Oh What a Steak!

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... read 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

I have been going to Culpepper's since it first opened and have experienced the many additions, renovations and changes. My hubby and I stopped going to the restaurant routinely several years ago because Rockwall has so many good places to eat. We had not been in 2 or 3 years and were not sure about going again based on the... More

I have been here several times and have loved it - but NOT tonight... The server took some time to get to the table, and she couldn't crack a smile to save her life the entire evening. I was with my partner, his mom and sister, as well as my parents. The six of us ordered drinks, and I requested... More

Culpepper Steakhouse in Rockwall is consistently good. You can depend on them for excellent service, a nice steak cooked to order, and interesting salads and side dishes. My favorite is the house salad with mixed greens, candied pecans, with a honey lemon vinaigrette dressing, followed by the 7-ounce fillet served with rosemary mashed potatoes. They also do a good job... More
