It's a huge toss up as to which is the best steak house in Houston, there are a few contenders and Pappa's is definitely up there with the best. A wide range of steaks and probably the biggest wine list I have seen from $50 and bottle to $40k. I went with my wife and had a great meal, the... More

We came here for a business dinner, beginning of year group goal meeting. Nonetheless, we were waited on by Eric, who was FANTASTIC! He was spot on with the menu, and every honest recommendation he made to us. He was attentive, and he also had help from others and they were all great! Our food was outstandingly delicious and perfection!... More

The best steak in the southern US by far. The cuts are juicy, flavorful, and delicious. Our server (can't remember his name) was witty and attentive and offered wonderful advice on what to order. The food was utterly phenomenal and ambiance upbeat yet classic. Worth the trip out to Houston if you're a steak fanatic.

Pappas Steakhouse downtown has claimed the crown of my favorite steak in Houston, beating out b&b butchers, Vic & Anthony's, iii forks, capitol grille, and all those other steak chains. While the meat, seafood, and sides are amazing, what sets this place off is the service from the moment you enter the place. Knowledgeable wait staff and bartenders cater to... More

I have reviewed this place before and I have to say I did not think it could get any better , but it did. I come to Houston every year around Nov or Dec and always always make a reservation here. They have a new one downtown but I like this one . I have eaten at all of the... More

Went to Pappas Bros a couple of times. This place is so good, the steak is cooked so well and their wine list is amazing. I can't wait to go back to Houston to have another visit

First, I'm a fan of almost all of the Pappas restaurants, but for good reason. They serve lovely food at competitive pricing in a nice environment with a professional staff. To find such a consistent experience is tough anywhere. Pappas steakhouse is the epitomy of "steakhouse" dining. Great food, great service, good selections, and attentive staff. Wonderful, wonderful evening!

Been twice to pappa bros during my visit to houston. im a steak lover and ive been trying to taste all kind of steak.....so far i havent find any better than the dry aged steak from pappa bros. their in-house drying process creates unique combination of juicy, tenderness, and excellent flavor. in my opinion, simply the best !!!

This was a romantic dinner during our visit to Houston. The steaks are perfect. Cooked well and tasted great. They have a group of steaks that are aged for 30-45 days but do not have a lingering funky taste that poorly aged steaks can get. I ordered a special for the evening that was not fabulous (mushy veggies and a... More
