Great choice for steaks for visitors near airport

Short drive from airport (IAH) hotels - really your only steak choice on north side. Better steaks can be had in Galleria area, but convenience rules here. Bonus is the considerable amount of Texas memorabilia and an education in Texas history for Texans & non-Texans alike. Good service. Good room... read more

The front desk seating folks were extremely busy and didn't appear very friendly - the attitude of our server was great - he asked to box up my food and I asked him to be sure the many bones in my fish were not put into the box - he said ok - since I was with a client I... More

A really love this place. The Fried Green Tomatoes, RibEye Steaks, Mashed Potatoes and the Key Lime Pie and Cannonballs are the bomb. The staff and food were excellent.

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

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

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.
