We went for a birthday dinner with friends and it was disappointing all around. Every step of the meal took forever - from the drinks to the bread (which we had to ask for), to the dessert. The waiter never came back to the table before we were out of water/food and desperately looking for her. I didn't have high... More

Sat at the bar, ate alone - evening of Jan 13th. Clam chowder was ok, crab cake was more or less ok. Neither dish was more than that. The major problem, however, was the service. Staff was rotating in and out of the bar - I genuinely have no idea who my bartender was. The guy who eventually brought me... More

I have been to M&S's in Maryland and Houston, as well as other Landry restaurants around the country. These are the same folks that own the Rainforest Cafes. M&S is a higher end themed restaurant with decent options for kids. It also works well for business dinners. And we get Landry's Rewards points every time we go, which earns us... More

Had a rough start (timing-wise) because we walked in and all tables were reserved. *** HINT -- > Make a RESERVATION*** The bar was packed, too...but we lucked and caught some people leaving that enabled us to seat two couples together. Our bartender gave us sound advice on food selections and the Glass Mountain Chardonnay was a hit!!! EXCELLENT experience... More

We had dinner 12/27/16 and Betty served us. She was very friendly and since we couldn't decide what we wanted (there was so many good choices), she helped us out. The crab dip appetizer was wonderful and Betty even brought us more pita chips, without us asking. We both has the scallops and again the meal was great. We never... More

Had a table for 6 Wed 21 Dec for a Christmas luncheon with some coworkers. While there were plenty of servers, service was unattentive. Server never asked for a drink order and we had to also ask to place our order. It was early and even though there were two larger parties, our server was not involved with them. Our... More
