We had reservations for 8:15 PM, waited about 10 minutes in the bar with a nice jazz trio playing. Our table for 4 was near the back of the restaurant, and fairly quiet except for an intermittently noisy large table next door, full of birthday celebrating, and completely cordial. It did not disturb us in the least. We started with salad, beefsteak tomato and red onion, and this tomato tasted like real summer tomato, even in the dead of winter. With the heavy dose of blue cheese, this was a delightful meal in itself. We selected our wine with the help of the sommelier, a regional red from rural France, to pair with both steak and sea food. It was wonderful! We selected bone-in filet, regular filet, scallops, and salmon. Sides were lobster mac and cheese (yum!), and sauteed mushrooms. The steaks were ordered medium rare, and they came perfect temperature. Dessert was cheescake, and four of us just couldn't finish the huge piece. In retrospect, the bone-in filet was about the same as the regular filet, wonderful taste with no real taste advantage to leaving the bone with the meat. We have come again and again to Pappas Bros. Plan on about $125 per person, if you select a moderately priced wine ($50 to 100 range). It is well worth the price of the visit.

We had a great dinning experience. The wait staff was friendly, and attentive, yet very professional. Dinner was pricey, but absolutely DELICIOUS! Side dishes are large and can be shared. You MUST have the macaroni and lobster side...and the little box of truffles given at the end of dinner was a nice treat!

Visited Dallas for a business meeting (after having lived there for many years previously)--this was my 1st visit to Pappas Steaks. Although not inexpensive--It was a great meal (excellently prepared steak--and I've been to a lot of steak places), flawless service, magnificant wine list and an excellent, friendly, very knowledgable sommelier.
Definitely a repeat for nice business meal or any special occasion.

We arrived at 6:00 pm, the table was already prepared for our party on this special occasion. We were greeted with the most pleasant lady who took our drink order and shared the specials in a clear, understandable voice. Our drink glasses were kept full, the attention was not overbearing but always at hand. The steaks were perfectly prepared, the crab macaroni and cheese dish was marvelous and dessert was more than we could eat. Clearly this is one of the finest steakhouses in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex.

I dined here last night while attending a professional meeting. We were a group of over 50. Usually, even at great places, the food and service suffers at a catered meal. This was definitely not the case here. The 6 oz filet was perfect, tender and very tasty. The house salad, potatoes au gratin, asparagus, and the turtle pie dessert were also top notch.

Having dined with my wife at their place in Houston, I can attest that the Dallas restaurant is just as excellent, and I look forward to eating there again, soon.
