Tender steak!

Our waitress was not necessarily a happy person that day (very business like) but she served us adequately and the food was VERY GOOD. It wasn't a busy evening but people came in more like the 7:30- 8 range, so maybe that's part of the culture in K or par for Tuesday night? Regardless the steaks... read more

We went to the Cowboy Steak House for our 23rd Wedding Anniversary while we were staying in Rocksprings. We are from Houston and have been to many steak houses. Cowboy Steak House blows any place we have been away! Our steak was so tender and flavorful. cooked to perfection. It did not require any added sauce or spice to it.... More

My first ever visit to Kerrville and my first meal in town. What a way to start! The Cowboy Steak House has great character and a great choice on the menu. I didn't sample any of the vast wines on offer. Sadly I was driving. I chose the Wrangler Top Sirloin. It was faultless. Cooked just right and tasted divine.... More

I read the reviews after visiting Cowboy Steak House this week. And I have a couple of comments after watching our large party of 10. We called to make reservations and the tables were setup upon our arrival. EXCELLENT. The facts: Family owned and operated since 1977. Impressive wine list. Good steaks. As first time dinners one of the family... More

I have been traveling to Kerrville for years and always look forward to my dinner here. Service was horrible and steak was okay. I was given the wrong check. The order was wrong. And we waited 45 minutes when the restaurant wasn't even busy

They are so proud to have so many wine varieties, but that is where the pride should stop. My wife and I arrived early and we thought we would go have a drink in the bar, after reading some of the drink specials on the board, but walking through that door and getting slapped in the face with all of...

We ate here because we heard the steaks were very good. I did not care for the mesquite flavor on the steak. My steak was over cooked and my husbands was over cooked and we both ordered med rare. The salad was strange as it just came out with lettuce. No cheese or carrots. There were fake bacon bits on... More

The Cowboy Steak house is family owned and managed. The owners will be there to visit with you unless they are off in Napa buying wine for their fantastic, award winning wine list. The service has never in 20 years been lacking - the waitresses are smiling, happy to help, and keenly aware of matching a wine to whatever entree... More

First let me start by saying that the personnel are very friendly and the service is truly excellent. The house Merlot was better than the wine I tasted at one of the wineries in Fredricksburg. The salad was fresh, and I highly recommend the roasted garlic vinegarette. I had the chicken fried steak. It was not any more impressive than... More
