Long time go to place in Rockwall

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... read more

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.

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.

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

A gentle stream serenaded my party as we walked from the parking area to the entrance. We were seated immediately at 6:30 on Monday evening. The atmosphere is English hunt club, with trophy heads on dark dimly lit walls. We were celebrating my granddaughters 6th birthday. So they sat us in the bar area away from other occupied tables. I... More

Where old Rockwall hangs out. Everything is mediocre. They just haven't reinvested back into the business. The building is dark and atmosphere darker. I'd hate to see the place in the day light.

We went recently with a party of 10 (4 small kids). I must say I was beyond impressed with the service. Our drinks were never dry, the bread always warm, and the food brought promptly. My favorite dish here is the petite filet and chicken fried lobster combo. CHICKEN FRIED LOBSTER. The soups and appetizers are unique as well. My... More
