“Absolutely Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Great bar, attentive but not intrusive service, knowledgeable wine staff, and great steak. I'm not really sure what else you could ask for in a restaurant. I was a little disappointed that we had a 7:15 p.m. reservation and didn't get seated until nearly 8 p.m., but they made up for it by offering our table of 8 some appetizers on the house. Definitely give this place a try if you like steak!

“Steak night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Brilliant bar, excellent food, great atmosphere, loved the 'theme' of what I considered to be Gangster 30's style with low lighting and just a great feel to it all. The service was fast and efficient.

“OK, probably has to be my Numero Uno best pick for a steak house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Pappas Bros. Steakhouse may be my all time favorito. Their steaks are a sensation. Their service is also. Everything about that place is so great, yet understated for what it is. They have a cigar room too for those who like that.

“Everything I Wanted in a Steakhouse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Located not far from the Galleria in Houston, Texas is Pappas Steakhouse. Went with a party of four and had one of the best steaks ever. Professional wait staff with excellent service. Several dining rooms and atmosphere led to quiet intimate dining. Everyones steaks came out exactly as ordered and all of us were very pleased. Valet parkling was very quick. Excellent bar and wine list.

“Outta This World Everything!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Just had to try Pappas Brothers because of all the great reviews, so made a beeline for Downtown after touching down @ IAH .. ..

Great layout and perhaps the best seats in the house is the Dining Counter running the length of the open kitchen and facing all the action .. .. I'll be sitting there next time .. ..

After being greeted by Outta This World stunning SALLY, she explained the history of the restaurant and all the off-the-menu items .. ..

Outta This World RIBEYE followed, perfectly-seasoned and heavenly .. .. I can't ever remember a steak where the last bite was as good as the first .. ..

Outta This World CREAMED SPINACH kept the steak company and itself was an addictive substance .. ..

Outta This World PEACH COBBLER followed and our SALLY was nice enough to comp us after we told her we just came in from IAH > THANKS SALLY!!!

Watching the staff prepare each table was almost a show in itself - No detail was too small .. .. Every setting had to be perfect as well as the flowers .. ..

A memorable evening -- THANK YOU PAPPAS BROTHERS!!

.. .. and, did I mention they were Outta This World?? ;)))))))))))))))))
