I have been a few times and the last time I was so disappointed. Yes, the salad bar is amazing but who want to fill up on salad when the main attraction is steak. There are good steaks all over in Texas. This upscale restaurant...is just looking dated and casual. For the price I would prefer Perry’s or Ruth Chris.More

Super dinner on special cancer free celebration! Masks are required but everyone is aware of COVID. Three of the four dimes on beef medallions and the perfectly delicious. The other guest enjoyed the chicken medallions. The salad bar is outstanding also: sneeze shield is in...place and the staff serves the plate with whatever delicacy one cares to add. The wait staff is extremely professional.More

This is old school Houston at its finest. Be prepared to do drop some coin on this delicious H Town favorite. We each had the salad bar, shared a 16 oz NY strip and scalloped potatoes and a red wine flight. Excellent service, great ambiance...$150 for two.More

My husband had never been here & I had, ten years previous. We made early dinner reservations the day after they re-opened due to Covid. The statue out front was wearing a Goliad “Come and Take It” mask with the canon on it, as were...many employees. You may purchase one for $11.00. There’s plenty of parking & a hostess checks your reservation (which was verified by phone call & text) & promptly seats you. As you walk past the massive fireplace you’ll see very nice western decor throughout the place, even in the bathrooms. Because of “ social distancing” they had really huge cut outs of various Texas heroes placed at tables. It added a fun & festive feel. Our waitress took our drink order and brought those out. The tea was very good. No sweet tea option but plenty of sweetener options. We took a trip to the salad bar and employees plated it to our needs & through our guidance via plexi glass. The cilantro dressing is excellent, as is the bread (several options, we had the mini loaves of white bread) . The salad bar is excellent and features several lettuce options, dressing and fruit options as well as different sub salad items. My husband ordered the 10 oz filet medium, while I opted for prime rib medium. Both were cooked to perfection & the baked potatoes were evenly oven baked, not newked. They come with all garnishing options, however, we requested they be on the side & they obliged. Because we were celebrating the waitress gave us options for dessert choice & we ejected to have the creme brûlée with berries (strawberries, raspberries & blackberries) on top. The waitress lit the sparkler on top & took out picture which they printed as a keepsake. We were there right at two hours , but it flew by. Restrooms were nice and clean and had thick thirsty paper towels to dry your hands with. Great from start to finish!More

Great food - well prepared quality steak. Good salad bar - very difficult not to over feed yourself. Really fun environment with lots of interesting collectables scattered around the place. We visit Texas a few times a year and always put visiting Taste of Texas...on our must do list.More

I had a filet and was cooked perfectly and was very delicious. They have a large salad bar, but I would prefer having an option to have a side salad delivers to me. The restaurant is very large and very loud. The wait staff is...very good.More

The best steak house in Texas! It literally melts in your mouth... best Wagyu beef, prepared in such a way, heavenly taste.. even in a salad dish, they serve it in a crusted cheese bowl, so ended up eating up the “bowl”! I have no...room left in my tummy for any desert.. If you as a first time visitor, come earlier before lunch time or dinner time, to avoid the wait, the restaurant does not take reservation at all..More

You will see nice jeans being worn, but they do have a dress code. Basically, business casual and up to more formal from there.
