Came here with another couple right when they opened at 5 pm & were greeted & seated immediately. Interesting cowboy decor covering the walls! We had blackened prime rib, ribeye steak, & bacon-wrapped filet mignon--all were excellent & cooked to perfection over an open flame! Extensive wine list, too! Our waitress Heather was very efficient & friendly...made for a great... More

The wait to be seated for 5 people was a cramped 25 minutes with no where to sit. The bar is supposedly the last bar in Kerrville that still allows smoking, so waiting in there was not an option. I could not chew my chicken fried steak, and the mashed potatoes were drowned in gravy. One of my friends liked... More

I have eaten here on several occasions. I love the ambiance but have been disappointed with the food each time. I ordered Prime rib on 3 occasions and tonight I ordered the ribeye steak hoping for better results . All were sadly tough, full of gristle and the prime rib tasteless like it had been frozen and reheated. I am... More

This was our first time to the cowboy steak house. It was ok, but not great. We went for our anniversary and were seated next to a family with very noisy teenagers, that ruined it for me. We considered changing locations but they were very short handed that night and we tried to not create extra work for the staff.

The ambiance and the food were wonderful. Steaks were cut with a butter knife. The rack of lamb was cooked perfectly. Service was friendly but slow. It was a very busy Saturday night though.

A great place for good food at reasonable prices casual or more. The atmosphere is typical Texas with easy seating both casual or formal. the menu is diverse but contains a steak house flavor. Our group of 10 received fine treatment and walked out happy and full.

I have had horse meat that was better than the steak I got. The prices are also outrageous! I'd starve before I'd eat there again!

We were in the area for a family vacation and we wanted to eat somewhere we had not eaten before. This place is interesting in its decor. There were 8 of us and had no trouble getting a table, although we were there just prior to the dinner hour. It could proabably be busy later in the evening. They do... More

Nice town, really surprised there isn't more restaurants. That allowed me to try this place. Saw a post describing it as "tired". Exactly. Food was good, overpriced for sure, but good. Great service. Friendly. If I got stuck here I'd go again given the limited options but if a Salt Grass, Longhorns or Texas Land and Cattle came in I'd... More

Don't let the name fool you into thinking this is a tourist trap. This restaurant has great steaks grilled over flames, super wine list, and the service is wonderful. If you want a great steak and special treatment this is the place. The walls are covered in art work and they have a huge wine area. We saw people in... More
