This rustic restaurant sits on the service road and requires some good navigation to locate and get into the back parking lot. Valet parking is offered and you have a nice little covered, winding walk among nice landscaping, river rocks and streams before you enter the front door. Decor is pure Texas! The restaurant is dark wood, cow hides, animal... More

We visited Culpeppers the first of September and had the best waiter, the best drinks (it was happy hour) the best prices. I do not ever remember having a wedge salad that was so good, more than just a wedge, it was like half of a head of lettuce with a generous portion of dressing, bacon bits and whatever else... More

Was leary of eating here as it's very hard to figure out how to get into. Totally fenced off with very few windows! I'm not a big fan of very dark restaurants, however the food was delicious! Don't think we would return as there are so many fabulous steak houses in the DFW area that are much lighter and brighter... More

I went for the entertainment, but loved the food, too. Found out that an old acquaintance would be playing at Clupepper's and rounded up a group to go. At first I was disappointed that they wouldn't reserve a table for me, but we got there early and nabbed the front tables. This is a very much a theme restaurant. Very... More

We had a bit of a wait. There was a very strong smoky smell inside the restaurant from the grilling. It was noticeable. Usually that does not bother me...but it did a little bit that day. Might have been just that day? Not sure??? The menu was very limited. We had about a twenty minute wait. It was an ok... More

I started coming here in my early twenty's and it's never a disappointment. The steaks are amazing and the customer service is excellent. The outdoor patio is a great place to have a drink while listening to wonderful music and visiting with friends. Always a good time here!

very overpriced and not the best quality of food. We paid a lot for very little. some things were tasty but 70 dollars for 4 bites of lobster tail was a real killer. And the steaks were very underdone.

I have been visiting Culpepper's since it was a little BBQ joint in the early 80's. I have seen it evolve a lot over the years from a raucous BBQ joint with lot's of loud live music to the more refined "Texas white tablecloth" place it is today. During all that time they have always have great steaks on par... More

A pretty old place with once good atmosphere but had a smell of too many meals past. Facility could be cleaner. The food was over cooked, I had the ribs and tasted like they had been prepared days before. Salad was nothing special however the bread was fresh and good. Table service was OK but not top rate. The most... More
