houston, we have always driven by the huge statue on the side of Beltway 8. On the way home from the airport we decided to try it out. Awesome steaks, awesome shrimp. Looks like a museum on the inside with a lot of neat history memorabilia. The owner even came out and visited tables. Very nice.

Very elegant historical setting. Lots of antique pieces from days gone by, it almost qualifies as a museum. Great Menu, great food, I hope your hungry because the servings are huge. Very classy place for very hard to please clients. This is like travelling first class, bring your Platinum card with you, as you know what travelling first class means.... More

Yes, an expense account, please, for the fantabulous dinner you want to order and indulge in. The drinks were nicely, surprisingly strong! Steak is king here, and waitstaff seemed genuinely knowledgeable and helpful in explaining various cuts of meat. Do take the time to appreciate all the Texas historical artifacts and paintings. Its location - oddly alone, with its ample... More

Not realizing just how busy they get during the lunch hour, a friend and I met here at noon. It was a 30 minute wait for the dining room so we went to the bar area and were seated right away. Food is good and came out quickly. We both had the chicken tender salad...I would order this again. Price... More

Realizing that this is more or less a steakhouse, my title is a bit tongue and cheek, but not really. I went there this week for a business lunch and ordered the "Lunch Steak" which on the menu was a sirloin. When I ordered it, the waiter said that they now have a ribeye not a sirloin, which was fine.... More
