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

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

Awesome selection of wines. The little bartender -which I wish I could remember her nane- was knowledgeable, helpful and entertaining. Recommended for great food and drinks

My husband and I eat here anytime we are in the area. It's worth a drive -- even from Fredricksburg, where there really isn't a comfortable steak restaurant. The wait staff is very friendly and the portions are huge. Save room for dessert -- I had the strawberry shortcake using local -- and RIPE -- strawberries!
