Been driving by for years not wanting to exit the tollway, but finally decided to enjoy a couples dinner for 4 and everybody truly enjoyed themselves. Service was excellent, the decor captivating, and the food and beverages are terrific. Highly recommended...

I went to Steamboat house several times for different events (business lunch, reunions with friends, etc.) Last time I visited the Steamboat house was in October, when I went with my wife for a date night dinner. She was really impressed. This upscale restaurant reminds me of the restaurants I've seen in movies, where high society was gathering for soirees... More

Take a trip back in time to the beginning of Texas and the heroes who helped forge the Independence from Mexico and then the Statehood of the USA. Balance this unique setting with top steak and seafood, and Texas size deserts, and you have a winner.

Attended a business lunch on October 28. CHRIS was our waiter. He provided such astounding customer service that the whole table was blown away. His extensive knowledge of the menu, the wine pairings etc was so impressive. He allowed us time settle in and carry on our conversations all while tending to us respectfully. His service was amazing that we... More

Today we had a business lunch, Chris was our waiter, our experience could not have been better. Chris was very timely with each course of our meal, we never felt rushed and we never waited for anything. I will be requesting Chris to be our waiter during our next visit.

When I made our reservation for dinner I was specifically asked if it was a special occasion. I told them it was a 30th Wedding Anniversary. Now, my question is...why do they even bother to ask? Nothing special was done for us. Other than being told Happy Anniversary by 2 strangers (the hostess and our server), there was no other... More

It was so impressive from the outside and as you enter. The decor fascinating giving tribute to Sam Houston. Our waiter, Edwin was great. Interacted with us and congenial. The food was less than satisfying. The pricing much too high for the quality. The ribeye my husband and I ordered was less than satisfactory. Even when the outside rim was... More

Went for first time as part of Restaurant's Week. Very interesting place, many interesting Texas historical pictures and documents on walls. Could spend 1-2 hours just going around reading the material. Interesting place but how was the food - Food and service was excellent. Waiter was very attentive, friendly. My wife & I had the Restaurant Week menu items -... More

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.
