“Used to be excellent; Not so now!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

We've been to the Texas Steakhouse since it opened and always loved the fresh, crisp salads with hot bacon dressing, tasty coconut shrimp, and the 22-oz porterhouse steak; shared, it made a fantastic surf and turf! Fast forward to now and only the salad remains--and not too great at that. Last two times in six months have been progressively downhill so may not go back. Shrimp dinner two nights ago was popcorn shrimp; totally unacceptable for a decent steak place. Salad was not as usual but can't tell what made it that way; maybe dressing ill proportioned. As previously mentioned by other diners, bucket of peanuts gone and decor stark, dark, and drab commercial theme, something about cowgirls but really box-store junk. Waitress completely scattered and salads came with the dinner. Don't apologize; manage better! Refilled sweet T with unsweetened T and had to wait a while for sugar. All in all, not a good experience. Maybe the Longhorn and Outback competition is killing them but I think they could make a comeback if they want to. Good luck on that! Bring back the old menu and brighten the place up!

“OK but not great.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Have eaten at many Texas Steakhouses and this was not one of their finest. Service was slow and the temperature of the bloomin' onion was tepid.

“Small Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

Good Menu to choose from and drinks were good. Dark and gloomy. Staff were friendly. Slow getting a table. Waited at bar and it was dirty, had to request to have it cleaned.

“Reliable if limited menu.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Wait staff are always friendly and the food is predictable but pretty good (so long as you like steak and potatoes with only a limited selection of vegetables).

“First time here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Steak was excellent and server polite, speedy and personable. The sides were good, and not smothered in fatty calories.
