Very impressive historical decor. Elegant dining experience. Food was exceptional. We had Texas Pot Roast. Salad with balsamic vinegar was beautiful. Bread was to die for. Service was outstanding.

I took my 80 year old mother and wonderful manfriend here on the spur of a moment, to spend time with my Mother. We have been in Texas from Savannah GA for over 40 years although never have eaten at this restaurant. So last night was the night. What a treat it was! Food was great! We all agreed! Samantha...

Went with friends to Steamboat House, hadn't been there in awhile. Forgot how interesting this restaurant is with all of the historical documents and pictures of Texas and famous Texas figures. Sam Houston himself is standing outside. Charlie the owner will chat with you, don't try to stump him on Texas trivia, he'll beat you every time. But enough about... More

We were two couples enjoying a nice dinner out. The place has some rich history but its open design with super high ceilings resulted in a high noise level so talking was difficult. The food was good and fresh but a bit overpriced. Service was mixed with at times attentive, then waiter pulling plates away when we not finished, to... More

We have lived in Houston for 8 years now and while driving by at lunch decided to try the Steamboat House. We were not disappointed! The venue was very clean and quiet. The service was outstanding (Cleopatra was great!) and the food awesome! You will not leave hungry. We will definitely plan a repeat visit.

Coming to the Steamboat House can better be described as an experience more than eating out. From the moment you enter you are engulfed in Texas history and character. Yes, the entire area is immaculate, historical and professional. The staff strikes a delicate balance between being available when needed but unobtrusive when you wish to savor the experience or speak... More

Senie and all the staff did a fantastic job organizing and arranging this milestone event for me. Not many people know it, but Steamboat is on Tom Horan's top 10 list of top steakhouses in the US. ! It's hard to serve 22 people, and get their food to them at one time, but, they did an amazing job of... More

went for a co-workers 30-year anniversary lunch .... there were 21 or 22 of us... they had us in the main dining room in a L-shape...pretty much you couldn't visit with anyone except for the person to the right or left of you. They put the tables way too close to the wall so you even had trouble getting out... More

We value feedback from our guests and apologize for the less than enjoyable experience with us. The table set up was different but specifically requested by the guest of honor whose 30th anniversary you were celebrating. We sincerely apologize for the incorrectly cooked and seasoned steak. We always are happy to make it right when given the opportunity. As we... More

Great food, staff and atmosphere. There are parts of Texas history all over the restaurant. Best fried green tomatoes, and the wedge salad is top notch.

Thank Caggy
