“Delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Food was fantastic and worth the price. I had the Filet cooked medium. It just melted in my mouth. Hubby had Snapper with crab meat and it was also very good. We also had the truffel mac n cheese. Best mac we have ever had. Also had the risotto and it was also very good. Dessert was the chocolate eruption. Everything was fantastic. Cheapest steak was about 35 sides range from 9 to 16. Beer 6.

“Anniversary night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

Upon first impression I was agasp. Ambiance, staff and decor fulfilled the hype. Beginning with greeting my party by name and an amuse bouche. Followed by a knowledgable wine attendant put us at ease. Our server, Robert, guided us through the menu with patience and detail. His recommendations hit the mark on all points. The maître d, John Paul, made sure our experience was up to our expectations. Overall we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be coming back as soon as possible

“Romantic Place-NOT”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

I chose The Steakhouse for our anniversary because it was listed as one of the "romantic" places in Galveston. The hotel and restaurant are vey nice. The food was good and prepared perfectly. Staff were excellent. That said, we felt like we were sitting in a sardine can. You could touch the people in the table next to you and still have a bend in your arm. Staff bumped your chair everytime they passed by, they couldn't help it since settings were so close together. It just made for a really uncomfortable evening. Dinner price was a bit spending for portion size, but I expected it to be pricey. I just didn't expect when you ordered crab legs, to get one leg. The Steakhouse has the potential for a very nice experience, but they have to work on the elbow room and space for staff to move without bumping into you all night.

“Best meal I've ever had!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

My husband and I had dinner here while on the island and we both agree this was probably the best meal we'e ever had. The service and waitstaff were excellent-very friendly and attentive. And the food was spectacular. We tried the tuna on crispy wontons and the fresh mozzarella brushetta for appetizers, and I had the filet with truffled Mac and cheese and my husband had the surf and turf special- a filet and colossal crab leg with garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious! This will definitely be our new go-to place for all special occasions!
